I’ve been accused of being paranoid about my personal papers, but protecting my bank statements, credit card statements, doctors bills and other sensitive documents is no frivolous matter. Not when family, friends and acquaintances have all been ravaged by identity theft. If you opened your monthly credit card statement and found “you” had bought $7000 worth of high-tech gadgetry – which was delivered to your house, but was picked up by an identity thief while you were at work – you’d wish you’d paid more attention to the proper disposal of personal papers. You have to take steps to protect your social security number, account numbers, and possible passwords. One big step would be using a Fellowes 79Ci personal paper shredder.
Fellowes, Inc. designed and manufactured the very first personal shredder in 1990. Today, Fellowes is the category leader in product innovation, staying at the forefront of the technologies that make the shredding experience faster, safer and easier.
Jamming is the number one shredder complaint, and Fellowes is the only brand on the market with 100 percent Jam Proof technology. Although other brands may offer anti-jam features, none combine the key elements that ensure multiple levels of advanced jam prevention. A sophisticated sensor at the shredder throat measures the thickness of a paper stack and automatically stops a paper jam before it occurs.
The 100 percent Jam Proof technology also detects when paper has been mis-fed or fast-fed into the shredder, and turbo-powers through the job or reverses the paper for easy removal.
Similar to a traffic light which lets a driver know when they can proceed, an indicator light on the 79Ci lets the user know when they are nearing sheet capacity. A green to yellow light indicates the user is within paper capacity. This instant feedback allows a job to be completed faster and easier.
This machine is uniquely designed to address personal shredding needs in the home, home office or business setting, and contains a combination of industry-leading technologies and innovation unmatched in the marketplace, including:
• Cross-Cut technology: Heavy-duty blades destroy a single sheet of paper into 399 particles, making it nearly impossible to piece back together.
• SilentShred™ technology: Whisper-quiet motor offers ultra-quiet performance for shared workspaces.
• SafeSense® technology: Advanced electronic safety sensor automatically disables the shredder when hands touch the paper opening.
• Fellowes 79Ci is available at Staples for a suggested retail price of $239.99.
