Summary: You won't be sorry if you purchase this shredder. It's quieter than the previous one we had and Fellowes even includes some oil and when you're ready to empty the container ... a few bags for that as well !!! This shredder is well worth the price.
Summary: I haven't had it very long but from all I have read from other reviews, it holds up for a long time. It is bigger than I thought it would be and I really like that it is on wheels. I also like the convenience of being able to pull out the bin where all the shredded paper falls. I didn't discover the manual and bags that came with it until the first time I went to empty the bin. They were in the bin...duh! The operation of this shredder is great!
Summary: It does not get any better than this shredder! Our office purchased this previously and it lasted for many years of medium to heavy use. When it was time to replace it, the choice was clear that we would purchase the same one again. The micro-shred makes it almost impossible to see any information from what was shredded....I always feel confident that important documents have been safely destroyed.
Summary: I bought 2 different cross cut shredders than left entire account numbers intact. They were returned. After much research I purchased the MS 450Cs for two reasons: the length of run time vs cool down and the size of the confetti. I have only run it for very short periods so far but it is very quiet and the confetti is very tiny. It is a bit expensive for home use but it does the job.
Summary: The MS-450Cs replaced an old Fellows Powershred PS 60CC (cross cut). A world of difference between the two units. It's quiet and the "micro-cut" paper packs more densely. I go longer before emptying it, which is easy & much less messy than with my old shredder. The only problem I had was that the original unit was damaged in transit. I did not discover the problem until I tried to use it.
Summary: Nice shredder. A little pricey but I think it's a very good shredder. I particularly like the micro-shredding capability. Make your own confetti, if you will. But, I got it to shred bank statements, and the like. And it works like a champ.
