I didn't have high hopes for this product, it's from Walmart, is lightweight, and is expected to cut through sheets of paper with precision. However, my budget was tight and I was in need. I am very impressed with this product and would definitely reccomend this product for anyone that is looking for an inexpensive guillotine trimmer. I was afraid that because the product is so light weight that it would not stay put as I was trying to use it, but it was perfectly still. I was also afraid the blade would not be sharp enough to make the straight neat edges I needed but it is beyond sharp and made perfectly straight edges. The ruler at the top and midway down the trimmer helped me make accurate cuts. I'm sure there are far better high end trimmers but for my rare at home use this product is perfect.
