Review on Value
If you want an inexpensive pen that still gives you high quality writing performance, then you can’t go wrong with these BIC Round Stic Ball Pens. You might be skeptical, I mean, at eight cents a pen who can blame you? We all have heard the phrase, “you get what you pay for” but then again, we all have heard the phrase” less is more.” So which is it? In this case, definitely the later applies! This pen is the real deal! As soon as you uncap these pens you are ready to go, no need to scribble on a piece of paper just to get the ink going. Finally, you can have more than one pen that reliably works well at the office, at home, in your backpack, etc. And again, at eight cents a pen, you can stand to lose a few here and there without burning a hole in your wallet.
Note: This is an Amazon add-on item, which means that if you spend $25 or more and have this product in your basket, it ships free!!!
Review on Quality
Probably the best inexpensive pen you’ll own. These pens are lightweight, durable and they simply get the job done. Generally, just a great go-to pen for every day writing in journals, jotting down grocery lists, etc. With this pen, you don’t have to worry about the ink smearing or smudging. Additionally, you don’t have to guess if your pen is out of ink because the the barrel of the pen is transparent – all you have to do is look at it to know if its low or out of ink! For the nit-picker, the pen does have some performance issues when it is left uncapped for even the briefest of moments. This can be corrected with a little scribbling on scratch paper but still, it’s something that some users have complained about. Also, the pen ink isn’t really black, it’s more of a very dark grey; personally, I don’t really mind that. Overall, Amazon reviewers give this product an esteeming 4.7 out of 5 stars with over 2,500 reviews.
