First of all, this shredder works great, but what I like most is that the waste basket works well in reducing the mess. The previous 2 models I had, when you pulled the wastebasket out, you couldn't prevent the shredded paper from getting all over the place and you would have to vacuum. There is very little mess with this model.

Our previous shredder was a Fellowes and was a real workhorse. Had high hopes for the 63Cb. Out of the box the SafeSense on our unit did not work. You could put your fingers all over the metal opening while running and it would never stop. Tech support was very good about sending out a new unit, got it within a few days. Second unit does same thing. Tried all fingers in the house, nothing could stop it. That aside, the paper has to be slid down very far before it gets pulled in, so trying to shred one sheet doesn't work well because the paper is to flimsy to easily get past the "trigger" and down far enough to get sucked in. If you are trying to shred one receipt forget it. It will be a crumpled mess but definitely not shredded unless you feed it in with a stack of paper. Jam indicator comes on quite easily. However haven't used the unit for long enough to see if it works well or not. Now we have one unit to send back to the factory and another unit to take back to the store.

    Cheapley made, had to put felt pads under unit, so it would not scratch the floor. Motor/shred sits on a flimsy cabinet. Unit is quit.

    Comments about Fellowes Powershred 63Cb Cross-Cut Shredder:

    I purchased this shredder but upon receiving it found the top part is extremely heavy and difficult to put on. it is very hard to line up and it keeps sliding back off the front track. in order to keep the top in place after you have to struggle with it to get it where it should be you need to put a ruler across the back to keep it steady so it won't slide out of place. I don't recommend. i'm elderly and i'm unable to even lift the top part so it is of no use to me.

            I purchase the Powershred 63Cb after a new shredder that I had just purchased overheated after a few minutes and the motor burnt out. The 63Cb has a feature that cuts out and switches off the motor BEFORE it burns out. This vital feature added to the solidness and good looks of the 63Cb make this my favourite shredder ever.

                I purchased this Powershredder as a replacement for an 8 yr old Fellowes shredder that quit working. I trust the quality of the Fellowes brand. This Powershred 63Cb is even quieter than my earlier one. Compared to other brands, products made by Fellowes are sturdier and clearly are better built. I want "value for my money". There is no question, but that a Fellowes product meets this goal.

                    My wife had accumulated a mountain of bills,credit card statements,and other sensitive information. My current shredder was not up to the task;it died in the process. What to do? What do do?After perusing my options on line I selected the Fellowes Powershred 63CB. It worked its way through the pile of paper like a piranha on a cow. Quickly,efficiently,with unforgiving teeth. Very happy.

                        The online registration form (and contest) says applicable to North America; ie. Canada included. It does not allow for entry of a Canadian address, because it requires that a "State" be entered, but does not list provinces for Canada so the form cannot be completed. My address is in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Since I had to select a "State" to proceed, I selected Alaska. Please correct the form to include a blank space for alternates to "State" to be entered. I have just set up the shredder and will begin to use it. Big expectations !

                            I thought I was purchasing a brand new item, but when I received my shredder, I took a very close look at the insides. I found some shredded paper and thought right away, "Did they sell me a refurbished item?" Sure looks like it and makes me wonder.

                              New year's goal was to get my mail and paper work in some kind of order. I saw your shredder advertised in the target flyer.I decided that's what I needed and sure enough it had been the best little worker. No more worries about my name getting in the recycling junk mail.I just put it through powershred63CB and it turns it into pet bedding.I especially like the cool down feature.I have had no problems and have all ready reached my goal for this year thanks to Fellowes powershred63CB. I give this product 5 stars hands down.

                              Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
                              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.
                              What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?

                              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.
