I had this same product that lasted 5 years. When it was time to replace it, I looked at other styles but came back to this one. There are very few (if any) other styles that you can pull the basket out from the front versus the top. I could not use a shredder that you emptied by removing the top due to the cabinet that is above this shredder.

Best purchase ever Review by BIKER2

Purchased this many years ago for my home and business use. During that time others have used(abused) it, fed too many sheets sometimes jamming it, running it for extended periods (20 min and up) but with a little 3in one oil and me clearing the paper out she always keep going. Well they were finally able to strip the gears so now only can feed one sheet at a time if I am lucky. Time to replace it with the same style, and maybe fix this one if parts available as a back-up. With the tip out basket it is the easiest one I have found to empty.

Fellwos Shredder Review by gloria

This shredder is great. It cuts the paper nicely and fast. I really like the dispenser. I just step down on it and the basket is delivered in my hand. The black and silver color matches all my office, products. Also the see through waste basket, is always lite weight even when fill to the brim with shredded paper. I use my shredder everyday, I shred all daily new papers and all printed out throw away work and junk mail so my shredder gets it's workout and I haven't had a jam or any problems. The quiet operation could be just a little better, but I did not buy this shredder for sound so to me it's O.K. The price is just what I expected to pay, because when a shredder works as good as this one does price doesn't matter. Thanks for a great product and I am a very happy customer.

For the last 6 years I have been using the Fellowes PS-30, the most this shredder could be would be 2 or 3 small thin papers and the heaver would just jam. When taking out the shredded paper from the old PS-30 it was never safe and took up alot of room. But the new DS-1 can do charge cards and take any letter that we get in the mail and get rid of the paper and shredd it into pieces that can not ever be traced.
Plus the shredded material takes up less room then the Fellowes PS-30, I don't mind shredding now, The new DS-1 saves me time and room. I now can get rid of the papers that I need to get rid of for over the past 10 years, Thank you for making an affordable and good shredder.

Finally! Review by BeverlyAnn

Finally! A shredder that does everything it should and well. It is strong and sturdy. I don't have to baby it to make it work. It's not sensitive. It shreds everything neatly and cleanly. I don't have to spend time cleaning the cross-cut device every time I empty it. This is the third shredder I have purchased and it looks like it will be the last. Love it!

Second Time Around Review by havenone

Just bought my second Fellowes DS-1 Cross-Cut Shredder. The first finally gave up the ghost after six years of ocassionally heavy work. Did such a good job, I re-upped!

Absolutely LOVE!!! Review by sysp

This is my third shredder I've bought and is absolutely the BEST ever! I can't begin to say how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it's operation and the fact that it does not jam up like the other shredders I had. Only thing, you do have to empty it when it reaches the top and the only thing I don't like is the way the basket is designed. It's kind of hard to dump shreddng into a bag without spilling any of it. Still think it's a great shredder though!

Best Purchase Ever Review by Singdan

This is my second DS-1 shredder. I ruined the first one by accidentally inserting a paper with a nickel attached. I searched and searched for another just like it. Purchased a different model and returned it as I could not get the basket to stay locked in place after turning it on. Find this model very reliable for my usage

Fellowes Powershred DS-1 Paper Shredder Review

Fellowes is an esteemed brand when it comes to paper shredders. They produce some of the best paper shredders money can buy, even when they produce a lower-end machine. The Powershred DS-1 is one of the least expensive shredders Fellowes makes, but cheaper doesn’t mean lower quality when it comes to this machine. This review will fill you in on the strengths of the Fellowes Powershred DS-1 so you can find out if this little machine would be right for your office.

The DS-1 is a small, easy-to-use paper shredder that has a lot of special features and offers a high level of security, especially for the price. (It retails for just over $200.00.) This is a cross-cut paper shredder than can shred up to 11 sheets in one pass. (The shreds it produces measure 5/32 x 1 3/8″.) This machine can also shred credit cards and it has no problems dealing with staples and paper clips if you forget to remove them from your document before shredding. The DS-1 has a 9-inch throat so you can easily shred both letter-sized and legal-sized documents, and there’s a generously 4.75-gallon wastebasket that allows you to shred for a long time without having to empty the chamber. The wastebasket is mesh, which makes it easy to see when it’s full, and you can empty the basket easily because all you need to do is step down to release it. A magnetic safety interlock kicks in and shuts down the shredder when the basket is removed.

One of the best things about the DS-1 is that it’s equipped with Fellowes’ patented SafeSense technology. SafeSense is a premier safety feature that can sense when hands (or other body parts) are near the shredder’s opening. When it detects body heat, SafeSense automatically shuts the machine off to prevent an injury from occurring. This makes the shredder perfect for environments in which children and/or pets are present. Some of the DS-1’s other features include a reverse function to help you resolve paper jams and super quiet operation, which is always a nice feature to have in a shredder. Finally, the DS-1’s blades are covered by Fellowes’ five-year warranty and the machine has a contemporary, stylish look that’s a nice change of pace from all the industrial-looking shredders available.

The DS-1 was designed for moderate use in the home or office. That said, this isn’t a good machine to get if you need to continuously shred a lot of paper. The DS-1 can only shred approximately 220 sheets of paper per day and lacks a continuous-duty motor. (It’s recommended that you use it no more than 20 times per day.) There are also no casters on this machine so it can be a little difficult (and awkward) to transport it. But those are the machine’s only drawbacks. This is a solid unit with a lot to offer anyone who uses it.

The Fellowes Powershred DS-1 is an excellent choice for people who need a high-quality, affordable shredder that’s safe to use and also looks great. If you need a good, basic paper shredder, you can’t do much better than the DS-1. Buy one for your home or office today and start shredding!
