I have used the Polychromos in Faber-Castell before making the purchase and for under $50 I was convinced it was worth the order. Was shipped ahead of time scheduled which is always great, was in perfect condition and boxed well by dispatch, stored well in an uncompromised tin. Cannot fault anything, so I'm glad that my accidental double ordering was leaving me with a perfect set for backup. I was aware seconds after and I was at fault, but happy to go with it. Saves me paying $3.50 for individual replacements at the art shop.
