"Got this to replace a larger, floor-standing shredder that had started making a noise like an engine shaking itself apart. Didn't want another floor-standing shredder and this one sits on the dining room unit. Was a little concerned about the storage capacity but other than having to empty it a bit more frequently, this has not been a particular issue. All-in-all, a lovely little shredder that does its job quietly and efficiently."
"It's a small little Shredder and can only hold a few pieces of paper at a time, but it's perfect for our household with the little bits and pieces that we need it for. It won't be any good for loads but for general everyday few sheets it's perfect. It's also very easy to use and stores so nicely away. On the whole I'm very pleased."
"What I LIKE ABOUT THIS LITTLE SHREDDER IS IT IS SMALL ENOUGH TO HAVE ON MY DESKTOPwithin easy reach(I am badly disabled )a great feature is the forward power switch when used in conjunction with the reverse switch so unblocks cut paper that blocks up the cutters.I have improved mine with a carrying handle for the whole unit as the handle present only lifts the cutting heads out of the storage box.but a fabulouse shredder overall"
"I read the existing reviews and was a bit dubious about this product. Anyway I risked it and bought one. No problems so far and it works. You have to make sure its on its waste box properly and the microswitch that detects the paper is a bit uncertain.
You have to fold A4 in half to make it fit but I used to do that anyway with my previous machine. That one was always allowing the paper to slip sideways and jamming. No jams with this one yet.
"It's small so can be easily stored away, it's not too noisy. I don't think it would do 8 sheets and i found it was better to fold A4 sheets in half before putting in the shredder. Perfect for household use. You do have to empty it a lot because of it's size but i just put a pedal bin bag in it, which was the perfect fit."
"Very pleased with my shredder its small yet powerful neat yet strong and quiet. It shreds paper small enough to tip into my compost bin. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a home use shredder."
"I have unwanted paperwork dating back years, but this shredder seems to be enjoying chewing it all up. The motor has plenty of grunt, the size is perfect for leaving on top of the fridge freezer or for hiding in a cupboard. Seems to be quite happy chewing through thin card (single thickness) and a few A4 sheets folded in half as well. Noise level isn't too bad, with built in safety cut out and the ability to reverse if needed. Would recommend for general home use this is the perfect buy."
"Seems this unit is a bit small, can't even get an A4 paper into it without folding. It jams very easily and is not easy to clear. Capacity is low. wish I hadn't purchased it. It says up to 8 sheets but it can't easily dispose of this number without jamming."
"Despite the limited capacity of the catchbox, the ProAction 8 performs better than most paper shredders that I have purchased recently - including one with a two-year warranty that broke down after only a few weeks of use! The ProAction 8 accepts very thin paper, all kinds of other paper and, even thin card quite comfortably!"
