Don't get the wrong impression. It's a shredder. I'm not losing sleep over this but it's quieter and stronger than anything else costing £20 more than this. If it goes wrong, I'll get another just the same.
I have recently purchased this item and have not had much use of it yet so will add comments later if I feel there is anything to add.
The item was well packed. There is some assembly required - the wheels go on first (two locking wheels at the front and standard wheels at the back), then the shredding unit is placed on collection unit, then the collection drawer fits in place. There are markings on the top to show where credit cards go through the middle section of the main shredder. CDs/DVDs have a separate shredding slot. While putting it together the collection unit felt a bit flimsy for the weight of the shredding unit but it seems to be sturdy enough. The locking wheel mechanism does nothing for me as the unit is on a hard floor it just slides. I also noticed some bits of paper in the mechanism and at first thought it was a reject. Then I read the instructions again and they tell you it's because they test all units before they are sent out.
This shredder cuts paper into very small pieces (about 1/3 of the length of a standard cross-cut shredder), is quiet compared to other shredders I've had and does take the full 8 sheets plus staples without jamming up. I've not tried credit cards or DVDs yet. Overall I'm happy with my purchase.
The motor sounds like it is having to strain no matter how many, or few, sheets it is fed.
Even with a maximum of 6 sheets at a time just 2 minutes continuous shredding caused it to cut out, and there was a definite "hot spot" above the motor. Unable to restart for 40 minutes, whilst it cools down, is a real pain.
It also jammed on several occasions, and again I had to wait ages before I could attempt to un-jam it. Reverse doesn't appear very effective in un-jamming and I needed long nosed pliers to drag out the pieces.
The actual slot for the paper shredder is quite narrow and it causes the majority of sheets to run over the edge and double over.
It cuts DVDs and CDs (one at a time) into about 5 strips.
The bin assembly is quite flimsy and, every time I needed to empty it, tiny shredded bits had collected down the sides and the back and these ended up making a hell of a mess on the floor. The bin itself doesn't hold as much as I expected and requires frequent emptying.
The best thing I can say about this shredder is that it DOES cut the paper into VERY small bits that are impossible to read, but it takes a long time to shred if you have lots of sheets to do.
It WILL cut out if you try to keep shredding over the 2 minutes limit and a 40 minute wait (for it to cool down) means it takes a long time to do a lot of sheets. I found 6 sheets at a time was the best I could do. I cannot imagine WHY Amazon say 7 to 8 sheets maximum, unless it is to burn out the motor faster and require a new shredder?
Happy with this purchase, still working well after a few months of irregular use (not in the shower). I was always concerned that my old budget shredder was leaving a bit too little to the imagination of the fraudster who is hanging out by my bins / the recycling centre to piece together my bills & delivery slips for their nefarious purposes. No issues with overheating as reported by others, though I don't load it with more than 5 sheets at once - why tempt fate after all.
The pull out tray works well and doesn't make much of a mess, unless you prefer to pull it out with a windmill action, which I assume most people wouldn't. Otherwise just pretend you're having a parade.
The cut is small enough to allow me to sleep at night, but I still stir things around for good measure when clearing it. Also ran a credit card through it, which it left shredded and in pieces - just like the credit card did my bank account - a poetic end.
Another plus was that it wasn't boxed in polystyrene - instead had some cardboard moulded insets - always thankful when I'm just contributing to the world's demise through mass consumption rather than having to throw away packing material that will last longer than human-kind.
