For some reason I thought it was going to be one of those big rolls but it's about half the size. That's fine though because I'm using it on small packages anyway. It is very strong tape and I like that it comes with the cutter so no more trying to tape and find scissors at the same time.

I really like this small roll because it fits easily in my small drawer; and it wraps packages very firmly. The dispenser works perfectly once you get the hang of it. You hold it by the rough edges near the cutter and it unrolls easily. When you cut it, don't apply even pressure, but do so at an angle so the starts at one edge or the other. I only wrap packages now and then so it is perfect for me. If you need to wrap a LOT of packages, Scotch makes larger rolls and you can buy them in sets of 3.

I only wish they sold the small rolls without the dispenser, it feels wasteful to get a new dispenser each time when I could be reusing the same one for several rolls before the cutter began to get dull.

In a nut shell this is a very thick tape. Before you purchase said tape, please for the love of all tapey goodness read the product dimension. The width is less than 2-inches. The length (entire roll of tape) is about 800 inches, so it is about 66-feet of tape. If you need wider or longer tape then move on to the next tape. Just close this chapter in your life. This tape isn't for you... move on.. move.. on. Don't look back.. just move on.

Anyways, when you use it you'll have that sense of security because it is so thick. I mean, really it is thick. The downside is that this tape isn't really sticky. You really have to press down to make sure that the tape is on the package. Sometimes the tape doesn't stick onto the cutter thingy. Would I recommend this tape in particular? Yeah, sure.. if you don't rarely need to use packing tape. There's other tape out there in this big bad world of ours that can do a better job.. and probably cheaper... plus there's this thing called a scissor to cut the tape off. There are different sizes of scissors like kid safety scissors, office kinds, kitchen ones, even ones that cut hedges. After cutting it off you just fold a little bit of tape over the roll to make sure it doesn't stick on the roll.

Who cares if this tape is loud when you use it? I don't. If I did then I wouldn't have bought this tape. I would've bought the scotch tape (or different brand) that sole purpose was to be silent tape/low noise tape. Or maybe have someone else physically do the taping for you. #FirstWorldProblems

TL;DR
I gave this 3/5 stars because it is tape. I don't love it or like it.. it is just okay. It didn't come with a unicorn or anything magical. It only did the job that it was intended to do.

There is not a whole lot you can say about packaging tape!

The reason I purchase the Scotch heavy duty tape is that it is quiet when using. I typically use tape at night when my kids are asleep and my office is right by there bed. I had other tape that made the loudest, most obnoxious noise when you are peeling the tape off the roll. Scotch tape is very quiet and the tape has excellent adhesive qualities.

This tape is perfect for my needs. I use it for taping labels to packages, taping bubble wrap envelopes shut, and taping boxes shut. I find that one line of tape on most boxes is sufficient which saves me money by having to use less tape. The roll is very easy to use, lasts a long time, and the tape is crystal clear.

The one thing I will say is that this tape makes a LOUD noise when pulling tape off the roll. It's so loud I can't use it at night because my office is near where my kids sleep and it wakes them up.

I have just thrown out half a roll of tape and the stupid red dispenser/cutter. It is by far the worst tape I have ever used (more like tried to use). The tape constantly tore and would not come off the roll evenly. Trying to get the tears off the roll to form an even piece is an exercise in futililty. I have used many 3M products before without any experience like this one. One identifying characteristic on this roll is the "Made in China" stamped on it. If I ever see this product and stamp again it is going back on the shelf. I finished the job using a roll of Duck EZ start which is advertised as "Frustration Free" and boy is it ever compared to this crap.

I ship a lot of eBay items and I have never had a problem with this tape coming loose or peeling off. Spend the extra money to protect your shipments.

I recommend buying additional tape in bulk and using this dispenser over and over.

I thought the idea of tape was pretty self explanatory, but I once made to mistake of buying an off brand and found that for some reason the tape stretched, making it like sticky Saran Wrap and awful to try to tear. Stick with the 3M.

This tape is fantastic very sticky and strong. Great for bundling up packages you need to ship even if the contents is very heavy. This tape is great because you can use less tape because it is so damn strong.

You can trust in Scotch and this is very good packing tape. If you do a lot of shipping, this may be a bit small for you. It will go fast if you do. But, if you only ship occasionally - then this product would be perfect.

strong, lacks some stickiness. they say its 20x stronger than regular tape. option: buy the cheaper stuff at less than 1/2 prices of this and use double tape.
