Thinking of Buying the Olympia Multimedia CD & Disk Shredder? Here’s our Take

The Olympia Multimedia CD & Disk Shredder appears to be a solid machine with very
competitive specs relative to the competition. Used properly I’m not sure why you wouldn’t
have this machine for quite some time. Below we break down the individual specs.

Shredable Material
The Olympia Multimedia CD & Disk Shredder can shred CDs, Credit Cards, Paper. If you
need to be able to shred something else then we recommend that you look at a larger
machine and/or look for something with a little bit lower security (the higher the security
the less likelihood that the machine shreds something other than paper).

Continuous Motor
This shredder is rated for continuous operation. That means that theoretically you could
shred all day long and the machine would not have to shut-down to cool off. Remember
that results may vary under real-world operating conditions and things such as the
temperature of the room will affect the ability of this motor to stay cool and continue to
shred. We give this machine 2 pats on the back for being rated continuous duty and we
know that you’ll appreciate this feature in due time.

Bin Size
The Olympia Multimedia CD & Disk Shredder has a 20.2gallon bin. We’re happy with this
size because it will give you a bit more time between emptying your bin. Although the size
may make it difficult to fit this shredder in a tight space, it’s always worth it in the long
run to get a bigger bin size and move your office around a bit.

Throat Size
With a 4.85 inch throat this shredder gets the job done but doesn’t leave much room for
error. Your paper will fit in just fine but you’ll just need to make sure that it doesn’t bunch
up and cause problems. If you have odd sized paper, you may want to think about getting
something with a larger throat.

Auto Oiler
With an Optional Auto-Oiler available on this machine we highly recommend that you get
it pre-installed. The machine is pre-wired to accept an oiler so all the manufacturer has to
do is hook it up properly and you’ll never have to worry about messy oil again.
Automatically oiling your machine takes the guess-work out of maintenance and will most
likely increase the life of your machine.

The 3 years parts and labor - Lifetime on cutters on the Olympia Multimedia CD & Disk
Shredder is one of the best in the industry so rest assured that you are covered. Just
make sure that you oil your machine and avoid inserting any foreign object in the cutting
heads and you’ll be just fine!
With an MSRP of $5,620.00 this shredder is not the cheapest around but remember to
NEVER pay the full amount. You can find discounts of up to 50% off if you look around on
the web.

Manufacturer Jargon
Protect your privacy, protect your company; shred personal and corporate information
before it can cause you harm. Shred media data at the source. The Multimedia shredder
quickly destroys CD's, DVD's, disks, DAT tapes and Super disks. Solve the information
security before it becomes a threat. Shred media data right at the source. The Multimedia
shredder quickly destroys, CD's, DVD's, 3 1/2" floppy disks, 100MB and 250MB Zip disks,
4mm DAT tapes and LS 120 Super disks. Strong, fast and secure, the Multimedia destroys
volumes of data in the blink of an eye. Separate collection for different media allows easy
disposal and even recycling.

So as I mentioned before, we think that the Olympia Multimedia CD & Disk Shredder is a
worthy competitor and deserves a second look. If you have more specific questions I didn’t
answer here, feel free to give us a call and we’d be happy to help you out. I also wanted to
remind you that real-world conditions do not always produce the same results that you
might expect from the listed specs. Happy Shredding!
