Answer: 
It is intended for Romex. However, It is a frustrating device to load, keep loaded, and to use. It misfires as much as it fires properly. I have a whole lot of tools, and I can say this is the one I've cursed at the most. I bought two of these, and they both had the same problems.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Keep the stapler flat and it works fine I've driven lots of staples and the only misfire was when I positioned the stapler at a slight angle. Hold the stapler firmly, position it flat on the wire, and you may get the excellent results that I've had. As with any stapler, hard wood may require more pressure than pine. I also own a cable stapler from another manufacturer, but I definitely prefer the Cable Boss. May 22, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 1 staple out of 15 goes in Ive bought thousands of dollars worth of Machinery from Home Depot and this is only the second item that I've ever taken back. I was really disappointed with it and I almost didn't buy it because of the reviews, but I gave them the benefit of doubt. I returned it about 2 weeks after I got it opened package and they took it back without any question. There's a mechanism in the handle that doesn't make any sense and should be redesigned so it can work better. March 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Bother! As a remodeling contractor, I find it sad to say, don't bother purchasing and giving this tool a try. More often than not this GB staple gun won’t even come close to pushing the staple's nails into framing lumber. Especially if the framing is solid, old dry wood as found the attics of in most homes that require remodeling. The nails on the GB cable staples are quite soft and bend easily when attempting to finish up the nailing with a hammer. Additionally, the staple gun is very difficult to pull and use with only one hand and easily jams and wastes staples. Use of this tool is difficult and tends to take more time than traditional hammer in style cable fasteners. Say - isn’t that why you wanted a staple gun in the first place as it is “supposed” to save time, and make the work a little easier! March 4, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So Much Easier than nailing in Staples Saw this in the store while I was buying supplies for a major house rewiring. Took it home without checking the reviews. Was concerned that I had a lemon with all the misfire reports, but tried it anyway. Stapler worked very well when used according to the instructions and the design. Specs say 55 lbs. of force is required on the head of the gun to set the staples properly, and when that was the case, it drives well. They have also designed a second hand grip for two handed operation which also helps by keeping the stapler fixed over the wire when 'shot'. The only misfires I had was when I tried to do these one handed and unable to get the correct down-force. I WILL be using to go back over all the NM I have laid so far and finish the stapling.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Absolute garbage. A nightmare to use. About 8/10 times the staple does not enter correctly or does not enter the wood at all. When it does, you have to go back with a hammer. Worst part is that the handles has a large travel and at the ratchet point needs a lot of force. This means one handed operation is almost impossible. When using two handed, the grip is in the wrong place. Absolutely useless product. Gonna return it tomorrow. February 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fair The unit works well with pine wood, but does not work well with oak or hard wood. The position for the wire location is also a problem some of the wire got hit with the staples we were installing telephone will as well as cat-5 January 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by garbage product doesn't enter any surface correctly. complete waste of money and time if I got to go behind it and hammer. December 30, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Underpowered, hard to use, impossible to see I used to laugh when my electrician called their stuff Garbage Bender, but here it's true. This thing is totally underpowered. I have yet to find anything it will actually drive the staple into except maybe drywall and why would you do that? 3/4" plywood backboard? Forget it! It takes far too much force on the handle to fire. There is so much plastic bulk around the head and the staple is set so far back in the unit you can't see what you're doing. Don't waste your time unless you plan on stapling things to styrofoam. Total waste of money. Stay with the T50's. Even the old round metal T25 are far better; so what if you have to back off to not overpenetrate and crush wire at times... at least they actually go into wood and you can see what you're doing, control where the staples goes, and pay much less.
