To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this paper from Amazon at a clearance price. It was "open box", so your experience may be quite different than mine. I bought Hammermill Printer Paper several times in the past and can't say than I was ever really impressed by it.
The lot that I received is, as I say above, prone to curling. Not always causing paper jams, but this is the only paper that I do get jams. Put in a binder and I find it curling up all over the place. Pages curl into one another and everything is a mess. I am also a *little* disappointed with print sharpness. It is only *this* brand of paper that I have these issues.
I bought it initially as an add on to save me a trip to the store, but when I went back to but more, the price had shot up to a predatory level. For the price I found listed the 2nd time around, I'd have expected at least a big box of these packages. I'm always buying paper in person from now on, not worth the risk/hassle, and you don't really save much if any money anyways.
Showed up in a very loose cardboard box, all 5 reams were split open and had damaged sheets. Paper seems to be of good quality, and the undamaged sheets printed nicely, it just should have been packaged better and/or handled more carefully.
Tiny black microdot spots on this paper, not bright white, and rough texture. I won't buy this paper again. There is better quality recycled paper to be had. It's ok, but if you need to make a good copy, it's not great.
