I received a free sample of this stapler in exchange for my honest review. The Optima Compact Desktop has been a great addition to my desk tools. Overall I love this product. It is very durable and lightweight. So far with constant daily use it has not had a jam or issue nor does it show any signs of wear. In fact, while I use this product primarily for work, my children ages 3 to 12 have used it on occasion and have had no trouble. It is easy enough for every member of our family to staple with no effort. I have regularly stapled 15 sheets of paper or more and this stapler has done a fine job with no effort on my part. In my opinion this stapler makes a nice addition for office work, student work or just everyday stapling needs. I am very happy with this stapler.

I purchased this stapler on 9/24/2014 and have nothing but problems with it from the time I purchased it. Upon opening it a spring popped off - I was able to put it back together. It works fine for stapeling 2-4 sheets of paper, however anything beyond that it does not work well and jams. Now, it will not staple more than 2 sheets of paper at a time - no matter what.

Great Addition to my Office

By AJennings68

Comments about Swingline Jam-free Compact Stapler:

I received this product as a free sample in exchange for agreeing to write a review. The Optima 40 Compact Desktop Stapler appears to so far be a pretty good product. I believe I will have to use it a little while longer to be totally sure of it's capabilities. I do love the ergonomic design. It makes it super easy to handle and work with. It does appear to be very durable. I have not had any jams so far and I have been using it quite a bit. So far it is living up to it's expectations! I would definitely recommend to others.

Very sturdy. Holds up to rugged everyday use. Excellent Customer service

By PharmacistJodi

Comments about Swingline Jam-free Compact Stapler:

This stapler sees a lot of action at my workplace and it always performs reliably. I joke that this single device has decreased my work stress immeasurably due to the fact that I don't need to waste my precious time with stapler jams and other issues pertaining to sub-par staplers. This item is a gem and I am thankful for it.

unreliable

Comments about Swingline Jam-free Compact Stapler:

Stapler only works about half the time. Jams with recommended staples and is usueless with high volume staples on less than 30 sheets.

Tried three Optimas with regrets

By Elizabeth7

from Brampton

Comments about Swingline Jam-free Compact Stapler:

Two of them when you push down on the stapler, the top section will not come back up without pulling it by hand. The correct staples are installed . On the third stapler the top section fell off and the staple holder is stuck and will not come down. I have already returned one unit to the company in Brampton.

This product does not work as anything more than a paper weight.

By gjohnson417

from Osseo, MN, USA

Comments about Swingline Jam-free Compact Stapler:

We had purchased 4 Swingline Optimas Model #8784x for our business. We spend more time trying to get our pages stapled as these spit out staples that do not close or they crimp up in the middle and barely close on the bottom (it does this even with 2 or 3 sheets). Very dissatisfied.

Cartridge Comparison Guide
  • Cartridge Types
  • Ink & Toner Basics
  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
Cartridge Type
Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
Material Liquid ink Dry powder
How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
