Exceeded my high expectations, November 26, 2007By Tom S (Silicon Valley, CA USA) –

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Powershred MS-460Cs Safe Sense 10 sheet Confetti Cut Shredder (Office Product)

My previous shredder was a 1999 Fellowes PS-80, which still works like new, after reliably shredding thousands of documents over the past 8 years. In order to protect my hearing, I have been wearing industrial ear muffs whenever I shred more than a few pages with this old machine. When I read about this new “quiet” MS-460Cs shredder, I decided it was time for an upgrade.

Based on the advertising and the reviews, I expected the shredder to be quiet, but am amazed at HOW quiet this new machine is. The roar of my old PS-80 has been replaced by the gentle hum of the MS-460Cs. I can continue a phone conversation or listen to the radio while the shredder is running. I can leave my hearing protection gear in the garage, where it belongs.

The paper shredding performance is robust, as described in some other reviews. Paper is chopped into tiny mulch, and the motor is rated to run for up to 10 minutes continuously before requiring time to cool down. This is more than adequate for my needs.

There is a second, smaller opening for CDs and credit cards, which shreds items into strips. This is a security compromise, as I believe that a motivated thief could reconstruct a strip-shredded credit card and reconstruct the account number. To get a true cross-cut shred for the credit card, I feed the strips back into the shredder horizontally for a second pass. This is inconvenient, but it acceptable since credit card shredding is fairly infrequent for me.

The controls are simple and intuitive. A Green LED indicates when the power is ON. There is an automatic sensor which turns the blades forward when papers or CDs / Credit Cards are inserted. There are also manual “ON” switches for both forward and reverse, which is convenient for maintenance or for shredding small items which do not trigger the automatic sensors. A 4 ounce bottle of oil is included with the shredder.

This machine has advanced safety features. I was especially impressed how this shredder automatically and instantly pauses the motor and illuminates an orange LED if a person touches any area near the blades. The motor also stops if the waste basket is removed.

The machine is tall, but fits nicely under my desk and easily rolls out on the included casters. There are recessed handles in the front and back of the machine to facilitate carrying the shredder if you are not able to roll it across your floor.

If you can afford the price, the MS-460Cs is a good value considering the quiet and robust shredding performance, safe, easy to use design, and Fellowes track record of building reliable, long lasting equipment.

Note – I am in no way affiliated with Fellowes or Amazon, but I do have high standards and appreciate a quality product.
