I bought this shredder having previously bought a laminator from the same maker, now its hard to get very excited about a shredder, it arrived, i unpacked it, plugged it in and it worked...
I have shredded loads of junk mail and the resulting waste should be good for kindling for my fire this winter.
The shredder itself has performed very well and does what i expected - it shreds paper, I did have an old shredder a few years back which cut the paper into long strips - this one cuts it into pieces which seems to take up less room so i have to empty it less - which is good.
The shredder also is able to shred credit cards...I haven't tried this yet and will update here when i do.
Other than that it looks quite nice and doesn't take up much room, if you want a shredder for your home, I would say this is ideal.
