Rated 1 out of 5 by MikeH Casters break off
I've had this new shredder a little over 6 months. It's a very good shredder generally, I had no problems installing the casters, as another reviewer said, they snap in. I've moved this shredder between 50 - 100 *feet* in its short life, on solid, flat, hardwood floors that are smooth as glass. BUT, the "housing" around 2 of the casters, separately from each other, have broken for no reason, and the housing around a 3rd has a smaller crack. See the 2 photos. I tried multiple layers of duct tape, but because the breaks are right at big and at two insertion points, it doesn't work. This is a huge annoyance to deal with. Other than these problems, the shredder is fine. I'd give this 4 if there were no caster problems. It gets 1 star because this is really a pain in the butt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shredrite Great Product Almost Excellent, Highly Recommeded
I have owned several different manufactures of shredders and have used the Fellows High Security shredder at work for years. When the last shredder failed I decided to try Fellows for Home/Office and everything about this model is excellent but would have liked it to run longer before temperature safety kicks-in (ideal would be more industrial motor and vents for removing the heat build-up). With a stronger motor you would be able to shred others items like CD's, etc. along with more sheets per pass, which would be terrific. It will shred Credit Cards fine but with more data formats that are in use today, it would be ideal to be able to shred them for complete ID security. For most home use this would never be a problem, but I think with slight changes to this model it would pretty much ensure long long life use. Cut size is excellent. Overall GREAT product functionality and performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HEC808 Great Purchase
In my work office, we had a junk shredder, but we got this one to replace it. It has been great and is working very well for us. It is very sleek looking and does not make a lot a noise in our very small office. I think that the touch feature is very cool and love how it shreds paper to little confetti. Overall, it is a great purchase!
