5 out of 5 eggsBest shredder I've had

Pros: Fast, does the number of sheets it says it will. Crosscut is acceptable - strips are about 1.5 inches long. Does credit cards and CDs just fine.

Cons: Kinda loud. The crosscut is good but not as secure as a diamond cutter. But I'm not worried about cops or the NSA going through my trash so I figure it's good enough to stop the common, lazy, criminal.

Other Thoughts: I've filled up the basket once and am working on a second load. I'm impressed with this shredder. It seems robust.

One reviewer wrote the lip gets in the way. I don't need a "shredder nanny" either but, for me, it doesn't get in the way; so it's whatever.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as Advertised

Pros: Got it on sale for 50 bucks. Does what it says (12 pages at a time). Nice visual window to let you know when it is approaching full.

Cons: Lip on feed ramp makes feeding paper more difficult...also stops you from putting more than 12 sheets in at a time...but I don't need a shredder nanny.
