This is a REAL confetti shredder. The pieces are very fine and much smaller than other brands that claim to be confetti shredders. (Compare the shred sizes!)

Anything else I have found with such small shreds has been much more than twice the price. Smaller shreds mean more security and less time between emptying the basket, because the shreds take up less room per page.

Works very quickly and efficiently, and I have not found this to be much louder than other comparable shredders.

I have used 13 gallon bags to catch the shreds in the basket. This makes cleaning out the shreds much easier and neater.
------------
Warning: The plastic on the unit base is a little thin and brittle. I have had a few cracks. The heavy shredder head should be put gingerly back onto the base when emptying, and once when I rolled the unit over a door threshold and the wheel broke loose because the base plastic cracked - so be very careful!
-----------
Functionally this is great unit.

I wanted a microshredder for disposing of a lot of personal documents following my mother's death. The Aurora AS1040C does an excellent job of microshredding. However,I was disappointed to find that it consistently stops working due to overheating after 10 to 15 minutes of continuous use. Once it overheats it takes awhile to cool off to the point where it will work again. By contrast, I own an inexpensive strip cut shredder that works virtually nonstop for hours. The Aurora AS104C also lacks credit card or CD/DVD shredding capability, but I like being able to roll it easily. If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive microshredder that you don't expect to consistently keep in use for more than 5 or 10 minutes at a time, then you'll probably be happy with the Aurora AS104C.

Works great. Shredding into "Confetti shreds" are much better than the "strip shreds" because you can fit alot more of it into bags. The large receptacle is nice: no need to empty as often. Unfortunately this shredder is SUPER LOUD which is annoying for a small office like mine. That knocks it down from 5 to 3 stars.

UPDATE - February 11, 2014: My original review below was written July 31, 2010. Now, after owning this shredder for five years, I am pleased to report that it still works as well as when I first received it.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

I have used this shredder for 5 months and am entirely satisfied with it. It is the only micro shredder I could find in its price range that could handle 10 sheets at a time (which it actually does). I don't understand why, if you are going to bother to buy a shredder and shred documents, you would use a strip shredder which does not provide as high a level of security.

To be clear, this is not a true confetti shredder, since the strips are 9/25 inch long, but that's pretty close to confetti.

One nice design feature is that you feed sheets in vertically, that is, you place up to 10 sheets in the opening and drop them in! Unlike my last shredder, which fed horizontally, you do not have to hold them for a few seconds until the shredder grasps them securely.

It's hard to describe noise quality and level in writing. All I can say is that the Aurora is not as noisy as my last shredder. Unlike the constant roar of the old one, the Aurora makes a rhythmic "chug-chug" sound as it devours the paper. It does not bother me at all for the brief periods that I use the shredder. FWIW, I would rate its loudness as moderate. No one in adjoining offices has ever commented on the noise.

I don't think I have ever run this shredder for more than 10 minutes at a time, so I have not encountered overheating. (If you have boxes full of documents, as described by one reviewer, it's faster and cheaper to take them to a document destruction place; for a higher fee, mine destroys the documents while I watch.

this sucker is heavy. The packing is so nice ,, cut the tape off and slide the top off and the shredder is on the floor with no lifting... YES it is about 30 pounds.. It is quiet but I have neighbors below so I use it during the day only. Shredder leaves tiny pieces. It is worth the money. you probably don't need a micro shredder but I love them. Most micro shredders over heat and can't take non-stop all day feeding. I use this for my bills. At the end of the week I feed in the stack in about a minute. My last micro burned up from over heating so I learned use it for a min or two and stop. If it doesn't get hot it will never melt or burn out. I LIKE this!

I am very happy with my purchase of this shredder.
It really confetti shreds my documents. I am so much more at ease knowing that it would be impossible to garner any information from the shredded pieces. It does have quite a low rumbling sound to it. But considering the price and the excellent shredding it does, I don't mind the noise. Unlike others, I have had no jamming problems or any problems at all. Treat it well and it will return the favor.

This shredder has provided good service for more than a year. The capacity is just right for me. The occasional jams, which are caused when I misjudge the number of pages, recover easily. All parts seem very sturdy and I feel it will last for years to come.
