Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by BumblebeeGeorge I should have relied on the reviews
I read the reviews before buying. despite seeing people having trouble with the powershot jamming, I bought this anyway, hoping to alleviate hand pain from the "old-fashioned" kind of stapler. Ironically, the instructions use the words "in the unlikely event of a jam." It tells you how to fix a jam, but I found it very difficult to fix, and the jam turned out to be highly likely indeed. I did succeed in fixing it 3 times (after much effort), but the fourth time it jammed, I couldn't get the screw back in, it was stuck and wouldn't go forward or backward. So the thing jammed 4 times on 3 rows of staples and within 30 minutes of total use, including the fixing time. It went back to home depot the next day and there was an easy no hassle return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by EJ253 Great staple gun
This thing is great. Works great one of the best staple guns out there if used correctly. As for the other reviews. If it jams put less staples in it at one time, do not over load it. If the staples don't go in all the way you are using the wrong staples try a shorter ones.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SECT Did not work like I had hoped
Bought this for a simple upholstery project and it is just too hard to make it work correctly. Unless you are holding it PERFECTLY level and still the staple will not go in flush. Pretty frustrating. I am going to try an electric one.
