I gave a bad review which I wanted to edit, but Fellowes never posted it. My shredder stopped working a month after warranty and thought it was a defective power switch. It was not. So if your shredder stops working, look down into the slot - if you see paper - use a letter opener or something similar to remove or stir the paper around, now run in reverse to clear the jam. Now you will see a small piece of plastic in the center which was held down by the paper jam. In order for the shredder to turn on, the paper you put in has to push that little tiny piece of plastic in order to turn on the shredder. I hope I've helped someone, especially those people who did complain their shredder quit working.

I grew tired of buying the typical house brand shredders that would die after a year of use and sprung for a far more expensive W-11c. I had high hopes that this would be the shredder that lasts. When new, it would chew through junk mail, cd's, and credit cards without mercy. I oiled it religiously to make sure this would last. We went through about a bag a month of shredded material. While it does have a strong build, the shredder has a serious weakness. The input sensor is a piece of junk. Seriously. It quit working a few months after the 1 year warranty expired. I would hope that a manufacturer would use a popular internet search engine and see the large number of complaints of these shredders only working in reverse. I have tried the credit card gimmick as mentioned by the manufacturer. It didn't work. The only way to get it to work again would be to replace the switch or defeat it. Not cool folks. A more robust paper sensor design would be very easy to create... Another bit of advice to the engineers at Fellowes. Don't make a top heavy shredder with a narrow-base trash bin. Sure it looks cool to have a tapering trash bin, but it really is a stupid idea in the real world. The shredder will tip over if bumped. I'm sure you all learned "keep it simple stupid" while studying engineering. In fact, I'd be willing to give your future designs the common sense test for you for free if no one in the office gets it. That said, I really wanted to like this shredder. If it had lasted longer I would have had mostly positive things to say, except the balancing issue with the trash bin.

                I had a Fellowes Straight Shredderm that was at least 20 years old and loved it. However, with having to tighten up, with security these days, I wanted a cross cut. My new shredder is GREAT and more efficient than I expected. I would highly recommend this product to anyone!

                  Shredder motor is heavy duty but loud during operation. Base container is a little flimsy as compared to my last Fellowes shredder. It was fun reading thru all the reviews online. Most seemed like "canned reviews".

                      This little tiny shredder has been amazing me since I got it. I kept my bucket from my previous shredder and kept on throwing things i had to shred. Well today is cold and rainy and a good time to use my new Fellows shredder. I was done shredding in less time than I thought. Your Fellows shredder really does what it says it will do. I was so afraid of a jam, but nope not this shredder. Thank you for keeping your word in your advertisement, it is just great. Thanks Audrey. P.S. Anyone looking for a perfect gift idea, for graduation? This is it.

                          Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                          Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                          Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.

                          Material Liquid ink Dry powder
                          How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
                          Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
                          Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                          Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                          Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
