Rated 5 out of 5 by A Startling Surprise I’m a collector, an octogenarian, so have for many years saved cards, letters and poetry from my husband, mother, children and friends; love letters from old boyfriends; receipts, and records of work and business, all too personal to throw in the curbside trash. Did I want my children to encounter this mountain of paper clutter? NO! So I bought three shredders one-by-one. By file fifteen, or less in one case, they clattered, stopped, had to be begged to take one sheet at a time. Finally growing discouraged I started looking at other people’s opinions of better shredders; perusing reviews by those who’d tested several shredders and discovered the Fellowes PS-79Ci had a good reputation. I bought one, however I was dubious of its staying power. I am having a grand surprise. To empty the previous shredders I had to lift off the tops which were awkward and heavy. And they all filled much too quickly. My Fellowes container is large enough to hold one stuffed file which works for me, the weight being just right to manage as I slide out the basket and dump the pieces into a garbage bag. Too often the other shredders were hot, quit working, always before I could get the contents of one file folder through them. This shredder gets hot after about three stuffed files. That’s just right, too, for I’m tired of sitting by then, ready to walk around for awhile, smell my roses and admire the moss rose … or start lunch, drink a cup of coffee, relax. Forty-six large black garbage bags of shredded paper later, I am thankful to all of the people who suggested I buy one. I estimate I have forty-six more bags at least to go, but now have the faith … my Fellowes is up to the job. And happily, in a final win-win, a nephew is plowing under the shredded material as mulch for his next year’s garden so my lifelong collection of memories will live on. I visualize them now … as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers. September 23, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product!! Would buy Again This is one of those products that you always need around the house. Those cheap ones that go for less than fifty dollars are a complete waste of time. We were tired of having to purchase one every year. This time we invested in one that will last. So far this thing really eats up everything. I like the idea that you are recommended to oil it periodically, that way it will keep on working. You don't need anything else if you're looking for a very good shredder to use at home or for a small office. This particular one does not hold a whole lot of so I would not recommend it for a full office or big business although it is built to take the abuse and keep on working. And it is very quiet when you use, just so you know. May 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I use to have a Swingline paper shredder and it broke. My experience with this new one has been really nice. May 11, 2015
