For years I have purchased electric pencil sharpeners to increase the efficiency in my elementary classroom. Most years I would end up buying more than 1, whether I restricted use to adults alone or allowed students to use it. Out of total frustration, as my class approached the state testing, I broke down and bought what seemed the best available at Staples. My expectations were not high. As soon as I used it, I realized that this sharpener was different! I pushed this sharpener as hard as anyone could and never had a problem. It never overheated. The speed at which pencils were sharpened and the large amount of sharpenings held saved me loads of time. I even allowed students to use it with no problems at all. The year ended with the sharpener still working! When I do need a new sharpener I will definitely buy this one again.

We live in a school district that still send to the classroom and endorses the hand crank pencil sharper that screw on the wall. This is a bad idea in the classroom especially when you have 20-25 students in the class room, lined up to sharpen their pencils in the morning. The students would spend 30 minutes in the morning just to sharpen pencils. This product is advertised as SCHOOL PRO that teachers endorsed, “SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR CLASSROOM USE. THE ONLY KID-TESTED, TEACHER-APPROVED ELECTRIC PENCIL SHARPENER” so I thought it would be a good idea for my daughter’s class, what a mistake.I bought 4 of them for second grade classes in the building, and kept one for my home, as when it is homework time we need pencils with 3 children in the house. They were all loud, would only work for 5 pencils then shut down for at least an hour, and after only 2 months of use they all completely broke one after another. When I gave out the pencil sharpeners I was hailed as a hero but when they broke I was scorned. I [...] got all new pencil sharpeners, but the replacements all broke within 2 months also.What I have learned from this experience is only buy a commercial grade sharpener for a class room, ask around, do research on what you are buying, read the reviews and believe them they bought it so that person would know. I had read bad reviews on this product, but I thought that person just got a bad one, but when it happened to me, I felt taken advantage of. I paid [$] each for the 5 I bought totaling [$] what an expensive lesson. If I could rate it a ZERO I would.

Perfect for classroom

Comments about X-ACTO School Pro 1670 Electric Pencil Sharpener:

If you need a solid electric pencil sharpener this is for you. This is a good product for a classroom with a moderate use. The teachers keep requesting this model when they need a sharpener for classroom. Medium- moderate use, not sure how it will fare with very heave use.

Works great, so far!

Comments about X-ACTO School Pro 1670 Electric Pencil Sharpener:

Really did some research on pencil sharpeners for the upcoming 2014-2015 school year. I teach 6th graders, so I need a reliable pencil sharpener that works well. After googling pencil sharpeners for about a week, this seemed like the one that was coming up with the most positive reviews in this price range. The one thing I've noticed about electric pencil sharpeners is, is that it seems unrealistic for any of them to please all of the people all of the time. Well, after getting this delivered (super fast, btw) I couldn't wait to test it out. I sharpened about 8 pencils in just under 2 minutes time. The sharpener runs relatively quietly and disengages the blades when the pencil is perfectly sharp! This a huge bonus for a teacher who has students that will stand by the pencil sharpener for 5 minutes trying to get the perfect "surgical" point on their pencil. Overall I am happy with this product and hope that it lasts awhile.

exactly what was needed

Comments about X-ACTO School Pro 1670 Electric Pencil Sharpener:

I ordered this pencil sharpener for my granddaughter's class -- she teaches in a middle school in AZ -- I was surprised about how excited the kids were to have an electric pencil sharpener, and they love it!! I got a note from my granddaughter telling me "thanks grandma" from her students... they think it's the next best thing to sliced bread... works like a charm and having the option of different sized pencils was truly ingenious... they actually enjoy getting up to sharpen their pencils now... thanks for a truly useful piece of equipment -- that all classrooms should have.

Great pencil sharpener

Comments about X-ACTO School Pro 1670 Electric Pencil Sharpener:

I have been using this exact same pencil sharpener for 3 years at my elementary school. I recently ordered 3 more from Staples for 3 other teachers at my school. I found the best price at Staples.com. It came with free shipping, a 5% rebate, and arrived in two days. The teachers were shocked when I showed up with their new pencil sharpeners so quickly! We were in the middle of standardized testing, so you know how crucial a good pencil sharpener can be.

I love the large, clear bin for pencil shavings.It is obvious when you have to empty it, but you can sharpen a lot of pencils before you have to empty it. Having an adjustable dial for different size pencils is great too in a school setting. This is a very durable pencil sharpener. Mine has been going strong for 3 years.
