Fellowes P-12C Paper Shredder Does It Right The First Time: A Review and Giveaway!

These days it is more important then ever to safeguard your privacy.  How many times have you heard about stolen identities and the problems that you face when it happens? 

That's why having a good paper shredder is critical to keep your personal information out of the hands of those who can use it against you.

I recently received the Fellowes P-12C Shredder for review.  I turned to my boyfriend to put it to the test in his office, where safeguarding sensitive documents is of the utmost importance.  This is what he had to say:

" I was impressed with this shredder right out of the box!  It had a sleek design and really complimented my office decor.  It was a breeze to set-up and I was able to use it right away. 

I fed it a few sheets to see if it would jam ( like the old non-Fellowes shredder I had been using) and the sheets went through easily.  I then tried a thicker stack of sheets and guess what..NO JAMMING!  What a pleasure to use! 

I thought for sure if i put in some stapled items that it would surely jam but no..the Fellowes P-12C handled that with ease as well!

I am entirely confident in the protection I now have for sensitive documents being shredded the Fellowes way!"

•Active shredder safety technology for the home office

•Shreds 12 sheets per pass into 5/32x2" crosscut particles (Security Level 3)
