For several years the custodial department of our university has researched the best dry erase marker for the classroom setting that pleases the faculty, the custodians, and hopefully the budget. That said, Quartet brand markers are the best. 1. They erase cleanly through out the day. Faculty can easily erase with out a "ghosting" shadow of the previous writing. 2. Color dry erase markers clean easily once each day on whiteboard painted walls. Other less expensive color dry erase markers had to be erased immediately after use. Otherwise nightly custodial cleaning could not remove the color residue "ghosting" even with whiteboard chemical cleaner. 3. Quartet dry erase markers make a full strike mark and have good ink density. Other markers we tried would not make a full ink mark. It looked like only half the tip was making contact with the board. Or the tip was 'dry' from lying horizontal on the tray, needing to be held vertical for a moment to saturate the tip with ink.
Looks good on my wall. Reason I didn't give it five stars is because it has a little bit of separation at one of the joints and there's some paint bubbling off of it on one area of the board. The board is separated into two parts. I like magnetic area that's also a whiteboard and the other half is a bulletin board so I can hang my jewelry in that space. Overall, good buy.
The colors don't look the same as the outside of the marker. These are also hard to erase from the boards; I have to use those Expo wipes. Otherwise, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the variety of colors, as I use every single one and I love how thin the tip is. Makes writing in tiny areas possible.
