I've used electric pencil sharpeners as a teacher in high school and in my home. The Swingline Electric Pencil Sharpeners do an excellent job keeping pencils sharp and ready to use. They also contain the filings from the pencils so they are easy and clean to dispose of. If you are in a situation where people around you use pencils, an electric pencil sharpener is a must and the Swingline brand is most reliable.

This sharpener lasted less than two years before it quit working. We had an old electric sharpener that had lasted many years. Seems like the newer models aren't built well enough to last for the period of the warranty. I certainly hope I can find another brand to replace this one.

Disappointed

By cradtke

from Washington State

Comments about Swingline Personal Electric Pencil Sharpener:

I am hoping to get ahold of customer service and exchange this product for a new one. I literally have used this sharpener under ten times and it has stopped working. I am baffled. Hopefully, this company will be willing to make right on this product.

Did not Last

By Curtis1104

from Greenville, MI

Comments about Swingline Personal Electric Pencil Sharpener:

Had this product for just a few months and it quit working. My old trusty wall sharpener, has lasted much longer. I have tried everything to get this sharpener to work again. Will be contacting customer service when they open.

This product is unreliable and doesn't last.

By needasharpener58

from Hillsborough Township, NJ, USA

Comments about Swingline Personal Electric Pencil Sharpener:

The sharpener stopped working after only a few months even when the shaving cartridge was empty. It would not restart. The same problem occurred with an identical replacement product. Will never buy Swingline again.

just so so

By Anonymous

from Denver, CO, USA

Comments about Swingline Personal Electric Pencil Sharpener:

I had hoped this would be tough enough not to bog down when I put a pencil in, but my kids can still bring it to a halt sharpening a box of pencils. It is OK, but just OK.

By Toni27

Comments about Swingline Personal Electric Pencil Sharpener:

I love this product especially for the office because it makes little to no noise while sharpening. It gets the job done fast and clean with no mess. The end result is sharp sleek pencils with more time to get my job done.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
