Advantages: Strong looks, reliability and weightiness - quality feel
Disadvantages: Price point, lack of features, small capacity of sheets and staples.
Okay, staplers, not the most interesting product out there but for thoise of us who have a desk it is one of those products that you invariably find yourself using day in, day out.
A sleek metallic dull silver is the best I can manage on description. The unit itself is all made of metal and is not unnatractive to look at. The dimpling on the top is designed to give a non slip usage but also offers some aesthetic pleasure. Product brand and model number is included in a dark grey that contrasts well.
It does what it say on the tin. A 20 sheet maximum capacity proved to be about correct (it struggled through 23) and the staple receptacle is reversible so your staples can be bent inwards or outwards. Every day usage is easy and free flowing with a pop out top loading cassette that has an, at best, average capacity. The unit is heavy ad is not designed to be used in a hand held manner but clearly should be left on the desk.
At approximately £18 I find this to be expensive given it's lack of features that you would expect from this price range.
For the price I would like to see a larger cassette capacity or a greater maximum sheet ability. However what it does it does well and to date it has been reliable. I can't help but feel I could get similar performance from one at half the price. If aesthetics are your thing then yes - this unit looks decent, if it is features that you are after look elsewhere!
Summary: Overpriced for the feature set available.
