Attack of the Staples M3 Shredder

We've become so inundated with junk mail at the home office and I've had to handle so many confidential documents for clients that need to be destroyed that it finally necessitated the purchase of a home shredder. The problem with most home office shredders is that you actually need to open the junk mail and feed it through, sheet style.

We've become so inundated with junk mail at the home office and I've had to handle so many confidential documents for clients that need to be destroyed that it finally necessitated the purchase of a home shredder. The problem with most home office shredders is that you actually need to open the junk mail and feed it through, sheet style. Well, not with the new Staples MailMate M3! As you can see in the video recorded by my wife Rachel, the M3 makes easy work of junk mail envelopes, even ones with fake credit cards in them -- as well as paper with staples and all those AOL CD's you always wanted to do bodily harm to. No more opening up envelopes, just feed them through and the M3 utterly destroys it and its contents like a rabid school of piranha fish. Staples is currently running the M3 on sale on their web site for $79.95, with a $20 rebate, which makes it an attractive solution for SOHO applications. Staples also makes larger models for more demanding shredding needs, as the M3 can only feed 12 sheets of paper at a time and only has a 1.8 gallon capacity.
