Disadvantages: No window on the bin
The first one of these I bought was faulty, but to Aurora's credit, the sent me a new one without requiring the old one back, very swiftly and without quibble.
Anyway, the one that I have now has been reliable and is an excellent product - it cross shreds, and also deals with cards and CD's. It doesn't get jammed as easily as some models do. Noise is to be expected on these things, but this one doesn't seem too loud to me. It copes with the odd staple or paper clip fine too.
I bought mine 3 years ago and it's still going strong.
Some of the higher models have a window in the bin, which would be useful to see when it's getting full - bit of an oversight here perhaps. Also, the ability to slice a CD could be useful but I'm just being picky now - more expensive models are available that can do these things.
All in all it does what it's supposed to.
Summary: A good product
