    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I bought this product about two months ago as i have toddlers that i am homeschooling so was wanting to laminate flashcards and learning pages , long story short same thing as all these other bad reviews it started doing this weird clicking sound and putting "lines" in the lamination ...i have been very meticulous and careful nothing has ever been jammed in there .... in an attempt to decipher the clicking origin i pushed the release button for the first time ....cut my finger because the little plastic cover piece flipped off??? Now when i try to turn it on all the lights just blink and blink .... anyway pretty disappointed thoight id be able to get more use out of it than i did . Wish i wouldve read more reviews before buying lesson learned!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for occasional use. Fine for occasional use, 1-5 laminations of letter/legal size paper in a session. This is NOT designed for heavy use (plastic gears) and should not be left on continuously for long periods of time (multiple successive hours). Substrates of 5mm or less can be fed through without issue but I would not use anything thicker as it reduces the meshing of the drive gears (clicking sound). Periodic cleaning of the rollers is a must due to the accumulation of dirt in general - disassemble with caution as it may void your warranty. Overall it is of good basic design for lite use as in instructional signs, point of sale signs, directional signs for use indoors or outdoors.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worked for about 30 days I got this and was thrilled with the purchase because I could laminate file folder for my students. After about 30 days the clicking noise started and now all three lights flash when I turn it on plus the clicking noise. So basically I have a wasted product now

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from question? I bought this a month ago. The release button keeps clicking. Nothing is stuck. It is creating skip lines in my laminated pages. Is there a way to fix this myself with out returning?

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Easym to use Although I've had mine for over a year now, I've only laminated 8 pieces in the year it kept my last piece, and of course I didn't keep any of the paper work. Now I have to get another one, but it WILL NOT be a Scotch, as this is my second one.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Money for Constant Laminating Jobs! I bought this product at the beginning of the school year. When I first bought it I loved it and it worked like a dream. I had so many things to laminate to get the school year started. About two months or so of using this machine, my paper started to get jammed. I tried using the auto release lever but that does not work at all. I have ended up opening the machine by unscrewing it from the bottom and sides. I have gotten multiple paper jams since then and now the little plastic knob that covered the release lever has broken off. Every now and then, I would get smooth finishes. Over this past weekend, I had many pages to laminate and one of the pages got caught and I had to pull it through. I tried laminating pages after that but all my pages came out wrinkled, so I turned the machine off. I attempted to finish my laminating job this morning but when I turned the laminator on, it started smoking. I am so upset! I hope I bought the extended warranty so that I can return this product and look for a better brand!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I only recently owned this machine and mainly use it to laminate teaching materials for tours that I give at an art museum. It has always produced a perfect product for me.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product I got this as a gift two months ago. I am a special education teacher and I have only used this twice. The first time it put so many wrinkles in my items. The second time I used it the laminate seemed to have curled down or bunched up within the machine and now it is jammed. I pushed the release button and the plastic part broke off and the metal lever cut my finger. I am extremely disappointed with this product. It was highly recommended it to me by another special education teacher.
