This Swingline Optima 70 is a vast improvement over Swingline's other High-Capacity stapler model S7077701, Staples' item# 854548. There are three notable improvements in this new model: 1. The staples that come out have a virtually flat bottom. 2. The stapling point is moved to the front of the stapler for an unobstructed view and for better positioning and control. 3. Even less force is needed than model S7077701. The Optima 70 relies on a trigger mechanism to build up the force to shoot out a staple. Since I just bought the stapler I don't know how long the trigger mechanism will last. I mention this because some of the display models at [...]with this kind of trigger mechanism seem to quit functioning. This tells me long term durability may be an issue.I tested the Optima 70 to verify that it can indeed staple up to 70 sheets of 20-lb. paper with perfect ease.I truly enjoy the fact that it produces flat bottom staples. Flat bottom staples have three major benefits compared to traditional curved bottom staples. 1. The flat staples do not ever project sharp ends that endanger fingers. With traditional curved bottom staples, particularly when used on thick stacks of paper that exceed the capacity of either the stapler or the staples, there are frequent dangers of sharp points protruding on the underside. 2. The flat bottom staples are also much less likely to damage envelops. 3. Documents with flat bottom staples take up much less room in the file cabinet.It has a wide usability range. It can easily handle 2 sheets just as well as 70 sheets, all the while keeping the staple bottoms flat.Durability aside, which I have not had time to test, the Optima 70 is undoubtedly the best manual stapler I have ever used.

I purchased what I consider an expensive stapler for my desktop only to find that the darned thing is smarter than I am. As mentioned in other reviews the magazine does not accommodate a entire row or unit of replacement staples. Second I don't understand the diagonal staple 'crimper' on the base of the unit. Why is it diagonal? Is it modifiable for some bizarre secret mission? Now that I have broken up the replacement staple unit into parts to fill the staple carriage, the darned thing won't staple anything! The instructions should be clear as to the function of various parts. Directions should be up front: 'break the staple replacement bar in two pieces or precisely 6.8 centimeter length for replacement. I am disappointed in this product but it is not worth my time to take / ship it back to the retailer for replacement. I would entertain an exchange for a functional, perhaps simpler model designed for us "non-rocket scientist' types. wilkie

Not as Promised

By Lori

from Cape Cod

Verified Buyer

Comments about Swingline® Optima® High Capacity Half Strip Stapler, 70 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

I purchased this stapler because of the draw "jam free", which it turned out to not be true. I unboxed the item and installed the staples that were provided in the box. I was attempting to secure a 50 page architectural plan set, only to have this stapler jam time and again. I unloaded the staples and re-loaded the stapler 5 times before finally giving up. This is NOT a jam free stapler as promised. I have requested a refund, but still waiting for them to come and pick up the unit...

Effortless, indestructible - a workhorse

By DoctorJoeE

This customer has reached Intern level on the Staples.com Leaderboard

Comments about Swingline® Optima® High Capacity Half Strip Stapler, 70 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

I'm amazed at the mixed reviews. We own a half-dozen of them (I just ordered 2 more), and we use them primarily for medical charts, which can be very thick. Handles up to 70 sheets effortlessly. Better, IMO, than electric units, which jam too easily. As to why the crimper on the base is diagonal: (1) who cares? and (2) it crimps the staple legs laterally, if you must know, for reasons that are not immediately obvious to a non-stapler-expert like myself. But there is probably a valid engineering reason. Anyhow, everybody in my office loves these things. Price is admittedly steep for a stapler, but they have outlasted a buttload of cheap staplers that have trouble with 4 or 5 sheets, let alone 20 or 30.

Junk

By Jillio

from Absecon, NJ

Comments about Swingline® Optima® High Capacity Half Strip Stapler, 70 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

We purchased two Swingline Optima 70 staplers for our office. Right from the start they both didn't work. Jammed constantly, or door that holds staples would not close.

Good quality but poor stapling

By ajsmile76

from Lewistown, PA 17044, USA

Comments about Swingline® Optima® High Capacity Half Strip Stapler, 70 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

I like the look and ease and you can tell it has good quality. The disappointment is that is does not staple correctly or at all. Not sure what or how to fix it.
