Uni Mitsubishi Propus 2 Double-Sided Highlighter - 4.0 mm / 0.6 mm Twin Tip - Sky Blue - UNI PUS-101TN.48
  I just love the Propus..., March 26, 2014
I just love the Propus & Propus 2 highlighters. This particular number is perfect for my needs, but I must confess that I do not use it as chronically or extensively as the initial reviewer who uses highlighters as a full-time student. I use it every day, but no extensively. I own no less than 15 Propus and Propus2 colors, and it is definitely a go-to pen. The versatility of having both wide & fine points in one pen is pretty cool and for my purposes, they last about as long as expected, if not longer. I do love the blue, but if you need more than one, get yourself one of the hot pink Propus 2's and you will NOT be sorry.
Tombow Ippo Pinch-Point Wooden Pencil Sharpener - Blue - TOMBOW SM-IP41
  Terrific little sharpener,..., March 26, 2014
Terrific little sharpener, more durable than expected, and of course compact! I own no less than 30 types of sharpeners. Some might call me obsessive, others might say I was a connoisseur of sharpeners. Regardless, I not only ordered this product, but I RE-ordered it....dare I say more than once. I thought the spring would break and it has not - I thought the clip would break but it hasn't (yet). My only complaint, since I need to give you at least one - is that once the clip opened in my pencil case, and a few pencil shavings were released.... but this only happened once, so it did not detract from giving this little number FIVE STARS! And for $3.30 USD.....WHAT A DEAL?! Not convinced?? Order it and you too will believe! :)
Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.25 mm - Black Ink - PENTEL BG202-A
  In general, I don't just..., December 1, 2013
In general, I don't just love Slicci pens, I LOVE them. Love. However, I would steer you toward the 0.3, 0.4 (my fave) or 0.7mm which I have given a 5 out of 5 stars (but would love to give them a 10 out of 5 stars if possible!). The 0.25mm Slicci skips a lot, always feels on the verge of dried out, and with the least amount of pressure, bends the tip rendering it useless. It feels strange giving any Slicci 2 out of 5 stars, b/c I use this brand the most of ANY pen I own (and I own more than most here can imagine) but the 0.25mm doesn't do the name justice, and I think they need to either improve its function/design or just stick to what they do better than well, wider width tips. Buy the Slicci, just not the 0.25. 0.3 and 0.4 are plenty fine - and the 0.3 seems to write like a 0.25 of other brands, so you won't sacrifice in fine-ness, but will get significantly better quality if you just size up. Slicci is a bargain for the quality, and once you find the width that works, buy a lot, but watch out if you store the refills - I've had issues with ink drying even in fully packaged refills, but that's for another review! :)
Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.7 mm - Black Ink - PENTEL BG207-A
  Let me prefaces my review..., December 1, 2013
Let me prefaces my review by saying how much I adore the Pentel Slicci pens in general. I love them, and have just about every size in many colors - but my second favorite is this, the 0.7mm black Gel Ink Pen. My fave is the same pen in a 0.4mm size (which appears not to be in stock currently). This pen is fantastic...does not skip and produces a very nice dark line. It does tend to use a lot more ink than the 0.4mm but then again that goes without saying since it's a 0.7mm. Considering the price, quality and usability, this pen is clearly a 5 out of 5 stars and I would HIGHLY recommend this to one and all. But since you are still on this site if you are currently reading my review.... go put the 0.4mm AND the 0.3mm in your cart. However, after purchasing all the other widths, I recommend you avoid the 0.25mm width because I find it skips more than it writes, and even considering the thin width of the line, it is nowhere near dark enough. For the tiny width lines, I would go to another model instead of the Slicci (several here on Jet Pens are amazing) or consider a drawing pen. Anyway, I would give the Slicci 0.3 - 0.7 ten stars if that were possible!
Uni Propus Window Double-Sided Highlighter Pen - 4.0 mm / 0.6 mm Twin Tip - Green - UNI PUS102T.6
  I think at this point,..., December 1, 2013
I think at this point, I have well over 10 Propus Highlighters. I like the softness of the edges, ability to fill in with the fine-line end and the precision. The only drawback I have experienced isn't universal throughout all of them, but has happened with this product - how long it can last. Some have full lives, others seem to have a very limited life of use. I give this product 5 stars, but think it would be 4.5 stars if that was a choice. I will continue to use and purchase this product in many colors, but don't expect all of them to be super long-lasting.
B.B.Begonia Leaf-it Memo Note Set (20 Sheets / Leaf) - Maple - Yellow - C209YL003S
  I agree with the initial..., May 4, 2013
I agree with the initial reviewer - they are beautiful. But as far as usefulness, no so much. The glue is not up to snuff, and if they functioned more like brand name Post-It notes, I would buy tons of them. But they tend to stick together, and leave a layer of glue on the next sheet. I do, occasionally use them on calendars or notepads and they look adorable. I use permanent markers on them because the sheets tend to be a tad resistant to non-durable gel ink pens. the cuteness factor is a 5/5 but the usefulness and price factor into it, it brings me to an overall rating of 3/5.
Adhesive Memo Notes - Animal Series - Panda - 2.8" X 2.9" - 50 sheets  - MZD-01
  This adhesive panda note..., May 4, 2013
This adhesive panda note pad is definitely adorable. But at 5.75, I would expect a more usable pad. It gets a 5/5 for cuteness, and for the idea...but after having it for a while (months), the adhesive on the sheets became (or may have always been) overly aggressive, and the sheets were pretty hard to pull apart. If this worked like a real post-it pad, I would not mind the price tag. But for the price, I would have expected sheets that were easier to remove. If you are too aggressive pulling them off, they tear, leaving their sticky part on the pad. I actually wanted to give this a 2 of 5, but the cuteness factor made me go for 3 of 5. If you're looking for cute, and pricey...get it. But use it right away, so if you can't pull the pages apart, you know it's not for lack of trying it right away!
Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.3 mm - Blue Black Ink - PENTEL BG203-CA
  This pen rocks! I have..., May 4, 2013
This pen rocks! I have more than ten of them, and own other sizes and colors. I find the .3 pretty thin, but still substantial enough to use. The thinner one actually is (believe or not) TOO fine, so I go with the .3, .4 or .7. It's reliable, refillable, and extremely nice to write with. For the price, it's a great deal, and I am a devoted Slicci purchaser at least 20 times over. In fact, every time I place an order, I include even more...and to date, my favorite color is the blue black ink. Great buy, great pen. HIGHLY recommended.
Platinum Preppy Fountain Pen - 05 Medium Nib - Blue Black Ink - PLATINUM PPQ-200 3 05
  I think the Preppy Fountain..., May 4, 2013
I think the Preppy Fountain Pens are just terrific. I would have given this a 4/5 because the cap breaks on about a third of my Preppies, but the low price of this pen makes up for the cap issue, at least for the most part. I find them reliable, and pretty darn leak-resistant on average. If it were not for the questionable cap integrity, I would be completely raving about them. I purchase the refills, and as long as the cap stays intact, I can keep refilling them. I find this a bargain at the price, and love the fine as well as the medium point. At this price, this is a win/win if you can get past the cap issue. I order enough so if I have to throw one away for lack of cap, then so be it!
Platinum Preppy Fluorescent Highlighter Pen - Yellow - PLATINUM CSCQ-150 30
  I own no less than 8..., May 4, 2013
I own no less than 8 Preppy Platinum Fluorescent Highlighters in many colors. The Yellow happens to be my personal favorite. If there was a score of 4.75 out of 5 I would have chosen that, b/c the only substantial negative is that it uses the refillable "ink" quickly relative to most highlighters. The up sides are that the color is both bold yet still transparent and extremely smooth. Even though I tend to blow through ink, I do appreciate that they are refillable. The drawback of most Preppy pen products (disposable fountain pens, etc.) is that the caps tend to split, rendering them useless, but so far my highlighters seem to have mostly been spared from this occasional product (outside of one of them). These are great highlighters and I would highly recommend them!
