Good quality shredder. Careful with what weight papers you are putting through it though. I had some 32 lb bond and was running 6 sheets at a time. It was struggling, but I figured...hey, it's rated for 6 sheets. Kept going. Heard a pop. These things have sintered metal and punched gears in them. I'm sure that one of them either broke or popped loose from a drive shaft, because I could hear something big and heavy rattling around inside after. Fortunately, it was replaced for free, as I had only recently purchased it, along with the extended equipment protection plan. I'm careful with paper weights and quantities of sheets now. Heavier paper = 4 sheets. Regardless, it's quick, and produces good quality micro shredding. Great for my worm compost bin.
