Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mikejeep Not a great product.
Stapler requires a LOT more force than one would expect. Misfires/jams approximately 25% of the time, and fail to go all the way into the wood nearly as often, leaving you with a 50/50 shot of a successful staple. I thought it was expensive when I bought it, now that I used it for one project I think it is a waste of money. I'd rather pay more and get a working product. I wish I read these reviews before purchasing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SibcoElectric Not an everyday, any job tool but..
Cant stress enough the fact that user manual should be read before you attempt to use the stapler.
This is not perfect, but it isnt that bad. Wont replace a hammer and staple method. However, comes in usefull wile crawling under floor or in attic. Also good for small odds and ends.
Quality of a tool is not all that good. Design is also poor to fair. But since this is only one of its kind available to me, i have it and glad i do.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dropkick 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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Butterroll I had a different experience than the other people
I FINALLY got the job done. I was using the 5/8" (blue) staples and lost about 20% due to misfires. It's ashamed because the staples are about 3 cents apiece. The staples will only go in all the way on the very softest of woods. The staples will only go in about 1/2 way in in red pine. The staples will just barely go in to laminated beams. The stapler would not fire with the head up side down. The gun is fairly expensive and the staples are WAY expensive for the results I got. When the stapler worked it looked very professional. I am not a professional I was just installing CAT6 into my new house. I used about 600 staples in about 1 month's time.

It stopped shooting staple with less than 70 shots. Its flemesy and feels weak.

It started like a champion with some misfires I over looked from excitement. Now it fires two staples 9 out of 10 and jams every other one. I ended up beating it to point of no return with no regrets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by olddoitmyselfer This is the answer to a frustrating job
I know some have trouble making it work. I had no trouble as long has i held it firmly on the wood. I had a small job that required about 3 dozen staples. (I have a bum finger on one hand and tremors. So hammering the small staples in a confined space is tough) But this worked so well I was looking for things to fasten

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wise1one Good item for the project
Able to get in places where using a hammer would have been impossible. Used about 150 staples and had 3 misfires that I think were more of my fault than the units.
