I educate my son at home, and I was REALLY tired of sharpening pencil after pencil manually with a small hand-sharpener.After looking around a bit, I came upon this sharpener and figured I would give it a try since I thought the price was right.I must confess, I was a little concerned that it might not be very good quality (since it was not a "name brand".) [...]Well, I have had this sharpener for a couple of months now and use it almost daily and I am quite pleased with it's performance. Even my young son is able to use it with no problems. His only complaint is that it is loud. (He's right - it is. BUT, it does a good job sharpening pencils evenly and that is all I really wanted to begin with. I can tolerate a little short-lived noise.)If you are on the fence, I would recommend you try it - you can always return it if it doesn't fit your need.

Junk! This item has no power at all. I inserted a Staples-brand #2 pencil and had to work to get it into the sharpener. Then the sharpener whined, slowed, & totally stopped while sharpening! I backed off and it started up, but whined, slowed, & stopped when I tried again. Odd that a Staples product can neither fit nor sharpen Staples pencils. I tried with many different pencils, plus those of my students, then put it back in the box and returned it to Staples.

Electric Pencil Sharpener

By Staples Electric Pencil Sharpener, Light

from Jackson, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples® Electric Pencil Sharpener, Light-Duty:

I am very pleased with the new electric pencil sharpener. I wasn't sure how I would like the fact it needed to be plugged into an outlet and thus restrict moving it when I wanted to relocate. I have found that it is not a big problem, in fact it keeps me and my materials in one location and I find I am not misplacing my materials nearly as much. I am replacing a battery operated that looks very much like the new electric pencil sharpener. I was frustrated by the fact that it was so lightweight I had to hold it down to use it and it seemed like I was having to replacing batteries quite often.

"Sharp"

By Sharp

from Dexter, MI

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples® Electric Pencil Sharpener, Light-Duty:

Thanks to this little machine my kids will be able to keep their skills "sharp" all summer long. We have yet to find a sharpener that can hold up to our needs. So far we are pleased with its performance and was able to purchase the two year warranty for only one dollar.

Gets the Job Done!

By Nelly

Comments about Staples® Electric Pencil Sharpener, Light-Duty:

This sharpener does what it's supposed to. It's a little pricey for the quality of materials, but it was one of the cheaper ones available at the time we purchased. It works well, but it doesn't have the auto stop feature so you have to check to make sure it's sharpened. Otherwise, it will keep sharpening until you pull the pencil out. We didn't notice any other brands of sharpeners for sale to make comparisons to, only Staples brand. We've tried with different pencils to see how they sharpen. With regular pencils, it works fine. It snags a bit sometimes depending on the pencil. With colored pencils, some of the tips would break off and we'd have to sharpen again. I don't know if it's the brand of the colored pencils or not. Overall, this gets the job done.

Functional but uneven

By Waste Not

from Utah

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples® Electric Pencil Sharpener, Light-Duty:

This is the lower-end electric sharpener our Staples sells, so I wasn't expecting perfection. Generally functional, but the user must carefully manipulate the pencils during sharpening or they come out with only one usable side of graphite. No biggie, just annoying.
