I purchased the stapler from local WHSmith store for £9.99. Although they had cheaper staplers available I didn't want anything too cheap that would break after a few times of using it. The money was coming out of work expenses anyway so I wasn't personally buying it, but I would be the main person using it. The stapler comes in one colour which is black and comes in a clear plastic box. The stapler is made from strong plastic and metal and has WHSmith in white one side of the stapler. The stapler comes pre-loaded with staplers but I decided to purchase some more anyway as the staples were on offer at the time.
When taking the stapler out of the box it was light but felt and looked as though it was quite strong. The black plastic the stapler was made from was shiny and caught the light a little. I would be using the stapler every-day at work so I hoped that it would be strong enough to last for quite a long time. As the stapler was loaded already I didn't need to put the staples in myself until the current ones had run out. When stapling the first lot of papers (about 5 sheets), I placed the paper in the stapler and then shut the stapler down firmly. You can hear a click like sound as the stapler puts a staple through the paper and secures all the paper together.
The stapler is very easy to refill by gently but firmly pulling the top of the stapler to reveal the part where the staple sit in. I then took a strip of staples and placed them in and gently closed the top again. The stapler was now ready to use again and worked as normal. I probably wouldn't staple anything more than 6-7 pieces of paper as I don't think the stapler would go through this much paper very well.
I have had the stapler for well over 1 and a half years and it still works perfectly and hasn't broken. I haven't had any other troubles with it either such as staples getting stuck in it which can stop the staplers from actually working. Although the stapler cost me £9.99, I don't think this was a bad price as it has lasted a long time and works really well. The stapler has also lasted a lot longer than I thought it would. Eventually when this stapler does break (if it does), I will be sure to purchase another one of these.
You can currently buy 2000 staples for the stapler for just £4.99 which is good value as they are normally priced £6.45 so you save £1.46.
I give the Stapler 5 out of 5 stars for such fantastic quality.
Summary: WHSmith black stapler.
