Just in time for National Protect Your Identity Week, Consumer Reports rates 19 Paper Shredders

 

Tips on how long to keep important financial papers

Consumer ReportsYonkers, NY – Consumer Reports’ tests of 19 cross-cut paper shredders revealed four recommended models (Black & Decker CC1500, Go EcoLife GXC120Ti, and two from Staples, the SPL-TXC22A console type and wastepaper basket-type, respectively.)

These models were easy to operate, shredded paper faster than the others, had fewer paper jams, and required less frequent emptying. They were also among the most expensive units tested, costing $150.00 to $270.00.

Consumer Reports’ testers fed the 19 shredders about 25,000 pages (left over from a recent printer test). Two types of shredders were tested: With a pull-out console model, you empty the device pulling out a drawer that collects the shreds; with a wastepaper-basket shredder, you lift the shredder mechanism off of a basket that holds the shreds.  Each one met its claims for paper handling and destroying credit cards. The units that claimed to handle data discs (CDs and DVDs), paper clips, and staples, managed those items too. «Read the rest of this article»
