Rated 4 out of 5�by kimikimi Good value
These 5" binders are so much more economical than other similar products.
My only complaint is that one out of every five I have purchased (20%), the rings do not close clean. This means when turning a lot of pages at a time, handfuls will slip out and have to be threaded back onto the rings. The same thing happens when I take one of the faulty binders down from a shelf, the rings that don't close properly allow handfuls of pages to come lose when the binder hasn't even been opened yet.
Why do I still give it 4 stars? I put a little red dot sticker on the binders with the defective rings so I know to handle them carefully. Even if the 20% defective units were totally unusable (which they aren't - just need to handle carefully) the net price paid for the other 4 out of 5 is STILL better than comparable offerings.

Rated 5 out of 5�by Lina Easy to open
This was one of the best 5" binders we have purchased. It is easy to open and stays closed. The paper doesn't even seem to stick at the claws the way some of the other binders do. Great find!

Rated 2 out of 5�by MeMyselfandI Not worth the "savings"
For a HEAVY binder (one this big is going to be very heavy when full) this one isn't worth the cost "savings." I like that it's partially recycled content and was willing to give it a try - mostly because of that. We sent them back. We need a few of these every year and they must stand up to actual use. If you choose to move pages from front to back, the "rings" spring open. These are too irregular and flimsy.
Don't recommend in this particular size. (5")
