I was doubtful after reading so many reviews for numerous shredders, as many reviews reported the number of pages shredded are not correct or the shredders overheat. This one seems to be a good buy. The weight of the shredder is really heavy in a good way, i.e. a feel of good quality and a sufficient motor. The shredder shreds perfectly well with 2--4 sheets so far. Even tried a credit card, which was no problem at all. I would expect shredders will jam and overheat if forced and continuously fed. Who shreds wads of paper continuously anyway?
