Strengths / Features:
Quasar-E binding machine offers a wonderful contemporary design that
allows users to fold the machine flat when it is not in use. The
combination of dark gray and silver used on the machine help it to
blend in with other office equipment such as desktop printers. It
includes a convenient push button punching control and an integrated
storage tray / spine measuring device.
machine is capable of punching up to twenty sheets of 20lb paper per
lift. That is a respectable punching capacity for an electric comb
binding punch. The twenty sheet punching capacity combined with the
convenient electric punching mechanism makes this machine an excellent
The comb opener on this machine is
capable of binding virtually any size of plastic comb available on the
market. It can be used with combs as small as 1/4" and as thick as 2".
It can open smaller 3/16" plastic combs. However, this machine is not
recommended for use with 3/16" combs since it does not have an
adjustable depth of punch margin control.
vertical punching slot and rotary side margin control make this machine
easy to use and set up. Documents can be aligned by simply drop the
pages into the slot and tapping them into place against the side margin
control. The push button punching control is then conveniently located
on the right hand side of the machine.
Weaknesses / Limitations:
Quasar E is capable of binding letter sized documents with both small
and large plastic combs. However, it is not designed for binding
documents that are shorter or longer than eleven inches. It can be
adjusted for use with oversize clear covers but it can not be used for
legal sized paper (24 holes), A4 size (21 holes) or half letter sized
documents (15 holes). Users who need to bind these different sized
documents will need to choose a machine that offers an open throat
design with disengageable punching pins.
storage tray on this machine is useful for measuring your documents and
measuring the size of spines that you have on hand. However, tray
doesn't hold enough combs to make it very useful. It would have been
better to use the space to make the chip tray larger instead of
offering storage for a few dozen combs.
this machine offers a stylish design that will fit well inside an
office environment, it is made primarily out of plastic. This should
not be a problem for most office environments. However, heavy users and
production environments should consider a more industrial machine with
all metal components.
Fellowes Quasar-E is an excellent choice for users who are looking to
purchase a full featured electric plastic comb binding machine for use
in a medium sized office.
It can bind both thin and thick documents using plastic combs and is exceptionally easy to use.
it is not a good choice for users who need to bind documents that are
longer or shorter than eleven inches. It is also not designed for high
volume production environments.
