I use this shredder for normal personal use, although I am confident it would work well for small business use also. This is the second unit I've purchased. The first one lasted about 7 years. The only reason I had to replace it is we inserted too many pages at once and the cutter jammed to the point I could not free it. It's rated to handle up to 11 pages at once, would should suffice for most applications. It also handles staples, cd/dvd and credit cards well. When researching for a new shredder, I found this unit to still be the best, most durable unit available for the money. The ONLY con is it tends to be a bit noisy when in operation. About the vendor (Adorama): This is the 1st time I've purchased from them and must say the experience was fantastic! Their price was better than anyone else and their email communication was perfect. They confirmed my order, let me know when it shipped, provided a tracking number, the product arrived quickly and was packaged beautifully. I would not hesitate to do business with them again. Well done!
This shredder is so much better to use than those where the top is removed to empty. There is no better choice for a personal shredder.
I have 3 of these and the oldest is 7 years old. I like the visibility thru the basket screen to tell how full it is. The screen basket empties easily into plastic bags for recycle. This is the best shredder that I have ever had.
I have 3 of these and the oldest is 7 years old and all are still going strong. I like the tip out basket to discard junk mail that doesn't need to be shredded. The basket is screen is easy to see through to determine how full it is and it empties very easy into bags with out a mess on the floor with little caution. If any of mine breakdown I will definitely be buying another one just like these.
