  • Excerpt: " I purchased the first Powershred® DS-1 Cross-Cut Shredder in 2010 and within 2 years the motor burned up. It was only used for home use but my wife liked the design so I purchased the second one from Amazon in December 2011.
  • Pros: Shreds Credit Cards, Staples and CDs, Safety Features, Secure Cut Size
  • Cons: Mess Reduction, Jam Resistance, not very resilient
