This new one has been on for two hours, I have laminate at least 50 pages, and so far it's great!!! Hot enough to seal the first time through, love that it's wide so I can laminate file folders or scrapbook paper.
I was shocked that they sent me a replacement. I can tell already that this one will be great. The last one must have just been a fluke.
Side note...I only purchase the apache laminating pouches now. They work just as well as the expensive brands for a fraction of the cost!
In my project I want my cards to stand my little one's hands, I did laminate the card twice with 5 mil, or triple with 3 mil and it works.
Let me just say that I never expected anything from the company because the price of this product is really good for the quality I got. There was no way it is advertised that is for HEAVY USE so I kinda have an idea about how it might go but I am still positive. Yes, I needed it for a heavy use because you know "life of a teacher" really we need like 10 machines of the same kind. I originally gave it 3 stars because after only about 3 file folders, the quality would change and the machine needs to rest that's why.. However, TODAY I got a package that the company was sorry about this matter and gave me a new and a better version (which I am sure that it is also more expensive too!) OMG! You guys don't need to be sorry because it is a very affordable machine and really thankful for a the new one! I love it soooo much!!!!!!! Best Birthday gift ever as a teacher!!! Thank you thank you!!!!!! :)
However, because the orders are placed through Amazon which is not effected, and are also shipped from an Amazon Shipment Centers in the United States and eliminates any cause for concern concerning shipments. The only area that is effected by Hurricane Maria, is the "Call Center" which makes it appear that SPN Performance are being unresponsive, when the fact is they are not; which compelled me to set the record straight. Therefore, when I was finally able to reach Customer Service, even though it was my "over use" of a unit that was not designed for professional use, and Customer Service was very accommodating in this instance.
Therefore, to show my appreciation, I manage an online website that can be translated into 64 languages and is viewed locally, nationally and globally, and has received more than a million hits. Consequently, to show my appreciation in the only way that I knew to to try and help
SPN Performance to recoup some of the business that they may have lost through no fault of their own, I have placed SPN Performance on Line No.52, which displays all of the items in their online Amazon store.
It is my hope that by placing SPN Performance on my website, that it will help them to pick-up some of the loss that they may have incurred from the circumstances of Hurricane Maria, which was totally outside of and beyond their control, and will hopefully provide an additional vehicle to acquire new business to compensate for any business lost and/or that they may loose as a result of the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
But I can truly attest that SPN Performance does everything with its power to maintain great ethics and the highest level of integrity in the performance of their operations. But, if you are unable to reach them that is the reason, and trust that they will make you whole. But, as I stated I discovered in this instance compensated me although "we" were able to determined that I was using the machine for hours, and hours on end and had exceeded the functionality of a home unit; when I should have been using a professional model. The fault was mine
without realizing that I was over using the unit beyond its maximum capability and will suggest if possible SPN Performance may consider advertising the Apache professional Laminator on the same page.
I would buy this again for simple laminating, but it's only okay for an art room.
UPDATE: After my review the company contacted me offering to replace this unit with a better model to meet my needs. This was totally unnecessary and unexpected, but I really appreciate that kind of costumer service. I have changed my rating from 3 stars to 5 mainly because of the customer service. This laminator is a perfectly good, small-job, laminator and worth the price. Be advised it does not do cold-laminating if that matters to you.

Update: After a few weeks of use, the "ready" button is turning off halfway through laminating some of my sheets. When it does this, it does not do a tight seal around the paper and leaves bubbles around the edge instead.
