I hate this Laminator! I have used many and wanted a larger one, I have used it many times and almost always crinkles the page, it gets stuck in there...sometimes the top part and sometimes in the middle!!! I hate it and would never recommended it!

I have used other laminators before, and this one is substandard. I like to "frame" photos by putting the photo on top of paper of cardstock of a complementary color and then laminate the whole thing together. My other laminator did this beautifully. This one leaves places where the laminating plastic is not adhering to the paper or cardstock. Even if I just laminate photos alone, there are bubble pockets and there is a space around the edge of the photo where the laminating plastic has not even adhered to itself! I tried to return this product, but discovered the return policy was 30 days rather than 90. What a waste.

Great little product! It's perfect for The occasional project. it warms up really fast and its solid built. Great for homes and children's projects.
However I need it for every day Use and commercial use as well.
The ready light intermittently goes off and on after each lamination although it laminates perfectly.

I am currently in the market to buying a different and stronger commercial brand, So I decided to buy the Apache version commercial use, however I had more issues than I can count with that product so.... I may end up buying this again. This product is not intended for commercial use and heavy wear and tear.

No bubbles, so I am not sure why the other reviews say they are having bubbles. I suspect they are not following the directions... The smell, which is not that bad, goes away after a while. I am using ledger form 11 x 17" and the outcome looks perfect: flat, smooth, professional.

Works fine. I was hoping that the tray displayed was for paper feed where you rest the unlaminated product on the tray and then it would feed through the machine. The machine works opposite. You feed from the other side and it lands in the tray.

Worst laminator I have ever had. It broke the second time I used it. And constantly jammed. Really hoped it would help.

Don't waste your money. I bought this laminator about 2 years ago. I used it to laminate about 30 things and then it broke. I had it a while before I used it so it is out of warranty. Save your money!

The first couple of times you use it there is a little bit of a new-funky smell, but from then on no more smell and it works great and is very efficient. I also like the larger length size. Highly recommend.

Absolutely wonderful!

I had to laminate important documents, and this helped! It's ready to go in about 5 minutes. I love how the light goes on and it clicks, letting me know it's ready. I also love how it has a removable port.

The laminator itself also comes with a few laminating pockets of its own along with two manuals for the laminator, which are identical.

Although it is a great item, there is a weird smell with it when it turns on, which I'm sure that it will go away after a few uses. Other than that it is a fairly great item.

I would recommend the Apache brand laminating pockets, they work well together.

This laminator is excellent!! I have used this machine now several times and have gone through over 150 (12"x18") sheets. It definitely lives up to all it can do. It heated up within 3 minutes and it took about 2 minutes for a sheet to go through.
