This stapler is a sharp looking addition to my desk and not to mention it is an amazingly useful tool. First to catch my eye was the great pop of orange and then the sleek design. As I looked at the package I noticed that it stated with the use of Optima staples provided that I could easily staple 40 pages and I instantly scoffed at this idea. 40 pages, no way! So, I naturally put it to the test and it sure went through those 40 pages just as easy as it did 2 pages and they stuck! I was amazed! Though this stapler requires a bit of effort for just two pages the fact that the same amount of effort could go through forty pages was amazing! I look forward to putting this stapler to work for a long time coming! Please take note that I received this item as a free sample in return for my 100% honest review.

ok just purchased this Stapler for our church Finance office, lots to staple.... However, I have a few things to touch base with.... 1. The whole row of staples Do NoT Fit,... so I have two tiny pieces that I am sure will equal to a row when I finish off the tin. 2. I can not open the stapler to post items onto my Bulletin board. 3. For being compact, it is a heavy stapler. Not what it seems like it would be. Well ,.... I am just going to have to seehow it all works out after reading the not so positive reviews.... now I am not 100 % sure on my purchase.....

Reload Button Broke

By YuraNutt22

from Olympia, WA, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima 70 Desktop Stapler:

Third time I loaded staples in this unit, the reload button broke. I use about 50 staples per year. PER YEAR!. This is unacceptably poor quality. So long Swinglime.

Not what i expected from swingline

By leslie

from San Diego, CA, USA

Comments about Swingline Optima 70 Desktop Stapler:

Worked great until we needed to replace the staples. Pressed the black button, out popped the staple holder and that is it. The slide refused to latch. Now the stapler resides in the bottom of my trashcan awaiting its final resting place at the landfill.

Broke while overseas

By Jules

from Canadian in Baku, Azerbaijan

Comments about Swingline Optima 70 Desktop Stapler:

I purchased this stapler to bring overseas with me in my job as a school administrator because the country I work in does not have quality products. After about 5 months the staple tray broke and will not close. It's now unusable. I bought swingline because of their reputation but after this experience and having read the other reviews I guess that was a mistake. I wasted money and effort bringing this overseas for nothing.

      It is an awful stapler.
      At most, it will staple together a 30-35 page document -nowhere close to the touted 70 pages.

      Had it one week

      By cepirb

      from Kaycee, WY

      Comments about Swingline Optima 70 Desktop Stapler:

      The product was working great for one week and then the spring on the internal mechanism came off and now it wont work at all. I can not see a way to open it and fix it and no information on how to fix the problem. After reading the reviews I am asking myself why even purchased the top of the line stapler for one week of use. Not sure what to do now. I tried a electric swingline stapler and I returned it after one day of jamming up with the staples. A stapler should not be this time consuming to find one that works.

      Package Claims and Stapler are not the same

      By Tex148

      from Wylie, TX, USA

      Comments about Swingline Optima 70 Desktop Stapler:

      The package states you can get a "flat clinch" staple thus decrease volumes of paper; however, this stapler was somehow made without this feature so be marketed differently than it currently is stated. I will be returning product.

      Comments about Swingline Optima 70 Desktop Stapler:

      I purchased with the hope that this would be able to staple simple tasks. It worked well for a few months then stopped working. Do not buy this unit.

        I Love My Optima 40

        By Q303

        from Denver, CO, USA

        Comments about Swingline Optima 70 Desktop Stapler:

        I am an office manager and I have had my Optima 40 for over 2 years and I use it everyday. I handle the majority of my company's AR, invoices, sales orders and purchase orders, as well as audit our field team's time sheets, so I staple everywhere from 2 to 40 sheets regularly. After 2+ years the torque/compression spring finally broke. I sent a simple and tactful email to this site's customer care and they are sending me a replacement. I don't know why there are so many negative comments on here, because I have had a great experience with this stapler. 99% of my company's staplers are the Swingline brand and none of them have failed yet. Furthermore, I have purchased five Optima 40 staplers for my company (for those employees that do high-quantity stapling) and mine is the first to break. To be fair, mine is the oldest, but at least two others are not far behind.

        Too expensive to be replaced this often

        By Diedonner

        from Miami

        Comments about Swingline Optima 70 Desktop Stapler:

        We have gone through several of these in the office. They're great until they break, and that's it. I would say we subject them to "light" use, but still need to replace them about once every six months. For this price, this is a terrible value.

        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.
