I just received my shredder 6 days earlier than was expected and was excited. I started using it right away destroying those annoying credit card offers unopened. It chewed through it like nothing and to top it off it is a much quiet shredder then most I have purchased. I ran it for about 10 minutes straight with bundles as big as 12 papers and not once did the overheat light go on. Also I shredded a few old credit cards and useless cds with no problem. I was a little skeptical at first at buying this unit due to the lack of reviews but wow I'm happy I did. Don't hesitate, give it a try =)

**The comment below brought to my attention that in the description there was no mentioning of a overheat light...so I posted some pictures up top along with the others so that you can verify it yourself if needed.

First off, this shredder is amazingly quiet. I have owned a few other brands of shredders over the past few years, and they were all loud. Another thing that I like about this shredder is that it is not messy. The head lift-up design on this shredder prevents shreds from falling all over the place. The shredders with pull-out design are usually the ones that make a mess.

One issue I encountered was that when I received this shredder, the plastic front window snap-in piece had one of the clips broken. Nevertheless, it still snapped in place fine. The manufacturer needs to be more careful with their quality control.

I admit I'm pretty hard on paper shredders - I've burned up two already, jammed a motor with a staple in another, and needed a new one. This one was a great price. Because of my prior experiences with shredders, I was pleased this one came with a larger bin and a handy overheating warning light. It has happily munched loads of junk mail (no need to remove staples!) and credit cards and never checked up. Surprisingly, I have yet to overheat it either. A great find! I've been so pleased with it that I recommended it to my dad, and he enjoys his too. He especially appreciates that it is super quiet. I find it much quieter than any previous shredder I've ever used.

The Comet CM-C-100 is very quiet and does shred the documents, papers, credit cards, etc. very well and to our expectations. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a well-made product that does the job right without a hassle.

Good shredder for the money. It is good for small office and home shredding.
I like the cross cut shredding of CD's.

As far as shredders go, this one is reasonably quiet. You won't find a shredder that is silent. If you think about what it is doing, you will understand that. It does shred papers easily, but I get the feeling it is not for extended periods of CD shredding. It is very loud when shredding a DVD, and as one reviewer mentioned, it does tend to jam easily while doing this. I had some extra DVD slide shows to shred which contained personal photos, but it took a few days as I did not push it by trying to do too many at once. It was very loud and kept flashing the overheated light, so I would cut it back to five or less at once. It is very heavy in comparison to others, but that is to be expected I guess. I take mine outside to empty as I do not want to drop the sharp pieces from the DVDs on the floor where my dogs could get to them.
If you are mainly going to shred papers, this one is great for that but not for extended periods of CD or DVD shredding. It's nice to not worry about removing staples too. It certainly helps fill in for my small shredder when the filing cabinet needs an overhaul. I gave it just three stars as it seems to be working a bit harder than it should when in constant use. I am careful not to exceed the page limit, or time frame. I do not have a regular jobs to use this with, just an occasional file update, and a stray DVD or two. For those jobs, it works fine.

As others have indicated, the feed slot is narrow and not very forgiving, yet the paper feeds in just fine, it's just a bit more difficult/intimidating to get started. When shredding, the shredder makes a chugging noise, a completely "normal" sound for this shredder and I suppose that is partly why it is less noisy than other machines. It also may account for its somewhat slower speed. I don't like the fact that the basket does not have a lip by which to grab it to dispose the cut paper (an Aurora I owned did have a lip and this feature makes the basket easier to handle). This motor on this shredder is much heavier than the old shredder I had, yet, functionally doesn't seem to have that vast an improvement to justify it's increased weight.

I cannot say if I would recommend this Comet CM-C-100 shredder or not. Initial function is good and it shreds paper in smaller bits than the Aurora though insignificantly so (they were both cross-cut type). This machine does not seem to get as clogged as the older shredder either and the basket is larger.

My biggest concern for these shredders is longevity--the plastic clip which held the rod which activated a switch when paper was fed thru, broke on my previous shredder. I fixed it a couple of times but once broken, it continued to be a weak spot. If this construction is similar, I expect the same will happen after a few years.
