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...

          This stapler is great for older people who do not have the strength in their hands to operate manual staplers. Tried it on different materials and it has the power to drive the staples fully.

              This is a super easy tool to use and gives a very strong push when stapling. I recently used Stainless steel staples to repair a boat hoist felt. It worked so well my neighbors on both sides borrowed it to redo their project. One went out and purchased one of their own the following week. My wife uses it for her projects covering cornice boards. Highly recommend this stapler.

                  I just bought this electric stapler and used it to reupholster two chairs- had no problems and it stapled through several layers of fabric very well.

                          This is a great tool for DIY and larger projects. The design is easy on the hands. Staplers I've used in the past made me fee like is was manually driving the staples. It's easy to load and I love that it takes both staples and brads!

                              We were at the end of a project and needed to install carpet on wooden stairs. Although we only needed this for 13 stairs, we needed the correct tool for the last part of this project, so after a few minutes of discussion, we decided to purchase this tool. It made the project easy and our hands and shoulders did not ache from trying to push carpet staples into the wooden stairs. Very handy and I'm sure we will use it again.

                                      I had one of these for many years and was very happy with it. It finally gave out and I bought a new one. I dont use it very often but when I do, the handle does not snap back and I have to pull it out for every staple. Must be made cheaper than before, I would not recommend anymore

                                          I install whole house AV systems and have used a lot of different staplers in my time (manual and electric). This is far and away the best manual gun I have ever used - no fatigue factor even after a longish session. I rarely use the electric gun at this point. Well done!

                                              On my 4th one in 2 years. Always use authentic arrow staples and gun constantly jams or breaks. Tried to contact Arrow, can't send a message without a password. Being a woman, I loved this stapler because it was so much easier to use. Too bad it's such a piece of garbage.

                                                              I have owned the 5700 for a number of years, but only use it about ten times a year. I have found it to be easy to use accurately, with minimal fatigue, and with very effective and consistent staple placement. it is my favorite staple gun. But, alas, my 5700 has broken. The blade that contacts the staple has broken. The blade is a small part that is easy to replace, but I cannot find replacement parts. Does arrow offer replacement parts for the Powershot 5700?

Went to use it the other day and it stopped for some reason. I've tried taking it apart to repair and it fell apart even more one me. Unfortunately the warranty is no good any more so all I can say is I bought a piece of junk.

                                                                          I own an older model T-75 Arrow Stapler, for which it is becoming increasingly hard to find staples for purchase. I decided to purchase this new PowerShot 5700, and am glad I did. It is easy to sue, and being able to "lean"into the stapler instead of having to squeeze the handle like on the old model makes it easy to drive staples without the resulting hand-aches of the older model. I recommend this stapler to anyone who has a need for a relatively inexpensive tool that does the job.

After adjusting to the slight difference in where pressure is applied and feel, it was a joy to use. My old stapler left my hand aching after a large project and took most of my hand strength to staple. I may have weaker than usual hands. I limited my staple gun projects due to the exertion required to use the old staple gun, and the effect that had on the precision of my staple placement. This new one is a dream. I don't jerk back after triggering the staple, and after many repetitions my hand doesn't shake straining to depress the trigger.

The new one was much easier on this old goats hands. I very much recommend the 5700 for older people.

The power that bunches the staple into the wood is awesome. I have used staple guns for over 45 years and this is the best.

I used the new stapler to staple plastic over windows for the winter and it worked great. Much less effort required to staple than the traditional T50 stapler. I didn't need to use it until this fall (2016) when I was stapling insulation in the walls and ceiling which worked great. It started jamming using #504 staples then eventually quit working. Of course, I don't have the receipt so I can't replace it under the warranty.

I purchased this unit last night for a chest that I am making for my wife. I needed to go though some 3/16 furniture grade paneling without going to deep and this unit does the job nearly perfect.
