Minus one star to every shredder from every manufacturer for exaggerating their capacity. No way this shredder can handle 8 sheets of anything but the thinnest rice paper. I put in 6 sheets of junk mail, it started to groan. But the reverse switch worked as intended and nothing jammed.
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.
