The price for this 12-pack is not yet posted at Amazon, but I anticipate that the pack will be reasonably economical. The variety of colors can be helpful in identifying the subject matter contained in each. I tried tearing a sheet out along its perforation, and it came out cleanly--I teared it out a bit carefully. The sheets are hole-punched for a standard 3-ring binder. So a student, for example, can tear them out and store them in a binder. I tested the paper with mechanical 0.7 pencil, Pilot G2 gel pens, artist Pitt pens and a medium-fine fountain pen. Surprisingly, there was practically no leak-through with any of those writing instruments, even with the Pitt pen in a brush point.

So why only 3 stars?
(1) The paper is really thin, almost tissue- paper thin. Everything I wrote with noticeably dented the sheet underneath the one I was writing on. I could even see some slight dents in the next sheet down. Turn the sheet I wrote on over to work on its backside, and the surface is markedly dented.
(2) I would be hesitant to store these sheets in a 3-ring binder for fear that they would too easily tear out.
(3) A month or so ago, I bought a package of cheap notebook paper for taking notes on that I will like throw away, and the sheets of this notebook paper seem to be about twice the thickness as the Mead paper.
(4) The covers are also thin and floppy, including if you fold the front cover around to the back of the back cover. You still need a hard, flat surface to write on.

Bottom line: If you don't mind cheap, thin paper and do not plan on saving what is written on it for a number of years, I say go for it. On the other hand, if you refer thicker paper and want to preserve your notes, I would look for a better quality paper. You'll pay a bit more, but you'll likely be happier.

The cost of these is definitely less as a group of 12 than it would be individually at a big box store. And for my girls who love to have notebooks for every subject imaginable to play 'school' at home, they loved shaving the whole set to pick and choose from. 6 colors, two of each.

If you're a stationary geek like I am you're fussy about notebooks - and you probably expect a certain level of quality from Mead.
I go back ages with them and am still working through a stash of hard and soft-cover drawing pads I accumulated over the years.

Back in August I grabbed a bunch of TopFlight clones of these notebooks at the supermarket on sale for thirty cents a pop and I'm surprised to see they clearly beat these Meads where it counts most:

Both notebooks contain 70 sheets of three hole, tear out sheets (and both, fortunately, are not too easy to tear out).
The cover and rear cardboard of both brands are comparable in color and weight - although the Mead has a back coating similar to hard clipboards that may or may not resist liquid contact better.

The pages themselves appear similar in weight and overall dimension. Both books are standard 10 1/2 x 7 1/2. The TopFlights incorrectly say 8 inches on the cover for width.

But the TopFlights have 33 lines versus 31 lines for the Meads.
I suppose if you're a fan of large headers this is a plus, but I'm a list-maker so I'll take more lines hands down.

The page area to the right of the red border is about 1/4" wider in the TopFlights than the Meads.

But most decisive for me, the red vertical border and blue horizontal lines are considerable darker and sharper in the Topflight than in the Meads.

They're not ridiculously dark and distracting, as in some cheap brands, but the Meads are just too pale for my taste.

What you get here is 12 of Mead's small spiral notebooks. There are 6 colors and each has 70 pages. They come bundled together (see photo) for easy storage.

This is okay weight paper. One thing I don't like about it is that the lines are faint, but perhaps only to me. It's medium or 'college' ruled, which means that the lines are 9'32nds apart.

These are really useful for students that don't want to tote a lot of large notebooks around. At our schools students have to have a 2 or 3-inch notebook per subject. This can add up to a lot of weight. Our kids carry these types of smaller notebooks with them. Then when they fill them up they pull the pages out and put them in the larger notebooks.

To that end these pages are perforated and have holes.

I love buying things in bulk. There's no price given yet. If it's good they'll have my business in the future.

I've been purchasing these exact Mead single subject, college ruled notebooks in 6-packs (instead of 12-packs) the past couple years specifically at the request of my teen son. Out of all the choices out there, these are his favorite spirals for high school. He likes a separate spiral notebook for each class. This year, he went from 5 to 6 substantive classes, so a 12-pack is the perfect amount for the entire school year, and since there are six colors he can use a different color for each class. Mead always has the best color selection (this pack has two each of blue, black, purple, orange, red and green) because the colors are gender neutral and good for boys or girls. The quality is excellent, these are 3-hole punched, and the sheets are perforated to easily tear sheets out if needed (but otherwise they stay nicely in tact). The notebooks are lightweight and add no unnecessary bulk to my teen's backpack. These are the perfect choice for a student who needs or prefers single subject notebooks for each class rather than multi-subject spirals and are always my teen's pick for high school. Highly recommend.
