Bought in 2012 and only issue is that it does not auto shut off. Besides that it shreds as it should. For those folks who want to shred and shred and shred you will be spending 1000's of dollars for higher end shredders. for the price, this has proven itself for me

Lasted exactly to the end of the ONE YEAR Warranty , then just stopped.
Not because of too many sheets at once, just decided to stop working when turned on one day.
I have to go buy another, and it won't be called ATIVA.
Love Office Depot,
but this one does not belong in your inventory.........

Great Christmas gift but very disappointed when I went to use it. According to the box it shreds 250 pages within 5 minutes and doing 8 pages at a time. I seperated the paper into sets of 5 and only got to do 185 1/2 pages done within 5 minutes and it was overheated. Had to wait 1 hour to start again. I did for a second time and was only able to do it for 4 minutes and overheated again. It is very fustrating when you have other things to do on your day off than waiting for a shreddar to cool off. I would not recommend these product to anyone. Not Quiet.

ativa mini shredder
Much smaller than the one I had. You can't put a liner in it and have it work.
