    Multigrade FB Classic Matt Variable Contrast Paper (5 x 7", 100 Sheets) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so great I made a lot of prints, all of which looked great while wet and in the wash. Once they dried, they became flat and lost the deep black and bright white. During the same darkroom session, I used Ilford's fiber 11x14 glossy, and got sensational results with a full range of tones. Same printer (me), same darkroom conditions and expertise. The only difference was the paper. Next time, I'll wait until the glossy 5x7 is available. It's not awful, but there are better results to be had with glossy. I'd never purchase this kind again, even if it were the only one available. I'd cut down larger sizes of glossy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from classic paper This is just a small size of what is really a unique and awesome paper. It needs to be printed a bit differently than glossy fiber papers, and very differently than RC papers. It's a bit tougher to work with in a small size, but it makes great postcards! I print my 4x6's on this paper, and wouldn't trade for anything currently available.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this paper! Sorry to the reviewer below who clearly didn't know what he was doing but after 20 years in the craft this is the only paper I use. No, it is not the same as glossy. You do need to print it differently but the results are just lovely.
