What reviewers liked

Overall, it’s a solid, rough, and tough product to buy. It shreds up to 16-sheets in a single run and also shreds debit/credit cards, staples, and paper clips. It automatically detects all the tough situations and clears it within no time.
This shredder comes in several different sizes and includes privacy features. The LX series is 100% jam-proof and shreds paper into "micro-cut" pieces, which are three times smaller than normal cross-cut pieces.

What reviewers didn't like

Some may find it too bulky and heavy. Only shreds for 10 minutes at a time.
