It does what the manufacturer claims

 

It shreds well, but overheats after 10-15 minutes of steady use. My only beef is that this and all of the other shredders that I found for home use have 8.5-9.0 inch slots. It would be nice if the slots were more like 11 inches to handle oversize paper...

Good Till It Died

 

I was in a hurry yesterday and accidentally exceeded its max capacity. Something snapped and it let out a large shriek when the motor started free-running after the gears broke. Not worth it to repair. Looking for a better built shredder with steel...

Inexpensive, cross-cut shredder. Shreds credit cards. Seemed to work well until the day it died.

No Auto-Stop or Auto-Reverse if it gets jammed. Kind of loud. Mesh basket leaks paper dust. Plastic/Nylon gears.

Good and bad

 

I am a light user as far as frequency/amount. This product has not lived up to expectations. I am in the market for a new one now and will go with a different manufacturer.

This is an attractive unit that shreds to nice, small pieces

It has never performed to the capacity it is rated for. It bogs down at 3 sheets, and if you put more than that, it will overload

Fellowes P70CM Cross-Cut Shredder

 

I'm torn; I like the see-through container but it's something I might not want to keep in my room since it creates a ton of dust.

Good shredding style, works quickly

Sounds angry when hungrily eating paper. Fills up fast. The see-through container gets dust/etc everywhere

Consumer review by:

good product

 

very simple to set up and use. It is quick and quiet.

easy

Consumer review by:

Nice medium sized shredder

 

Smaller than I though it would be but it works well. Love that the bin is mesh so I can see just how full it's getting. Wish it had a handle on the top unit so I would remove it easier for emptying the bin. The box for the item itself was damaged when...

wish there was a handle to lift top to empty bin

Great shredder

 

This shredder works much better than the higher priced ones that I have purchased in the past..It has a metal basket to catch the stuff that is shredded which allows you to see when it is full and needs to be emptied....so far so good....

Good price

Great shredder

 

It gets the shredding job done. I'm happy with it so far.

Shreds well
