I purchased this sharpener last September and for the most part, I really like it. It's heavy duty, has the perfect amount of options and sharpens well. At one point, something happened and it stopped sharpening properly. However, I contacted Swingline to troubleshoot. When we couldn't find/fix the problem, they promptly replaced my product with no hassles. My new sharpener works perfectly yet again and I was very impressed with the service.

I purchased this pencil sharpener for our office a little over a year ago. It is used quite heavily by the office staff. I found that it gets jammed a lot by small pieces of lead that breaks off of the pencils being sharpened. I have to blow the lead out for it to continue working. My faculty use it to sharpen several pencils at a time, particularly before giving a test to ensure students have pencils for scantron sheets. It now seems to get tired after sharpening a few pencils. It will sharpen a few then it just seems to get tired and need to rest awhile before doing any more. It's very frustrating to my faculty. I purchased this item because of my past history with Swingline and the fact that they honor their warranties and stand behind their products. I will be contacting Swingline regarding this issue and I'm sure I will be satisfied with their service once again. Swingline although they are not perfect strive to make it perfect for the customer. I will continue to use Swingline and their products.

Great sharpener!

Comments about Swingline ® Optima Desktop Electric Pencil And Crayon Sharpener, Gray/Orange:

I bought this for my son's 3rd grad class, and the teacher and kids all love it. The teacher said that it's working really well. I would have given it 5 stars, but it's only been in use for a few weeks.

If you need a HEAVY DUTY pencil sharpener this is not the one for you

By Isaac13

from Trenton, GA 30752, USA

Comments about Swingline ® Optima Desktop Electric Pencil And Crayon Sharpener, Gray/Orange:

I bought this sharpener for school use, and I was really excited to receive this product. I opened it and sharpened 16 pencils on it and it did great. Then after a week I started using it everyday , and that's when it started showing how fragile it is. After sharpening 15 pencils it quit then I waited a hour , and then it only sharpened 5 pencils and quit. This is not the WORK HORSE pencil sharpener I thought it would be. Has a great design but way too expensive for what you get. I am very disappointed in this product's quality.

Comments about Swingline ® Optima Desktop Electric Pencil And Crayon Sharpener, Gray/Orange:

It not only puts the point back in your pencil, but it has a conveinient holder built in where you can stick your extras.
