Our next option is the X-ACTO Power3 electric pencil sharpener. This pencil sharpener has many appealing features. But I do have some drawbacks and concerns.

The extra-large shaving receptacle minimizes time spent emptying the shavings and prevents jams. That’s definitely a perk. I also really like that it works on art pencils, colored pencils, and regular pencils.

I’m particularly excited about the fact it’s powerful, well-made, and quiet enough not to be disturbing to everyone around you. Especially since I prefer a perfectly sharpened pencil--it can take me a while to be satisfied!

However...

This is one of the most expensive models we’ve reviewed so far.

But, the biggest complaint with this X-ACTO unit?

It doesn’t automatically stop and tends to be wasteful when sharpening pencils. If you’ve ever invested in expensive art pencils, you can see how this would be a problem. It makes me wonder if that extra-large shavings receptacle will be a bonus after all. If the sharpener isn’t efficient, the number of shavings produced will be more than a unit with auto-stop features.
