As to the off-center problems, a lot of that is cheap pencils with off-center leads. Also, the hole is generously sized so if you want _exactly_ centered sharpening it'll take some practice and figuring out where the sweet spot is (it might be a mm or so off dead center. This is made good enough, not precision machining.) If you've got good quality pencils and it's leaving wood more than halfway down the point then maybe you did get a bad one.
update: Unfortunately, this sharpener did NOT last me the whole school year. I was slightly upset about that but it is what it is. I had my fingers crossed for this sharpener.
I am an illustrator and use various pencils daily. I just got 'The Powerhouse' and sharpened about 15 different pencil types and here's what I found. Overall, it will eat an entire pencil if you let it, which is the main reason it got 3 stars. I was hoping for a sharpener with a stopping mechanism and this one does not have one. So here are some specific pencils I sharpened and the results...
The Prisma Turquoise and Staedtler pencils: Sharp small point on hard lead, large point on soft lead
Prisma Col-Erase and Very Thins: Sharp small point
Regular Prismacolor colored pencils: Large sharp point
EF/ Stanford Ebony's: Large sharp point
Various Woodless Graphite: Good sharp point
Progresso woodless colored pencils: Good Sharp Point
General's White Charcoal pencil (558): Broke inside the machine and I had to take the entire thing apart... not a bad fix though.
Hope this helps!
