It laminates quickly and is easy to use.

So far after a couple dozen uses it's worked great.

I was skeptical.. believe me! The price is THE CHEAPEST you'll ever find but it works BETTER than a $200 & $250 laminators I've had. They both had 4 rollers, temperature gage, reverse.. etc... but none of that is really necessary!

I've used this quite a bit and have never had a jam. The laminating pouches go right in without a carrier and they come out perfect every time. Never any wrinkles or bubbles.

I bought one for my sister because I was so happy! Absolute BEAUTY!!

With 4 kids in school, there always seem to be little things that come up where a laminator would be useful. I didn't want to spend much, and also didn't want a huge machine. My husband has a nice one at work, but sometimes projects need to be completed right away. I read the reviews and decided to give this machine a try. It is AWESOME! It heats up quickly (It does stink, but most laminators do), it sends a sheet through in less than a minute, and best of all...no wrinkles or bubbles and it seals completely. I would recommend this to anyone who just wants the ability to laminate occassionally. Not sure if it makes a difference, but I use Scotch thermal laminating pouches.

I got this laminator a week ago, and have used it to laminate dozen documents of different sizes- letter, legal and 11x17. It has performed flawlessly each time. Here are some observations:

PLUS:
13 inch width to accommodate extra wide artwork and documents
Excellent output
Ready in about 2 minutes for hot lamination (quick)
Price. Have not found anything even double this price for an extra wide laminator.

MINUS:
Not UL rated, Overheating a potential problem
Made of cheap plastic

I have over 200 pages to laminate, but do not feel comfortable doing so at a stretch on this machine as this tends to get very HOT after just few laminations. It may be true for other machines also, but this not being UL rated makes me feel unsafe, given few incidences of fire reported by some reviewers. I plan to keep it, but for light usage only.

UPDATE: 2/6/14. Still working fine. The price has gone up by 50% from what I paid (19.99).

In April 2012, I bought this laminator and made comment that it had been damaged (possibly in transit) when I'd received it. Although I explained that I chose to keep the product which is still running perfect, Cheetah Mounts of Pheonix AZ, went out of their way, (above and beyond their duties) in an attempt to rectify a problem, that I had explained to them, was not really a problem... it's a great laminator for home use! Light, portable and easy to use!
I hadn't been able to return their contact and had completely forgotten about them, when I got home from work today and found a parcel from Cheetah Mounts, containing a Heavy Duty Professional Laminator. I was shocked!!!
I want to send a huge THANK YOU to CHEETAH MOUNTS and their Customer Service Team! You are awesome and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to my friends and peers in the future! :)

I LOVE this product. Just like my little label maker, it has become a fun and easy way to stay organized and protect the things I want protected. Today I made bookmarks with the grandkids, this was a perfect craft accessory. So far, it has performed flawlessly. I took the advice of another review and purchased Scotch laminating pouches.
update: I used this laminator occasionally. It was wonderful to have on hand. One day, I turned it on and it never got hot - the heating element failed. So, unless I purchase cold laminating film, this laminator is now useless to me. I was unable to find any contact info for possible warranty. Mine lasted about 6 months with OCCASSIONAL use. I won't re-buy it.

My wife uses a lamination for her work (Speech Therapist) a lot and our old one died. I have been shopping for awhile for a good price and decided to give this a try for the price. She has used it for 2 weeks now and absolutely loves it. It works very well and is so much quieter than the older more expensive one that just died. So far no complaints and she has run about 100+ sheets through it.

What a great price for a great product. I'm using mine on the hot setting with the legal size pouches 5mil by royal sovereign, found inexpensively on Amazon, also. Very please. Odor someone mentioned is very minor, I believe most Hot laminators would do this. I do not use the carrier pouch that came with my R.S. laminating pouches, and this worked beautifully for the outdoor legal size posters I'm making for our upcoming 5k. I think every teacher or parent or crafter should have one of these!

I love this laminator! I have used it only on Hot with pouches purchased also from Amazon and it works so perfectly. My 7 yr old sat and ran her coloring pages through it while I put the papers in the pouches. It heats up in a short, and very reasonable amount of time. Feeds sheets quick enough. It's very much worth the price. It doesn't come with any laminating pouches, but it will use up to 8 mil pouches according to the included paper work. Nice and small and just a lot of fun!
