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.

This thing is a disaster it shreds paper into paper dust which makes a huge mess is you open the canister which you have to do to keep the paper down.

        Works great, worth the price

        By Mike

        from Ocala, FL

        Comments about Staples 16-Sheet Micro-Cut Shredder:

        We have had a number of shredders over the years. We really had a hard time crossing over the $100 price point. We receive an enormous amount of junk mail and I was tired of having to open the mail to feed the machine. This machine was on sale and we decided to take a chance.

        This machine has worked beyond our expectations. The mail will collect for a few days before the machine gets fed. The thick credit card envelopes or the cardboard coupon fliers, just feed them in and it never hesitates. This machine has not had timed out or overheated. The pieces are small enough and thuroughly shredded. We should have done this sooner.
