Pull the plug

Pros: Easy to Use
Cons: Design, durability
This shredder is like most shredders in it's price range, mediocre. It says 10 sheets at a time, but really you should only do a couple at a time tops, the shred accumulates and clogs up in the cavities around the shredding mechanism, which is difficult to clear, and affects the performance of the shredder. And after about 3 to 6 months, something will break and you will have to buy a new one. Time for someone to design a concept for a better shredder to keep landfills from overflowing with cheap, broken shredders, like this one next to me.

Doesn't work out of the box

Bought it, brought it home 30 miles away, plugged it in and nothing! Returning it tomorrow.

needs improvement

The shredder does a good job, but the paper feed cover is poorly designed. It cracked in the middle with 6 sheets going through. It's past 30 days, so would have to be returned to the company shipping paid. When it breaks more I will junk it and purchase a different brand.

does the job

Pros: value, Easy to Use, Design
It is sturdy and does handle 10 sheets at a time. Within my first day of use the ready green light disappeared and hasn't returned. I also had to do a reverse cleanout because it stopped. I followed the directions and had it back up and chomping away on those old bank statements. It still seems to accumulate extra paper in the corners with much dust. I'll know after this month's file purge if these are real problems.

Does a good job

This shredder does a good job of handling a load and shreds to good, small pieces.

Horrible Shredder

Cons: safety mechanism
The built-in safety interlock mechanism is very difficult to master. I am throwing this shredder out and will go to a store to pick out a new one that is easier to operate.

ok ,were shredding.

The Nuova AU1080MA shredder is just as it reads 10 sheet cap. sheets max ,quiet and doesn't slow to power descent on a credit card; shred as you well say 10 max sheet but more like 4and 5 sheets to survive long life.

Made a Molehill Out of a Mountain!

Pros: value, Quiet, Performance, small shred size
Cons: Design, can't shred window envelopes
This shredder did a great job of turning my old files into confetti. Don't let the plain box fool you. It does an excellent job on unopened junk mail and credit cards. Quiet too! The only drawback is the instructions say no window envelopes.

Great buy. . .so far

Great price and action for a micro-cut shredder. . . only used it for one week: it's rather quiet, and shreds without any difficulty.
