after reading other reviews,...
after reading other reviews, I decided to get one of these. I LOVE IT! This is a great step-up from the platinum preppy. This pen has a beautiful and smooth-writing nib, and the ink in the included cartridge is pretty dark and nice. the medium nib writes about equivalent to an 0.7 or 0.8 gel/liquid ink pen. I stuck in the cartridge, and after leaving it nib down for about 10 minutes, I was able to start writing. the converter looks a bit cheap, but I haven't tried it yet.

I had expected to receive...
I had expected to receive a cheap fountain pen, regarding the low price. How surprised I was to hold such a significant pen with a quite heavy metal-body in my hand. The nib is perfect for me. I am a lefty and can use this fountain pen without smudging.
Writing with this pen is such fun, I desperately need some inspiration and topics, I feel the to handwrite, now that I own this pen.
I can not comment on the converter, since I used the PILOT cartridge with black ink that came with the pen.
I might order a second one, so I can have use it with a nice complementary colour, orange or pink.
The ergonommics are not perfect, because the ridge (where the cap touches the pen) is quite sharp which is annoying when I write more than just a few lines.
Still 5 points, because with free shipping in the US the value what you get, for the price you pay, is amazing!

Wow. If I had to summarize...
Wow. If I had to summarize this pen in one word, it would be quality.
The smooth and elegant design is what caught my eye first. The nib writes with a creamy consistency, no scratches to be found. With so much quality, but a smaller price tag, I knew I had to order a backup (white tiger). I also ordered one for my brother (black crocodile) and he tells me that he loves it. I have gotten many compliments on the pen and it has only been three days since I first recieved it. This is such an upgrade from my earlier Chinese made fountain pens I had purchased from Vietnam. I can't express exactly how pleased I am with these pens except say that I can't seem to put it down. I would suggest this pen to every fountain pen lover out there looking for a good experience.
Jetpen's shipping speed is outrageously fast and only helps to fuel my fountain pen addiction. Thank you!!
