Rated 2 out of 5�by Staci Works, but not pretty
As other reviewers noted, the dispenser arrives looking used--like it was the shelf version that had a lot of wear and tear. I think the clear plastic box it ships in rubs on the (supposed to be) shiny white body and makes it dull and scratched. Mine had a strange oily feel to it. The bottom looks like it was attached sloppily. My tape spool fit with no problems; it functions fine but the look doesn't live up to the photo.

I am usually an avid reader of reviews but I failed to do so on this product since it was only $10, BIG MISTAKE! But when I got it, it was scratched, dirty and the center thing that holds the tape didn't even fit. Called and got a replacement, same issues except the center piece actually worked. Decided to keep it because didn't want to hassle with a $10 product. But if you decide to get a white dispenser, beware that it WILL look used when you get it and may not even work. I can't believe they are even still selling this after so many terrible reviews!

Cute, but the dispenser looks used.
It arrived with multiple scratches keyword Multiple. Maybe another returned and restock it on the shelve.

Rated 3 out of 5�by jmichaelson Adorable, but Defective
I ordered this item because I love the clean lines, and it matches my office well. I was hoping previous reviewers just had a fluke experience. Sadly, when I received it, it looked the same as others had described- cracked, rough edges, and it was leaking sand/ dust out of the cracks.
I returned it and requested a new one, and received it the next day. Very smooth process to return it. But... the replacement had the exact same issue. When I told customer service this, and that I wanted to exchange it for a different brand, they told me to keep this one, they gave me a credit for it, and put in an order the different brand I asked for.
For some reason, the order got cancelled without my knowledge. So I didn't have a tape dispenser, so I ended up using this item, but I had to super glue the seems closed so it wouldn't leak the dust/sand stuff all over my desk. I also had to adjust the metal "teeth" to a different angle in order to cut the tape properly. It works just fine now.
So if you really like the design, and have a little time to play around with it, you can make it work.
