Advantages: Cheap, effective.
Disadvantages: See review.
I bought two of these shredders in a local discount store, at just £1 each I couldn't see any reason not to buy them!
I have been using one of them for about 16 months now and it is still working fine, the blades do seem to have worn a little but not enough to cause any sort of problems.
It is recommended that you only shred one sheet at a time but I will occasionally put 2 pieces of paper through the shredder together and although it is a little harder to turn the handle it will shred the 2 pieces of paper.
It comes in 2 pieces, the bottom tub which holds all the shredded paper and the top bit where the shredding mechanism is, the handle also comes off.
Sometimes if I have put through too much paper without emptying the tub, little bit's of paper will get trapped under the lid which are impossible to remove without unscrewing the whole top unit! They don't affect the shredder but do make it look a little tatty.
I suppose the main purpose of a shredder is to destroy important documents, which this does with ease. It's nothing fancy and only cut's in strips but it is much better than simply throwing your details into the hands of a stranger!
These shredders can be bought at ~
www.ryman.co.uk for the bargain price of £4.99 and come in either blue or pink.
Summary: A cheap effective way to stop your details being used!
