Micro-cut shredder turns paper into tiny confetti-like pieces measuring 5/32 by 15/32 inches (4 by 12 mm); meets high security level P-4 standards; shreds 6x smaller than standard cross-cut shredders (2,235 pieces vs. 360 pieces)

I purchased this service when I purchased a LTE router made by Netgear. Glad I did as you cannot get any help from Netgear even though they say they offer it for free within the first 90 days. I tried multiple ways to get help from Netgear to no avail. So I called up Asurion and their service tech was great! I had only had the router about 5 days when I ran into an issue. Asurion was very responsive. I still have not received any help from Netgear and it has been almost a week since I tried to get help. It is lousy one has to buy tech support because the manufacturer won’t honor its own commitment to help the purchaser. I’ll think twice before I buy another Netgear product.

Top Critical Review

Asurion warranty FAIL. Paid for protection on my new printer purchased 9-29-19. Printer went bad 4-4-21. Tried to contact Asurion. You can only contact them via their website, no phone number, no email available. Their website said to call Canon, saying it is still under warranty. It was not. chat had no answer. I called Amazon, they gave me an email and a phone number. I emailed Asurion, I get a response saying they do not open emails. I get another response asking for more info. I email them the whole story, they say go to their website and file a claim, same problem, says it is under Canon warranty. Then I get an email saying they have canceled my policy and given me a partial refund for the insurance, but no the printer. So now I have a broken, unwarranted printer.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can it shred cardboard boxes? I am getting a lot or Amazon boxes and I am thinking about shredding them for composting. Thank you!
Answer: Seriously doubt it. It is made just for paper and plastic credit cards. It is not for heavy duty shredding like cardboard boxes.

What about staples? Can it handle staples in the manual feed? Can small numbers of sheets that are stapled together go through the automatic feeder?
Answer:

I have ran catalogs threw with three staples in it and it just eats them up love this shredder compared to my last one it??s so quiet would buy it again when it breaks I beat the snot out of it every piece of paper that comes through my house including catalogs cardboard pieces and mail credit cards cd??s you name it I????

can you shred cd?
Answer: Yes. There is a slot with a CD on the panel below the paper slot. That, plus the instructions tells me that it is for CDs and DVDs.

Would it shred cardboard?
Answer:

It will shred the equivalent of 6 standard pages of paper. It will not shred standard corrugated cardboard but will shred thin cardboard. This is a great shredder. I love mine but one has to respect it’s limitations. This isn’t a large commercial type shredder. I have a home office and I use this quite a bit and i??

User manual states you may use cooking oil to oil the machine once per month. Has anyone been doing this and does it work well?
Answer: Never use Vegetable oil (it will get sticky and ruin the shredder), however, Canola oil should work just fine and really special shredder oil is nothing more than canola oil anyway. Its what I use on two other working shredders.
