Excellent product, better than most of the other brands.

I had almost given up on electric sharpener until I saw this model.

Only one caveat: it only takes pencils of standard diameter --some

color pencils are slightly thicker and they will not fit. So it is

not royalty but it is sharpening aristocracy.

Sharpener works well for new pencils, but used pencils don't get very sharp. If pencil has not sharpened evenly, it comes out the same way when sharpened in this pencil sharpener. I was really disappointed in its performance.

I purchased this pencil sharpener for my 3rd grade classroom after already having gone through 3 cheaper sharpeners this year. One of my students brought in this exact model for about a week between sharpeners, and I was amazed at how well it worked so I ordered one of my own for the class. It performed excellently for about 3 weeks--it quickly ans quietly sharpened pencils into very sharp points. After that, however, it took longer and longer to sharpen (you would have to move the pencil around and apply pressure to the pencil to get it to sharpen evenly) and the "sharpen" light no longer worked. It only lasted about two more weeks, and now it is completely broken. You can hear the motor when you put a pencil in, but the mechanism that turns to actually sharpen the pencil does not move. It wasn't worth the $50 I paid for it, and it's not worth the $30 it's currently listed for. Save yourself the frustration and find another sharpener.

I bought this sharpener for my kids in school and within 3 months, it quick working. The motor runs when I put a pencil in, but doesn't sharpen! I can't find a number to call customer service... will be going with a more reputable brand next time. Very disappointed.

Bought this for home use, had it for less than one year, and it is broken. Therefore, I would not recommend this pencil sharpener. Only thing good about it was it's upright design. The area where you empty it appears large, but is actually very small, and you have to open it on top of the garbage, otherwise it spills all over the place. Sometimes, it will sharpen only one side of a pencil, and on the other side, the lead is still covered even though it's pointy. Main thing is that it broke after a year!!

I bought this for my classroom after having a Panasonic one for 10+ years. This one lasted for 18 days before breaking. It started off great and was an excellent choice, but for busy places it is not the best. It is a shame because I really thought this one would be an excellent buy, but I was wrong. Sharpener companies need to test their products in a busy classroom or office to really get an idea how they will stand up for the consumer. Surely this would last for the average person who only sharpens a few pencils a day. Kid tested and not teacher approved.

IT does not make a sharp point on the pencil. Their is an auto stop feature which would be nice but it stops the pencil from being 100% sharpened. Also, I put this in my classroom and it broke within a week. Not good for high usage areas.
