Don't waste your money on a battery powered sharpener, like I did, unless the portablility is of utmost importance. This X-Acto Electric Sharpener is much more durable and efficient in sharpening pencils. I don't have to worry about battery drainage anymore. Timesaver too, since it can sharpen pencils 10x faster than a battery powered unit. Very pleased with this product.

Lasted four months

I chose this model because it was advertised as HEAVY DUTY.

After four months of non-intensive use, the internal drum seems to have come loose and it no longer sharpens.

Pretty Good House Use

By LDRinTX

Comments about X-ACTO Work Pro Electric Pencil Sharpener, Black (19208):

This sharpener is a good light use sharpener. Be careful not to burn out the motor by trying to sharpen too many pencils at one time. You have to allow the motor to cool down in between sharpenings. With that care it should last. It is a bit noisy but does a great job.

X-ACTO SHARPENER NOT SO EXACT

      Comments about X-ACTO Work Pro Electric Pencil Sharpener, Black (19208):

      Since this was not a cheap pencil sharpener, I expected one with a perky motor which would quickly and cleanly sharpen. Instead, it works with a very slow grinding noise and doesn't do a great job. When I first heard what it sounded like, didn't think it would work at all, but it does sharpen, just not as quickly and cleanly as I expected it would. If I knew then what I know now and had to choose again, I would choose a different sharpener. Another issue which I didn't notice when choosing this model is that the hole where the pencil is inserted is quite small, so it won't accommodate a larger size children's pencil.

          Comments about X-ACTO Work Pro Electric Pencil Sharpener, Black (19208):

          I was hesitant to buy this sharpener when I saw how many negative reviews it had, but our prior sharpener wasn't working anymore (we had had it for 20+ years prior). We are a homeschooling family so we absolutely need to have the ability to sharpen pencils quickly and accurately all the time, which means I absolutely wasn't going to get one with batteries. For the price, it certainly has fit the bill- it's a huge improvement to our previously underperforming sharpener and it wasn't expensive at all. Perhaps I will change my mind over time, but so far it has worked just fine and created nice sharp pencil points.

              This sharpener only sharpened about 10-25 pencils in my second grade classroom. I'm returning it!
