Awesome! Does exactly what it says it does!
August 28, 2015
So far I've had no problems. I got a package of 36 Prismacolor colored pencils in the same delivery. None of them were sharpened, so I was very thankful I had ordered an electric pencil sharpener.
It takes a bit of force to get the pencil in far enough to activate the sharpener. I was nervous at first at pressing so hard. I eventually got the hang of it, and it sharpened them all beautifully.
There were a few pencils that I had trouble pulling out. I'm not sure what the difference was. They were a little scraped on the sides once I did remove them. I don't know if those pencils were a fraction larger than the others, or what the cause was, but it's not enough of an issue to bother me any. I would say if you're going to sharpen fancy designer pencils, or family heirloom pencils, keep looking.
This is only one size (whatever standard pencil size is). That kind of bums me out, but for the price, and quality, beggars can't be choosers!
At one point I knocked it off my coffee table, so it fell about 2 ft onto hardwood floor. The case stayed on like a champ! A few minuscule shaving flecks managed to escape, but I was super impressed the whole casement didn't fly off! That alone was enough to buy my loyalty, since I am a born klutz.
The description mentions that it won't oversharpen, and that feature worked perfectly for me! It would still make sounds like the little motor was running, but I could tell the blades (or tiny beavers? I have no idea) were no longer engaged.
I am very pleased with my new electric pencil sharpener (Look out world! I'm movin on up!), and would recommend to family & friends.
