Great For Home Use, Iffy For Business, September 14, 2011By Misty Baker (Texas) –

This review is from: AmazonBasics 8-Sheet Strip-Cut Paper/CD/Credit Card Shredder with Basket (Office Product) Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

As a person who owns their own business I am in constant need of a shredder, and because of this need I go through them like I go through socks. Often.

I decided to take a chance on this shredder for 1 reason. My current shredder took a trip shredder heaven (aka it went up in smoke and is now acting as more of a corner catch-all than a functioning piece of equipment.

Anyways, here are the pros and cons I have discovered over the last few weeks.


*It’s compact
*It shreds “paper” like a dream (even if it will only take 8 or so sheets at a time) The motor speed is crazy fast
*Easy to set up, Easy to use.
*The shredder head detaches from the top of the basket making clean up/out a snap.

*Even though it has a slip for cards/CD’s it struggles to shred them. (I found myself having to feed them though at least 2 times before they were properly demolished.)
*It’s not a cross-cut shredder which is a bit of an issue if you are running a business that deals in highly classified or sensitive material. (This is obviously not an issue if you are just using if for basic bills or junk mail.)
*When the bin/basket is full the motor will continually run. (Don’t know why…but it’s a fact.)

All in all…I think it’s a reasonably price shredder for home use, but is lacking for anyone needing a business shredder.
