Rated 3 out of 5 by Gardenrose SOMEWHAT HELPFUL
Both rollers leaked black ink and had leaked by evidence when I opened the box. Cleaned off the outsides, but upon use still leaked; so the set is on it's way back for a replacement. I'm disappointed because I have a lot of junk mail to catch up on in removing personal info. and now have to wait longer. I agree with some other reviewers that these rollers do not cover every type of print, so recommend being diligent when using them, even on regular flat papers. On other documents, they did cover after several passes. I would recommend them to others as part of an overall help in safe guarding your personal information, as shredding is so time consuming and home shredders so inefficient, but don't rely on these for the only solution.
Rated 3 out of 5 by milyec Ok but not great!
I thought this would be a great idea for things I can not place in my shredder. For prescription labels, shipping labels, box labels, labels glued to plastic packaging that have my name on them. If it is just regular paper & if you don't have a shredder this would be great for you. But for shiny paper, shipping labels & prescription labels it doesn't do a good job. Yes it inks over your info but it lightly inks over most shiny labels & you can hold them up to the light & still read your information. Some of them I could read right thru the ink. You would be better off cutting these things up with sissors or burning them. I am returning.

The roller works pretty good on paper that has NO GLOSS to it. Does not do a thing for anything that has any type of gloss. Have not used the tape. Best way to protect your personal information is a cross cut shredder. Wish QVC had such a product that was affordable for household use.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Boston Initially I thought this was great, until.......
I had gone over a bank statement TWICE, happened to hold it a certain way towards the light, and could STILL read what I had just covered! I went over it again, same thing! QVC quality control needs to check this out !

This covers as much as a black marker would!!
I can read clearly what ever has been covered.
I am disappointed, QVC should test the item before putting it on sale to it's customers!!
Rated 1 out of 5 by Humbled Not worth it
I tried the larger one on quite a few pieces of paper and it wouldn't always roll and most of the time it didn't cover the information.
Rated 5 out of 5 by consumer3946 Great buy!
Our garage is full with bags of years of private info/mail/etc...that needs shredded, just to protect our personal info! Finally, a product that I can use to block out info and just throw it in the recycle-no problem!! No more waiting for "shred day" locally, that we've somehow missed the past few yrs! Lol I will say that I was surprised at the small camo tape because I didn't realize it was "tape" like white out tapes....I thought it was ink, like the big one. QVC does sell the refill tapes for the small one, but I don't know if the large one can be refilled at a local print shop or office store. This product works great, when it comes to medicine bottles, the large inked roller won't work...the labels are made of that slick paper, same goes for some junk mail....all depends what paper stock is used.
This product is for everyone, but below when asked who this product would be good for, QVC should have the option of "all the above".

These rollers and tape are a must have if you get mail or have any paper documents in your home that you need to protect. I keep one at my desk, near the recycle bin for box labels and one at work. (I also have extras because I never want to be without one)
