Special features

The Peach PS500-70 is the smallest, space-saving and lightest document shredder in our test. At the same time, it is also the cheapest shredder. It is the only one that has no rollers on the bottom of the device.

The Peach PS500-70 is impressive because of its simple modest design and its focus on practicality. Directly above the paper feeder, a lot of valuable safety instructions have been attached. These make it possible to make sure that all safety instructions are followed during each operation. The paper feeder is pretty narrow so that unnecessary risks, which could lead to serious injuries, are avoided. Directly in front of the paper feeder is the control panel, which is a switch that can be moved to the sides. However, as with all other devices, it looks less modern. In addition, three LEDs have been attached to the top of the unit, which lights up warningly during operation and in the event of problems such as overheating or paper jams.

The Peach PS500-70 Particle Shredder has two different modes of operation: an Auto mode, in which the shredder shreds as soon as the paper is fed in, and a Reverse mode, which throws out the sheets if there is a paper jam. In our test, the PS500-70 destroyed a maximum of 17 sheets per pass and took 12 seconds to do so. A single page was cut in 8 seconds and 85 sheets of paper were destroyed in one minute. At maximum capacity, however, the device works quite loud with a measured 79.9 dB. And as far as power consumption is concerned, this device is anything but economical: at maximum capacity, it consumed a maximum of 415.42 W and 1.3 W in standby mode. On the positive side, however, this shredder hardly heats up during continuous use for 15 minutes and the maximum temperature we were able to measure was 28.9 degrees Celsius.

Capacity & Cut size

Due to the slimness of the device, the collection container of the device with a capacity of 18 litres is also rather small. However, the Peach PS500-70 surprises positively with a capacity of 310 sheets. The cut size is 4.2 cm x 0.5 cm.

We have evaluated approximately 80 customer reviews on the Internet. In summary, it can be said that about 80 percent of buyers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars). Partially (2 stars) or completely dissatisfied are almost 10 percent of the users. The average score at the time of the evaluation was 4.3 out of 5 stars.
