Won't stop running Nonstop running makes this shredder very dangerous. I returned to a burning smell and found it running on its own. Despite several attempts to clean the sensor area, the problem persists. Do NOT leave this shredder plugged in or in standby. December 16, 2014
Great Perormance This is the best shredder that I have used to-date. Although I am not a heavy user, it works perfectly for me. It shreds quickly and easily. Staples in your paper creates no problems. It also shreds your old credit cards perfectly. It looks very stylish. And I love the safety feature so I won't have to worry about a childs fingers getting into the teeth of the shredder - and it does work! The only one issue that I have with this shredder is if you have a lot of shredding to do in one go, it does get messy. Because the last bunch of papers shredded stay in the mechanism until the next bunch pushes it into the bin, the shredding's protrude from the underside of the shredding unit.Therefore as you are doing a lot of shredding the bin fills up quickly. When you pull the bin out to empty, the protruding shreddings scrape off the top layer of shredded paper, and this will land inside the compartment where your bin would fit; and also on the floor as you pull the bin out. Of course the key is to empty the bin regularly. Easier said than done when you are trying to get as much done in as little time possible. That said, I would still recommend this shredder.
