Perfect or high-use commercial or educational environments, but for artists, illustrators and colorists, this is not such a practical solution.
This pencil sharpener's cutter blade angle is rather shallow, so I cuts the pencils at a deeper angle than other sharpeners with similar Helical spiral cutters.
So, I you have to sharpen your color pencils a lot, especially the soft-wood, soft-core type, you end up using up a lot in size/length - if you use a lot of special (EXPENSIVE) coloring pencils, you end u having to replace them more often, than with manual or variable pitch sharpeners
I ended up returning this model, reluctantly, and purchased a Westcott HALO electric sharpener, which has a single titanium coated helical blade, and I've found it to have a good balance between pencil point length and still a pitch that does not eat up my pencils too fast.

Have had this for a few weeks. I am a personal user, so it is not getting heavy classroom/ office use. My previous electric sharpener was a Bostitch individual-user model and it lasted for many, many years. I wanted one that would go the distance, so I purchased a commercial grade model. I selected this because I needed one that is colored pencil compatible. So far it is doing a fine job, and indeed it is much quieter than my old one. Unfortunately there were no dimensions on the amazon or Bostitch site, so I was surprised to see how large it was. I had to find a new location for it, where my previous one tucked nicely into a nook on my desktop. I can't give it 5 stars because I haven't had it for 10 years, the light that goes on when the pencil is sharp and the anti-microbial

This thing is HUGE and very powerful. It works well and I really like it. It does its job. And you really can replace the blades easy. One thing I REALLY do not like about it is that it has some type of

Very impressed. Can sharpen a variety of sizes of pencils. I have 3 different brands of colored pencils and they all have a different diameter. This even sharpens those triangular shaped jumbo grade school pencils. Very satisfied.

I would give this a higher rating if the housing were more substantial and it was less noisy. t literally rocks back and forth when it sharpens and makes a loud grinding noise. But I love the long point on sharpened pencils. It does a great job!

I got this sharpener almost a year ago, it replaced my old cheap classroom sharpener, this product was quite an investment for the money I paid but it always worked fine and made no problems, I use it in classroom for teachers use only not by students, used in an average of 15-30 pencils at once (sometimes more), works by the 30th pencil as good as by the 1st. smooth sharpening, clean and fast, works as described.

LATELY I have a PROBLEM that sometimes it sharpens uneaven which makes the ready sensor stop the machine when the wood is pointy but no lead visible at all, I have to turn the pencil and put it in again to fix it

This is the best pencil sharpener that I have found. It will give you a great point because it has two cutting rotors in contrast to most other sharpeners which have only one rotor or even just one blade. The only disadvantage is that it is big and heavy for a pencil sharpener. In one way that is an advantage because it doesn't move when you sharpen a pencil (also, it has small suction feet).
