Delicate and quirky
Unit performed well immediately after purchase and then the fun began. The cover over the port for items to be shredded broke off. Thus disabled (and without factory service! or spare parts availability) we tried to get the thing to work with absurd results. Holding the cover in place and turning the unit on with it's slide switch would allow the insertion of one sheet and that being shredded only half way.
Too much mickey mouse.

It could handle 10 sheets of paper without issue. It seemed to struggle with anymore than that. I wasn't testing its capabilities, and it never jammed on me, but the machine slowed down and sounded like it was efforting quite a bit to do more than 10.
The shredder was massive. It was really to large to be convenient for home office use. It might look more normal for small business office somewhere in a hallway next to a copy machine or something. It also has a very strange 'safety' mechanism on the top of the shredder where you put the paper in. My opinion was that it was noisier than average as well.
I give Office Depot a score of 10 of 10 on customer service with this shopping experience. However, my particular product didn't work properly right from the start. It was powered on but it didn't 'sense' that paper was in the feeder and ready to go consistently. Required multiple power cycles to get it to work randomly. I ended up having to return the product.

Great Basic Shredder
I can't say anything bad about this shredder - I've had it for about a year and it's never jammed (I never put more than 8-10 pages in), it works as promised and it has a separate slot for credit and hotel room cards. You have to make sure that the bin is all the way in as it has an auto-off safety feature. Noise level isn't too bad. The one I had before this was much louder. I'd say it's a great basic cross cut shredder!

Works well but noisy
I just purchased this shredder and it seems to work as advertised. However it is very noisy with an irritating high-pitched whine which may force me to return it for a different model.
