What Is The Best Classroom Electric Pencil Sharpener?

As I prepare for my future classroom, I have been researching what are the most important tools that I will need. Since I have been a substitute teacher, I have the ability to see a variety of classrooms, and I noticed most of them have the same electric pencil sharpener. Some of the teachers allow students to sharpen their own pencils, some have a it setup as a classroom job, or the teachers sharpen them at the beginning or the end of the day.

The common sharpener I have seen is the X-Acto School Pro Heavy Duty Electric Pencil Sharpener. I did read both pros and cons for this product.  The most important information I found was colored pencils and decorative pencils should not be used with this product.  Also, Amazon seems to have the lowest price.  I received this sharpener from my parents for my birthday, and I am anxious to see it in action!
