This 3-hole puncher gets the job done for light hole punching needs and for the price, it's a great value. With most 3-hole punchers, you can adjust the placement of the holes by "sliding" the punchers at your desired customized location. This one, however, provides fixed spots where you can't slide the punchers but must use one of the predefined holes. But I think this works better because you won't encounter the unwanted situation of a puncher moving to an incorrect location as is common among the slide-able punchers. Plus, how often do you use a 3-hole puncher for other than the standard 3 hole positions you find in a 3-ring binder? Also, this 3-hole puncher is very sturdy as the important parts are made out of metal and should last for a long time. The only complaint and the reason why I won't rate this 5-stars is that the punched holes are a bit closer to the edge of the paper than ideally desired. I measured the distance between the edge of the paper and where the hole starts to equal 5 to 6 milimeters (a little less than 1/4 inch).

Just got this and was a little disappointed because it is not easy to adjust. After years of hole-punching for scripts (3-holes on the side) and legal docs (2 holes at top), now most work has switched to electronic "paper." But sometimes when real paper is still required,a puncher comes in handy. I got this when I suddenly had to replace a reliable old solid metal 3-hole punch that finally wore out (after 30 years!)

PROS:
--Heavy enough to not slide around while punching. Not flimsy.
--Easily punches about 5-8 pieces of paper at a time.
--Price. $8 is a bargain...if it works.

CONS:
--Not easy to adjust. You have to unscrew and move the 3 screws on the bottom. I think they're plastic so if they break? that's it for the puncher.
--Holes a bit close to the edge of the paper, and there is no way to adjust that.
--Just partial metal construction - so far so good, but the rubbery plastic tray might get loose after a lot of use, and if just one of those screws breaks, then the whole puncher [haha, little pun there ;-p] won't work.

I've owned some tough to use paper punches. This Swingline Pro paper punch is so nice. It's the best paper punch I've ever owned.

Operation is smooth. At 10 pages (its maximum capacity), I have to work a little more to slide the paper in. I can feel a little more force is needed to punch, but just putting my weight on it works. It's not a struggle. Smaller stacks of paper (about six pages) will punch without any effort at all.

The chip tray keeps everything neat. It slides open for a quick dump over the wastepaper basket. I don't have confetti flying everywhere.

The punch heads are replaceable and they can be moved into a variety of positions. I can even turn it into a two-hole punch or a one-hole punch. Moving or removing the punch heads requires the use of a screwdriver, so it's not something I'd want to do constantly; but it's not difficult to do.

This paper punch is sturdy, attractive, compact, does what I need it to do with ease. I love it.

It does what it does.
Feel like it's pretty heavy and it does punch a bit too close to the edge of the paper.
Decent for the price though.

It does the job adequately, with few minor issues. I find the rubber bottom slips off occasionally spilling the contents all over. There is no leeway with the 10 page limit. Do not try to punch 11 pages! I would prefer something a little more heavy duty, but for the occasional hole punching this would work just fine.

Granted, this isn't for punching holes in thick stacks of paper, but I wouldn't take a star off for that. For light-duty (like 1 - 8 pieces of paper - which is what I wanted it for) I think it is perfect! It is very sturdy and punches clean. Easy to empty and is even adjustable should you want to punch 2 holes or 3 holes spaced differently. For general home use, it's the best punch for the money I have ever owned. If this sounds like what you want to use a 3-hole punch for, then I highly recommend it.

I bought this three-hole punch to use in my classroom over a year ago and haven't had any problems with it. I really like the rubber bottom that comes off and makes it easy to dispose of the confetti. The only major drawback is that it's only designed to punch about ten pages of paper at a time, so if you have a major project to get punched it can take awhile to do. Other than that, it's a fine three-hole punch.

I ordered this on Thursday the 5th, via Amazon Prime, and got it today, Saturday the 7th, 2015.

Frankly, I figured at this bargain price, the unit was probably on the flimsy side. Wrong! It's heavy, with equally heavy-duty steel fittings on all of the stress points.

I tried it out on three sheets of paper at a time and it cuts like a dream. I then tried out my newly punched pages on two different loose-leaf binders, each made by a different company. The pages fit perfectly.

When unpacking the unit, there is a green plastic block (for shipping purposes), which locks the moving parts and which must be pried out. This took a minute or so of prying with a screwdriver.

I haven't tried to adjust the hole-spacing but I gather that you remove three heavy slotted screws (which I believe are black anodized steel), and slide the three punch anvils by individually nudging them to the desired position holes, where the screws can then be re-inserted.

There are no distance markings for the mounting holes, but inserting a sheet of paper with the desired hole-spacing will serve as an adjustment template. It looks clumsy, but strait forward.

One reviewer commented that the holes are a little too close to the paper edge. I'm inclined to agree, but I doubt that the spacing, about 3/16 of an inch or 5mm (they looked exactly even with both Metric and Imperial rulers), will not tear at the binder rings easily, and it wastes less space for text.

I have a hand-held paper punch (the kind that looks like pliers). It worked fine but getting each hole correctly placed was tedious and error prone. Had I known how affordable and well made this was, I would have bought one years ago.
