"This is a very adequate machine for what it is supposed to do. I do a lot of shredding and wear a machine out in two years so I have had quite a few!
Functionality is good and storage is excellent but the one downfall is noise. As the machine has an open mesh basket all the noise escapes instead of being muffled as in a solid basket and it could therefore be annoying for domestic use in a small home if, as I do, you have a lot of shredding."
"This is my third electrically operated shredder, the 2 previous cheaper products failing too soon in my view. This should last longer, being able to cut 10 sheets at a time.
It appears to be robustly constructed, but only time will tell. Modern technology relies heavily on plastic, which with age will become brittle. Once upon a time a product like this, once purchased,would be expected to last more than 5 years!! I have only had this one a week!"
"This shredder is quite speedy and will take up to five sheets easily - I did not try with 10. It will stop working for about half an hour when it thinks it has been working too long - about 20 mins! but I think that this is common with all shredders for this price. I was shredding a year's supply of papers so no wonder it wanted a rest. The base holds a lot of shreddings."
"Purchased this shredder to replace an older one that kept clogging up. So far its been brilliant, shredding up to 5 sheets at a time with no problem. Its probably quite capable of doing the ten sheets that it claims to be able to do but haven't needed to try that yet. I would have liked a little more storage for the waste but it is not that bad and yes, it is a little noisy but again its not too bad. All in all a good product"
"Little heavier than I expected; but once you get it out it becomes clear it's because the mechanism is sturdy. Shreds at a reasonable rate & bin can hold plenty. Makes nice small pieces; you'd have to be a millionaire for it to be worth the time of anyone piecing it back together. Also makes great pulp to press into bricks for the fire. The only slight downside is that the blades in the CD slot are quite wide apart. To be fair, its fine for CDs; but not great for bank cards."
"Purchased to replace a tired but trusty shredder the product does a reasonable job .However it quickly becomes warm on doing a large amount of shredding which my old shredder handled easily It did not cut out but sounded annoyed also the mesh waste bin is not a good idea releasing a surprising amount of dust onto the floor Next time I may read the description of the product before purchasing .. Working OK after a fortnight of normal use but I don't think I would purchase the same item again."
"Recently had to change from a strip shredder to a cross cut shredder and quickly noticed the difference because it takes a lot longer to fill the base and you get a lot more done for a smaller bag of rubbish at the end."
"I feel this is only meant for occasional use.If you have a lot of documents to shred then it will overheat after about fifteen minutes and trip on the cut out.It then takes about half an hour to cool down before you can use it again.So fine for occasional but not brilliant if you have stockpiled your paperwork.Also fairly noisy."
"Very happy with the performance with the shredder.Does not keep getting jammed up ,like the others that did not last long before getting jammed.The only Negative is the box for t holds the shredded CDs it sits inside the main Basket on a metal frame. Well you could say well remove it yes you could but if you put your hand into the basket your hand could be scratched,by the metal frame.The other thing is if that mini basket inside. its hard to empty the shredded paper,as it gets stuck behind it."
