I have rated the bin capacity on this shredder as adequate - it is a small shredder and I use it for my small business. I don't shred tons of documents, but I do use it for sensitive client information.

The clear bin drawer that slides out the front of the machine for emptying is great. One can see when the drawer needs to be emptied, and a sturdy pull handle on the front of the bin is the ultimate in easy access. It's not like those machines where the heavy shredder head has to be removed from the top of the bin and placed somewhere so that the bin can be emptied.
I like the quiet operation - machines don't have to be noisy to do their jobs well. I also like the ease of operation. All the buttons are right on top of the machine next to the shredder slot and there aren't too many of them. The machine has an automatic shut down; one does't need to remember to turn it off after use.
The machine is supposed to be able to shred cds, credit cards and even paper clips, but I haven't tried it on those things.

This shredder, in itself, works great. It looks good, shreds fast, and easy to empty.

But the "power button" must've been designed with the intent to frustate you. The shredder goes into sleep mode after five minutes of inactivity. You're supposed to press the power button twice to turn it on. BUT IT DOESN'T WORK. You have to keep pressing it repeatedly and then it will eventually decide to come on. Just now, it took 50 presses to turn it on. 50 PRESSES. On top of that, the button is reccessed so it's not exactly comfortable to push. This "sleep" feature seems like a marketing gimmick. I have a 15-year-old Fellowes shredder that never sleeps and testing with my Kill-A-Watt shows it doesn't even use enough power (< .1w) to register a draw during inactivity.

I'm past my 30 days to return this and already sent in the mail-in-rebate. I will try to take it back to the store to see if they can do an exchange. Maybe my unit is defective but it seems other reviewers have this problem too.

I think the MailMate could be a great product if it has a simple ON/OFF/AUTO button instead of this awful design flaw. It boggles my mind that people worked on this product and decided "Oh, wouldn't it be great if we came up with a button that consumers have to press and they can play games to see how many times it takes to turn it on! Oh yeah, we got a winner! Write up an algorithm to select a random number and use that to determine when the shredder comes on! Brilliant!"

Amazing Compact Shredder!!!

Comments about Staples® Mailmate M7 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder:

This is great shredder for a small office or a home use. I like this shredder for many positive features: quiet, small paper trash, easy to empty, convenient switch on/off buttons, easy to use and set up. Simply take out of the box and ready to use. I can't tell about durability and last longness, I'm using it for a month now. It's feels and looks high quality product. As of now, I have nothing to complain. I'm happy with this purchase and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a small shredder. Almost forgot to mention the security feature that as soon as trash bin is pulled it witches off automatically. I found it helpful.

Second Staples Shredder for me...

Comments about Staples® Mailmate M7 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder:

This is my second purchase of a Staples cross cut shredder. It is quieter than the previous one; seems to be more sensibly designed- when the power source is engageded the shredder is operational. The extra on button is no longer in the back of the unit.

I was very pleased with the first shredder; unfortuately I was not aware of the need to use lubrication on the machine. Eventually the gears would no longer engage properly. I was pleased to purchase a second shredder at a reasonable price and did not even look at any other brands.

I received great customer support at my local Staples store as a significant amount of time was spent on trying to make the old shredder work. When it was clear this wasn't going to happen, I purchased a new unit and my old one was left to be recycled by Staples. I was particularly happy about this recycling service.

Comments about Staples® Mailmate M7 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder:

This is a great shredder with one big problem. It has a defect in the sensor when cutting paper. It wont feed! No matter how I insert paper or pressure I put on it, the darn thing refuses to work!! It's a great shredder and you can tell its powerful with great price to boot! But alas the mfg should fix this as they'd make a bundle!

Shredder

Comments about Staples® Mailmate M7 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder:

The shredder is small but very compact. It is quiet and easy to open and empty the shredder contents into a plastic sack for disposal. I purchased it for home use; I think it would be too small for a typical office. The purchase price of $ 69.99 was reasonable due to the fact there was a $ 15.00 rebate available.

Staples Mailmate M7

Comments about Staples® Mailmate M7 12-Sheet Cross-Cut Shredder:

Nice size - fits nicely on a shelf right behind my desk. Love that you don't have to take the shredding mechanism off to empty the receptacle - and don't have to deal with bags. It is a little tricky to get the paper in just right so it shreds, but maybe that will improve with use.
