Rated 5 out of 5 by from Below average quality We just received this new Fellowes 225Ci paper shredder and are EXTREMELY disappointed that the internal paper bin supplied as it is made of CARDBOARD rather than the expected plastic bin. We could not find replacement cardboard bins as an option on the consumables list for this product. A plastic bin is essential for the expected usage (commercial) especially given the price range. VERY VERY disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really fits our needs. Recently we had to replace our Fellowes shredders with newer updated models. We are so happy with the new models. Who would think that upgrading shredders could put a smile on so many faces. Easy and efficient to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable shredder We had the same model previously but it was the strip shredder. This we purchased cross shreds. Other one worked very well for about 10 years. hoping this one will last as long if not longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small business owner I have owned my fair share of shredders and usually they last about a year. This unit is constructed well and is somewhat quieter than what I am use to. I bought it because of other favorable reviews. So far so good. It has taken everything I put in it. I have many old files that I plan shred as opposed to using an outside company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Product Recently purchased the 225CI for the cross-cut feature as the one previously in use was a straight cut. As recently obtained this shredder it has to date been operating well - no issues. A nice surprise, the 225Ci came with a bottle of oil as the 225i we were using did not. I am disappointed in the shred bin that was supplied with this 225Ci shredder - a heavy-thick cardboard carton for the bin. This was disappointing as the 225i we were using had a heavier corrugated type bin that is much sturdier/construction than this heavy-thick cardboard. Makes you wonder exactly how long this will last with the on-going emptied of the shred bin. How soon we will be seeking a shred bin replacement. The other disappointment, the 225i had a "separate" bin for the shredded CD's. The 225Ci does not. Any shredded CD's are now mixed in with the shredded paper. With the price paid, would think there would be a better constructed shred bin and would include the CD shred bin. Other than these two concerns, the shredder works as expected. Recommend? Yes, would purchase another, and would recommend to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silent Shredder This shredder has worked very well for our office. It is the quietest cross-cut shredder we've ever used. The 3-yr warranty is also very nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement purchase I purchased the shredder because our much older model finally died -- it too was a Fellowes. I am so pleased with the quiet operation and the ease of use, I would recommend this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worst Purchase Ever I purchased two of these units. They have been in service for 4 months and they have both failed, making loud grating noises, sounding like stripped gears. This model is not reliable at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensor Issues Our company purchased two C-225ci shredders and in just a few weeks we had sensor malfunctions on both machines. Both were repaired by authorized repair centers. One is working ok while the other one continues to have sensor issues. Too many bells and whistles. The older model C220 machine we have is working fine after several years of service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not A Good Purchase... The shredder was working good for 11mnths and then started acting up. It can't take high volume as advertised. I called up customer service and was told to clean the scensors and that didn't work. Full bin light stays on when there's nothing in the basket. I called back for a service call and they couldn't tell me who would be calling me and that it would take 1-3 business days for just a phone call. Really bad customer service. We need this shredder ASAP, our shredding is piling up quickly. :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Justice Clerk I was very pleased at the speed of records destruction with this shredder. Very simple to use. Love the box for catching the shreds, it makes emptying it uncomplicated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powershred 225Ci This is our second Fellowes Powershred product for the office, the first one was a strip cut and very small. After many years of use well worth the money spent we needed to get a new one and decided to upgrade. Love the cross cut feature and the indicators of too many sheets of paper. Hopefully this will prevent jams in the future. Very compact for the work the shredder does and it is very quiet compared to the old one. Nice that it came with a few bags so we could start using it right away, as well as the oil and a good user guide. My only concern is for the cardboard box for the paper, hopefully it will last a long time or we can get a replacement should it get damaged. Looking forward to hopefully many years of usage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shredder Great shredder, we use this at the office. Its jam free which is a plus in an office where paper is constantly being shredded. It does a great job at shredding paper ( more of a mince than a shred). Wish it were a bit quieter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 225Ci -- really heavy duty Keeps going continuously, and quickly at 18 fpm. Let's me get rid of whole boxes in minutes. Why worry about an outside service?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hurray! Jam Proof This is by far the best shredder ever. I have purchase 5 shredders in the last 4 years, and not a one had the quality or power this machine has. We purchase the C-225Ci Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder and it is everything I hoped for. One note: it works best without the bag, the full sensor light comes on long before the bag is half filled, with just the bin it works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shredder We are experiencing a great relief after our purchase of the C-225Ci Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder. We are a hospital with 33 beds and have needs of a more efficient, higher capacity, and reliable shredder and Fellowes came through once again. We have purchased shredders from Fellowes before, but they were not the commercial end that we were needing and we were burning out the motors of the others because of the excess usage of our nursing staff. Patient confidentiality is of the utmost importance, so we must protect our patient's information and this is where Fellowes comes to our rescue. With previous purchases we have always been satisfied and hope to continue our relationship long into the future. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worst Purchase Ever Purchased the Powershred 225Ci, and it has been a nightmare since two weeks from purchase date. It is a beautifully designed unit that takes less office space than the dinosaur unit it replaced. In my opinion, the dinosaur unit with no bells and whistles was a far better unit. This unit is on its 4th repair. It does jam on occasion, but that is the least of its problems. The sensory system is faulty. Instead of auto-stop when job is completed, it runs continuously until the user turns it off. It has become such a nuisance to operate because for it to work you have to press the right arrow before putting the paper in and while it is shredding. Now, with this repair, we have come to find out that there is a piece broken under its hood. I wonder how that happened. As for the safety feature, of course this is great...the darn thing stops working and lights up like a Christmas tree when you insert paper. In my opinion, this is not a professional, high-capacity shredder, and like a new should be bound by the "Lemon Law".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Bought this shredder for our office to replace an older one. We selected this model based on the caster wheels, waste capacity, shred capacity and the continuous shredding capability. Have had no issues with this since we bought it. Very quiet and easy to operate. Also liked the fact it will shred credit cards, staples, paper clips and CD's/DVD's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second times the charm The first shredder that arrived wouldn't work unless the door was shut really hard. With a phone call to the manufacturer, we learned that it had a bad circuit board. Customer Service was great, the were able to send us a replacement within about 10 days. That one has worked fine so far. It is nice and quiet and does a good job. Our one complaint is that the basket for the shredded documents appears to be made of heavy cardboard. This was a surprise because the shredder was quite expensive and should have been made of heavier duty materials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well satisfied We are a Law Enforcement Office and handle a lot of classified printed material. We are required by law to shred this information after use. With our old shredder this task took a great deal of time, sometimes days. It is a pleasure to shred with our FELLOWS C-225 IC Jam Resistant Systems. We can now shred many more sheets of paper at one time, while it continues to run quietly and prevents overload. The quiet motor lets us continue other office business without interfering. Being able to shred old CD's is also plus for us, something we have not been able to do in the past. We know with the brand name of Fellows thiswould be the shredder for us. Thanks to Fellows for the great imporvement to our office. This shredder has been a tremendous asset to the efficiency of which our office is run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vey Happy So Far I just received the C-225Ci when expected and I was lucky that the delivery person used his hand truck to get it down the stairs to my office. Its heavy but wow! Very quite and take wads of paper at a time. If it gets over loaded, the bars lite up and it reverses easily. I hope to get many years from this shredder. I love it and appreciate the paper bin. GBC got rid of theirs in this class of shredders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking machine Well I've only used this shredder for two days so far. It is very quiet and efficient. I'm hoping it will be the workhorse it was advertised to be. Noticed that when you continuously feed papers in one after the other it want's to stop and wait. Maybe have to get used to this one vs my Staples shredder. The jury is out until I've had more continuous usage.
