The cover of this shredder (where the cutting mechanism is) is very heavy and you need to use both hands to take it off. However, this is the best shredder that I have ever had and is more like a commercial shredder that you would see in an office than a personal one - it's powerful and fast but very quiet.
I love the fact that if you take out the red plastic key that it won't run (even if it's plugged into the electric). This is a great safety measure for those with kids or pets.
I love this shredder!

I bought this shredder about a year ago. I was impressed with the power of the motor and how fast it worked. But that's where it ended. My complaint here does not just apply to this shredder, but any shredder where the base unit sits ON TOP of the canister. Here's why:

1. The base unit in VERY heavy. This means every time I picked it up, I had to make certain I had a firm grip on it. This problem contributes to the next problem as well.

2. There is a sensor on the unit to alert you that the canister is full. Unfortunately, this completely stops the machine. As you are shredding, the shredded paper does not distribute evenly through the canister. It forms a sort of "mountain" in the middle. This means that it triggers the "full" sensor much sooner than it needs to. Which means you must pick up this crazy heavy unit and reach your hand in to smooth out the paper shreds. And yes, the light and stopper do not deactivate until they sense that you have removed the unit from the canister, so just shaking it to level the paper will not work.

3. Since the shredding unit must be completely removed to empty the canister, you will need to be able to place it somewhere. This pretty much guarantees you will get some paper shreds on your floor or other surface. In other words, make a mess.

Dealing with this unit wasn't worth it. I had purchased it to replace a shredder where the bin could be pulled from the shredder independently with a handle. It was MUCH easier to deal with, and ironically, much lighter as well. I highly recommend considering this when you purchase a shredder. I traded this in during one of Staples' "Shredder Trade-In" promotions and bought one with the handle on the canister, just like my old one.

nylon wheel eaten by metal gear

By need better gear

from MAINE

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Staples® 12-Sheet High Speed Cross-Cut Shredder:

I have had many shredders and when I got this one a little over a year ago I was impressed by the speed, ability to shred more than three sheets at a time and that the motor didn't overheat and then have to wait for the cool down and reset option. the only thing that was bothersome but manageable was that the paper did mound up and the sensor would make you take the top off and push the paper down...I could put up with that because it worked well otherwise. Well, being impressed all just ended, I was shredding a normal amount of paper and all of sudden it started spinning with a high speed whine. Since I am just out of warranty curiosity got the best of this engineer so I took the screws out and sure enough the metal sprocket gear (looks cast) split, a piece broke off and the metal gear wiped out the nylon gear and it is toast. Too bad as the construction of the electronics, the size of the motor and the way it was assembled looks good. It just appears that they used an inferior gearing mechanism that the motor speed and strength destroyed.....the weakest link in the design killed it. i looked on line at staples to see if there was a way to report the design flaw and didn't see anything so I posted it here. I hate to have to throw away a good motor, sensors and rest of it because a gear went, doesn't seem very green way to do things in this day and age.

Disappointed

By Sue

from Florida

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples® 12-Sheet High Speed Cross-Cut Shredder:

The shreader was taken back to the store after a weeks operation. Whether shreading 1 page or 12 pages it worked the first time but when using one or more times it stopped and the red light came on.There was nothing visible in the cutter head when removing the head from the basket. The light went out and it worked again for a couple of sheets.
I returned it to the store and found it was out fo stock so purchased a different model. My previous Staples lasted 3 years but had stopped working when using it with CD.

Excellent Shredder for the Price

By Mike Rippo

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples® 12-Sheet High Speed Cross-Cut Shredder:

This is an excellent shredder for the price, as I got it on sale for $99 with 10% coupon, plus an additional $20 back in Visa gift card. Right out othe box, this thing was shredding more than 12 sheets consistently from over 10 years of old bills and papers scattered in five boxes that needed to be discarded. And I can say it took over an hour for the overheat protection to kick in, so it does not heat up fast. There were a few times where it did jam from stuffing in too many sheets but it was very easy to clear. And i ran it in reverse a few times and it never jammed up with shreddings, so everything was falling through into the bucket. I removed one star because of the overfill detector as the shreddings do not fall evenly into the bucket and you have to manual move the paper pretty often to clear the alarm. It is also a very heavy unit and I wish that the bucket had handles on it for easier transport. The child-safety key that prevents operation is an excellent feature too. I just ran a lubrication sheet through last night as recommended after all the heavy shredding i have done over the last two weeks. It's still working great and ready to eat more paper!
