I purchased this sharpener for classroom use because it was quiet and touted to be extremely efficient in the classroom. One month after beginning use, the sharpener stopped sharpening on one side. I returned the sharpener to the company and was sent another in the mail. The second sharpener never did sharpen on both sides. I tried every pencil in the drawer, some old, some new, various brands, with the same outcome: 1/16th sharpening on one side and full sharpening on the other. I contacted customer service via e-mail and was told the problem was the PENCILS. (Their studies show that many pencils are inferior and dry unevenly, thereby making it impossible to sharpen them.) I then tried other types, brands, etc. No improvement. I finally tried colored pencils, and notified the company that the sharpener would only sharpen colored pencils. They notified me that I had invalidated my warranty by sharpening colored pencils and they were off the hook.

Shortly after I notified the company a second time, I received a very nice e-mail from a company problem solver who settled the problem by sending a Super Pro 6 model. It has two sharpening blades and works beautifully. I suggest you pass on the Quiet Sharp 6 and purchase the Super Pro 6 model to begin with. The dual sharpener solved all problems inherent in the Quiet 6.

Just replaced a schoolpro sharpener with this new Bostitch item. Have always been a fan of their staplers, so decided to give this a try. The first thing that really stood out was how quiet it was compared to the schoolpro model. I can actually let the kids sharpen during a lesson without disturbing the class. The sharpening speed is also far superior. I still have the shcoolpro in the classroom, but the kids all prefer the Bostitch due to how fast it is. Another great feature is the magnetic safety switch which gives me added peace of mind when letting the kids sharpen their own pencils.

I had such high hopes for this sharpener. It had the makings of a dream machine: pencil size selector, great warranty on the motor, megahuge shavings receptacle. I was sure I was in love when I bought it. I plugged it into the wall of my 3rd grade classroom and treated it with the greatest of care. No 8-year-old hands were allowed to touch it, and I was careful not to sharpen more than about 25 pencils at a time. At first it was nirvana--beautifully sharpened pencils with no hesitation and little noise. Within a few very short months, however, the blades began to dull, and soon it was just spinning its wheels (very quietly, I must admit). I hesitate to even call them blades because they didn't sharpen anything--they just ground pencils to chewed-up nubs unfit even for prison use. Bottom Line: if you happen to be driving through rural Texas and see blue bits of plastic on the side of the road, please don't judge me.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've always made do with the frustrating little handheld pencil sharpeners, but no more. I'd forgotten what it was like to have a truly sharp pencil!

I thought this might be a little more pencil sharpener than I needed, until I started sharing it with my mom. She now uses it for all her various sizes and hardnesses of drawing pencils, and she can't stop raving about it. So in addition to schools, it would be a good choice for art classes.

Keep in mind that quiet does not mean silent. It has to make some noise to do its job well, but it IS less noisy than other electric pencil sharpeners.

I've had the unit for about three weeks now, and I'm quite pleased with it. My only issue, and it's minor, is with the catch tray ("shavings receptacle"). It comes off a lot more easily than it goes back on. If you press too hard on the front of the unit to secure the suction cups, the catch tray will come off. Also, be very careful when you go to empty it. Be sure all the shavings are in the FRONT of the tray before you remove it. Otherwise, you could have a big mess on your hands requiring a Dustbuster for cleanup. (Yes, I speak from experience.)

If any problems arise with the unit in the future, I'll adjust my review and rating to reflect such problems. So far, I'm happy to recommend it.

September 6, 2012
It has been a little over a year since I posted my review, and I'm happy to report that my sharpener is still working every bit as well as it did when I first received it. No mechanical problems at all, and the pencils still come out just as sharp.

There is one small design flaw worth mentioning. On the bottom of the unit, where the catch tray attaches to the sharpener, there's a tiny space on each side where shavings leak out onto the desk.

I have been a teacher for five years. The school provides these pencil sharpeners. They work great AT FIRST. They sharpen a pencil in 6 seconds. But I have gone through a dozen of these because they do not effectively sharpen a pencil beyond a month. The other teachers and I have informed our school of this inferior product in hopes that they will stop purchasing it. I have a 5-year old X-ACTO that is still working. I will never buy a Bostitch product again. THIS PENCIL SHARPENER DOES NOT SHARPEN PENCILS EFFECTIVELY AFTER ONE MONTH.
