If you want the best of both worlds, you (that is, me) have three alternatives: 1) use a "disc" system like Levenger's Circa or Staples's Arc, 2) use a spiral- or comb-binding system and build your own notebooks, or 3) use the Five Star Flex Hybrid NoteBinder.
I actually have a spriral-binding system, and it works pretty well, but it's expensive and less flexible. The disc systems look nice but you have less flexibility (buy a $40 punch, and lose out on all the three-ring accessories out there).
So. Mead. The Flex Hybrid is the best choice, but it's not perfect. A notebook's gotta know its limitations.
You've got the flexibility and simplicity of a three-ring binder: Paper choices, ease of using a standard hole punch to put anything in it, simple archiving into standard three-ring binders, and lots of accessories if you're that type.
And you've got the flip-the-cover-around ease of a spiral notebook. (I've seen some comments like, "Oh, please, that's not important. But we all know it is, don't we. Else we wouldn't be here.)
So where does it fall short? A few small ways, but worth noting.
The cover is cheap plastic and feels that way. Great for a schoolkid for sure, but you won't be dazzling anyone in an office. (Then again, I don't care about that. You might.)
The bigger issue is the ring system. (I'll post a photo here if I can.Read more ›
If the above hasn't scared you away, this is a pretty practical way to combine multiple things into one. Because the D-rings are not metal and the fabric spine is not fixed material (that's what enables it to be convertible like a notepad), you have a lighter, more flexible (material wise) binder-notepad.
The whole thing is about 11.5 by 11 inches, and it comes pre-assembled with the following goodies (all are removable):
a) two open-faced semi-see-through pocket-sheets with a smaller closable mini-pocket (think envelope size) on the bottom (closable but not sealed, smaller things (eg business cards) may fall out). Regular paper is held in place by the pocket on the bottom and a top left side protector. With these, roughly the top half of the papers you put it are exposed on the front side
b) three semi-see-through plastic sheets that protect the paper on both sides and has a mini-tab on top for closing them in
c) sixty sheets (120 pages) of college-ruled 3-hole punch blank paper to write on
d) twenty sheets (40 pages) of graph 3-hole punch blank paper to write on
e) sticker with five white write-on stickers to use in the five Tabs (or use your own paper)
The colorful paper on the front you see in the pictures can easily be removed (or torn off) and recycled.Read more ›
~As advertised, worked great as a notebook and binder and folder
~Very durable, I used mine for two years and is still holding up strong
~Holds a lot of paper
~Light and flexible, so doesn't weight my bag down or take up too much space in it
~Stickers don't stick at all to the plastic, though you can still customize with tape
~The paper is kind of hard to turn in the notebook (but is made easier if you lightly pull the page so that there is resistance where the paper meets the ring, and then you turn the page)
~Buying reinforced paper or those doughnut-shaped reinforcement labels are a requirement. Normal paper WILL get shredded at the holes (the former is more expensive, the latter is a bit time consuming, so pick your poison). Even the paper it comes with starts to get worn down near the holes pretty quickly
~I wasn't a fan of the "noteprotector" tabs that were provided (Instead of easily putting the paper in like a normal pocket, you kind of have to fit the paper perfectly into it, soI ended up not using them)
This is a pretty good product, though it still needs improvements. After a while you get used to knowing how to turn the pages with ease, and switching to reinforced paper made everything easier. And after a while it will acquire scuffs and marks, but it's nothing you can't live with.
All in all, it's exactly what I was looking for and gets the job done despite some annoying flaws. But I'd still purchase another one again, and would recommend to anyone who can live with the faults.
