Rather use a pair of scissors than this product!

Comments about GBC SmartCut A400PRO Rotary Paper Trimmer:

I bought this so I could save time with my crafts, but it just makes it worse. The grid and ruler portion is supposed to make accurate measurements and cuts. When you align the paper at any of the inch markers, it'll leave excess paper on the side where the paper is being cut. If I want to cut a 5x7 sheet on paper, I don't want extra paper that I need to trim off again. Waste of money and time.

Does not cut a straight line at right angle to edge.

Comments about GBC SmartCut A400PRO Rotary Paper Trimmer:

Try as I might, I could not get this trimmer to trim a straight line. I'm also at a loss as to how this trimmer cannot cut @ 90 degrees to the top edge. A secondary complaint is you can't tell where the wheel will cut by the cutting guide. Everything is off.


Excellent Trimmer - Exceeds Expectations...

Comments about GBC SmartCut A400PRO Rotary Paper Trimmer:

My wife and I purchased this trimmer over a year ago for our business needs. We have cut over 10,000 pieces of 65 pound paper so far (three at a time) and will do many more in the future. The cuts are clean, the blades are easy to change and I just "rotated" the cutting mat for the first time. I thought I would have to replace the mat; however, the online manual said to turn it around 180degrees and continue using it. I did and the cuts are like the trimmer is new. Overall rating - a great product!


Clean and safe

Comments about GBC SmartCut A400PRO Rotary Paper Trimmer:

I was a little doubtful about a rotary paper cutter but I hated having the guillotine type around where there were children. The Smartcut get the job done accurately, safely and without any ragged edges. It cuts through card stock like a hot knife through butter. I would never go back to the other type and I would highly recommend this product for your home or office.

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.
