MBM Destroyit 2403 Paper Shredder Review

MBM Destroyit 2403 Paper ShreddersKeeping your personal information safe, secure and inaccessible is critical to protecting your identity. One great way to help cut down on identity theft is by using a paper shredder. Unfortunately many paper shredders out there aren’t up to the task. One reliable shredder that you may want to consider using is the MBM Destroyit 2403 paper shredder (found here). This is my review.

Destroyit (by IDEAL) continues to be one of the leading paper shredder manufacturers around. These German engineered and German made shredders are known for lasting years to even decades. MBM Destroyit shredders come in a variety of sizes, depending on where they will be used and how many people will use them.

The Destroyit 2403 is definitely an office shredder, although it can be used at home. It is available in both a strip cut (Security Level 2) and a cross cut (Security Level 4) version, depending on your preference and desired shredder security level. The strip cut can shred more paper at once, but the cross cut shreds paper into tinier pieces.

Destroyit has really refined the user controls for shredders. The 2403, as with most Destroyit shredders, utilizes a rocker control for shredder operation. The button tilts forward to turn it on and off. When on, the button is green. It tilts back to but the shredder into reverse mode, turning the switch red.

A series of lights let you know if the shredder is full or if door is open. It even features a load indicator that will stop the shredder if too much paper is fed in and will back the paper back out. This helps to prevent paper jams.

One thing you will probably notice when you use the 2403 is how fast it is. Unlike many cheap department store shredders, the Destroyit 2403 shreds paper in just seconds. It is gone almost as fast as you can feed it in. This is ideal for shredding large amounts of paper.

The Destroyit 2403 is not only fast, but it is also extremely safe to use. It implements what is called the Safety Protection System (SPS) package. This includes a transparent safety shield that prevents accidental shredding and personal injury.

The blades on the 2403 are tough. Both the strip cut and cross cut versions use high-quality hardened steel blades. These blades allow the 2403 to easily handle staples, paper clips and credit cards. The strip cut version can even shred CDs.

The 2403 can easily be placed next to a desk or along a wall for use by multiple people. The motor is thermally protected, allowing it to be continually used without a cool down period. As is the case with all Destroyit shredders, the 2403 is quieter than your average shredder.

I highly recommend this shredder for use in the office. It is dependable, reliable and extremely effective at shredding paper. I give this shredder a solid 5 out of 5 stars. You won’t be disappointed.
