I staple bingo papers together. I staple thousands of papers together. This has only misfired, on average, one time or less, per run of staples. I was a bit unsure if it would work well, but am really surprised. It works great. One problem is it can be somewhat loud. If you have to use it around other people, it can become bothersome. All around a good price for a good stapler.

This stapler is horrible it constantly jams when trying to staple 3-7 pages of regular weight paper. I try to staple a 3-7 page school report and it jams. I then have to pull the pages out with much force and pages end up ripping. Then need to clear out the jam. This happens each and everytime I have tried to use it. Totally not worth the money at all. You are better off with a cheap $2 stapler than this. I also used the Optima staples from day one and it didnt work as advertised.

Great electric stapler

By Rich

from Morristown, NJ

Verified Buyer

Comments about Swingline® Optima® Grip Electric Half Strip Stapler, 20 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

My old stapler finally died and I was able to get this new Swingline Optima at Staples at a great price. What I like about this stapler is that it is very quiet, and you can also use it as a manual stapler in addition to the automatice feature.

Defective stapler

By Swingline Electric Stapler

Comments about Swingline® Optima® Grip Electric Half Strip Stapler, 20 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

Sorry I had to return the stapler. Although I made the purchase because I had previously purchased the same item and was pleased with its function, that was not the case here. However, this second stapler was defective. When used either in auto or grip position, it stuck in the stapled position and would not release without ejecting the staple track. I returned it to the store in which I purchased to exchange the item. Unfortunately, there was only one item on the shelf and when tested, that, too, had the same problem.

      More gadget than tool

      Comments about Swingline® Optima® Grip Electric Half Strip Stapler, 20 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

      Unfortunately the top sheet or 2 wants to roll back when jobs over a couple sheets get inserted. Almost had to use 2 hands to keep the pile flat. For daily use in an active office environment it wasn't the most helpful tool. It might be ok in a home office setting when only a couple sheets at a time are needed to be connected. Not very good value for a home setting at over $40 either. Felt I had to return it.
