I'm a school teacher and have had this sharpener for 2 years and it just quit on me. It worked ok and was a little loud, but did not stand the test of time.

Rated 2 out of 5�by Science Teacher Classroom Use - Unreliable
This would probably work well for a single user as it is light and compact. For a classroom, however, it was not durable enough; it lasted less than 6 months, with use a few times per day. The shavings tray is very small, and a lot of shavings and dust do not fall into the tray; they gummed up the gear mechanism. I cleaned out the shavings and dust, but then the gear that turns the sharpening block kept sliding off its partner gear, so it wouldn't work for more than one pencil after taking it apart, resetting it, etc. I tried several times then gave up.
