Rapesco 90 4 Hole Punch - Black by Rapesco
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
This punch is a bit of a mixed bag: the build quality is perfectly satisfactory but not exceptional, in particular the bridge between the two halves of the punch is a little prone to twisting, meaning you need to stand it on a firm flat surface before punching - try it on a bed or sofa and the induced twist prevents the mechanism working properly. When punching towards the maximum number of sheets a reasonable amount of force is needed: not superhuman strength but possibly two hands, and of course this brings us back to needing a good firm surface when punching.

My biggest gripe is with the paper edge guide - this is held in place with a couple of flat springs that simply don't… Read more
HP Mouse - Optical - 3 Button(s) - Wired by HP
3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not great, 12 Jan 2013
Yes, it's a three button mouse and those are seemingly as rare as hen's teeth these days, but you knew that already, indeed it is probably why you are looking at this particular item, so I'm not going to delve too deeply into that.

The third real button and lack of scroll wheel aside, this isn't actually such a great mouse.

For a mid-priced mouse… Read more
Uni-ball Eye UB157 Rollerball Pen Fine 0.7mm Tip 0&hellip by Uni-Ball

These are great pens: they are accurate with no wobbles, and cheap enough that if you lose one occasionally it's no big deal. They write well merely resting on the paper, unlike ballpoints and even some other rollerballs that you must actively press in to the paper to make an impression causing writer's cramp. The "fine" line width is perhaps marginally thicker than I'd like but the ball is large enough to write smoothly, unlike the finer "micro" size I have always found to feel scratchy.

They're not quite perfect though. Cosmetically the design is a little too cluttered with printing and various labels, giving a slightly cheap appearence to the pen. This gets worse with use… Read more
