1) It is quieter than I expected
2) I was able to feed 6-8 pages at a time with no problems (I didn’t actually try to handle more)
3) It easily handled heavy weight paper (and it even handled a few credit cards)
4) It seems to be quite a bit faster than my previous shredder
5) It isn’t prone to jamming (no problems with standard staples, slick papers, etc.)
6) I used it for more than 6 hours straight before it shut down (for about 5-6 minutes) due to overheating
1) The input slot for the shredder should be redesigned to make it easier to feed the papers
2) It’s a bit more expensive than the competitive models
3) Capability may be overstated because I’m not certain that it would routinely handle 18 sheets of paper
4) Container fills up pretty quickly
5) Some shredded bits always seem to end up on the floor when emptying the container.
CONCLUSION: Best home shredder I’ve used so far. I’d give it a rating of 4.5, if Amazon had the ability to do that.
However, in reading the fine print of the instructions, they say âto maintain a durable and faultless work of the shredder, it is advised to place no more than 70% of the maximum amount of sheets to be shred at one time. The maximum amount of sheets should be used only occasionallyâ
Well, I did not buy it to shred 18 sheets âoccasionallyâ, I bought it to shred 18 sheets most of the time !!
so, is this an 18 sheet shredder? NO, it is a 12.6 sheet or 13 sheet shredder
I have now been using this shredder for several months. It has concistently worked quietlty and shredded up to 20 sheets of paper at a time.
I originally rated it one star because of the above. However, it has been so excellent,.I must now change this to 4 stars.

I’ve replaced a Fellowes DS-3 shredder, which is a similar size. The DS-3 broke when one of the plastic gears in the drive train shed a gear — a tiny piece of plastic snaps and the whole thing goes in the trash. I hate that. But seizing an opportunity to get a better shredder, I researched quite a bit and selected this Bonsaii. The features I liked in the listing were its 14 sheet capacity (the DS-3 claimed 10 sheets, but no way) and its quieter operation. My wife really hated the sound of the DS-3, so that appealed.
It arrived fast, I plugged it in. Bright red LED, I’m going to have that on all the time? May have to put some electrical tape over it. I put my first sheet in to test it. It’s indeed quieter than the DS-3. But…slower. Hmm. Maybe only two thirds as fast pulling the paper through the drivetrain. Perhaps my throughput will be the same because I can put more sheets at a time through it? I was skeptical.
Well today I gave it its first big run. This little guy seems unstoppable. Yes, it feeds in a slow and stately manner, but it doesn’t slow down when you feed it more than a few sheets (the Fellowes was always straining), it just maintains its constant speed. I shoved 15 sheets into it, and it took it like a champ, without breaking much of a sweat. 15 sheets is a good handful of paper. So I’ve been feeding it gobs of paper, not even counting, probably over the 14 page limit from time to time, and it just nonchalantly plows through it all, no worries at all. With the Fellowes, it was always suspenseful — it’s choking, will it make it through? Will I have to pull the paper back out? Did I jam it again? Whew… Repeat. Little drama queen, that Fellowes.
Anyway, when the bin on the Bonsaii filled up I slid out the drawer (mashed the shreds down a bit, and got a bunch more papers through before I HAD to dump it) and took it out to the bin without leaving a mess of paper leavings on the office floor. With the Fellowes I had to pick up the entire top part, invariably leaving paper dangling, and set it on the floor, paper dust going everywhere, to dump the bucket. So this new design will work much better for me, though I can imagine difficulties if I overfill it with shreds, since pulling out a tray when the paper shreds are stacked higher than the top of the door will probably scrape a pile of paper shreds into the inside of the machine. Will have to see.
But all in all, I’m very pleased with this purchase. Strong, steady, not jamming (yet), I haven’t tried abusing it (shoving in ten sheets cockeyed so they buckle and bend) but I’m sure that’ll happen. If anything untoward happens, I’ll update this review.
But very pleased so far.
