We bought this as we are tiling our bathroom. It is relatively easy to set and operate, but that where the pro’s end.

This doesn’t so much cut the tiles, but rips through them leaving chips, rough edges and lumps when it reaches the end of the tile. I’m pretty sure Attila the Hun made cleaner cuts than this does.

The design of the cutting guide means that it does not extend to the stated length, but is a couple of centimetres short. I’ve found that the water washes off any guidelines drawn on the surface of the tiles, so it is probably a good idea to scribe them. Also, as we are using tiles which are 31x62cm it is difficult to handle them and because our walls are irregular I have found that the guide is largely useless due to having to cut at angles

Care should be taken with measurements as the cutting disc chews out more than you would think. I triple check, but I have been caught out more than once.

It does make the job quicker, but I wish I’d gotten a decent quality manual cutter as this cutter isn’t as accurate as I would like.

Not good for cutting angles

Laying kitchen tiles in herringbone style so need to make many cuts at 45 degrees. The guide/runner is made of plastic and it's impossible to keep the tile in place as you push it through the saw. The plastic guide has too much movement and is flimsy. Very poor design.

Does what it says.

I bought this Friday to do a tiled floor in the kitchen. Having never tiled a floor before I thought this would help and yes it did. The water minimum is a bit confusing just make sure you put enough in so it just goes to the top of the black plug and put a cloth under incase you overspill. Also if you're doing this inside have a spare bucket so you can drip the tiles off and a cloth for the shards that come off. Good tool agree with the other reviewers.

Perfect for DIY

Purchased based on previous positive reviews. Works as intended and far less water mess that I have experienced with another model borrowed from a friend. Slightly concerned about the durability due to plastic construction but on the positive side no rust problems. I would recommend for the light duty DIY'er to complete tiling jobs around the house.

Good value for money

I bought this tile cutter on the weekend. This tile cutter let's you cut tiles without get in soaked, the case with other tile cutters I've borrowed from friends. It reduces mess as the water used too cool blade is in a compartment enclosed with the tile cutter. Pull a plug and the water drains away.

I didn't give 5 stars because of the fence, which I found too plasticky and difficult to slide along the table on the cutter. The end corners of this table are not 90 degrees so you can't fix the fence to the end.
