Better than my old one!
Okay, I am a teacher on a budget and I am so upset I spent $10 more on my School Smart electric pencil sharpener two years ago. This sharpener is AMAZING! And cheaper?! The sound is a LOT quieter and the shavings bin is a lot bigger and STURDIER!! It sharpens the pencils to a point without eating them. Im in love with this sharpener! Like others have said, this pencil sharpener is ideal for bulk sharpening pencils. I sharpen about 40 a day and it works great! I'm in love with it!

X-ACTO Teacher Pro is the winner!
By a customer
I'm a teache. This year I'm required to have a supply of sharpened pencils available for students all the time (Students trade an un-sharpened pencil for a sharp one). So, I will be doing a lot of sharpening as will my fellow teachers. I decided to buy 3 electric sharpeners to compare (and to share with other teachers at school). I bought this X-Acto Teacher Pro Electric for $29.99, the Tatji Classroom Heavy Duty for $35.99 and the Avalon Titanium Blade Fully Automatic Heavy Duty for $49.99. Using only wooden #2 pencils, I found that all three work nicely and quickly produce a sharp point. However, there are 5 ways in which this X-Acto Sharpener stands out as my FAVORITE and the BEST: It is super- quiet!, it is able to sharpen multiple thicknesses of pencils, it has a large-capacity compartment for shavings, it has a blue light that comes on when the pencil is sharp and it stops sharpening (so you don't over sharpen and waste pencil) (awesome!) and best of all, it's the lowest priced of the three! The second best sharpener, in my opinion, is the Avalon, but man! It's loud! It is cool the way it takes the pencil down, sharpens it, then pops it back up, but it costs much more and is loud. The Tatji is least impressive compared to these other two, but does work -- seems better for just at home use. The one thing I cannot judge yet is which will last longest. I guess I'll have to wait and see. I hope this has been helpful. :)

Best Sharpener for the Classroom
I brought the X-Acto School Pro Heavy Duty Electric Pencil Sharpener to go in my 3rd grade classroom. This is not the first pencil sharpener I have bought this year. In fact, it is the third! The first two broke with in a few weeks from the wear and tear of 40 9-year-olds jabbing at them all day long. But this one has proven its worth!
Occasionally a plastic pencil wrapping gets caught around part of the inner mechanics of the sharpener, but it is easy to remove, and starts right back up. The pencil shavings reservoir is rather large. I can go all day without emptying it. And with 40 kids and a countless number of pencils coming in and out of my room all day, that's impressive. It even has a safety feature that stops the sharpener from working if the pencil shavings reservoir is not in place or not in at all. This has been a great asset. Little fingers like to explore and investigate.
I have had to change out the rotating mechanics once, but i believe this was because a student stuck the metal end of a pencil into it. Even so, changing the parts out were quick, easy, and relatively inexpensive. I probably could have contacted the company, since there is a warranty, but I didn't remember about it until later.
