I've had cheap shredders before and they always got hot and eventually jammed or quit on me, but I could get them unjammed and keep them going for a while until after a year or three they died and left me without a shredder for a few years. This time, I decided to splurge and buy one of these long-running Bonsai shredders with a cooling fan. I settled on the C149 because it seemed the right feature-price level for my light home use. Wow. This thing doesn't get hot and doesn't quit. I get bored of shredding long before it gets tired of eating paper. Takes no time at all to fill the bin and then I'm off to dump it in the recycling. I've only had it for two days so this could just be the honeymoon period, but at least I don't regret spending the extra money on a ****** shredder.
BEST shredder ever!
I did a LOT of research to replace my 20yr old strip shredder. This is just for home use, but I didn't want to be bying another one for a long time. I wanted it to have a descent duty cycle and be quiet...shhhh! This excels at both. The best is how quiet it is since so many shredders are horribly loud, even $100+ units. Yea, this was about $150 the quiet and durability make it worth it. And how do they get such a long duty cycle allowing you to run it for an hour before a possible cool down?...simply by adding a fan to the shredder motor so it cools as it shreds. Highly recommended!
Super quiet shredding
I hate shredders, but for security these days, we all need one to shred the paperwork with our personal information on it. Actually, I should say that I used to hate them. This Bonsaii EverShred C149-C is AMAZINGLY QUIET. Seems most shredders sound like a wood chipper, but this one does not. It was an incredible difference. You can hear it running, but it doesn't make your ears bleed. It does work well also. 18-sheets is doable. It does get warm after 20 minutes of running. So short resting periods would be recommended. I would definitely recommend this shredder.
Love this workhorse!!
Have had it and running it about a year now sits by front door of apartment and is constantly in use to dispose of confidential junkmail works great!! large bin size is awesome, and destroys old credit cards and cd/dvds great too!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!! NOT paid or compensated for my review!
A star in the office.
Anyone who usually buys a piece of office equipment or an appliance at my company usually gets snide comments regarding how the unit fails to live up to it's promise. "Who bought this piece of..." Not so with this unit, nothing but positive comments. "Love" has been used a couple of times. Eats everything you throw at it without even straining including CDs and credit cards. Full indicator works and the window in the basket is a great feature. We don't use it for hours on end, but we will chew up a 100+ pages at a time
Have owned many shredders, this is by far the best one. Had a large shredding project and my other shredder which was not a cheap one would overheat frequently and take a long time to cool down. Bought the Bonsaii C149-C based on reviews. Continuous shredding on and off for hours at a time with only short breaks and it never overheated once. 18 sheet capacity is a bit of a stretch, 8-10 at time is more realistic but that is far better than most shredders that can barely handle 3-4. The shredding speed is slower than I was used to but motor more powerful, a trade-off I can accept. My only wish would be for a larger bin about 3x the size. This is a great machine and though more expensive well worth it compared to the frustration that comes with cheaper shredders that overheat constantly. Highly recommended.
Not your economy model.
My material to shred is usually generated at the office, where there is a venerable shredder of the "home office" type. When it became necessary to have a shredder at home, I searched the reviews principally here on Amazon. This shredder met my expectations 100%. It is a cross-cut shredder, which has a durable motor with an extended duty cycle. Most of the shredding we will do is regular office bond paper. Regarding the occasional comments that it does not satisfactorily shred its advertised number of sheets, rack it up to marketing. The instruction manual, if read, actually addresses most of the non-positive comments made in reviews of this product. Limit the sheets fed into the shredder to 8 at a time, if that many. Don't forget that the on-off switch is behind the unit. Better to fold wide sheets than to expect the motor to pull them through the throat askew. The unit is heavier than most of the shredders I've encountered, but I knew how much it weighed when I ordered it, and I ordered it with the belief that the "heavier" would equate with "more durable". The casters help if the shredder needs to be re-located. Finally, it is a quieter shredder than the one I use at work; not at all a bothersome noise in the home office. I expect to get good service from this shredder.
Worth the investment
So far we have no issues with this shredder. Our old shredder died on us and we needed something that shredded alot without overheating in a short period of time. This shredder is quiet and actually runs for a long time, it has not overheated yet. It came with little garbage bags for the shredded paper, that's a plus. It is quite bulky and has a little weight to it, also has a built in fan that keeps motor cool as it shreds.
