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.

Good Sharpener so far

By Gigi

from Lakewood Ranch

Verified Buyer

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

To get bonus points we are to write over 400 characters! Must be a thesis on a pencil sharpener! I will say that I am very pleased with the sharpener thus far. It is quiet and it doesn't break the lead as some sharpeners do which tells me that it can handle delicate pencils. Hopefully, it will still work good in a year or two as that is my only disappointment with electric sharpeners- they wear out too quickly, so I may have a different opinion in a year or so. With that last thought in mind, please check back with me in a year to see if it was still worth the money!

Did Not Live Up To Expectations

By Senior Citizen

from Wayne, PA

Verified Buyer

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

I thought the medium duty sharpener would do the job for me. I am disappointed because it is not really what I thought it would be from the description on the package. I tried sharpening a colored pencil, which is slightly wider than a regular # 2 pencil, and it took a very long time and did not do a satisfactory job. It works somewhat better on a @ 2 pencil, but still does not have the power I had come to expect from my experience with another company's sharpener. I would not recommend it to anyone sharpening more than a pencil once a week; rather, get a heavy duty sharpener.

I wish I could get it battery powered

By Candy

from Southern Oregon

Verified Buyer

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

My only complaint is that I really would like the power of this sharpener without having to plug it in. I want a powerful pencil sharpener that is ALSO portable. This sharpener is powerful enough for my needs (which some sharpeners aren't). I just wish a sharpener could be made that was both powerful and portable.

Broke in a wk gift for granddaughter

By Gwen

Verified Buyer

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

The electric pencil sharper was the ONLY gift that my granddaughter wanted for me to get her for her Bday. It wasn't cheap and it wouldn't sharpen after one week.
