This Micro-Cut Shredder has the superior security shredding for even greater peace of mind. It disables shredder and prevents accidental activation.
Fellowes Powershred 62MC - shredder is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by neffster001 from My expectations were exceededThis Powershred 62MC Micro Shredder was delivered well packed and the set up was extremely simple. Initially I was a little disappointed in, what appeared to be a flimsy 5 gallon container, but after the unit was assembled, the shredder appears as if it will operate for many years. The one thing to consider is that you must be careful removing the 5 gallon reservoir and reinstalling it. Other than that, this micro-shredder is AWESOME!!! It handled 8 pieces of paper very well, I didn't try 10 pieces, but would expect that 10 work as advertised. Also, it was much quieter than my last shredder which was a pleasant surprise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Eugenides from Looks Promising Thus Far!The top shredding unit that contains the motor is a lot heavier than many of the past shredders I've owned, so I think that may bode well for durability. It seems solidly built, indeed--and it has a nice extra safety interlock on the top. Sometimes this type of safety feature is annoying--but this is simple and easy to use. This unit doesn't shred as small as the unit I have at home, but it is quieter. This shredder is not rated to shred data disks--if people have that need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HonestConnMan from FirstDay ReactionI can't speak for performance and durability since I just received the unit. However, I can talk about my first impressions: 1) SECURITY: The micro-cut shredding is impressive. I can't imagine anyone getting any information from the micro-cut paper. Security: Excellent. 2) JAM RESISTANCE: I don't believe the rated claims of any shredder for the number of pages you can shred at one time. The 62MC is rated for 10 pages at a time. I tried to limit myself to 2-3 pages at a time but sometimes put in six or seven pages together. No problem. I don't anticipate problems with less than the rated capacity. 3) NOISE: This replaces a Fellowes cross-cut shredder that finally gave up the ghost. To my surprise, this model is far more quiet. The ONLY objection I have (more of a nit-pick) is that the paper builds to peak in the disposal basket rather than falling evenly in the basket. As a result, this shredder -- even though it's a micro-cut -- requires MORE, not less, emptying than my old cross-cut shredder required (since it built up evenly in the bin rather than in the shape of a mountain). Overall, if it proves durable over time, I'm delighted by the purchase for the increased security and (relatively) quiet operation. (Sorry for writing this all in one paragraph, but the review window doesn't appear to allow paragraph breaks -- the ENTER key does nothing!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by RyanJack from Great shredderThis is probably my third or fourth Fellowes Shredder to own. It consistently meets my expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GMJJ from First Purchase and Very ImpressedThis is my first shredder. I used it for a variety of materials from thick paper to multiple sheets. It was fast, jam-free and produced a very secure confetti. My only regret was waiting so long to get one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lamar from Best Gift EverMy wife has always wanted a high quality shredder. She says it is a stress reliever. She couldn't wait to get it out of the box and start shredding. You think I'm kidding but I'm not. Great product and just right on the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SwampFront from Great shredder for usThis replaces a Fellowes P-48C, whose little plastic piece that detects paper fed in broke when shredding a CD. We chose the 62MC for the brand, the micro cut, and price. Bonus for us was quiet operation and a pull-out large capacity bin. We never do staples and I'll never do a CD again, so that capacity doesn't matter to us. It is specified to time out in order to cool down after 7 minutes of operation. I was able to shred slightly more than a ream of paper without it timing out. I've now done two bins of shredding and appreciate the quiet operation. The P-48C cross cut pieces could theoretically be reconstructed (probably if you had only one or two sheets shredded), while I don't see how this 62MC micro cut pieces could possibly be reassembled. The only thing better would be one such as we had where I worked that shredded into dust (literally - no exaggeration). And that was a commercial or industrial grade that probably cost at least ten times as much
