Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kristi Doesn't last
We first purchased this product about 4 years ago. It lasted 3 years before it quit. When we bought the second one a year ago, we needed it immediately and this was the only one available. That one only lasted about a year. We only use it on average of once a month, so there is no reason for it to stop working.
I will buy a different brand next time.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Theotherquestionrevisited MAY be OK for the occassional user but...
I purchased this unit to replace a CH pin nailer that I foolishly loaned out and it lost its way home. Unfortunately for me, I used it for the staple function the first several uses (probably a couple thousand staples.) Its probably coincidence that I tried using it to drive pins after the warranty expired but that's when the issues started. It jammed every two or three pins. What an annoyance!! Shoots staples fine but it even jammed with the pins it came with!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hendi Maybe good for something??
Bought this as it looked like a cheap way to squeak by with as little finish work as I do (I am a framing contractor with very little finish work on the side) but boy was i mistaken. First off the tool wont shoot anything bigger than 1 1/4" which is just about useless in it of itself but then when you add in the miss-feeds and jams. I ended up buying 2 different guns one to shoot brads and one to shoot staples. and gave this gun to one of my friends that is the diy type.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wiggiescat Box had been opened. Gun will not countersink brads
After adjusting the gun as deep as it will go, and increasing air pressure to 90 PSI it still sets brads above the surface or even with the oak I use. I produce furniture quality wood projects. This gun is worthless to me. It might work for bird houses or for staples only (don,t know) but no cabinet maker can use this product. I will return it to Home Depot. This was a wasted 30 mile trip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tjr9 Great Buy!
I have to admit I was a little hesitant purchasing the cheapest finish nailer in the store (I also bought a very cheap compressor too) to add crown molding to my kitchen cabinets. But I was very surprised at how well the nail gun works. I even used it to put up some door trim, repair a couch (with the staples), and put up baseboard. I have never owned a finish nailer, but this thing has never misfired once, and almost always drove the nail to the appropriate depth - even into solid oak cabinets! I could not have been happier. The gun also seems pretty sturdy - it would surely suffer damage if you tossed it around, but what air tool wouldn't? I highly recommend this nail gun, especially for the price - it works great with the staples too. The only negative I can say is that the longest nail it will shoot is 1 1/4. I would have liked to maybe get some 1 1/2 or 2" nails, but it works fantastic and I can't complain for the price!

I've put 6,000 staples through this stapler so far (pool table felt, a bonus room full of kraft paper backed insulation to studs, and now 1/4 lauan underlayment). The stapler has only jammed 1 time. The tool does misfire, but I think a lot of that has to do with the speed I try to operate it at.

One fourth the price of a duo-fast crown stapler. Drives in crown staples in 1-1/4" but you have to hammer the tops in to make them flush. That is it drives them in but doesn't countersink them into the wood. Definitely works but you need a hammer and a punch.
