I purchased 2 of these back in 10/06 and I really do love this sharpener, especially for the classroom. I have nearly 165 students in and out of my art classroom each day, so needless to say pencil use (from name writing to drawing projects) is an everyday occurrence. Hand-cranking sharpeners weren't cutting it (especially for kinders - 2nd graders) and regular electric sharpeners couldn't bear the brunt of constant student use. Then I came across a self-sharpening electric pencil sharpener and bought a couple to test them out. To me, they were the most fabulous thing since sliced bread, but when I went back for more, they were discontinued (total disappointment). With some searching I came across the iPoint. Same concept as my other self-sharpening ones, but top loading and cooler design.
Here's the really fabulous part about self-sharpening pencil sharpeners - EVERY STUDENT can use them!!! Yes, my kindergareners are pros at it and take care as to make sure their classmates are using the sharpeners correctly. Yet, I do catch some of them breaking their pencils on purpose just so they can use the sharpeners-slightly frustrating but also amusing. Sometimes my younger students do better using the sharperners than my middle school students - go figure. Another great thing is that I don't have to sharpen pencils anymore!
Draw backs: 1 - they can be a bit sensitive 2 - DON"T ever put in a short pencil - the sharpener will NOT auto eject it. You will end up sitting there forever trying to pick out the pencil-not fun! Stick with sharpening pencils 4.5" or more to be on the safe side. 3 - These sharpeners don't like colored pencils either. 4 - I got a bum one and had a couple of issues with returning it to the company and them FINALLY sending me the correct make and model.

We received a used sharpener and it works like new. It's the best sharpener I've ever seen. You just put your pencil in push it in a little and the sharpener does the rest. When it's done it pops back up to be removed and your ready to sharpen the next one. We did about 3 or 4 dozen pencils and it never overheated. I think it's because you don't have to press and hold wondering if it's sharpened or not.

I do not recommend purchasing this pencil sharpener.

From the moment I removed this pencil sharpener form the box and sharpened my first pencil with it, the motor always sounded like it was "working hard and was strained". I never gave it much thought at the time, outside of making it a point to be gentle when I used it. I rarely use pencils, so I maybe only used it a couple of dozen times - before it broke. I inserted a pencil into it and instead of hearing the usual grinding sound, I only heard a motor spinning.

Since the sharpener was just-out-of-warranty, and thinking that there was something simple inside that may have only come loose, I decided to unscrew the cover and look inside. I was surprised at what I found. One of the plastic gears in the drive mechanism inside the sharpener had simply "snapped" in half. The rest of the mechanism looked to be very cheaply made, with a small motor too, much smaller than I would expect. At least from the inside, it reminded me of a of a product that should have only cost at most $20, not $50 or more.

Given that it was out of warranty, I figured I might be able to contact the company to get a replacement part for it. I figured that, despite it probably being a 25 cent part, they would end up charging me $5 for it as it was a $50+ sharpener. Being that it wasn't a cheap sharpener, they SHOULD have replacement parts, right? I was upset to find that I would not be able to get a replacement part, and I would also not be able to get it fixed as it was out of warranty. They told me that they do not have replacement parts for them since the sharpeners are imported from overseas. If it was under the 1 year warranty, I could return it to them (at my expense) to possibly get a replacement. The end result?

I'm a serious pencil-user and have been frustrated with my X-Acto for years. Even when it was brand new, my pencils took forever to become almost sharp and they got chewed up too quickly. I finally made the effort to replace it but I wasn't able to find any other brand in area stores so started searching online. I never heard of Wescott but after reading all the reviews and comparing against other brands, I decided to give it a try. I'm so thrilled with it, I'm like a kid in a candy store. First pencil I sharpened, I thought the sharpener was broken because after about a second it shut off. It wasn't broken--it had completely sharpened my pencil that quickly. I gathered up about 20 pencils and sharpened them all in the time it used to take to almost sharpen one. I wish I had found this years ago.

I am a teacher that does not have my own classroom but I have plenty of students filtering into my class every day. Often times they come with dulled or broken pencils. After having to replace my hand sharpener for the third time, I decided to spend the $60 on a "quality" sharpener.
At first this was a good move. My pencils were the sharpest in the school. After about 2 1/2 years it stopped working. The custodian tried to fix it but I just received an e-mail today that the sharpener can not be repaired. For $60+ a sharpener should last longer than that. I do not want to even contact the company because I know they will say it is no longer covered under the warranty.
It was a nice sharpener while it lasted, though. Students were awestruck by how it worked so I used it as an award to try to get students to come prepared to my classroom!
Pros:
It was quick and efficient.
It could sharpen any type of wooden pencil except the really short ones.
It was a novel pencil sharpener. Students loved watching the pencil go in and come out on its own.
Cons:
It was really loud. I only sharpened pencils before or after school or for rewarding students only.
It did not last very long considering the use. Keep in mind that I did not use it over the summer and I did not even use it on a daily basis because I am part-time.

I'm not sure what to do next because now I am without a sharpener and I do not want to invest in another expensive sharpener if it won't last more than 2 years.
There has to be a heavy duty sharpener out there that will take on kids in an elementary school.
I wouldn't recommend this sharpener unless you are planning on doing a lighter load of sharpening such as home or office use.
