I have used the same unit for over 5 years for both home and work. I have used product to repair semi-trailer doors and to do other light to medium duty work in the truck; more often temp repair until full repairs could be affected at a shop. At home I have tacked down peeling linoleum flooring in the laundry room, secure thin electronic component wires to baseboards, tack down stencils for paint applications on wooden furniture as well as drywall.

Being able to put my own weight behind the staple allows this to remain lightweight w/o having to sacrifice power. I provide the power, it provides the expulsion. It also, in my mind, allows for greater control and precision in placing the staple precisely where I want it. The guide that allows for raised applications made securing wire easy w/o fear of stapling through to the bare wire and ruining the wires.

I seldom use the brad nail option because I seldom have need of them. However, when the need arises, it is nice to have it available and not have to pound 2-3 dozen brads by hand.

My only ding is the overwhelming size. It is difficult if not impossible at times to use in tight spaces or stapling from odd positions where I cannot get leverage on the unit, in which case the traditional format is better suited.

Used it three times ... out of the box, it would staple only with difficulty; today, it quit working entirely. I squeeze the handle completely without any stapling ... I release the handle and the staple falls out like the bullet out of a cartoon gun. I end up cursing like Yosemite Sam and slammed it to the concrete floor of my garage with all my might ... picture is included below. It is sturdy, no doubt; too bad it won't staple. I'll never own another one...
The Model 8000 was not a gift, and I have not been compensated for writing this review...

      For some reason the stapler won't fire on the first try. But it does fire on the second try--but with two staples at once.
      And, yes, I'm strong enough to get it to go

                  This version is so much better than the lower priced model. I used it to staple heavy fabric to a hard piece of wood. I already had the cheaper model, which wasn't working. I ran to the store and grabbed this one - what a difference! It worked so well!

                          I do not have much strength in my hands so I needed two hands to staple with my T-50 making the task difficult. No with the T50ACD I am able to staple with one hand and the other one is free to hold what I am stapling.

                          I hate to be sour but I bought this stapler thinking it would be a great choice for me. It jams almost every time. It is now in pieces on my counter. I tried to follow the assembly instructions to put it back together but I guess I'm not strong enough to accomplish this. So much for the project I had planned for today.

                                  I bought this product because I saw it to be rugged and it was made in the USA. Well, rugged it's not, you can't go through a clip of staples without it jamming up several times (staples used Power Shot Heavy Duty Staples item #97006). In the last jam up (4th staple clip) I heard a loud snap from inside the stapler and the handle lost it's tension to reload, being it was useless, I took it apart only to find that a plastic part fell out in two pieces when I separated the two halves. The inside looks raw and unfinished like the stuff you get from China with a Made in USA label. Don't waste your hard earned money on this product.

                                      I bought this stapler on the recommendation of an upholsterer and used it to recover four dining room chairs. No jams, no issues, lots of power using 1/4" staples in plywood. I was able to pull the fabric tight with one hand while stapling with the other hand. So glad I bought it.

                                              I purchased my first Power Shot 5700 3-4 years ago, and used it to apply fabric to the back of seat cushions, After putting in about 10 staples it jammed. I removed the staple holder and cleared the jam, the handle was stuck down making the screw very difficult to remove. Shot two staples and it jammed again. After this happening several more times I returned it for a new one. I had the same problem with jams several more times. I completed the job with my old standard stapler, and returned the 5700. I had a friend buy me a new 5700 as a gift which I kept without using it for several months. I tried using the new one and had it jam after two (2) staples, cleared it to have it jam after one (1) use, cleared it only to have it jam on the next staple.
                                              I like the design but having to spend more time clearing jams than using it makes the 5700 not worth the effort. Arrow should seriously research this problem and fix it.

                                                  I have owned several different brands of similar electric staplers. So far this one is the best. Seems easier to staple on awkward surfaces than Bosh i owned last.

                                                      I bought the T50HS for attaching fabric to seats. The base is made of particle board and the 1/2 inch staples wont not go flush without additional hammering of the staple. We then used it to put up garland on a treated 4 x4 on a sign and it worked great. I guess the 3/4 inch particle board was too dense for it to fully penetrate. The handle and ease of compression made it a nice stapler to use overall and will find other uses in softer wood.

                                                              Great concept but poorly made. Brought it home after purchase and sliced open the packaging. First thing I did was to put it on a work table. when i picked it up to put staples in it I noticed a black screw on the table. looking at the stapler I found the place it came from. Got my screw driver and attempted to screw it back in but the hole was stripped out. Checked the other screws and found that only two were not striped put of 4. Put in my first strip of staples and tried a test shot into a piece of plywood. Stapler fired more easily than my old one with the handle pressure on the back. Great but no staple. Fired it several times but no staple. Took the silver screw out to release the staple holder. No jam, no debris, no foreign objects. Put it back to together for another trial and got a staple in the wood. Super, so I began using it and 3 staples later it stopped working, Took it apart again, and again nothing to prevent staples from moving forward. but it never fired another staple in spite of several attempts. Great idea if it would only work. got an old fashioned style one and am happily firing staples without a hitch and not a single misfire. I will never buy another one of these power shot staplers.

                                                                  I have owned a standard style Arrow stapler for decades. It always worked great, but the design, where the pressure applied to the lever is at the back of the gun while the staple fires from the front, often resulted in staples that did not fully seat. So I thought I would "modernize" to the PowerShot where the pressure applied is directly over the staple. It worked perfectly, much better than the old style stapler - for about a dozen staples. Then it jammed. So I took out the cartridge per a YouTube tutorial and cleared the jam. It worked fine again - for about a dozen more staples. After repeating this exercise several times, I am taking a break to recover from my frustration and write this review to warn others. And before you ask, yes, I am using Arrow brad T-50 8mm staples. I am going back to work now, using my old gun.

This one solves that problem. Time will tell about its durability, but so far it works fine for the uses for which I imagined it would be useful.

The other two did as well, but they lasted at least two months. I know that I won't purchase this staple gun ever again and to think I thought I had just bought "lemons" so to speak. I feel like that Arrow Fastener needs to know this. By the way, the replacement you sent me was from the 2nd one that stopped working. I have to say that this is very sad.

It does the work I don't have to have brute strength to use it just apply the pressure. The manual ones had to be held down with pressure and you had to pull the trigger at the same time...which was difficult for me.
