    I'm giving this a 4 star because i i'm not a professional, but i do know that it works well. I don't know what a 5 star rating is, but i seldom give them to items that i'm not a professional in. The product does what it needs to. I'm a student that works in a dark room with this sheets, and they work however i need them to. however I'm not great with processing other than digital, so the techniques in photo development is still catching on in my abilities. I recommend this product if you have plenty of photos to work with or plenty of ideas. I think Ilford products do rate high in my acquaintance with this company.

    I bought this type of paper for a photography class I am taking at school. The print comes out pretty nicely, but I like RC/pearl paper better than this. The fiber paper is pretty flimsy, so be careful when you're developing your prints- it will rip extremely easily when wet.

                      While I make my final display prints on Fiber paper, this paper is what I use for contact and work prints. I will also use it for prints that I give away. The paper is durable, consistent and delivers very pleasing results. Some feel that it is too glossy, but the surface doesn't bother me.

                        I prefer Fiber over RC but RC definitely saves time. I'm using this for contact sheets or testing strips.

                                      I'm a Photo I student and was running low on paper for my final two projects when I ordered this. I had started out my semester with the pearl flavor of this paper and I'm now sorry that I didn't use the glossy all semester. The blacks are amazing and consistent and the glossy finish adds so much to my nature photography. Next semester it will be all glossy all the time.

                                          This paper is great for my photo class. It is glossy and beautiful to print on! Make sure you want a glossy (very very shiny!) look if you buy this! I have no complaints

                                                  I bought this type of paper for a photography class I am taking at school. The print comes out pretty nicely, but I like RC/pearl paper better than this. The fiber paper is pretty flimsy, so be careful when you're developing your prints- it will rip extremely easily when wet.
