Powershred® DM1200Ct Cross-Cut Shredder
A Little Disappointed
This model shreds very well and seems to be jam resistant. However, it has two inherent defects: 1) It doesn't always sense the paper and I sometimes have to reinsert the paper several times before it senses the paper and begins shredding; 2) I have to fiddle with the bin to get it to fit properly so it will engage shredding. I returned the first one for the same reasons, and the second has the same defects which makes me believe it is inherent to this product. I am not really happy with the product and may return it.

Nice Shredder, Frustrating Stickers
Just purchased a new Fellowes DM1200Ct from Costco. Seems like a very good value. Lots quieter than the Royal unit it replaced. Haven't used it much.
When setting up the unit, realized it had some large ugly marketing stickers on the front of the bin and a smaller one on the top shredder head. I didn't want either one on the machine, so I tried to remove them, and expected that they would just pull off cleanly. NOT so.
So before I even used the new shredder, I am having to use solvent on the thing and then spending time washing it off. What a pain.
I like the machine... quiet, quick, and I like the ability to chew through staples and paper clips.
Hopefully it will last a long time too.
