Need a new shredder

Our Xerox XRX 8X shredder just gave up the ghost....makes sounds and lots of pretty sparks fly but no shreddy things turn , hence not fulfilling its main function...

can anyone recommend a good brand - this is for home office use, nothing fancy, not too big, just good, durable design?

Apparently ours had some plastic parts which wore quickly....we were cheap and only paid about $125 at Staples

for shredders
I recommend this one

but otherwise the cheap ones are all the same. You have to pay quite a bit for the good ones, but they will outlast several of the cheaper ones. so think of it as an investment.

i've been happy with my fellowes PS-77Cs shredder. This thing will chew through a fair amount before it needs a break to prevent overheating. however its not a cross-cut design if you need high security.

--edit- slightly better price, not sure about shipping. I've bought from J&R before, would buy again.

Thanks so much - I think this is the one I bought for my office....I use it a fair amount and it really does seem very very good - and these are much better prices than I paid a year or so ago. I'm gonna go for it - Thanks for the links!!

Check ratings on various shredders at Amazon. They have all listed and when I checked once, they seemed to be well represented in terms of reviews.

Get a labrador retriever pup and leave it in the room with whatever you want shredded.
