Pencil Sharpeners

Hi all - I am in need of an excellent quality mechanical sharpener that will last more than a year. I have around $100 to spend - I've burned out 2 X-acto Powerhouse sharpeners this year, and all Boston models that I have tried overheat within 10 minutes. Any suggestions for a long lasting, quick, quiet sharpener?

    Have you taken advantage of x-acto's warranty at all? We have only used x-acto brand, and when they go bad we exchange them for new ones!

    I second that. I also bought the extended warranty from staples and they replaced the sharpener when the exacto warranty expired. I love my powerhouse.
