excellent office device for sharpening

Solid, stays in place while in use. Stops automatically when pencil is sharp. Point of lead is extremely sharp and pointed when completed.

This sharpener is a piece of junk. I purchased one on August 23, 2011 and the thing stopped working on January 4, 2012. I thought I might have gotten a lemon, so I purchased another one on January 11, 2012 with the $4.99 protection plan. The thing broke again on January 25, 2012 (2 weeks later!). This sharpener was not abused or overused during either instance. Staples was very unhelpful in responding to my request for a flat out refund and refused to give me one. Co-worker also had same issue with the next model up. Stay away from these sharpeners. Buy from someone else.

I had to take it back

By NaNa

Comments about Staples® Power Pro Electric Pencil Sharpener, Medium-Duty, Gray:

I bought this pencil sharpener in Williamsburg, Virginia Staples while on vacation for my grandchildren who are homeschooled. When we got home and sharpened pencils, the sharpener did a great job, however, it would not shut off, just kept running.. The sharpener was supposed to sharpen and stop when the pencil is sharpened. I was told at the store that they never had one of these sharpeners returned due to failure, but they had many of the cheaper ones returned. I returned the sharpener to my local store in Cumberland, Md. and purchased another one hoping it works.

Horrible

By Jack

from New Jersey

Comments about Staples® Power Pro Electric Pencil Sharpener, Medium-Duty, Gray:

I purchased this sharpener and brought it home. To my dismay it sharpens only HALF of the pencil, leaving the other half with a wooden sheath covering the lead. When I went back to staples to return the sharpener the manager offered to do an even exchange because I didnt have the receipt. I wanted to try the sharpener out BEFORE I left the store and to my dismay again it only sharpened HALF the pencil. The manager and I tried several different brands of pencils and it did the same thing with each and every one! Left a thin sliver of wood on one side of the lead. When I asked about getting a refund, she said she would only be able to give me the lowest price it hasEVER sold for. She then informed me it was $4.38 !! I dont think I have ever seen them sell for this price, EVER! I took the even exchange and walked out! If you buy this model, KEEP YOUR RECEIPT! and get the protection plan as you WILL need it!

Honestly dont waste your money on this product. You can do a better job with the old school wall mount Boston one that you manually hand crank!

A nice pencil sharpener

Comments about Staples® Power Pro Electric Pencil Sharpener, Medium-Duty, Gray:

The angled feed for the pencil (compared to our old unit which was vertical) seems to reduce chance of the pencil lead breaking off in the sharpener.

Comments about Staples® Power Pro Electric Pencil Sharpener, Medium-Duty, Gray:

We had purchased the Staples® Bottom-Empty Electric Pencil Sharpener, Medium-Duty and we're very disappointed with its inability to sharpen our pencils and took a chance on another Staples product (this one) and we are very happy with the results.

economical, but not the best performance

By Jenr8er

Comments about Staples® Power Pro Electric Pencil Sharpener, Medium-Duty, Gray:

This pencil sharpener definitely sharpens, but my complaints would be that the sharpener only fits one size of pencil, and most of the time you have to pulse the pencil in and out a little to keep the motor running, otherwise it doesn't have the strength it needs to keep going. In the future, I would opt for a stronger sharpener with more size options.
