I purchased this sharpener last September and for the most part, I really like it. It's heavy duty, has the perfect amount of options and sharpens well. At one point, something happened and it stopped sharpening properly. However, I contacted Swingline to troubleshoot. When we couldn't find/fix the problem, they promptly replaced my product with no hassles. My new sharpener works perfectly yet again and I was very impressed with the service.

I purchased this pencil sharpener for our office a little over a year ago. It is used quite heavily by the office staff. I found that it gets jammed a lot by small pieces of lead that breaks off of the pencils being sharpened. I have to blow the lead out for it to continue working. My faculty use it to sharpen several pencils at a time, particularly before giving a test to ensure students have pencils for scantron sheets. It now seems to get tired after sharpening a few pencils. It will sharpen a few then it just seems to get tired and need to rest awhile before doing any more. It's very frustrating to my faculty. I purchased this item because of my past history with Swingline and the fact that they honor their warranties and stand behind their products. I will be contacting Swingline regarding this issue and I'm sure I will be satisfied with their service once again. Swingline although they are not perfect strive to make it perfect for the customer. I will continue to use Swingline and their products.

Great, sharp pencils

By CaMcMama

from California, USA

Comments about Swingline Electric Pencil Sharpener:

This sharpener works wonderfully. I bought it in 2012 and now in 2015 I need to get some technical support on it. Pretty hefty sharpener! It sharpens triangular pencils as well as round. It doesn't automatically turn off when sharp. Sometimes the sharpening is crooked. But MOST of the time, the sharpener is reliable and wonderful.

If you need a HEAVY DUTY pencil sharpener this is not the one for you

By Isaac13

from Trenton, GA 30752, USA

Comments about Swingline Electric Pencil Sharpener:

I bought this sharpener for school use, and I was really excited to receive this product. I opened it and sharpened 16 pencils on it and it did great. Then after a week I started using it everyday , and that's when it started showing how fragile it is. After sharpening 15 pencils it quit then I waited a hour , and then it only sharpened 5 pencils and quit. This is not the WORK HORSE pencil sharpener I thought it would be. Has a great design but way too expensive for what you get. I am very disappointed in this product's quality.

We have been using Swingline Pencil sharpener in the past and love it. We decided to purchase something more versatile for different pencil sizes and bought the Swingline Optima. We are happy with the results which is very smooth sharp point, fast sharpening and importantly, fit various pencil sizes.

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.
