I bought this as it was not too expensive and looked really slim as I was keen to get one which doesn't take much space. The design is indeed good -but unfortunately it does not work. It jammed from the start even with just one sheet. It managed to get a few sheets through (one by one) when I cleaned it but the next time around it did exactly the same. Now it is totally unusable and jams with each sheet and you need to go through the painful experience of removing bits of paper from its teeth...Don't waste money on this one. It put me off Swordfish altogether.
Unfortunately, I did not read the previous review prior to buying this shredder. I have had exactly the same problems, the so-called shredder cannot cope with 1 sheet of paper let alone the 5 it claims to be able to manage and constantly jams. Do not waste your money on this. You have been warned!
