Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JoeXavier2 Better than stapling manually
I have been satisfied with the gun. I use it to tack up vapor barrier and tarp to wood. I do find that you do need to put some weight into the gun to reduce the kick back otherwise the staples do not go in fully. I find that there may be 1 staple that jams every 50-100 staples. That is okay compared to the effort of using a manual stapler.
Liked: the product feels solid.
Do not like: the safety button which I always seem to nudge into the locked position when I am holding the gun with gloves on. I had trouble understanding the instructions to load staples at first, but eventually figured it out with a lot of fiddling around.
Not the most satisfying product I have purchased at Home Depot, but again way better than manual stapler.

My wife loves this stapler. The Arrow Professional Elec. Staple + Nail Gun is fantastic, it is easy to operate, easy to load and is accurate upon firing. We ere making a headboard and my wife wanted to upholster the center of the board. We were walking through Home Depot picking up the oak trim for the headboard and we saw the stapler. When we got it home and tried it, we were very impressed. The stapler was not only able to fire staples into the plywood backing, but was able to easily drive staples into the solid oak trim.
It fires T50 staples. I must mention that it will also fire a 5/8 brad nail, but I have not personally tried this function; I have air tools for that job.
One of those tools that surprised us when we got it home.
Good luck Ron

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by buttonq Jams constantly.
I bought this stapler with high hopes as it had very positive reviews. Unfortunately as soon as I started using it it jammed about every 10th staple. To make matters worse it is not easy to clear the jam as the nut/bolt mechanism that you have to remove does not easily come apart or doesnt come apart at all. I was very dissapointed and will be returning it. The stapler was easy to use when it doesn't jam.

very disappointed, kept jamming, had to take it apart to fix and that was also awkward with the nut screw mechanism, finally it would not feed staples at all, probably because i finally bent something in the guide taking it apart so many times.
ended up buying a model by a different manufacturer and so far no problems

This is a sturdy tool that makes nailing quick and easy. Sure beats hammering in individual nails when you're doing a big job! Works just as well with nails or staples.

Works great. Much easier for large stapling jobs ie: plastic vapour barrier.

I have owned this stapler now for 2 years and love it. I am a hobby woodworker so I don't use it everyday but, when I do, it doesn't disappoint.

This stapler gun has so many uses around the home. It worked great for re-upholstering my chair cushions.
