I use these pencils often for general classwork, taking notes, homework, etc. They work just as well as more expensive brands of mechanical pencils. The leads provided don't break particularly easily and the writing quality is smooth and easy. The eraser is good and doesn't leave smudge marks. Only problem is that the pencils do not come with soft grips, but you can purchase some separately and attach them. Overall, they're good pencils and they serve their purposes well.

Thought these would do the trick. I don't even use a pencil that often, just for certain tasks that require erasing. Even though I think that I use a fairly light amount of pressure while using this pencil, the lead breaks almost every time. It's almost useless. Yea, I know this lead is .5mm, but even when trying the Staples .7mm brand, the lead still broke, though not as often. The BIC .7mm pencils work the best for me.

      You won't save any money with these pencils. With even the slightest pressure while writing the lead breaks. I go through one in about 2 days, as opposed to months with other brands.

            Comments about Staples® Mechanical Pencils .5mm, Yellow Barrel, Dozen:

            The only good thing about this pencil is that is, in fact, a pencil. The lead breaks constantly which is infuriating, and I usually use .5 mm. I will not be buying Staples brand pencils again.

                Comments about Staples® Mechanical Pencils .5mm, Yellow Barrel, Dozen:

                since the eraser end must be pushed to extend the lead, when your are erasing the lead extends! silly engineering. the eraser end is flimsy. the eraser falls out. just not well designed at all. the papermater version is totally better.
