Your first pass should be light; with this pass you're only making a track for the rest of the passes to follow. Don't try to cut through the material with one pass. You can't.
The next passes should get progressively deeper with you adding progressively more pressure each pass. The thickness of your material will determine the number of passes you make, but when you get a decently deep groove going you can then break the sheet at the score line. Simply align the score line over the edge of a table or use a pipe or dowel under the score line, and then smack down on the unsupported edge with sharp, solid hits until it breaks along the score line. Don't be Mohammad Ali about it, but be firm.
If you're left with any ridges or peaks on the edges (it happens, especially if you veered off the line a little here or there) you can easily block sand them down in a matter of seconds with some 150 grit sandpaper.
Used this way, this tool will cut straight, clean lines in just about any rigid plastic sheet medium you're working with.

UPDATE: I literally used a broom handle as a ruler for the straight line, scored the line ( 3 feet) on some solid white flat screen tv material, scored once, then snapped. Unless I have the ONE hyde cutter that works, you know, the MAGIC cutter, the negative reviews are absolutely making the product to difficult on themselves to use. I have used this thing with ease like 50 times...no issues,...then again i use it as intended and not a one sided scissor that can with a Gandalf touch, just smoothly cut right through stuff..
UPDATE #2 I just used this bad boy on 1/2 inch thick basketball backboard Poly-Acrylic glass...Scored about 10 swipes on the front, and for safety scored about the same on the other side,..put over my workbench and snapped my right hand and for arm while holding the table side with my left....took two quick try's because i sorta was shy the first attempt,..clean snap with almost ZERO bits to finger clean off!!! I would post photos but only have my chromebook right now to take pics,.. I will at least try and take post photos of the left overf pieces later to show proof of these things...I just was amazed at the negative comments on here by the pros that claim their tool knowledge and have to put some spin on this item that might lose sales due to lack of knowledge in using an item like this..no disrespect! I really would love to see updates by those individuals that go back and use the item properly so they can enjoy the ease of using this tool that not too many other tools can achieve, especially for the price range...thanks again to HYDE for a superior product!
