I gave a bad review which I wanted to edit, but Fellowes never posted it. My shredder stopped working a month after warranty and thought it was a defective power switch. It was not. So if your shredder stops working, look down into the slot - if you see paper - use a letter opener or something similar to remove or stir the paper around, now run in reverse to clear the jam. Now you will see a small piece of plastic in the center which was held down by the paper jam. In order for the shredder to turn on, the paper you put in has to push that little tiny piece of plastic in order to turn on the shredder. I hope I've helped someone, especially those people who did complain their shredder quit working.

I grew tired of buying the typical house brand shredders that would die after a year of use and sprung for a far more expensive W-11c. I had high hopes that this would be the shredder that lasts. When new, it would chew through junk mail, cd's, and credit cards without mercy. I oiled it religiously to make sure this would last. We went through about a bag a month of shredded material. While it does have a strong build, the shredder has a serious weakness. The input sensor is a piece of junk. Seriously. It quit working a few months after the 1 year warranty expired. I would hope that a manufacturer would use a popular internet search engine and see the large number of complaints of these shredders only working in reverse. I have tried the credit card gimmick as mentioned by the manufacturer. It didn't work. The only way to get it to work again would be to replace the switch or defeat it. Not cool folks. A more robust paper sensor design would be very easy to create... Another bit of advice to the engineers at Fellowes. Don't make a top heavy shredder with a narrow-base trash bin. Sure it looks cool to have a tapering trash bin, but it really is a stupid idea in the real world. The shredder will tip over if bumped. I'm sure you all learned "keep it simple stupid" while studying engineering. In fact, I'd be willing to give your future designs the common sense test for you for free if no one in the office gets it. That said, I really wanted to like this shredder. If it had lasted longer I would have had mostly positive things to say, except the balancing issue with the trash bin.

    Comments about Fellowes Powershred W11C Cross-Cut Paper Shredder:

    Been using this for about a month now, and it's impressive so far! It cuts up credit cards, goes through staples, and makes mincemeat out of paper! Other reviewers complained about not been able to see how full it was, but it's a non-issue for me. You can glance at the bin and there is an opening that you can see how full it's getting. It IS loud, but it's not like I'm using it at 3:00 am. And yes it is heavy when you lift the top off, but it's not THAT heavy. A handle would be a nice future addition.

            I love it. It's chopping up those papers and the safety lock is excellent. The only thing I would redesign is probably a better stand after you put the top on. Also a window so you can see how far are you before you get to the top.

                      We bought this shredder in Dec. 2016. We don't use it a lot. In the past year, we've only used it enough to empty the can once or twice. I went to use it a few weeks ago and it was dead. I've tried to make sure it's not jammed or anything but it won't do anything. We knew it wasn't the top of the line model but didn't think we needed that to shred statements and things alike once a month. And when it did work, I didn't feel that the cross-cut size was very small—I could still read my address or name on items. Since it didn't even work for a year, I definitely wouldn't recommend it.

                        The major concern i have is the ease the unit can fall over. With the very lite base and heavy shredder head it is easy to knock the unit over. if the base was as wide as the top or even a bit wider this would make the unit more stable.

The basket is also quite large so the shredded material doesn't need to be emptied often.

                                        No problems so far. Only thing I would change is to have handles at the side so when you want to move the machine (it is heavy with the shredder on top), it would be much easier than grabbing it around the basket. Seems like a machine that will tackle the jobs I have. No jams or issues at this point. It is not quiet. It is a little slow to shut off when done shredding but for home office it is a workable machine.

                                          I decided to purchase a shredder for home use after it cost me $32 to have a couple of boxes shredded at UPS. You can get one for around that price, but I decided to get a better quality shredder with a quality name. It has been great. No jams except when I feed it too much. It does cut credit cards with no problem.

                                                The shredder works great. I have had a great number of documents to shred and it fits my need perfectly. The price is right and is a fair value compared to the competition.

                                                  Well besides the fact that it couldn't handle 11 papers at one time like it said it could, I don't see any other problem with it. For example, if you receive a spam/scam letter that isn't particularly thick and you know it's trash, putting it in the shredder as it may cause it to jam or cause it to struggle a bit to shred it even though it's not 11 pages thick. Oh one more thing is the left over shredding underneath it. Sometimes little bits and pieces stick in it and won't come out.

                                                    Put this shredder to use as soon as I got home. I shredded a large storage box full of stuff over a 1 hour period of time. Almost constantly feeding a paper of single and multiple sheets; stopping only to get more paper out of the container. The shredder didn't miss a beat and shredded everything with ease. Right now I'm VERY PLEASED with this product and would highly recommend it for home use.

                                                        I bought shredder to replace my old brand X that wore out. This W11C has plenty of power and works as advertised. I like the design of the waste basket, you can put envelopes, etc. in without having to have another trash can near by. I also purchased the Fellowes oil.
