I don't have that exact model, but I have a Purple Cows Guillotine/Rotary trimmer. I have to say that I love the guillotine cutter and use it all the time but I never use the rotary trimmer. As a matter of fact, I dislike the rotary trimmer and never use it. It's awful. What I hate the most about it is the fact that you have to 'lock' the bar down every time you make a cut. Unlock it to remove the paper, and if you have to make multiple cuts, you have to do this every time you rotate the paper. Time consuming and annoying. There are two buttons you have to push down to lock, then pop up to unlock. If you DON'T lock the bar down, the rotary trimmer won't cut the paper properly.

IMO, guillotine trimmers are the best for smooth, even cuts. The blades never get dull because they are self sharpening and are super easy to use.
HTH.

I'm with Katarina on this one. I have a purple cow altho not the one you pictured and I love it. I don't use the rotary either and have taken it off and stored it. I get really smooth cuts with the guillotine part of it and use it constantly. I got mine at Costco a few years ago.

I was given an older model than this because the purchaser didn't like it. I gave it to a friend because it was too much trouble to try to get a nice cut. She gave it away also.

I also purchased their ultimate photo trimmer and gave it away also. I have stuck with my small fiskars guillotine trimmer for cards and photos.

I have that exact PC cutter. I love it. That's a good price. I paid about $57 for mine.
