Contains It All: A Five Star Flex Hybrid Notebinder Review
Jan 9, 2010
Being a college student, I decided to give Mead's Five Star Flex Hybrid Notebinder a try. Since I received this Notebinder so late in the year I've yet to use it for school, however faced with a family emergency I was able to use it for organizing and keeping notes pertaining to the unplanned situation.
The Flex Hybrid Notebinder was created to stand up to a student's abuse. Plus, by combining the use of a notebook with a binder, the Notebinder becomes an amazing organizational tool. I was able to sort out important documents and store pictures or business cards in the NotePockets(tm). I used the NoteProtectors(tm) to store documents which provided a quick view of important information. While the notepad in the back provided a place to write notes which could later be reorganized within or between the NotePockets(tm) and NoteProtectors(tm) sleeves.
Being made of a flexible plastic material, the binder rings don't work like a normal binder. Each ring must be opened and closed separately. Opening the rings requires forcefully pulling each ring, then close by simply snapping back into place. This functionality isn't a problem, but does take more time to open and close when compared to a normal metal ring binder.
The family emergency I found myself in the middle of was complete chaos. Making sense of the situation was difficult, but Mead's Five Star Flex Hybrid Notebinder helped me organize important papers and work through one frustrating situation after another. I could have done it without the Notebinder, but it was a great help. If you are looking for a durable organizational tool for school or to make sense of a situation, Mead's Five Star Flex Hybrid Notebinder is worth the expense.
PROS: Durable construction Great organizational tool Flexible fabric binding allows for flipping cover over for minimal use of desk space
CONS: Binder rings open separately (not a big deal)
