I bought a desk tape dispenser and after being amazed by it, I've ordered one of these in the hope that it's also a revelation.

Dispatched in 4-6 weeks from Amazon.

ordered one of these a while back, not very sturdy the screws fall out through using it. The tear teeth aren't very good at cutting either. Certainly doesn't live up to its name, 5 Star.

Just remembered I have 2 of the same item and both are useless.

They sell something very similar in Home Bargains for the same sort of money.

Good deal. Well spotted but 4-6 weeks dispatch is very slow.

It's in stock for about £1 more on your link.

thanks for feedback above... I was going to buy - but long delivery time and poor teeth/build quality means I've not.
Thanks :-)

This has just given me flashbacks to student holidays working in a packing factory in Daventry! Must have gone through 5 rolls of tape a day putting bits of Land Rovers into boxes. They are the daddy though and the adjustable brake is v.important ;-)

this is the same as the 1 in 99p shop i brought one it does th job nicely

I used these at work... You don't realise how good they are til they pack in.

hold up, NECTAR points? how?

Maybe go to the Nectar site and have a look ?

FYI, I've only ever had 1 Amazon purchase track through Nectar.

I'm not new to using affiliate links and I know how they work and I always go to Amazon through Nectar until recently when I gave up because nothing "tracks" as such. I have tried clearing cookies etc first but still no luck, I know it can take up to 30 days but I've maybe made about 30 Amazon purchases this year so far and only 1 has worked (when I ordered a printer).

Waste of time IMO.

That is most likely an "equivalent"...i.e a cheapo brand load of rubbish.

5 Star Office is a top notch brand, if you buy from amazon that is what you will get.

I think you've been unlucky abx, all my Nectar points at Amazon have been added no problem. Maybe it's your browser? I use Firefox.

why is it £3.38?

Thanks. Just ordered. Go to the right hand side 'More Buying Choices' box and select the Amazon.co.uk add to basket option to get the £2.59 option.

damnit i bought a 3m one for 7 quid about a year ago and have barely used it, should i go to small claims court or similar, as this is clearly a civil injustice????

MmMd

You can actually by smooth tape that doesn't jerk or hardly makes a noise, i know these things as we had a tape man in work when ordering signwrittin tape, as this was an optional extra, learn something new everyday LOL

oh as mentioned i have seen these tape guns in 99p or poundworld

Surely that's an Oxymoron.

Great deal - thank you !
