A while back I bought a shredder — like 4 years ago — to start shredding anything that has my name on it. ((This level of paranoia should surprise no reader.)) For the first few times I used that shredder everything was great. Then it jammed one day and I spent two hours picking everything out of it. From that point forward that shredder was the worst thing I had in my home office — the amount of hatred I had for that shredder rivals a `PC Load Letter` error.

So I asked for recommendations for something new, and no one had any for a shredder. I purchased a new one for home and it’s meh — it still works — it’s just not very good.

Then I needed a shredder for my office, to shred important things, I think.

What I purchased is a Fellowes 79Ci — which believe it or not is a simple name when it comes to shredders — and I have now run about 1,000 pages through it. I can confidently say that this is a *good* shredder.

– It’s quiet.
– It has yet to jam.
– Has a large capacity.
– Auto-reverses before it jams.

Best of all it ships via Prime and [is only `$178` and change](http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000WB397I/ref=nosim&tag=brooksreview-20) — recommended.
