I’ve used many different shredders over the years, and this one is clearly among the better ones. I never had a moment of struggle with it simply because it always works like a new machine. It can shred paper, CDs, cards, you name it and with absolutely no fuss. I also like the fact that it is nice to look at and I can move it around easily, thanks to the wheels at the bottom. Overall, this is an excellent machine that every office must have. It works fast, makes no noise, and does not use a lot of electricity.
