Customer Reviews for Swingline Portable Electric Stapler 20-sheet Black SWI 48200
Review 1 for Swingline Portable Electric Stapler 20-sheet Black SWI 48200
Date:March 22, 2013
Pros: extremely easy to use and set up, takes up no more space than a manual stapler, quiet, battery operated... a very good plus.
Model Number: SWI 48200
"I've never owned an electric stapler but was tired of manual staplers constantly jamming and flatening out the staples. I've had several different brands of manual staplers. Most worked OK (still had problems, but worked OK) but a lot didn't. So I decided to try an electric.
I haven't had this Swingline portable very long and haven't used it a lot yet, but so far it's the best stapler I've ever used. The price was very good for what I got. It staples several papers together better than any manual stapler ever did for two papers. Very good purchase on my part for a change!"

Review 2 for Swingline Portable Electric Stapler 20-sheet Black SWI 48200
Pros: very convenient size, empty staple indicator lught, battery operation, included a/c adapter, reasonably quiet operation, holds a full rack of staples
Cons: a little pricey
Model Number: Swingline Portable Elevtric Stapler (Black)
"Had one of these at my office and wanted one for home. Fortunately, found it on COSTCO.com. It worked very reliably at the office and so far (had it only a week or so), it seems to be working very well at home as well..
Holds a full rack of staples and even has an indicator light on top that is red when the stapler is plugged in (we prefer to use the included a/c adapter rather than batteries) and flashes when staples are running low (very helpful feature!).
It is also not too loud and has a convenient control for adjusting how far into a margin you would like the staple to go.
Even if a little pricey, it seems to be a good purchase."

Review 3 for Swingline Portable Electric Stapler 20-sheet Black SWI 48200
Date:November 21, 2011
Good, solid stapler
Pros: adjustable staple depth, long battery life
Model Number: 48200
"Everybody in our office uses one of these, and we're very happy with them. We've had the rare jam, but I'd like to emphasize the "rare" here. Usually our jams are from trying to staple too many sheets or stapling over a staple.
Also, the adjustable staple depth is nice to have - you can adjust from 0.25" to 1.75" without a hitch. Sometimes the adjustment bar moves on its own when you use it, though."

Review 4 for Swingline Portable Electric Stapler 20-sheet Black SWI 48200
Location:Las Vegas, NV

Don't bother purchasing
Cons: jammed when i first used it. it never worked.
"I purchased this to replace another Swingline (and more expensive) electric stapler that died on me. I'm just looking for a reasonably-priced electric stapler that WORKS and DOESN'T JAM. Well, right out of the box, and plugged in, it jammed on my first use. I could not even unjam it. It was clearly defective. I returned it to Costco, which is great about returns, and immediately purchased a different make/model electric stapler which I have been satisfied with so far."
