It is an electric version of the manual Pulsar 300 comb binding machine with virtually all of the same features.
machine has a distinctive and stylish contemporary look that is
designed to fit inside a small or medium sized office environment.
Strengths / Features:
Fellowes Pulsar E offers a sleek, smooth design that folds closed when
the machine is not in use. This makes it easy to store the machine and
helps the machine blend in with other office equipment inside your
organization. Since this machine has an electric punching mechanism, it
doesn't need a punching handle. This makes Pulsar-E even more compact
and makes it less obtrusive.
This machine offers a
slide out drawer that will hold plastic binding combs for easy
accessability. This slide out drawer also has a measuring device that
allows you to measure the size of the combs inside the drawer. The
measuring guide also allows you to select the correct size of comb for
your document or project.
This machine offers a
punching capacity of 15 sheets per punch. Although there are many
binding machines available on the market that can punch than the
Pulsar-E, for the price this is a very respectable punching capacity.
Plus, the electric punching mechanism allows you to increase
productivity in punching and binding your documents.
comb opener included on the Fellowes Pulsar Electric binding machine
uses metal hooks and metal fingers. When looking for a low end binding
machine, it is important to choose one with a metal comb opener. Comb
binding machines that use plastic comb openers will easily break
leaving the machine virtually useless.
Weaknesses / Limitations:
limitation of this machine is that the comb opener is only designed to
handle plastic combs up to 1-1/2" in diameter. Plastic comb binding
spines are available in sizes up to 2 inches. However, the Pulsar-E is
not compatible with 1-3/4" or 2" plastic binding combs. Organizations
that need to bind documents with these large thicknesses will really
need to consider a larger comb binding machine.
machine is designed for binding 8.5" x 11" letter size documents.
Although this is adequate for many organizations, this machine is not a
good fit for users who need to punch or bind other sheet sizes.
Companies who need to bind half letter sized sheets, legal sized
documents or A4 length documents will need to choose a binding machine
with disengageable punching pins.
binding machine is electric and offers a great design, it is important
to remember that it is still made primarily out of plastic. This unit
is designed for small and medium sized offices that do occasional
binding. High volume users really need to consider a larger, more
durable binding system with industrial metal components.

This machine offers a compact, sleek design that will blend into an office environment.
However, larger offices or higher volume users will most likely find this machine is too small to meet their needs.
It is also not a good choice for organizations that need to bind thick documents or custom sized sheets.
