Micro Cut is The Only Way To Go. This Is Very Nice Indeed.

Ok I just got this shredder today, and I had to put a box of mail through it post haste. It does an excellent job of making paper into nothing but animal bedding. It looks like something a rodent chewed up. Now the not so good. It has a power saver that shuts it off after 5 minutes of no activity. Now frankly that isn't an issue for me since I had a box of mail sorted for shredding already. What is annoying, very much so, is the fact that you have to feed one sheet after another or it will shut the blades off. The paper blocks a sensor, that turns on the blades. If you're too slow they stop and have to start again when the next sheet enters the slot. There is a work around for this however, and the blades will keep turning until the bin fills up, and the bin sensor shuts it off. The work around is to take a sheet of paper and fold it into thirds. Then take the bottom third and insert it into the slot, leaving the rest of the sheet lay flat on top of the shredder. This triggers the blades, but isn't in deep enough to get pulled into the shredder. You can still stick paper into the slot and shred away, no interruptions. There's an indicator light on the top that turns on red, when the bin fills up. Just open the bin push the pile of shredded paper down, and continue to top it off. I used plastic double handle bags like you get from the grocery store and lined the bin to make it easier to empty out. The viewing window is small, but the sensor knows when it's full, and you can see through the window even when you line it with the grocery bag. It's quiet too, even when doing plastic cards. Window type envelopes are no problem, but must be fed the long way in. It would have been nice to have the slot about a half inch wider than a number 11 envelope so you could feed them in the wide way. Still it is a really nice shredder for the money, and the confetti can be used for animal bedding, mushroom growing, or compost. Or make fire starters by soaking in melted wax. If you use it for animals, avoid shredding plastic, in case the animals eat any, it won't harm them. I will add a picture of the sheet of paper in the slot to keep the shredder running, it works great.

So far outstanding. Time will tell

Initial Setup and first two inches of shredding. This will be compared to a 9 yr old Fellowes MS-460c that finally gave up the ghost after 9 years and dozens and dozens of rheims worth of paper.Packaging was excellent and setup effortless. Just put a bag in and oil it up.It did a great job so far. It 2018 $ this shredder is half the cost of the MS-460c. The micro pieces are 2-3 times the size of the old guy but I not sure they make one that does peppercorn size cuttings anymore. This one is more than secure and 1/10 size of cross-shred pieces.

Great compact shedder handling our industrial paper shredding

We shred a lot of paper. We had an industrial shredder in our small home business that has worked perfectly for 17 years. It stopped working. Company wants more then the price of the shredder to fix . I purchased this Amazon basics shredder. 1/4 of the size but just as powerful. Works great to far . We are very happy and may purchase another

Good unit.

Very good unit, quiet and dependable after months of medium duty use. It will shred 10 pages easily. Only downside I've found is it won't on standby, you have to turn it on every time unless it is back-to-back shredding.

This shredder is a great value

I've used this shredder for two months now, and it works great. It has a large capacity, so it takes a while to fill. I'm guessing a few hundred sheets of shredding. Two features I especially like about this unit are the auto-shutoff and the ability to run in forward mode manually. When cleaning or clearing the cutter head it is very helpful to be able to run the motor forward as well as reverse manually. Most shredders only allow manual reverse. Very nice unit, and a great value.

needed to get rid of and this thing worked like a champ

I had a TON of shredding that I needed to get rid of and this thing worked like a champ. It was so satisfying to put the unopened junk mail into the shredder and say bye bye. I haven't tried shredding 17 pages yet, but I was able to shred thick junk mail coupon envelopes. AND it's really quiet too! My only complaint is that I had SO much to shred I had to empty the bin often - it filled up real quick. Now I use it on a daily basis. My junk mail goes from the mail box right into the shredder. I'm very happy with it.

This thing eats everything. I love not having to open junk mail just so I can shred it. Now I can just shred it whole and get on with my day.
