They work great! Mar 25, 2009
By Alan Holyoak
I spent 10 years teaching in a blackboard and chalk environment, but I changed jobs several years ago and I've been teaching in a whiteboard and dry erase marker world ever since.
I have to admit that I was hesitant to make the switch - people don't like change, but I've come to appreciate the increased flexibility that dry erase markers can give.
I routinely use 5 or more different colors of markers in my zoology courses (black, red, green, blue, orange, and sometimes others), and I've been particularly pleased with Expo Dry Erase Markers.
I find these markers to have brilliant colors, I quite like the orange ones :-)
Of course, no marker lasts forever, and like any marker, once these start to run out or the tip dries out it's a gonner. Until then though they work great.
- I like the fact that you can tell when the pen cap is firmly seated - a must for lengthening marker life
- I also like how the pen cap fits easily and securely into the opposite end of the marker so you don't lose it while you are writing.
- I like that fact that the color of ink in the marker is clearly indicated on the pen body.
- The chisel-point tip on these markers is too fine. When a marker is brand new you have plenty of ink, but because the ink tip is so fine you have to hold the pen at a particular angle to get a wide enough like to make a bold mark that is wide enough for students at the back of a 100-seat lecture hall to see. Then by the time the pen nib gets into a workable shape to produce a nice heavy line every time you shortly run out of ink.
All in all, these are very good pens, but not without some minor issues, thus 4 stars for teaching. These would be worthy of 5 stars if they were used only for personal in-home white message board use.
I hope this was helpful.

Convenient, cheap. Mar 11, 2007
By James Stein
The markers are dark and clearly visible, while the eraser is fairly thorough. The box comes with a plastic-molded container (as you see in the picture), with double-sided tape for easy, stable, mounting on a wall beside the whiteboard. For the low price, this is unbeatable.

Nice colors but cheap holder and eraser Nov 20, 2010
The markers are very nice and vibrant colors, but the holder (which is the primary reason I bought this set) is made out of very cheap plastic and cracked at the corners the moment I got it out of the box for the first time. The eraser is a little better, but still pretty light and seemingly non-durable... so far nothing happened to it yet, but I feel it'll probably tear soon after some use.

Good Oct 12, 2011
Markers are of good quality, last long, and are used everyday. Eraser is light and easy to store. The only trouble is that some colors are harder to erase, but black gets off the whiteboard the cleanest.
