Update 11-28-15 - In addition to the problem with the bin not seating properly, the machine isn't able to feed 16 sheets at once as advertised. You can feed maybe 6 or 7 at once. Also, the shredder gets really hot and overheats way more than it should - and I'm using the machine correctly. Several times the machine shut down for overheating. I waited the 30 minutes or so until the overheating light went out and then began shredding again. Within 5 minutes the machine shut down again for overheating! We have several Fellowes shredders at work (Industrial ones) and they're great, that's why when I went to buy a home shredder I chose Fellowes. But I'm really disappointed in the performance of this particular model.
EDIT: BROKE on December 19th! I can't press the button anymore! It has sunk down into the printer and cannot be pried back up so it is UNUSABLE!!!! I am so upset! I spent a lot of money on this and my Walmart shredder worked much longer than this!
I've always hated most shredders which are typically just a glorified trash can with a shred motor resting on the top. To me, those just look tacky and are not designed well since you have to lift a heavy motor off the bin in order to empty it, placing the dirty motor on the carpet or floor. This shredder is different in that it's more of an all-in-one design.
- Secure 'cross-cut' shred
- A lot quieter than most due to an induction motor, which is important in an office environment and even at home-I can shred in the middle of the night and not wake up others in the house. Compared to other shredders, it's almost amazing how quiet this one is-very elegant, yet seems to function just as well as others if not better.
- Looks cooler than other shredders.
- Comes with wheels that you can install to make it easy to move around. I wheel it from my home office, into a closet fairly regularly if I'm having guests over for example.
- Has great safety features and indicator LEDs.
- Can shred CDs/DVDs as well as credit cards in addition to up to 14 pieces of paper at once.
- Pricey, but worth it since it's a cut above other cheaper ones.
- A bit on the large side and fairly heavy, but fairly easily stow-able in a closet, especially if you install the included wheels. I do wish it was slightly smaller though.
If you are on the fence about spending this much on a shredder, I would recommend you go for it. Although it may be more than you would like to spend, this will pay for itself in ease of use and gracefulness over the years.
But whatever you do, make sure you do get a cross-cut shredder, your security is at stake!
Note- this draws about 1.2 watts when not in use with the rear switch on. It draws zero energy with the rear switch off.
However, other than the frequent over heating and the smoke which led our management to require us to have fire extinguishers nearby, the shredder did not jam once. It ate all of the staples.
Our only other problem is that the forward rewind buttons no longer work as they stopped functioning 2 or 3 years ago.
This shredder would be great in a home office but I would suggest something bigger and faster for those evidence eliminating binge sessions
