Rated 5 out of 5 by MrGrumpy from This is a much better shredder than my last oneWhen my last shredder bit the dust I went shopping for a better replacement. This shredder was highly rated on both Amazon and Walmart.com. I thought the price was a bit stiff, but I wanted a shredder that would last and do the job quietly. I received it in shipment and was surprised at the weight of the head ! If weight is any indication of power, this thing can handle the load. After assembling this shredder I tried it out. I was blown away at the quiet operation even when using 10 sheets of paper. No more loud screeching every time I go to shred junk mail! I really appreciate the pull out container when it's time to empty. My last shredder required that I lift the head and empty the basket. That is so messy ! Not this shredder. I would highly recommend this shredder to anyone considering a really good quality shredder. It is worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by surgeondavid from Long service fellowes shredderThis shredder replaces one that has lasted over 20 years and made by fellowes. I hope this one works as reliably - if it does we will be well pleased.

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!)
