Thsi is a decent trimmer for the price. One side folds in / out, so it is reasonably compact for storage. You can cut up to about 8 sheets of paper at once, or one piece of thin card. There are guidelines (align by eye) for cutting at specific angles (30,45,60 degrees). There is a safety feature that you push down to cut. This is decent enough for light hobby use. I don't think you cut trim 100s of sheets every day on it (the blade is much smaller than professional models), but for occassional use it is great, especially for the price.
