Comments about Swingline� Optima� Desktop Stapler; Black:
Wow, nothing more annoying than the "Jam Free Guarantee" sticker staring you in the face each time you try to remove a jammed staple from a 3-page staple attempt. I bought the more expensive staples to go with this stapler to assure that it would work. Swingline is sending me a replacement- they responded within a swift two weeks of my contacting them through their customer service website. Hope the replacement works better than the original but not too optimistic.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
