, October 18, 2011
I'm a huge stationary nerd, so as soon as I saw these highlighters on JetPens, I
had to have them. The hook was their nifty window so you don't over-highlight.
I'm a chronic over-highlighter-- As in, I'll go well into the next sentence if I
don't think about it and stop myself-- so these seemed *amazing*. Honestly,
though, the windows aren't the best feature.
The Propus Highlighters are double-sided. That means that one side is a regular
(windowed) highlighter and the other side is a thin marker tip that uses the
same highlighter ink. "What would I need that for," you ask? Don't worry: I
thought the same thing. When I started using the Propus, though, I realized it
was changing the way I read textbooks. Now, I make a thick highlight over the
key point, word, or phrase with the regular highlighter side. When I get to
important sub-details, I use the thin point to underline, box in, draw arrows,
star, and even write notes. With this new highlighting technique, I feel much
more productive and understand what I'm reading better. These highlighters are
a must for students!

I really like these highlighters. The window isn't as great as I had hoped, but
it's good. You have to use the highlighter at quite an angle for it to actually
be worthwhile, but if I have something to highlight that needs to be done very
carefully, they're great.
The thing I like most about them is the ink color. All of the pens have bright
inks, and all of the colors allow the text below to be easily visible. I haven't
tried to photocopy them, but they appear to be light enough that the text will
show through on a copy. I've never really had luck using blue and green
highlighters because they're always too dark to allow the text to be easily
The other thing I like is the scent (or lack thereof). I can't smell the
highlighters when I'm using them, but I think I smelled something when I brought
the pen to my nose (it's very mild or it's just my imagination, I'm not sure

I did not need these highlighters, because I have a lot in stock. But I still
bought them because the colors looked so beautiful. In real, the look just as
nice as on the picture. My experience is: Jetpens always ships fast to Europe.

The Uni-ball Propus Window...
This review is from Uni-ball Propus Window Soft Color Double-Sided Highlighter Pen - 4.0 mm / 0.6 mm Twin Tip - 5 Color Set
, July 4, 2011
The Uni-ball Propus Window is my favorite highlighter out of the whole Jetpens
collection. The window is a neat design feature although it probably is not
something many people would find useful. I do fund myself occasionally glancing
through it to see the end of the sentence or text I am highlighting, I hate when
I go over and begin the next sentence on accident. With or without the window I
would not change my opinion on this product, the color intensity, ink flow,
style of the duel tips, and feel on paper makes it far superior over any other
highlighter I have tried and I have at least one of every highlighter Jetpens
offers and many more. The orange is my favorite but I think every color is great
and I especially like the soft color line. The width of the tip on the window
side is awesome which is why I think the window design is great even if you
never use the window. The ink rarely shows through on any type of paper I have
used and the flow is so good that every stoke is uniform without any heavy spots
at the beginning or end of the stroke. I would recommend this line of
highlighters to anyone who asked my opinion. Hope this helps someone make a good
