Shred that persoanl data, don't just throw it away!



Specifications

The Swingline Stack-and-Shred is a cool and compact paper shredder that can shred single sheets or stacks of up to 100 sheets automatically. The thing holds up to 7 gallons of shreds and can shred credit cards, staples, and paper clips too. It uses a cross cut mechanism and is available right now for about $200.

In Use

I have never had a shredder in my home before. I always felt funny just tossing things like credit card applications and old paperwork with sensitive info and my signature into the trash. I would tear the stuff up, but that hardly kept the important stuff from being readable if someone wanted to.

Swingline sent me out its latest shredder to test out. The Swingline Stack-and-Shred is a nice looking machine that is sized to be about as large as your average trashcan. It fits easily under the desk and has a cord that is attached and non-removable. You have two options with the Swingline Stack-and-Shred, you can feed individual pages into the feeder on top or you can put a pile of up to 100 pages inside the shredder tray and it will shred the pages one at a time.

That automatic feeder is great if you are clearing out files since you can put a bunch inside and not sit there feeding them through all the time. The motor and blades are strong enough to hack right through staples and paperclips so you don’t have to remove them before shredding.

The shreds are cross cut and once they are in the bin I can't imagine anyone being able to reassemble them into something legible. The largest shreds are about an inch long and less than a quarter of an inch wide.

If you are done with your old credit cards you can feed them into a special slot to shred up. Some shredders can shred up CDs too, but the Swingline Stack-and-Shred lacks that feature. It would be nice if it could shred CDs though since a lot of them have sensitive data and short of microwaving them or breaking them there is no way to remove data from most CDs or DVDs.

Swingline says that the shredder is quiet. In my house it's actually pretty loud. It's certainly not going to leave ears ringing, but you can easily hear it running several rooms away. It’s not something you can fire up at night and not wake up somebody sleeping.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Works great

Cons

  • Loud
  • No CD shredding
  • Expensive
 

Conclusion

The Swingline Stack-and-Shred is perfect for the small office or home office person that wants to shred things rather than just throwing them away. It works very well.
