It is working just fine. It is a little large, but it has to be to handle 13" x 19" paper. Glad that I bought it. I did not like the grid only being in mm and not in inches.

A solid product. Our old one lasted for 5 years and we bought this one because we needed a second one. Holds up to all sorts of wear and tear. Overall a great product. We were never that fond of the magnetic plastic arm that acts as a secondary holder of what you are cutting but it is easily removable.

So far it seems to be cutting well in the teacher's workroom at school. Arrived on time as described on web.

I read a lot of reviews of various trimmers, kept coming back to this one, glad I did. Very smooth, accurate, ideal for photo trimming, although I did try it on Canson and other art papers, results are great. One thing I did at the outset was to remove the hold down and using a fine file smooth the bottom edges and corners, slightly rounding them, and I don't see any marks or imprints on photo paper, which was one of the complaints I noticed in an earlier review. Overall an excellent tool that should last for quite a while.

With so many people searching for the perfect trimmer for office, art and crafting, I am surprised that a company has yet to produce one.Dahle has come very close to perfection with the 552. It cuts perfectly and effortlessly each time, even thicker materials.The trimmer, overall, is well-built, made to use, constructed to endure daily use. While it is very lightweight, it has enough mass to it to stay on the table during operation... I was expecting more heft.The grid and primary markings on this cutter are metric. They put an imperial rule on each end of the cutter. I'm all for an international system of measurement, but until that happens, if a company is going to sell an item to the US market, then put US measurements on it! And that is the bitter aftertaste for this product... if I am cutting short pieces of paper that don't reach the second rule, there's no way to tell if it's truly square... if I can find a large format cutter with an imperial grid, then this is going back, if not, it's still worth the price because of the cut quality.Dahle, make a US version of this cutter and you'll have a winner.Pros:* Unbeatable cutting operation* metal base* reasonably lightweight but sturdyCons:* It's all metric except for an imperial rule on each end... this would be great if I lived somewhere else.A US version at the same cost could put Rototrim at the bottom of the list... wise up Dahle -- it doesn't cost more to print a US grid on the metal plate... it is a shame a near perfect cutter has to lose a star over something so easy to fix.

I bought this for our marketing department where we trim paper, card stock and plastic laminate. This trimmer slices clean and the mechanism is silent (no squeaks or squeals). It's lightweight, yet sturdy. The two-way cutting blade is very handy vs. one-direction cutting. Reasonable price for a dandy tool.
