Uni-ball Signo UM-151 gel ink pens, also known as Signo DX, are known for their smooth writing and exceptional ink quality. And, to everyone's delight, there is a sea of colors and tip sizes to choose from. Find the perfect pen for any task, whether it's writing meticulous notes, marking your calendar, or decorating your scrapbook with colorful captions.

Everything about this pen, from its solid construction to its carefully-formulated ink, ensures a wonderful writing experience. The sturdy tip does not bend or break, even with heavy-handed use. The pigment-based ink flows smoothly and is waterproof, fade-resistant, and feather-resistant. Much of that is due to special viscous properties of the ink. The ink is viscous while in the barrel, but as it passes through the pen tip during writing, the viscosity drops. This results in smooth ink flow. Immediately after it hits the paper, the ink returns to its viscous state, which prevents feathering. You are left with beautiful clean lines that you can enjoy for a long time!

This pen has a stronger tip and better ink than others. I've tried the Hybrid Technica and Hi-Tec-C pens and I disliked how fragile their tips were, you feel like you're going to break it if you write too fast. In addition, the ink from this pen dries significantly faster than the others', which is really nice if you're going to be writing on a semi-glossy surface like taking notes in a textbook, writing a card, or writing left-handed. After I tried this pen, I never bothered trying another manufacturer's again.

This pen is fantastic. Due to a previous person's review stating that the pen was too scratchy I bought this .28 size and the .38 size. While the pen does have a scratchy quality due to the small size I found that I acually liked the drag on the paper and that my handwriting was far more legible.
The black - blue color ink is a great mix of the two colors, that also looks unique.
The pen ink lasted a lot longer than I had expected, and that was with daily all day use. I will definitely be buying this pen again.

I love these pens. Bought a few in Europe and couldn't find any here in the States. Thank you, JetPens!!

The ink is very quick to dry, it will never skip or sploch. Nor will it leak if left in contact with paper or clothing. Amazing writing instrument for those who wish to keep neat, fine print.

One thing to look out for is how fragile these pens are. Because of the precision design, the ballpoint is easily damaged. This isn't to say that this pen won't last you till it's dry, but don't drop it on the tip. I broke two like this =\. Gotta kick my twirling habit.

Overall: Best writing instrument evar.

I bought this along with a 0.25mm Pilot Hi-Tec-C; I've used almost half of the ink Signo DX and almost none of the Hi-Tec-C. The reinforced tip on the Signo makes it much easier to write quickly without skips in the ink. The ink dries very quickly, which is also a nice feature. I also have an fairly unused Pentel Hybrid Technica 0.3mm which stays unused due to the same weak tip as the Hi-Tec-C and its slow drying ink.

The blue-black ink appears black, even if you're looking at it hard. I'd recommend getting a lighter blue if you want blue looking ink.

My go-to pen in graduate school! After failing with the Uni-ball Signo UM-201 0.18 mm gel ink pens, I moved up to this 0.28 in blue black, black, and regular blue. I loved these pens for quick class notation and studying for exams. These pens saved my wrist during the infamous "blue book" tests that you typically find in humanities and social science classes. Ball points, which most students use during those strenuous writing feats, cause great pain and soreness afterwards. This pen is truly a great basic pen, and I recommend these when blue or black ink is required for a lengthy writing task.
