I never bothered much ink reviews, simply because reviewing a ink is much more difficult than rewiewing a pen. This is because ink behaves differently according to the pen and paper that are used. I have even noticed that the ink saturation varies a lot in different pens, making the ink look quite different.
For instance, I know some parker pens, like the vector, have the tendency to run very wide, making the ink look brighter than it really is.
I have been pleasantly surprised by this ink, which seems to be quite a competitor for better known inks, such as the pelikan ink or even quink. The water resistance test results was somewhat of a surprise, the ink resisted quite well to water drops, and it has almost no feathering on a medium nib.
In this regards, think it surpasses the ink made by pelikan which I often use and which dissapointed me on some ocassions. Also, the ink made by koh-i-noor has responded well when used on several pens I have(c/f, imperial, 51, 45, and others), and all wrote well when filled with this ink. The only drawback that I can see is that the black version is not very saturated, but that`s not an issue for me. It`s a good ink for the money.
