This micro cut shredder earned The Best rating from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute because it produced the smallest shreds and cut the most sheets at once. The Best Micro Cut Shredder sliced paper into .39" x .08" indecipherable shreds, much smaller than the 1.77" x .20" pieces produced by lesser models. The Best model shredded 15 sheets of paper at once--more than any other unit--and its durable steel blades easily cut through paper clips and completely destroyed CDs and credit cards into pieces that are impossible to reassemble. Despite its shredding prowess, The Best model only generated 57.03 dB of noise (quieter than a normal conversation) and was the quietest unit tested. The Best Micro Cut Shredder's superior features include a 9"-wide paper feed slot, four casters that provide easy mobility, and a 9-gallon removable bin. 25" H x 12" D x 15" W. (40 lbs.)

This works as advertised. I like the fact that I can still hear the TV while shredding paper. It is that quiet. I looked to see what it did to my old credit cards and found them completely destroyed. Which is one reason I purchased this shredder to begin with. To avoid problems, do read the enclosed instructions. There are some things you just should not put into any shredder. The unit is a bit heavy, which is expected for the kind of work the machine will do. However, the wheels under it make it a breeze to move from room to room. Keep in mind that this unit is not made for long shredding sessions. Also do not expect to shred a lot of DVDs in one sitting.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Micro cut shredder
from Los Angeles, CA
It's quiet and powerful as advertised. There is one drawback, however. A DVD sometimes causes the shredder to "choke." The on switched must be toggled on and off several times before the DVD is completely shredded. I learned a trick. Hold down the plate that contains the slot while the DVD is being fed through the slot. That enables the DVD to pass through in one pass. A shredded DVD looks like silver dust, and shredded paper looks like micro pieces of the original, as advertised.

The Best is the Best
from New York, NY
Use of product: Home use for work papers and personal papers of a confidential or proprietary nature that need to be securely destroyed. Great things: The speed of the machine and the volume of paper it can handle at once is a real plus. Understandably when the you have micro cut, the machine is slower than with cross-cut. So, if micro-cut is what you want, this machine does a great job. Also, it is convenient that this machine can crush staples so you do not have to undo the staple before processing the document.Not so great: There is a button on the back of the machine that needs to be turned on to use the machine. That was not highlighted in the instructions so initially I could not turn on the machine. So, the instructions could be improved.

Highest security of a shredder
from champaign, IL
I bought this take care of tax and sensitive documents for my home office. It performed remarkably well for the amount of paper I had to shred. The great this is it accepts staples and is super quiet. What I didn't like was the unpacking of the shredder because it was so heavy. I had to lift it up and out of the box while bending over - not great for my back. I would recommend this shredder to anyone.

OK for small jobs
The shredder frequently displays that the bin is full when in fact it is not and it automatically shuts down. Turning it on / off restarts the shredding function. Not a good device for big continuous shredding jobs.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your feedback. This unit is designed to display the bin full indicator when the paper shred reaches a certain height. To help the shred settle to a lower level, you can open the bin door and shake the bin or you may need to empty the bin. The product's manual should also confirm how long this unit can be used before a rest period is needed since it is not designed for long periods of continuous shredding. Please remember that we back our merchandise with a lifetime guarantee. Should you find that this item doesn’t perform to your satisfaction, our customer service team is available 24 hours a day at 1-800-321-1484 to assist you with returning it.
The best shredder I've owned.
By The Tutor
from Long Beach, CA
I use primarily as a home office shredder. It is not only good at micro-shredding many pages at once, it is also easy to dispose of the shreddings (with or without shredder bags). The shredder basket easily slides out, and the blades are all steel--no plastic blades! With some common sense, like not overloading the unit and making sure to take breaks, should help the unit last a very long time.

Way better than the Office Depot unit I bought a few years back. Cuts the paper even smaller than my old unit and does it with such ease. It is quite large which would be my only complaint, but at the same time it has a large bin so I do not have to empty it as much.
