Powershred® DS-3 Cross-Cut Shredder
Excellent Reliable Shredder
A stylish looking shredder that works superbly. The safety shutoff works perfectly and is a must have if there are children around. However the top must be lifted off to empty the bin and it can become messy. But the qualities of the machine for its price makes it a great choice despite that drawback.

Powershred DS-3 is good answer to shredder questio
I have been seeking a decent light-duty shredder on store shelves in the San Francisco area for a couple of years. What struck me was that the selection could be great or small and still there was no reliable way to distinguish one from another.
So buying a shredder is a lot like buying a kitchen appliance: in fact, I think there should be a category called office appliances. This shredder appeared on a review site as the economical "home office" alternative to a more heavy-duty Fellowes-brand shredder, and received hundreds if not thousands (I forget which) of positive reviews.
I have only had it for about a week but the first impressions are all favorable. The business end of the appliance does not seem underpowered, which was my main concern, and it is simple to operate. The plastic basket and enclosure for the shredder are inevitable but look more serviceable than tacky.
I can't really comment or jucge beyond these general qualities because I have not used it over time, but I like it so far.
