Very reliable shredder
I purchased this shredder about 2 years ago and it has been used daily since then. It shreds anything I put thru it quickly and completely. I have no worries that anything I put thru it will ever be read. I have used other brands before this one and they all broke or didn’t shred as completely as this shredder does. The only minor problem I has was the sensor to stop the shredder after shredding got a bit dirty and would not shut the shredder off, but after taking a q-tip and cleaning it off it works fine. I would recommend this type for anyone that has a home office or worries about security.

My little shredderette
I ordered the Fellowes Shredder from Costco on-line. It was shipped correctly, was easy to just switch on and there was no hassle setting it up. I love my little shredderette…..

Jammed, cannot seem to fix.
This shredder was alright until it jammed one day. The paper got stuck and I had to put the gears in reverse and forward, for several hours, to get the paper completely shredded. Now the gears seem to be misaligned and I don't know how to fix it. It's too much trouble to fix it or get the replacement parts, and I doubt oiling it will help in this case.
Lesson learned: Don't put brochures into the shredder the short way, because if they get stuck, you can't reverse it and pull the papers out.
