Rated 3 out of 5 by Algae Powershred® 73Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder
My Powershred® 73Ci shredder works great so far. I love the pull out basket for easy emptying. It's very quiet. I love the wheels so I can roll it from one spot to another, but it gave a jam warning with just 5 pages when the rating is supposedly 12. Keep that in mind if you have a high volume of shredding to do.

shredder works great so far. love the pull out basket for easy emptying. multiple sheet shredding just glides though easily. no problem with credit cards either. a lot quieter than the shredder I had before. no jamming. love the wheels so it can roll from one spot to another.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AlexR Great Home Shredder
We purchased this shredder after our previous inexpensive home shredder was killed by a severe jam. We wanted something sturdier and a bit more jam-proof than our late lamented shredder. Although we haven't had a change to put the Fellowes shredder through a heavy-duty test yet, so far it's pleasantly quiet compared to the previous one, and it has that nice safety feature where the mechanism stops if the hands come near the slot. Beautiful design, and smooth operation. I attempted to run a five-page, two-staple glossy brochure through it, and it balked right away when folded in two. Fully extended so that it was just 5 pages, it balked and red-signalled midway through. By pressing the forced forward button, it finished shredding without a problem, but the fact remains that it balked and gave a jam warning with just five pages, when the rating is supposedly 12. Keep that in mind if you have a high volume of shredding to do.
