Bought this stapler to insulate my son's house and it works like a charm. Looks like I'll be using to insulate my new house in the spring.
Easy to load and to use.
It holds two rows of staples which is a nice feature too.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight

Magazine lock design is so poor it makes the tacker unusable.

No, I do not recommend this product.
The overall quality of the tacker is ok with the exception of the operation of the magazine lock. Just touching or brushing the end of the tacker causes the magazine lock to release all of the staples out the bottom due to poor design. I was tacking Tyvek onto an addition and the magazine opened up every few minutes dropping the staples due to lightly touching the end. There does not appear to be a way protect the magazine lock short of putting duct tape around the end of the tacker. This product makes you wonder if Dewalt tests their products before they release them for sale. I was up and down the ladder 20 times picking up staples of the ground. I have already purchased a competitors product and it works fine.
Cons: magazine does not stay locked

We use these tackers on a daily basis. I have purchased different brands before and they would last a few months. The Dewalts I have purchased are over a year old now and still going strong.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Durable, Strong, Light Weight, Long-Lasting

THE STRAIGHT HANDLE DESIGN DOES NOT ALLOW FOR A LEVEL BLOW WITH THE STAPLER.
THE ANGLE YOU NEED TO HOLD IT AT TO KEEP FROM BEATING UP YOUR FINGERS WHILE HAMMERING RESULTS IN VARIABLE STAPLE DEPLOYMENT.
Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
Cons: Difficult to Use
