Someone in my HS group recommended this one. I'm considering getting one, but money's tight until the other house is sold. I've got plenty of time to look around. Anyone have one they'd recommend? I'd mostly like to use it for large things like posters, which this one won't do. It only goes up to 9 inches. I'll probably either skip the laminator entirely or pay to use one locally at a toy exchange library or something.
I have that one, I use it to laminate small things since it doesn't do the big ones. It works great though. My dh has used it a few times as well. I recently used it to make some chore cards for my girls. I also use it to laminate manipulative that are cardstock, ie flash cards and what not.
I didn't realize they were so affordable! This will go on my wish list now!

We have a Duck Laminator that we purchased several years ago at Walmart. It uses pouches that come in a variety of sizes. I like it because it seals the items in the pouch well and lasts a long time. I have never had a problem with it. An added plus is that I have been able to use other brands of pouches on it with no trouble.
Hubby bought me a second one about two years ago from Target called a GBC Creative Laminator. I disliked the one from Target, it did not seal the pouches well and later they would curl up.
In my opinion the Duck Laminator is the best one I have used. Unfortunately, Walmart no longer carries them since now selling the Scotch brand. I haven't tried the Scotch Laminator, so I can't offer my opinion on it.
We use our Duck Laminator for many uses:
File folder games and pieces
Flannel board characters and pieces
Calendar Math area
Decorations for bulletin board
