Rated 5 out of 5 by Correcting the negative comment that i wrote a week ago I would like to correct the negative comments that I made about the Fellowes Shredder that I purchased from Office Depot. The problem was that I spoke to a Rep. who obviously had no interest in the good name of the company. the greatest thing that i did was to write my comment because the people who really cares about the company wrote me back after reading the comment and were the nicest Supervisor that you could ever speak to. The company has apologized for my experience over and over and have made arrangements to send me a brand new shredder, plus and upgrade from what I originally had. I am so grateful that we still have a great company like Fellowes, who really do stand by their products. October 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shred any future ID theft away The Powershred® DS-12Cs Cross-Cut Shredder is a great addition to my home office. The cross-cut patterned shredder will eliminate any worries you may have about ID theft from documents thrown in the trash. Buy it! September 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 1, 2014
