Vitrex Manual Tile Cutter 400mm
You Get What You Pay For
If you need something for a one off job this would suffice, however I would not recommend for a novice. Pretty simple to use however after cutting aprox 30 nr. 330x330 floor tiles it feel apart in my hands, not sure if i was pressing to hard but the runners that keep the cutting wheel in place are extremely flimsy and bent far to easily. Screwfix gave a full refund.
On reflection it probably failed due to user error, as a novice i was probably pressing down to hard, and in fairness all the cuts made were perfectly straight.

I'm sure for thin 6" ceramics it's fine. Floor tiles, don't even bother. Flimsy and not a nice thing to use. Spend a little more and get a lot better.

great value for the price
bought this to replace an old tile cutter. For the price it performed very well. Don't understand gripes of other users as it cracked about 400 tiles perfectly so far.

Flimsy tile cutter
The cutter is really weak so flexes when you put pressure on it to snap the tiles. Managed to break more tiles than it actually cut.
Ended up having to return it after a couple of days.
I would recommend that screwfix remove this item from their catalogue.
If you must buy a tile cutter pay a little extra and get a better product.
