"Went for the cross cut version, for extra security! Large storage bin. Read reviews but went against them and bought it anyway. Glad I did, there's nothing wrong with it! Works excellently. Most sheets I have tried at a time though is 3 which i'll stick to just in case as it sounds like its going to die when doing 3 lol. Really loud. But doesn't bother me and doesn't wake my sleeping baby so it's fine :D Great Product. Definitely reccommend"

"I was looking for a shredder for occassional use at home and this seemed fine for the job. However, where that "5 sheets" came from I do not understand. With 5 sheets of standard 80gsm copy paper it just stops working. And with 4. It makes a complaining noise with 3 sheets and stops after a while. It doesn't really like 2 either, and soon overheats and gets clogged up. It can manage with 1 sheet, though it still gets clogged up after a while. Emptying and clearing out the jams is a messy job."
"Bought this item after reading the reviews and have to say I have not been let down. Good capacity and found it a lot quieter than my previous shredder. Very inexpensive but so far I am impressed with the operation of this item. Time will tell ---- no complaints"
"First purchase did not work at all. Activation pin in wrong place. Returned to Argos, checked replacement in shop. Pin in correct position. At home, it overheated after 4 A4 sheets were put in 2 at a time, although stated 5 sheets at a time could be shredded. After 20 minutes "rest", it allowed a single sheet of A4 to shred half way, then jammed and overheated again. A smell of burning was detected. Returned to Argos again, now 3 lots of parking charges paid(!) Paid £5 more for a different make."
