Rated 5 out of 5 byKpapaP from home shredding assistanceBought the Fellowes 12CS online. It was delivered a day later than advertised, but I was in no rush. Shreds well, but keep an eye on the level of the shredded materials as filling the container too far means newly shredded materials make it difficult to get the container out for emptying. IOW, don't fill it to the top of the window in the container; halfway may even be too full. This is the second time I had placed an order; the first was via Amazon and the product got lost in shipping. So, I ordered directly from the Office Depot site and got it in three days (delivered out of Kansas City. Also, follow the instructions and don't run this machine continually for more than 5 minutes as it will automatically shut off and not restart for a couple hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 byCuttingItAllUp from Works just fine!I was hesitant to buy it because it did not have castors on the bottom but found that it moves very smoothly across my rug because of the design of the machine. So it is basically mobile and easy to move. It is not as quiet as I expected but it is a softer sound than my old shredder. Have only had a short while but find it works just fine for my needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 byMackie from Great shredderThe last shredder was ok, but this one is quiet. I also am very impressed with the way it shreds documents.

Rated 5 out of 5 byFloridagal from Great for bigger jobs - Great shredderWhen going through bins of stuff, I came across years of accumulated tax papers and receipts, going back to 1992. While filtering through the paperwork I found many had social security and other personal information. In today's security climate, I knew I had to get a shredder. This little shredder was a trooper, never jammed, never had to reset, and kept up with my pace through all those years of documents. I am so glad I chose Fellowes. My last shredder had "said" you could shred up to 12 sheets, but would jamb up and need to be reversed. The Fellowes shredder has a larger are for feeding more documents at a time, and keeps up with continuous feeding. Cuts CD's with ease, and even chewed up some "floppy discs" of old tax data with ease. Purchase this model again (if needed)? Absolutely!

Rated 5 out of 5 byPark from Very Good but could be betterDoes what it says, but needs two things to be Excellent. As this is for personal use: 1) The collection box either needs a way to easily attach a disposal bag or an easier way hold it to pour into a disposal bag; 2) Add to the instructions that a solid non-flashing SafeSenseÂ® Technology light can be cleared by the reset switch on the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 byJashi from Shredder new purchaseI just received this shredder and I must say it looks very durable and the first try at shredding was great My only complaint is lack of instruction material included in the packing box I am on the older side and there is no manual included I think if I look further online I might find more info but for older folks it would be helpful to include a manual with the model number clearly displayed

Rated 5 out of 5 byBluto from Great small shredderRecently bought this as a replacement. Had problems with other shredders doing small items (eg cash register receipts) as well as large and multiple sheets. This one handles everything, has not jammed very well built for an economy shredder!
