very quiet

I haven't had the shredder very long but so far it has worked great. However, it doesn't shred credit cards into small pieces.

Strengths: Super quiet compare with other shedders, micro chips in size, shreds credit cards and CD at ease..

Weakness: Disc/Credit card shredding functions is not micro chip in size, security can be compromise. Strips is to large. No manual way to re-trigger and shred the Credit Credit/Disc a second time.

Overall, the Fellowes MS-450CS demostrates the ability to shred senstive documents in micro chip size and performs very quietly. Poor Credit Card/Disc shredder mechanism. Strip are to large. For home usage it's a great product and a perfect tool for personnal data security.

The MS-450Cs works efficiently

Strengths: Super quiet, super tiny micro chips, super efficient.

Weakness: Only comfortable with five sheets, which is actually more than I usually need to shred at one time.

The MS-450Cs has strong steel blades that quickly reduced paper and credit cards into pieces smaller than chopped-up sunflower seeds. When I ran it to demonstrate its quietness, my colleague stood waiting and finally asked when I was going to start. It surpasses its description. This medium-duty unit is a giant step up from my light-duty always-overheating strip shredder. I added a paper bag in...

Overall a nice machine

Strengths: - Very quiet compared to most shredders. - Stylish design. - Safety feature at cutting area entrance. - Blades also seem recessed a safe distance. - Has an On/Off switch that some shredders lack.

Weakness: - Seems to jam a little easier than my previous shredder with a similar sheet shredding rating. - Disc / Credit card shredder functions fine, but is useless for credit card security. Strips too big!

Overall a nice machine. It functions as advertised. I wish it had a little higher sheet capacity at this price, but with a small child in the house, I paid for the quiet feature and cutter safety feature (My old shredder scared my girl every time I ran it!). You can buy the larger capacity MS460 model, but that was physically larger than I wanted for my home office. The combo of the rather high...

Closest thing to total destruction

Strengths: Micro-shred lives up to it's name. figure on bits of paper half the length and 3x the width of a standard staple. Plus, it is surprisingly quiet - about the same sound level as my inkjet printer.

Weakness: There is definitely paper dust when emptying this thing. Feed rate is ok, but limited to about 8 sheets of paper. overheated after shredding about a ream of paper - restarted fine after 30 minutes.

Love it. Great purchase - easily fulfilled expectations and more. You have to see (and hear!) it in action to really appreciate it. Other reviewer raises durability question - I'm hoping for and expecting the best - I've had good experiences with other Fellowes shredders. I haven't tried the CD/credit card shredder section yet. Came with 4oz of shredder oil (very easy to oil and recommended every...
