Swingline Automates Document Security, Prevents Jams
For resellers scrapping to boost the bottom line, Kensington's sister company Swingline offers yet another solution; and it's one that you'll also want to use around the office to destroy sensitive documents, old corporate credit cards and improve general security. The company sent the CRN Test Center a Swingline Stack-and-Shred model EX100-07 for testing, and we found an appliance that lived up to all claims about automatic capabilities, ease-of-use, speed and noise of operation.
Perhaps the most annoying thing about using a paper shredder (after jam clearing) is having to stand there and feed your documents slowly enough to avoid jamming. The Stack-and-Shred, as its name implies, solves this problem by employing a simple sheet feeder. As many as 100 sheets can be stacked under the hood and are fed into the shredder at an acceptable pace. After that, who cares? You've already gotten on with your day. A stack of 20 sheets took around 50 seconds to destroy. The unit lists for $499, but can be found at online retailers for $229.
