              Only drawback with this binding machine is needing to hold up pages and remember to slide paper to the far left so holes are punched correctly. I expect this machine will hold up better than its electric model which broke down in less than 3 years. This machine is definitely a keeper.

                We purchased this product to replace another binding machine. The vertical paper feeder makes the machine quick and easy to use. I really like how the comb placement keeps it in place without having to try multiple times. I would recommend this product to all.

                    The ease when punching holes in the paper was so easy. Overall I love this binding machine compared to our old machine. The function of this one is so smooth. I was amazed on how light weight the machine was too.

                      We have a very busy office here and make alot of manuals for our programs that go out. This binding machine makes it easy for us to get that goal accomplished. The convenient pull down lever that runs across the top is easy to use and soft brittle shoulders. The storage compartment is a bit niffy, just in case I need to measure the correct size of comb I need to use. My only down side is that my older binding machine was easier to do the bindings with where this one is a little bit awkward, but none the less still works just fine. I recommend this product to all.

                        This product is one of the best I've ever had. I've used bigger, heavier machines, and this one works much better. It's ease of use is spectacular. I can see us using it for even more things than we originally planned.

                          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.
