This replaced my old one, which I finally just threw in the trash. This Swingline has everything you might need in a desktop hole puncher. It's ergonomically designed, gives you a "hatch" to discard punches, indicates that the paper is straight, and even includes a name plate so the punch doesn't "walk away." Great price, too!

Everyone loves this 3-hole punch!
It is the best -- albeit, quite simple -- idea for aligning papers in a hole-punch, and everyone recognizes it. This is the one item that "disappears" most often, because someone is always appropriating it for themselves. We've started buying everybody their very own, because it is so popular. I would give it 10 stars, if that was an option.
I work in an office where this product is used many times during the day. The bottom "door" which opens to empty the dots broke from so much use. Perhaps there could be a better hinge, (metal) rather than just the plastic material which it's made out from. Continual opening causes that area to weaken and finally just break. It's too bad because I like the product otherwise.
