This product works great...for awhile. Then breaks

By JenE

Comments about Swingline EasyView LightTouch Desktop Hole Punch:

I am on my THIRD Swingline 3-Hole punch in just UNDER 2 years. Each one has broken the SAME way. This last one I bought in January. I haven't even had it six months. It gets used ONCE a week to punch holes in papers to file . I do not punch more than 6 at a time, which is HALF of what the expected ability is. I was using it for a project tonight, punching 4 peices of construction paper at a time. After just 30 pages, It broke the same way the last two did. A ring around the third punch slips out and the punch gets stuck and won't go back up. Because the ring/clip is still stuck paritally in place it hinders the punch from moving. This is ridiculous that this is the third time this has happened to me. I am not overloading the punch, I am emptying the punch regularly.WHY does your product keep breaking? It works GREAT for 6 months then breaks without any warning.. Very disappointing. I will no longer buy your products.


Comfort & Ease of use! Best hole puncher I've used!

Comments about Swingline EasyView LightTouch Desktop Hole Punch:

I was very impressed with this hole puncher. Not only is it's sleek design easy on the eyes it's also very gentle on your wrist during use and doesn't get stuck like some other brands that I have used. This hole puncher is very sharp and precise when punching holes through several sheets of paper and this hole puncher is very sharp looking on my desk in my home office :) This hole puncher works perfect compared to other brands that I have used that look clunky, hurt my wrist and have dull blades that always left me stuck trying to tear out my paper from the hole puncher. Buy this hole puncher! You will not be disappointed!


Worth the buy!

Easy on your nails and knuckles

Comments about Swingline EasyView LightTouch Desktop Hole Punch:

The higher lever handle makes punching papers much easier, and you won't have the problem of your hand slipping off the punch and ending up with broken nails or bruised fingers. I handle a lot of chemically treated copies and laser printed pages so my skin dries out quickly. Putting on hand lotion can make my fingers a little slippery. Even so, I have never had a problem using this style of hole punch because my hands won't slip off the handle!

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.
