Excellent home shredder
on 22 August 2011
I've been using this shredder most days of the week for a month. I know that's not a long time, but it's been perfect for me so far.
The blades are metal, which allayed my fears of plastic ones wearing out quickly, and using the shredder oil as per the instructions has kept it running smoothly (you can notice a slight change in noise - it's marginally smoother-sounding - after oiling).
If you try to shred 5 sheets of office paper you can hear that it's working hard, so I've been putting 3 or 4 through at a time and it sounds and works great like that.
The waste bin is a reasonable size unless you're shredding loads of papers.
It's clearly sold as a home shredder and says it isn't made for home office use, so don't expect it to hold up to higher-intensity use.
UPDATE APRIL 2013: still going strong! shredding credit card and bank statements fairly regularly (home use, NOT office).
