From the point of view of a mom and teacher. These pencils offer great quality and it would help out students a lot to own these.

Eraser:
Most pencils out there that are under a dollar or so have erasers that tear or discolor the paper. This one erases well although leaves a bit of a mark due to the dark writing (and also the reason for my 4 out of 5).
Material:
This is actually a wooden pencil and some pencils out there seem to have a mixture of plastic or rubber of some sort.
Writing:
This pencil writes beautifully. Upon writing straight, the darkness of the writing is beautiful. Upon pressuring straight down the pencil holds and doesn't crack the tip that much nor does it break the tip off (as cheaper pencils). It would be a perfect pencil to use on a scantron. Upon writing at an angle, the darkness is a bit less but still great and visible. Upon using the pencil for strokes from bottom up (as a primary child may do), the pencil also holds and doesn't crack or break.

Overall a great buy and worth the extra expense. I posted pictures of writing and erasing also :D

For many years now as a student I have been using the Dixon Oriole and it was my favorite pencil of all time. But however as the years past i noticed that Dixon has really down graded the eraser of the pencil. From being nice, soft and easy to erase, the new Dixon pencil is very when erasing and is very unpleasant to use. At some points i noticed that the eraser even left a mark on the paper.

I really do not recommend this pencil for people unless if another eraser is present

The pencils were pretty good. However the erasers were a bit too stiff and ripped through my exam papers.
I luckily brought a soft eraser with me. These proved good for household use. But do not use for paper exams like SAT.

I chose this rating on the basis of value. I'm sorely disappointed at how difficult it is to find a decent pencil for a reasonable cost. If grown-ups use pencils as much as kids do, they would certainly make better pencils. These pencils are not the greatest quality, but for the price they're the best deal I know of. They're "ok."

Good quality pencils, pre-sharpened for convenience. Many an exam day I've grabbed a couple of these pencils right out of the box, knowing they'd be ready for action and thus alleviating unnecessary test-day anxiety. The erasers work as well as any pink pencil-end erasers I've encountered, and the pencils last longer than many.

Who is Autistic has to have a certain brand and make of pencils - unfortunately, this is the brand that he has to have - the price for the pencils was excellent for $1.54. However, paying $9.00 shipping really sucked!

As a homeschool parent of 3 we go through pencils like crazy. These never break (in half from pressure), the sharpened tips are sturdy and rarely break from pressure either. Erasers erase well without a lot of smearing and ripping. Just a great pencil and even better they are pre sharpened which is very convenient!
