First off, as the name already clearly states, this shredder is one that can only do so much as far as its usage per day - in other words, if you currently have bags and bags filled with LOADS of paper, then you'd probably want to stop reading now.
Otherwise, on the other hand, if you are indeed looking to shred but not in a consistent manner (meaning that shredding will pretty much become a hobby that you just LOVE to spend time on), and furthermore happen to be cautious, then look no further! This shredder has taken care of all of my old school work that I've been dying to get rid of in a more convenient way, given that I'm pretty much lazy when it comes to crumbling thousands and thousands of sheets, if you ask me. Now, this does not go to say that, because of how much "paperwork" I have, that I should have gone elsewhere when it comes to picking a shredder. At such a price and with the included feature/benefit of cross-cutting that beheld me, there really wasn't any reason for me to turn this down.
As far as my personal perspective on the shredder's purpose, I view it as something that'll suit your needs - basically, my "scheme" towards shredding is taking it easy and just shredding whenever I'm either in a position wherein I happen to have time on my hands, or simply out of boredom. Keep in mind that with this shredder, I'm not looking to deal with important, confidential, "not-to-be-revealed" work; (if you've been reading around, you'll know why - if not, if your current status just so happens to be that you've just found your way out of a rock, then it's because of myself owning another Staples shredder, that being the MailMate™) simply, and only anything that's on paper and that's pretty much it. Ever since I purchased it back in November, I've been overall satisfied, due to it's fairly fast, but considerably noisy level of shredding, along with a small, simple design, despite the fact that it considerably doesn't live up to a quality-like standard - but let's not forget that you do get what you pay for!
