Did its purpose right, for about 6 months. Theres 3 settings, auto (when you stick paper in it turns on automatically and turns off automatically, off, and reverse for when you have jams. One morning i woke up and found my machine running by itself and SUPER hot. CLearly it turned on automatically when i was asleep and i didnt hear or see it until i walked into my garage which is where i keep it. Definite fire hazard in my opinion given theres a huge deposit of kindle (shredded paper) beneath this. now i have to just keep on off and turn on when i need to use it. Great feature on paper for the design team i think, but given it doesnt work properly its actually more dangerous in my opinion.. works, but not correctly.
