First off, I visited one of my local Staples stores to look at this shredder. They did not have it on display even though the clerk told me the one displayed was the shredder I was looking for (it was actually the old model which is being discontinued). I showed him the picture and he said that sometimes the pictures aren't exactly what they look like--I thought to mysel this guy doesn't know what he is talking about. I saw the boxes up on the high shelves and told him, that they look like the picture I brought from Staples website. Guess what? It was the shredder; good thing I didn't listen to that clerk!

Now on to this shredder: Was excited to get this brand new model shredder because it was on sale and it has a door on it which reveals a separate shredder basket inside, which was just like my older Staples brand shredder. I always use plastic shredder bags and on the old shredder, the plastic bag was hidden once you closed the door. But on this shredder, you can see and feel the bag with the door closed--don't necessarily like that. This shredder is definately louder than the older one--you would think for the price of this shredder, that it would be quieter but it isn't! Also for the price, I think the Micro Cut would be smaller in size. This shredder has clean looking lines and is appealing to the eye. Time will tell how this one stands up to almost daily home use. (My old one still works.) I think I would still recommend a buy on this one.

We've had this shredder for a little over a year. We don't overuse it - but it does get used on a daily basis - for single sheets of paper mostly. We are a small business.

First, the bin is a bit small. We sometimes have to empty it twice a week. It's a mess to empty - I tried using the liners for the bin - but it doesn't make any difference - the stuff goes everywhere. I think this is probably just par for the shredder course - no matter what kind or size shredder you have.

I do prefer the micro-shred to either cross-cut or strip shredding - that's a big upside for me.

The auto-feed detector broke after a little over a year. That means we have to stand there for every sheet of paper and push the button to start the shredder - and then babysit while it shreds. No. I'm not doing that.

We had purchased a one-year extended warranty - but - lo and behold - the shredder broke after the warranty expired! So, now I just have to decide whether to fix this one - 'cause it shreds fine - or bite the bullet and buy another shredder that has an auto-feed that works. If I do, it WON'T be a STAPLES shredder - you can bet on that.

GREAT SHREDDER

By DALLAS

Comments about Staples® 16-Sheet Micro-Cut Shredder:

THE SHREDDER IS GREAT. ONLY THING I DISLIKE IS I WISH THE PAPER FEEDER WERE A FEW INCHES WIDER, BUT IT STILL FITS A STANDARD LETTER SIZED PIECE OF PAPER.

THE MACHINE HAS A NICE QUIET OPERATION AND AN EXTREMELY EASY WAY TO OPEN THE FRONT AND REMOVE THE PAPER BIN. ALSO NICE IS THE FACT THAT YOU GET A SIGNAL WHEN THE PAPER BIN IS GETTING FULL AND YOU NEED TO REPOSITION THE PAPER A LITTLE TO FIT MORE IN.

NICE SIZE AND EASY OPERATIONAL BUTTONS. ATTRACTIVE IN ANY OFFICE SETTING (HOME OR OFFICE). WOULD BUY AGAIN IF I NEEDED TO.

I LIKE THIS SHREDDER

By Ray

Comments about Staples® 16-Sheet Micro-Cut Shredder:

I purchased a shredder years ago that was a mid grade shredder. It finally gave up the ghost after 6 years of hard use and kids. I searched around for a new shredder and decided to get the Staples micro cut shredder. I got a good shredder. I had no idea how the technology changed in 6 years. I like the features built in that will shut the shredder down if it senses problems. I normally don't send a lot of sheets through at one time so it works really well. It will get hot after a long amount of time running. It will sense when it gets too hot and will shut down to prevent damage to the shredder. I have shredded 10+ garbage bags or more through this shredder and it runs like a charm. It really chips the paper up into tiny pieces. I also like the fact it has a light on the inside that illuminate the catch bin. It also holds a lot of paper too. Occasionally you will need to check the bin because the paper will pile up on you. You can spread it out and pack it down periodically and get a lot of shredded paper in it to fill a bag. My friend uses the paper to till into his garden. I helps hold the moisture in when he waters. I breaks down fairly fast too.

Fabulous machine!!!

Comments about Staples® 16-Sheet Micro-Cut Shredder:

I had lots of shredding that needed to be done. Lots of old files, papers, CDs and junk mail. I had previously been through several shredders and decided this time to get the professional model. Decided this model would fit the bill. It was out of stock at my local store. They ordered it and within two days I had it home. Immediately I put it to work. It handled everything without hesitation. CDs no problem, junk mail no problem, files no problem. Quiet smooth operation. Love it!
