Despite its negatives, it is better than a strip-shredder
Reviewed in the United States on July 16, 2018
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. It also isn't as much a "shredder" as a "masticator" - meaning that mine isn't "cutting" the paper as much as it seems to merely be pulling it apart. This leaves behind a lot of paper dust and may not always adequately sever the relationship between important strings of letters and numbers (e.g. your account number, social security number, password, etc.) - which is the whole reason most people want a "micro-shredder" over a strip shredder. (SEE MY EDIT, BELOW) All of that being said, it is half the price of a more powerful shredder that can actually shred 8 sheets of paper, and/or run longer than 5 minutes without overheating.
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!)
