Intimus 502CD Credit Card, CD and Disk Shredder Review

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

Intimus 502CD Floppy Disk, CD, DVD and Credit Card ShredderDo you need a specialized shredder that is designed to specifically shred compact discs (CDs), DVDs, floppy disks and credit cards? One model you may want to look at is the Intimus 502CD floppy disk, CD and credit card shredder (found here). This is my review.

There aren’t many specialized multimedia shredders out there. Many manufacturers try to combine multiple shredding options into one machine. Some manufacturers do it well, where others fail miserably.

Intimus, made by Martin Yale, decided to make a machine designed and built from the ground up to handle floppy disks and optical media. The Intimus 502CD is so specialized that it doesn’t shred paper. It has a 4 15/16″ opening for CDs and DVDs and a 3 3/4″ opening for floppy disks. It can also be used to shred video game discs (Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo) and Blu-ray discs.

Because it is designed specifically to shred CDs, DVDs, credit card and floppy disks, it is fast. It operates at a speed of up to 800-1200 pieces per hour. This is far faster than what a multi-purpose shredder can do.

The shred particle size is 5/16″ x 13/16″ (7.9mm x 20.6mm). For optical media, this is small. As you might imagine, a floppy disk or CD that has been cut into tiny particles is pretty much impossible to read. The shred bin on the 502CD can hold up to one cubic feet of shredded material.

Who uses the Intimus 502CD? This machine is primarily used by government and military organizations, but is also used by businesses for mass data and software destruction. The shredder is compact enough that it can be used in most offices without being an obstacle.

We sell quite a few of the Intimus 502CD shredders and I can safety say that our customers are satisfied with the quality and the functionality. Intimus has developed a great reputation and the Intimus 502CD doesn’t let you down.

Applied Magnetics Infostroyer 101 CD Destroyer Review

Monday, June 28th, 2010

Applied Magnetics Infostroyer 101 CD DestroyerDestroying unused information seems like a no-brainer. You certainly don’t want sensitive information falling into the wrong hands. One thing a lot of people don’t think of is that compact disks (CDs) also need to be destroyed. In fact, one CD can hold thousands of pages of data. One good way to destroy this data is by using a CD destroyer like the Applied Magnetics Infostroyer 101 (found here). This is my review.

The Applied Magnetics Infostroyer 101 is a CD destroyer, sometimes referred to as a CD grinder. The science behind the machine is sound. You insert the disk into the machine and it grinds the disk down, destroying the data and making it completely unreadable. The machine is automatic. Put in a disk and the machine does the rest. It can destroy CDs, CD-Rs and CD-RWs.

The Infostroyer is NSA approved (NSA/CSS 04-02). This means it can be used by the government and military for the destruction sensitive and top-secret data. The entire CD grinding process takes about four seconds, which is really fast. This is fast.

The Infostroyer 101 is designed to be portable. It only weighs in at 19 pounds and is available with an optional carrying case with wheels and telescoping handle. This makes the Infostroyer 101 deployable.

Are you feeling patriotic or are you required to buy American? We have you covered. Our entire line of Applied Magnetics shredders, disintegrators and grinders are made in the USA. The quality is unsurpassed.

One downside to the Infostroyer 101 is that it cannot be used to destroy DVDs. It is designed for CDs only. If you are destroying DVDs, you will need to upgrade to the Infostroyer 201 found here.

Overall I am very impressed with the Infostroyer 101 and consider it to be one of the fastest and most efficient ways to destroy CDs. You can find the Applied Magnetics Infostroyer 101 here. You can find our entire selection of CD shredders and destroyers here.
