I use this shredder for personal use so I can't comment on it's ability to shred large amounts of material. However, I have twin 13-month old babies at home and since my home office is in the next room, I always worried that the noise from my previous shredder would disturb them.
I bought the MicroShred because of its claim of quietness and I have to say that my expectations were exceeded. The MicroShred is quieter than my inkjet printer and the pieces that it cuts the paper into are miniscule. The pull-out basket is convenient, an improvement from the older model where you had to lift off the cutting head and put it somewhere while you empty the backet. The casters on the bottom are also convenient since the unit is somewhat heavier than you might expect.

My husband wanted me to get a shredder because my junk mail stack kept stacking up. I normally use scissors to cut my personal information up into unrecognizable pieces. I like to get the most for my money, so spending over $100 meant the product better be worth it.

Pros:
I am very pleased with how small of pieces the shredder cuts.
The bin is easy to empty out (scraps will get caught in the lip so you have to tap it before standing it back up)
Even though it doesn't fit on a desk top, it doesn't take up that much room on the floor.

Cons:
Credit cards end up in strips, so I don't shred my credit cards with this machine.
** most annoying part **
OVERHEATS TOO OFTEN
The sensor on the machine works great, but you have to keep letting it cool down.

Comments about Fellowes MicroShred Shredder:

I use this for daily personal shredding. It is surprisingly quiet. I replaced an older Fellowes strip shredder to get the microcut feature and the ability to shred CDs and DVDs. I am very pleased with this shredder. I have only a few minor gripes: 1) the input slot could be a little wider to make it easier to insert paper, 2) it would be more convenient if the on-off switch were on the top cover instead of on the side, and 3) small pieces of paper (e.g. credit card receipts) are not automatically detected in the input slot -- you have to put the paper in the slot and then push the Forward button manually to turn on the shredder. These are very minor issues. This is a great shredder.

    Comments about Fellowes MicroShred Shredder:

    Haven't used the shredder much to date but when I have used it it performed as advertised and was extremely quiet. I don't anticipate any problem (i.e., mess) when emptying the bin because I am using a bag inside the bin.

      Comments about Fellowes MicroShred Shredder:

      I read many reviews about this microshredder before I purchased. It is indeed quiet, powerful, easy to operate, and produces small confetti-like shreds (not "dust") that are great in a compost heap. The microshredder came with plastic bags to put in the bin. Credit cards are shredded into strips and there's a small internal bin for the credit card/cd refuse. That bin can be removed permanently if you want to use the entire larger bin for paper only. I've not had any problem with overheating. However, I have used the microshredder only sporadically for document shredding and have not taxed it beyond five sheets at a time. My only wish is that the paper opening on the unit was a bit wider than nine inches. ABT Electronics had the lowest price for this microshredder at the time of my purchase. [...]I'm happy with this product and seller.

      There were no surprises with this product. After reading all the reviews, we still went with this shredder. It is messy, but what do you expect with micro-cut paper. For our needs, this shredder works fine.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The shredder was delivered in a timely manner. It was so well packed, it would have been an effort to have damaged it.

      i have used it a few times - each time shredding till the bin is full - then i would oil it and leave it till the next shredding session - i think it works great - the only downside i can see so far is its very messy when you have to empty the bin - it shreds so small that it goes all over the place in the bin - when you empty it - it will get messy in and around the bin on the floor etc. - other than that - its great so far -

        Apparently well made, very quiet, if there's a jam it auto reverses to clear itself. I generally shred junk mail in envelope without opening.

        It maxes out a 7 sheets per feed. Great for home or small offices, but not for high volume shredding.

        Comments about Fellowes MicroShred Shredder:

        Good and quiet. It really micro-shreds nearly close to dust. So, it will get very dusty. So keep this in the garage. CD and Credit Card shreds in large size pieces as a normal shredder. Great for confidential docs. Would not use for everyday shredding.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivered on time and great price. I would buy again from ABT. Look out Amazon!
