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.

Micro Shredder

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

Shredder does a good job but the drive motor heats up to rapidly and takes 40 minutes to cool off.
It could have a cooling fan which functions when the shredder is not cutting paper to avoid blowing the cuttings around. and off when it is cutting. A typical computer fan would be silent and do a wonderful job. My waiting times have been annoying when I have a large stack of papers.

Excellent home/office shredder!

By Mike S.

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

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

This is a great home/office additional for anyone who has a home business or a lot of junk mail that needs to be gotten rid of. Fits nicely under a desk or workstation. Works great on unwanted cd's and those documents that contain important information which no one wants lying around for roaming eyes to see. As with any other shredder out there don't load up to much which may trigger overheating or a jam up. An older shredder I had would got hot from only half capacity feeding. So far it's a dandy!

Staples 12-sheet micro cut shredder

By cheryl reed

from Missouri City, TX.

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

This shredder is really great. Have not had any problems so far. It is very quiet and fast. The shredder fits in any area of the house because of the roller wheels. There is no need to take it apart or lift any part of it to move it anywhere in the house. The color is good and is low maintenance because of the shiny material it is made of. If any cleaning maintenance is needed, only a dry terry cloth will bring back the shine to it. It holds a good amount of shredded paper, making it convenient because of the large capacity it can hold, so there is less time having to empty the shredded material. A very good tool to have.
