Summary: I haven't done a lot of shredding yet, so, this review may be premature. I have done a lot of research on shredders, and this one gets good reviews. Overstock has the best price for this model by far--it's a great deal. It is pretty noisy, but is easy to use and seems to get the job done. I'm not sure I'm going to put a credit card or paper clip in it yet, though. The wastebasket is a little flimsy and the top is very heavy. You have to lift the top off to empty the bin.
Summary: This is my second of this model, I am giving this model another chance. Just after I reviewed it positively (from another supplier), it jammed and burned out. Unfortunately, not a sympathetic supplier, no money back. It IS a good cross shredder, but NEVER put cardboard however thin in it, and keep BELOW the recommended thickness (i.e. don't push it!!). So far, one near escape, but reversed out of it before it snagged on the switch.
Fellowes P-48C - Hopefully a (Cross) Cut Above The Rest!

Excerpt: "...at PC World for a Fellowes P-48C, I was somewhat annoyed to find it £10 cheaper in Argos a few days later, but that’s what you get when shopping ‘with your back to the wall’. This also tarnishes the image of having bought something more prestigious and lasting under the old adage of ‘you get what you pay for’. I find it difficult to believe that this product also has the audacity to have an RRP of over £100! Apparently, what’s actually happened is ...
Excerpt: LET’S SEE HOW LONG THIS ONE LASTS! I’ve grown tired of buying one shredder after another. I’ve tried fairly expensive ones from reputable ‘office machinery’ companies like Rexel, I’ve tried cheap ones from Tesco, and frankly, none of them lasts like you’d expect them to, especially since they are, to use that phrase, hardly rocket science.
Excerpt: "...research pointed me towards the Fellowes Powershred P-48C, which promised a good balance between price, design, features, reliability, and capacity. ===WHAT’S IN THE BOX?=== I ordered mine from Amazon for £39.99 (discounted from its £54.99 RRP) and it arrived in a sturdy cardboard box, securely packaged with environmentally sensitive materials. The unit comes in two parts – the shredder head, which also houses all of the controls, and the solid ...
Pros: Efficient, reliable and effective for occasional home and home office use .
Cons: In practical terms, sheet capacity is less than advertised .
Summary: Virker upåklageligt og smertefrit. Skærer papiret i små rektangler, helt som foreskrevet. Larmer lidt, men det er ikke unormalt for makulatorer. Et enkelt problem observeret, efter den kørte i 'bakgear', papirresterne blev skubbet op og blokerede indtaget, løsningen var blot at skubbe blokeringen ned igen med en lille skruetrækker, så blev den 'ædt' lige så fint.
