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...

          Comments about PORTER-CABLE PowerShot® Stapler (5700):

          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.

          Great Design - If It Worked

              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.

                  With a manual stapler, I often had difficulty getting enough leverage to make it work in cramped quarters and when one needs one hand to hold on while using the tool. 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.

                      I have owned three of the power shot and one of them was just sent to me by your company and within three days, it quit working. 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. This is just an FYI...

                          I have used many staple guns and this is the first electric one, I love it! 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. This model is awesome

                              I have used power staplers in the past (Arrow) and they have broken before I got a fair amount of use. This newer and cordless model has worked well so far. The cordless feature is a real positive. It's a little awkward removing the staple cartridge and I have gotten a pinched finger twice while reinserting. Lesson learned and I will be more careful in future.

                                                      Good product. Easy to use. Used to repair the upholstery on a recliner.

                                                              With this stapler, you don't have to consciously press down on the stapler to ensure good penetration--the thrust of the handle provides the pressure you need for material conact.

I decided there must be something better on the market...and was delighted to find this product. Project turned out great, my hand doesn't ache, great outcome! For some reason this software is not allowing me to enter 5 stars and top marks for design, quality and ease of use...but that is what intended.

As soon as I opened the package, & carefully followed the instructions on loading staples, I pushed down to fasten a staple, and nothing. I removed the staples and carefully followed the instructions again. And nothing again. When I looked at the business end of it, I could see that the plunger that supposed to push down on the staple was permanently down. There was no way the staple could have a chance because of the blockage. So disappointed.

I got 4 shots off and jammed. four more, then jammed. 2 more than jammed. Last two times one shot and jammed. Also lacks power. Will not fully set a 9/16"into soft wood. And yes I am using arrow brand T50 staples.

I figured i was buying a premium quality stapler when i bought the "Powershot Pro" I was very wrong. Last arrow product I will buy. * a schematic of your products available on your website would be super helpful so that I can try and fix my powershot .

Charger is very compact and I like the light which is red when charging then turns green when the unit is ready to go. The loading is a bit fiddly at first but not a big issue. Operation is reliable and easy. It does the job.

                                                                                                          I love the stapler for 1 yr. The stapler has had jams issues even using a fresh row of the correct size staple. After the 1st yr. The stapler has jammed for good. There are no staples in it and I can't push the handle all of the way down. It will go 1/2 way and STOP.

Charger is very compact and I like the light which is red when charging then turns green when the unit is ready to go. The loading is a bit fiddly at first but not a big issue. Operation is reliable and easy. It does the job. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
