Circa Dimensions Notebook Letter
I have bought at least 10 of these, mostly on sale. The paper quality is incredible and really addictive; love the aluminum discs, and the lightweight cover means this is my go to notebook, especially when I travel. I love Circa leather notebooks, but you can't beat the weight on this one. Only small issue is the flexibility of the cover, but that is the trade off for the light weight.

Circa Dimensions Notebook
I like the Circa Dimensions Notebook because it is a reasonably priced notebook for every day use. I have 4 different projects for which I use these notebooks (I do not want to spend $100 or more for a leather notebook). The only drawback is the Circa discs with which it comes are too small. I have replaced the 0.5 inch with 1.0 inch Circa discs.

Just what I needed!
This cover is perfect for work: I wanted something light weight, durable, and impersonal. I use it to track the progress of multiple projects. Based on another review I added a basic circa cover to the back to increase stability and find that it works just fine. I'm not sure it's necessary though because the paper itself adds stability. No problems with fingerprints or anything else. I save the fancy leather covers for personal use and this one keeps my work life in order. Thanks for the option!

still looks great
I purchased this over a year ago, and use it just about every day. It look great. Then -- I do love the circa system.

Just What I Was Looking For
This was exactly what I wanted. A lightweight cover with the feel of a nice, spiral notebook, yet it works like a Circa product. Love it.

metal discs awesome, cover....meh.
The cover is annoyingly floppy. However, I'm an animation/design student. I found some scrap matte board, cut it to size, and taped it to the interior of the back cover (pictured). A classy solution? Maybe not. But it works, and hard to see unless someone's looking. And frankly, if they're looking, they've probably got bigger problems than floppy notebook covers.
I like the carbon-ish cover design, which is sleeker than the frosted covers in the sampler kit, and easier to manage than my bookcloth cover.
The metal discs were the primary reason I bought this over a cheaper Circa notebook, and I love them. I also purchased some 1 inch metal discs for my regular class notebook.

This item is unacceptable and I am surprised that Levenger offers it. It is flimsy and the perforated edge does not hold grip the rings.
I am a regular Levenger customer and this is the first time I have ever found one of their products to be unacceptable because of poor quality.
I would avoid this product.

Cover shows fingerprints EASILY
I have been a Circa user for over a decade. I have always preferred letter size for a master notebook to include print outs. However, as a road warrior I have always struggled with the girth of the leather notebooks and found the frosted plastic "below" what I would want to bring to a customer meeting. I ordered this because of the "Sleek" appeal. While it meets that criteria, I found that the cover very quickly shows fingerprints and loses the professional appeal. Like the previous reviewer, I like the metal rings and will find a way to re-use the assets in another way.

I am a big fan of Circa and this is now my favorite Circa notebook. The thin cover and 3/4" aluminum discs allow for the space I need without the bulk I do not want. The cover has held up during normal use and looks great.

Looks good, but....
Just got this a few days ago, it arrived on time (as expected), the paper is great (as expected), the aluminum discs are very nice looking, the cover looks great, it fits into my briefcase very well.
My big disappointment is the cover is flimsy. While it looks great, all writing has to be done on a desk or other hard surface. I was expecting a more rigid cover that would help support the paper as write. With this cover, writing "off-desk" is like having a pile of paper in your hand.
I am going to keep this for the rings and paper...not sure what i'm going to do about the cover...
