I absolutely love the fact that I am able to shred multiple documents at once, at a quick-pace, which was a huge selling point for me, and the ability to do so, without removing staples, is even more convenient!While I have not tried the maximum of 8-sheets at once, it has been able to successfully shred up to six documents, at once, with ease, and incredibly fast. I also value the ability of having both an auto-start option, as well as manual reverse, to clear out any possible jams.In the past, I have had shredders that cost 2-3 times the cost of this one, and they didn't even compare to the level of quality that this offers. They actually burnt out, very quickly, as I have a high-amount of paperwork that needs to be shredded, continuously, throughout my work-week. While this paper shredder is able to accommodate the destruction of paper, and card stock, on a 2-minute continuous run-time, I also appreciate the ability to be able to effectively shred, and demolish, both credit cards, store cards I no longer use, and even CDs!In addition, I am also extremely impressed by the size of this paper shredder, as it's not too large, and fits absolutely perfectly within my printer-station, cart, among both my inkjet, and laser printers.Overall, I am thoroughly happy, pleased with my purchase, and also have the pleasure of being able to rely on the AmazonBasics 1-year limited warranty, should any issues arise. However, so far, I have had absolutely no issues whatsoever when using this product.I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a perfectly sized, sturdy, yet lightweight paper shredder for both home, and office, use. Also, for the price, this compares to even the higher dollar competitor paper shredders, and I feel this is such a fantastic deal!
