A very good shredder but.....,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fellowes Powershred DS-1 Cross-Cut Shredder with SafeSense Technology (Office Product)
...I had to disable the ridiculously oversensitive SafeSense feature as it was preventing any paper being shredded. And, before you ask, my hands were nowhere near the shredder input slot! I guess this may be due to the paper having similar conductivity to human skin (maybe it was slightly, imperceptibly damp...), but then I'm no scientist! Other reviewers have commented that creased paper caused problems, but my shredder wouldn't shred perfectly flat paper!
Now that I have disabled the SafeNonsense feature, shredder performance is very good and it quickly and easily shreds paper, light card, and credit cards into 35mm x 5mm strips.
And how to disable SafeSense? Well, this was mentioned by a reviewer back in April - just slide the switch on the right-hand underside of the shredder head (perilously close to the shredding teeth, which I note with delicious irony - SafeNonsense indeed...).
