This review is from: Fellowes
Powershred 99Ms Medium-Duty Micro-Cut Shredder, 12 Sheet Capacity
Pros: This Fellowes 4609001 Powershred 99Ms Micro-Cut Shredder is able to: - shred paper, credit cards, and staples. It produces micro-cut shreds (2 by 14mm) which is really practical if you're shredding sensitive and confidential material -shred 12 sheets per pass (it actually does 12 sheets without a problem). The recommended daily usage is 1000 sheets per day, and up to 50 credit cards - shred continuously for 15 minutes. If it is operated for 15 minutes non-stop it will trigger an automatic 25 minute cool down. 9 gallon pull-out bin holds over 80% more Micro-Cut particles per gallon than standard Cross-Cut Shreds 12 sheets per pass into 5/64”x 5/16” micro-cut particles Energy saving Sleep Mode feature shuts down the shredder after 2 minutes of in activity SilentShred offers ultra-quiet performance for shared workspaces SafeSense Technology stops shredding when hands touch the paper opening
Cons: Will NOT shred paper clips or CD/DVDs. If you shred for 15 minutes straight it will trigger the overheat stop and it will stop at middle of shredding. It will not turn on again until 25 minute cool down period has passed, leaving the shredder with paper half way sticking out. The SafeSense Technology which stops shredding when hands touch the paper opening also seems to be activated by some of the paper that touches it. This usually seems to happen if you feed towards the maximum pages allowed, such as a junk mail envelope that curls towards the end and touches the SafeSense metal ring around the opening. This then activates the SafeSense which in turn stops the shredder, even though there are no human hand anywhere near the opening. The Fellowes emblem on the front had detached during shipping, but nothing that a little Gorilla glue couldn't fix.
Other Thoughts: It weighs 50lbs. I don't know it this is a positive or a negative or maybe both. Some people will love the heft because it's heavy duty, but others may find it too heavy. It does come with 4 caster wheels though. I ordered this through Beach Audio. To my surprise they shipped it very quick and it arrived packaged very well.
