Fellowes Powershred 79Ci Cross-Cut Shredder is rated4.76 out of5 by692.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from my 3rd shredderThe 79Ci seems to be a real performer! It can handle multiple sheets and envelopes, discs, and credit cards – yes, I chewed up a disc and one of my wife's credit cards (she’ll never miss it) just to see if it would take ‘em! I’ve deliberately overloaded it too but, unlike my previous shredders this dandy doesn’t overheat and smoke, it very politely stops, reverses a tad, and lets me take out the jam without triggering my Tourette’s!The only issues I’ve encountered are related to the bin. First, the shreds triggers a ‘full bag’ indicator long before the bag is actually full - to correct that I have to open the bin and compact the shreds by hand. Secondly, when I push the bin back in place it doesn’t always seat properly which keeps the machine from running. These are both minor annoyances and don’t cancel out the joy of buzzing my junk mail out of existence! I can’t wait to see what it’ll do to my taxes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Say goodbye to junk mailMy prior shredder jammed and then completely stopped working so I needed a new one. One thing I do not like is junk mail. With my old shredder, I had to open every piece of mail, junk mail included, and then feed no more than 6 sheets in it at a time. Shredding took a long time and was a chore that no one wanted to do. Researching the various shredders on the market, I found the 79Ci and, based on other reviews and its specifications, I purchased it. Just received it and started shredding 'unopened' mail and this shredder handled it with ease! The 79Ci is quiet when shredding and has a gauge on the right side that indicates how close you are getting to its maximum number of pages it can shred. Very handy to know. I am just very pleased that I can just shred the mail while it is still in the envelopes. Thank you!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and safe shredderPowerShred 79Ci is just what I needed...I have tried other brands and was disappointed! This shredder I can use without any problem and I have arthritis in hands and am over 70yrs old! My grandchildren like to help me shred and it safe for them too! So glad I found this shredder for all the papers I must shred like mine and my relatives personal papers! It really is the "World's Toughest Shredder"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty Awesome!!I just got this shredder today and I have been shredding sensitive legal documents for about an hour now and I have had zero issues. This thing makes it fun to shred paper (as fun as it could possibly be)!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 79ciI have only one issue and it has to do with the casters (wheels) they do not go on very easy and they do not stay in place. Would have liked to just be able to snap them in and be done with it. Other than that issue the shredder works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely Jam ProofI don't have time to mess around with things when they don't work properly. That's why I bought the 79Ci. It looked like it was robust enough to not jam...and it never jams! I love that. I have had shredders in the past that took so much time to feed carefully that you hated to have to use them. If you want a hassle-free, multi-sheet shredder, this is the one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Choice for Small Office Document and Media Disposal SecurityI always research extensively before making important purchases. I have been wanting to add a shredder to my small home office for quite some time and finally came to a decision on the Fellowes Powershred 79Ci. Glad I did. Amazon.com had the best price and I was even able to get even more of a reduction on the already low price by using my American Express Membership Rewards Points! The Fellowes Powershed 79Ci Crosscut Shredder arrived in only 2 days from Amazon.com. The first thing I noticed is how heavy the box was when I picked it up. The majority of the weight is in the shredding unit itself that sits on top of the shredder stand. It is well built although I was a bit surprised the stand and basket seemed a bit flimsy for such a heavy shredder. I am not using the caster wheels that came with it because the unit will be sitting on the carpet. The shredder came with caster wheels, a small bottle of oil, registration card, a few plastic bags for the wastebasket, operators manual and several quick start inserts. I won't be using the bags. Installation was easy. Be careful when putting the shredder on the stand. I can see how easily the top of the shredder stand could be cracked if someone were to force it. Also keep your hands away from the blades on the bottom of the shredder when installing. I also read where some people are having problems when inserting the caster wheels, cracking the insert points. Once assembled, simply plug in the unit, make sure the switch is on, on the back of the shredder and push the power button. You are now ready to shred. The first thing I noticed is how quiet the shredder is and it shreds with ease. Even though this shredder is crosscut and not a micro cut it still gets a high-security rating and does an excellent job of cutting paper into very small confetti-like pieces. It also shreds media such as credit cards, DVD's and CD's and not to worry if you accidentally run an errant paperclip or staple through the shredder. It will handle those as well. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase. Only time will tell how it will hold up in the long term. I'm hoping It will provide me many years of service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 79Ci ShredderOverall the 779Ci is a good product. The only problem I can see is that the Pull Out Bin indicates full too soon and requires opening the bin, compressing the contents and re-seating the bin several time before the bin is actually full.
