Excellent for the staples it uses
It would be 5+ stars if I could use different staples, like single round cable ie cat 5 or tv. Perfect for one or two runs of romex or multiples of the round stuff though.

This stapler is small big packs a punch! It fits nicely in your hand. Although I didn't use the gun for what it was intended for it actually has another use that I love! I put the DeWalt stapler to work on my 80 acre farm stapling my 5 strand barbed wire fence to my hedge posts! And if u ever built fence before u know what I mean when I say sometimes it's a lot of trouble trying to get those darn steeples where they are supposed to be. After yet another black fingernail I got a little mad and threw down my hammer and picked up the stapler and started using it to fasten the fence to the post! Amazing!

First of all the battery life is incredible.
I didn't know how the 2 amp hour battery would compare with my bigger 20v Dewalt batteries, all my Dewalt batteries last forever and this one isn't an exception. I have put a whole box of staples through it over two days, a garage rough in and a smaller residential rough in. The battery is still showing 3/3 bars, I am now not even going to bother bringing my spare battery and charger.

One tip to help you use less staples, and this also makes the staple hold tighter. When you pull the trigger to staple your wire push into it a little. When you do it on engineered joists push a little harder with your off hand on the back. Its funny to see people claiming to be electricians not figure this out when I figured it out halfway through my first staple box. In the first half of my stapling I stapled excessively because I hadn't figured out I could adjust retention by how hard I pushed.

What did I staple though?
Data runs - 3 cat5s and a coax on each one x5
A ton of home runs in 12/2, it handled doubling, and even trippling up of the wire like it was nothing.
A 10/3 for a dryer which again went beautifully.

Another really awesome way you can use this stapler is to put the bottom at the last staple and hit it again. I could do most of my stapling today one handed because the head of the stapler held the wire up. The prongs that go around the wire also allowed me to straighten the wire and hold, and staple it all with one hand. This one handed operation is a godsend up on a ladder, you can do more with less ladder moves. Whoever came up with the "2x faster than manual hammering" in the Dewalt marketing office was generously understating how much time this thing saves.

One more time for the little girl that returned his stapler because it "didn't staple hard enough to hold the wire straight", push into it and work a little, Newtons laws apply. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. This stapler hits them powerfully meaning if you aren't pushing it will bounce back slightly and lead to less penetration.

In other words don't be dissuaded from buying this because of people who don't understand physics or nay sayers saying they are having a hard time with staple availability. The staples will come and are already very available.

Long lasting/works great
Bought this a few months ago for work, easy to use, smooth handling, tough finish. I usually use it for pre-wire jobs or running new cable/line throughout clients home. Definitely can’t argue with the durability of Dewalt. Would recommend for any user

This makes roping houses so much easier and faster. Next we need pressure adjustments and a way to get the tight spots.

Made old work attic wiring so much better
I bought this a month ago because a project of adding several plugs and switches was coming and this would require me running 100's of feet of romex through my attic. I do not believe it is safe to leave unsecured wires even in my own attic but as a DIY/Homeowner am not terribly good at using standard electric staples. This combined with the heat of the attic made this tool a godsend. I was able to secure my all my Romex overhead or along the face of the rafters often in places I could barely reach and my thumbs are bruise free my staples are not bent nor my wires shorted and I didn't pass out from the heat.

Only thing I would like to see in the staples to be a little tighter, often times you could slide the romex back and forth through the secured staple, also an additional step to access the staple loading mechanism would be on my list of improvements. Still great for a gen 1 tool. Also would really like to be able to rent as it will probably now sit unused for a year or 2.
