Circa 123 Portable Punch
Great on-the-go punch
I bought this punch as a second punch to keep at my office. It is absolutely perfect for this as I can now happily punch the one or two things a day I need to add to my book instead of collecting them to punch at home. I don't think I could ever use this as my only punch, but for my purposes it is perfect. I also love how lightweight and compact the punch is - it will be perfect for travel as well. Highly recommended.

Pretty Good Little Gadget
Has a solid quality and weight to it. Worked really well. Great item to buy if you're on a budget or a need a travel tool. It's timely to punch only one sheet at a time, and the three separate sections to press down is annoying. But I am very happy with this product and have zero regrets buying it!

Good for Limited Use
It worked as I anticipated based on the description. This is a good value for punching just a few pages at a time. It is light weight for transport.

One or Two Sheets ONLY
Only for one or two sheets only, and tricky at that. If you wanted something in your glove compartment, or to take on the airplane, this would be it.

Not worth it - buy the 6 punch
I should start by saying that when I purchased this, I could swear that I read it was made to punch up to 3 sheets at one time. I see now the description says 1 sheet. I never would have purchased it if I saw that.
Quality: I understand plastic makes for a lightweight travel option (one of the reasons I bought this), but this is terrible quality. Part of this actually broke while trying to punch three sheets of regular print paper (the cheap, thin, recycled kind). This is not the quality I've grown to expect from Levenger.
Design: It's broken down into three different punching sections. So not only do you need to punch ONE page at a time, but now you need to punch each page THREE TIMES if you're using letter sized paper! There's no way to lock them together - you have to press each of the three sections down to punch the full page. This makes no sense. It has a sizer, and the other punches don't have this. Just terrible design.
This is the most inconvenient, poorly designed office tool I have ever purchased. Very disappointing to have this come from Levenger when everything else I've ever ordered (my professional and personal life are run on the circa system) has been top notch.

This punch serves my purposes well. I use my Circa Sliver Notebook that I purchased with this punch as a planner and it works great. I would not recommend using it as your main punch if you have more than a couple of pages to put holes in but with the few I punch it works perfectly.
Awesome, great quality item!

I am new to the Levenger products, but absolutely love this punch option. It is great, because it allows me to add my wall calendar to my portfolio and finally have a great way of having everything in one place. The punch is very small and light and travels easily due to the locked option. You can only punch a few pages at a time, but that isn't a bad thing for me. It works perfectly without any flaws and I would highly recommend it if you want to add notes from school, handouts from work or anything else you like to your portfolio.

Circa travel punch
This punch is lightweight and easy to use. I got this punch to use while I was out of the office and it works great for a couple of sheets at a time. For larger quantities I will continue to use the full size punch.

Great Travel Companion
I needed a lightweight holepuncher - and this fit the need perfectly. It holepunches perfectly on the go. I keep it at my desk as well and it fits the need - small where I can store it. Love it. Great purchase and product. Will buy the desk version for heavy duty punching soon!

This punch was the best deal I could find anyplace. I wanted to try the Circa system but did not have the cash to add a $80 punch to go with it. This punch will handle 1-2 papers at a time. No big deal. I am not working on stacks of papers. This little punch is sturdy though. I laminated a piece of card stock and not thinking tried to punch it as a half page checklist insert. It got stuck. Took me an hour of pushing on it and I could have sworn I was going to break it. It finally punched so I could pull it free. the punch is still perfect. :) so note to the wise. Dont try to use this to punch laminated sheets. Its tough though.
