Bic Biro- Bic is best.

Advantages: A good pen at a reasonable price, long lasting.
As a student using biro's everyday I am always in need of a good pen that wont run out, or break the bank. And, lending out your much needed pens to friends who have 'forgotten' to bring one of their own, usually results in the pens going missing. I tend to replace pens every month or so, and I have probably tried over 10 brands of different pens, including Supermarket basic ranges, to the more expensive pens.
Bic is a well known company and from previous uses, I must say that have to be one of best pens I have ever used. Not only do they last a lot longer than your average biro, but the ink is of high quality, I have never once experienced blotchy writing or smudges on the paper whilst using Bic pens.
The one I most commonly purchase are the Bic medium in Black, which you can usually buy for around £1-£1.80 for a packet of four. Yes, for working in an ofice (Where pens goes missing every hour, never to be seen again), it may be a bit pricey, depending on the number of employees, but for pens around the home, taking to school or college they are definitely worth the money.
The pens rarely leak, even when the lids go missing (which most of the time they do) and the tip of the pen is very tightly in, meaning the biro stick inside does not come flying out if for example, you are a pen chewer. If you were to use the same pen for say, 2 hours every day, I would say you would get at least a months use out of it, which, dividing the price by the number of pens in the packet and the amount of time it would last for, works out at, at most 11p a week, not even 2p a day.
Overall, I'd recommend Bic as a trustworthy reliable company producing good quality pens at a reasonable price. If you are still searching for the super pen which you won't be using to write letters to the queen with, stick with Bic.
Summary: Would recommend this pen and company as reliable and trustworthy.
