Makes a horrible noise while going over the walls, but other than that, does
fairly well to aid in wallpaper removal.  
I bought this tool in '02, I had several paint contracts that year. A 5000sq ft
office building with paper borders, wallpaper in restrooms and kitchen, paper
from chair rail down in customer service areas, had to be painted. I admit, I
kind of panicked. The salesman at my paint supplier recommended this gadget. It
worked out great! A garden sprayer,wallpaper stripping solution,my Paper Tiger
and a 6" drywall taping knife(about 10 garbage bags)took me about 6-7 hours to
strip it all off, cleaning up the mess as I go. If not for the little Paper
Tiger I might still be peeling the face off, then spraying the underlying paper
backing and rolling that off a precious little at a time. Great time saver,
never once penetrated the paper covering on the drywall beneath.
My wife and I had some wallpaper and some border to strip so that we could
repaint a bedroom and bath.  In combination with a spray-on gel stripper, I used
this scoring tool to help with the job.  I found that it does a great job of
easily scoring the paper and the resulting holes do allow the stripper gel to
penetrate better.  If I had anything negative to say it is that in a lot of
cases this is unnecessary.  By doing side by side tests, I was able to get as
good of results by spraying the stripper onto un-scored border as I did when
using the "paper tiger."  In fact, at times the scored paper was more work to
remove because it tore into smaller pieces during removal.  I think this tool
will be great for removing heavy/commercial wallpaper or wallpaper that has been
painted over, but I also think that it is overkill for an awful lot of home use
