Polychromos pencils do not fit. A couple of other brands that I only use occasionally don't fit either. Since I only have a few of those and the bulk of my work is Prismacolor, this is fine. I use a Sharp Tank hand crank for the larger pencils.
Honestly, if I'd really wanted an all purpose sharpener, I'd be disappointed but I knew beforehand exactly what I was purchasing. I'm extremely pleased with the purchase.
-The motor is sufficiently strong; unlike other inexpensive sharpeners that will slow if you press hard on the pencil, this one doesn't.
-The casing seems pretty strong and doesn't feel cheaply constructed.
-The cord is a few feet long to make placement easier.
-It sharpens pencils to an almost exaggeratedly long taper resulting in a wicked sharp point that is easily broken off and could be a hazard for little ones. Great for precise work I guess. I'm no sharpener expert but I've never seen a sharpener make a point so long and fine.
-Non adjustable for pencils larger than the typical standard pencil size.
-Not particularly loud or quiet, kind of in the middle.
-Sharpens fairly rapidly relative to others I have used.
-The black thing on the front is the shavings holder. It does not have a back. Once you pull it off shavings fall out, so emptying requires you hold the whole device over the trash which may be problematic for people with small or weak hands.
-Pencils are pressed down, not forward, which is as is should be... the device stays in place when you are pushing. You don't have to use your other hand to hold it from sliding across the table as you do on so many forward facing ones. This is a superior design IMO.
-The ad claims the blades stop automatically when the sharpening is done. This is a half truth on mine... the blades don't stop, but they do stop sharpening. Once the pencil has a good point the blades are no longer in contact so you can push it to the end reasonably. It does not cut power to the cutters. Maybe mine is defective in that way. I'm honestly not sure what its supposed to do exactly but it works, so I don't care.
I would have preferred clearer advertising about the auto stop, and that the shavings bin hold the shavings completely so you don't have to pick the device up to empty it. Other than that its perfect for my use.
This one is not super quiet, but it works SO fast that it doesn't create a big disturbance.
I even had one junior-high student (stinker!) try to put in a pencil the wrong way, and it still works!
I would recommend this sharpener to anyone who uses standard pencils. (It does not adjust for wider, early childhood-type pencils.)
I wrote the company. They got right back to me. They let me know that the centering isn't adjustable and I should just send it back either for a refund or an exchange. They say that most are centered just right.
It is hard to invest much time in a $20 sharpener. I'm going to try one from someone else.
I won't say "Don't buy it." I hope you are luckier than I was.
