Works like a champ in the classroom, hasn't "frozen up" (or overheated) yet, and that's saying a lot in a math classroom! However, the reservoir for shavings needs to be emptied quite often and is kind of a pain to empty. You have to dump the "bucket" part, then kindof scrape out the "tunnel" type part that leads to the bucket. Messy.

This sharpener (not stapler) was completely disappointing. Our main complaint is that it sharpens unevenly -- we get a point of wood, not pencil lead (see pictures). VERY disappointed in this product. Don't know if I can trust this brand again.

    Comments about X-ACTO Vortex 1730 Electric Pencil Sharpener Black:

    Worst pencil sharpener EVER. Used it rarely and never sharpened to a good point, even new. Very loud. Will be replacing it with a manual sharpener from another company. Expected better quality from this brand.

      Comments about X-ACTO Vortex 1730 Electric Pencil Sharpener Black:

      I sure wish I had read the reviews first. I would have never purchased this for my boss. It just didn't sharpen his pencils. He tried three of them. Then I tried one. It really was ridiculous. All he wanted was a pencil with a point. And, on top of all of that, it is so noisy. No one wants to hear all that noise in an office setting.

          Comments about X-ACTO Vortex 1730 Electric Pencil Sharpener Black:

          The sharpener stopped working around the 1 year mark give or take. What gets me is I wasn't sharpening pencils very often..

          Had our technician try to look into fixing it, but came up empty. Time to shop again.
