I'm a lawyer, and frequently need to staple documents in the 15-35 page range. Larger than that, it gets bound or the heavy-duty stapler. But as a desk stapler, I needed this.
Staples 40 pages without a problem.
Staples flat, so no corner staple mountain in my binders.
Low effort, and solid outcome, whether on my desk or in my grip.
Doesn't seem to hold a full row of staples.
**Make sure you use Optimum staples, not regular ones, as the corners and cut-angles are different.

I bought it about 2 years ago, needing a stapler that could handle more than 2 pieces of paper, rigors of a road warrior! Bought it off the shelf, not knowing any reviews. It has handled the torture famously! Dropped, bounced, survived baggage handlers, a few standard staples. One or two not knowing to just push and not SLAM! It's seen it all, and kept on going.
It's gotten to the point that is pushing the staples in at the bottom of the stroke and having to push harder, I guess the 'gears' are wearing out. It's gone through a lot of staples, refill most every other day.
I will retire it to a leisurely home life, with little use. Heading to the store to find it's replacement today.
