Pros Reasonable speedRelatively fastHigh security, inexpensiveHigh security, inexpensiveSmall and compact, inexpensive
Cons Small bin, exaggerated capacityExpensive in relation to its performance, loudSlow, loudslow, loud, can't shred CDsSlow, not particularly powerful
Bottom Line Performs reasonably well, but is quite expensive for a low capacity modelSomewhat noisy, and there are more capable models available at the same priceGreat if you only shred the occasional document, but want the highest security standardAs long as you don't shred large stacks of documents and don't need to shred CDs, this this model will serve you wellPerfect if you only shred a few pages here and there, and don't have too much space to spare
