Other observations: The grip area at the top makes this far less awkward to remove from it's waste bin than my older machine. With respect to capacity, so far I have yet to bog it down. The practical sheet capacity is about as expected; that is about 1/2 to 2/3 of the "rating" because most everything I typically have to shred is heavier than 20lb so I generally only feed 2-3 sheets at a time which slows it down just a little with 24lb or heavier stock. About the only negatives I have so far that knocked 1 star off are: due to the shape of the waste container, I worry about it being tipped over by the dog but I solved that by tucking it in between a printer stand and a small storage unit and secondly, the feed slot is just barely over 8.5 inches wide so you have to "aim" more than my old machine to feed it. This is my first experience with the Aurora brand so only time will tell, but so far I am very pleased especially given the price I paid..
Other than that, it's a great product for the price. We've only put 50 pages through it so far, but the shreds are so tiny it makes strip shredders look silly. Take a look at the photo-tiny shreds.
Offers high security for your important documents when you push them thru that machine.
There are 4 levels of security for shredders. This shredder is on Level 3 which is high enough to destroy all evidences on your documents. You don't need level 4 security which is diamond cut. Micro cut is all you might need and that's it.
Not too expensive. Not too small not too big just right size.
It has power to work with envelopes from banks and credit cards at once. It struggles a little bit but it will go thru with full packed envelope.
It's noisy too. You can hear on the video. But even noise is nothing to worry about unless you will you is during all day every day. Once in a while is not a problem at all.
Micro-cut is a must, otherwise it kind of defeats having a shredder. But many micro-cut shredders are either way too low-volume (overheats quickly) or too large (for commercial use). This is a nice size for placing it under table or desk. It is a medium-volume use. You could go through several hundred pages, but then it has to cool-down for several minutes. So it is not for people that shred tons of paper all at once.
It is nice that it has a narrow basket. Most shredders have more square-ish pull-out basket, whereas this one has narrow one which makes it easy to dump the content into a small trash bag without spilling. I dump into a grocery paper bag so the whole thing can be thrown into paper recycling dumpster.
If you shred more than a ream of paper at a time, then get a larger one at a local office supplier. Otherwise this is a nice unit.
BTW, mine stopped working after about 10 months. The motor would stop after a few seconds of turning on. The customer service was excellent and they shipped a new one without the hassle of sending the old one back.

Fuera de ese detalle, el cual no me agrado en lo más mínimo, funciona bien.
