Rated 4 out of 5Â by HomeDIYer Speeds Up Wallpaper Removal
The PaperTiger perforates wallpaper and thereby enhances absorption of fluid. The blades are sharp when new, although the single head does mean you need to go over the same area a couple of times to produce a well perforated paper surface. Unfortunately, the design of the PaperTiger limits how close to the trim or wall edge you can perforate. The sharpness of the blades on the wheels does decrease somewhat with use. (I used the PaperTiger for wallpaper removal in 3 rooms.) Only light pressure should be used when using the device, as the blade tips can leave signficant holes (similar to those produced by pushpins) in soft materials like drywall. The PaperTiger is easy to use, and a large wall area can be perforated in a short period. The device is, however, a little pricey for what it offers.

Rated 2 out of 5 Pointless purchase
This product works fine, but it seems cheaply made. The inner workings squeak when using like scratching a chalk board. It is also easy to use too much pressure. I noticed the small holes I was making in my drywall. I suppose it is useful when using the DIF solution, but since I was very disappointed in the DIF and changed to using my steamer the paper tiger was completely unnecessary. The steamer worked great. I could have used the money I spent on the DIF and the paper tiger to treat myself to a meal in the time I saved by using my steamer.

I was perferating paint and wallpaper, so it required some pressure. When it was perferating, it did a great job except the terrible sound.
I went through 4 of these. Seems if you put any pressure on them, the bearings heat up and melt the clip which holds the cutters on. Luckily, I could cobble together 2 working ones from the 4 broken ones to finish my work.
They are inexpensive so, the value is still fair. Make sure you buy more than one of them. I plan on returning the broken ones for a refund it possible.

I wouldn't use this product unless there was no other option.
