Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product should be removed from line My new office space came with the Swingline 45 on the desk- thought that was great until I tried using it. After many frustrating attempts to get it working properly I came on here to see if I could troubleshoot the problem. Apparently the fact that it staples, but does not release the paper unless unplugged and plugged back in is a design flaw (according to what I'm reading). DO NOT BUY THIS MODEL It's sad as Swingline has always been the #1 stapler brand in my experience and this is a poor reflection on the quality of their usual products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We're on our 5th one... It's a good thing that Swingline has a good warranty on these staplers, since they just keep sending us a new one every time it breaks. We ordered one of the older style Swingline 45 staplers a few years ago and loved it. The spring broke, so the new version of the Swingline 45 was sent to us. It's horribly loud and almost sounds like a gunshot, which isn't a great thing when you work at a sheriff's office. Each stapler works well for a month or two, then starts developing issues. The latest one just died today. You know it's a bad product when we have a "stapler life expectancy" date pool going for it...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY I had the old optima 45 and absolutely loved it. I bought it because of the 1/4" staples that it took. The redesigned product is terrible. It takes 3/8 " that do not lie flat on the back of stapled papers. It also sounds like a gun being shot, which is not ideal working in a quiet office. I will be looking elsewhere for my staplers from now on, if Swingline cannot go back to what the consumers want. I would have rated a 0 had I been able to.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work. I am using only the recommended staples on this product. 3/8" Swingline Optima High Capacity Staples. Model 3550. However, the staples do not close completely it there are only a few sheets of paper. As mentioned in other reviews, it is also very loud. A very expensive item with too many limitations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from no great features the stapler has jammed is no longer in working order. I've heard from other numerous business associates that they have had similar failures.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Glad I didn't pay anything close to the web site price for this! Worked for 5 weeks and then stopped....not jammed, just doesn't do anything....

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not the same quality as older version I have had an older version of this stapler for several years and have never had a problem with it. I relocated within the office and felt obliged to leave the old one in its same location since others had grown fond of it as well. We ordered a brand new one for my new location and was shocked at the quality. It is so loud and does not staple correctly and is almost 2 inches shorter in length than my old one. In looking at the reviews, it appears that most are disappointed with the newer versions of several models. Do you have any old versions left?
