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.

Bought two - both no longer reliably staple

By IMGFINA

from Los Angeles, CA, USA

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

Have always loved Swingline staplers and since we need to staple upwards of 30-40 pages at a time, figured this stapler would be perfect. And it is when it works, which now is about once every 7 or 8 tries. And seeing that we use the Optima staples as per the instructions, we are wasting a lot of money. Definitely expected better quality and reliability from Swingline, a company I have known and trusted for the past 30 years. Alas.

This stapler is the jam! Literally... :(

By Citizen451

from Atlanta, GA

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

Considering the price, I hoped this would be a quality stapler for my office. It looks nice, is padded and stands up for easy grasping. It is pretty heavy considering it is designed to be hand held. It is also stiff despite having used it enough for it to loosen up. The most disappointing is how often it jams. This thing jams up at least 4 times between loading more staples and lately it literally jams every 3 staples! I figured it was the cheap staples and bought the type instructed on the stapler but saw no improvement. Don't waste your time and money on this one! Very disappointed.

Not satisfied

By Mandy

from Purvis, MS 39475, USA

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

I bought this stapler hoping it would be great. As a teacher, I use a stapler daily. This stapler was great in the beginning but didn't last long. After only a short time it started jamming and didn't staple properly.

use only quality staples

By jstan

from Vancouver, BC

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

I bought this product yesterday thinking it would solve the problem I am having with my Staples generic stapler that won't hold 10 pieces of paper together . I took the staples from my old stapler and tried them in the Swingline with similar results. These are standard Staples brand staples. I then tried the staples that came with the new stapler. The difference was amazing. I tried the Swingline staples in the old stapler with much better results as well. Although my review seems to be about staples, the Swingline stapler is of good quality and easier to use.
