Overall, this is a great product which is very easy to recommend.
Robert J. Newell
It is very easy to use and the tape comes off of the dispenser very easily and then cutting it to the length you need is a snap.
Brian Koch
I would highly recommend this tape to everyone who has packaging or storage needs.

As a frequent shipper one thing that I learned in a hurry is you get what you pay for. I had my test runs with other econo-priced competitors. The end result is I was using more tape and still not getting a quality adhesive. Lesson learned. I've been with Scotch products ever since and have not looked back.

After testing Scotch's new Sure Start shipping tape I can easily say it has lived up to its billing. This product holds up well and meets the shipping specs of FedEx, UPS and the USPS. I like the idea of not hunting down where the tape begins and ends. At thirty eight yards, I'm sure a roll will go a long way in most households.

The jury is out on the comedic low noise, stealth like feature being promoted. I didn't see that much difference in overall noise levels from this product and the Scotch fiber tape that I currently use. I remain amused at that thought. Have we gotten that sensitive?

Overall, I find Scotch Sure Start Shipping Tape a quality product that will go the distance. Its easy to recommend this latest edition.

We've used a number of different brands of packing tape over the years and find this Scotch brand is by far the best. It adheres quickly (by just putting in place and rubbing over it with your hand), and most importantly it stays stuck!

We like the clear as we often use it over address labels which can be smeared, torn, or rained on if not protected. The 2 inch width closes cartons or mailing envelopes more securely than a narrower tape. If you're closing a box we'd recommend going a good two inches over each side to be safe.

The dispenser allows easy use and the serrated cut off is sharp enough so there is no pulling or tearing. Very happy with Scotch Packaging Tape!

Began using the Scotch Sure Start Shipping Tape w/ Dispenser immediately after delivery and the dispenser worked flawlessly - of course the tape does its job also. However, the point of the dispenser is to enable the taping of box seams which can be done with one hand as the other is keeping the two cardboard ends together. I've no doubt others may find different uses for this product but for my intended use it's perfect.

I like this package tape it is almost 2 inches wide, thus wide enough to cover well were the box ends meet, and comes off the roll easy. ***DO NOT LET CHILDREN UNDER 12 USE THIS*** Why 4 stars because the red plastice guide has a very sharp metal edge for cutting the tape. It is easy to cut your finger ( I cut mine). So be carelful when using. I would still buy this again, but be more careful when using.

Most people probably don't notice or care about the noise a roll of packing tape can make. It can startle a sleeping dog or even wake up an irritated spouse. I do occasional shipping of Ebay stuff and sometimes get the packages ready while Mrs. Spudman is napping. It is during those times that I hear firsthand the raucous cacophony of intrusive noise coming from a cheap tape reel. It's as loud and irritating as sharp fingernails scraping a chalkboard in the middle of the night.

This new Scotch Shipping Packaging tape is terrific. It glides from the reel as silently as a shark in the ocean's depths and sticks firmly to its intended target. After sealing a few boxes I'm impressed by the smoothness of application and the firm adhesive qualities of this tape. I'm a believer. I'm a believer. Yes, I am.

Without question, choosing a shipping tape when you need to send a package should not have to be rocket science. All one really needs is a reliable product that is easy to use and of good quality. The Scotch Sure Start Shipping Packaging Tape certainly fills the bill on all counts. The tape secures my packages nicely & the dispenser is absolutely no trouble at all. It's also the easiest tape I ever used when it comes to finding the edge of the tape when you need to proceed to your next mailing, when & if you do manage to lose the edge of the tape (this happens rarely, as the simple & effective design of the dispenser keeps the edge of the tape in place near the cutting teeth virually all of the time.) I mail packages to family & friends around the country & even as far away as Austrailia quite often, so I appreciate a packing tape I can rely on. This Scotch Sure Start Shipping Packaging Tape certainly does the trick!

Leave it to the adhesive masters at 3M to come up with a solution to a common annoyance -- noisy packing tape. This impacts me more than the average person because this particular sound grates on me and causes the painful sensation most people think of when they hear nails on a chalkboard. Sure Start Tape solves the problem with a smooth, no-fuss, no-noise unravel that doesn't stick to everything (except the box) while you're unrolling it. It's what shipping tape should have been all along, frankly.

As for the dispenser, it's nothing fancy, but it should be enough to get the job done. You simply pull a paper tag off the edge to expose the serrated blade which is just sharp enough to cut the tape but not so sharp as to easily cut yourself. Still, you'll want to keep it away from small children. My only complaint is there doesn't seem to be anywhere we can grip the dispenser that won't also grip the sides of the tape, making the unraveling difficult. You may end up pulling the tape out by hand, then using the blade to cut or just transferring the entire roll to a tape gun.

The tape itself seems to be slightly less sticky than standard shipping tape but it has no problem staying attached to standard cardboard boxes and envelopes. Scotch has made a convert out of me and I'll use this type of tape in the future.
