I don't own this exact shredder, so I can't speak to it specifically. However, I have owned a more basic Shredz 8-page shredder for almost a year now and it has handled everything I throw at it with no problem (up to its rated limit, including credit cards, which it destroys with ease).
I noticed not long ago that it was starting to collect some paper in the teeth, so I ran a shredder lubricant sheet through and it cleared it right up. Take care of your shredder and it will take care of you - or, at least, your sensitive documents.

I've had 4 shredders over the past few years and all but one died quickly. It doesn't seem to matter what brand or where it's made. I've had the Staples Mailmate that lasted about 13 months.. 1 year warranty.
Another was an expensive Fellowes, it lasted 6 months.. 90 day warranty.
The only one that lasted was a small shredder that does only 1 page at a time, and you have to fold each sheet of paper in half. That one has lasted about 7 years and still works.
Shredders have now become disposable because they have become so ubiquitous. You're no better off buying a $200 one than a $40 one. And they are all made in China. So, get over the idea that you can get one made in the US.
