Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clyde55 Easy Glass Cutter
I use this tool for glass cutting. I am a novice, so I like the fact that this tool makes it extremely easy to break the glass along the score line without having to use my hands or tap it with a conventional glass cutter handle. I ground the "anvil" down to get a sharper point. (Please see photo.) - ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY GLASSES WHEN CUTTING GLASS!

Decent cutter for the $$$. Making a good score is key to a clean cut.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by octdot Very good for cutting small mosaic tile
I used this tile cutter to cut octagon and dot tile I installed in my half bath. As other reviewers have mentioned, when scoring the tile you have to push with some force, but if done properly, the tile will snap right along the score line. This cutter works very well when there is an even amount of tile on both sides of the rubber "snapper", but doesn't work so well otherwise. For example, this tool did a very good job cutting the octagon pieces in half, or close to in half, but did poorly at making cuts close to or less than a third of the tile. However, based on the basic principle of this tool, that's to be expected, since it expects equal amounts of force on either side of the score line to snap the tile properly. Overall, at around $8, I think this is a great value, making is so I only had to use my wet saw on < 10 pieces of octagons with ~40sqft installed.

It broke the first pass over the first tile. Another Home Depot special.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by crummy Not for Porcelain tile
The cutting wheel worked fine for scoring the 12"x24" porcelain tile (12" cut to shorten the length)... But the first attempt at snapping the tile, the plastic bar that presses down each side immediately broke before even breaking the tile at the score. Not good at all for porcelain, but should work fine for ceramic. I had to place my porcelain tile on an uneven surface and step on both sides in order to get it to break. I've researched other cutters like this that have metal pieces to snap tile rather than the plastic on this one, which that would obviously solve the problem of the tool breaking on me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nikki Don't trust reviews! This worked better than anything else!
So after reading all the reviews about this tool breaking, I went and purchased a tile nipper for $20, a glass nipper (the one with two rollers) for $13, and a stone sanding block for $8. I began my project of installing glass mosaic tile. Both tools made the glass chip so bad, I had to buff them out and still wasn't perfect. It was time consuming and made a mess. Halfway through, I decided to go back to home depot and get this tool. OMG it's amazing!!!! As long as you score each piece in a straight line with pressure, you'll get near perfect cuts. The tool is cheap so if you're worried about it breaking (which it did not for me), buy two. Here is a photo of what took me literally 1 minute to cut 6 pieces. A MUST FOR MOSAIC GLASS TILES.
