If I had to do it all over I would certainly buy this shredder again but I had a few concerns that may be helpful to others. Let me also mention that I previously had the SPL-TMC10A so the transition to this model SPL-TMC12A was fairly smooth.

First I will list the features I like:
1) Great price for a professional series shredder
2) Took advantage of a trade-in for my old shredder ($25 off)
3) Shreds staples, paper clips, and discs too
4) Good dimensions
5) Fairly stylish looking
6) Quiet
7) Fast
8) Secure
9) This model has bag management

My concerns:
1) Hard to insert the casters without a hammer
2) Power cord much shorter than previous model
3) Previous model was more stylish
4) The bin is smaller than previous model

I noticed the bad reviews pertained to overheating. This model is rated for 8 minutes of continuous use so I wouldn't recommend it for heavy duty shredding over a long duration. It's perfect, however, for everyday shredding of junk mail, small documents, etc.

The casters were hard to install. I used a hammer to insert them. Then I noticed there were two types of casters. The casters intended for the front have wheel locks. The manual mentioned NOTHING about setting up the wheels, etc. It only contained basic operating instructions. I managed to pry out the casters with a screwdriver so I could remount the casters with locks in front.

Someone mentioned the buttons don't light up but this model certainly does. Yours might be defective. The directional buttons have a more comfortable, soft touch compared with my previous model but the power button is a little cheap feeling. Also, the throat is a little narrow (8.7") on this model but certainly handles an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper. My previous model must have had a 9" throat. The Staples web site was missing some details.

A word to those who shred unopened junk mail: I damaged a shredder in the past due to the mail containing a commemorative souvenir coin!

Wish I never purchased this piece of [*]! It is great if you are shredding a couple of pieces of paper a day. However, if you have a lot to shred, after 8 minutes, you have to wait for 40 minutes for it to cool down. Then you get to shred 4 or 5 more pieces and you wait again. Do NOT BUY A STAPLE SHREDDER. I own a Fellowes shredder that I purchased in 1996 and it still works great buy I left it for my Mother and now I own this piece of[*]. My Fellowes unit can shred for hours on end, literally.

Comments about Staples® 12-Sheet Micro-Cut Shredder:

Great to have a shredder that has a bag. Much cleaner when It has to be empied. No more chasing bits of shredded paper around the floor. It is also quieter that the one it replaces

A very functional paper shredder

By Jim

from Yuma, AZ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples® 12-Sheet Micro-Cut Shredder:

This 12-sheet micro-cut shredder is of optimal height, the shreading is excellent, and the shredder bin does not require emptying every day. On the negative side, the trash bin is not readily accessible, so another trash basket is necessary nearby. The system is a bit prone to overheating if used continuously for about 5 minutes, but given a half hour or so to cool, it returns to action. This is an excellent product for a personal office, but it will not keep up with the tasks associated with an office of about three or more. It would also be nice if the intake slot was modified for an easier insertion of folded or wrinkled sheets of paper.

Quite and Super Effective

By BBUSER

from Vienna, Virginia

Verified Buyer

Comments about Staples® 12-Sheet Micro-Cut Shredder:

Needed a quality shredder that would securely shred my disposed data. This unit is quite and very effective in doing that. The shred bend is a little small but, because the micro-cuts are so small, the shredded pieces are so compact that the bend capacity is much greater than one would expect. We use this shredder in our business and I would highly recommend it to others who might be interested in a shredder for the business environment. Pros: Quite and Effectively shreds paper for great security. Cons: A tiny bit pricey for the capacity of the machine.
