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

Jams Consistently

By Shane

from Indiana

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

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

Not only did I buy this staple which is guaranteed not to jam (for a second time to replace one I bought a month ago that ALSO jammed), but I also bought the specialty staples to go with it. Nevertheless, it jams on 4 out of 5 uses. I'm returning this and the $7 tin of staples.

Poor quaility

By monkey

from Bakersfield, CA

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

I purchased this product because of my past successful dealings with Swingline produces. After using it for 2 months, the bottom rubber section would not stay on and the spring inside of it broke and came out. Very disappointing product.

      This is the best stapler ever!!! Very easy to use and a huge upgrade from the old heavy duty staplers. Needs very little effort to use.
