5 out of 5 eggsThis thing is a beast!

Pros: This shredder is amazing for use on a consumer scale. I don't know that I would pay $467.99 for it. I purchased it for $196.00 while it was on sale and have no regrets. This thing shreds and shreds and never complains. I have put at least 1000 sheets of paper through this in a matter of 2-3 days. Also at least a dozen CDs. Ohh and for a shredder, this thing is pretty darn quite.

Cons: Way too expensive when not on sale for a paper shredder.

Other Thoughts: I have never been so impressed by such a simple appliance.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Spot

Pros: Quite, large shredding capacity, pull out bin (with plastic bag) is less messy, longer shedding times before having to cool down that most other models.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Great price point at NewEgg at 20% below list. Blows the competition away (once again)!

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible design and function

Pros: 1lb larger bin than W11C. Looks very high tech..

Cons: Very slow. Makes a lot of paper dust. Bin fills out very fast and stops shredding after only 1/5 of the capacity that a regular W11C takes.

Other Thoughts: I thought a $200 shredder would really make a huge difference. I shred about 6 to 7 bins each week with a W11C. I have gone through 6 W11C in the last 3 years due to the high volume shredding I have.
The problem with this shredder is simple design. The shredder stops shredding after 30 or so sheets because the shredded paper reaches the top. Unlike the W11C where the shredding continues unless the user stops it, or the bin is so tightly packed that it cannot shred anymore, this shredder stops immediately after feeling the shredded paper come to the top. Therefore, the user must open up the bin and push down the paper by hand. This allows the shredder to keep shredding more, even take more paper than a W11C bin, but only after shoving the paper down the bin 6 or 7 times. This creates tons of dust that ruins your day and your desk...IMO this shredder is a complete and otter failure from Fellows. I'm going back to the glorious W11C.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Shredder

Pros: This shredder is high quality. It doesn't jam, and it takes 8-10 sheets at a time. Mine arrived in perfect condition from Newegg. I was looking for a sturdy shredder, and this is it.

Cons: It may not do exactly the number of sheets at one time as they advertise.

Other Thoughts: Highly Recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Shredder

Pros: Quiet operation, sensing when fingers are near the slot (I have 2 grandsons this will keep them safe from getting little fingers shredded. lots of warning and info lights. Jamproof

Cons: price it wasn't free!! waste basket hard to get seated at times

Other Thoughts: I have had several shredders in the past that didn't hold up well of course they were cheaper so this time I thought I'd buy a higher end unit so far so good . I did mention it's quiet didn't I??? Some have complained about the operation noise but this unit is probale half to less than half as noisy as my previous shredders were ! Buy it if you need one I am sure you won't regret it!!

5 out of 5 eggsIt's expensive vegetable oil

Pros: I bought this along with a shredder. Works the same as vegetable oil.

Cons: It arrived 3 days before the shredder.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Received item just two days after ordering after selecting the rush order option! Great job Newegg! Easy set up, quiet, good instruction manual, not too big, not too small, fits under desk or along wall beside the desk. Easy to use, shreds credit cards with ease, multiple pages of papers feed through easily. Have many years of household paperwork to shred and I think this will do it all and allow me to watch TV while I do it.

Cons: Need to purchase lubricating oil (which was available at Newegg at the time of purchase) separately though it does come with a tiny bottle of oil to get you started.

Other Thoughts: Have been using an old, noisy shredder that only took a page at a time. This is a huge upgrade to that and I had it assembled, plugged in and working in less than 20 minutes (most of that was reading the instructions and I'm a slow reader!) Can FINALLY tackle the stacks of files that I have been putting off for ages. Too bad this shredder doesn't do your filing and pay your bills for you too!
