The Fellowes Shredmate Cross Cut shredder is a small yet very effective machine. It is built of good quality materials that gives the impression it will last a while and work well. This model is able to shred three of four pieces of paper at a time and does so at a relatively quick speed. I have not experienced any paper jam problems at all at the moment and everything I have shredded as gone through the machine quickly and efficiently.
The size of this Fellowes shredder is also an added bonus, it is large enough to hold quite a lot of shredded waste but it is small enough to sit under a desk out of the way or on a desk in a discrete manner. I have not noticed a large amount of noise coming from the machine whilst it is in use which is an added bonus taking in to account the cheap price. The Fellowes Shredmate Cross Cut Shredder is ideal for light use both at home or in the office. Sometimes it is not worth spending a lot of money on a shredder if you are only going to use it now and again or everyday but on a very light basis.
Surprisingly for such a small shredder it can also shred its way through credit cards and staples which is always an added bonus as it is hard to know what to do with your old bank and credit cards when they expires and it can be annoying having to remove staples from documents before they are shredded. I would say that this model probably will not last all that long if you do overload or need to shred a lot of material on a daily basis so bear this in mind, but for general usage levels it is definitely ideal and particularly for the home.
The Swordfish 700DC Diamond Cut Shredder is a very impressive piece of equipment for the price, the feature list of the model looks like that of one in a much higher price range. First of all it is a diamond cut shredders meaning shredded documents are reduced to tiny sizes and for a shredder in the lower end of the market this is done at a fast speed as well. I am very surprised but it actually can shred seven pieces of paper at a time which is how many it claims to – again this is very good considering the low price tag.
The diamond cut shredding also means the model can hold a lot of paper before it needs emptying and so for home use where you would probably only shred one or two pieces of paper a day, or maybe a few more every three or four days, it would not need emptying for a long while. The shredded paper is done to a good size and everything seems to stay neat and tidy during the process with minimal dust. The Swordfish 700DC Diamond Cut Shredder is definitely worth investing in for home use as at this price everyone should purchase one to ensure piece of mind.
This shredder also won an award for being one of the best shredders on the market in 2009 and it also comes highly recommended in Which magazine. The size of the shredder is also quite compact meaning it does not take up too much room in the house and isn’t an eye sore. It requires easy maintenance and you can tell that it will be a long lasting product. Even though I have put it this is a good model for home use I would also recommend it for any small business office.
Having looked at this shredder on Amazon it has nothing but 5 star reviews and so I thought I would give this one a whirl. I have found it to be an excellent product which does everything that it says it will; it is very quiet in operation – the quietest shredder I have ever used and so you can use it without it causing too much of a distraction. The huge capacity of 20 litres that it can store is also great as it means you do not have to spend too much time emptying the waste.
This model works as a high quality product should do – it shreds the paper in to very small parts which is great for security reasons and it can also handle quite a few pieces of paper at once, I would say it works brilliantly shredding seven pieces at a time without any problems. A really useful thing to note is that it does also shred staples and so you don’t have to spend wasted hours removing all of those from old handouts. The Fellowes Desk Shredder MS450Cs is truly an excellent quality shredding machine.
A brilliant feature built in to the model is the safe sense technology which means it recognises when something other than paper is near the shredding mechanism (such as little ones fingers) and automatically cuts out when it senses these. This shredder also has the facilities to destroy both CD’s and DVD’s which is another useful feature to have. The only negative about this model is that it isn’t one of the cheapest on the market, however if you want to invest in a product that will last, has the highest security in mind and the latest features – this is the shredder for you, and I am sure you will not find a better product on the market at the moment!
This product has many rave reviews on Amazon and so I thought I would give this one a try. First impressions; this a well-built model, reasonably sized and is made of quality materials not cheap plastic. It shreds large quantities of paper easily and very finely, the cutters are of great quality, this is a long lasting product that will work well for a long period of time without any jamming problems. It looks like a professional office shredder, however the price and quality reflects the domestic market. Read more…
Great little shredder from Swordfish, suitable for use at home or in a small office. The diamond cut feature allows for extra security in all the shredded documents, cutting pieces of paper up into diamond shaped particles. The design of the printer is small and compact, it is well designed and looks like it is made to last. Built in is an automatic start and stop control, and a handy reverse function that comes in useful if any jams occur. Read more…
A Fellowes cross cut shredder which is smart looking in a silver and black design. Extremely easy to use with three simple settings namely ‘shredding’, the ‘off’ setting and ‘bring it back out’ setting which comes in useful when something is not going through the shredder well. The information provided with the shredder claims 7 sheets at a time, I would stick with 4 or 5 sheets at a time to prevent the model having too work too hard. The more sheets you put through the louder it is and the slower the shredding is. Read more…
