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!"

Great shredder can do alot at one time and is a good size for storage when not in use. Only drawback is small container has to be emptied often.

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

Good little workhorse for the amount of paper I need to shred. With sale price and coupon, I believe I got a great deal. Was actually a step up from the original smaller unit I was considering.

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

This shredder was recommended to me by a friend. I wanted a shredder that was compact to fit on my desk, but powerful enough to last. It seems like other (cheaper) shredders fall apart quickly. It can shred up to 12 pieces of paper at one time. The bin does have to be emptied often because of the smaller size, but I don't shred a lot at one time, so it's not a problem for me.

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

The mailmate M7 12-sheet cross-cut shredder is small in size but it does an incredible job of shredding!! Great product for the price including my rebate.
My first shredder so I had a lot to shred, hence the purchase of a brand new paper shredder. But as I lean towards going green in the future I won't have as many high piles to shred.

I tested the product as far as one sheet verses 11 sheets and its performance is excellent either way.

The bin is small and I had to empty it frequently but that didn't bother me. It actually forced me to keep my work area cleaner as I shredded.

I am very happy with this product and highly recommend it.

Mostly good

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

Positives: Pretty fast; relatively quiet; nice design; can be tucked away somewhere or displayed on a shelf

Negatives: The 'auto off' feature for power (if the machine hasn't been used for more than 10 minutes, I think) is great. But, the method for powering the machine back up is annoying. You're supposed to push the power button twice - but good luck figuring how quickly to do so. Too fast, and it won't power up. Too slow and it won't power up. It's a Goldilocks setting, and VERY annoying. Once, I took about 9-10 attempts before I got the timing right - and that's just WRONG!!! Staples has a good product here, but needs to redesign the 'auto off' feature.
