I've had this for a couple of months now and on the whole I'm happy with it.

I have to disagree with it's claim to "shred up to three sheets of paper in one go", when it struggles with only two. On thicker paper / card / CD's you have to be careful with the handle too, as it seems like it may snap at any moment.

However, one sheet at a time and it's fine, so if you keep on top of what you want to dispose of, then you shouldn't have any problems. Moreover, it doesn't waste any needless electricity shredding or sitting on standby.

For me, as a home user, it works fine for the occasional bank statement / bill / receipt, but for a frequent / business user then it you may like to consider something a little beefier.

This shredder broke the same day that I received it. I only shredded 2 sheets at a time and didn't even fill up the bucket before it broke. The problem is the handle is too weak, due to the fact that it is made out of inadequate plastic. Very disappointed as I really wanted to use a manual shredder rather than an electronic one and this seems to be the only one on the market, or at least on Amazon.

This product is perfect for shredding credit cards and CDs, as it cuts the former into four strips and the latter into three, making them totally unusable.

It is not as effective on paper. It probably could handle 3 sheets of 30 gsm paper, but definitely cannot shred 3 sheets of standard laser photocopier paper (70-80 gsm) at one time. Stick to shredding a single sheet at a time and you'll experience no problems.

This IS a cross cut shredder, as it produces small strips of paper about 5cm long and 1cm across at varying intervals from the document being shredded. This is unlike other hand shredders on the market that produce continuous strips that are the length of the document being shredded.

The handle and clear plastic base are both flimsy. The manufacturer could have improved on the design by replacing the plastic handle with a metal handle instead. I would be happy to pay slightly more for this feature as it would make it feel more sturdy.

This unit is also prone to getting clogged with shredded paper in the top cover. On multiple occasions I have found it necessary to unscrew and clean out the top plastic part.

Overall, an OK unit - good for destroying credit cards and compact discs, but not so good on paper.

I purchased this shredder to replace my electrical one which eventually gave up the ghost after about 3 years of usage. So far I have been very impressed with the performance of the Draper. Papers (and thin cards) can be cross shredded effectively provided that one sheet is inserted at a time. So it is perfect for home use but not if you need to shredd large volumes on a regular bases.

The card shredder dealt with my old credit card very well - cutting it into thin stripes. Have not tried the CD cuttter yet so can't comment on it yet.

Overall it does exactly what you would expect a hand operated shredder to do. It is important to hold the unit with the other hand or keep it on a flat surface so that it is easier to hold it in place to prevent sideways movement while turning the handle.

I live in a flat so noise is an issue and I don't want to disturb my neighbours with noisy electric shredders so this is ideal. My process is to scan in the document to PDF, remove the parts of the document that contain personal data and put the rest for recycling. I then shred the bits containing personal data one page/ripped off half page at a time. It does confetti shred so you get the increased security. Occasionally I empty the container into a black bag and once that's full I will give it a good shake and start putting a few handfuls in with my normal rubbish. This way, even if someone tried to piece it all together, it's unlikely that they would have all the bits.

One point to consider though... you need to put some pressure on the top of the shredder while turning the handle to stop it from sliding. It can be a bit cumbersome and I think it really needs a handle fitting to make it easier to apply the pressure. If you're perhaps elderly, or if you've got weak arms, you may find it a bit of a strain to have to keep applying pressure to the top each time you shred a page. And I'm not saying that all elderly people have weak arms; my 79 year old father could probably beat me in an arm wrestle... but you know what I mean.

The CD and credit card shredders work well. The CD is cut into three pieces or thereabouts, and credit cards are sliced into four pieces.

I would have given it five stars if it wasn't for the fact that you have to apply pressure during the shred. The fact that it works best when shredding one page at a time was never an issue.

Have had no problems since bought. As others have said, shred 1 sheet at a time though. Shredded DVDs and CDs and plastic cards with no problems. Provided you take care when turning handle slowly and hold device with other hand firmly you will not go wrong. Shreds paper very well into small pieces (horizontal and across) and CDs, DVDs and plastic cards into 3 strips.
