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.

Poor review = lack of customer service

By CFS1966

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.

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

      A bit surprised to see so many negative reviews. I've used this stapler as my go-to stapler for the last two years in a busy law practice, meaning that I've used it thousands of times. It never jammed or not work properly. Highly recommend it.

      this product is terrible!!!!

      By Greg894

      from Maryville tn

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

      I have had three of these after returning 2 others that didn't last more than 3 months. The third one broke into a bunch of pieces and pinched a good cut on my finger. The product has a good warrany but will never last even in the smallest of uses. If it breaks don't try to unjamb or open it because you will just hurt yourself.
