Good machine Review by Galaxy E 500

I did tons of research on binding machines because this was a bug investment for my small nonprofit organization but it had been great. I wish the description would have said that the unit did not come with a power cord. We had to immediately get going on a project but had to run to get one first. The YouTube videos helped get us started and know we are binding with ease. Great machine.

Very Happy Review by Title Queen

I was pleasantly surprised at how well the machine works and is built. I was worried that it would be made of plastic and not hold up to the daily demand that we have of it. We have been using it for 4 weeks now and it is a great machine, it is quiet easy to use and works perfectly!!!. I would highly recommend this machine.

Fabulous binding machine Review by MrsLemley

So happy we've purchased this electric binding machine. We had a manual one, and this is by far so easy and efficient to use. Would definitely recommend to others.

Our previous binding machine was from a different manufacturer. It always worked, but when it broke, I shopped around for its replacement.
We found the Galaxy E500 and it looked sturdy enough to handle the kind of use our office would give it. It has far exceeded our expectations. On a comparable product, many of the parts were plastic. This machine is attractive, is easier to use than the "other" machine we had, looks nice and has the ability to remove the binding unit for efficiency to bind and punch at the same time.
We couldn't be happier!

Welcome to MyBinding video. Today we're looking at the Fellowes Galaxy E, an electric plastic comb binding system. Let's see just how simple it is to make a book with the Galaxy E. Once you've gathered your materials, you can make some selections at the top of the machine with the buttons according to the size of your project. Turn the machine on with the power button in the back, lift the lid, you're ready to go. Use the wheel on the left hand side to set the margin for the entire project. This keeps things consistent in punching in the right place. Align your papers and feed them into the slot of the throat on the back of the machine. Be sure to have everything jogged evenly and slid to the left against the margin control setting. The E of Galaxy E stands for electric. The button on the right hand side allows you to punch up to 20 sheets of 20lb paper per punch. When your covers and all your sheets inside are punched, it's time for binding. The Galaxy E can bind a project of up to 500 sheets of paper. There's a very handy comb size selection guide located inside the chip tray; use it to measure your book and make the best possible comb selection. Slip the plastic comb over the spine of the comb opener. Use the handle on the left to open the teeth of the comb. Be sure always to keep your teeth faced up and your project faced down; that way the project does not fall apart when in use. Simply thread your booklet over the teeth of the comb. The binding unit on the Galaxy E is removable This allows two people to work simultaneously, one to do the punching and one to do the binding. With all the teeth threaded through the project, close the comb with the handle. It's just that easy with the Fellowes Galaxy E 500.

Welcome to MyBinding video. Today we're looking at the Fellowes Galaxy E, an electric plastic comb binding system. Let's take a look at and review the features of the Galaxy E.
Like the entire line of Fellowes plastic comb binding machines, this machine offers a contemporary ergonomic design. The Galaxy E folds closed when not in use, allowing it to provide a neat and tidy appearance for your office. Buttons and knobs are intuitive, helpful, and right within reach. And it works well with A4, A5, letter, and cover size documents. Lift the lid and the rest of the features are in plain sight. A great selling feature of the Galaxy E is the removable binding tray. This allows two people to work on the same set of projects simultaneously, one to punch and one to bind.
The E of Galaxy E is electric, and this is a great selling point. Using standard 20lb paper weight, this machine can punch 25 sheets at a time. This really can allow you to get through larger projects in a hurry.
On comb selection, the Galaxy E has a built-in comb selection guide. Right in the front of the machine is a comb storage tray. Built into that are cut outs in which you can measure the size comb you need. You simply slide your entire project into the holes to see which size comb best fits your project. The comb opener mechanism is easy to use and fluid. There's a punch guide along the front which allows you to assure you're punching things consistently, as well as the side margin control knob. And for added convenience, there are step-by-step directions on how to punch and bind a book printed on the inside of the lid.
In terms of weaknesses, there are a couple. Although the Galaxy E has a great punching capacity and an electric punch, it is not an industrial grade machine. It is designed for the office environment. Users who need a production quality machine should consider a much larger, all metal machine with industrial-grade punching pins. The Galaxy E is limited in its ability to punch custom length documents and legal size sheets. And finally, the side margin control dial is workable, but flimsy. It takes a few trial and errors to get it down.
Overall, we love the Fellowes Galaxy E 500 machine. And for under 500 dollars, this would be a great bet if it fits your environment. For more demos and reviews of this product and many more, check out MyBinding.com.

Fellowes Galaxy-E Electric Comb Binding Machine Review

The Fellowes Galaxy-E is the largest electric binding machine offered by Fellowes. It is designed for frequent use in medium and large sized offices.  This machine offers an ergonomic design that is intended to blend in with other equipment inside of your office. It is the electric version of the Fellowes Galaxy manual plastic comb binding machine and it includes a high quality button activated electric punch and a heavy duty modular plastic comb opener.  Here are some of the strengths and weaknesses of the Fellowes Galaxy-E comb binding machine.

Strengths / Features:

  • The Galaxy-E offers an electric punch that can punch up to twenty five sheets of 20# paper at a time. The electric punching mechanism is activated by a push button control on the right side of the machine and is exceptionally easy to use. With a punching capacity of 25 sheets, this machine is comparable to far more expensive electric binding punches on the market.
  • Like the entire line of Fellowes plastic comb binding machines, this machine offers a contemporary ergonomic design. the Galaxy-E folds closed when it is not in use. This allows it to provide a neat and tidy appearance for your office. Most other electric plastic comb binding machines on the market have an industrial look that tends to stick out in a contemporary office environment.
  • The comb opening device included on this machine is removable. This means that you can use the comb opener while it is attached to the machine or it can be removed and used by a second operator to help increase productivity. One user can punch documents while another uses the comb opener to insert the pages onto the combs.
  • This machine has a storage tray that slides out of the right hand side of the machine. The storage tray provides a document sizing guide that allows users to select the correct size of spine for their documents.

Weaknesses / Limitations:

  • Although the Galaxy E has a great punching capacity and an electric punch it is not an industrial grade machine. This machine is designed for use within an office environment. Users who need a production quality machine should consider a larger all metal machine such as the GBC CombBind C800pro, Akiles CombMac 24E or DFG E Titan Comb. The larger alternatives offer metal construction, foot pedal operation and industrial grade punching pins.
  • This machine is limited in its ability to punch custom length documents and legal sized sheets. Users who need to bind document sizes other than half letter size, letter size or A4 size should really consider a machine with fully disengageable punching pins.
  • Although the storage tray on the Galaxy-E seems like it should be incredibly useful, it is actually too small to be useful. Most users will find that the storage tray is only large enough to hold a handful of combs. Considering the capacity of this machine, it would probably have been better for Fellowes to simply leave this feature off when they designed this machine.

Recommendation:

  • The Fellowes Galaxy E electric comb binding machine is an excellent choice for organizations that are looking for a high quality electric comb binding machine for their office.
  • This machine has a selling price of around $500 and includes a competitive set of features that make it an appealing choice in its class.
  • Extremely large offices, print shops, mail rooms and schools who do a lot of binding will probably find that this machine is too small for their needs. Instead, they should really consider a heavy duty, all metal, commercial grade comb binding machine. However, these machines come with a pricetag starting at about $1400 and are obviously a big step up in terms of cost.
  • Still, this is one of our favorite electric desktop comb binding machines for the money and is definitely a good choice for many users.
