Pros: Looks good and is quite. When it worked it worked well.
Cons: Did not hold up to only a small amount of use in the home.
Machine worked well at first but started having problems after about a month. When putting in even one sheet of paper it starts and shreads about 1 inch of the paper and then automatically backs it out.
I purchased the EPS - 1501X thinking I was getting a good heavy duty machine. I am very disappointed in its performance. It was never abused.
I would have had to mail it back to the manufacturer for them to fix it.
I had an extended warranty with STAPLES and received most of my money back in the form of a gift card.
