I have 5 of the new ones. I like them now that I'm more used to them, they ink up so much better and you can emboss with them if you work quickly. With solid stamps I get bubbles of ink on the stamp if I tap too hard or more than once so I'm still learning there. The pads are also stickier so a couple of my smaller clear mount stamps stuck to them and came right off the block. I haven't tried sponging with them yet.
And yes, avoid the black, I use either black Stazon or Colorbox Chalk Ink in Blackbird.
