Powershred® 99Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder
My 3rd shredder and it is the best one I have ever own.

This is the third shredder that we have used. All the others in comparison were Mickey Mouse shredders that last but a year. One was replaced twice within 6 months by another manufacturer. After that, we decided to stop fooling around and go for Fellowes. While it may seem pricey to some, to us it was a no brainer. When you think of the cost of replacing 3 shredders in 3 years we could have saved the cost and then some and should have went right to Fellowes. My staff many times try to grab handfuls of paper and shred them, this machine handles that - it has never jammed and will reject handfuls of paper. The CD/DVD - Credit Card shredding capability is excellent - tiny little pieces never worry about theft of data. We also like the fact that it shuts down when anything but paper or CD/DVD, Credit Cards touch the slots. Half of our shredding are CD/DVD's the other half paper. The wastebasket handles large size shredding bags and doesn't have to emptied often. When it is full it is full. No need to press down the shredded material to fill the bag. We make shredding runs once a week and the unit will shut down to cool down after about 30 minutes. Good feature that prevents overheating. The shut down lasts approximately 15 - 20 minutes. I recommend this unit without reservation - even for light users. After all, you only get what you pay for; ...and Fellowes has proven to us to be reliable and functional. With what we spent on the other 3 shredders prior to this, we could have bought 2 more units. ...Oh, and did I mention, this unit is extremely quiet - another excellent quality.

100% Jam proof it is right! Put it to work for the last two days and it worked flawlessly. Even feeds 9" wide without problems.
Stops after about 20" of continuous feeding and is ready in about 40 as advertised. Excellent for an office environment.
