    I just received this and needed exactly one minute after unpacking to see that it is going back. This trimmer does not cut at a right angle, far from it. Even the grid painted on the surface is not parallel to the knife — so much so, that it is visible to the naked eye. I measured it with a carpenter’s square and the error over the full 12 inches of the knife is more than an eighth of an inch and actually closer to a quarter of an inch (see the photos). Laughably bad — even for a Chinese product this is a disaster. Useless.

    If you are someone who grocery shops with internet printable coupons and want to make your life easier, this thing is great. Great enough for that purpose that I gave it a star. I was using it to quickly cut stacks of coupons with little regard to how straight the cut was, as long as the barcode wasn’t being cut I was golden. I never noticed how crooked this thing was because I wasn’t trying that hard to line it up correctly.Now, fast forward almost a year since I’ve bought it, and I have a newborn whom I’ve got a ton of pictures of that I want to frame. I think to myself, “this thing is perfect! I should be able to easily get perfect straight lines to fit the frames exactly!” Thankfully I only printed 2 photos before I attempted to trim them to an exact size for a frame and quickly realized that this thing is not accurately aligned, and there appears to be no way to adjust it. The guard does easily pop off with little force, but that didn’t really get me anywhere. And of course, since I took so long to realize this problem, I’m well past the return window.I’m attaching a photo of a picture I cut with this trimmer. I put it on a black background so if you look at the edges you should be able to see that it cuts slightly off when lined up exactly straight. Its not a tremendous amount, but I’m finding it bothers me enough to make me not want to use it for photos – and also it bothered me enough to get on Amazon and write a review while holding a baby. If anyone has ever tried to do that before, they know how annoyed I am right now.
