Quartet is worth it for the classroom
I am so tired ofother markers drying out so fast if someoneleaves the cap off for a moment or ruins it by pushing too hard.(First Grade) Quartet has so helped out with my class whiteboard use. It costs a little more but less in the long run because gthey last longer. Compared to the cheaper house brands, they last WAY longer.
I constantly have issues with these markers writing too lightly, even when they are brand new. I try to do what is suggested on your site and other sites to increase the effectiveness of the markers, but nothing seems to work. About one in five of these markers works well out of the box and I don't know what else to do to get the nice, even, dark colors that I once got from the more toxic dry-erase markers that once were prevalent.
Normally I recommend these markers highly, as I've used them in the past in the USA. I like them so much, that I ordered a box shipped to me here in Asia (where I've relocated), but two markers were dry right out of the box and a third has gone dry after only a couple months of use. Meanwhile, I still have one marker that I brought with me from the States over a year ago that is still going strong. I am hoping that I was unlucky and just got a bad box. I still recommend the product, although I'm not sure if I'll buy again considering the cost of international shipping.
These are quality dry erase markers that do not streak, and clean up easily. I use them daily with my Quartet magnetic whiteboard at school! I really appreciate being able to buy my markers in bulk! They are durable and last a long time!
These are the only markers that we use at our university. We provide black, blue, and red for each classroom on all of our campuses. The professors are all pleased with the ease of use and there is no remnant of the wording on the board after it is erased.
I started using these Quartets over Expos about six months ago. For the first few months I loved them. Bold black marks until they ran dry, and the see-through chambers let me know if one would last the day's lecture. Then every few packages, the pens would leave a light grey mark on the board. Then every other package. And now, the last five packages I've bought have all left only a light grey mark on the board. Same board. Same conditioning process as ever. And Expos still leave a bold black mark. The pens are not dry - the chambers are full. The tips are moist. I've tried leaving the pens flat/horizontal. I've tried storing them tip-down. Quartet's quality control is just not there, sadly.
