Microshredding provides greater protection against identity theft than confetti, diamond or strip shredders. Shredder is very quiet, easy to operate and maintain, and has good capacity. Easily removable credit card / cd tray is a nice feature to help prevent bag-tearing if you use a bin liner.
This shredder shreds beautifully and completely. Its only drawback is that if you have a lot to shred, you will have to do so in segments, because it heats up and shuts down frequently. Once it heats up,and allows you to shred again, you only have a 3 minute segment to shred in, before it shuts down again. I would therefore recommend that you don't shred for too long a time .Don't save up ur papers for a shred marathon, as I did, and instead shred as you go , or only accumulate a small number of papers to shred at once. If you can do that, you will find it to be very effective. Additionally, it is vital to oil it frequently, as instructed in the manual. I oiled it 2-3 times per filled basket. The papers are shredded into tiny pieces, which provides total security for the private information you are shredding. It's a sturdy unit and already on casters when u receive it. The price was great and i added a coupon making it an even better value. I am happy i made this purchase and will shred more frequently to avoid the long cool down periods, and short run times.
This little powerhouse is awesome . . . but don't try to put more than the recommended amout of sheets in it. I knew it only took 7 when I ordered it and as long as you "follow the rules" it is an awesome shredder. I love how quiet it is! My other shredder would wake the person on the other side of the house up, it was so loud.

I purchased this from Overstock for much less than the retailers were charging. High quality, quiet operation, micro shred for max security. Safety turn-off feature when fingers get too close to the opening. Shipped in its commercial box inside a padded shipping box. I am using for home use and works great. I have not put it to the test for high-capacity shredding and in my opinion a commercial office shredding a high volume of material on a daily basis would require a larger capacity shredder.
