Excellent Shredder Review by M. Burke

The item arrived fast and works great. It is a little loud, but this shredder is far more powerful and safer that the Aptiva Brand that it replaced. Also, very safe. Chrome strip around the input senses touch and stops the shredder if touched, so you (and possibly the kids) will not be hurt. Handy input hole in front for recyclable items that do not need shredding.

Love this shredder! Review by Joanne

There's no flap at the top that you need to open before you can insert a sheet. You just aim and push! The shredder's sensibly quiet, not like some I've had, and its shape around the bottom takes up less room than other boxy shredders. Another great feature is the opening on the top that allows you to discard something that doesn't have to go through the shredder, like paper clips, rubber bands, or scraps of paper. A very nice shredder for home use!

Fits Under My Desk Review by Amanda

Needed a little shredder to put under my desk and shred junk mail and private docs. This does the trick. It is small enough that it doesn't get in the way and does a decent job on the shredding.

Fellows Powershredder Review by bloobird

I am especially impressed with the quiet operation of this shredder. The handle for picking up the shredder is a bonus and will be very helpful to me.

Great little Workhorse Review by OldSchoolDropout

After much online shopping and reading reviews I settled on this powerful and sturdy model. My old shredder had served a very long and useful life but was no longer functional. I was surprised to see the lack of shredder models for Home / Home Office use that didn't also have a trash receptacle, I find that quite useful and just don't want to take up the extra space. So far I have tried out up to 5-6 sheets of paper with staples and old Credit Cards with no problem whatsoever. Much more quiet than my last one for sure and great overall design. I line it with a kitchen trash bag for easy, dust free disposal.

Best Shedder Ever! Review by J944

This is the best shredder that I have ever used. It has lots of power and it shreds 10 sheets of paper without any problem. I also like the 5 gallon bin that comes with the shredder. You can shred a lot of paper without stopping to constantly empty the bin. The price was right too.

Powershred DS 3 Crosscut Review by Msinvestor

I received this shredder this am and am busy shredding papers. It is so quiet. Shreds well, .By far a better shredder than I had before. Sturdy constructions is a plus. Another plus is the safety feature that stops the shredder when touched as I hace 2 cats. Love the Fellows Crosscut.

So far, so good. Review by MandM

We have only had the shredder for 2 weeks. Therefore, to early to know how it is going to hold up. Definitely better quality then our old one, that would jam a lot. This one is much heavier then our old one. We were pleased with that. Doing a lot of shredding of old papers. Seems to handle the load pretty good. Being that it is a cross shredder - fills bin up real quick & pieces stay trapped in shredder when you go to dump it, which is messy. No matter how much I try, I get little pieces all over the floor. Working on coming up with a better system.

Fellowes DS-3 Shredder Review

Overview:

    Having a personal shredder is essential if you want to protect yourself against identity theft. One machine that can fit the bill is the Fellowes DS-3. Check out its strengths and weaknesses to see if it's right for you:

Features/ Strengths:

  • One of the best things about the DS-3 is that it's a cross-cut shredder with a Level 3 security rating. You'll be able to shred paper and credit cards so your private information won't fall into the wrong hands. It will definitely help you ward off identity theft.
  • This shredder can handle paper that's up to 9" wide. Ten sheets can be shredded at once which isn't too bad for a machine designed for personal use.
  • The DS-3 will start shredding automatically as soon as you place something in the feed opening, so it's pretty easy to use. When it's done shredding, it will stop running so you can save a little bit of power. Also, the motor is thermally protected so you can shred quite a bit and not worry about the machine overheating.
  • This device is outfitted with Fellowes' popular SafeSense feature. SafeSense is a technologically advanced safety system that causes the machine to stop running if your hands get too close to the feed opening. This feature helps make the DS-3 extremely safe to use.
  • The DS-3 has a 5-gallon waste bin so you won't need to empty it constantly. The bin has a transparent panel so you'll be able to see when it's getting full. When it's time to empty it, just lift up the top of the device and recycle your shreds.
  • You'll be able to store this shredder under a desk or table because it's not very big. Its dimensions are 16.5" (height) x 15" (width) x 12" (depth).
  • Finally, the DS-3's cutters are covered by a limited 3-year warranty. All of the other parts are backed by a limited 1-year warranty.

Limitations/Weaknesses:

  • The 10-sheet shredding capacity might not be workable if you routinely need to shred a lot of thick documents. Also, this machine can't shred multimedia items such as CD's and floppy disks.
  • The DS-3 only has one waste bin and one feed basket. As a result, your plastic and paper shreds are going to be mixed. To make recycling a bit easier, you should shred the two materials separately.
  • This machine is obviously not meant for heavy-duty shredding in larger offices. However, there are many shredders available for larger workplaces.

Recommendation:

    If you're looking for a shredder for home use, the Fellowes DS-3 is definitely one you should consider. This is really one of the best shredders meant for personal use and it has all the features that Fellowes machines are famous for, such as the great warranty coverage and the inclusion of SafeSense technology. The DS-3 will give you the security you need and it's also small enough to fit just about anywhere. It's not the best choice for large offices but for individual use, it's ideal. Check out this shredder today.
