Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 780reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome machine 2nd purchase only because parts were too expensive January 6, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by The shredder that changed my life.. We all know how most paper shredders work right, I mean it's pretty simple and all it does is "shred paper" but that isn't the case with the Powershred® 79Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder. I can genuinely say it impacted my life drastically, as an active and busy person there comes many documents and papers I need to look over and get rid of, the Powershred® 79Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder did the job in seconds and saved me loads of my time. Before this shredder I use to cut my papers and documents with scissors which could take up to hours and It would always leave me anxious and paranoid of my documents ending up somewhere. With these papers cut up so small from the shredder I was never left in a daze. The pros of this machine include it is very user-friendly; requires no skill in anything to use (honestly), it is very effective and efficient, it has a nice colour and appeal to it, easily transportable, and it can cut up to 6 sheets at once! That last pro is definitely the cherry on top, a classy elegant shredder like this is so hard to find now-a- days and the fact this shredder can cut 6 SHEETS AT ONCE really makes living on this earth more bearable. I can say I feel excited about shredding paper, I look forward to documents and papers that need cutting; heck I could even say this shredder impacted my life style in a stronger way. This review isn't even about the money, its about the fact I am genuinely trying to advertise the beauty of this product. This has been my most smart and useful purchase in the last 10 years and I strongly advise and recommend that you visit your local Canadian Tire or Walmart store and swipe your VISA card for a Powershred® 79Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder. Guaranteed you will not regret it, If I had a review like this to show me the insight of what this product does I would be thanking the lord for coming across it. Treat yourself and go buy this paper shredder, it works miracles. January 4, 2017
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product easy to set up, quiet operation, no need to turn on, great idea for the shredding of dvd's and cd's. nice size bin. we are VERY happy with our purchase of your product. December 28, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great shredder This shredder is so efficient and quiet. The whole building no longer has to hear when I shred documents. My only issue is that for as big as it is, it seems to want to be emptied earlier than even my small one does. That being said, it does tell you it is full, instead of jamming like my old one does. Would recommend it. December 21, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed Rolling wheels make it difficult to use - have to brace the shredder against something else to use. Very difficult to get paper into the shredder - can NOT put in just one or two pieces because the "safety" mechanism won't slide out of the way. It simply crunches up the paper. Have to put at least four sheets in to make it stiff enough to push the safety mechanism out of the way. Works OK if you have lots of paper, but if you have an odd couple sheets to do, you have to fold them to make it stiffer so it will enter the shredder. December 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seems to be an excellent product I just received and set-up my shredder. It was well packed, easy to assemble, and seems to work well. I was most surprised at how quiet it is. It has all the features I was looking for - greater than 5-6 pages can be shredded at once, it can handle staples and small paperclips, shreds CDs and credit cards, has a pull out trash/recycle bin, easy to see when full as well as an indicator light, came with oil and applicator, on wheels so easily moved, energy efficient, and lots of safety devices built in. My only complaint is the shredder head is very heavy. Good thing you only have to handle it once or twice. Document the CRC # on the bottom of the shredder head before putting it on; that way you don't have to mess with it when you go to register. December 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very efficient for dental office or practice! This shredder is great to have deskside. It can handle shredding a good amount of paper at one time and it is also very quiet compared to some other shredders. It is also a great size for conserving desk space. November 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Shredder! I've only had my shredder about a week but it is hands-down the BEST shredder I've ever purchased. I've had big shredders and small shredders and this Fellowes shredder is quieter, has more features, and looks the best. LOVE IT so far!!! November 14, 2016
