I think this product is worth the 50 dollar price range niche it is designed to fill. Unfortunately, it isn't really the "8-sheet microshredder" it is being marketed as. If you really want an "8-sheet microshredder" you'll probably have to pay at least double this model's asking price.
(Edit: I used a digital caliper to check the shredded particle size: 9/64" x 25/64". The width (first number) is more than specified (7/64) for the unit, but the length is to spec. I now believe that the document that may have had too many legible numbers together was probably placed in the shredder sideways - resulting in the numbers lying on the 25/64" dimension. NOTE TO SELF: Always insert documents into this shredder bottom- or top-first, and never on their side!)
Raised rating - have used for a while. Doing its job beautifully.

Like that it's small enough to fit under my desk, it works great for shredding the occasional credit card or bank statement. It can only handle a few pages at a time, but that's fine for a home use case. I would recommend getting something fancier if you are going to be running it continuously in an office or something, but for a home or single person use, it's great.
I finally had the opportunity to unpack my shredder earlier this evening.
Much to my dismay - the base is cracked.
What do you suggest doing? Thank you.
I’d definitely buy again
