Reviews
Westcott iPoint Evolution Battery Pencil Sharpener Assortment is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Good Not sure why all the negative comments either. I am an engineer with one of the top aerospace companies in the nation. I have this sharpener sitting on my desk and I use it daily. It works fine. As a matter of fact, people in the adjacent office come in and use my sharpener all the time. Possible explinations for the negative comments could be that the sharpener does stall if you push down too hard. Just enough pressure to get the motor going is enough. Anymore than that, and it will stop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love This Sharpener! I love the look/design of this product (honestly that was the main reason I bought it, aside from needing a new sharpener). It sharpens pencils to a nice point. I have used it for #2, #2.5 "regular" pencils and drawing pencils. Once I figured out how to empty it, I loved it even more! The whole top is a cap that screws off (see the line about 3/16" down from the top).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How To Empty! Works great. Even the kids can't break it. However I could not figure out how to empty it. Jim 0319 noted "instructions were on the company website under "Frequently Asked Questions". When I looked at the FAQ, the visual aids were little help. It is actually just the top 1/4 inch that easily twists off, counterclockwise with no muscle use, just like Jim0319 said. And not the entire top. Took me a couple of minutes. But it twists off easily. Awesome sharpener, with three people in school, we use it daily.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from School Use Takes Its Toll I use this in my 3rd grade classroom. I bought it because my previous ipoint evolution stopped working after 2 years. After 3 weeks of school, this pencil sharpener has started making a loud clicking noise and won't sharpen our pencils. I am terribly dissapointed since my other sharpener lasted 2 years. I don't know what to do to fix it since it broke after normal use! The only reason this got 3 stars is because my previous model lasted for 2 school years of daily use!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What More Could You Want When It Works? This does what it is supposed to! I know, rare in this world. Unlike a silly Apple product or the interent I find my pencil sharpener reliable. The instructions are straight forward and once you go through them it is very easy, otherwise I would never figure out how to empty the shavings. It sharpens but not too sharp. That means that I am not cutting the paper with the pencil lead and that my pencil actually lasts longer. Overall it is a very nice utlitarian sharpener and it does what it is supposed to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets To The Point Not sure why reviews say this doesn't work at all -- has worked on a variety of colored art and #2 pencils just fine. I think the trick is to push gently so as not to break off any of the pencil which would prevent it from getting to the point. I've pushed gently until I stop feeling resistance and it's been perfectly sharp every time. The one challenge was figuring out how to open the darn thing--had I not resorted to the internet, I would have broken it with one more try...completely not-intuitive design. If you want people to unscrew the top, you need to make affordances so people know how to use it, e.g. put vertical lines around the lid to make it look like a lid and clear that it should be twisted. A pencil sharpener shouldn't require a manual, let alone an online FAQ.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like It A Lot! This works great for sharpening pencils, however, I did not keep the instructions so it's been interesting trying to figure out how to empty the shavings. Thanks for the other comments here. Will try them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed by lack of disassembly We've had one of these a few years ago and it just conked out. I could feel the tip of the pencil break off and jam in the bottom so I'm pretty sure that is the problem but there is no way to take the blade assembly apart and make sure nothing is stuck and not ejecting into the normal area you empty. I'm kind of tired of stuff made in China that is snapped or glued together to save a dollar or two - if they used screws and a more repairable assembly, I'd be a lot happier with it.
