If you are buying this so that you can shred everyday mail once it arrives in your mailbox and you want the security of shredding it it work as described.... But if you have a stack of papers you want to shred and shopping for a low priced shredder well be prepared for it to take a while.... A long while. Overheats quickly, small basket that holds very little. Now while I love the fact that the blades are all metal and I did not see plastic parts like a larger one and same priced different model at Costco, don't buy it for that purpose. Everyday, one two, five pieces of mail GREAT! Anything other than that.... NOPE!
It works very well, but the container is made of rather cheap plastic. The separate container for CD shreds is made of the same material and it slides between two plastic rails located along the back of the container to position it under the CD slot. I would have preferred that the unit had casters and that it had a door for the shreds rather than having to take the shredder off to dump it.
Useful size for envelopes/small packages. Also use these for labels on files, folders, separator pages, etc. I even used these to label shelves and plastic containers where we store our office supplies. They come off the page easily, and seem to always stick.
