  My purchases: I bought..., May 24, 2012
My purchases: I bought B2P in colors black and blue.

In dim-lighting, the identical barrel coloration and design of each pen make the pens very difficult to differentiate. I think the only noticeable ink indicators are only visible under brighter light: the lighter blue ink of the blue pen, the pen clicker colors, and the written color indicators on the pen labels. I have found it too easy to accidentally presume the dark-blue barrel of the black pen indicates blue ink, or vice versa, since the barrels are the exact same in dark-blue plastic coloring. I think this is a minor, or maybe major, problem, with implications for many specific writing needs and particular environment conditions; and due to it, I have limited my use of B2P pens for informal, casual, non-professional use only.

My issues with the B2P identical barrel coloration aside, for such a reasonable price, and very cool concept, buying several B2P pens seemed like a great idea, and I would buy more again. The pen cost is inexpensive for the higher quality of pens I believe I have with my B2Ps compared to even cheaper alternatives. So, considering the low-cost alone, and noble cause to bring awareness to environmental implications, overall I think the B2Ps are better than OK. The ink performance is good, and up to the standard of quality I have gratefully experienced from all Pilot pens. In the future though, I would consider buying or using only one of the three colors of B2P ink options available... I hope this information is helpful to you!
