I own these and the Landscape Set from Sennelier. Comparing the two, I can say they are both very good, very different and complement each other nicely. As other reviewers noted, these are harder pastels, maybe medium hardness. The Sennelier are very soft in comparison. I found the Sakura/Cray-Pas to have great, vivid colors. The colors from Sennelier were great as well and are more suited for blending because they are so soft. The Sakura/Cray-Pas was definitely harder to blend, even using one of those tools with a little blending sponge at the end. They are better for underlying detail. The Sennelier were especially good for heavily laid accent colors on top of some Sakura/Cray-Pas. The two sets also complement each other in terms of shape, this one has square sections and the Sennelier are round. The shape of the Sakura/Cray-Pas was actually one of the qualities I was looking for. I wanted the possibility to drag one of the rectangular pastel corners over the paper, which up to now I could hardly do with the rounded Sennelier.
I also wanted to mention the addition of, interestingly, silver and gold to the pastels of the set. I have not tried them yet though.
