Found 27th Feb 2013
This Fellowes shredder is on Amazon's daily deal and just started at 4pm.

It has been reduced to just £39 delivered, the cheapest it has ever been. Looking at camelcamelcamel price tracker the best its been is £49.50. Making it even cheaper than its smaller brother the DS-500C!

I have this exact shredder and can say its excellent.

Ok still more expensive than a basic one, but much much better quality. This is built to last. The DS range is much better than their "P" range of shredders.

Be quick as this is only on for 6 hours if it doesnt sell out sooner.

This one shreds into fragments that measure 4mm by 46mm, according to the Amazon description.

Dont look on the RRP, but normal price is £49-59 now is 20% cheaper and amazon customer service as a bonus.

Glad I could help.

It really is excellent, I wanted something sturdy and reliable and it also looks good which is a bonus.

Great for anyone with a home office, but wouldnt be out of place in a normal office.

ps There are more reviews on the DS-1200C giving it 4.3 out of 5.

Obviously there are far more discerning buyers browsing Amazon than HUKD as 48% have already gone and I have no doubt the rest will sell out before 10pm! oO

It has already sold over 80% with only 2 hrs remaining (not that they will last til then), so get buying if you want to take advantage of this excellent deal.

A good spot and a great alternative. That one though is widely available for that money and less, so no deal.

This one however, is the best price for this model (which shows that it is more desireable than the one you suggest).

As mentioned in the OP, IMO the DS range is better than the P range and also receives slightly better reviews. Its closer to the professional range and is much sleeker (if thats important/relevant to you).

Anyway, for anyone tempted, now is the time as its showing as 94% claimed and with only a maximum of 23 minutes left.

Is it worth £39 though?

Possibly not. I thought it was, until I read this review:

I have eventually received this item. I was very disappointed because it is a small shredder and not very good if you have a lot of shredding to do. It is ideal for an every day use in a home and only for one or two sheets. Although the description says you can shred up to 7 sheets, I found that it was struggling with 3, fold an A4 sheet in half and this is it. You must be prepared not to do too much at a time. Because the machine is only half size of a normal one, the bin gets filled up very quickly.
I am disappointed because I looked at all the feedback before deciding on which shredder to buy and now I wished I had not and followed my intuition, I would have bought the same make but a different machine.

To balance that out, I think the person was reviewing the wrong shredder or they received the wrong one. It certainly isnt small! In fact its quite large.

If you look at the reviews for the other shredders in the range it comes out very favourably (I have noticed with amazon reviews that they often are for a similar model in the same range).

Just my opinion and deal now over anyway, but yes IMO well worth the £39.

Wasn't the turtles enemy called shredder?
