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.

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

    I'm really surprised with all of the negative reviews about this stapler. It has worked great for me and I have had it now for about a year - still no issues. I am actually ordering another one so my boss will have his own and stop using mine so often. :)

    This product has trouble loading

    By BethanyD

    from Washington, DC, USA

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

    This is a decent product, but has great difficulty being re-loaded. I am trying to refill the staples for the first time, but cannot because the button is broken. What is the point of having a stapler when you can't even use it more than once? Would not recommend.

    Does not hold up!

    By HSTeacher

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

    I bought two of these staplers for my classroom last year and they are now both non-working. They have not been abused by the students. I go through about 2 Swingline staplers a year because they DO NOT hold up. I am very disappointed in this company.

    This product looks effecient and proficient but it does not work.

    By TheLibrarian

    from Thomasville, AL, USA

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

    We purchased this stapler for our campus library. We had to have the first one replaced because it fell apart. However, the replacement will not staple. I have even googled it to see if there was something I did not remove or something. But nothing has worked. It has been useless to us.

    Poor review = lack of customer service

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

    The Swingline Optima 40 stapler is a great product. It works wonderfully for the use that I have put it through. I've had it and used it for only one year. The past three months it sat in a cabinet not being used so actually only been used regularly for 7 months. Just this past week, it was not stapling correctly. The staples were not penetrating the paper, not even on just two papers being stapled. I took it and the staples being used to my local Staples store. They refused to exchange it because it was over 14 days purchased. They said the jump mechanism does that. I spent over $45 bucks on this stapler and to be told it just does that. They said I could buy another one as they were on sale or I could contact Swingline directly. The lack of customer service is the reason for this poor review. Staples is more concerned about selling product than keeping long time customers. Swingline was wonderful, they sent me a new stapler. They apologized for Staples because Staples poor customer service reflects on them as well. They said Staples could have called themselves and requested the product while I was in the store to accommodate me. Thanks Swingline, no thanks to Staples.
