This was so easy to begin using right out of the box. Barely had to read directions! I'm generally impatient when it comes to learning and using new office support machines, but this one took just a few minutes to figure out. It does everything it is supposed to do. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars to punch capacity is because I found I had to use fewer sheets than recommended to get a perfect result. Sometimes the sheets of paper don't want to fit snugly down into the punch slot on the left hand side. I wasted several sheets of paper till I found out I had to be VERY careful about making sure they were all the way down. Otherwise, EXCELLENT all the way across-the-board.

Please never ever purchase this machine, it has been three months to me when I purchased this machine, and I could not use it because the material supply with this was not proper, for example there is no option for a4 size paper moreover upper coversheet and below cover sheet do not match, there is no option for more than 100 sheet binding etc.

        Having used several different binding machines in the past, both manual and electric, I have to say this is one of the easiest to use and quick to bind. Good for a home office or small business office, for those who don't need to bind thick items, or in large bulk.

                  I've been using binding machines for 2 decades. I really enjoy using this machine. The only issues I've had are the guides and it is difficult to tell if your pages are clear at the bottom to make sure you don't waste paper or covers.

                      I had purchased a Swingline Binding Machine two years ago and thought it was a great machine. It was easy to operate (looked nice) but it failed me miserably when I was under pressure to put together a presentation for a Board Meeting. Very disappointed!! The presentations had to be stapled....! I decided to replace the Swingline with a Fellowes product because I have had good experiences with their products in the past. So far, the Pulsar+300 machine has performed extremely well. The cover folds down over the machine and stores very well.

                          As the machine is brand new - and my first binding machine - it is very much living up to expectations. I bought the machine to bind text books for the data-modeling technique I teach, and it will save me a lot of money over using three-ring binders. However, the included instructions required a lot of trial and error to get the first one right. I strongly suggest recording a YouTube video of someone using the machine correctly, and including a link in the instructions. I can see that the process is fairly hard to describe, but easy to demonstrate. (For example, the instructions simply say "insert binding comb" but don't mention that there is right-side-up and Upside-down. A video would eliminate trial and error.)

                              Vertical alignment of pages helps keep the pages at correct position for punch. The machine is working as advertised. The electric punch is saving my arm a lot of work! I would like to see the "on" light visible while lid is closed, so I won't forget to turn it off.

                                    My use of the Office Comb Binder is personal. I am a retired Paralegal, and had used Binders previously in legal work. Now I use the Comb Binder for projects in my ministry at St. Aidan's Episcopal Church in Milton, GA, by binding Advent and Lenten Devotional Booklets, the Hagaddah that is used for our Passover Dinners and other projects. I also use it for my ministry in Community of Hope International for all types of reports. This product makes my work look much more professional.

                                    Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                                    Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                                    Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.

                                    How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
                                    Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
                                    Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                                    Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                                    Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
