The product is as described, arrived quickly and in good working order. I don't need a heavy duty shredder so this 8 page max is fine. I'd prefer longer than 2 minutes of constant shredding before the automatic shutoff kicks in but it's okay for my intended use. Having a mesh basket is nice feature so I can see when it's getting full. But keep a clear plastic bag inside to avoid small pieces of paper that sometimes sneak out onto the floor. It would be nice to have a slot to shred credit cards.
Compared to my very high $ and powerful shredder this one is a super value deal. So inexpensive, smaller so doesnt take up much space. And can handle multiple pages of paper. very happy with my new shredder. One bit of info. The first one I recd looked USED as was paper in the teeth of it. Overstock sent a NEW one even before I packed up the thought to be used one. Plus made it so easy with a no cost to me return label. No questions asked. And all with one call to Overstock customer service. This is example of why I love Overstock.
Nice style with the mesh basket. Used this unit x 5minutes and it started to smoke and turned off. After 15 minutes the unit started again and I inserted one paper at a time . Unit turned off after 5minutes and would not power back on after 15 minutes. I contacted overstock and there awesome customer service issued a return label . This cross cutter is going back.
It work great for what I needed it to do then after filling the basket it would shut off for about 1/2 hour. then on the 4th time it shut off so I wait about an 1/2 hour and it turned back on it would not turn back on. it took 3 days for it to turn back on again.
I've had my shredder 6months now. although it states 8pages... it is better to feed about 4-5 at a time or this machine will slow and shut down for a period due to over heating. However, it will come back on when it cools. I use my shredder for bulk paperwork at the end of the month. this is not an office workhorse type shredder for home business it is good. note that you can not put any stickers into this shredder. the grinding mechanism will eventually get clogged. This machine privacy shredding method is very good if that is your ultimate goal.
This is a great little paper shredder and does the trick! It is perfect for a single person dealing with mail and documents you want shredded. It is limited in the number of documents you can put through at a time but as long as you remember that, it is a nice workhorse. It fits just about anywhere like under a desk or next to the sofa. I got tired of ripping things up into little pieces and would definitely recommend this as an alternative. Well made.
Good shredder. Not sure how it compares with others. It's not being used for industrial-strength shredding, but this one works well for household use. It's too early to tell if it is going to last for a long time, which has been my complaint about other shredders - they break.
