I had two large boxes of papers to shred and dreaded the task but with the help of this shredder, I got the job completed within three hours. After my husband passed away, I found two boxes of papers and old documents...some from the 1980's....that needed to be shredded. Even though this was a higher-priced shredder, I bought it

I bought this to replace my dying Royal cross-cut model, which is loud & has issues pulling in items to shred after 14 years; it was nice to upgrade to a higher security level that promised to be quieter. The AU1210MA is much quieter, that gets 5 *; however, I noticed after 15-minutes of shredding during a less than 40-minute session

I previously owned a FELLOWES paper shredder, cross-cut style and that attached over its own bin / basket; a medium duty, medium PRICE item, that overheated (as expected to do) after operating for 15 solid minutes of use. It only took 2 sheets of paper, at a time, and after 10 years (light to medium use, for junk MAIL) the motor still

So far so good. It is quiet, and seems powerful. Shreds the paper to tiny pieces.I lined the basket with a clear transparent 10 gallon trash bag (available from Costco) so when emptying these tiny pieces don't fly all over the place.

I just destroyed this overpriced shredder by attempting to shred a credit card in it . The card is firmly embedded in the gears and cannot be retrieved.Yes, I've had the shredder since March 1918, during that time, shredded three baskets worth of paper -- lubricating the gears when I emptied the baskets. This is the first time that I

My micro-cut paper shredder started acting up recently, struggling to shred anything more than two sheets at a time and even stopping part way through shredding. I was a little skeptical about these shredder sharpening and lubricant sheets but I decided to give these a try figuring it was worth a shot and a lot cheaper than buying a new

For your safety, please do not buy these sharpening sheets. I was using the Amazon sharpening sheets with an Amazon basics paper shredder and it ignited and literally blew up.

Price point is great for all the things it shreds including dossiers, DVDs of pee pee videos, bribes from the Russians, you name it. I'd really like to shred the NetGear WIFI Extender with it, which was a piece of junk from Amazon that ate up my whole day with tech support.

Quiet, efficient, and effective at shredding credit cards. Everything ends up in little tiny bits. I read a lot of reviews before I tried this one for my home office, and I add my praise to the other positive reviews. I have had it about 10 months.

I've had this just under a month now. Bought it to replace my old straight cut machine that finally bit the dust after many years of service. I have to admit that even though I had seen the dimensions when I ordered it, I was a little shocked at how small it actually looks out of the box. No worries though since the micro cut shreds

This shredder is a hard worker! I have it in a construction cite. Dropped it, pushed it, dust all over: it works! Has been tested over and over. I liked the price and the fact that it did not come with a bucket, but fits on top of a bucket that I had at home with the use of an adjustable extension attached to the shredder. Why add more

When our parents passed away, we had quite a volume of documents that needed to be shredded. Most was not super high security stuff but personal enough to warrant shredding.I chose this shredder mainly because it was inexpensive and it is made to fit over any wastebasket and so its more compact than the clunky often heavy one-piece

I’ve had a Fellowes Shredder before years ago and it was great. Trying to save some pennies, I bought a cheap one from Amazon Basics and it overheated and stopped working after a month. That’s what I get for not spending the extra money and investing in a REAL heavy duty shredder.I love this shredder and look forward to shredding

This shredder is about the size of a carry-on suitcase. It micro-cuts the paper in a way that is extremely secure and non-identifiable. It has a spectacular safety feature that when your hand gets too close to the paper-feeding entrance it stops shredding. This machine eats up multiple sheets at once with ease and it's acceptably quiet.

This shredder has some features that others lack. It lets you know when the bin is nearly full so you can have a new bag ready and it let's you know when you are near a cool down period. I have had it about a week and shredded a few thousand pages (I was backed up) without a glitch. It never neared the cool down phase. It just kept

I bought this oil when I purchased my shredder, and at first I was using it on a regular basis to lubricate the machine, and the machine was working great.

I've had a cross-cut shredder for years and like almost all shredders the makers and the instructions say you can use grocery store bought canola oil as a regular lubricant.

This honestly is the most convenient way to keep your paper shredder maintained. All you have to do is pull one out of the pack and run the sealed cleaning sheet directly to the shredder.

This is a quite nice machine. Very basic yet built tough to do the job. The first job I had for this shredder was a ten inches pile of documents and several closed documents, some quite thick ones.

PROS: I want to cover first the high-quality and well-built aspects of this paper shredder. I’ve seen other reviews I personally think the garbage can (bottom portion/ container) is well-built.

I've crunched through about 500 CD's/DVD's and several hundred papers and it is still working like it did on day one.If you get to aggressive or run it too fast for too long it will shut itself off for 8-10 minutes until it completely cools down.

Does not have a long enough slot for standard envelopes. Here's the thing. If you like to shred the obvious credit card offers that come in your mail without wasting time opening them, they won't fit in the slot for them to be shredded horizontally.

Not much to say other than that these are good. They do the job. My shredder has been working overtime in recent months and these keep it in good shape.

Wow! I was really impressed after using one of these how much of a difference it made. My shredder was old and used A LOT, and was starting to jam all the time even well within it's 10 page limit, popped one of these sheets through and it has significantly decreased the paper jams. So glad for this

The sheet is essentially a packet filled with lubricating oil. Well, the first sheet I used shot lubricating oil into the air. Most of it, probably a bit less than a teaspoon full, landed back on the shredder so cleanup was manageable. I am hoping this is a fluke. Update: ran a sheet through a different paper shredder.

My product won't do 8 sheets of 20 lb Georgia-Pacific paper. In fact, it slows considerably with four. I would not recommend trying 8.
