Won't Buy Again
April 5, 2019
I'm not sure that I will buy this product again. I have been very happy so far with AmazonBasics products, in fact I seek them out, as I have found them to be of good value so far. The quality of this paper, however, disappoints. The weight of the paper seems fine, but the colour of the paper is noticeably off-white, especially when compared to a four-year-old page of HP Print and Copy paper with the same brightness specification.
The bigger problem, however, was the condition of the paper on receipt. Again, I have always found Amazon to be extraordinarily good at packing. My paper arrived loose in a larger box, with two other smaller items that I had purchased. The paper wrapping around the ream is thin, and provides little protection to the paper inside. Both ends of the paper wrapping had partially burst, and the corners of the ream were damaged. This means that most of the 500 sheets in this ream will be dented or rippled, and would not be suitable for business use.
I'm sure Amazon would refund the price if I returned the product, but I'll find some use for this paper, and will visit my local Staples to buy a ream for business use.
