    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.

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

    I ordered this pencil sharpner for home use, and some office use as well. So far it works well, its compact in size, light weight, gets the job done. I think for the price of this sharpner, it does a pretty good job. Noise is about the same as any other basic sharpner, nothing worse or nothing better. The only thing that would make a sharpner better is to have 2 size sharpners, odd size pencils for plans and sketching do not work as well as standard pencils. Regular pencils are fine, they come out even.

    Poor Construction

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

    This is one of the few purchases at Staples that I have had to return. The front of the stapler has a black piece of plastic (where you insert the pencil). This piece was loose and ill-fitting so that you had to hold it against the rest of the body of the sharpener in order for the pencil to be sharpened. I don't know if this is an issue of quality control, but if it is a design issue, then this is not great. Having to hold the black front piece with one hand and insert the pencil and press it with the other hand is not easy.

          It does not sharpen the pencils very well. It leaves one side of the wood very long so it catches when someone is writing with it. It also takes a long time to sharpen the amount it does.
