Summary: I love this shredder so far. It's smaller than our old one so it doesn't take up quite so much space in our small home. Also, I like that the basket is solid with a viewing area to show if the basket is full. Our old shredder had a wire basket and who wants to see shredded paper or have visitors see it? It handled multiple sheets of paper like a dream and old credit cards breezed through like there was nothing to them. I'd highly recommend this for busy households.
Summary: For the price, and for a product that is described as "medium duty", I expected something more than what I received. Overstock's shipping was fabulous and fast but the shredder is a waste of money. Royal claims that this shredder will accept 12 sheets of paper. It barely will accept 1 sheet of paper, much less 2 or more. It gets overheated after using continuously for 2 minutes.
Summary: For the price I cant complain. I bought this just for the disc shredder. It worked great up until about 1100 discs. I got to about 1100 discs and the feed mechanism of the shredder stopped feeding so I had to force the discs in. Returned it after that. For the money and the use I got out of it its not bad at all. The only thing I can figure is that it is not meant for heavy use.
Summary: After looking over the specs and reviews of several paper shredders, I chose this one which is less than half the price of the next one in line that I was considering. So far, this is a good shredder for my purposes. It certainly does the job intended with the features that are wanted in such a unit.
