How excited can one really get over a paper shredder? It truly is an honest question, but when an individual spends copious amounts of time in an office setting, at some point things are bound to go through the paper shredder.
This having been said, wouldn’t it make sense to find a shredder whose behavior is dictated by title but also affords its user a bit of enjoyment when carrying out monotonous tasks … like shredding paper?
In today’s posting, we will show our readers our new favorite paper shredder (Fellowes 32057 Powershred P-57Cs Shredder), what it can do and why those in both home and corporate office settings will want to see one of these wrapped up with a bow on it under their desk this holiday season.
First, let’s take a look at what it will shred (without starting on fire, blowing up or sending shrapnel throughout the office), shall we?
- Paper (Whew, we were worried about that one…)
- Credit Cards (Yes! Get rid of ’em!)
- Staples (Yes! No more Mr. Staple Remover!)
- Small Paper Clips (We usually save ’em, but hey, why not?)
Knowing these capabilities, let’s remind ourselves of what the unit *will not* shred, OK?
- Continuous Forms
- Adhesive Labels
- Large Paper Clips
- Misc. Plastic
Here are a couple other noteworthy specs:
- Paper Shred Size = Confetti-Cut 5/32″ x 2″
- Max. Sheets Per Pass = 8
- Max. Cards Per Pass = 1
- Continuous Operation = 5-7 minutes
As with many things in life and business, we here at AudioAcrobat are all about pushing boundaries. Here’s a quick video of Brian demonstrating the Fellowes 32057 Powershred P-57Cs Shredder shredding eight pieces of paper + one staple.
As a gentle reminder to our readers, paper shredders are not toys. They are machines with some serious blades that are designed to cut and chop objects into confetti. Not a good place to stick fingers. Here’s another short video of Brian demonstrating the patented SafeSense® Technology, which not only lights up with human contact but also stops shredding when touched near the Fellowes 32057 Powershred P-57Cs Shredder shredding zone.
Wait a minute, we haven’t even mentioned one of the most important factors when considering the purchase of a brand new paper shredder — the price. The Fellowes 32057 Powershred P-57Cs Shredder has a list price of $144.98 at Buy.com but is on sale for $58.95 with Free Shipping. The same product lists on Amazon.com (via Adorama Camera) at $59.99 and is available for $51.73 with standard shipping charges.
Regardless of the list price, paying around $60 for this light duty home/office paper shredder is an incredible deal … especially if our readers find themselves tempting fate by seeing how close they place their hands to moving blades.
