Excerpt: Shreds quickly, but it makes a mess. The paper bin is difficult to put a bag in, and too messy without one. Every time I shred bits of papers fly. It serves it's purpose and it like it's size, shape, speed, etc., but I just wish it was cleaner and easier to empty.
Summary: Although this model (125Ci) came with a lifetime cutter warranty, the plastic strippers in cutter will fail after repeated use even with regular oiling and Fellowes won't honor the warranty. We went through four of this model in three years, using the manufacturers standard warranty and the purchased extended warranty. The Walmart extended warranty came through in the end, determined the unit wasn't worth fixing and provided a full refund--WOW!
Summary: My dad and I bought this shredder, because he is a retired lawyer with a lot of old paperwork that needed shredding and a store-brand shredder wasn't going to cut it. The first one we got was dead on arrival, but Amazon quickly sent out a replacement. After that initial hiccup, this has been perfect for his needs. It is a workhorse, able to shred continuously for a long time. Also it never seems to struggle with multiple pages, it handles everything confidently.
Summary: This shredder is the best one I have ever owned, the safest, the quietest and the most powerful. It is well worth the money. Very heavy item, be careful when un packing it and removing shipping bolts (see setup guide). Love it. Shreds cards and compact disks too ( no cards with chips or disks with chips though).
Nice shredder, but it cannot be set to remain powered on all the time.

Summary: This is a nice upgrade from my older Fellowes PS-77Cs that I had for 7 years. However, there has been one thing that has been a disappointment - you cannot have the device remain powered on all the time. It will timeout and require you to press the power button to be able to commence shredding. They should have made this optional. I'm going to be pressing this button everyday for years now. It's going to be pressed thousands of times.
Summary: It works well. I you do not have sensitive documents is excellent. Large bin a plus. The problem is that information can be seen on cut. Too large. I hade to get a micro-cut version for sensitive documents. No I have two of them.
Summary: This is an excellent shredder, and it takes paper as fast as you can feed it. I did a 6 inch high stack of paper in 10 minutes. I managed to jam it once, and had to pull out the wad of paper manually (would not reverse it out). Other than that, it worked flawlessly. Very quiet. It fills the waste basket pretty fast, though.
