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!"

Fantastic shredder

By SueZQ

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

This a great shredder. It never bogged down and kept running. I had years of papers to shred. I cleaned out my old business files (way over due), so the shredder had a real work out. I especially like the cross shredding. I never had one like this before and I felt safe that all my inportant information couldn't be traced back. I kept a large plastic bag close by, so it was very easy to dump the bin into it when it got full. It was so simple without lifting the top like the old timey shredders. It's compact and takes up a small amount of space. Oh, did I mention, it's very quiet.

Does a good job.

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

I like the pull out container with the handle. It works well. We had to get used to the different way the feed is from our previous one, but once we did, it works well. The difference in feeds might have been to try to make this newer one safer.

My office shredder

By Shredder

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

I find it very hard to get a page started shredding, especially if it is a flimsy piece of paper. Never had this trouble with any other shredder. Otherwise, size, etc. is excellent for where I have it. My husband one has a larger one in his office but I wanted a little one in my office. That way I didn't have to remember to take things to his.
