SimplyShred FHC512D is Level 3 security shredder. What is the difference between Level 3 and Level 4 security shredders?
This is best illustrated by looking at the output each shredder produces.
I am attaching a photo collage (which can be located by following 'customer photos' link under the main photo) that shows the output of two shredders side by side so you can see how these different security levels compare.
The photo labelled L3-1 shows shredded CD, shredded paper, and shredded credit card from L3 level security shredder (this shredder). Photos labelled L4-1, L4-2, L4-3 show shredded CD, shredded paper, and shredded credit card from L4 level security shredder (SimplyShred PSC310D). You can see that the paper and credit card are shredded into much smaller pieces, CD shreds looks about the same.

I am also attaching a video which SimplyShred FHC512D in action. The video shows the shredder handling 10 sheets of paper, a CD, and a credit card.

FUNCTIONALITY

✔ SimplyShred FHC512D shredder easily handled 10 sheets of paper at once (it is rated up to 12 sheets of paper of 20 lb weight)
✔ It handles CDs and credit cards in addition to paper.
✔ The shredder's operation is fairly quiet and fast. The shredding speed is 8.5 feet per minute. The noise level and speed are best illustrated by the video.

SIZE INFO

✔ This shredder's size is 17" heigh x 13.75" wide x 9.5" front to back
✔ The bucket height is 13". Its capacity is 5 gallons.
✔ The opening of the entry for paper is 8.86". If the paper is wider than the opening the manual instructs the user to fold it, rather than have it crickle on the edges automatically.
✔ The size of shreds produced by this paper is 0.5" x 1.

I was given this item an exchange for an unbiased review of this product. I have owned a Fellows 7 sheet shredder for yeaars, but wanted one that could shred more pages at a time. This item handled 12 pages at once with no strain on the motor. There was even a credit card attached to one of the sheets!

Pros:
Handles 12 sheets at a time
Staples do not need to be removed before shredding
Separte slot for credit cards and DVDs
Crosscut shedding for extra security
Auto Start feature - INset paper and the motor starts automatically
Large collection bin with clear window to see when it is getting full
Handle to remove motor to easily empty the bin
Very quiet motor

Cons:
Slot where papet is inserted is just wide enough for an 8 1/2 inch page so multiple pages must be stacked neatly to fit in

Based on my experience with this item thus far, this shredder will be replacing my Fellows 7 sheet shredder.

I recently bought this shredder. Notes:

- I tested this multiple times with EXACTLY 12 sheets of 8.5X11 copy paper, It jammed every time. Actual rating is 8-10 sheets
- The Amazon description says will shred paper clips. The box, product and instruction manual all say NO PAPER CLIPS

Its a decent light duty shredder but the product description is inaccurate.

I was shocked when I tried this shredder. It is VERY quiet.... so quiet you can still hold a conversation with someone. It ate everything I threw into it. Old checks from a closed account, credit card junk mail and old files. I put about 10 pages into it and it labored, but not to the point of it jamming up. I also shredded a credit card and CD and it ate right up with no problem. I would recommend this shredder in a heart beat. It works great and most of it is really quite. The directions that came with it were very clear. It did say you can oil it by putting oil on a piece of paper in a zig zag pattern then send it through. (Amazon sells the oil. What don't they sell? LOL!)It did not give any indication of the frequency, but I suspect maybe once or twice a year would be sufficient. Maybe once every six months.(?) If you have any questions, feel free to leave one and I'll be glad to help you out. You won't go wrong with this shredder.

For the amount paid for this product, you would expect that the cards or CD's were shredded into smaller pieces, the CD's ok, no biggie, but the cards still show viable information anyone can piece together and get the numbers, it cuts both cards and CD's in like big square chunks instead of small shredded pieces. No protection of privacy here which was the whole idea to begin with.

Works quite well. Faster than the one I burned up and quiet. Will take staples as advertised. Once you get past 6-7 sheets though it does slow down some.

Need to edit this review. Just burned this baby up in 10 months. Not durable enough for everyday use. If you constantly feed this thing more than a few sheets at a time...It shows its true colors.

Should be a "Very light duty" product...not something you get for everyday use.

Product was received within 3-4 days of ordering. As with other shredders indicates it will shred 12 pages but in reality count on it being more like 6 and slowly at that - that is disappointing. Probably would not purchase again.
