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.

This is a replacement shredder and so far it works like a charm and has no problems handling the volume of shredding that I do.

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

I got this to reduce the amount of paper garbage to a more manageable amount. Also it makes me feel more secure when I throw away those dangerous and unsolicited blank checks people send us. At our age we are concerned with identity theft from paper garbage with our information on it. We're not big business, just a family but I feel better using this shredder. Staples had a good product at a reasonable price and free shipping was a big selling point for us as this shredder is very heavy. It's also very quiet to operate and I like the removable key which makes it safer for my cats who take over my office in the morning.

High speed shredder

By Chuck

from Geneva, NY

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

It is faster and handles more sheets of paper than our last Staples shredder, which died when a paper clip was accidentally fed into it.
However, the paper has to be shoved into the machine forcefully, and sometimes a single sheet has trouble starting it.
The bin fills very quickly because the paper does not pack itself down. This requires removing the very heavy mechanism and packing it down yourself.
This is an inconvenience for senior seniors.

OK so far

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

I have only owned this for a couple of weeks. It replaced a Fellows shredder that only lasted 3 months. I use it in my home office so it gets light to medium usage. Shredding is okay. Emptying the tub is a chore. The head mechanism is on top and must be removed to empty. It is quite the heavy unit. The tub is a decent size which is good for holding a lot but bad for pouring into a trash bag. It has a full tub sensor which is really a pain. If you use a bag in the tub it causes the shreds to pile up quickly and shuts the unit off. You must constantly shake the unit or open it and attempt to get the bag to spread out more. I find it a bit better to not use a bag in the tub however the sensor still shuts it off prematurely and shreds adjustment is constantly needed.
Also, the unit shuts off quickly after shredding an item. If you have a pile to shred it is starting and stopping continuously. Not sure if this is bad for the motor or not. The safety key is a great idea.
