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!"

I am pleased

By Sylvia

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

After purchasing 2 other paper shredders within the past month - and having both of them stop working - one after shredding one bin full of paper - I decided to try this smaller model that seems designed to handle most routine household shredding jobs. My unit arrived last evening and I put it to the test. As noted in other reviews, getting the sheets lined up to enter the shredder (internally) can be a little bit of a challenge, but not a major problem. I do not find that frequently emptying the bin is a major inconvenience. And I like that the unit shuts itself down when the motor heats up. I will retrain myself to do my shredding is smaller batches. So far this unit has handled all that I have given it. It seems to be tough enough to handle the 12 sheets that it says it can handle. It is relatively quiet as shredders go. I am happy. But just in case I decided to purchase the extended warranty.

My Now Favorite Shredder of All

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

I am completely in love with this shredder. I have arthritic hands and this smaller version of shredders I have had in the past is perfect. It is very compact and the shredder drawer pulls out easily. I would highly recommend this shredder to all.

A decent shredder

By Dennis

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

I have been looking at replacements for my shredder for some time and I kept coming back to this model. Shredders seem to have grown over the years and I was surprised at how BIG some models which are supposed to be "space savers" or "compact" actually are. While this model is really designed to be a "table-top" unit, I do not have desktop space or a table in my very small home office space (an alcove about 5.5' x 5.5'.) Although compact, this shredder does not fit in the 9.5" space between the wall and the end of my desk where my old shredder resided. It's quite short to place on the floor so I have purchased a small step stool to place it on. What sold me on this shredder was it's specs. It has a more powerful motor than many much larger units. I have also found it to be surprisingly quiet. I'd rate it's speed as "moderate"; and while I have not tested its maximum sheet capacity of 12, it does shred 3 or 4 sheets of paper with ease. The bin capacity is mainly what separates it from the larger machines, but I think it's more than adequate for most people for home use. How hard is it to pull out a bin and empty the contents into a waste basket once a week or so?

Substantial Paper Shredder

By KenSea

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

This is a well built machine. Sturdy and solid. I bought it to replace a shredder I had that was about the same capacity and of similiar quality.

The first unit I had purchased did not work when I got it home. Brought it back to the store. Rep tested it and it was NG. Took another unit off the shelf and tested it. It was OK.

A little disappointed with getting a bad unit. Can only hope this machine holds up.

Great Little Shredder

By Wine Travel

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

Really like this product. Small footprint, shreds fine... I don't like to put a lot of sheets in at once... I use it for 2 or 3 at the max, often 1. Perfect for my home use. Like the way the waste basket comes out in front for emptying... and can see how full it is. Much nice than my old one where I had to lift off the whole unit from the top. Liked the price as was on sale. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
