Summary: Purchased this shredder to replace the p48c I had that the switch broke. I had the previous shredder aapprox. 5 years and it was an excellent machine. Looking forward to many years with the new one. Would definitely recommend this shredder to anyone looking for a home shredder medium useage.
Pros: Quiet Operation, Sheet Capacity, Quality Construction, Shreds Credit Cards, Staples and CDs, Safety Features, Jam Resistance
Summary: When it jams there is no good way to clear it. There is too much space between the top and the blades that the cut paper can get jammed in there. Too many sheets meant an hour of trying to clear it. This included turning it over, engaging a safety switch to try and get paper to push out the jam.
Pros: Safety Features
Cons: Mess Reduction, Quiet Operation, Jam Resistance
Summary: I purchased this unit based on shred time and cool down time. As with most shredders you cannot shred the max amount of pages without creating a jam. This unit jams very easily. The sheets must go into the feeder straight, if the pages fold on either side you immediately create a jam.
Summary: I hate this shredder if you need to shred any large amount at a time it will stop because it has a sensor that it is to warm. Takes forever to do any large amount of shredding. It only will handle 2 sheets before it starts to bog down.
Cons: Sheet Capacity, Mess Reduction, Jam Resistance
