There are times when a fountain pen is just, well, the right pen to use. Times when the gravity of the situation just requires that extra bit of formality that a fountain pen brings -- a 30-year mortgage or signing a will. The problem with fountain pens, however, is that they usually run out of ink just when you need them, and carrying around an ink supply just isn't convenient. Now, Pilot comes to the rescue with a disposable fountain pen, which gives the writer the best of both worlds. For a disposable, it is of remarkably good quality, has a good grip and writes well. I don't know how long it lasts, because my first one hasn't run out of ink, yet. The price is also good. Quite frankly, either the number of serious episodes in my life have increased lately, or I'm just finding excuses to use it. And I don't even have a will. Yet.

    This is the largest UPS for a standard 15amp outlet. Options to add additional external batteries and optional network card. Full sine wave! Two thumbs ups.

        Great Server UPS, especially /w extra battery pack

        Comments about Pilot Varsity Disposable Fountain Pen:

        Excellent for running a medium sized server, an iMAC quad I7 2.8GHz and 16GB RAM, along with a Pegasus Thunderbolt 6TB RAID storage system configured as a RAID5, with a hot spare. This server hosts the network version of Acclivity's Account Edge Accounting software, on a private VLAN, to a MAC Mini used in the store front for reading barcoded labels, and printing customer receipts on a small laser printer. All transactions are then updated on the server in real time. As the company grows, I like the ability to add an extra battery pack for longer up-times, as we have experienced several 1-2 minute power outages.

        Product performs as specified, but operating manual needs more clarification on rear plug configurations and telecommunication features.

        I've loved these pens for several years. Have always preferred a fountain pen, but they regularly "dry up" if you don't use them regularly. This one solves that problem.

        Comments about Pilot Varsity Disposable Fountain Pen:

        I LOVE these pens! While I occasionally get one that has a sticky regulator (the ink doesnt flow as quickly as it should), I consider that to be expected with a pen that is disposable. Aside from that issue,these pens that are perfect. Great price, you can get them in lots of colors, and they write great.

              I love writing with a fountain pen - it allows a personal flair to your penmanship. I have had several fountain pens over the years. They are expensive and you have to change the cartridges often. They can also be messy. I really like this disposable fountain pen. They write well - no skipping. You do not have to worry about losing an expensive pen. With any fountain pen, you do have to be careful to let the ink dry as you can smear it, but all and all an excellent pen!

                ... a disposable fountain pen. Silly me. I was thinking that this was a calligraphy pen. i was writing and i was wondering why i couldn't make the curly-q's. When i started using it as a regular pen i was very pleased with the fluidity i experienced when using this pen. Great job pilot and great price DOI.
