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.

So so stapler

By Michi

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

Before I bought this stapler I had asked around my company to see what the overall consensus was. Everyone gave it rave reviews. When I received the stapler it worked great. That was two weeks ago. Every once in a while it would not staple correctly. It wouldn't jam it would just not close the staple prongs all the way. Now the problem happens more often than not and I will be returning the stapler to the nearest store. Very disappointed.

Stopped working

By grab8810

from Philadelphia, PA, USA

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

Expensive product, and like other people on here, worked fine until going to reload it for the first time and now it jams and doesn't work. Have only ever used the recommended staples in it, and have only had it for about a month or less.

Not worth buying

By notahappycustomer

from Virginia

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

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

Bought this stapler in Jan 2014 specifically to handle 2-40 sheets. Worked well for about 6 months, but it's been frustrating since. The staples buckle or won't staple at all. The staples tend to get jammed. Thought perhaps it was the staples, but tried another brand and it still has the same issues. I did buy the suggested Optima staples.

Can't figure out if it opens up to staple onto bulletin boards. If it has the capability, please advise.
