Aurora AS1023CD 12 Sheet Paper Shredder with Large&hellip by Aurora
I rate this shredder highly, it's relatively quiet compared to other similar products and easily does the task. There is; however, no justifiable reason to buy this product. It's quite expensive and for around 20 less, you can buy the Amazon Basics 12 sheet shredder which is essentially exactly the same machine - the actual shredder unit is identical, down to the look. The only differences are with the bin and in many ways, it's a worse design than the simple take-off-the-top design.

Firstly, the door does take a lot of encouragement to close before it's properly seated and the shredder recognises it. Secondly, the door design means the bin is actually very small and fills… Read more
Seagate STBU1000200 1TB Backup Plus USB 3.0 2.5 In&hellip by Seagate
Having suffered an external HD failure from Lacie I decided to buy this little Seagate to replace it. The drive itself is very compact and looks great with a simple but attractive design. It can easily be carried around and the case looks like it will survive a knock.

The interesting part about this drive is that the part of the drive which houses the USB3 connector actually comes apart from the rest of the drive exposing the SATA connection.

AmazonBasics 10- to 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder wi&hellip by AmazonBasics
This shredder is a great deal. It's very, very good for the price. You definitely won't find a cheaper 12 sheet shredder anywhere. It is very powerful and, well, it shreds!

The downsides:
-I've found that it can overheat maybe a tad quicker than other shredders and once it does, it takes a very long time to cool down again.
-The bin isn't the best design, it has no handles and only a thin rim to hold it with to empty it.
-The shredder itself is also very heavy but that's not too much of a problem.

Other than those minor problems (and I mean they really are minor), this is a great product for the price.
