Verified Purchase
These magnets are not as strong as I had hoped, but I've been thoroughly spoiled by rare-earth magnets. I confirm that a single magnet from this pack is just strong enough to hold 7 sheets of 8.5 x 11-inch, 24-pound (90 g/m2) paper.

Very attractive, though.

Verified Purchase
The green-black UM-151 is the pen I use every day at work and home, and I have several. The ink color is conservative enough for work but a nice change from black, blue, or blue-black, and the ink is smooth, waterproof, and provided in a extremely generous quantity (lasts months for me).

(Minor) issues noted over a year of use:

1) Occasional skipping with one particular pen, but a firm tap on the paper corrected this easily.

2) The ink dried slowly on a postcard made of some kind of slick coated paper. It works great on all other papers I've used, though.

The UM-151 is a great pen and my standard carry. The ink is smooth and waterproof, and the reservoir is ample.

Verified Purchase
This is a great stapler. I was initially a little worried about availability of No.10 staples, but the stapler's performance is so good that it completely trumps the resupply concern. It really takes surprisingly little effort to use, and the fact that JetPens sells compatible colored staples is a bonus!

Verified Purchase
This is pretty nifty and works exactly as described. My only problem was figuring out how to fill the pen cartridge with water, since I can't read the Japanese instructions. The cartridge is rigid plastic (not squeezable), and its opening is small (water won't flow in freely). I used a small eyedropper to fill the cartridge.

Other than that, my only other observation is that writing fades pretty quickly, which may hinder your ability to review your work. On the other hand, it definitely saves a lot of paper!

Verified Purchase
This pen is great-- very light, comfortable to hold, and lays down ink very smoothly. It's stylish in an understated way and feels tough enough to take anywhere, which means that it'll get a lot more use than my possibly-too-pretty Watermans. Also, you get some nice flexibility from the fact that the nibs are easy to change.

Verified Purchase
A very bright, neon, saturated, in-your-face pink. The pen is lightweight and writes very smoothly (always starts immediately, no skipping).

Verified Purchase
This is a great color, noticeably brighter than the slightly darker/redder Hi-Tec-C orange (http://www.jetpens.com/Pilot-Hi-Tec-C-Gel-Ink-Pen-0.4-mm-Basic-Colors-Orang e/pd/88). In general, I prefer the 0.38 mm Uni-ball Signo and Style Fit tips over the 0.4 mm Hi-Tec-C needle point, but this is a very nice pen and the apricot orange color makes it one of my favorites.

Verified Purchase
The pen is light in the hand and writes very smoothly. I think the needle point would particularly suit someone who has a light touch, whereas a Signo DX would probably be better for someone who likes to put more pressure on the paper.

The blue is much closer to the "sapphire" than the "aqua" shown in the photo samples, to the extent that I double-checked the label to make sure that it really was aqua (-AL suffix).

Verified Purchase
Very roomy! Ten pens take up less than half the capacity, but maybe this means that I need more pens?

Dimensions are ~8 x ~3.5 inches.
