Pros: Proper crosscut, Quieter than my last shredder, Compact size
Cons: CD shredding is sub-par, Short constant run time, Small gap at the top that drops shreddings when the bin is full, Very thin opening makes it hard to shred receipts
For the price, this is a pretty good shredder and as long as it lasts me a few years I'll be happy.
I was very pleased with the quieter motor in this compared to my previous shredder and the crosscut design leaves and documents well destroyed.
That being said, it can be quite hard to get thinner paper, like receipts into the thing opening for this shredder. I'm sure it's like that for safety reasons but it can be a little trouble some at times.
The cool down timer on this thing kicks in pretty quickly so don't plan on shredding tons of stuff back to back. That being said, it get's through a normal days documents without any issue.
While the CD shredding feature wasn't really something I needed, I thought it was an interesting idea when I bought this. Sadly, it just cuts the CD into 3 large pieces so it's not much better than just breaking the disc yourself. Not really a secure way to destroy a CD and the gaps between the blades are too far apart to be used on credit cards (though, those shred fine in the normal end and are securely destroyed there.)
Worked great, at first.

Pros: Destroys the paper.
Cons: Doesn't last long for shredding.
Shredded things here and there but, it ultimately stop working after days of struggling. No sounds what so ever.

Works as stated! Probably not good for high volume shredding. It is just what I needed.

Pros: Shreds paper.
Cons: Confuses my dogs.
Needed a shredder for my home and couldn't pass this up at the price point. Tested with 8 sheets right out the box and it went through fine. I've had it for about a month now and haven't had any problems so far.

Pros: Its compact size.
Cons: Stopped working after few uses.
I've been buying all sorts of stuff from Monoprice for years now and I've never been disappointed.
This shredder however worked as advertised for a short while but stopped feeding paper after the occasional use in a home environment.
It is now in my garage waiting to be sent to the recycling depot.
Not worth the money if it doesn't work.
