I had purchased a Swingline Binding Machine two years ago and thought it was a great machine. It was easy to operate (looked nice) but it failed me miserably when I was under pressure to put together a presentation for a Board Meeting. Very disappointed!! The presentations had to be stapled....! I decided to replace the Swingline with a Fellowes product because I have had good experiences with their products in the past. So far, the Pulsar+300 machine has performed extremely well. The cover folds down over the machine and stores very well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by RBFT Upgrade the Instructions!
As the machine is brand new - and my first binding machine - it is very much living up to expectations. I bought the machine to bind text books for the data-modeling technique I teach, and it will save me a lot of money over using three-ring binders. However, the included instructions required a lot of trial and error to get the first one right. I strongly suggest recording a YouTube video of someone using the machine correctly, and including a link in the instructions. I can see that the process is fairly hard to describe, but easy to demonstrate. (For example, the instructions simply say "insert binding comb" but don't mention that there is right-side-up and Upside-down. A video would eliminate trial and error.)

Vertical alignment of pages helps keep the pages at correct position for punch. The machine is working as advertised. The electric punch is saving my arm a lot of work! I would like to see the "on" light visible while lid is closed, so I won't forget to turn it off.
