Fellowes Powershred 79Ci Cross-Cut Shredder is rated4.80 out of5 by308.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quality MachineWe haven't had the machine very long, so time will tell how long it actually lasts. However, it seems to be a very solid, good quality machine. So far, we like how it operates and looks, and it is much more quiet than our previous shredder.The addition of waste bags will reduce mess, however, they add to environmental waste. We will likely not use bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from impressiveFirst impressions lead me to give this a 5 star rating. It appears to be a solid performer & I was surprised at how quiet it was. What was important to me during the selection period was that I would be able to empty the bin effortlessly. The 6 gallon pull out bin is great. A bit on the pricey side but well worth it if it lives up to it's jam proof claim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Purchaselooks like the head is built well. I was surprised at how much the shredder head weighs. I expect this to last me a life time with a small to medium volume shredded

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet and Truely Jam ProofReplaces a ten year old Xerox Cross-Cut Shredder. It is remarkably quiet compared to the old one and so far has not hesitated to shred what I've put in. The jam proof feature actually refuses to begin the shredding process if you give more than the designed amount of paper. This limit is based on thickness of the stack so it really depends on the "weight" of the paper and not the number of sheets. If it last as long as the old one, then it's really quite a bargain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Shredder!!I purchased this shredder to replace a similar model (PS80C-2) that I have been using for the past 15 or so years. This 79Ci does an excellent job and seems to be as reliable as the old one. For the price, I don't think you can find a better shredder, especially for home use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from poor securityOnly giving 2 stars to Overall Rating due to the poor security due to the size of the shreds of paper.Very poor security for this shredder. If you have paper printed in landscape mode, you can have an "entire" Tax I.D. number, etc. on a piece of shredded paper. The strips are too long. The purpose of shredding is to destroy any information on a piece of paper and this shredder does not do it.It is sturdy, handles lots of paper and is fast. Like the fact it will stop if taking too much paper.However, after 2 months, I am already looking for another shredder due to the poor security of the shredded pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect!Sooooo much more quiet than my last shredder!! Smooth operation. Love the "safe sense" feature. My old machine always made me secretly fear I might shred my fingers if I didn't pay attention. :) The bin is easy to empty. It just slides out and slides back in. My old shredder required I lift off the heavy top and inevitably spill shreddings attached to the blade all over the floor. If all that isn't enough, it's handsome too. Matches the rest of my desk appliances.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 79Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut ShredderI'm very impressed with this shredder so far. First it is so quiet! I can carry on a conversation, watch tv or listen to the radio with out turning up the volume and I don't disturb the whole house while I'm using it. I really like the anit-jam feature. It literally clears the jams it's self about 99.9% of the time and the and the one or two jams I cleared (after 3 kitchen size garbage bags) was just a flip of the switch. I didn't have to pull the top and pull jammed paper out of the blades. The sensor on how many sheets i put in was a bit touchy. Unless the sheets were perfectly flat it took more like 10-12 sheet and sometimes miss-read even less if there were folds, etc. But that was minor. As long as it lasts longer than my last Fellowes shredder which quit working after 6 months this is a winner. But this was a replacement for that shredder under the warrenty and it was a breeze to get replaced as well. Which is why I stayed with Fellowes. I also like that it has wheels, I can move it to my dad's office and let him use it with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quietly cleans up clutterFrom junk mail with personal information to bills and everything in between, it's such a relief to just have a place to get rid of it all safely. I live in a relatively small place and I realize this was a larger shredder than I needed but it can wheel behind a chair out of sight and is super reliable and QUIET unlike every other one I've encountered. Worth the price. Easy set-up. I'll have to invest in some oil for the blades.
