This Swingline Optima 70 is a vast improvement over Swingline's other High-Capacity stapler model S7077701, Staples' item# 854548. There are three notable improvements in this new model: 1. The staples that come out have a virtually flat bottom. 2. The stapling point is moved to the front of the stapler for an unobstructed view and for better positioning and control. 3. Even less force is needed than model S7077701. The Optima 70 relies on a trigger mechanism to build up the force to shoot out a staple. Since I just bought the stapler I don't know how long the trigger mechanism will last. I mention this because some of the display models at [...]with this kind of trigger mechanism seem to quit functioning. This tells me long term durability may be an issue.I tested the Optima 70 to verify that it can indeed staple up to 70 sheets of 20-lb. paper with perfect ease.I truly enjoy the fact that it produces flat bottom staples. Flat bottom staples have three major benefits compared to traditional curved bottom staples. 1. The flat staples do not ever project sharp ends that endanger fingers. With traditional curved bottom staples, particularly when used on thick stacks of paper that exceed the capacity of either the stapler or the staples, there are frequent dangers of sharp points protruding on the underside. 2. The flat bottom staples are also much less likely to damage envelops. 3. Documents with flat bottom staples take up much less room in the file cabinet.It has a wide usability range. It can easily handle 2 sheets just as well as 70 sheets, all the while keeping the staple bottoms flat.Durability aside, which I have not had time to test, the Optima 70 is undoubtedly the best manual stapler I have ever used.

I ordered this stapler for my employer who handles a very large amount of paper during tax season. The stapler worked great for a month or two. However, after that period of time something inside the stapler bent and caused the staples to become stuck inside the chamber. It would staple once and then become jammed. You would have to open the stapler up and pull the staples apart in order to use it again. Even then it would jam after one use. We ended up throwing away that stapler and order a replacement. The replacement did the same exact thing. It was nice while it worked!

    Comments about Swingline® Optima® High Capacity Half Strip Stapler, 70 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

    Incredibly difficult to load a full length of staples, usually I break a row and load a partial amount. Bottom of stapler constantly falls off. Pretty... strong... but not worth it.

    This product is over rated, features didn't work for me nor others

    By Smitty

    from Ontario, OR 91761, USA

    Comments about Swingline® Optima® High Capacity Half Strip Stapler, 70 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

    Purchase this Swingline Optima 70 Stapler to staple 7 sheets booklet together for my brother Funeral. Looking at the Stapler package and reading the features it was just what I need to finish my task. But for starter there was no direction with this stapler to show how to load this stapler. Check the internet to learn how to load the stapler and it was disappointed to see many was having problems with this stapler. I read on Swingline site that a simple push of the button on top of stapler would open and retract stapler housing area automatically. The stapler housing area didn't fully retract even after a gentle pull on the retractor therefore wasn't able to load stapler. A waste of my time, gas, money and cause problems due to not performing the way it display on package. This product is going back to the store quickly.

        Comments about Swingline® Optima® High Capacity Half Strip Stapler, 70 Sheet Capacity, Silver:

        The first one I bought was great. But after a couple years, I figured it was time to buy another as the staples would no longer go through 60 sheets of paper. So I bought a new stapler. Still was having the same problem. Nope its the staples themselves. Not as strong as they used to be. Barely go through 50 sheets of paper.

          I bought this thinking it would be an affordable high capacity stapler to use. It has never been any good at stapling large amounts of paper even though it claims to have a 70 sheet capacity. I'm using the staples it says to use. Complete waste of Money.

              This is the 2nd hi-capacity stapler I purchased, this time based on the favorable reviews. Unfortunately it's no better than the first one. BROKE the 2ND time I used it.
