I’ve owned and operated this paper shredder for a few months before doing this review. Not once has it jammed or have I encountered any problems at all. In fact, it shredded stacks of paper and greatly exceeded its advertised run time capacity.

I give this paper shredder a thumbs up, but do acknowledge that it is a little louder (70 db) than other units I’ve owned/operated in the past. However, this is a non-issue for me as it gets the job done without any problems. I would definitely recommend the Amazon Basics 12-sheet paper shredder to anyone that desires a security product to destroy unwanted personal/confidential documents that allows for them to be disposed of safely. Whether at home or at work, properly discarding paperwork, files and other documents that contain personally identifiable information is a proactive measure we all can take to help prevent identity theft.

Would have like to seen how it handles 10 sheets or more. One piece of paper is easy with the cheapest shredders.

5 minutes and you shred 1 piece of paper?

I’m interested in this shredder if it can handle cardboard. Right now I am using a 6-sheet basic shredder and it only cuts up small pieces of cardboard.
