Recently purchased the 225CI for the cross-cut feature as the one previously in use was a straight cut. As recently obtained this shredder it has to date been operating well - no issues. A nice surprise, the 225Ci came with a bottle of oil as the 225i we were using did not. I am disappointed in the shred bin that was supplied with this 225Ci shredder - a heavy-thick cardboard carton for the bin. This was disappointing as the 225i we were using had a heavier corrugated type bin that is much sturdier/construction than this heavy-thick cardboard. Makes you wonder exactly how long this will last with the on-going emptied of the shred bin. How soon we will be seeking a shred bin replacement. The other disappointment, the 225i had a "separate" bin for the shredded CD's. The 225Ci does not. Any shredded CD's are now mixed in with the shredded paper. With the price paid, would think there would be a better constructed shred bin and would include the CD shred bin. Other than these two concerns, the shredder works as expected. Recommend? Yes, would purchase another, and would recommend to others.

Purchased the Powershred 225Ci, and it has been a nightmare since two weeks from purchase date. It is a beautifully designed unit that takes less office space than the dinosaur unit it replaced. In my opinion, the dinosaur unit with no bells and whistles was a far better unit. This unit is on its 4th repair. It does jam on occasion, but that is the least of its problems. The sensory system is faulty. Instead of auto-stop when job is completed, it runs continuously until the user turns it off. It has become such a nuisance to operate because for it to work you have to press the right arrow before putting the paper in and while it is shredding. Now, with this repair, we have come to find out that there is a piece broken under its hood. I wonder how that happened. As for the safety feature, of course this is great...the darn thing stops working and lights up like a Christmas tree when you insert paper. In my opinion, this is not a professional, high-capacity shredder, and like a new car...it should be bound by the "Lemon Law".

    Comments about Fellowes Powershred 225Ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder:

    The shredder was working good for 11mnths and then started acting up. It can't take high volume as advertised. I called up customer service and was told to clean the scensors and that didn't work. Full bin light stays on when there's nothing in the basket. I called back for a service call and they couldn't tell me who would be calling me and that it would take 1-3 business days for just a phone call. Really bad customer service. We need this shredder ASAP, our shredding is piling up quickly. :(

                    Bought this shredder for our office to replace an older one. We selected this model based on the caster wheels, waste capacity, shred capacity and the continuous shredding capability. Have had no issues with this since we bought it. Very quiet and easy to operate. Also liked the fact it will shred credit cards, staples, paper clips and CD's/DVD's.

                      The first shredder that arrived wouldn't work unless the door was shut really hard. With a phone call to the manufacturer, we learned that it had a bad circuit board. Customer Service was great, the were able to send us a replacement within about 10 days. That one has worked fine so far. It is nice and quiet and does a good job. Our one complaint is that the basket for the shredded documents appears to be made of heavy cardboard. This was a surprise because the shredder was quite expensive and should have been made of heavier duty materials.

                          This is our second Fellowes Powershred product for the office, the first one was a strip cut and very small. After many years of use well worth the money spent we needed to get a new one and decided to upgrade. Love the cross cut feature and the indicators of too many sheets of paper. Hopefully this will prevent jams in the future. Very compact for the work the shredder does and it is very quiet compared to the old one. Nice that it came with a few bags so we could start using it right away, as well as the oil and a good user guide. My only concern is for the cardboard box for the paper, hopefully it will last a long time or we can get a replacement should it get damaged. Looking forward to hopefully many years of usage.

                                          Our office is very happy with our new shredder. It is compact and very quiet. Have already recommended it to another office in the district.

                                              This new shredder replaced an older, now discontinued Fellowes product. It is larger, handles more paper and is very quiet. Overall, a very good choice.

                                                Purchased the Powershred 225Ci, and it has been a nightmare since two weeks from purchase date. It is a beautifully designed unit that takes less office space than the dinosaur unit it replaced. In my opinion, the dinosaur unit with no bells and whistles was a far better unit. This unit is on its 4th repair. It does jam on occasion, but that is the least of its problems. The sensory system is faulty. Instead of auto-stop when job is completed, it runs continuously until the user turns it off. It has become such a nuisance to operate because for it to work you have to press the right arrow before putting the paper in and while it is shredding. Now, with this repair, we have come to find out that there is a piece broken under its hood. I wonder how that happened. As for the safety feature, of course this is great...the darn thing stops working and lights up like a Christmas tree when you insert paper. In my opinion, this is not a professional, high-capacity shredder, and like a new car...it should be bound by the "Lemon Law".

                                                        We are experiencing a great relief after our purchase of the C-225Ci Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder. We are a hospital with 33 beds and have needs of a more efficient, higher capacity, and reliable shredder and Fellowes came through once again. We have purchased shredders from Fellowes before, but they were not the commercial end that we were needing and we were burning out the motors of the others because of the excess usage of our nursing staff. Patient confidentiality is of the utmost importance, so we must protect our patient's information and this is where Fellowes comes to our rescue. With previous purchases we have always been satisfied and hope to continue our relationship long into the future. Thank you.

                                                          Our company purchased two C-225ci shredders and in just a few weeks we had sensor malfunctions on both machines. Both were repaired by authorized repair centers. One is working ok while the other one continues to have sensor issues. Too many bells and whistles. The older model C220 machine we have is working fine after several years of service.

                                                            I have owned my fair share of shredders and usually they last about a year. This unit is constructed well and is somewhat quieter than what I am use to. I bought it because of other favorable reviews. So far so good. It has taken everything I put in it. I have many old files that I plan shred as opposed to using an outside company.

                                                                    I bought this shedder because of its long cycle time. I have used it for over a month and it performs exceptionally well.
