Summary: I've only had this shredder for about one month. It works well so far. I bought this one because it was the only one for the price that got consistently good reviews. I did see complaints about the noise, but in this price range you can't expect whisper-quiet. It is no noisier than others I've had.
Summary: Good price. Updated version of the model I bought several years ago. Sturdy unit, expect same years of service as my previous purchase. Surprised that instructions suggest daily use of only 100 sheets.
Excerpt: The Fellowes® Powershred® W11C Cross-Cut Shredder is solid and dependable. And priced right at Staples! When my old shredder used for home and office(manufacturer name withheld) finally quit I was forced to shop around. I settled on this one at Staples. I made the right decision.
