I bought one of these for my sales department. We are in manufacturing so there is a lot of prints and data sheets that need to be kept with quotes and orders. Seventy-five percent of the time a high quality stapler works fine, but larger jobs needed a bit more. We have a shared 20-120 sheet stapler that seems too big at times. This one was perfect. It does take a little more power to squeeze, but that is to be expected. For those with weaker hands I would reccommend the lever action one! All my staplers are Swingline and I would buy nothing else! Bravo! I am buying 2 more of these now!

Interesting that these reviews are all over the place . . .

My experience: bought this specifically for a project of 36 sheets of 20 lb. paper to be stapled & my ever-reliable 1973 Swingline 711 couldn't handle it although it tried. Bought the Optima staples recommended for it on the box by Swingline (#35556, 1/4") as I wanted it to go well. Well, it did not. It's not the fault of the stapler, per se, rather standard 1/4" staples are not long enough for the capacity advertised. Ironically, the 711 got the pages stapled as well as the Optima 40.

The Optima 40 doesn't have too large a footprint for a desk and will fit into a drawer sideways; good looking; great stapler feel; easy on the hands and elbows; etc. I'd have loved it if it had been engineered to take high capacity staples.

I exchanged it for the larger model, Optima 70, that does use high capacity staples. FABULOUS! Great job and all the same other great things that the 40 is.

So, it'll be the 711 for jobs up to 25 pages and the 70 for larger jobs.

Dont waste your money

By Utility

from Indiana

Comments about Swingline® Optima® Desktop Full Strip Stapler, 40 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

Right out of the package and it sticks. I went to staple something and it would not release the papers. It has happened before on this same stapler...first one I thought I just got a bad one. NOPE!

Product is high-maintenance.

By Tiz999

from Montreal, QC, Canada

Comments about Swingline® Optima® Desktop Full Strip Stapler, 40 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

Bought this about 6 months ago. Since day one , had problems loading a whole line of staples in. Have to push them in. Also recently, noticed that the bottom part was loose. Had to remove rubber and a screw fell out. Had to tighten the screw.

Poor engineering and poor manufacturing

By klkho

from New York, NY

Comments about Swingline® Optima® Desktop Full Strip Stapler, 40 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

I bought this stapler thinking that it would be a durable and efficient desk stapler. But the first time I tried to load some staples in the stapler the button for ejecting the staples guide simply collapsed and fall apart. I did not even force the button but just push it hard to get the staple guide to eject. What a disappointing product! This engineering design and execution of manufacturing is simply unacceptable.

Busted Button

By reese78

from Great Falls, MT, USA

Comments about Swingline® Optima® Desktop Full Strip Stapler, 40 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

As soon as I took this stapler out of the packaging and pushed the back release button, the button popped off and a spring fell on the floor. I tried to get the spring back in, but have no clue where it is supposed to go. I was able to get the staples loaded, and it seemed to staple ok, but no better than one of the little mini staplers. So far seems like a waste of money.

Not long before you cannot open to refill

By Sianin

from Smithers, BC, Canada

Comments about Swingline® Optima® Desktop Full Strip Stapler, 40 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

This is the second time that I am going to load my Optima 40 and unfortunately I cannot open it anymore. For an expensive stapler that is not a very long life. Would not recommend. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix or open....
