As well, the Cost-$50-when-new shredder I've got at work (rescued from
the trash) can very effectively irreversably damage CDs, if not break
them apart. I have even sent plastic (did some damage to) and ceramic
(just came out the bottom) package surplus ICs through it, and it still
shreds paper.

If your local office supply store has "demo" models, just bring some AOL
CDs, or use the free ones they probably have at the checkout counter,
to evaluate models before you buy one. :)
