The AS1023CD is a great shredder to use at home or in an office, it combines excellent performance and safety features with a price point well below its competitors. We describe the shredder as having a 12 sheet capacity and by this we mean you can take 12 sheets of paper and shred them all in one go (based on 75gsm). The AS1023CD cross cuts documents into small 5 x 55mm pieces which is very secure, it can also shred a single credit card at a time, and don't worry if you accidentally shred a paper clip or staple, this shredder will cope with both.
In addition there is a separate slot for shredding a CD or DVD, this separate shredding mechanism cuts the CD into 4 pieces destroying the CD, the separate shredding slot means that you don't have to put the CD through the slot intended for paper which should extend the life of your shredder. The large 18L waste bin will ensure that you don't have to empty it every 5 mins, and there is a large viewing window so you can see when it is full. The shredder has a pull out waste bin for easy removal meaning you dont have to lift the shredder head off the base when emptying - just simply slide out the bin, empty it and slide back into place.
There are a host of functions and safety features; including 'auto mode' which senses when the shredder should start and stop - when in auto mode there is a status indicator which lights up, 'Reverse' is used for clearing any jams, misfeeds or overloads, 'Thermal Overload' protects your shredder from overheating, the unit will cut out and not operate until cooled - there is also a status indicator that lights up should the thermal cut out be activated, there are also two further status indicators that light up, one for 'Overload' when you have inserted too much paper, and one for 'Bin Alignment' usually indicating the pull out bin has not been closed properly, both will light up and for safety prevent the shredder from operating. In addition there are further safety measures, a safety cut out prevents the shredder from operating if the bin is open or when the shredder head is not installed on the base correctly, we also have the patented feature 'ShredSafe', this is a safety cover on the top of the unit you can see in the pictures, the cover has 3 positions, closed - for when not is use, open for normal operation of the shredder, and a 3rd wide open position that operates the safety cut out, so basically if anyone trys to force anything including fingers into the shredder this will force the cover into the 3rd position instantly stopping the shredder from operating. To start shredding again simply return the ShredSafe cover to the middle operating position.
Overall this is a great home and office shredder that performs well, looks good and is easy to useand empty, the additional safety features and user friendly functions make the AS1023CD a great purchase for anyone looking for a reliable and safe new shredder.
AS1023CD Shredder & Wheels
Instruction Book,The instructions for correct positioning of the ShredSafe flap are both on the box & in the instructions book. Note: The shredder head has to be attached to the base correctly when assembling the shredder. Also they need to press down firmly on the top part of the shredder so that it clicks into place with the bottom cabinet, then the door will close properly and the door safety cut out light will go out and they can shred the paper.

This is my 4th shredder (previously Fellowes and 5 Star, which have all died within 2 years) and I rate it highly. After extensive research final buying decision was based on reported after-sales service and Aurora monitoring/response to comments on Amazon.
Purchased to replace my expired Fellowes shredder; this is infinitely superior!
Other option was a Swordfish but this combined paper/credit card/CD-DVD shred facility for almost half the price.
Best features: pull out bin, multiple media handling capability, value for money (especially compared to Fellowes & Swordfish).
I found this to be very reliable and did not keep cutting out as my previous locally purchased shredder did after a very short period of use.
Would recommend this unit for reasonably heavy duty home /office use.
It does take a couple of minutes to set up as you have to insert castors which is easy enough, but you also need to push the shredder head down firmly onto the bin until it clicks into place. This is pretty important otherwise the "BIN OPEN" light will be displayed and the shredder will not operate, even if the bin is closed, which is slightly confusing.
Apparently this is a safety feature for when you have not set it up correctly, so just ensure there is no gap between the head & the bin casing, then it works very well.
About 6 months on from purchase date I was disappointed to find that the shredder had stopped working completley and has been returned for a refund.

A sturdy item, smaller than I envisaged, but it is OK for A4 paper etc . albeit somewhat noisy in operation, but it
is good value for the money. I am not unhappy.
Had this shredder for 2yrs and it has been a good product. It has worked hard so when it finally broke it didn't owe me a penny.Published 1 month ago by Amazon Customer
So far working well with no problems. Very pleased with size of pieces. Noisier than I would wish for but after all it is not working all the time so not a problem.Published 2 months ago by Barbara B
