Rated 1 out of 5 by pineapple "Once Trusted Brand"
I'm retired but always had excellent experience with Fellowes products when I worked. Sorry to say that I just purchased this product for home use and it was doing well for about 30 minutes. Although I was being careful not to jam a lot of paper, it ended up jamming when an envelope I inserted twisted as it was feeding and then it jammed. I had to reverse and forward multiple times before I got the "noise" to stop. While it sounded like it was operating, it was not shredding and I was unable to feed any paper into it. I unplugged it and cleaned out all of the shreds in the teeth. Still doesn't work. Will see if/how warranty works since I purchased this 3 weeks ago. I might update my review down the road.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doba Shred works well
I bought this about 2 years ago as I needed a cross-cut shredding device for home office use. It has served well, with only a couple of minor issues. If you are using it for shredding a stockpile of documents, it will overheat and stop working after about 5 loads. Let it cool down and it will work again. The other issue I encountered today - it has a "safety" built in, which prevents the device operating unless the head is in properly. I chipped off the corner of the safety and now my device does not work. It also requires folding or tearing of paper so the sheets fit through the opening but that is acceptable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ColorJunkie Nice and compact
Nice and compact. Perfect for small home office. The packaging is misleading though. Says it shreds 4 sheets at once, which is true, but you have to fold a piece of paper to fit the small opening, so it really only shreds one sheet of paper at a time. Still it is just right for my needs.
