  • Happy so far...

    Dec 20, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: quiet; more powerful than average; value price
    Cons: a bit slower than average; store demo unit had a problem

    Summary: Conclusion: I’m very happy with this unit so far. I bought it for home use, but my wife’s neurosis about shredding everything means it probably gets more use than the average office shredder. Pro: No “wall wart” wall transformer ... read more

    Pros: Large capacity bin.
    Cons: Quality, speed, support from manufacturer

    Summary: We purchased this shredder and its been a disappointment from the start. It cannot handle 15 pages like advertised - more like 5, if you're lucky. It jams very easily. The On/Off switch broke. I emailed the manufacturer numerous times but received no ... read more

  • Works for me

    Pros: Works great, no jams yet
    Cons: None that I can think of

    Summary: I have destroyed every shredder I have ever purchased, mostly by Fellowes. We have two, one at home one at the office. They both get a great deal of work and have not died after more than one year. Overall, I am very very happy, apparently not ... read more

    Pros: Good heavy duty shredder. Performs well when it works.
    Cons: When it doesn't work, you have a $200 paperweight.

    Summary: We had this shredder for about a year and it works great. As a heavy duty unit, it performs, including heavy plastic and CD shredding. Until it breaks. In our case, there was a power surge which blew the fuse which is soldered onto the power ... read more

  • Problems almost from the start

    Rated Show
    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.

    Summary: 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 ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Company will not stand behind product. Machine only worked for a short time.

    Summary: Same problem as the other poster. Machine quit working and the company claims the product was misused and was run for more than 2 minutes or had more than 10 pieces of paper run thru it. Funny, because this machine is supposed to shred 15 sheets at a ... read more

  • BROKE AFTER 4 MONTHS BEWARE BEFORE YOU BUT THIS MACHINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rated Show
    Pros: GREAT FOR THE 4 MONTHS IT WORKED, IF YOU USE LESS THAN 12 SHEETS
    Cons: THIS MACHINE CANNOT SHRED THE 15 SHEETS IT ADVERTISES.

    Summary: FIRST THE WASTE CONTAINER SAFETY SWITCH BROKE, THEN THE SHREDDER TENDERIZED THE PAPER INSTEAD OF SHREDDING THE PAPER. USED THE RECOMMENDED LUBRICANT SHEETS, BUT THIS JUST WAS A WASTE OF MONEY FOR THIS SHREDDER. ... read more

  • 15 Pages-No Way

    Sep 22, 2006 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Shedder does a very good job assuring privacy
    Cons: Slow and has never met the manufactures advertised 15 pages

    Summary: Purchased this unit at Staples with the idea I would shorten my shredding time. This unit was slow from the start with paper jams if any more than 6 sheets of paper were inserted, they advertise up to 15 pages. I have now owned this unit for one year ... read more

  • No Warranty on Shredder

    Rated Show
    Pros: Fairly quiet, and it did take staples and credit cards. Bin easy to unload.
    Cons: Manufacturer nor Staples will not stand behind product.

    Summary: Purchased from Staples. Product priced w/rebate. Very competitive. Worked flawlessly for two months. On and off switch became inoperative. Unit used in my office at home. Very limited usage. No more than 4-5 times a ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: Company doesn't support product!

    Summary: We purchased this heavy duty shredder to shred various household documents. After two months one of the plastic pieces broke off which caused it to jam. When I tried to return it under the warranty I was told I must have damaged it by running it too ... read more
