Bought four years ago. Worked fine, so long as I didn't try to put too much paper through it. Knowing the limits, there are still times I ended up putting too much thickness into the shredder. It would slow/stop and I'd remove the offending thickness and proceed. About 6 months ago it ground to a halt and nothing I do will make it run again. I even, against all label warnings, disassembled the shredding unit to try to find the problem. No paper remains in the unit, no overheating, also no reset button. I have a good-size piece of junk to now toss in the trash. It's a small thing, this shredder, in the larger scheme of waste, but I'll buy something different this time in hope that it will last a decade or more. I shouldn't have to toss this much simple machinery so soon.
