Overall its a good pencil. Use it for everyday in classes and stuff. The only downside is that the lead finishes quickly and you have to click often. Other than that I like the way it writes very smoothly, but if you write to hard breaks easily. Bought a box of 12 for [$] at a staples sale so it was definitely worth it.

The lead advance functioning of this pencil is superior for a bargain pencil. The eraser also works better than most other bargain pencil erasers do. It feels horrible in the hand though, like the cheapest thing you have ever held in your life.

All in all, worth the price and a good choice for the value-oriented individual.

thin lead breaks easily

By SB

from Northridge

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Staples® Postscript™ Mechanical Pencils, .5mm, Gray Barrel:

it works; but the lead breaks so easily. (If you only make 1/16th of an inch of lead show, you have to advance it so often; but if you make 1/8th of an inch of lead show, it breaks off.) I'm going to try their pencils with .7 size lead and see if that breaks a little less often.

  • Sticky

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Figure Work

    Comments about Staples® Postscript™ Mechanical Pencils, .5mm, Gray Barrel:

    Barrell is just the perfect width. It has the feel of a more expensive pencil, but the cost of an inexpensive one. It easily adapts to generic lead & generic erasers. I have them throughout my offices & my home, as well as my purse. The image it creates is always a clear & concise one.

      Hope replaceable erasers can be had at store. Also not having cover on eraser end can be troublesome, easy to damage eraser end.

      reasonable pencil for the price

      By Trace

      from Kentucky

      About Me Midrange Shopper

      Pros

      • inexpensive
      • Writes well

      Cons

      • Eraser Easily Lost

      Best Uses

        Comments about Staples® Postscript™ Mechanical Pencils, .5mm, Gray Barrel:

        The feel and texture of the pencil is good, it writes well and is not "waxy" feeling. The lead is smooth and has a good color. Overall I liked these pencils, however I've had issues with the erasers coming out and then losing the stored extra lead sticks. I'd like to see the erasers designed to stay in better, and also have a little more life or to have refills. They do not last as long as the replacement leads will, and I dislike throwing things away that could still be used. That said, I've bought this brand 3 times..
