I am very particular about my pens. As far as "cheap" pens go, I was (and still am) a huge TUL fan, but I borrowed a few of the Signo pens from my roommate and was pleasantly surprised. It has comparable if not better quality for a good price. I actually smile whenever I first start writing. It is that satisfying. I actually can't say I have a preference between these and my Montblanc rollerballs. Just about everyone who borrows it to jot down a note can't help but say, "This is a REALLY nice pen!"
One of the first tests I do with a pen is write quickly and see if the ink skips out on any areas. The Signos perform flawlessly. The next test is to see if it oozes too much ink or smears. I write in a very small and fine hand, so this is a common problem for me. Again, the micro point Signos do not disappoint. I never go anywhere without one clipped to my collar or pocket.
Some reviews said this was the wrong pen, and I think the pictures are causing confusion. I just wanted to confirm that I have ordered pens directly from this Amazon page and got the correct item. You are getting the 207 micro point (0.5mm), with gold lettering, and a solid silver barrel at the tip. The first picture of the product box is correct, the second image that has just a single pen is not correct. ---UPDATE #2: Current product photos are correct now.
As for how long the ink lasts, I've honestly never noticed because by the time they do run out, I've forgotten when I first bought them. If I had to make an estimate, I'd say at least 4 months with moderate/heavy usage as a full-time student. Obviously user experience will vary, but I've used these pens for a long time now, and I'd say that's average. If yours ran out much sooner, I'd say you either got a dud, or are a very heavy user.
Let me start by commenting on the ink. Uni-ball calls the ink "super ink." It is offered in a number of their pens. It claims to help prevent fraud. Well they are not kidding. I am a chemist and am required to use a "permanent" ink. I know from experience that if you spill methanol or chloroform on 90% of ink it will dissolve before you have a chance to grab a paper towel to attempt blotting. Not "super ink." I have tried. The ink will stand up to any solvent I have tried, Chloroform, Methanol, Ethanol, Acetone, THF, you get the idea. For normal use this may be a nice thing to know but not necessary. For someone working with things like this it is awesome. Let me add that the black ink works much better. The blue ink isn't as permanent.
The pen writes great. It almost always flows perfectly. I have had several that have stopped working about 2/3 of the way though the ink stick(?). However I have had many, more write until the last drop of ink. They are available (as you already know) in the 0.7mm and 0.5mm line. I prefer the 0.5mm but the 0.7mm is just fine. Nice and dark, no problem seeing, copying or scanning.
I like the feel of the pens. They are comfortable. If you want more comfort they offer a gel one (the premier), I have never tried. Any way they are retractable. Which I think is absolutely necessary. I loose caps within minutes. I have never had the retracting mechanism break on one. I have had them kind of wear out but not break completely.
Well I highly recommend these pens for any one not just chemists.
My only real complaint is the grip is a bit uncomfortable, owing to the hardness of the rubber.
Perhaps someone reading this will post a comment about how the refills fit into a more comfortable retractable body?
Even without that, this has become my favorite non-fancy pen.
BTW, I feel that honest, effective reviews can take the place of first-hand experiences that are lacking in online shopping. I've always appreciated the help I've received from other reviewers and work hard to return the favor as best as I can. I hope you found this review helpful and if there was anything you thought was lacking or unclear leave a comment and I'll do what I can to fix it.

Just as advertised. For only 2 pens, a little high priced, but it's ok.Published 5 days ago by Jayne
They write well, but I have realized I like pens with a better grip on the paper. The ink really just flows out, which is nice, but I like my handwriting to be very controlled. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Natalie Rihmland
