Although basic and reasonably priced I was totally disappointed with this product. It is really unforgiving if you are trying to shred paper over 80gsm... I also found that it 'jammed' far too easily and there is no easy method of releasing the offending paper. If you only want a shredder for very light use and paper between 60 and 70gsm and you have the patience to feed it in one sheet at a time, then this might be suitable. However I could not recommend this model for this or any other purpose.
