Aurora manufactures an entire line of office supplies that range from furniture to calculators as well as a variety of Aurora paper shredders. Although these machines have received some complaints, they continue to be at the centre of the company’s product line.
The primary concerns expressed by the shredders‘ users are based on their reliability. The discussions remark about the poor quality plastic parts that render the whole machine inoperative. Some users have also complained about the machines‘ need to cool down after long periods of extended use.
However, this is normal thermodynamics and does not indicate any faults. Other complaints about the shredders are that they arrive broken and that they fail immediately either soon after arrival or soon after the first year in service. However, there have been customer reviews about the paper shredders that indicate longer lives for these machines.
