Tech Solutions makes a very long lasting and durable paper shredder. This machine has lasted for years. My husband had went to Walmart and purchased it and because of the great cost, he got it. We have never regretted this purchase. It has been used a million times over and has never failed to work. It has never needed any kind of repairs. I would recommend this brand if you are looking for a good value and real durability. It was purchased about seven years ago.We use it in the office all the time and it is great for eliminating papers that would go into the trash. It is so much safer and helps us protect ourselves from idenity theft. It is easy to use, easy to clean and ours is a grey color. It is also great because you do not have to use as many trash bags when all the paper is shredded. It packs up and out to the trash much easier. It has also stayed in great shape. The outside is just as easy to clean. I just spray it with a little 409.
