Best Pencil Sharpener?

I'm going to purchase a new electric pencil sharpener but before I do, I'd really like to hear what other teachers think is the best electric pencil sharpener out there. I've been using an Imikas, which I like, but it dulls quickly. I want one that sharpens to a sharp point, not a roundish point. My students won't be using the pencil sharpener, only adults.
Thank you for any thoughts!

I would also get one with a heavy-duty motor. Even without the kiddos using the sharpener, it will most likely get a lot of use. The cheaper models just didn't hold up for me.

Be sure to keep the sales receipt. It is guaranteed for a year and they replace it immediately.
