This was my first experience with a carrier-free laminator. You have to run a cleaning card through the laminator at the end of each laminating job. Despite the use of the cleaning card, this machine still jammed. When I replaced the second unit the warranty people told me the cleaning card needed to be used repeatedly for large jobs (this is not in the instructions). It made no difference. Inevitably a laminate pouch goes in and nothing comes out the other end. I've replaced this machine twice over the past year. The third laminator didn't last two months. I'm switching back to a laminator that uses the carrier sleeves.
We are very happy with new GBC H425 Laminator which replaced a GBC unit which gave out after years of service. The product arrived quickly, well-packed, and in excellent condition. Directions easy to follow. As of yet we have only done thin laminate pouches but are very happy with results. We did learn that laminating crayon shavings is a really bad idea but fortunately did not ruin the device, but did cost us several pouches to clear out. We are looking forward to more ambitious projects with thicker pouches. So far, easy to use and easy to enjoy.
I use this for personal stuff and occasionally to help out with some office work. It is a little bit slower than I'd like to warm up and it does tend to produce an odor, but that's common for this type of product and technology. I print out recipes off the Internet and laminating them turns them into a permanent recipe card. It's also great for laminating those print yourself insurance cards and several other items. I was surprised at how many uses I actually found for it.
