"5 thin sheets at a time is possible but noticeably slower. Perfect for 2 - 3 sheets at a time. Large collecting box. As stated it has overheat cutout which works fine. So far I have shredded 5 bins in volume with no problems Unit sits smartly on my wooden floor and is a little noisy but not an overpowering noise level I consider it very good value for money"
"Chose this shredder as it was slightly bigger but it is not too big. It is slim and looks good. I did take on board the review about the fine dust of paper left behind after shredding as the container is a basket rather than a solid container and to rectify this I lined the basket with the plastic bag you get with the shredder it was packed in. Does the trick and then I just empty the bag into a bin bag. Ta Dah! Noise level is not any worse than any shredder I have had before. Would recommend."
"The ProAction Cross Cut Shredder is easy to feed with papers and quickly shreds them into small pieces which could not be easily put back together like some other shredders. The collection bin is a very good size but because it is made of wire mesh it does release the dust. I have kept it in the plastic bag it came in to contain the paper dust. Excellent value for money compared to other brands."
"This product was faulty from the start. After being plugged in for the first time, there was no power. Changed fuse, which should not be necessary with a brand new product. It worked. Ten days later the shredder was used again. Nothing!No power! Arranging for this hopeless piece of equipment to be returned to Argos as I write this review"
