Westcott iPoint Orbit Battery Pencil Sharpener, Black is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of time and space This is the second one I've had. I got the first from my mother and tried to fix it. It was always just breaking the lead instead of sharpening the pencil. Then the broken lead would get lodged in the end and have to be surgically removed. I tossed it and bought a second one thinking the first one must have been a dud. Wrong. Two strikes and you're out. To the trash, iPoint Orbit!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It broke down I purchased your product "iPoint Orbit Electric Pencil Sharpener" around eight months ago. I have been using this pencil sharpener religiously everyday and I absolutely love it. I always gush about this pencil sharpener and I have purchased one for one of my friends as a gift. However, my pencil sharpener completely stopped working and I was very disappointed. It has not even lasted for a whole year before it broke down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and sturdy. Easy to use! This little pencil sharpener is amazingly sturdy and functional! I love it because you can use it with just one hand. It has three tiny rubber pads on the bottom that create just enough suction to secure them to the surface, but not so much that you can't easily pick it up and move it. It never slips!!!! The sharpener is automatic, so you just put your pencil in the top, gently push, and voila. Perfect point. But do keep in mind that it requires batteries that are not included.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless Lasted 2 weeks. Of course I didn't keep receipt so can't get my money back. Don't buy this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it should. It works great and has a small form factor, so it doesn't hog your desk. It's nice that the whole thing can be unplugged (just hold the cord with something else so you don't have to re-tuck it behind your desk), because when you go to dump the shavings, you really have to, since the shavings cup has a hole on the bottom to enable vertical sharpening. It's a slight down-side, but it's not annoying.I'm here though because I broke a pencil tip or something in my sharpener and now the auto-start/stop is working very erratically... I was hoping to find some answers, but I guess I'll just unplug and take it apart soon. Saw all the bad reviews and thought this could use a boost, since apparently people don't leave reviews on brand websites unless they're unhappy (true of many brands it seems).It's worked great for a year, and I'm the guy who likes writing with sharp pencil tips, so it's very handy. If I can't fix it, I'll see if Costco will replace it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Westcott iPoint Orbit Battery Pencil Sharpener The top unscrews and pops off the middle to let you shake out the shavings of your nicely sharpened pencil! The battery compartment is located on the bottom, (not easy to remove) and take 4 double A batteries. Razor sharp blades easily cuts thru creating a nice point. nice viewing area so you know when to empty your shavings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUTSTANDING My 7 year old granddaughter is a budding artist. We keep her several days a week and she draws with a colored pencil set. This sharpener makes a perfectly round, sharp point. It is perfect for this purpose and we have used it a lot. She wants me to buy another sharpener so that she can take it home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sharpener for home use This Westcott iPoint Orbit pencil sharpener is perfect to keep at home. I like the unique shape of the sharpener and the see through plastic. Makes getting a perfect sharp pencil lead easy. The only downside is having to use 4 AA batteries. I would still definitely recommend.

I already have 1. My blade is dull. Where can I get Replacement Blades.

Asked by: Patricia
I saw some blisters showing a combo pack of the pencil sharpenener + 2 replacemente blades at Amazon or Ebay. Wescott should sell just the spare parts. If not, we need to buy 6 shapeners per year. No sense.

Just bought this and am disappointed that you have to hold the pencil quite firmly to give the resistance and it rubs against your hand as it sharpens. Tried it with two out of four orbits that I bought. Is this right?

Asked by: Marg38
There is a strong motor in the sharpener, so it is important to hold the base and pencil steady to get the optimal results.

Is there a way to order the small gray top to lock in the sharpener? I think one of my students accidentally threw it in the trash? I have the clear gray outer ring.

Asked by: jrich_1
I had the same thing happen to me. The top should be available to purchase as it is so easy to accidentally throw away. I love the sharpener, but not that part of it.
