I love UM-151. Just one...
I love UM-151. Just one thing I really don't understand, though. These guys are $2.5 each, and if my math is correct, if I buy 8 it should be $20. Now this set is actually $1 more expensive!! Shouldn't it be the same price, if not cheaper?

I've had a limited edition...
I've had a limited edition pink Uni-ball Signo UM pen with me (exactly the same like this pen, but has a polka-dot design) and it survived for a LOOONG time. These pens are my favorite, as they have an excellent quality.
- Smooth and easy writing
- Comfortable grip
- Even though it's stated as a 'gel pen' it doesn't smear, smudge, and dries quickly
- Ink color is vivid and matches the pen color (I hate it when colors are lighter than how they looked like!)
- Doesn't bleed
- Long pen lifespan. No, really :p
- Expensive; for me, but it's WORTH IT.

I've been a big fan of...
I've been a big fan of the Hi-Tec C (0.4mm) pens ever since I laid my hands on them. Compared to the Hi-Tec C pens, however, the Uni-ball (DX) UM-151 (0.38mm) is much thinner compared to the Hi-Tec C. I personally love how smooth these pens can write without any scratch noise. In addition, IT'S WATERPROOF! The Hi-Tec C pens are not waterproof (one drop of water can mess up the ink on paper).
I gave a Hi Tec C pen for my boyfriend last year and he broke the tip of it. I bought these pens this year for him and he said he absolutely loved it (better than the Hi-Tec C).

I use these to draw what...
I use these to draw what I see with the microscope (histology). These colors are good for most of the stains I use, but replace the pink with "pure pink" to get a better set.
This ink does not run, even if I spill alcohol or water on a drawing - which happens a lot more often than it should.
I highly recommend these for laboratory use.

Darn, I was just about to order these, and they're sold out. Please restock! ^_^ I LOVE the couple of DX UM-151s that I have - now I need them in more colors!
