Advantages: Cheap, fast, 6 sheet shred
Disadvantages: Noisy, as expected
The Aurora AS610C is a great shredder, especially for use in the office. We use it to shred many things, from paper to card.
If you do shred a lot, you will have to empty the bin a lot. The bin is 11 litres in size so does hold quite a lot of shredded items.
We often shred a few sheets of paper, stapled together. Instead of having to pull out the staples before shredding, the AS610C also shreds staples, paperclips and even credit cards.
It is only a 6 sheet shredder, meaning don't shred anymore than 6 pages at a time. I have tried shredding higher, it does work, but do you really want to put strain on the motor inside? I certainly don't!
If you shred a lot, and are continuously shredding, sometimes a shredder can get quite hot. But with the AS610C that is not the case. It has a built in thermal cut out feature, which prevents the shredder from overheating. It also has a safety feature which prevents you from shredding when the waste bin is not attached. So you won't go shredding your fingers off.
The shredder is automatic, and also has a reverse function. All of these tiny features make the shredder a great tool to have by your desk at home, or at work. It is definitely worth the investment.
You can purchase this shredder for just under £30 online, again, this is a great price, especially for the quality of the shredder.
Overall, this is a great shredder and a lot better than most other shredder which often struggle.
Summary: Recommened definitely for home or office use
