My son busted up his old sharpener after a year, which had a simple mechanism batteries attached to a motor which spins a regular sharpener blade.
I was actually suprised just how cheap the components that go into these things are when I took it apart, most of these things it appears arent designed to last.

However maybe this Staples model is different? I cant say as I've only had it a month or so. I was suprised when I got this to see it didn't have a regular sharpener inside but something thats more like a grinder, this means it doesnt sharpen as fast as other models.. as it grinds instead of cutting. Still maybe it will last more than a year, only time will tell if this design is better (Im no sharpener expert!). However with Staples guarantee you can bring it back anytime if it breaks so its a no brainer really.

The one major design flaw was that you have to read the manual to find out how to orientate the batteries as this information is not on the device, which is a pain.

Comments about Staples® Slimline Battery Operated Pencil Sharpener:

The sharpener is surprisingly powerful. Its small size and being battery operated would lead you to think that it would operate weaker than an AC powered device. It sharpens the pencils quickly and puts a very nice point on it. Haven't had one pencil lead broken yet.. All in all I am very pleased with it..

Comments about Staples® Slimline Battery Operated Pencil Sharpener:

Unfortunately, this was a very poor purchase.I have returned it in less than 14 day– It functions poorly at best. It should receive no stars for recommendation. Unfortunately the review program requires at least one star

I have now purchased an electric pencil sharpener – My hope is this will function better.

Comments about Staples® Slimline Battery Operated Pencil Sharpener:

wan't thrilled. It broke after only a few uses, and when it did work, it sounded like it could barely sharpen. I wouldn't recommend.

    Comments about Staples® Slimline Battery Operated Pencil Sharpener:

    The sharpener looks nice but it made a short squeal when I put new batteries in it and then it didn't work at all. I tried another set of batteries and got nothing. I didn't get to use it once. Maybe I just received a dud. Staples issued a credit. Thanks!
