I LOVE this pen, and all the DX UM-151s. I teach at the U of Utah, and this is the pen I use to grade all of my student's papers. The tip is fine enough that I can make little corrections in the margins and between lines; the "Bordeaux Black" color is red enough to seem like it's chastising my students for their silly mistakes, but not so red that they feel violated (turns out that bright red pens have a negative effect on students); and the smoothness is unlike any other pen with a tip this fine. The "blotchiness" that another reviewer mentioned is, for me, more like a fountain pen's "flair" once you get more used to it (perfect for writing kanji). Finally, one of the greatest features about this gel pen compared to every other gel pen I've used is the speed at which it dries--it's a smooth, fine gel ink that won't smudge. Awesome, awesome pen. Also great for writing in the margins of books.

I absolutely love these pens. I have the black and the bordeaux black in 0.38. The line thickness in perfect for editing small text and writing notes. The tip is very sturdy yet delicate. I love the feel of this pen. Good weight--not too heavy nor too light--and the plastic barrel fits my grip rather well. It is a delight to write with and I LOVE the bordeaux black color, in fact it might be my favorite color at the moment. My one complaint, and it is very annoying, is that the ink frequently runs dry and I need to scribble on scrap paper to get it going again. This is the one reason why this pen hasn't surpassed my other two favorites: the Hi-Tec C and the Slicci 0.4 pens.

This pen could be my new favorite. It's comfortable to hold and writes extremely smoothly, and the ink is a beautiful, unusual, but dignified burgundy color (I mean, bordeaux!). I just wish there were refills available!

the color wasn't dark as I thought. I was looking for more black/tint of red color but It looks fine on the paper and I like it.

I didn't think I would like this size, but I got this anyway because I really wanted to try this color. Let me say, I love this size! It's great to use in small calendars. It's not as thin as I thought it would be, and this color is great.

I will say that the ink blobs at times. It happens with another Signo gel pen I got in 0.5 mm.

This is the best color. I like things which are subtle, and this is just right. Not black, but not a shocking red either. (Red always makes me think of school when I write with it.) And so long as I don't push down too hard it writes perfectly.

I love this pen so much! The colour is such a beautiful maroon/burgundy. I use this for my school notes when I'm bored of plain old black/blue. It's so much more colourful than black/blue but dark enough to read easily. The pen itself writes beautifully, very smooth like all the other Uniball Signo DX pens, with no skipping or blotting at all.
