10 reviews for Amazon Basics Legal/Wide Ruled 8.5 x 11.75-Inch Lined Writing Note Pads – 12-Pack (50-sheet Pads), White

  1. Marko Jennings

    Based on all the complaints about thin paper and even thinner cardboard backing, I was somewhat reluctant to purchase these notepads. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Either Amazon has improved the quality or other reviewers have way too high expectations.Based on complaints I saw in other reviews, I tested them with 0.5 mechanical pencils and ballpoint pens and never tore a hole in the paper. Using a good quality eraser was not a problem either. I don’t use ones that come on pencils, so I am not sure what those would do. Paper is thinner than average, but not too thin. Cardboard backing is perfectly fine, no sagging or bending of any kind. Sheets tear off the pad just fine.

    AMAZON BASICS LEGAL PADSWe use these legal pads daily for various reasons. They come in so handy and here is why…..*Perforated top for easy rip free removal*12 pack*Two colors available — yellow or white*Measure 8 1/2″ x 11″*Strong cardboard backing for firmness*Wide ruleThese are inexpensive legal pads. They look good, tear off clean, and are about as low in cost as they come. My husband prefers heavier paper, but for me these work fine. Other legal pads have 100 pages per pad; these are only 50 pages.We use these in my husband’s home office, for grocery lists, letters, memos, etc.If you enjoy drawing, are in the need of legal pads for various office/school/college endeavors, or have little artists at home, these will fit all of your needs.

    This is not the first AmazonBasics entry in office supplies with which I’ve experimented. I continue to be pleased with the value of this line.Some reviewers would have preferred a thicker grade of paper and a tighter adhesive connection with the cardboard backing. I haven’t found this to be a problem. In fact, I didn’t notice the detail until I read about it in other reviews.For my purposes—note taking, followed by scanning of docs I want to keep and disposal of the legal-pad original—this preference is not an issue. The fact that you these legal pads come in just south of one dollar each is appealing to me.I’ll order this product again when my current supply is depleted.

    It’s what I expected to be. The paper is comfortable despite the other reviews I read and is exactly the description. I was looking something to write ideas and then save it and my doubts were high at the moment of buying these notepads. The quality of the notepads is excellent.Ok, what I read is if I write with 0.5 or 0.7 mechanical pencils, I could destroy my paper, so I tested and all good. Not a single break/hole. Is the paper thin? Yes is more than other products. The other thing I had my doubts was about the cardboard but it turns out to be exactly (again) the description said and you can tear the sheet off the pad without any negative consequence.

    I was very skeptical about how they packaged it… (see picture) so I had to make sure I got correct number of note pads.I read some reviews talking about how thin the paper is, and let me tell you that it is thin. I have ordered this size as well as regular letter size amazon basic pads, and they are both thin.If you are looking for a great quality one, then please go ahead and spend $10/pad.However I am looking for affordable pads to write quick memo or for my kids to draw endlessly. So this is perfect. Very similar quality as what you would get from major stationary companies but with amazon service and prime shipping :)!Very happy with the price and quantity I get.

    These are literally some of the only things I have keeping me organized right now. I have list after list and these are where I keep them. I used to take notes on anything and everything, and I find that when I used my phone it wasn’t sinking in as much…. Hence buying these. I like that they’re not yellow so I can doodle on them, and I use them to keep track of important bills and phone calls and other stuff. If you’re forgetful and disorganized like I can be, it’s really nice to go back to your notes. Plus if you need customer service it’s great knowing who you previously dealt with. Cannot state how much I value these.

    I literally use a note pad every day. For me it is the way I keep my day organized, with the things I have to do and notes that come up throughout the day. It made sense that I would buy some in bulk since I use so many. These pads by Amazon Essentials are perfect. I kept the box they came in so I could make sure my pads were organized as always out of the way.They are sturdy (even though I attach mine to a clipboard) and easy to write on. Just what I need to make sure I’m organized. The price also makes them something that is appealing, and saves you a trip to the store. Great investment. Great product. Glad to have them right at my fingertips.

    These “Jr Legal” pads are a great value – high quality for a low price! Several reviews said the paper on these pads was too thin &/or did not tear off well. I found the opposite! I did a side-by-side comparison with the brand I usually buy – Member’s Mark from Sam’s Club – with which I have been pleased for many years. As you can see from my photos, the Amazon Basics paper had considerable less bleed-through, meaning it is plenty thick. I also found it to tear off perfectly. The Amazon Basics pads are very slightly longer, about 1/8″. The only reason I could imagine that being a problem for anyone is if they had a folio or craft project designed to for the smaller pads perfectly.

    I bought these pads to use as scratch pads at my desk at work. I sometimes use medium point ball point pens and more usually .5 mechanical pencils.The paper stock is fairly thin, but I haven’t had any issues with the paper ripping. I have erased using both a pencil top eraser and a block eraser with no ripping. While I haven’t had any bleed through, I’m sure if you used a marker or a felt tip pen you probably would.The perforations at the top have worked fine and so far I haven’t had any pages rip away from the perforation.For my purposes, these are fine and at a reasonable cost.

    Pages thick enough that pens don’t bleed thru onto next page. They are just the right size for me keep by my side to take notes from things I read online. And to make my shopping list for the week and a “to do” list for myself each day. And for driving directions that I can even hold up and read while driving if I have to. There are a lot uses for a page this size. And, I am a writer. So, even if I type something into my Ipad first. Just writing it on a page allows me to think it through in a right brain and full brain way. I have purchased these at least a half dozen times now. They are packaged well, never damaged. A good product at a fair price. My only criticism is I wish the page tore off cleanly. And I would also like recycled paper options this size. Bright white is great. But off white is okay. Very light grey or a very very light blue hue would be okay.
