One way you can check quality is by checking the people who use the object. In this case offices worldwide, and particularly Banks in my own experience.
My grandmother worked for a bank, and I remember going to visit her (and playing with the stapler on her desk). Today I work for a bank, and it was part of what ended up on my desk when I got here.
You can't go wrong with this stapler. It has solid construction, rarely jams, and is used by companies that like to save money.
This stapler will amaze you at how well it works. Just gently pull open the top cover of the "drawer" where the staples will be stored until you use them and then insert the staples. In addition, this Swingline stapler is manufactured in such a way as to make it difficult for two staples to come out at the same time. That way you get one clean through staple for your documents with no mess. It's all very clean cut.
Obviously, if you need to staple huge bundles of paper at a time, this stapler might not be up to such an extreme challenge. People usually have a pretty intuitive feel for how many pages of paper can be stapled by this. They say it can staple up to twenty sheets of paper; but if your paper is very "heavy" (or, thick) than it might be able to staple something more like 15 or 16 pages of paper.
Overall, this is a very well made stapler that will easily last you years. The staples that go with the staples are just as nicely priced as this stapler itself. I highly recommend this stapler by Swingline for your home office and general purpose needs.
The Swingline Commercial Desk Stapler (S7044401A) has a name and- ID number?- literally longer than that of the USS West Virginia. It is the most solid stapler I've ever encountered, being made almost entirely of metal. It holds... a lotta staples. Don't know how many. But jams are infrequent and the design works superbly. Sitting on a desk, it does its job well. But the bottom can be swung out, allowing one to staple things to a wall or ceiling as well. It isn't the flashiest of staplers- just as the Ford Mondeo is not the flashiest of cars- but like the Mondeo it is a proven design that always, always gets the job done. If you're a manager, there's no better or more handy a device to wield when seeking to motivate subordinate employees.
