I bought this based on the reviews, but don't like it. It does erase well, but it has a drawback: the highlighter covers up and dulls the ink of the text you're highlighting, rather than making it pop out. If you erase the highlighting, the text stands out again, so the problem is that the yellow sits on top of the ink, making the black text look gray.

To the reviewer above -- the highlighter does erase very cleanly and thoroughly, but you have to use the built-in eraser on the tip of the pencil, not a pencil eraser. All you're doing with the pencil tip is bringing the heat-sensitive ink to a high enough temperature. So a hairdryer would probably do the trick more easily if you're erasing a whole chapter or something.

I purchased the yellow, blue, and green version of this highlighter. They are amazing. They do erase perfectly. I have had zero trouble erasing anything after I highlight it. If i had to give one small tiny negative thing about this highlighter I would say that the yellow one is a bit darker than most regular highlighters. I prefer one that is very bright yellow. The other colors are perfect, and you should definitely purchase a few of these.

it's not really erase- it's more like smudge it out.. and u can actually do the trick with ur body temp warm fingers.
the highlight does cover the inks--make black look gray.
takes a while to dry up.
and the last part, using the eraser tip will smudge inks, especially pencil.

1 star for fast delivery. 1 star for the good erase.

The utility of these...
The utility of these things is great. Simple to use, bright, and erasable - what more could you ask for as a college student with rented books?

I bought a multi-pack of these from a local office supply store and unfortunately after only about 2 weeks of use they're all drying up! I will use one and after about 100 pages of various highlighting tasks, it will no longer be visible because it has dried up. Start using a new one, and another 100 pages in, it too has become too light to see.

I thought perhaps extended use in my hand had faded the ink due to heat, so I popped it in the freezer overnight then let it thaw out. No go, still unable to use it because it leaves so little ink on the page. These have simply been stored on their sides on my work table, not in a jar with the ink away from the tips.

Suffice to say, this is a disappointment.

Great highlighter, by far one of my favs for taking quick notes. Erases perfectly with out leaving any smears of yellow behind. THe only promblem that I have with this is that is that it sometimes smears the ink when earsing if the ink isn't give enough time to dry before highlighting, and it always smears pencil, even before highlighting. However, if you wait a while before highlighting, or you earse carefully and slowly, it works perfectly. No probs with text.

4.5!!!
