    This sharpener is a great little sharpener. It's very even in its sharpening ability. It isn't going to be for someone who sharpens 20 or more pencils a day, I wouldn't think, but it's great for a moderate use. I use mine for colored pencils and it sharpens to a nice even point, is easy to use, doesn't grind. The noise is moderate in my opinion. Some reviewers said this one was loud, but I wouldn't consider it any louder than any other sharpener I've ever used. I think it's a great value with great quality.

    I am an accounting student so having very sharp pencils and keeping them sharp is a must. I use this as my homework/note taking pencil. Without a sharp pencil things get sloppy in accounting really fast and I constantly have to sharpen my pencils. While I'll Give a thumbs up for the power this item has it has its problems. Firstly, it EATS pencils like The Cookie Monster eats cookies. It puts a long sloping taper on the pencil but exposes very little lead. When I say very little, I mean very little, and when you go to touch up the point it eats up a whole lot of pencil. Next, the hole is too small. If you have a previously sharpened standard pencil you can get it in without too much problem, but a new pencil that hasn't been sharpened before really has to be twisted and turned until it is just right to go into the small sharpening hole inside the machine. You go to put it in and the motor kicks on but it's not sharpening the pencil because it hasn't cleared the internal opening to the cutters. The third point of contention is that it is difficult to empty the waste and requires a screwdriver. I haven't had to empty it yet, but I don't like that point. Lastly, you have to be careful of what pencils you buy. Most newer pencils are made from a rubbery substance. The instructions say not to use those in this sharpener because they will clog the cutter. Most of the time when you buy pencils in a pack you can't tell if they are made out of gummy wood or not. If you can afford a better sharpener get it, but this is about the best you will find in this price range. Unfortunately I had to go cheap because I was on a tight budget.

    Purchased a cheaper sharpener last time and it broke within months. So far very happy with this product. Nice clean sharp point with every use.

          Comments about X-ACTO XLR 1800 Electric Pencil Sharpener Metallic Putty:

          We only had it two weeks. The children didn't even use it so they are not to blame. It was only used by adults. First of all, the automatic stop feature didn't work from the beginning. And now I find that after only two weeks of sharpening pencils in this "heavy duty" sharpener, it doesn't want to work anymore. By that I mean, when I put a pencil in it comes on but that's it. It doesn't turn or sharpen. It just makes a whole lot of noise. In my opinion, it's not worth your time or money because you'll only be returning yours like I have to return mine.
