Laser Doesn't work

By jls786

Comments about Swingline ClassicCut CL300L Laser-Guide Trimmer:

The main product feature, the laser, doesn't even work correctly after being aligned. Thats the reason i BOUGHT IT! Very dissapointed in the purchase and I wouldn't recommend. I spent so much money on product labels and they have all been cut incorrectly by my employee. Now I realize it wasn't his fault it was the trimmer.


Not an accurate device

Comments about Swingline ClassicCut CL300L Laser-Guide Trimmer:

Was very excited to upgrade to this cutter but now very disappointed. I trusted that the Swingline name would be a quality product and did not research reviews, I should have. The edge that you would butt the paper against is bowed and useless. I have to take extra time to line up my paper with the printed grid to get a decent cut. Attaching a photo of the edge, trying to cut black paper, there should be no tan showing against the ruler! I paid extra for the laser which is useless. It goes out of alignment quickly which takes more time to find the allen wrench to fix it. I've stopped using that featur


Very poor quality

Comments about Swingline ClassicCut CL300L Laser-Guide Trimmer:

We purchased this trimmer to replace one we have had at least 64 or 5 years. This new trimmer does not cut as well as the one we thought was worn out. Single card stock or 3mil laminate both get caught and do not cut.

Stop! Do Not Buy!

Comments about Swingline ClassicCut CL300L Laser-Guide Trimmer:

We bought this trimmer so we could cut an 8.5 x 11 piece of paper so we can make small story books for our autism clinic. I am finally tired of dealing with this useless product and should have taken it back months ago. I have attached pictures so you can see what it does to your plain copy paper as you try to get a clean cut and this is with no more than 3 pieces of paper. This paper trimmer will also mess up with only one sheet of paper and does not even come close to the 15 sheet capacity. On top of that, the laser is rather useless as it doesn't even line up correctly with the cut edge even if you adjust it per the written instructions. Next issue is that one of the cut edges gets rolled up after you trim the paper. This has been happening since I bought the trimmer and I thought it was operator error, but I have tried slow cut, fast cuts and this trimmer just cannot do what it was labeled for.


Good quality

Comments about Swingline ClassicCut CL300L Laser-Guide Trimmer:

Works fine but there are no detailed instructions in the pamphlet. I still haven't gained access to the battery compartment, it shouldn't be this difficult to get into. I have no idea how the laser works since there are only illustrations in the pamphlet and no details in the form of written instructions.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
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.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
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.
