At first we just thought it was an interesting little gizmo. Now we're seriously considering donating our electric shredder and ordering it. We just don't have the space to keep extra office equipment, and right now the darn thing's taking up valuable real estate in a closet. We like the Shredder Hand for its compactness, convenience, and portability. It's obviously not right for people who shred copious amounts of paper, but it would be just right for the rest of us.
