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:

The 12 Sheet Shredder I purchased from Staples works just fine. The shredder works quiet and efficient with the added feature of easy access to the cuttings box. I see this office tool lasting for a long time.

Very Good Shredder

Comments about Staples 12-Sheet Micro-Cut Shredder:

This shredder gets the job done. If you have a lot of shredding to do you will need to do it in shifts since this shredder tends to over heat. We had a back log of shredding and found that we could work with the shredder for approximately 30 miniutes before it over heated.

excellent product for secure shredding

By 32IM35

Comments about Staples 12-Sheet Micro-Cut Shredder:

This shredder reduces documents to a mass of small confetti-like bits of paper. It is listed as being able to handle 12 sheets at a time, and can do this, but runs faster when fewer sheets are inserted (runs well at 5-6 sheets). It was also listed as ultra-quiet on the in-store display, and, while quieter than other shredders I have used, still makes enough noise to be more accurately listed as "relatively quiet." It is at least not annoyingly loud. It will overheat when used continuously, and does shut off automatically when this occurs. It cools down fairly quickly, so there is not a long delay in being able to continue shredding. It also can shred credit cards and CDs. It has not had problems with jamming, and has a reversible direction to remove papers that may get stuck in the shredding mechanism.
I would recommended this shredder to anyone who has a need to securely shred documents and credit cards or CDs. It was moderately priced, with a sale discount, and has performed well for me. It has a moderate capacity before needing emptying, and comes with a starter supply of liner bags to catch the shredded paper.
