you must have got a bad one.3

I bought an el-cheapo from Wal-Mart ($30) and that piece of crap still shredds today. I must have shredded 5-6 thousand pages so far and it still eats it up. i'm one of those people who refuses to throw anything away that has my name or address on it without shredding it first.

I'm at work so i'm unable to tell you what brand it is.

i think that's a fantastic choice. just send in that warranty info and commence shredding!

to: GSM CEO - take it easy man, this guy's just asking a simple question. No harm in that. (not trying to be offensive, just my opinion. )
