    It was recommended by a teacher for a photo class my girlfriend was taking at college, and I was able to come to B&H to purchase it, because the teacher recommended this store, even though I had to travel in from Long Island. When I saw the art she created using this photo paper, I knew it was a good product that only enhanced the art she created.
    It is a strong quality paper that can handle the rigors of repeated use as well as being subjected to mixed media after it has been used for its initial photographic purpose.
    I'd buy it again.

    I took a B&W photo class this semester and used a TON of this paper. It was worth the price and the results I got were wonderful. The good: Excellent contrast, worth the price, dries fast clean and doesn't curl too badlyThe bad: don't let it get hot (like in a car) It will buckle and be a nightmare to position correctly in an easel!

                                    Comments about Ilford Multigrade IV RC Deluxe MGD.44M Black & White Variable Contrast Paper (8 x 10", Pearl, 25 Sheets):

                                    It was recommended by a teacher for a photo class my girlfriend was taking at college, and I was able to come to B&H to purchase it, because the teacher recommended this store, even though I had to travel in from Long Island. When I saw the art she created using this photo paper, I knew it was a good product that only enhanced the art she created.
                                    It is a strong quality paper that can handle the rigors of repeated use as well as being subjected to mixed media after it has been used for its initial photographic purpose.
                                    I'd buy it again.

                                    The product is used in the dark room to develop a picture from a negative.

                                    The paper does a great job printing quality prints.

                                    I don't see any issues with the product that I purchased.
