It has been very reliable, and it was quite cheap when I bought it a year and a half ago.
It shreds quite finely and I get to use all the waste paper in my composting bin.
It has a nice automatic mode where it stops shredding once the paper has passed though, though I imagine all shredders have this?
For a small home shredder it's capable enough for two peoples needs, if you need to shred more than six sheets at once, then buy an uprated office use model.
The paper bin is quite small, but will hold enough for between 50 to 100 sheets, any more and the motor can audibly be heard to strain as it tries to pack more into the bin.
There are a lot of comments about the Fellowes PS-62C not coping with 10 or 20 sheets of paper at a time, but it clearly says it's only meant to shred up to six at a time (thats even stamped on the top of the shredder), can people not read these days?
We've probably only oiled ours twice in the last year or so and we shred up to 30 sheets a month at the minimum, so I'm very happy with its reliability.
It's not the quietest thing in the world, but it's only on for a few seconds so no issue there.
We do try to take out staples before we shred, but I'm sure a handful have gone through by mistake with no obvious ill effects.
