"Did not realise this was for A5 paper size, maybe I should have read the details more closely. Would not but this size again as all my shredding is A4 so have to fold each piece. The cutting capacity (no. of sheets) is ambitious will not do the number recommended without a real struggle."
"Thinking about returning this item not fit for function. It has a useful handle on the top but no means of attaching the bin to the shredder head. So if you pick the shredder up by this handle the bin drops off and the shreddings are all over the floor. I am a slow learner so the hoover has been out three times.
More fundamentally the shredding mechanism is not self clearing and jams with compressed shreddings and has to be manually cleared.
"This shredder is perfect for home use, very easy to use just be careful you don't try to put too many papers through at one time or ithey will get stuck,easy to get out again though by reversing the blades."
"Reviewed this on Which came his on the best buys .I cannot fault it ... yes its not big but we do not shred loads. Its much easier to empty than my old one and I love the clear button , which gets rid of the last piece of paper . Yes you have to fole A4 in half but its really no problem . Its also sits on the desck so its really handy ."
"A good little shredder and doesn't take up a lot of space. The only downside which is not a major problem is that you have to fold A4 paper into A5 to get it in the shredder so doubles the amount of shredding you have to do. However I wouldn't change it for a bigger model as it does the job well."
"This is a great little desk shredder, ideal for shredding small amounts of paper. Although it says it is a cross shredder, it seemed to shred it so you could still read every word of the document so not good if shredding personal/bank information which is most people's reason for shredding things!!!"
