The diary is alright. I never received a pen. I only got the outside plastic exterior of the pen, no ink or refill in it. And it's too small for the pen holder. It is cheap of them to not give a pen! And the paper from backside was torn. And a couple of post its were dirty too. Not very happy with the purchase.
I bought this to gift my brother on his birthday cum first day at office. The paper quality looks good, the stickey notes had its outer cover intact. And the pen also had it's nib cover. The only flaw was that the outer cover had stains and yes, the cost is more than what we can get it for in a retail shop.
As per the prior reviews which i had gone through this product seems to be poor but in real when i got it fot a try as it seems very useable product. I found out that it is pretty awesome though build quality is not that good but its not that worse which it seems to be.
This is an absolute saviour of a planner at a great price. The sticky notes eventually came off and I had to fix that somehow but the pad and the papers, the sheets for bookmarking and the pen holder came in handy.
