Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by UNHAPPYCAMPER sorry to say but PURE JUNK
BY APPEARANCES THE UNIT WAS APPEALING, BUT SOON AFTER WE LOADED OUR FIRST RUN OF STAPLES I REALIZED THAT I HAD MADE A MISTAKE IN PURCHASING A "LESS EXPENSIVE" GUN. FIRST THE SLIDE WOULDNT CLOSE, THEN JAM AFTER JAM AFTER JAM AFTER JAM. NEEDLESS TO SAY MY PATIENCE RAN OUT AND BACK TO THE STORE I WENT TO EXCHANGE FOR A DE******T. SORRY ARROW, ALL IN ALL YOUR PRODUCTS ARE GREAT, IM NOT TRYING TO BLAST YOU OR YOUR OTHER PRODUCTS, BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wings51 Dang good product.
Staple gun is easy to operate with effective penetration. Loading staples slightly difficult. Low cost. Good for construction as well as craft projects.

I received this as a gift a couple years ago. I used it a couple times and seemed to work just fine. This week I pulled it out to attach insulation to 15 by 24 inch doors for my kennel business. I got through about two strips of staples when it just stopped firing. I was using Arrow staples so no problems with another company product. When pressing down the light would light, you could hear a click but nothing else. I contacted customer service. They informed me that I needed to show proof of purchase to prove I was the original owner. I said I received it as a gift. That was it, no repair. So I went ahead and got the T30 tool bit with the raised center and took the unit apart to see if I could fix it. Once I opened it, about 10 pieces of broken plastic fell out. Appears there is a 1/4 inch plastic disk in the little compressor part that shattered. Why the heck you would use a plastic disk at the spot where a large amount of force is applied to drive a staple, I wouldn't know. I don't know about the other Arrow staplers, but this one is poorly designed. And the Warranty is just not that great.

Received this as a gift for Christmas. Finally had the opportunity to use this product to attach plastic corner bead to a simple drywall corner. Read instructions, installed staples, staples barely fired. Re-read instructions, re-installed staples, nothing fired. The few staples used, which were 3/8", were not even able to penetrate to be flush with the drywall. Would love to have this replaced by the manufacturer. I see these complaints over and over - jamming or failing to fire.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by eah51 Works well in most cases
I needed a staple gun that was less stressful on my hands to operate. The manual ones are hard for me to use for long periods of time. The electric one was a better option than a battery powered model for a couple of reasons. The cost was much less for the electric one and there are more sizes of staples available as well. The only complaint I have about it is the bulky size of the gun makes it hard to get into tight spaces. So I kept the manual stapler handy for those circumstances. A bonus feature of this staple gun is that it uses the standard sizes of staples that work in my other hand staplers.

I used the correct staples. I loaded them without problem. The gun fired no staple. reloaded. fired. no staple. I read everything, double checked the staples. reloaded. fired. no staple. over and over.
I was as if there was nothing pushing the staples.
A waste of time and money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jp1979 worst design ever
Bought this piece of junk because my old standby stapler was cramping my arthritic hands. Thought I'd save time and my hands. But I was wrong.
Let me list the awful design features...
1. LED light only turns on once the staple has been fired. Not sure why this component was needed. After the fact visualization that the stapler didn't work?
2. LED light mounted above staple gun, so you need about 3" clearance to what your firing into. Don't bother trying to reach a corner here.
3. Staples won't penetrate 2x lumber consistently, even at highest power. Be prepared to follow around with a hammer wherever you use this stapler.
Massive FAIL on all design criteria for this thing. Not worth the money.

I bought this stapler after my 10 year old one quit. I had an inspector coming the next morning and was under the GUN to get the vapor barrier completed. What a disappointment. The thing didn't last long enough to drive what was left of a box of staples. The slide mechanism that holds the staples in came flying out the back and left me looking for the spring, roller, and all the hardware that feeds the staples. Looks like the spot weld on the end gave up. Needless to say, it is going back. Not to mention, the LED is Joke and the safety at the nose is annoying. I hated this thing from the minute I tried to drive the first staple, or tried to. I don't feel bad about taking this back when it showed it rue colors.
