Equipped with a 9" paper entry, the DS-1 easily accepts letter or legal size documents, and features durable steel cutters that accept credit cards, envelopes, staples, and small paper clips. Includes 4.75-gallon mesh step-can style wastebasket which can easily be emptied by stepping down and lifting basket out. Magnetic safety interlock stops shredder when wastebasket is removed.

What's great about it: Last shredder you may need
What's not so great: Non so far
I have had many sherrders over the years and this one is the best. This one has good storage room. Also, it is easy to empty since the basket removes by putting foward. The Confetti-Cut makes peices small and compact. It can handle more than just a couple of peices at a time it.
I would recommend this to a friend!

I was happy with this shredder. I read a ton of reviews and settled with this one. I was pleased for both me and my cats who had to use the shredded paper to potty on. (They got thier claws out)

What's great about it: None
What's not so great: Just doesn't work at all
I bought this shredder at Best Buy, where it sold for just under $95...not the 69.99 shown on the page that links to this site. I decided to purchase it, anyway. I brought it home, removed the styrofoam, plugged it in, and hit the button. Nothing happened. The motor hums when you hit the "reverse" button, but nothing happens when you try to go forward and feed your paper through.
This printer was clearly in its original packaging. It didn't look like another buy had opened it and returned it.
Now, I wish I'd listened to Jake. Don't waste your time and money.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Bought this product at Best Buy. Turned it on and used it for all of 3 minutes when it stopped working. Called the manufacturer 800 number who recommended returning it to the store because it was defective.
Save your time and $$.
