"Kept getting clogged up even though I was only feeding in 1 sheet at a time. Eventually it seized up completely. The unit is sealed and you can only access it from underneath to pull out trapped paper which is useless if the paper is trapped above the blades."
"Have had several shredders which did some things and not others. This very compact shredders does all one could expect of a small machine. I am delighted with the overall performance and thoroughly recommend it for use in all situations as it is so easy to empty."
"Wish it wasent so noisey, an didn't keep cutting out after a few minutes of use through over heating. But other than that it's got plenty of storage I would of given 5 star if the problems weren't there"
Buy shredder that lifts up off top of bin instead.

"Shreds 3-4 sheets but quite quickly, bin window good idea.
Bin size OK but cant fill or sticks on paper still in shredder. Pull out and bin front almost comes away from sides. Fill half full when pull bin out bits from shredder fall in machine, put bin back in, cant because paper piled up inside where bin goes. = shred, empty bin empty machine, hoover."
"Worked well enough, although a little noisy, however after 6 weeks it seemed to be making very heavy weather of shredding and alarmingly started to smoke and give off string burning smell (so much for thermal cutout). Shredder was never overloaded (only ever did 1 or 2 sheets at a time) and had only needed to be emptied once. Could have been a one-off but lost faith in the brand and got a refund (with no fuss from Argos, so well done to them)"
"with very little home use this motor burnt out in under 2 years,the motor always seemed to struggle.and I never tried it with the 8 sheets suggested it could do.I consider it was a cheap & poor quality motor"
"I have had this shredder for three months and I am most dissatisfied with it. The worst thing about it is that it jams and it is impossible to clear the paper from the cutters. I had to dismantle it right down to separating the cutters to get bits of paper out. The other thing is that it has a steel drive screw from the motor to nylon gear wheels (isn't that stupid?) and no clutch so when the cutters jammed the motor continued to run and the drive screw stripped the teeth off the gear wheel."
