I purchased this to help me roll a ton of long-saved coins. I was very, very careful about filling it slowly (just a few coins at a time). The sorting mechanism isn't terribly accurate: dimes would fall into the penny tube, pennies into the nickles, nickles into the quarters, so I'd have to painstakingly remove them. There was also no sort of marking system on the tubes to tell me if enough coins had stacked to go into a paper roll, so I ended up counting each one anyway. I finally got around this by making a mark with a Sharpie on each tube to indicate the full level. The device is not well balanced, so when you open the swing arm that holds the coin rolls, the whole thing wants to tip over. And, the swing arm doesn't successfully lock into place, so it will randomly fly open while coins are dropping through the shoots, making a mess.
Lastly, after maybe a half hour of total use, the thing just died.
While it was working, it took marginally less time to use than it would have to just manually count the coins myself. All I'm able to do with it now is use the little plastic tubes to keep my stacks from falling over. Total waste of money, do not purchase!

Well, the product is a bit fragile, which is to be expected. What surprised me however was that it got jammed after only five minutes of usage. When it gets jammed, the coins fall inside of the machine and they're a pain to get out. It got jammed several times after that, but I got used to getting it unjammed quickly. It works as long as you watch it very carefully, but it has a rather large error chance when sorting the coins, as my pennies have about 10% dimes in them. I realize that this is a bargain choice, but I suggest just paying ten dollars more and getting something that works like it's supposed to.
How accurate was the sizing? very accurate.

My wife had the need for a coin sorter and I found the Emerson Coin Sorter after a google search. Having bought from Overstock.com before, I know they would deliver what they advertise. The Emerson Coin Sorter was as advertised. It sorts coins well. However, the Coin Sorter uses a lot of power, draining the batteries, requiring a stash of batteries since the Coin Sorter burns them out quickly. The Coin Sorter would be a much better product if it had an option to plug into the wall or some kind of a wall power adapter. However, as it is, it is an average product. If you don't have a lot of coins to sort, it should meet your needs.
The product arrived quickly. The only thing I did not realize is that the sorter does not take as much change as it requires to fill up a coin sleeve. You have to add to the coin sleeve in order to get the full amount.
