Prisma was probably the best quality and had excellent contrast between the two blues and between the two greens. They marked easily with very little pressure and the range of colors was great. However, for my purposes, I really needed a pink. Prisma had peach or flesh-tone instead that is not pink enough for my needs. I didn’t choose Prisma for that one reason alone. If my purpose was different, it may have been my first choice.
The one I chose was Cra-z-art. There was very good contrast between the two blues and between the two greens, plus it had a very pretty shade of pink. It was the only set that didn’t contain white. Instead, there are two reds with good contrast between them as well. They also marked easily with very little pressure.
Prang was very similar to the Cra-z-art and was my second choice. The reason it was not number one was because the pink was not as bold as the Cra-z-art and it contained white.
Sargent had the best pink. However, it was the hardest of the four and needed more pressure to mark. Also, there was not much contrast between the two blues and between the two greens.
Color names are printed in gold in three languages on each pencil. However, color names and tip colors are misleading, so swatch them to see what you are working with.
Gradients of each color can be achieved with different pressure and/or hatching techniques.
(Scholastic quality so I will compare with Crayola) Color lays down much more evenly than Crayola. Much less pressure is needed to lay down intense color. Points stay sharp through coloring unlike Crayola which requires sharpening every third second. Much less wax bloom than Crayola. I bought this set of 50 for under $8 so even the price was better than Crayola.
I will update with the results of blending and layering. Happy coloring!!!
Update: I attempted to layer basic primary colors to make new secondary colors. Then I used layers to add depth to a sphere. Compared to Crayola these Prang pencils transition more smoothly and mix more evenly.
So it is an excellent value as long as you can add a red with punch from elsewhere.
BTW: when the company states with pride that the pencils have a wood case, I believe they are meaning that the core is surrounded by tree wood product, as opposed to cores which are surrounded by glue and dust paste that hardens into what looks like wood. It does not mean to indicate that the pencils will come inside a wooden box case. I read many reviews with complaints about pencils arriving in cardboard box.
UPDATE - May 20, 2020. I have purchased both the 50pc set and the 72pc set, along with a second box of 24. The 50 color box has labeled different colors. The 72pc set has unlabeled random colors. See attached photos for the color swatches I did. The box of 24 performed differently to the first box. The red was brighter, but many of the colors were less bright than the first box. So I guess the continuity of colored waxy lead is as random as the color of paint color on the pencils. A sample is the Moonlight pencils, one was a vibrant deep blue, and the other was a pale lavender color.
The box of 72 unlabeled random colors, was a mess. The greens and the violet were the closest to boxes of 24 & 50 colors. The rest were scratchy faded versions of the 24 & 50. Again the paint color on the wood is not always a guide to what's in the waxy lead.
I had too much coffee yesterday, so I tried to figure out which colors were in the box of 72.
Silver-1, gold-1, white-1, red-1, red orange-1, pink-1, dark rose-5, salmon-4, natural-1, orange-1, pumpkin-1, yellow orange-1, lemon yellow-3, yellow -2, golden yellow-1, harvest yellow-2, sage green-1, green-2, leaf green-2, light green-3, yellow green-1, moss green-1, pine green-1, aqua green-3, sky blue-6, ocean blue-1, dark blue-1, blue-1, moonlight-2, violet-5, purple-5, berry red-2, rosewood-1, sienna-3, brown-2, warm grey-2, sepia-1. Total of 72
Using the box of 72 and 3 colors from a box of 24; I have divided them in into 5 sets of 11 colors each that have a version of red, pink, yellow, orange, 2 kinds of blues, 2 kinds of greens, violet, a type of brown and a bonus color. The remaining 20 pencils could not be worked into another set and are surplus currently. The 5 sets will be cleaned and matched with coloring books, and given to people in need of entertainment. In this time of "shelter in place", many people are in need of entertainment! ☺

We had some delivery issues but after contacting the seller they sorted these issues out quickly and to my satisfaction.
As for the pencils, my wife loves them. She is finding colouring to be an ideal stress reliever from her hectic job and having tried many makes of pencils we keep coming back to Prang.
These pencils came from America and are no different from the other ones advertised for much more money, do not be pt off, you get just what you expect, top quality pencils for a very good price from very nice sellers who care abut making sure the customer is happy.
Would definitely buy from again!!
