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.

      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.

          I always look for bargains, and this was a good buy for minmum everyday use, but it definitely doesn't staple 20 sheets of paper, ever!

              Bought it for use in a small office. It was a little slow to staple in the beginning (5-6 second wait after inserting pages). Then after less than 1 year, it got to the point where it jammed constantly. I would not recommend this at all.
