        Extremely well made and use friendly. I print from Lightroom 5 and this makes it a snap to provide prints of the correct size and trimmed professionally.

          I love it! It is still the best on the market. Rototrim is the first and best name in paper trimmers. They live up to their reputation and exceed your expectations every time you use one of their products. I would highly highly recommend Rototrim for all your crafting or business needs.

                Comments about Rotatrim Mastercut 18" Rotary Cutter:

                I primarily use enhanced matte paper. In the past, I have used paper cutters that cut poorly and leave a white edges because it only takes off the top layer of the paper. I have also had guides slip or the paper slip as I am cutting. I have had none of those problems with this one.
                The only issue I have with this cutter is really just a user error. I have problems matching up where the edge of the photo is on the paper. So I have to try multiple times to get it right at the edge of the photo. This will get better with experience.

                    These are the best rotary cutters. Highly stable, beautiful lines, and very sharp. It glides well and unlike other cutters, allows you to take the smallest sliver off. I have used them in professional darkrooms and production studios, we have an old one at home, and this new one at my office does the job for in-house production of signs, photos, and presentation materials.

                          I bought this cutter to replace a smaller, older cutter and I am extremely happy with my choice of a Rotatrim cutter. I can now easily trim the large prints I get from My new 3880. The device is of extremely solid construction, cuts very cleanly, allows for easy measurement of the final cut, it stays put on the table when cutting and it stores very easily. I have only positive impressions of this unit, no negatives.

                              I selected this paper ccutter for use in a high school graphic design class. It cuts very well. It is heavy enough to prevent sliding while cutting. The parts are substantial and sturdy. I feel we have invested our money wisely. I am very pleased with this product.

                                  I've used cheap trimmers in the past, and was tired of the cheap construction and poor results. This trimmer is definately an investment at the price, but you really get what you pay for in this trimmer. VERY well built and perfect cuts every time.

                                    Right out of the box you can see that this is a quality machine. I tried it out and it is a pleasure to use. A note for buyers. The maximum cut of this 18" trimmer is indeed 18". If you are trimming 13" x 19" paper, you will need to trim the short end first to get it down to 18", then trim the long side. So this 18" trimmer is advertised accurately. For my needs this works perfectly, but if you need more space, get the next bigger size. I would also caution against getting the next smaller size unless you are 100% sure you will never cut 13" x 19" to 12" x 18" and then want to fine tune your trim.

                                          I was very disappointed with a well known brand paper cutter I was using. I was skeptical of buying a cutter at the price of the RotaTrim. The term "you get what you pay for" is an understatement when it comes to this product. Received the day after ordering (as usual) with B&H. Superb product, free shipping, great customer service...Thank you.

                                              I've been using this cutter to trim photos. So far, the cut is awesome! Only had this a few weeks, but according to others, this cutter can last many years at excellent performance. Happy I decided to upgrade to a professional cutter.

                                                Have only used this trimmer a few times so far to cut business cards and some 40 and 70lb paper. It has cut everything smoothly and accurately. It seems very durable, and I expect it will cut all of the paper, photos and cardstock my business needs it to for many years.

                                                    I needed a cutter to trim 10 mil laminated photographs made into bookmarks. No one reviewing seems to use it for trimming laminated items. This does the trim perfectly, without leaving hard or sharp edges. And the trims I've tried so far, basic and very fine all were exact and perfect. No slippage. No mis-cuts. Trims effortlessly.

                                                    I'm so impressed with the sturdiness and the quality construction. This will probably be the only trimmer I need unless I ever need to trim larger prints.

                                                    Thanks to the other reviewers for recommending the 18" over the 15". Gives room to expand sizes I trim in the future.

                                                        This is second RotaTrim cutter I have purchased, because I have always found them to be of high quality and they hold up well over time. I have never even had to replace the blade on my first one and I've had it for several years.

                                                          Over the years, I have used many other types of paper cutters. All of them would cut paper, but not accurately. Wish now that I had bought this one in the first place. Very accurate and easy to use.

                                                            I bought eight of these for my company's use. We don't trim a lot of prints, but I got these because they're sharp, flush, and accurate. Take care of it; most rotary trimmers deteriorate quickly when they're abused.

                                                                I use this to cut pictures to the right size. Very precise. I'm glad I bought it.
