4.0 out of 5 stars Seems good so far, 12 July 2010
I have never had a shredder before but researched Amazon and internet reviews of various shredders before committing to this one. I am satisfied with my purchase so far, having had it for about 4 weeks.

Good points
*Sturdy and strong
*Separate bin is very easy to remove and re-fit
*Does not make mess (provided you empty bin when 3/4 full)
*Bin is fairly large and does not need emptying too often
*Comes with wheels so you can pull it to where ever you are working
*Sale price was cheaper than many lower spec. shredders

Bad points
*Takes less paper than advertised (up to 5 or 6 pages at a time)

I love the idea of having the cuttings collected and, as my hedges are tiny box hedges less than 1 foot high, I thought this would be perfect.

The second time i used it the motor sounded as though it was straining, a singeing smell came out of it, and it and wasn't cutting very well. I have decided not to bother any more with it.
The annoying thing is having the hassle of packing it up to send it back and paying for postage etc. I wish i had bought something from a nearby retailer that i could have just taken back and got my money back.
I have now decided to buy a Bosch 41cm Cordless… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant or Dull?, 19 April 2006
Seems as though those who read it find it a wonderful, accomplished and satisfying read, or just rather dull. I am in the middle. Whilst "On Beauty" said "quality" in many ways, I could have put it down at any point and not given a second thought to the fate of any charachter.
