I like that I purchased a larger shredder. I had a small Fellows shredder before and used it to death. I knew the brand "Fellows" would get the job done and it does. Always make sure to remove staples - don't want to damage the machine. On my smaller version if you used it for approx. 20 mins. it would heat up and need a break, so it would stop, and then once it cooled off, it was ready to go again. Also I have to admit on the smaller version, the paper would get jammed up from time to time and I would have to pick it out by hand. I haven't given this new larger version the workout yet, so probably has the same feature (might help if I read the instructions). Shredding your personal paperwork is a must and it gives me peace of mind. I really like the fact with this larger version that I don't have to dump the paper as frequently. Also it does have a much wider feeder for the actual shredding. I am using this for home use, but would be great for business too. This is a good purchase for the money.
I definitely recommend this shredder because it does exactly what it says. I’ve shredded credit cards and up to ten pages of paper without it getting clogged up.
My wife and I just love this shredder. When it arrived, about 48 hours after I ordered it, we initially though we ordered something wrong because it arrived in a very LARGE box. It was all the packaging material that made the box so large. Read the measurements of the machine carefully because it is a big larger than we expected. We have a small home office and I wanted a shredder that would shred paper, cds and dvds, credit cards, handle small paperclips, staples and junk mail. I love that I can take junk mail and not even have to open it and simply feed it into the shredder. The cross cut blade is good, as the paper is cut into small pieces. Our home office is located near our master bedroom, in the past, I had to wait to shred something because our OLD shredder was too loud, now, this new model is quiet. I can shred at any time without fear of disturbing my wife. We like the Fellows brand, our OLD shredder was also a Fellows brand machine that we had for over 10 years, we gave it to a friend because it still worked great! So why did we buy a new one, well, our old one did not shred CDs or handle staples, etc.... Overall, we are VERY happy with this product. Even happier, when we checked the price at our local office supply store, it was more money there, we really enjoy the savings and fast service we get from Overstock.
