I bought this shredder because of the name and I needed one. Just personal use. It worked great and NEVER did I challenge the 8 sheet at a time capacity.
I had accumulated a couple of months worth of bills and such, sat down and turned on the machine and had no power. I checked everything including the outlet which had power, the shredder was dead.
I had kept it clean and never even let the paper build up to the point of shutting the machine down, used shredder oil, etc.
Very disappointed in Black and Decker. They should not have put their name on this thing.

Excellent paper shredder. I haven't had any jams or any problems with this paper shredder. I have had 3 other types of paper shredders and the Black & Decker is by far the BEST. You turn on the shredder , put your 8 sheets of paper in the slot and your paper is immediately shredded and no jams. The cover can be used as a holder for your sheets of paper while they are being shredded. When done shredding, you turn the shredder off and close the lid. Also under the cover, there is an indicator light to tell you your shredder is full. Excellent shredder.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HudsonValleyG Good at what it does, no issues
Got this to get rid of many years of files and paperwork. So far we have put many sheets through it with no problems. It does bog down with over 6 or so sheets, or when they go in crooked. However, that is normal with other shredders I have used at work over the years. I got this one because I wanted a cross cut shredder, and not just one that tears into strips. While it is not confetti sized pieces, they are small enough to render them pretty useless.

I was looking for a shredder and I happen to see his one. I compare different one and decide to get this one, so I brought this shredder for my birthday and I'm glad that I did. the delivery was good it came with in a week. You have a choice when you shred to keep it running or automatic in which you have less noise. I like it so much I brought my daughter one for Christmas. In which, she also enjoyed. Before I forget the price was excellent.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dcshopper Poor shredder
I decided to order this shredder after reading all of the positive reviews, but my experience was the complete opposite. Perhaps I received a defective printer but within 5 minutes of shredding, I began to smell a slight burning scent and then it jammed. It advertises as being an 8 sheet shredder, however I did not insert more than 4 sheets at a time and it quickly jammed. This shredder is going back.

I love this shredder. Although I only use it to shred sensitive info from bills, and other docs., it's great to be able to just put 5-8 pieces of paper in at the same time and have this thing eat them. I also shredded a credit card the other day, and this shredder had no problem digesting it.

This product is so easy and safe to use. I like the on off switch location in the back and the shield that snaps shut.
This crosscut shredder provides me with personal security
knowing that my personal information cannot be retrieved from the cuttings.

At first I thought it was going to over heat because of the smell but it didn't. I only shredded for about 2 minutes the first time before it shut down but after that, it worked great. It went through staples and unopened mail. I would highly recommend this product.
