Pros Reasonable speedFast, powerful, relatively quietFast, powerful, relatively quietIncredibly fast, high capacityFast, user friendly
Cons Small bin, exaggerated capacityExpensive, largeVery largeExpensiveExpensive
Bottom Line Performs reasonably well, but is quite expensive for a low capacity modelExpensive, but well worth the time savings for those that shred a lotA good model for those that shred 100+ pages a day, but there are faster models at the same price pointIf your shredding jobs reach triple digit page numbers, this machine will make your life a lot easierGood all-around performer, but not worth the high price
