5easy to handle and small enough to fit almost anywhere
By Amazon Customer
[[VIDEOID:fefb54823f46761de6d20d9ffefb9681]] Basic cross-cut shredder, and that is what it is. If you need a commercial shredder, this one is not for you. It can handle (maximum) eight sheets as advertised. Credit cards no problem.
It is light, easy to handle and small enough to fit almost anywhere, noise level is low. It will work best if connected directly to a wall socket, if you have to use extension cord, make sure it can handle the 2.2 Amps rated motor.

5This shredder was a surprisingly good value and quieter than I expected
By Amazon Customer
I am not someone who uses a paper shredder every day, but when I do, I really use it hard. This shredder was a surprisingly good value and quieter than I expected. That said, my last one overheated and needed to be replaced. This shredder has a 3 minute constant run time and a nice overheat indicator light that should help prevent me from making the same mistake.

Another thing I want to comment on: I am always paranoid about buying anything electrical online. I fear it won't work properly and returning it will be a hassle. If your like me, you'll be happy to know Amazon leaves a little note inside the package that they test the paper shredder before shipping it to you!

By Huron Ohio reader
Very nice product. Used it extensively the first day and was very pleased with results. Didn't overheat and handled 8 sheets with ease.
