Overall the machine is quite nice but I’ll let you be the judge after you see the pros and cons below. Always remember that the stated specs of a machine do not always translate precisely to a real-world environment. Security This shredder sports a level 4 security which means that no one is going to be able to read your documents. A level 3 in generally sufficient for most environments but the level 4 provides that extra level of security. An added bonus with this machine is that because the shreds are smaller, they take up less space so you’ll be able to shred more paper before you have to dump out the bin. This will save you time and money (when it comes to bags). Shredable Material The GoECOlife GMW100P 10-Sheet Micro-Cut Green Personal Shredder can shred CDs, Credit Cards, DVDs, 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 At 5 gallons, the GoECOlife GMW100P 10-Sheet Micro-Cut Green Personal Shredder is a personal/deskside machine. You won’t be able to shred too much before you have to empty it, but presumably you won’t be shredding that frequently. If you will, we recommend that you jump up to something with a bigger bin size. Throat Size With a 8.78 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 This machine does not come with an auto-oiler and does not have the option to have one installed. Although automatic oilers are not necessary to maintain your machine, they do take the guess-work out of maintenance. Don’t hold it against the machine though as you can easily oil the machine yourself on regular intervals. Warranty The GoECOlife GMW100P 10-Sheet Micro-Cut Green Personal Shredder comes with a One year limited warranty, with 2 years on cutters. This means that you have plenty of time to test out the machine and make sure that everything is running smoothly. Just make sure to properly care for your machine and you shouldn’t have any issues. Price With an MSRP of $249.99 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.
