    Jul 10, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, solidly built, works nicely.
    Cons: Not for a huge stack of paper; must put the lid on correctly.

    Summary: My old cheapie shredder died (the gears wore out), so I was ready to spend up to about $50 for one that would last longer. But this one was only $16 at Wal-Mart, and was from the brand that has the most good reviews for shredders on Epinions. It seems ... read more

    Aug 25, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, powerful, small shreddings' size
    Cons: Narrow opening. Optical auto-on sensor would be better than a mechanical switch

    Summary: UPDATE: 9/18/03: It Broke :( I fed 4 sheets to it, they went slightly sideways and this time it jammed. Hit "reverse" and then the gears started slipping and this was it. I opened it up to see the damage and found out that the motor has a metal gear turni ... read more
