With heightened awareness around identity theft and protecting your personal security, shredding your personal documents has become a reality for millions of people today. However, the typical paper shredders that you can purchase leave a lot to be desired when it comes to durability, capacity and just basic shredding power. Honestly, have you ever been able to get one of these lower priced home paper shredders to ever last more than a season of steady shredding use? It certainly has been my frustrating experience, I’ve gone through 3 or 4 home shredders that simply don’t hold up. It seems that the paper and items I put through the shredders I’ve bought tear up the shredder more than the shredder tears up the paper.
Introducing the Heavy Duty Cross Cut Paper Shredder from Hammacher Schlemmer. First of all, as you’ll notice from the picture, calling this just a “paper shredder” is probably a misnomer. The picture actually shows a CD-ROM disk ready to meet it’s demise. This commercial strength heavy duty shredder can easily shred much more than paper.
The Heavy Duty Coss Cut Paper Shredder has received the highest rating for shredding capacity and ease of use by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute. And notice the “Lifetime Guarantee” offered by Hammacher Schlemmer. This heavy duty commercial strength shredder has to be durable to meet the lifetime guarantee and that eliminates any worries that the shredder won’t last or hold up.
The lesser quality strip-cut shredder models you’re probably more familiar with only minimally obscure your information, and determined thieves can easily piece your ribbon-cut documents back together if they’re so inclined. This commercial grade cross cut shredder, on the other hand, completely obliterates up to 16 sheets of paper in a single feed and is able to thoroughly destroy and pulverize CDs and credit cards as well.
The heavy duty cross cut shredder is designed with two steel counter-rotating cross-cutting gears that cut paper into parallelogram-shaped unrecognizable shreds. And the shredder has the precision to destroy paper as small an 1/8 inch by 1 inch. The shredder will cut credit cards and CD-ROM disks into minuscule pieces impossible to reassemble. And that’s what you need a proper shredder to do. Not just make you feel better that you’re making an attempt to obscure your documents and information, but rather, truly making your information impossible to decipher!
The Heavy Duty Cross Cut Paper Shredder has some other useful features built in with an LCD display that indicates when the seven gallon container is full. The shredder also has an auto-start, stop and reverse function, and weighs about 30 pounds.

I don’t know about you, but I can never manage to have enough backup disk space. With all the computer systems, media files, images, and software archives that I need to keep fully backed up, it just seems like I never have enough room on my backup drives. If you’re looking for the absolute best in a huge capacity external hard drive then you’ll want to pay close attention to the Fantom GreenDrive 2 TB External Hard Drive.
First of all, the Fantom GreenDrive External Hard Drive provides 2 TB of disk storage space. That’s 2 trillion bytes of storage! Now maybe eventually you will fill this drive up, but that’s a huge amount of disk storage.
Here’s where this external hard drive really shines. The Fantom GreenDrive supports both the USB 2.0 and eSATA interface for high performance throughput and is designed with an advanced technology that reduces power consumption by up to 40 percent.
And customer feedback validates that this drive is really capable of lightening fast performance through the eSATA interface, more so than the USB 2.0 (eSATA is a higher performance specification than USB 2.0). It only makes sense that the larger the storage capacity, the more you’ll depend on fast, high performance to move files to and from the external hard drive.

The Fantom GD200EU GreenDrive yields an average hard drive power savings of 4 to 5 watts compared to other competitor’s hard drives. This substantial power savings translates to an amazing CO2 emission footprint reduction of up to 60 kilograms per year. That’s equivalent to taking your automobile off the road for fourteen days each year. Perhaps you’ve never worried too much about the environmental impact of your external hard drive but it’s nice to know that that you’ll be making a difference with a Fantom External Hard Drive!
Think the Fantom GreenDrive is going to be too expensive! Well, we saved the best news for last. You can pick up the Fantom GreenDrive 2 TB External Hard Drive at TigerDirect at the unbelievable low price of $139.97. Are you kidding me, $139.97 for a 2 TB hard drive. Now that is amazing!
It’s always a challenge to achieve adequate lighting in your kitchen. And coming up with properly focused spot lighting on some of your preferred work areas can lead to even more customized and expensive lighting applications. But definitely nice to have! A particularly effective and low cost way to illuminate your key work areas in your kitchen is with the Under Cabinet Pivoting LED Spotlights from Hammacher Schlemmer.
These Under Cabinet Pivoting LED Spotlights swivel and adjust to throw a bright wash of light in any direction. The four LED lamp heads rotate a full 360º and pivot from side to side 30º, providing a flexible lighting solution that enables you to direct light over your specific favorite work areas.
Each individual LED light consists of a high output 1 watt LED lamp that illuminates up to 20x brighter than a typical LED. And the best thing about LED technology is the much lower heat output. These lights remain cool to the touch even after they’ve been running for a long period of time. And that makes it easy to reach up and adjust the lights and change the projection angle at any time without fear or worry of burning yourself on a scorching hot lamp or light bulb.
The Under Cabinet Pivoting LED Spotlights have two adjustable levels of light output. And these high quality LED lamps last up to 100,000 hours. That’s an amazing 11 1/2 years if you left the lights on continuously 24/7. Multiple LED light units can be connected while only requiring one of them to be plugged into a power outlet. This makes it easy and convenient to mount the LED spotlights under your kitchen cabinet and plug the array into a suitable power source.
The Under Cabinet Pivoting LED Spotlights include an easy to install mounting bracket. And the brushed metal finish will add a sense of style and look attractive in any modern kitchen.
