Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Shredder:

Cut Type

With Identity Theft concerns at an all-time high, the need to protect personal information is more important than ever. And these days, it's no longer just what you shred that matters--it's how small you shred it. Shredders with a smaller cut size will help keep your information secure long after you dispose of the particles. The smaller the cut size, the higher the security level.

Ideal for: Non-confidential documentsIdeal for: Credit/College Applications, Insurance papers, Junk mailIdeal for: Medical Records, Employee/HR Files, Bank/Financial StatementsIdeal for: Top Secret or Classified Government Documents

If you shred confidential documents, choose Cross-Cut or smaller. A smaller cut size also means you will empty the bin less frequently.

Productivity

Shredder productivity goes beyond mere sheet capacity or speed. When shopping for a shredder, consider the machine's throughput, or the efficiency with which it can get the job done. Throughput combines the three most critical features that contribute to a shredder's performance:

Sheet Capacity x Speed (feet per minute) x Duty Cycle = Throughput

For example, a shredder with a speed of 8.2 feet per minute (FPM), may seem more productive than one that shreds at only 7 FPM. After all, it's a faster machine! But as the example below illustrates, Shredder B is actually three times more productive than Shredder A, due to a longer duty cycle. This means you can get more done at one time, so you can quickly move on with your day.

ModelSheet CapacityxSpeedxDuty Cycle*=Throughput
Shredder A12x8.2 FPMx3 minutes=295
Shredder B15x7 FPMx10 minutes=1,050

It's simple design works very well and is quite efficient.

The manufacturer's customer support told me to trash it, and they would send out a new one; it never worked.

I've had this shredder for 3 months and it has performed very well during that time up until I used for shredding a large volume of end-of-year papers that I no longer needed. The shredder simply stopped shredding. I had no hint that the end was near... The shredder green light comes on, the shredder motor still works in reverse mode, but does not accept paper from the top shred slot.

Other than that, a couple of things to consider before buying this model:

+ Looks great. The styling is great. It does not have the "heavy" industrial look of so many shredders.

+ Shreds credit cards easily. With all the credit card offers I get, this is a handy feature.

- For light shredding only. If you have a need for volume shred runs, I would look for a more capable machine (as I am right now).

- The basket needs to be properly seated or the shredder won't work. It's not obvious when the basket is not properly seated, so give it a jiggle if your shredder light isn't on.

! Be sure to unload the basket before it gets full near the top, or you'll be cleaning up confetti shred on the floor.

Summary: I liked the shredder quite a bit, but am disappointed that it has gone dark on me. I'll report back if I can get it to run again, or with the info of which shredder replaced this one.

Followup report:
I contacted Fellowes and they are replacing my DS-1. They said it cannot run for more than 5 minutes without cooling down or the controller card will burn out due to overload.

I told them they need to do a better job of advising consumers that this 5 minute limit is critical. Their response is that this is covered in the manual.

We bought this after watching a review on the local television channel. Every inexpensive cross shredder we've had (and we've had several) only lasted a few months. We shred a lot and need something that is fast, efficient, and reliable at a reasonable price. So far this seems to be it!

January 2010 update - Almost 4 years after we bought this, it still works, and we use it a lot. I sometimes do dumb things like try to shred too many sheets at once. This is the most forgiving shredder I've ever had, better even than the very expensive fancy one at work. Still looks brand new too.

I had a lot of year end papers to go through and decided to purchase a confetti shredder to help prevent identity theft. I gathered up a bunch of papers to be shredded and tested out my new shredder. I love it. You have to remove the styrofoam wedged between the unit and the removeable can first, plug it in, test that the safety light works and then it's good to go. I was going through all my year end papers for about 4 hours, shredding large amounts of papers while I went - the shredder never gave out on me once. I counted out 11 pages and it shreds them easily, albeit a little slower than it would shred 1 piece. I'm not sure what the limit of it is, but it was chewing up big handfuls of paper, staples, credit cards, all with ease. Didn't jam up or have any problems. I like how simple and reliable it is to use. The next few days after that, my boyfriend has been using it a lot as he went through his year end papers without any problems either.

I do have 2 small complaints. Small, meaning - they don't bother me and would not deter me from buying this product again.

1. It's still messy - but that may just be the nature of the beast. It's a LOT less messy than the shredders where you have to lift off the motor to empty the paper bin (I MUCH prefer this style). When you're shredding, the bin holds everything nicely, but when you're emptying out the bin, expect to have to vacuum a little afterwards.

2. There was a little rubber pad that was glued onto the base - I'm assuming it was a nonskid rubber pad for the bin to rest on - well that promptly came unglued and I just tossed it. Still, it would have been nice if it was more securely fastened.

What I like about it:

1. It's a good price.

I made the mistake of puchasing a couple of the cheaper shredders in the past. I figured that I could get away with it since I don't shred that many items. After learning my lesson and having those ones break down on me, I finally looked into a better quality shredder with a little more strength and shredding capability. I purchased this shredder (the Fellowes DS-1) and it is worth every penny!

My criteria were:

1. A shredder with a slide-out wastebasket.

I don't like having to pull off the (usually heavy) top portion of a shredder in order to empty it. I prefer the slide-out basket style of the DS-1. Due to the large basket and smaller shred cuts, the DS-1 step can has tons of capacity before you have empty it. I find that it is easier to use and empty without lining with a plastic bag, but it's up to you.

2. Ability to shred mail (i.e. tons credit card offers!) immediately without having to open it.

The DS-1 performs effortlessly, even at a continuous pace. It never seems to strain and is pleasantly quiet. Not silent of course, but much less noisy than previous shredders I've had. It also handles credit cards, small paper clips, and staples with ease. I also purchased some shredding lubricant oil for the cutters and use it as directed.

I'm extremely happy with this shredder and use it daily to shred items any personal information on it as well as all of the junk mail I receive daily. It handles the shredding effortlessly and I don't have to empty it out every time I use it. Plus, the unit looks really nice in the room! Not one of my initial criteria but it certainly helps!
