I replaced another Fellowes shredder with this one. I liked the old one better. They both shred ok, but to empty the old one you picked the top off by the built in handle. The new one has no handle, just two dents in the sides of the top requiring two hands. The window to check the level of shredded material in the new one is smaller too giving you less time to realize it will need to be emptied soon.
This shredder is much quieter than my old Fellowes which lasted me 7 years. I like the big basket so you don`t have to frequently empty it. My old one had a pullout basket which was nice. This shredder you have to remove the top to empty, which is O.K. since it has a larger basket.
