Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Shredder I recently bought the 450ms after buying and returning another brand. My first shredder was a Fellowes that I bought years ago and it still works great. However, it was only a strip shredder and I wanted something more secure. Costco had a deal on a cross cut shredder so I picked it up and from the start it was not very good. It had an awful smell like the motor burning up. It was loud and only did a fair job of shredding, and practically slowed to a crawl when putting in more than one sheet. After 1 day we took it back and started looking around. After reading a number of reviews for Fellowes shredders and almost every single one was positive and based upon my past experience I felt confident in getting another Fellowes branded shredder. I have only had this one a few days but it is a night and day difference from the other shredder I picked up from Costco. This thing is QUIET, much more so than the other one. I can put in a bunch of sheets and it chews right through them without slowing down. The pieces are so small that it would be impossible for someone to reassemble a sensitive document from the pieces. So far it works great. My only complaint is that I wish the temp warning light came on sooner as you get close to the shut down temp. Unfortunately, it seems to come on at the same time the unit stops. At least it lets you know why it stopped. It would be nice to get the warning sooner so you can give the shredder a break before it overheats. perhaps a green, to yellow to red set of LEDs to let you know how close you are to max operating temp would do the trick. Anyway, I would certainly recommend this to anyone looking for a good, secure shredder for small office/Home office type work. If you have a lot of work to do, the continuous run time is OK but it's not like you can shread for a hour at a time. Unfortunately, I got behind on paperwork and have lots of piles to work through. Nice work Fellowes, so far, I really like your quality and design. Just make that light come on sooner. JavaJack May 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well worth the price! This is a great shredder! It shreds a large amount of material quickly and quietly. A real time-saver, it easily takes seven sheets, including staples. The peace of mind that micro-shredding affords is well worth the cost! February 10, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rec'd as a gift I had an older Fellowes shredder that is still functioning, however since its an older model it shreds in strips. My son thought I need something more secure, thus the new shredder. Love it. January 12, 2013
