Too early to tell Only have had it a couple of days and the on/off/reverse switch needs some serious revamping and it's a little loud. Hopefully, it will last longer than in some of the reviews I've read. September 13, 2014
Reliable & Durable Product I have been using this shredder for several weeks and it has proved to be very reliable, easy to use and appears to be a well engineered product. It has performed as advertised and so far, I am very pleased with my purchase. The waste container is large in capacity and easy to empty. Before purchasing, I did some on line research concerning shredders and found good reviews for the Fellowes brand. This was my reason for choosing a Fellowes product. August 19, 2014
Good before it died It worked well when it worked. It died just after 1 year and it was used very lightly, a few pages each month at most. Too expensive for it to die in such a short time under very minimal stress. August 8, 2014
