Don't want to purchase if it is less than 1" for brad nails not staples.

Answer: 
Didn't use brads only staples. However, given my experience with staples and MDF, I'd suggest a different tool. It does depend on the material, e.g.: it might work with soft wood, like Pine.

Answer: 
If you're referring to laminate flooring, that type of floor is designed to "float" and should not be fastened down. Otherwise you'll end up with buckling or gaps due to seasonal expansion and contraction.

2-in-1 Electric Stapler and Strip Brad Nailer is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 154.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good tool Initially, I was quite concerned about this stapler...it would not drive a 3/8 inch staple all the way into a pine 2x4. However, after taking a break from my first session it putting up insulation, I plugged the tool into a 20 amp circuit, instead of into a 15 amp circuit at th end of a very long extension cord. The difference was significant...it successfully drove the staples all the way in.

I have trouble with my hands, no grip strength, so using the normal heavy duty stapler was not an option for me. I purchased this Stanley stapler and reupholstered a chair all by myself! This is lightweight and so easy to use and handle. You don't have to be able to open your hand wide to hold it and reach the trigger like you do on the manual staplers. This stapler is my new best friend and I can't wait to do many many more projects with it, MYSELF, without having to ask for help!!!

She just bought a new house and needed to make drapery cornices. I took it to her Thanksgiving and we got started. I bought an assortment of staples to go with it. I think we used the 5/8" staples to staple through 2 layers of fabric and 2 layers of lining to a board without any problem at all. The trick is to make sure the gun is flat against the wood or whatever you are stapling. We had no misfires, all of the staples went all the way in with one try and there was no jam. We made quick work and the drapery cornice came out perfect. She will also use to reupholster a chair and I know she will have no issues. Again.....it is all in the position the gun is in before you fire the staple. If you have a problem then just practice on something before starting your project. It had all the power I needed for this job. Very nice for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy so far I purchased this a few months ago since my old staple gun was jamming a lot. We have done so many renovations and so far no jamming.
Date published: 2016-09-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just a tip Some people complained that the sharpshooter stopped working for them. If your sharpshooter stops working altogether (before you trash it) open the stapler up and look at the area where the small black plate pushes out the staple. if you can see the plate, then it needs to be pushed back in where it is no longer visible. If it continues to hang up, a drop of WD-40 will get it sliding again. :) This happened to me and I thought the stapler was completely dead at first. I deducted a star because I have to tap in the staples a bit when stapling a very hard wood. But for thirty bucks, it is a good stapler for household projects.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stanley tre550 only good for crafts Bought stanley tre 550 to hang so lattice work on outside of house. I thought the fact it said "heavy duty" would be sufficient for the small job I had. Wrong. I thought I was doing something wrong and looked at youtube help videos. Realized maybe I wasn't pressing down hard enough. Wrong again. I put my full 200 lbs on the gun to hold it in place and again the staples went in hardly at all. Clearly the wood was too hard for this "heavy duty" stapler / brad gun. I will return it today.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great with proper use and maintenance. Have read many of the reviews and I want to not only post my review but to give users some tips. First if all when you staple make sure you hold the stapler tight against what you are stapling. If it is not tight it will not push the staples all the way in. Remember this is an electric stapler NOT a powerful nail gun. Found best results with 3/8" staples. It will staple easily into softer woods but some very dense hardwoods I would not use it in or be prepared to hammer in the staples. If it won't shoot out staples use some WD 40 on the moving parts which work. Have shot in over 5,000 staples with fairly good success.
