NOT Jam Free
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 21, 2019
My only recommendation to others is DO NOT BUY THIS PAPER. The information posted, plus the label on the reams states "99% Jam Free." It is anything but jam free. I have used printing/copy paper of many different weights in my laser printers for years, but never this particular brand and 20lb weight. Never before have I suffered with paper jams in the printers. This paper, I have suffered numerous jams on different laser printers. The last jam, I just cleaned out of the printer, which was so severe that I had to disassemble the printer insides to get it out. The paper sheet is so thin (cannot be 20lb!) it bunched up in a half-inch jam that it took well over an hour to disassemble the printer (using screwdriver), pry the paper bunch out using medical hemostats (the bunch broke into small chips when attempting to pull out of the mechanism), and then reassemble the printer. It was bunched up so tightly that it was impossible to pull out just by opening the printer covers. I replaced this paper with another brand 20 LB paper that I had very little left and printing is complete and smooth, no jams. This Hammermill paper has caused at least 8 - 10 jams, the last jam being the worst, the prior jams were pulled out by opening the printer covers. Only a quarter of the first ream has been used, but I am now stuck with 3 reams of paper that is not even good enough for toilet paper. I will NEVER, EVER buy Hammermill brand paper again.
