Excerpt: This unit is a glorified waste basket shredder, which the waste basket is provided for you. You have to lift the shredder mechanism up off of the basket to empty the waste, it's heavy, ackward and clumsey to do so. It also broke after one weeks use..
Excerpt: I would not buy this product it arrived did not turn on and the blades were completely rusty returned immediately to store and bought one that was actually on sale and a better non rusty machine and it actually turned on when plugged in.
Cons: Flimsy Construction, Rusty did not work, Unreliable
Excerpt: UPS delivered it I opened the box plugged it in. It did not turn on did not light up nothing, so I turned it over and all the blades on the bottom were rusty. I brought it right back to Staples who were really nice and appologetic and I bought one in the store that they recommended.
Summary: Danger do not buy this shredder. I only used it a few times and it quit working. I bought this in January 2011, and it broke in september 2011. this is for home use and I only shred a few sheets a month. very light use.
Summary: Unless no other shredder is available on the planet, you should not buy this shredder. I bought this thing from the local Target in early 2011 and 6 month of use proves that it is a very bad product. Let me first begin what appears to be insult to injury.
Summary: This is a lousy shredder. It will not work unless the wobbly top is on just so. It is sold as an 8-sheet shredder, but it jams if you put in more than 4 20-lb. standard 8 1/2 x 11 copy paper sheets. Some jams are nearly impossible to clear even with reversing. Lousy. Stinko. Bad.
