Review On Quality
The Bonsaii C149-D outperforms most shredders in its category. The Bonsaii’s biggest selling point is its whisper quiet shredding performance. Users can really shred up to 12 sheets of paper for a whole continuous hour without bothering or interrupting anyone around them. Most micro-shredders in this price range can continuously shred for only 6-8 minutes before it shuts down for 45 minutes for a cool down.
Beyond its performance, the transparent window on the Bonsaii’s 6-gallon pull out wastebasket makes it easy to see when the bin is full. The paper input slot is 8.7″ wide and narrow – perhaps the wide but narrow slot is a safety design. The casters make it very easy to move around. Additionally, it can also be completely turned off or left on an AUTO setting.
The biggest issue with this shredder is that it was designed to shred paper only. The manufacturers explicitly instruct users not to put CDs, credit cards, staples, paperclips, etc through this shredder. However, some users have disregarded those instructions and report that it can shred CDs, credit cards, staples, etc with no problem. Overall, Amazon users give this shredder 4.6 out of 5 stars with over 500 reviews.
