Summary: I need to shred a few things every day at work--but have the bad habit of filling a 'shred box' instead of taking care of it every day. I don't have one in my own office, but my partner does. Today I borrowed it to clear out quite a bit of excess and it did a very useful job.
Summary: I have this shredder, which has worked well in my small office (legal). I've had the shredder for one or two years now. It is reliable and has not malfunctioned. A while back, I shredded a batch of approximately 10,000 sheets of old client files.
Summary: This shredder is an absolute work horse. We've had this shredder over 4 years. Not one jam!! It's designed so that you can't shove in more paper than it can handle. And if you're on the edge of maximum capacity, you simply hit the reverse button.
Summary: The only upgrade you might want to consider is getting the paper more shredded. Meaning this is not a high security multicut shredder. It does work very well though and is far superior to the last shredder I had. It seems to be more powerful and realiable.
Summary: I am the IT manager of a small home office network. My employer is a boisterous young woman who is the worst abuser of office equipment ever. She will feed 90 sheets to a 50 sheet tray every day and complain when it jams.
Pros: Large capacity. Heavy duty construction. Overheat indicator. Attractive styling for home office use.
Summary: So far, so good! I purchased this for our small business office and it sees limited use but it's doing the job well. Replaced another brand that self-destructed in just over a year of mild use!
Summary: Given the price of this shredder, I'm disappointed that I didn't get the cross cut version. I shred a lot, including CDs, DVDs, and credit card junk that comes in the mail, but the cross cut version is $10 more and adds more security to the shredded output.
