Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ceez performed as advertised!
Used it to cut 17 x 17 inch ceramic tile. It worked like a charm. Easy to use, very clean cuts. I am the farthest thing from a handy man. I work with computers. This was my first attempt at laying tile and didn't want to invest too much money on tools I may only use once or twice. This tile cutter by rubi delivered on its promise! Very satisfied. I am posting an image of the cuts I made using it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TileNewbie Easy to use, but flimsy
I am not a professional tiler, and only needed a basic tile cutter for the occasional projects around the house. Considering the cost when I bought was less than $50, this fit the bill. However if you need to make many cuts for your project, or you will be cutting mosaic tiles, I would not recommend this cutter.
My project involved 2x2 tiles in 10' mosaic sheets. The cutter scored the tiles just fine, but snapping any tile beyond the first tile at the end was next to impossible as the base of the cutter is just stamped steal and flexed so that no leverage could be placed on the tile to be snapped, and the angle of the handle to the snapping tool is such that the handle drops below the rails when fully depressed to snap the tile.
I assume this cutter would work fine on other tiles as there is no need to be pushing the snapping portion in the middle of the base, but in mosaics, this cutter is not appropriate.

This tile cutter worked very well on small (4x4, 6x6, 8x8) tiles, but on anything larger, the tiles would not break cleanly from both ends. The bars on the tool would actually bend, instead of the tile breaking...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Works perfect every time
The only instructions I saw were printed on the box. I didn't need instructions. Once you get the handle adjusted correctly, everything works perfectly. I did not have one bad cut. This is a fast way to cut tile. Just a few seconds. This is a great tool. I almost bought a power tool. I am glad I got this instead. I bought a $30 jig saw for circular cuts. Make sure you pay the $10 for a diamond grit jig blade.

Works great. Just slip the cutter into the arm and twist the handle to secured it. There are no instructions other than what is on the outside of the box. Slipping the cutter in the arm is not on the box. It is very effective. Cuts smoothly and easily.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by realsh3 good value
The tile cutter base is a little flimsy but the cutter scores the tile very well for snapping. For the home owner it is a good deal.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rick It works, but...
Bought this cutter for a flooring project. Large tile 24"x24". Arrived well before the delivery date. It was in pieces in the box so I had to assemble. There were no instructions in the box so I just had to look at the picture on the box and figure it out, not sure if it was sent that way but that's how it arrived. I had to place some plywood on either side of the cutter to help support the tiles because the base was a little too narrow for one person to hold the tile in place and operate the cutter. The post that has the cutting wheel on it just slides into the cutter handle and has no way to secure it so becareful not to loose it. Scored the tile very well and easy. Up to this point the little issues I had mentioned were tolerable and manageable. The problem came when you go to 'snap' the scored tile. It would snap it cleanly up to the last 1/4"-3/4" of the far end of the tile. It would snap off the corners on both sides of the cut. I tried placing the handle in different positions along the tile to snap it but got the same results. Even tried scouring the tile from both sides in because it was only breaking the far end but still got the same results. Bottom line was it became too slow and too wasteful for my project so I went and rented a wet saw. If you only have a few tiles to cut and can hide the edges of the broken tile under baseboards or something then this may work for you, but consider the slightly more expensive $70 cutter because the base is better.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ups13 This product is for small jobs.
Easy to use. Only good for small tiles which was OK because I did back splash. A little hard to break them - have to use force. Easy storage. I like it but should have gotten the one that does bigger jobs..my error.
