Pros:The Ativa DQ120D looks like a real shredder

Cons:The Ativa DQ120 is a classic example of built-in obsolescence.

I purchased this shredder expecting that it would help me get rid of some private papers and the junk mail we receive. The Ativa DQ 120D looks like a real shredder. Initially, the shredder worked pretty well with carefully sorted items, but I didn't have to wait long before feeding it was a very delicate search before finding the trigger to start it in motion. In my opinion, by the time the newness wore off, it had already quit for good. The notion that it could handle 12 sheets of paper at one time is totally exaggerated. Four to five...maybe! Save your money...this shredder doesn't "cut" it.
