I'm a teacher and have access to a laminator at work, but wanted something at home for family items. This is awesome, and works really well- can't believe the price! The laminating film is much sturdier than what I'm used to at work, so I feel like things will last for a long time. Great purchase!

Fantastic. Heats up in about 6 minutes, pages go through quickly, results are excellent. Simple to use, solid construction & stable. Looks great & compact too. Feels like a qualty product.

Laminator also included an Amazon Basics sample pack of 3 mil laminating packets, 5 packets each for paper sizes 11x17, 8.5x11, 4x6, & business card size. Wasn't expecting that so a nice bonus.

Also I heard that the lamination process can produce a strong melted plastic smell. However the smell seemed relatively minimal. I still opened a window, but I expected the smell to be quite a bit worse than it was. Not sure if that's due to the quality of laminator or the quality of the Amazon Basics sample packets (or both). Also not sure how that would compare to other laminators, but it certainly doesn't seem to be an issue with this one.

This laminator works perfectly. It arrived very quickly and I immediately opened it up and started using it. It comes with some laminating sheets of various sizes, which was a nice surprise. Most laminating machines do not come with laminating sheets. It heats up quickly and has two heat settings for 3mil and 5mil. To put something through takes a little longer than I expected, but truly I am never in a "hurry" when I'm laminating something. Also, the outside of the machine does not get that hot when in use and heating up. Which is great because if you accidentally bump the machine or touch it, it's not going to burn you. It can also laminate larger items than just 8.5x11 inch paper-sized items. It also has a release button in case you need it. The value is also another aspect that was pleasing. Compared to other machines the price was so reasonable and affordable.

This laminator has exceeded my expectations!!! It came in a huge box, making me think it was going to be so long that I wouldn't know where to store it. But it was just very well protected on-route. The machine is about 16 inches long. I've already laminated many of the 3 X 5" cards that I've colored by using amazon's basic 4 x 6"laminator pouches. Everything has turned out wonderfully. The machine takes about 4-6 minutes to heat up. I do the laminating on my ironing board since it has a non-burn surface in the ironing board cover. The machine doesn't laminate quickly; the pouches move quite slowly through the machine. But since I'm just laminating small amounts of things, that is no problem. Along with the laminator, many different sizes of pouches were included, from business card size on up to very large sizes. After laminating, the items come out pretty warm, but not really hot. I've laminated pictures, printer paper with typing, colored materials, and even leaves and dried flowers with stems. I'm very pleased with the results! This is a great machine for the money, especially for in-home craft use.

 I've laminated 24 documents so far. I bought because I'm a teacher and wanted to laminate things in the comfort of my own home whilst wearing pajamas and being lazy.

The first 14 were fine, but on the 15th the top left corner of things started to curl up. I tried inserting the documents in different areas (the menu vs letter lines), adding more room to the edges, etc, but it still seems to be hit or miss. Sometimes it comes out curled, other times it doesn't. I'm attaching a couple of pictures and a video for you to see. I am using 3mm Amazon Basics laminating sheets -- perhaps the curling could be remedied with 5mm sheets.

Other than that, I'd say it's a pretty good laminator and I don't regret buying it! No weird smells like other users, either, and everything seems to work properly other than the curling issue.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this laminator for homeschool use! Amazing price for the value. Don't pay more for a brand just because it's been around forever. This is a no-brainer purchase along with the Square Trade protection.

I bought this to replace a 3M laminator that I accidentally left on. The price was good and it works just as well as the 3M I replaced. It takes a while to heat up but for my occasional needs that's fine. One nice feature is it will laminate up to 11x14. I'm not sure if I will ever use it to do larger than 8.5x11 but I need it to it can

Decent size, and I like that it handles items up to 11" x 17". However, it does not get hot enough to fully laminate an item without running the item through at least twice. I have it on the 5mil setting (which I would think is hotter than 3mil), and have used the laminating pouches that came with the product, and some that I bought separately (from 2" x 3" all the way up to 11" x 17", and both 3mil and 5mil), and have had to run everything through more than once. In some cases, the edges weren't sealed, and in other cases, the edges were sealed but the area immediately surrounding the paper inside was not tightly sealed. A shame, because I've had mostly great experiences with AmazonBasics products until now.

 This works really well for foiling if it's thick rich black areas that need to be foiled. It gets hot, feeds at a decent rate and heats up pretty fast.

The first one I ordered had issues. The release lever was loose and it didn't work in the 3mil position. It was returned and replaced without a problem. The second is working great. No issues what so ever. Works in both the 5mil and 3mil positions. Heats up in just a few minutes. Easy to use and seals wonderfully. . I'm happy with the replacement.
