i'm going to university this coming september and have been accumulating some of the things that i want to take with me in advance so that i don't have to get it all at once.
when i saw this product, i thought 'omg; i can finally stop losing my favourite pens!' iv'e used this for some of my more expensive pens that i don't want to bung in the pen-pot along with all the others, which this is perfect for. it's stronger than it looks in the picture and i able to hold heavy fountain pens along with slim pencils.
the magnets on the sides are just powerful enough to hold a bout-load of paper clips and strips of staples, though not too strong that you'll have trouble detatching them when you want them.
i also like the fact that you can put the unit on its side and pull the pens out of the top, which would be a good way to ensure that you place the pens nib-diwn to prevent them from not working when you go to use them.
the packaging that it arrived in was also well-made with thick cardboard; it looked like it was ready to hang on a rail in a shop and sell itself, a quiality that seems to be going out of fashion with online sellers with most preferring to just bung the product in a bag and send it. the actual box that it arrived in ensured that the product didn't break in transit, which is always nice.
to put the cherry on top of the whole lot, it arrived ahead of shedule; nothing to complain about in the slightest; a well-made product and exceptional customer service.
