This is a compact and light weight unit that can be tidied away easily after use. It has two heat settings - the first is for 2*75 micron (total 150 micron) and the second is for 2*125 micron (total 250 microns). There is also a setting if you buy cold (expensive) laminating pouches.
Some of the other laminators that I looked at only handled 150 micron pouches which is why I bought this brand.
The guides for the hot pouches coming out of the laminator at the back are a little flimsy. By the way, this machine does not require a 'carrier' to feed the pouches through.
It is a simple, inexpensive, no frills machine that I might use about 100 times a year. I'm happy with my purchase so far
