Expected It To Work Longer
I got this Ativa Micro Cut Shredder for Christmas and was delighted with it at first. I never put more than three sheets of paper in it at a time and never ran it for more than five minutes at a time. After 12 months, the automatic on/off sensor quit working, and after 15 months, something inside the motor came loose and hits the compartment for the CD/DVD shredder whenever it is on, causing a huge racket. My last shredder lasted eight years and cost about the same as what I paid for this one. I will not buy another Ativa shredder.

Worked great for 6 months and then started acting up. Now rarely works. Won't buy this brand ever again.

Good shredder for the price
Bought this 2 years ago and worked fine. Now the auto shut-off won't work. After shredding the paper we have to manually shut it off or risk of burning out the motor.

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
