I received this shredder as a gift, believe it or not, I know, an unusual gift. It was given to me by friend's who had a rather bad experience after a purse snatching, identity theft became a concern. I must admit, I was never overly worried about how I discarded my personal papers until they convinced me of the necessity to be cautious with their disposal.
I am now glad I have this shredder which is ideal for a home office. It has a 3.8 gallon lightweight, plastic bin. It can shred up to six sheets at one time with a strip cut. The automatic start-stop button is an excellent safety feature as is the typical reverse power button for clearing paper jams which I have used on more than one occasion.
I doubt this shredder could be used in a busy, business office, it wouldn't be capable of the requirements needed. However, I find it to be an excellent product which serves my purposes efficiently.
