        I am going to school for photography and this photo paper is perfect for doing assignments. It has great tonal ranges and is exactly what I needed. If I were to do portfolio I might get the RC portfolio paper for a higher quality but for school assignments this is great. Ive been using Ilford XP2 film on this paper and it hasn't given me any trouble. Thoroughly satisfied.

            I am in a basic black and white photography class and the quality of the prints that are produced by this paper is very high. I've used other papers that don't produce the same crisp lines. I would totally use it again

                    I am a Photography and Imaging major at NYU Tisch and blow through photo paper in the darkroom (I only do Black and White Analog). If you like glossy, this product is great because it really shows the contrast without losing too much detail. The glossy can occasionally take a way from a photo in improper lighting, but it really depends on your taste. It's not cheap, but what high quality photo paper is cheap? Definitely worth it!

                            As RC papers go I find this gives me the results I am looking for. Was using it with Multigrade paper developer but started using Dektol and like it even better.

                                First time I used ILFORD, and the outcome compared to Kodak paper was Great, I also found the contrast so much better.
                                I highly reccomend ILFORD Photographic paper.

                                    It seemed a little lighter weight compared to the Oriental brand, but it's still good quality.

                                        I find this paper to be consistant and just what I need when making proof sheets of my often very manipulated film works. I also stress the consistency of the paper and recomend it as the go to paper for all my photo students.

                                          I'm a first time photo student at my local college, this paper has worked great so far, considering how many people in the class actually have this same paper, it's good stuff.. Nice dark blacks, and greys.. Would recommend this to other students.
