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!"

It works.

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

This shredder works fine, except for one thing. Feeding the paper into the slot is rather difficult. It takes some fiddling to get it to feed. It's almost like you have to feed the paper in an inch or so to get the machine to grab the paper and start the shredding process. I got this one for several reasons. 1. It was small and did not take up much space. 2. It shreds 12 sheets and crosscuts and 3. It had a $15 rebate which put it into my price range. That being said, I would for sure return it if I had paid the $89 dollar price, but since with the rebate it comes out to less, I"m going to keep it because it's worth that much. If you are looking for ease of use, pick another model.

decent when it works

By tai

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

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

I brought two of these. The on button on the first on needed a hard push to turn on. I mean a very very hard push. But it broke after a year. The on button on the second shredder worked much better. Like clockwork, the second one also broke a little over a year.

When it is working it is pretty good. But it is not very durable.

PINT SIZED SHREDDER

By MISS KOBR

Verified Buyer
This customer has reached Associate level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

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

I LIKE THE SIZE AND PRETTY EASY TO USE. YOU HAVE TO SLANT THE PAPER TO GET IT IN THE SLOT, IT WOULD SEEM THAT IT WOULD BE STRAIGHT UP AND THEN DOWN IN BUT IT IS NOT. I WISH THERE WAS A NOTIFICATION LIGHT TO TELL YOU WHEN YOU WERE FULL AS IT KEEPS GOING AND THE PAPER BECOMES STUFFED AND THEN MAKES A REAL MESS WHEN YOU PULL OUT THE DRAWER. THE 4 MINUTES MAX SHREDDING TIME CAN NEVER BE A PROBLEM AS IT FILLS UP TO MUCH VERY FAST. MESSY WHEN YOU PULL OUT IF OVER STUFFED. I DID A BIG PROJECT BUT PLAN ON USING IT DAILY TO KEEP MYSELF CURRENT.

Excellent compact shredder

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

Very good for the smaller sherdding jobs, particularly mail and receipts. Removable collection basket makes it extremely convenient to empty. Complements to more heavy duty shredders.
