A Startling Surprise Review by AuntZee

I’m a collector, an octogenarian, so have for many years saved cards, letters and poetry from my husband, mother, children and friends; love letters from old boyfriends; receipts, and records of work and business, all too personal to throw in the curbside trash.
Did I want my children to encounter this mountain of paper clutter? NO! So I bought three shredders one-by-one. By file fifteen, or less in one case, they clattered, stopped, had to be begged to take one sheet at a time. Finally growing discouraged I started looking at other people’s opinions of better shredders; perusing reviews by those who’d tested several shredders and discovered the Fellowes PS-79Ci had a good reputation. I bought one, however I was dubious of its staying power. I am having a grand surprise.
To empty the previous shredders I had to lift off the tops which were awkward and heavy. And they all filled much too quickly. My Fellowes container is large enough to hold one stuffed file which works for me, the weight being just right to manage as I slide out the basket and dump the pieces into a garbage bag.
Too often the other shredders were hot, quit working, always before I could get the contents of one file folder through them. This shredder gets hot after about three stuffed files. That’s just right, too, for I’m tired of sitting by then, ready to walk around for awhile, smell my roses and admire the moss rose … or start lunch, drink a cup of coffee, relax.
Forty-six large black garbage bags of shredded paper later, I am thankful to all of the people who suggested I buy one. I estimate I have forty-six more bags at least to go, but now have the faith … my Fellowes is up to the job. And happily, in a final win-win, a nephew is plowing under the shredded material as mulch for his next year’s garden so my lifelong collection of memories will live on. I visualize them now … as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers.

Shred, Shred, Shred Review by AdmnAsst2011

I purchased 2 of these; one for our library branch and one for another of our branches. The main reason for purchasing this particular model was the decibel level. Being that we are public libraries we need them to be as quiet as possible. My expectations were exceeded. The noise level is very minimal and hasn't jammed.

Grind it up! Review by audioczar

Great machine for the price. I shred lots of DVD's and junk mail raw. So far this does very well. It jammed once, pushed it back up automatically and then re processed by itself. It's quiet. I like that!

The Wheels Review by Ladell

Great purchase, the only issue I have is the hard time I had putting on the wheels and keeping them in the socket. The directions are not clear on how to put the wheels on, I had to remove a metal piece with a staple remover. (at work)

I bought this shredder to replace one that was a piece of junk. After five or so years of use, it would jam continually. The 79Ci is nicely build, it can easily shred more than 15 sheets of paper; it can deal with staples or paper clips and it's nice and quiet. I bought it when I saw that our department office had one also and they were really happy with it too.

Rugged and quiet Review by cincipapa24

I've only had this shredder a short time, but I am already impressed with the rugged and quiet design. This shredder had good reviews and when I compared its weight to that of other units I was considering, I thought it must be more rugged as it was twice the weight of many other units. When it arrived and I compared the cutter head to my old shredder, it was obvious that those additional pounds went into value added materials such as a heavier duty motor and much more robust cutters. My old shredder used to always sound like it was laboring, even to shred 2 or 3 sheets and was very loud. This unit is very quiet and sounds like it is not straining at all, even when cutting many sheets simultaneously. I'm extremely happy I chose this shredder.

Replaces a ten year old Xerox Cross-Cut Shredder. It is remarkably quiet compared to the old one and so far has not hesitated to shred what I've put in. The jam proof feature actually refuses to begin the shredding process if you give more than the designed amount of paper. This limit is based on thickness of the stack so it really depends on the "weight" of the paper and not the number of sheets. If it last as long as the old one, then it's really quite a bargain.

Quiet & Fast shredder Review by Tiedofshreddersdying

Only been using this for a few weeks at home but I like it much better than any other shredder I've had. Getting the casters on it during assembly was tricky, they should have better instructions for that. After the 1st time emptying, getting the bin back in place just right to where it will allow you to shred took a little effort too. Like that it came with oil to help maintain, I have read that lack of oil is the death of a lot of shredders.

This machine is capable of shredding paper, cards, credit cards, CDs, DVDs, staples, and paperclips. Plastic guide and guard flips down on the front for easy credit card and CD shredding. The 79ci is safe and quiet. SafeSense technology allows for the machine to stop the moment a hand is near the opening and restart when the hand is away. A light gauge on the right-hand side will let you know if your paper stack is too thick. If it is, you can simply hit the reverse button to back it back out and place it back in in smaller batches. The waste basket is accessed from the front and has a six-gallon capacity. The cross cut shred is great for sensitive documents and has a level three security. It's great stationary and comes with four casters if you want to roll it around. That is the Fellowes PowerShred 79ci. For more demos, reviews, and how-tos, check out MyBinding.com.

Fellowes IntelliShred PS-79Ci Personal Paper Shredder Review

Fellowes is one of the go-to names when it comes to paper shredders, including ones designed for personal use. Their new IntelliShred PS-79Ci is a very advanced shredder and one you should definitely consider if you’re in need of a way to destroy your documents. Here are the pros and cons of this product.

Pros:

  • The PS-79Ci can handle up to 12 sheets of paper per pass. There’s a 9-inch feed opening for both letter- and legal-sized documents. This product can also be used to shred credit cards and CD’s, as well as paper clips and staples that have been left in your documents.
  • Although this is a personal-sized shredder, it offers good security because it’s a cross-cut device. It will turn a sheet of paper into many, many pieces that measure 5/32″ x 1-1/2″.
  • This machine has a waste bin capacity of 6 gallons. The bin can be pulled out and emptied with no problem. A window on the front of the bin allows you to see how many shreds there are in it.
  • One of the best features of this machine is its ability to prevent paper jams. It has a sheet capacity indicator that will alert you if you’re trying to shred too much at once. (If the indicator is inching up towards red, be sure to remove some sheets.) Also, if you do end up with a misfeed, the PS-79Ci is powerful enough to claw its way through the paper so you don’t have to solve the problem yourself. There is also a reverse function you can use.
  • This device also has two of Fellowes’ most popular features: SafeSense and SilentShred. The latter is the machine’s ability to detect body parts near the feed opening. When that happens, the machine will shut off so an injury can be avoided. As for SilentShred, this feature ensures that the device will operate quietly. This is a good feature to have in a shredder, especially if you work closely with other people.
  • For added convenience, this product has casters to make transport easier. There are also hooks on the back of the device to wrap the power cord around when the shredder isn’t being used.
  • As is typical with Fellowes products, the PS-79Ci is covered by two great warranties. The first is a 2-year warranty on products and services. Plus there’s lifetime protection for the machine’s cutting head.

Cons:

  • The PS-79Ci lacks a continuous-duty motor. It can shred for up to 12 minutes before needing a rather lengthy cooling off time of 20 minutes. Therefore, this device is good for personal use, but it wouldn’t be too useful if it was used by multiple people.
  • All of the waste is mixed. There isn’t a separate bin for credit card or CD scraps.
  • This is a very advanced personal-sized shredder and all that technology comes at a price. This is one of more expensive shredders on the market, so it might not be a good choice for individuals on a budget.

The Fellowes IntelliShred PS-79Ci is one of the best personal shredders you can buy. Although it has a long cooling off time and it lacks a bin for plastic waste, this is definitely the machine to get if you’re an individual looking to protect yourself from fraud and identity theft, and you can afford such a device.
