Destroys Credit Cards
Inserted one at a time into the designated area of the shredder, credit cards are completely destroyed, offering valuable peace of mind.
In auto mode, shredding begins once the sensor detects something to be shredded. Shredded paper then drops into the 3.8-gallon bin below, and manual reverse makes easy work of clearing any paper jams.
The cross-cut shredder will run continuously for 2 minutes before needing a 30-minute cool-down. If it shreds continuously beyond the max running time and begins to overheat, the unit will automatically shut off to protect the motor.
Perfect for light use in a small business or home office, the cross-cut shredder conveniently fits under a desk or other workstation for easy access throughout the day. Even more, the shredder removes effortlessly when it's time to empty the bin.

This is a smaller shredder with a smaller capacity waste bucket that the shredder mounts on top of. you can use a plastic bag inside to catch all the waste. It is a standard crosscut that cuts thin short strips, but not as fine as the micro-cut. It was able to cut 6 pages of 20lb paper without any problem, but it slows a little to do so- no big deal. It seems like it has good power and might be able to do more in a single pass, but I don't want to chance this- that is what the bigger shredder is for.
My impression is that this small shredder will fit the intended purpose for light duty use- a couple of papers here and there. It is priced at a steal of a deal at $30, especially if you have amazon prime and the thing ships to you in 2 days or less- shipping along on a similar package would cost about $12 bucks by UPS Ground...not Second Day Air. If you have a bunch of shredding to do, consider the bigger shredder- AmazonBasics 12-Sheet High Security Micro-Cut Paper/CD/Credit Card Shredder with Pullout Basket. That thing is like a paper grinder- works well and makes a neater generated paper waste that pours out of the can.

After being a victim of identity theft I vowed to minimize my identity footprint by shredding anything that has any of my information on it. I have owned a couple of paper shredders over the years and this one so far has been my best one yet. I use it to shred junk mail, credit cards, and personal/ legal documents with ease. I was intrigued that Amazon had its own brand shredder (pictures shown).
The items you run into the machine are diagonally cross cut instead of the straight line cutting (pictures attached). Anyone with time on their hands can sit down and place all of your straight line cut documents back together which is why I recommend you stick to the diagonally cross cut feature at the least - which this one offers. Micro-cutting is the ultimate feature to have. Six pages at a time is no problem. If you do happen to jam it or it slows down because you added to many pages at one time it does have a reverse switch. It also has a safety feature that only allows the shredder to work when it is properly placed on the can - safety for yourself and any little ones. Do you have a fireplace or fire-pit? You can also easily use the shredded paper to create paper logs - Amazon sells a paper log maker.
Update: 15FEB17. No problems with the product or its quality. I used gun oil to lubricate the blades and still working great.

Great deal on a cross-cut general purpose shredder. In this day and age, there is no excuse for not making sure your personal information is secure. No paper/junk mail/etc goes in my trash without going through this shredder first.
The third party company was willing to send a replacement but requires me to take care of the shipping cost to ship my current item to their center (probably a norm). But I don't think it's worth spending $10+ for an unit that costs $30 and taking the risk of owning another unit of the same product.
Would never buy this item -- probably another AmazonBasics -- again.
