Good unit, but consider your usage., April 21, 2010By M. E. Elgan “Mike” (USA) –

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Shredder Essentials 6-Sheet Diamond-Cut Shredder (Office Product)

The unit is extremely light duty. Six pages are possible, but pushing it. It will also do one credit card, which is good. Included with the manual is a warning sheet stating that the unit is rated at an average continuous run time of 2-4 minutes. Past that time, damage to the unit may result due to overheating and the warranty is voided for such misuse. The shredder paper slot is tight for an 8×11 sheet of paper, allowing little “wiggle room” of paper width.

It is a diamond cut which is better than a strip cut, but not as good as a crosscut for security purposes. The diamonds are approximately 1.5in.x1/4in. (HxW), measured at max width point (middle of diamond).
The unit is small, which could be a plus or a minus. Basket and shredder measure 13in.x11in.x6in. (HxWxD). The waste receptacle (basket) is not big, and will fill up often. It is nice that the top of the basket will fit into a plastic grocery bag, for easy emptying and inexpensive refuse disposal. There is a window on the front of the basket to indicate when it should be emptied, which is nice. It should be emptied at that time to prevent recirculating paper from damaging the shredder, according to the manual.

So far, the unit has worked well considering price and better shred security of the diamond cut versus strip cut.
The information previously stated is not a problem for me, though I will need to keep all the things in mind while using the unit.

For the price/performance, and as long as you keep the stated information in mind, the unit may well work well for you.
