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:

This stapler is so bad I don't know why they continue to manufacture it! We have purchased 9 or so, I believe ONE of those did not fall apart completely. We've had the bottom panels fall off, latches let go so staples won't stay in, constant jamming, striker plate break off. Never seen a lamer excuse for a stapler in my life. Sure they're warranteed, but the replacements break just as fast. Save yourself a lot of hassle and don't buy this product.

    This stapler seemed more brawny than others but it broke after stapling 2 pages together.
    IF you order this, make sure to order staples that are best suited for it.
