other reviewers have mentioned that the paper must be placed from the SIDE and not the TOP of the shredding-feeder. Nothing against anyone else's opinion, but this is actually an IMPROVEMENT over most micro-cut shredders. Other units have a tiny slit at the feeder mechanism, making it a chore just to align the paper to be shredded.

If you have 8 sheets or less just jam them in and the shredder will do the rest. Other reviewers have said that the paper needs to be aligned properly. I'm a doctor, and we use this at the reception area.ALL DAY LONG. If the paper goes in sideways, the shredder pulls it in and shreds it completely. If you shred only one piece of paper at a time, I will agree there is some resistance from the unit - what we do is just fold it over to create a more sturdy document.

It's a great shredder for the money. It can take a doctor's office's receptionist shredding 4-5 sheets every few minutes. It's powerful, and secure. You know you need it. Get it, and forget it.

Useful tip - use plastic grocery bags as a liner in the bin to catch the clippings. Makes for much easier emptying. Most shredders these days don't allow this because there must be a TIGHT seal of the lid or the unit won't run. In this unit's case, the bin is SEPARATE from the catch-switches that would create this problem. Good deal.

ANOTHER USEFUL TIP: Use some type of light oil on the shredder 'teeth' every now and again. I Use WD-40, and it works just fine as anything else. If you don't oil it and it is geting heavy use, it can start to misbehave and jam up. :-)

UPDATE 20-NOV-13 - started using the 3-in-1 oil last week instead of WD40, and it works much, much better. With the WD40, I was hearing some more noise coming from the unit after a day or 2 - with the 3-in-12 oil, there is NO EXCESS noise.

I have bought and used many shredders over the past 10 years between personal and business use. I have learned a few things (the hard way) so now I apply what I have learned to all shredders. They all over heat if you use them continuously, so with any shredder use it here and there and never constantly. I know this can be difficult when you have stacks to shred, but do yourself a favor and just shred a small amount several times throughout the day. Whatever the sheet max is, divide by two. Also annoying, I know, but it's easier on the shredder and you decrease chances that you'll get a paper jam.

So, now about this shredder. I have had it for a several days now and so far I love it. My basic qualifications were cross cut and shredding CDs/DVDs. I did hours of research and decided on this one because of the generally good reviews. It was also the only model that shredded CDs/DVDs that was at a price that I felt was reasonable. The fact that it is mircocut is a bonus. It works very well. The first day I shredded 15 CDs and it worked with ease. Since then I have been working on a 2 inch stack of papers. I shred 4-5 pages at a time for a minute or less continuously. It doesn't feel hot or seem to strain at all. The only con I can see at this point is how you feed the paper. Its feeds in at an angle, to prevent fingers, ties, hair, etc from getting caught. I see the point, but it takes me and extra second or two to get the paper in, which gets annoying.

Overall, if you want a good shredder for mircocut and CDs/DVDs and you don't shred too much this is a good choice.

1/2/14 Update - I've had this shredded for almost a year now and it gets frequent home use. I still love it! Great product!

The shredder was packaged very well, using pressed cardboard to secure the shredder in the shipping box. Less plastic, which is great. I didn't attach the wheels, in a single office, there's no need to wheel it around. The CD/DVD slot and the credit card slot works very well on shredding those items. I have a bit of trouble getting the paper to 'catch' in the rollers, I have to push it in. Once in, it does shred paper easily and does handle six pages at a time. I found eight to be a bit iffy. So - it's OK. I don't have high volume to shred so I'm satisfied with it. The basket pull out feature makes emptying very easy, as you don't have to remove the heavy ( very heavy) shredding lid. If you need something for more volume shredding I'd recommend another model.

I have had this exact shredder for about 4 years now and it works great, though I'd have to agree with other reviewers on the 8 sheets. It will do it BUT it is very slow and grinding to accomplish it. The instruction manual with mine said to "lubricate" the tines occasionally. There is a specific oil you can buy for shredders, but I have been using sewing machine oil for years with no problem. I take a single piece of 8.5x11 paper and run 3 lines of oil across it near the top, bottom and middle of the paper. I let that soak into the paper for a few seconds then run it through the shredder by itself. If I am doing a lot of shredding, I do it toward the beginning if it has been a while since I lubricated it. The very last piece of paper that I shred will have oil on it anytime I lubricate it. I even throw an extra one in about halfway through if I am doing a lot of shredding. I have shredded for 20-30 minutes with no issues as long as I kept the paper quantity to about 4 pages and kept it lubricated. You can't expect any shredder this size and cuts paper this small to continuously shred large quantities of paper for 15-20 minutes with no lubrication, without overheating. Because this shreds it so finely I throw it in my compost bin when it is full, though I make sure I haven't shredded anything like a credit card.
