        Needs more power

        Comments about X-ACTO® by Boston® Work Pro® Electric Pencil Sharpener:

        Nice, well-built unit but struggles with even the smaller (golf) pencils. Could use a more powerful motor - especially at this price point.

        Works Great for our small office

        Comments about X-ACTO® by Boston® Work Pro® Electric Pencil Sharpener:

        We got this one because the battery operated small sharpener that we had was not cutting it! So far, everyone seems happy with it! It does not take too much space and it looks great in our copy room. I like that it's not battery operated and that it's heavy enough to withstand the usage. We will try it out for a few more weeks, and if everyone seems to still be happy, we'll be ordering another one for our other departments!
        So far, I'm pretty happy with the item I purchased and hope it continues to work so great!

        Pretty Good House Use

        Comments about X-ACTO® by Boston® Work Pro® Electric Pencil Sharpener:

        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® by Boston® Work Pro® Electric Pencil Sharpener:

            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® by Boston® Work Pro® Electric Pencil Sharpener:

                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!
