Rating Summary
  • Quality purchase for any large office

    We are a local police department with 40 employees. We have been using our shredder for a few weeks now and could not be happier. This shredder sells for significantly more money at our local office supply retailers. Digital Buyer was a great find!

    Thank you!

  • Nice Shredder
    Verified Buyer 29 October, 2018

    We recently purchased this shredder to replace an older Fellowes shredder that was giving us trouble (after being 10+ years old). was the cheapest route to go, even with paying the extra amount for delivery. My only complaint would be that I did not receive notification of shipment or the shipment tracking information until after I received the delivery. Other than that, the machine runs very smoothly and is pretty compact for it's capabilities.

    We are so impressed with our 485ci!! We should have done this years ago. We are experiencing a lot of saved time and more storage space in our archives as a result.

    Nice machine so far. Doesn't take up much space in the office and has a nice appearance. Quiet operation and nice small shreds for security. No problems so far.

    Love the shredder, just wish the level of noise was indicated in product description.

  • XLNT Shredder!
    Verified Buyer 10 July, 2014

    Replaced a very old, NOISY shredder with a Fellowes. Only issue seems to be slower shredding, but that could be due to fact Fellowes is a criss-cross and old machine did strips. Old machine sounded like a jet taking off. This is a great shredder!

  • Its a good shredder
    Verified Buyer 27 September, 2012

    Overall we are very happy with the shredder. Jams work their way out almost on their own and the smaller shred means MUCH less emptying of the bag. Our only concern is that one of the wheels already broke after only 1 month of use.
