Powershred® DS-700C Deskside Shredder
Very good to replace old Fellowes shredder
Bought this product in promotion at newegg. It will replace old Fellowes shredder. Small bucket but very effective and takes little room.

Not fit for purpose
I bought this shredder from John Lewis and returned it within 3 weeks (bin emptied twice) as it failed to start - for some reason it would operate in reverse. I followed all the obvious fault-finding advice but no success. I exchanged the shredder for another example of the same model and bought some lubricating oil. This example lasted the same time ie after 2 weeks and the bin emptied 3 times despite lubrication. I am taking the shredder back to John Lewis this morning and asking for my money back.

It is unrealistic to require users to lubricate the cutting mechanism every 7 sheets especially when there are multi users in a household. This has led to a cut out in the forward direction (reverse works) and rendered the shredder useless. To make matters worse there are no instructions or user manual on-line to enable a user to gain access to the motor or paper sensor to attempt any maintenance.
