I bought this based on the reviews, but don't like it. It does erase well, but it has a drawback: the highlighter covers up and dulls the ink of the text you're highlighting, rather than making it pop out. If you erase the highlighting, the text stands out again, so the problem is that the yellow sits on top of the ink, making the black text look gray.
To the reviewer above -- the highlighter does erase very cleanly and thoroughly, but you have to use the built-in eraser on the tip of the pencil, not a pencil eraser. All you're doing with the pencil tip is bringing the heat-sensitive ink to a high enough temperature. So a hairdryer would probably do the trick more easily if you're erasing a whole chapter or something.
