HSM Shredstar PS820C, 20-Sheet, Cross Cut, Continuous Operation Shredder
With a security level of P-4 and a cutting capacity of 20 sheets per pass, this super silent unit from HSM does all of the things you'd expect from a reliable home use shredder. The PS820C runs at a volume of 58 decibels along with Anti-Jam technology in the event there's too much material in the cutting slot.
This one is among the quietest shredders on our list and perfect for use at home or in a personal use setting at the office. The unit shreds paper as well staples, paper clips, CD's, DVD's, credit cards, and even lets you know when the 7.1 gallon bin is full. HSM even includes a lifetime warranty on the cutting heads so your unit is always ready to get the job done. This shredder isn’t recommended for heavy-duty office environments and better suited for casual shredding work.
