After a painstaking season of searching, I finally stumbled onto this one. It seemed to have everything I was looking for: a plain black hardcover, an elastic band to keep it closed, a ribbon bookmark, lined pages. And after using it for a few months, here is my review of what the differences are.
The Essentials notebook itself is about a half-inch or so wider than a Moleskine, which I didn't mind. The pages are thicker, making them ink pen friendly (the writing even from an ink pen is hard to see from the underside of the page). There are also margins, so the lines don't go from end to end; the margins are fairly thin, so they didn't really bother me.
If both were free, I would go with a Moleskine partly because I've used it for years, but also because the overall quality looks and feels a bit better to me. However, I am totally satisfied with the Essentials notebook because I was able to get two of them for the price of one Moleskine notebook, and the Moleskine notebook, while still superior, is not doubly superior. So if you're looking for something similar to a Moleskine without breaking the bank, this one is definitely worth a try. If you don't need a two-pack, I'm sure the singular one is floating around somewhere.
The price is more than competitive with other brands, such as Moleskine, but with better quality paper. Not as good as Leuchtturm, but quite good factoring in it is roughly 2/3rds of the price of Leuchtturm.
The paper in these notebooks is thick and heavy. Perfect for sketching and writing. I'm not sure of the makeup of the paper, but it gives off archival grade quality. Time will tell.
If you're looking for a step up in quality without a hike in price, definitely buy these. Buy more than you need as well, because they're not often in stock with Amazon.
After so much searching I have FINALLY found the perfect journal. I've only filled up about 10 pages but it doesn't take me long to know if it's going to hold up or not, and this definitely will. I was trying out some other journals that "creaked" a lot when opening (like the Amazon Basic's journal) which always made me so nervous, this does not do that. No first pages are falling out (I had that trouble with Moleskines) and the paper feels pretty thick. My favorite before this was Top's Idea Collective but I always hated the pattern on the front and I had a love/hate with the yellow paper, I think the white paper in this journal is nice. I love that this journal is as basic as you could make it while still having the must-haves: elastic strap to keep it closed, the ribbon, and the envelope in the back. The hardcover isn't as thick as the Top's journal but it's still sturdy, though it did come with some dings on the top front (you can see in the picture), but I don't really mind.
So far I have used stickers, decorative tape, white-out, and scotch tape and glue sticks for adding pictures and it's all holding up great. If you like adding all that sort of stuff to your journals, this works out awesome for that. I've been using the Uni-Ball Gel Pen Medium/0.7mm and included a picture of the back of a page I have written on. Definitely not the worst I've seen (and once I actually write over that page I won't be able to see any of it anyway).
I'm seriously so happy with this journal, I'd recommend it to anyone. No joke it's the best I've ever used, and especially for the amazing price.
-don't bleed through
-nice book marker and tie thing on the outside to easily find where you left off
- actually stays on the page you're writing on unlike other expensive similar ones where you constantly have to hold the page down
Perhaps the most important thing though is how important these make you look. Walk into a meeting or around the office with these and BOOM ----VIP.
