I was pretty disappointed in this product. As a student you would expect a long lasting pen. However, these pens "run out" of ink so fast, even though it still has ink in the tank. A real let down, not worth the money.

The pen wouldn't write most of the time even do there was still full ink in them.

These gel pens do not last very long. I find they dry out really quickly and then they are just useless.

This whole bundle of pens is totally worthless. Sure, you get a lot of product for very little money, but it's not worth it. Some of the pens didn't work at all and the ones that did, the ink didn't last no time before they were out.

Both of these are basically "Walmart brand".

PROS: They come in a barrel of 30 pens; good selection. Also include a small amount of sparkly gel pens.

CONS: They all have trouble writing full words without needing to be played around with to get the ink to flow again. Very frustrating! Every single pen! Also, they were on the pricey side, $8/ 30.

Recently purchased were 2 more additional sets of these pens, at different times, different months even. EACH of those two sets ALSO performed as poorly as the original gel pens, with ink flow problems with each individual pen, and since the totality of these pens engulfs several different lot numbers, it is very plain to see that the problem is not a localized one, and is something that the consumer should expect to encounter if considering purchasing these pens.

*AS AN ULTIMATELY CONCLUSIVE END NOTE, I feel that had the ink flow problems that occurred with every single pen NOT even occurred at ALL, THESE PENS WOULD STILL HAVE REPRESENTED THEMSELVES TO HAVE BEEN ON THE HIGHER END OF THE CONSUMER'S PRICE INDEX POINT. To have ink flow problems stacked on TOP OF THIS then with not a couple in each pack, but ALLL that each pack contained really left a bad taste in this consumer's mouth.*

With the large quantity of gel pens I go through on a regular basis, I will exercise one of the other options I know of in my future.
