Does exactly what it says on the can! It also shreds credit/debit cards, though this wasn't actually mentioned in the product description. If doing a lot of shredding, it's a bit annoying to have to stop every couple of minutes or so, to let the shredder cool down. However, the cooling down period doesn't seem to be as long as the 30 minutes mentioned (more like 15 minutes) and, in any case, it's pprobably the same with all shredders in this price range.

This replaces a shredder that was nowhere near as good. It is sensible to shred certain documents today and this delivers bits, not stips, that would be very difficult to reassemble

This shredder was as a more-secure replacement for my strip shredder. Having reviewed a number online I selected this one as a cheap item but having good reviews (very few of the reviews had bad operational things to say about it). It was quieter in operation than my old one, and easily managed up to five 80gm sheets of A4 (rated for 6 sheets of the thinner 70gm paper) with no sign of being overworked until my pile for shredding was finished 10 minutes later. I noticed that in 'Auto' mode it did have a slight overrun after the previous feed of paper had shredded before turning off (presumably to clear the cutters), so don't be too quick to assume the auto-stop has failed and reach for the 'Off' switch. I found that the plastic bag in which the shredder head was wrapped made a very useful liner for the box when shredding. This could then be used to carry the bits to the paper recycling box. All-in-all a very satisfactory purchase and to be recommended to anyone for their small-volume, household secure shredding purposes. Just tried the card shredding facility. Worked a treat, so have upgraded my rating from 4 to 5 stars.

I use this for ocassionally shredding bank statements etc. I had accumulated a lot of bank statements and therefore, maybe had to shred about 100 papers per sitting. It stops when the overheat light is on (which I think is about 3-5min of non stop shredding). Instructions say 2 min non-stop, so I shouldn't really have made it go longer. The instructions say that I could do up to 6 sheets any one time, but I've only done 2 sheets. You do get bits sticking in the mechanism, but can easily pull that out.

What I like: You can see the shredded paper level, so you know when to empty it. Also, I like the cross-cutting, would be hard for anyone to piece the shredded bits together.

I wouldn't recommend it for heavy office jobs, but household use and occassional shredding, does the job.

I bought this to replace a cheaper machine that started to 'chew' things up into a mangled mess of ridges across the paper. This machine does a fantastic job and cuts things up into tiny pieces rather than long strings of paper. I'm very pleased with it.

I originally purchased this for home use but brought it into the office as a short term measure when our office shredder packed up a couple months ago. In fairness, I didn't expect it to last very long because there are 2 of us in the office - and working in financial services you can imagine the amount of confidential waste that needs shredding because barely anything can be recycled without being shredded first!! 2 months on we still haven't repaired or bought a new office shredder as this one's working out just fine.

It's small and doesn't take up much space - and looks nice and neat tucked away in a corner. One waste box full of shredding fits easily into an average sized carrier bag and as long as you're careful to only put through up to about 4/5 sheets at a time it will work for several minutes at a time without getting hot. Although I would always advise removing staples, if the odd one slips through the net it manages just fine with no adverse effects afterwards. Considering the level of use and abuse this little machine has had to cope with on a daily basis for the last couple of months (since early/mid November) I really have found it to be fantastic value for money - it's still working as well now as when I bought it!!

Couldn't possibly be happier with it - and would certainly be more than willing to recommend it/buy another if the need should arise.

FOOTNOTE - over 3 months of daily use in a small but busy office and haven't even had a paper jam yet. Still shredding as well as when it came out of the box and has done on occasion up to around 100-150 sheets in one session without overheating (as long as you don't try and put through more than about 5 sheets at a time and make sure you empty it when it's full rather than trying to keep going which will cause the paper to insulate the heat around the motor etc etc you're good to just keep going for several minutes). Still absolutely chuffed to bits.

Waste of money. Work once, never used to capacity, just a couple of sheets of paper at a time. Got a paper jam. Removed all paper I could see, which is a laborious task, tried all recommended methods of removing jam, but nothing. Blades stuck. Returning the item, will look for a better product.

Managed 10 sheets over two days would not work again.Thank you Amazon for your prompt returns policy and refund, alternatives do seem a little expensive though, for shredding a few sheets now and again
