I bought the green, orange,...
I bought the green, orange, and blue. I love this highlighter sooo much. If you like those crazy bright colors, then don't buy this. I like the softer duller colors. Also you have to keep your eraser part clean or else when you erase it, it will smudge.

I work in an office where...
I work in an office where I highlight often- whether articles, papers, forms (to show where to sign), as well as on my calendar- so I may need to make edits/change things throughout the day and week. These highlighters are the best for this! They are not very bright (I purchased pink, orange and yellow), but the fact that I can erase them makes them better than any other highlighter ever. They are also incredibly comfortable. I use them with the frixion pens so that I can edit all the information in my calendars.
You do need to let the ink dry for a few minutes before you go to erase, or it will smudge. and I would recommend using the friction pens with the highlighter since they are similar. Using any other pen can be disastrous (incredibly messy markups). If you do use another pen, make sure to write with it first and then highlight, and use a gel pen. The cheap ballpoint pens in most offices have a hard time writing over this ink.
I will say that I use mine so much I did have to re-order them. I would recommend getting several colors and seeing which you like the most, and then ordering more of your favorite- they don't last very long!!

I LOVE my orange highlighter....
I LOVE my orange highlighter.
It writes like a champ. It use it the most of any in my set, and yet it hasn't dried out yet. It erases COMPLETELY. I wouldn't settle for anything less. I keep them on my desk in the original plastic package - the erasers stay clean so I haven't had any problem with that.
It is worth taking a peek at your eraser if you carry it around in a purse or backpack. If it has gotten dirty, erase on some scrap paper until it comes clean again. It will smudge your paper if you use it when the eraser is dirty.

I was a little iffy about...
I was a little iffy about if it really erased well enough to not see that I made any markings, so I tested it out and WOW! not only is the colour of the ink dark enough to not skip over the text, it really erases! at first I wasn't pressing down hard enough and was a little upset, but if you apply enough force, you can't see the markings at all! :)
