"I bought this product after another cheaper one had failed. The first impression was that the box was heavy and I hoped this signified a well-built product. I was correct. The motor unit that sits on top of the waste bin is heavy as a result of it housing a strong electric motor and is easily capable of doing what is claimed of it. It reduces documents to confetti thus adding to the security of shredded personal information."
"I am disappointed with this shredder. The main reason for my score is that it will not shred a reasonable volume of paper before the thermal cut out kicks in and switches off the operation. You then have to wait 30 minutes before you can use the shredder again. If you have more than 25 sheets to shred this is a total pain in the (neck)! For small volumes it is fine but extremely noisy, not unlike other shredders. I intend returning it to Argos for a different manufacturers machine."
"Lovely machine. I shredded loads with no problems even old credit cards, it eats like its never been fed. It does run on a bit afterwards but that's no problem and doesn't affect the performance. I leave it on auto discreetly positioned by my favourite chair and drop in anything with personal details on as and when I come across them. Easy, line the bin with a bag and just lift out and replace when full, job done, no mess either."
"Bought this to replace my worn out shredder. It's fine for normal domestic purposes but it does get hot and cut out after about 10 mins of constant shredding and you have to wait about 30 mins before it can be used again but in a normal domestic situation this should not be a problem.
It cuts efficiently and doesn't get jammed up, box capacity is again fine for domestic use. It's a bit noisy but not a problem for me.
"Bought this to replace a broken machine, based on other reviews plumped for this one. No problems with it's performance and size of the bin is good, however if you have a lot of shredding to do it switches off after approx. 30 mins (to cool down presumably) and can take up to 30 mins to reset. This is clearly stated in the manual so it's not a design problem We had 3 years worth of bills/statement etc. etc. so this was a pain but got there in the end. Overall a good shredder at a sensible price."
"Had a previous Proaction shredder which failed after 18 months for no real reason. Was going to buy another make but Proaction was all that was in stock. This model is a bit more powerful than the previous one so with care it might last a bit longer. Either way I paid the extra for the 3 year insurance cover so no more payout for the next 3 years!! Yes it's noisy but they all are so no change there then!!"
