Mixed Feelings (01 November 2009)
I have been trying to find a replacement for my Kokuyo Tape Runner so I ordered a bunch of options including The Therm O Web Memory Tape Runner. So far, i'm not very impressed. First, I find the unit incredibly awkward. I don't like the cover that flips to the side and the prongs that hold the tape on the front feel wierd when you press down. It feels flimsy, yet if you don't press hard enough it doesn't work. It just doesn't feel comfortable. Also, for some reason I repeatedly pick the unit up upside down and end up marking up putting indentations in my photos with the prongs. Second, the adhesive doesn't feel as strong as I would like. I haven't had anything fall apart yet, but it just doesn't feel super strong. Maybe i'm spoiled by the super-strong Kokuyo adhesive but I think this runner probably won't be my replacement.
