Product Reviews
Fellowes Powershred 79Ci Cross-Cut Shredder is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 787.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from POWERSHRED 79Ci REVIEW This shredder is exactly the product that was advertised.It is the quietest shredder that I have personally operated. The machine is easy to operate and (Normally) I have difficulty with so called easy to operate machines, they do not live up to the easy/simple to operate statement, but this one operates as described, instructions are clear and easy to follow. I used a rubber mallet to install the wheels so not to damage them and I did not experience any difficulty installing them, it just took two (2) good whacks each to put them on . (Not bad for a female ). If you are in the market for a shredder that is 79Ci is what they say it is try one and experience a winner for yourself. The price is fair for what you get and the quality is impressive. Shredding paperwork is an enjoyable task and I can do this from my home. This is what I wanted when I made the purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine Shredder and quiet This is a fine shredder and quiet. It would be nice to have a longer run time with a shorter cool down time. Needs larger bin for shredded paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fool Proof Usage After trying to use other shredders, frustration was always prominent in using. Even putting in one sheet at a time, removing staples, etc., the other machines would jam. This Fellowes shredder fulfills all of my needs and is so easy to use!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality roduct My old Fellowes Shredder PS-77c jammed for the last time. I could not unjam it, so I looked for a shredder that had some sort of jam prevention. I zeroed in on the Powershred 79Ci since it seemed to have anti-jam feature. It was a little more than I expected to pay, but it works great, hasn't jammed and I would buy it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fellowes 79CI Shredder When I read it was a crosscut shredder I thought it was like the one I owned before this. My old one ( a different brand ) really cut paper in to small pieces this one you can pickup strips and read them. You have to be careful how you feed the paper into the machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Purchase Ever This is one heck of a shredder. It tells you when the bin is full and even has an energy saving function where it sleeps when not in use. Very strong and can cut multiple pages with ease. Highly recommended indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this shredder! It fits great in my office and is well designed. Shreds great and have not had any jams! Is so pleasantly designed you don't even notice it sitting in the corner. Other shredders in our building are big and noisy. This one is a nice size and is soooooo quiet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Have only had this product for 10 days but so far it has worked like a charm. Shreds quietly and efficiently up to 10 sheets of paper, cards and small staples. So far we have not had any jams or problems but will review again after we use it awhile longer and see if oiling it goes well. Long story short so far everyone in the office loves it. We hope it will last us for quite awhile.
