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.

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

      I go to write with the Staples brand mechanical pencil and the lead pushes back up into the barrel. I cannot write with it at all. I urge you not to waste your money on this really poor quality product. Not worth 10 cents!

      Terrible

      By arts 101

      from Wyoming

      Verified Buyer

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

      these pencils in no way compared to the Papermate. When I went to the store the Papermate was sold out and an associate told me that they were no longer available and helped me order these online. Poor quality. Had to throw out. I would actually not give it any stars but one was the lowest number that I could check.

          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.
