Worth every penny.
I bought this to replace an older shredder that broke. This one was twice the money but it can handle a lot more and does not require a cool down period. I had about 20lbs of paper to shred that had piled up over some time. This handled it no problem. Took several sessions of 30-40 minutes but never overheated. The 14 sheet feed sounds about right. Any more and it would jam. Jams do not clear as easy as stated, The reverse did not free up the paper very well. Had to rip it out a few sheets at a time. But after clearing, it kept on going. It also took thin cardboard, plastic cards, no issues. I highly recommend getting the lubrication sheets. They are easy to use and make oiling the cutters safe and quick. It will last a lot longer.

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SHREDDER!
This is an amazing shredder. It just doesn't overheat, which is the biggest humbug with shredders. I shred, shred, shred, with no stoppage. The only time I stop is to empty out the bin. If you make sure you don't "overload" your bin, emptying it out is no problem, and is not messy. The window in front is great. In-between, I'll pull out the drawer and push the rubbish around to make it more level, so I can shred more into the bin. This is so worth the cost. Just a few more dollars than those smaller type shredders that stop sometimes after only 5 minutes. GET IT! You will not be disappointed.

Cuts well but things got screwy after a few months ...
Cuts well but things got screwy after a few months. The auto-off switch malfunctioned, so it keeps running until manually switched off. Blades cleaned to ensure no paper is clogging things up. Cutting performance overshadows the switch hassle. I use 8-gallon plastic bags to line the clippings bin--not user friendly design--care needed to avoid tearing bags.

the Auto-Off feature stopped working and the unit either turned on and Ran by itself or would Not stop running after the paper
The 3S23 that i purchased cut paper very well but after a short time and little home office usage, the Auto-Off feature stopped working and the unit either turned on and Ran by itself or would Not stop run-in after the paper had passed through and i cleaned it very well and made sure the on/off sensor was not blocked or dirty.
I am giving the AlumiGogo Seller "Hommii" a 5 STAR rating for their customer Service and follow through, I am very satisfied by their replies and efforts and I Highly recommend this Seller based on my experience.

Good Unit - with some minor issues
August 2106 It seems to be working well. Handles a lot of paper, cuts it up into unrecognizable pieces, and isn't too loud.
Update March 2017 It has worked well although for the past month it doesn't stop even after all the pages are shredded. I have to physically turn it off. There must be a sensor that is blocked. Also, it have proven almost impossible to empty out without making a mess. There needs to be a way to put a garbage bag inside before you start shredding.

Cooling Fan! Great Shredder!!
A fan. A great way to minimize the problem of over-heating shredders. The quality of the shredder is excellent. The quality of the shred is very good. We have been using it for some time and are very happy with it. Highly recommended. Make sure to keep the blades lubricated as instructed in the manual.

So far so good. Have had for a few weeks and works well. Quieter than the last one I had. No complaints.

Otherwise I love it. That's a very annoying problem however
It's much quieter than my old shredder. It's possibly faster. My one complaint is the bags i've used so far have been difficult to remove from the shredder and have had holes poked in them, causing shreds to "leak" out. Otherwise I love it. That's a very annoying problem however, since I really prefer using bags to collect the shreds. Is there a solution?

Excellent Shredder but expect a mess when emptying the container
This shredder is a powerful shredder that does a fantastic job of shredding and it will keep going for up to two hours before overheating. The bad news is that this company didn't think about how to pull out the container without having shredded paper all over the floor! It's a shame that this wasn't rectified before putting it out for sale.

Sounded great but did not deliver.
The unit did not work right out of the box - I contacted AlumiGogo, the paperwork was simple and the shredder was picked up the next day. I received a credit within a couple of days. AlumiGogo certainly makes returns easy. Despite all the great reviews, descriptions and specifications with the Bonsaii, I remain gun shy regarding this brand.
