4.0 out of 5 stars A great personal shredder, 18 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Draper 78778 3-in-1 Hand-Operated Paper, Credit Card and CD Shredder (Office Product)
I live in a flat so noise is an issue and I don't want to disturb my neighbours with noisy electric shredders so this is ideal. My process is to scan in the document to PDF, remove the parts of the document that contain personal data and put the rest for recycling. I then shred the bits containing personal data one page/ripped off half page at a time. It does confetti shred so you get the increased security. Occasionally I empty the container into a black bag and once that's full I will give it a good shake and start putting a few handfuls in with my normal rubbish. This way, even if someone tried to piece it all together, it's unlikely that they would have all the bits.

One point to consider though... you need to put some pressure on the top of the shredder while turning the handle to stop it from sliding. It can be a bit cumbersome and I think it really needs a handle fitting to make it easier to apply the pressure. If you're perhaps elderly, or if you've got weak arms, you may find it a bit of a strain to have to keep applying pressure to the top each time you shred a page. And I'm not saying that all elderly people have weak arms; my 79 year old father could probably beat me in an arm wrestle... but you know what I mean.

The CD and credit card shredders work well. The CD is cut into three pieces or thereabouts, and credit cards are sliced into four pieces.

I would have given it five stars if it wasn't for the fact that you have to apply pressure during the shred. The fact that it works best when shredding one page at a time was never an issue.
