The product is different looking, and this is the strength of the product. My stapler was getting lost in the office every time, so I found this different looking stapler as one of the best choice. The product is sturdy and good operating. I does not regret for this purchase.
It works mostly. Very often the staples get stuck. Once the stapler jammed shut due to a stuck staple, and I had to pry it open with a screw driver. Probably worth paying a little more and getting a better quality product than this.
