This little guy packs a big punch! I have used it to shred whole pieces of mail without even opening them and credit cards. It was able to handle both without any trouble. Due to its small size it isn't great for shredding stacks of paper, so it is better for the once in a while user. I attached some photos to give you a better idea of the size. I give this 5 stars because the manufactures description is spot on and the price-to-value-ratio can’t be beat.
I prefer the small size because I find the big shredders hideous. This I can hide away and bring out when I need it. I posted some pictures of relative size of the shredder. It has a clear bin which shows if it is full. It turns on, but only operates when paper is fed through the slot. It must be folded along the long axis, otherwise it does not fit. I haven't tried to test the full power of this device because I have no need to, I am not bulk shredding. The resulting pieces are nice and small and only the most diligent of criminal would attempt to reconstruct these papers..
In the manual it states that one should "never shred plastic, continuous forms, anything with adhesive including labels and envelopes, newsprint or any hard materials. while this shredder will shred staples, it is recommended that you remove them whenever possible in order to extend the life of your shredder. only shred credit cards by feeding them vertically within the designated area. never feed more than on credit card at a time."
I will update this review as I continue to use this product!
This is really tiny but it pretty much said so in the description. A bit of a pain because the shredding slot is not big enough for a full page to go through, you have to fold and even then some sheets are still too wide. You will end up having to tear some sheets of paper to make them fit because of the two page capacity. The bucket is also very small so keep a bag handy to empty it out.
If you do a lot of regular shredding this is not the shredder for you, spend $10 more and get a real one. For me, it will work once I catch up and start doing it a few days a week right as the mail is in.
I would give it 3 1/2 stars if that were possible, because of the slot. I think that's a design flaw. The rest is ok because they do tell you it's a personal shredder and you can't expect an office size one. I will also go as far as saying that it could be better priced for what you're getting. Other than that, it does the job.
So, I picked those out (which was a little difficult) and it was good to use again! I found out that most household shredder oil is just repackaged canola oil, so I'm giving my little guy a break until my next shopping trip. But I think after a bit of that, this thing will be back in top shape again.
I think I got mine from some credit card reward program and shortly after bought one on Amazon for my now wife. This was about 3 years ago, IIRC. She hasn't had trouble with hers either.
