I use this sharpener to sharpen regular size, no. 2 pencils that are placed in the pews for our congregation to use. It is wonderful - powerful and easy to use! It doesn't get hot and stop like others I have tried.

This sharpener is about to be replaced! I use it in the classroom and sharpen roughly 40-50 pencils each day. There is no auto-off function, so I continually have to check to see if the pencil is sharpened or not. Occassionally a pencil point breaks off in the unit and the whole thing has to be opened up to get it back out. It eats pencils -- they are noticeably shorter after using the sharpener. It is also loud enough that I cannot hear anyone talking while I am using the device.

Comments about X-ACTO Powerhouse 1792 Electric Pencil Sharpener Blue:

X-ACTO sharpener is great for my busy school setting. Daily use by many different users and this sharpener continues to do its job simply to make a pencil sharp. I like that its not too loud. Overall I'm happy I purchased it and expect this to last.

Powerhouse Electric Pencil Sharpener

By Denis Sweeney

from Corning, New York

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

Comments about X-ACTO Powerhouse 1792 Electric Pencil Sharpener Blue:

The X-ACTO Powerhouse 1792 Electric Pencil Sharpener Blue by X-Acto, that I purchased at Staples, is by far the most efficient and productive pencil sharpener I've ever owned. Other electric pencil sharpeners would "chew up" nearly half a pencil before it was anywhere near sharp.

However, since I bought the X-ACTO Powerhouse 1792 Electric Pencil Sharpener a few weeks ago every pencil I have sharpened are sharp - "to the point." If you're looking for a top notch electric pencil sharpener - the X-ACTO Powerhouse 1792 Electric Pencil Sharpener is the one to buy!

I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THIS PRODUCT

Comments about X-ACTO Powerhouse 1792 Electric Pencil Sharpener Blue:

I BOUGHT THE X-ACTO POWERHOUSE 1792 ELECTRIC SHARPENER FOR MY OFFICE. I AM EXTREMELY DISSATIFIED WITH THIS PRODUCT. IT DOES NOT SHARPEN THE PENCILS EVENLY. IT MAKES A SHARP POINT BUT ONLY A VERY SMALL PART IS LEAD THE REST AROUND IT ALMOST TO THE VERY BOTTOM IS THE COVERING. I TRIED TURNING THE PENCIL WHILE SHARPENING AND SOMETIMES THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE. I DON'T THINK THAT ONE SHOULD HAVE TO MANEUVER THE PENCIL LIKE THAT WHEN SHARPENING IT. IT SHOULD SHARPEN THE PENCIL EVELY BY JUST PUTTING IT IN THE SHARPENING HOLE. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT AT ALL. I REALLY SHOULD HAVE RETURNED IT.
