Another problem is that that you have to guess exactly where the blade will cut. There is just a trough where the blade cuts but it doesn't give you a precise spot so you have to learn with experience to get it about right. (Edit: see * below)
Another skill you must master, since the gridlines aren't very helpful, is to try to press it against the shallow plastic guides at the top edge, which are, thankfully, precise, but they only stick up a small fraction of an inch so you have to develop the talent of pressing the paper firmly against them (with some finger pressure from above) but gently so the paper doesn't jump over the guides.
(Not important, but I think the color is ugly. Sure I could see that in the photo, but it is the only compact one I could find that would cut a full 11" sheet.)
Bottom line, if you need a compact paper cutter for full size sheets and don't mind some training time at the beginning, this will do it for you.
UPDATE (8/9/13): Well, I'm still using this after all this time and decided to add a star because it does work well for me. I still can't vouch for the longevity though because I only use it occasionally (mostly to cut out shipping labels for Amazon returns :)
* I do want to add to the blade placement note I made above.Read more ›
A problem popped up after a couple of days' use. The orange plastic swinging arm the extends the width measurement, upon swinging out, tore up the pasted-on horizontal paper ruler! I fixed this by unscrewing the arm assembly (which has a washer, the only thing in this trimmer that is [probably] made of aluminum) and gluing the paper ruler back into place with a super strong glue. I hope that it works.
After all these, I became very upset and wonder who manufacture this. I turned it over and looked. It does not say who made it, but just said 'Made in China'.
I would return this produce. However, I have taken it abroad. So I just make do.
Let me put it this way - if it breaks, I'll likely buy this one again.
