To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Completely useless. Takes about 30 seconds to shred one sheet of A4. I spent more on a shredder, thinking that it would be a higher performance, but it is the worst one we have ever bought. I did ask to send it back but the collection was never made so shocking customer service too
First of all, I have to begin: no shredder on earth is worth four hundred pounds - that is the retail price of this machine! And if any shredder was worth that much, then I would expect it to shred absolutely anything, and not have to think what I am shredding, and how many sheets of paper you can put in at any one time. As it is, this machine when you read the manual DOES NOT shred MORE than it actually does!!
Okay, so the only plus is that if you are worried that perhaps you keep your bank details or any other personal information on CD-Rs that you need to get rid of but may fall into the wrong hands, (which is why I sent for this) then this is your machine, as it shreds them SO well into tiny little bits you need never worry of someone stealing your identity - it's just what you need! But this machine is STILL not worth that much money for that one useful facility, and it's interesting to note that despite the high RRP it's being sold at less than half of that!! (no coincidence!?) You can't even shred newspaper, cardboard or any transparent materials!!?? The machine we used previously cost about sixty pounds, and was a Rexel model ProStyle Confetti (see my review for that item) and with the exception of CDs, that shreds most of the stuff you put in it - and efficiently! This machine is also poorly constructed and extremely top-heavy. If you lean anything only slightly towards it, it will topple over... The castors are useful, but also serve as a hindrance in this area... Unless this machine is stood directly up against a wall you could have major problems of it falling over...
I'm really perplexed as to what it is that actually makes this machine SO expensive!?? If this won't shred SO much stuff, then what do you need to pay for a machine that does!?? Four hundred quid is WAAAY too much for any shredder that forbids the shredding of SO much material - anything more expensive than this, and I'd expect it to shred the universe!! Fortunately I got this to try via the Amazon Vine Programme, but I'm gob-smacked if anyone would actually pay such an amount for any shredder - let alone this one!
