Rated 2 out of 5 by Friendly Boy 3000 OK for light duty work
I bought this to help with some temporary fixes to my shed roof. It probably wasn't the best tool for the job (the fact that only light duty staples were included should have given it away).
Seems fine if you want to staple together pieces of paper and card (maybe even fabric), but for anything else invest in a heavy duty gun.
Also, the mechanism for loading staples wasn't great - it seems to be poorly designed, so the staples end up floating around in the gun, not in the staple channel.
In the end I returned this product.

This does the job. Value for money. I wouldn't want to use for a big job as it pinches your hand. Fine for small jobs

Each time we tried to use this stapler it jammed or the staples just kept coming out. We took it back and got a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Snapper Light duty but you need a strong grip
Ideal for the odd job but you need a good grip to fire the staple gun over a longer period.
Re-upholstered an office chair in less than 15 minutes.
Well worth price and it's still working well though I now wear a glove to grip the stapler

Having already returned the value model for being completely useless at attaching fabric to my dining chair pads, this was not much better. The staples repeatedly jammed up, and were difficult to clear. When staples did come out, they often bent up or only half penetrated. I appreciate that this is a light duty gun, but I didn't feel that this was a particularly heavy duty task. It should make it much clearer on the packaging what this will and won't be capable of.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kebby great value for money
did exactly what it said on the packet. Great value for money and suited the purpose it was purchased for. Lent it to my mum for other duties and was more than adequate for the job.
