Powershred® 99Ms Micro-Cut Shredder 4.5 5 2 2
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! September 12, 2014
Shoud Have Purchased Sooner! Living with several adults in my household, personal shredders cannot come close to the durability and capacity of this shredder. Junk mail is the bread and butter of our postal service. I would continually put off shredding due to the amount of my personal time home shredders consume. In a world where privacy is at a minimum and one's name is sold over and over to marketing companies, my privacy is of paramount importance. When shredding marketing offers for several people, I am overjoyed that the Power shred 99ms can devour credit card offers and any unwanted junk, as well as files that are no longer needed. The Micro-Cut feature along with the 9 gallon waste bin was a major factor in deciding which model to choose. The shredded remains are "Micro" size just as stated by Fellowes, which lessens the number of times the bin needs to be emptied along with the paper remains being far superior in size than standard cross cut shredders.The security level is a P-5, which is at the higher end of the scale. The waste bin has an indicator stating when it is full, and the auto shutoff over the throat is a welcome safety factor. It also has a sleep mode that activates after a period of inactivity, which can be quickly resumed at the touch of a button. The information panel indicators are very helpful. I have wanted a large capacity shredder for several years and with the increase in unwanted mail, this purchase is well justified. Although it weighs 49lbs, having casters is a great feature that adds to portability and taking the mundane out of shredding. I purchase many items online, and this is the first review I have ever given, only because I value my privacy so highly. However, this shredder certainly deserves a rave review. The only improvement I would suggest would be a 10" throat width, but for all the wonderful features this shredder has, I can live with 9". It does not shred optical media, which wasn't a factor for me as I do my backups on external drives, for occasional optical media coarse sandpaper will destroy data as well as shredding. I assume that the reason optical media cannot be shredded is because the Micro-Cut fine shredding would cause too much heat on optical media. Overall, I am a well satisfied customer, and overjoyed to find a quality shredder with the major features I was looking for regarding my needs. January 17, 2014
