I am happy with this so far because the vertical top hole design doesn't take up a lot of room on my desk compared to the front hole electric sharpeners, and it's stylish and modern looking, and I like that it had a choice of colors other than black (I got a bluish silvery one - would have liked pink or purple). It also empties easily and neatly. It comes with an AC cord so it's not going to consume batteries. The packaging was 100% recyclable. And it has a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

I bought it for my grade schooler to be able to sharpen pencils. It sharpens VERY well - almost dangerously so. But we have had one problem so far in that it jams/locks up on half the pencils we sharpen. I don't know if it's the type of pencil (we have only been sharpening Crayola colored pencils thus far), or if it will do that all the time. The only way to unjam it to get the pencil out is to unplug it, and then plug it back in. I am concerned about the long term effect of this jamming, so we'll see. It has the satisfaction guarantee as I mentioned above, so I am trying not to worry.

I am a middle school English teacher, so needless to say I need a good, sturdy pencil sharpener for consistent daytime use at school. I had an older electric sharpener that was getting quite loud, so I traveled to Staples to purchase a new one. The first day or so was fantastic. And then the jams started.
The sharpener would stop mid-sharpen, and only begin again when tapped against the counter or the heel of the hand in order to shake loose the shavings inside. These jams became more frequent, and then finally, about one week after purchasing, it quit entirely. I am entirely displeased with this product.

Not a medium duty sharpener

By NYC teacher

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples® Bottom-Empty Electric Pencil Sharpener, Medium-Duty:

I am a teacher and use the sharpener myself to keep a few sharpened pencils for children who may have have a pencil or broke the ones they had. I used this sharpener for 10 pencils the first day, all went well. I was on the 6th pencil the following day and it started clicking. It is light wait and I don't think it would survive a fall so don't let children use it.

Great product

Comments about Staples® Bottom-Empty Electric Pencil Sharpener, Medium-Duty:

I brought this product for my classroom and it works great. I have brought different brands in the past and they were way more expensive than this one and didn't work as well. Some would just grind the pencils down to nothing, others would stop working. I bought a different staples pencil sharpener recently and decided to have two in my classroom. It sharpens the pencils to an exact point and shuts off after sharpening. I love that feature about those sharpeners.

Attractive design, mediocre performance

By G W

from Brattleboro, Vermont

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Staples® Bottom-Empty Electric Pencil Sharpener, Medium-Duty:

I bought this because I was impressed with the smart design animated assumption that price I paid for it indicated a higher level quality, which I didn't find. They provided about six months of good sharpening, using it once or twice a week, and then about a year of needing to gingerly feed the pencils into it so they wouldn't overwhelm the motor. And in the last couple months, it started sharpening the pencils off-center which makes it useless.

I have bought a X-Acto sharpener in hopes of having better performance. Time will tell

Good Sharpener

By Chrismr

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples® Bottom-Empty Electric Pencil Sharpener, Medium-Duty:

I like it being verticle instead of horizontal -- when I sharpen a pencil the sharpner does not move as it would if I had the other type.
