Bought this shredder to replace a 10 year-old Staples heavy-duty unit in my home office. Selected the Fellows because of reviews found here and elsewhere on the ’Net. This Fellows shredder is As Advertised! Great value. Super quiet. Efficient. Safe; so safe, I no longer fear my necktie getting caught and dragging me to my demise.ツ
Now, about that ONE complaint, with two suggestions. It centers around the plastic bag for the bin.
 Save your money.
Avoid buying the Fellows bags. Based on the sample bags sent with the shredder, the bags appear to be a bit tougher than most plastic bags, but at 21¢ per bag, there is a cost-effective alternative. For instance, we use ProForce Commercial 7-10 gal. Trash Bags (1000 ct.) that cost less that 3¢ per bag. That is a 18¢ savings per bag!
 Keep the plastic bag from collapsing in the bin.
I did try the Fellows sample bags that came with the unit, but the bags inevitably fell into the bin and were covered-up by the shredded paper; making a bit of a mess when it came time to remove the bag. And because Fellow bags are taller than the bin is deep, there is some product waste. However, if you use a medium-size binder clip (such as: ACCO Binder Clips, Medium, 12 Per Box (72050)) and place them to grab the bag along the top edge of the bin, approximately 1½" from each end (please see my photos), the bag stays up, the shredded paper stays in the bag, and bag removal is clean and simple with no shreds on the shag!
!! P L E A S E N O T E !!
There is one trick to the Binder-Clip fix: When positioning the binder clips over the bag along top edge of the bin, be certain each clip is tilted inward to clear the side walls of the shredder when the bin is pushed back in. If you forget to do this, you will be reminded when the bin fails to go all the way in and the door-open status light atop the shredder glows red.
Basket on new unit is crap. Instead of molded plastic, the new basket is plastic card board held together by push together buttons that have already started to fail after less that 2 weeks.
I highly suggest using the "performance oil" suggested - I squirt a small amount along the top about every 1/2 loads.
Speaking of getting full. It does tend to show that it's full when it actually isn't - doesn't matter, just open and press shreds down. It holds quite a bit. For such a heavy duty shredder, it isn't that noisy. I can watch TV while I shred. I've used it for several months now. I've purchased other lower end shredders that were a pain to use. This one is easy / peasy. Highly recommend.
I have a six-year-old Fellowes SB89Ci which was working perfectly in my very busy home office UNTIL somebody (family) put an envelope through it containing coins, and then used the forward/back buttons to 'clear the jam', ultimately breaking several of the plastic "sweepers" (those white plastic things which among other things separate the blades in the cutter head and also clear paper shards as they try to wrap themselves around the cutter head). As a result, the cutter head now jams frequently and needs serious repair (it still shreds fine - except for a 5-inch gap in the middle). I contacted Fellowes and the model is no longer made AND there are no repair parts available. (Sigh) I did find two different shops who said they could probably repair it, but using one of them would cost me shipping in both directions PLUS the cost of the repair. And the sum of those exceeds the cost of this shredder.
I was EXTREMELY happy with my old shredder and after looking at about a dozen others I "settled on" this one without hesitation. Of course before actually ordering it I read a huge number of reviews of this shredder, and as I prefer to "see it before I buy it" I visited several local office supply stores. However, as it turned out none of them had one in stock to examine, and consequently I ordered this one without my usual pre-purchase inspection. (OK, so I'm extremely careful about anything like this which I buy with the intention of using for several years...)
But after I had ordered it I continued reading even more reviews (here and on many sites) and there was one thing in particular which worried me. Multiple reviewers complained about the collection basket, and at least two of them claimed that it was made out of cardboard. (Fortunately those two were incorrect.)
So as soon as it arrived, I opened the box (which showed no damage) and on inspection I decided that the box must have received some rough handling from the USPS who delivered it. The reason behind my decision was that the head had somehow detached from the body of the shredder. However (and fortunately) after a quick inspection there was no obvious damage, and the two pieces snapped back together just fine.
Then I examined the collection bin and had to laugh. It is made of the same corrugated plastic as the mail tubs used at my office (and the USPS, too IIRC - albeit without their steel rod frame), and it is of a somewhat lighter gauge. But with normal use it should work well in its intended purpose. Also it is a MAJOR improvement over that in my old 89Ci which had a number of sharp protrusions which often caught and tore the collection bags when I tried to remove them. This one does NOT have anything protruding into the collection bin and bags should not catch (or tear) on it.
(On the subject of collection bags, where I live shredded papers which are NOT in transparent bags are frequently not picked up by the recycling truck on "trash day" and I have been using clear, (unbranded) 13-gallon drawstring garbage bags which are a little "over-sized" for this shredder (or my old 89Ci) but which work just fine and cost about $0.125 each in quantity. Amazon has several similar to them - search for "clear drawstring 13-gallon trash bags.")
I will be going over it VERY carefully in the next day or so just to make sure that there was no other problem from its being jarred in shipping (and if there is any, I will be doing an exchange to get another). But so far it looks good, and I have already shredded a pile of office papers and accounting records over a foot high, and at this point the 99Ci is so much better than my old shredder that I am EXTREMELY happy with it.
So far the shredder behaves exactly as it's supposed to and I'm a happy camper. My only minor complaint is that the paper is just a littler harder to get into the slot than it was on my old 89Ci as this one is "thinner" (same width though). But then, had the slot on my old shredder been like the one on this 99Ci, nobody would have been able to put an envelope containing several coins into the shredder, so maybe this is a worthwhile improvement.
Based on my previous experience with the 89Ci (and a couple of other Fellowes shredders at my office) and my initial experience with this one, I would not hesitate to recommend it to family, friends, and co-workers.
(REMINDER: MY CAVEAT STILL STANDS THAT I WILL UPDATE THIS REVIEW IN A COUPLE OF MONTHS WHEN I HAVE HAD A CHANCE TO USE IT EXTENSIVELY. But until then, I am very happy with this shredder.

This model tells you if you've over-stuffed it. Better yet, it tells you if you've UNDER-stuffed it: an indicator light meter reveals how many pages it could handle compared to how many you put in. If the light meter only goes up a couple of bars, that means it's hungry and you need to give it more on your next go-around. This thing even detects if there's any skin touching its gaping maw, in which case it won't operate until safe to do so. Best of all, there's a "do not put a baby in here" interdiction labelled on the side of the aperture.
If you think you can get away with something smaller and cheaper, you might be right...but why would you want to be?
Turns out that AMAZON.CA sold me a machine that is SIX YEARS OLD. I had to cll Fellowes about it and they said the series number matches a machine that is 6 years old. I purchased it thinking it was a new machine.
