Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The AS800CD is a great shredder to use at home and in a small office, the first thing to notice about the AS800CD is its attractive styling, 'high gloss' black and sleek lines have been used to create a visually appealing design that will look very smart in your home or office. We describe the shredder as having an 8 sheet capacity and by this we mean you can take 8 sheets of paper and shred them all in one go (based on 75gsm). The AS800CD cross cuts documents into small 5 x 47mm pieces which is very secure, it can also shred a single credit card at a time, and don't worry if you accidentally shred a paper clip or staple, this shredder will cope with both.

In addition there is a separate slot for shredding CD or DVD's, this separate shredding mechanism strip cuts the CD into 4 pieces destroying the CD, the separate shredding slot means that you don't have to put the CD through the slot intended for paper which should extend the life of your shredder. The large 16L waste bin will ensure that you don't have to empty it every 5 mins, and there is a large viewing window so you can see when it is full. The shredder itself has a built-in handle for easy removal and emptying, auto mode for shredding, a reverse option for clearing any jams, safety cut outs prevent accidental operation, and thermal cut outs protect your shredder from overheating.

Overall this is a very good home/office shredder that will perform well and look good, in addition the range of features available at this price point make the AS800CD excellent value for money. The AS800CD now also comes with two free of charge SP1000 shredder lubrication and sharpening sheets, which are also available to purchase via Amazon.

8 sheet capacity *, 5 x 47mm cross cut, 6m/min speed, 220mm throat width, 16 litre bin, shreds credit cards/staples & small paper clips

5.0 out of 5 stars Aurora AS800C Cross Cut Paper Shredder 14 Jan 2011
By Scott
I needed a shredder to shred the typical household things, like receipts and bank statements, and this does the job, whilst looking good.

- Sturdy and solid build. The head is rather heavy, but has an aesthetic handle at the top to lift it from the bin;
- Nice sleek design (doesn't look "officey" at all);
- Shreds the paper into really tiny pieces, which was a concern with a non-cross cut shredder. If I had hamsters, they would have a happy home;
- It handles many receipts & paper at one go at a good speed - I do not tend to feed it much at one go (just a personal preference), but the heavy head definitely has a manly enough shredder;
- The new engine inside smells quite nice when you first start using it;
- It shreds CDs. It has a nice guard on the CD shredder, too;

- I cannot see any drawbacks to it right now. It's exactly what I needed.

NOTE: When shredding bank statements (around 4 sheets), do not fold them, as this can give the shredder a bit of a hard time. This is NOT the shredders' fault, as it clearly states that it can "only" take up to 8 sheets, which is really great. I managed to temporarily jam it by feeding it a folded 4 sheet bank statement, but it was easily resolved by pressing the Auto and Reverse buttons.

A good solid product, with large waste bin. Ideal for home office. Shreds credit cards & CD's with ease.The only problem I have found is that the paper to be shredded has to be inserted at an angle to allow the auto detection to work.Aurora AS800CD Cross Cut Paper Shredder with 8 Sheet Capacity and Large Waste Bin

5.0 out of 5 stars Aurora AS800CD 5 Mar 2011
What a super shredder! Having tolerated my old HSL shredder, which could barely cope with a single sheet of A4 and happily over-heated after about 3 minutes of use, I bit the bullet and bought the above after reading previous purchasers' comments.
While I've not tried to shred a CD, and probably never shall, I've tried 8 sheets of paper and while they didn't exactly zoom through the shredder coped ok.
I then continued shredding at around 4 sheets per time and yippee - no jamming, over-heating, or cursing!, and the job was completed in a tenth of the time that my HSL would have required!
In my opinion this is a good product!Aurora AS800CD Cross Cut Paper Shredder with 8 Sheet Capacity and Large Waste Bin

4.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the box 16 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase
Overall I liked this product. It arrived on time and well packaged. Once set up it worked well and cuts pieces into 1-2cm x 0.5cm (guessing) rectangles.

Upsides are that it is good value for money, the metal cutters are really thick, solid and look tough, you can shred almost constantly for quite a while before it overheats. I've used it lots and not had any problems with it jamming. Window in the bin helps to let you know it's getting full.

Downsides are that the bin is rather flimsy considering how heavy the top bit is and it's still a tad small if you're doing loads so you do have to keep stopping to empty it.

Also, it might just be me but when I got it I thought it didn't work as it wouldn't shred. There is a small rounded plastic bit on the bin that has to slide exactly into the right place on the shredder for it to work. This isn't very clear in the instructions. When you place the top on the bin it doesn't naturally sit in the right position so you have to slip it into place. Then (and this might just be my one) you have to adjust it slightly for it to work.

I've not listed this as a bad thing as it is a security feature and once you know to do it it becomes automatic. But just remember to try it first before giving up and thinking it is broken!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Product 14 May 2011
Got this to replace my old W H Smith shredder which had died on me. This shredder is altogether far superior. It handles multiple sheets with ease and eats credit cards. Been using it for several weeks and it still does not need emptying. It is also much quieter than my previous shredder. Can't fault it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - i'm very pleased. 29 Oct 2010
By Jean
Recieved this recently and i have to say i am very pleased with my purchase, and i will consider buying more for a few friends who i know are in need of a relaiable shredder.

Firsty i think it looks really nice - it has a very shiny black and silver finish which you can just about see in the photos, in reality this looks even better and its quite eyecatching.

I have shredded all of the junk mail that had built up, and the shredder ate it all without flinching.

It seems quieter than i had expected also, the handle is a nice touch and makes emptying easy. I also like the separate slot for shredding CD's which should protect the main shredder although i haven't had need to shred CD's.

On the downside i guess the bin could be a little bigger, but the viewing window allows you to see whats going on there - so really it's not an issue.

I'm a new customer to Amazon and all i can say is that i am very impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great shredder 19 Mar 2011
By Neilj
This was a replacement for my old 'strip' shredder, and I'd have to say this is a great product, and so far I've had no issues with it at all. It has happily "munched" it's way through a whole stack of old bills & statements, and didn't even sneer when there were staples in some of them. The credit card slot also works well, but I have not tried out the CD shredding yet; however based on what I've found so far I do not anticipate any issues if ever I need to destroy a CD.

Although it coped with 8 sheets, I found it easier to do no more than 5 at a time, and although the motor does get warm I haven't found any issues with it cutting out (unlike my old shredder).

All in all a great product 9/10
