To begin with, I have personally used a variety of different laminators, which includes the toyuugo SL200. Few laminators, including Crenova, Akiles, Scotch Brand.The toyuugo SL200 is most simple and basic one, but useful.
Upon first glance, the toyuugo SL200 looks like a cheap piece of equipment. Looks aren’t everything though, so I decided to pick it up and get a feel for the machine.
Using the laminator is easy. Simply plug it in and turn it on. It about 3-5 minutes or so the laminator is completely warmed up and ready to go. A green indicator light will let you know when it is ready to be used.
In case you’re not familiar with laminating pouches, they come in 3, 5, 7 and 10 mil thicknesses. A mil is a thousandth of an inch (0.001″). The higher the mil thickness, the thicker the pouch. Most $100 laminators cannot handle anything thicker than 5 mils.
Another huge plus on the toyuugo SL200 is the ABS anti-jam button. In the even that you feed a pouch in crooked, or a jam occurs, you can switch the ABS button to release the jam. four screws can easily be removed on the cover to allow easy access to the inner components.
The motor in the SL200 is so quiet barely even notice it is on. This is ideal for office laminating situations. A person can easily use this laminator on their desk without annoying fellow employees.
This laminator is affordable enough for home use, yet durable enough for office use. I see no reason why you cannot use this laminator all day long. It is a good piece of machinery and I had a great experience using it.
