I had bought the QEP model for $8 less which was much sturdier - but it was filthy and the ruler was missing (why not check stuff that has been brought back before replacing it on the shelf?) so I returned it as was. Not sure how the Rubi will handle my 19" floor tiles as it was bending just with the 12 inch wall tiles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent review and critic Pros: -The main selling point of this one is price, its only $44 bucks. Will cut up to 20 inch tiles, tried this first hand. -Will cut 3/8" porcelain floor tiles. -Straight cuts Cons and Critics: -Rails tend to bow at center, with some custom modifications and voiding the warranty you can replace the rails with some more sturdy material, ie. solid steel rails instead of the hollow ones they give, I believe home depot sells these too :) -Made 10 perfect cuts through 3/8" porcelain floor tiles, though perfect cuts, ONLY 10. I ended up exchanging for a new one and returning after I finished the project. *Major critic here: the cutting tip though great lacks durability, the blade axial broke off after 10 cuts. For the manufacturer, you have 2 options to fix this" 1) Contact the engineers and have the wheel axial redesigned and tell them to pay attention to the Young's Modulus of the material. -or- 2) Ship with a package of cutting tips, this should also be more profitable as you could also market cutting tips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with glass tile I don't know why this product has so many bad reviews. I just did my first backsplash project using glass tile and this product worked great. Instructions are pretty straight forward, if you have issues just watch the video on it. All you have to do is place your tile and flush it against the red bumper. With your one hand, lift up the scoring pin and use your other hand to loosen or tighten the handle ( the handle screws in and out so you can adjust the scoring pin-righty tighty, lefty loosey). with slight pressure, score the pin across the tile. Once that's done, untighten the pin out of the way, position the snapper piece(the winged metal) at the center tile then quickly push down on the handle to snap it. You might need to score it a few times if it doesn't snap. This only does straight lines. I Have not done porcelain or ceramic but worked great with glass tile. Hope this helped. Also, the price is great. Would recommend for DIYers, not for professionals who do jobs on the regular.

Tool did the job once you figured out how to assemble it (no instructions), and experienced its quirks of operation. When you pre-align your cut line to wheel everything looks good, then when you bear down to scribe the tile the cutting wheel moves sideways about a quarter of an inch off the line. This is probably due to the flimsiness of the tool. If you figure this error into your pre-align, you can scribe the tile where you want.

I was cutting 1'x2' porcelain tile and bought this to finish the job. I used it to cut about 3 tiles and every one of the cuts broke the corners. The cutting wheel on this is too small to cut porcelain and the construction isn't the best. Might be ok for softer tile.

The only reason I don’t give it a 5 star is because the little paper with 3 drawings included in the box does not qualify as instructions on how to use the cutter. First time cutting tile, so I had to look on my own for help.
