The double pocket at the back is great for tracking bills and receipts.\n\nI highly recommend this book for anyone who wants a very hands on approach to their personal budget.I have had this machine for 6 years now.I have bought a papermate, it didnt last a year.I relaced the Papermate with another P70CM CROSSCUT PAPER SHREDDER .\nYou wont be disapointed !I just purchased this in store for the online price. I opened it in the car & within 2 minutes I was able to enter my home address and I was off.This GPS talks to you so you can just look at the road.When you get close to a turn it speaks to you again.If you miss or take a different turn it immediately gives you directions back to your destination.You can save locations and find gas stations with one simple touch.I love this item and I WILL NEVER BE LOST AGAIN!!!!Purchased this chair about 4 months ago.The "leather" is already torn around the edge of the seat cushion from hitting the drawer on my desk - I have never had this problem with other chairs at the same desk.

I can't give this product a fair review because I didn't even have the opportunity to use it. It's broken and I can't fix it. I'm very disappointed and will not be purchasing products Swingline anymore. I really need a stapler for school work and I was looking forward to having a nice new stapler... very disappointed.

Jams too easily.

By Paul

from Toronto, ON, Canada

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

This so called stapler wasn't even a year old and it jammed over and over again. I tried to fix it and now it's completely useless. A piece of useless debris that I wouldn't recommend to my worst enemy.

Stapler was jammed before I even had a chance to use it.

By MrsJ

from Salt Lake City

Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

Being a school teacher, I need a reliable stapler. My last Swingline broke after using it for at least 6 years, so I figured it was time. My stapler arrived yesterday and I was excited to use it. However, upon loading the staples, it got jammed. The staples went askew at the back where the spring is located and it took about 30 minutes to fix it. Now the spring is stretched out in places and I'm unsure it's going to last very long. This is not an inexpensive stapler and I expected tighter quality. I definitely wouldn't recommend it.

    Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

    This product was shipped to me as the "improved" stapler from the original 66402 (much more classic design). I ordered from Staples and have left a similar review there.

    The biggest issue is that my office has a classic/traditional look and this was not at all the aesthetic choice I was going for when the original product had been so well-received and reviewed.

    All I got was a note inside the package saying that Swingline hoped I liked the new stapler versus what I had ordered.

    Nobody called to say what I ordered was no longer available.

    Nobody emailed to say what I had ordered was no longer available.

    Swingline duped me and Staples.

    I will never buy a Swingline product again.

    Not anywhere as good as the Swingline PowerEase

    By Hilda

    from Alberta, Canada

    Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

    I purchased this stapler thinking it was like the PowerEase Stapler, but it is not! The powerease is so much easier to use, softer on the hands and actually feels like its worth what I paid for it! This one is nowhere near as good! it feels cheap when you use it, and is not as soft on the hands, causing me pain each time. Plus it was expensive! What happened to the PowerEase? Please bring it back!

    BREAKS EASILY

    By Diane678

    from Blandon, PA

    Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

    I purchased two in one year. Both times, the spring on the inside of the stapler gets stretched out and the stapler will no longer work.

    Spring snapped out and became stiff

    By abbas

    from Mississauga, ON, Canada

    Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

    Ordered this product about 4 months ago and it was working very well up until today when the spring snapped out and it became very stiff. Tried putting it back but the spring would not push the staples forward, rendering this stapler useless. Do not get this stapler if you want one that will last!

    Expected more

    By KCL1

    from Atlanta, GA

    Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

    Based on the Swingline brand and the price I paid, I expected this stapler to last my teens through their high school years. Not quite. The spring popped on this thing some time ago and I can't find any help online for this particular model. It also doesn't appear that there is a manual for self repair. Where does that little spring go, anyway?

    Worked great for the first couple months...

    By Jon123

    Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

    The stapler worked great for the first couple months. However, now the top doesn't stay down and it only really works when it's full of staples.

    Awesome Customer Service

    By Sammy

    from Silicon Valley, CA, USA

    Comments about Swingline LightTouch Desktop Stapler:

    I wrote a bad review (now I feel real guilty), because 2 of my staplers went bad. They contacted me, responded promptly and replaced my bad ones. Shows how serious they are. I remember Microsoft asking me to send back my mice/keyboards that stopped working and once I did that, they never got back in touch or replaced them. I was sort of expecting something similar here but they responded to emails and replaced their product. Will keep buying Swingline as I think they are the best game in town. We have had some of their staplers literally for years and they just keep on working. Thanks, Sam

    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.
