Nice powerful staplerFeb 21, 2009
By Sun P. Kwok
This is my second Stanley Bostitch power stapler. I've taken a lot of ribbing from my co-workers about not using a regular stapler, but they are not the ones doing all of the paperwork for the company and the ability to staple one handed is invaluable. My first stapler was a 2-20 page unit that has worked well for years. I decided to upgrade and take the first unit home so I can do work at home more effectively too.
The new unit is very powerful, about as loud as the first one (which I actually like, I like to know something has been STAPLED and not gently caressed with a piece of metal which may or may not have actually bonded the pages together). In fact, it is so powerful, if I only have 2 sheets to staple my 1/4" staples tend to punch right through the first page almost entirely! I talked to tech support who mentioned in their delightful Massachusetts accent that I should use 3/8" staples for less than 20 pages and 1/4" for 20-40 pages. Not wanting to have to switch staples whenever I use the unit, I stuck with the original 1/4" staples. Face it, I'm lazy, that's why I got a power stapler to begin with. . Other than the over penetration issue with a mere 2 pages (and not enough to badly affect how the staple holds the paper), an excellent unit.

Works nicely but really loudAug 28, 2010
By Melissa B
I bought this stapler for my home office. I often work until 1 AM here. The problem is that our bird room is next door and they're sleeping ( could be your kids too ) and this thing is pretty loud. It sounds like a hammering sound when you use it. I didn't know that these could be this loud, I'd seen someone else using an electric before and it was very quiet, so I just assumed they all were. Not true apparently. But it works fine, so if it doesn't matter, for example if you're in a regular 9-5 office, this could even help you sound busy and industrious, I suppose. I just wouldn't recommend it for a home office where you work late at night and someone may be sleeping nearby.

I love this product. I am a teacher and use this stapler several hundred times each week. I have never had a problem with it. My fifth grade students use it with ease as well.

Boom!Jan 20, 2012
By J. Edgar Mihelic
You need something stapled, you just slip it in the slot and BOOM!
People in your office, and down the hall and down the street know that you have stapled something. This is no sissy stapler, this a strong stapler that will quickly and securely tack together a big stack of papers.
Two things though:
1) if you have a short stack, the stapler is sometimes too powerful. It is made for bigger stacks, so instead of neatly stapling two sheets together, you have a stable-sized hole in your paper.
2) You need proprietary staples, so you can't just use any staples, you have to buy the special staples. I had to wait while the staples were on order at my office. Not a huge thing, and the waiting was my fault, but it was annoying.
