I have or had a lot of coins lying around in a few different bins, mostly pennies, nickels and dimes. We used most of the quarters. I think for what you are paying for it does a good job. It sorts pretty well and I rarely had the wrong coin in the wrong spot, but it does happen. I got a few pennies in with the dimes because they were foreign or old and lots of wear. I did get a few into the quarter bin when I would turn the handle backwards to clear a small jam, if you go back too far you back feed coins. Only happen once, then I didn't turn it back that far. Only had two coins get stuck inside hopper. I saw one reviewer said he had to take it apart to get them out. I just turned the unit up a bit until the coin slid into the feed area and picked it up. It was a token from some local game place. I am using it as a sorter, not a roller and I see a lot the one star reviews are because it does not count well. The tube has to be full right to the top to get the right count. I don't think most banks take coins in rolls anyway anymore and if they do they still break them open and put them in their own counter. So I will not be using this to roll coins but give me a pretty good count but mostly to sort. So I'm not worried if I'm off by one coin here or there. I did get a few jams in the feed drop/ramp area, only on pennies though. For the most part they would clear themselves as more coins dropped down, but if not I used a butter knife to move them around and they would drop free. I've only used it a few times so far so my review could change but I'm very happy with it now. I think I'll upload a short video to show its operation, it's pretty neat. If you truly want or need a accurate counter then maybe you should buy a higher dollar counter.
