Great design by Stanley so you don't have to take it apart to change blades. The little storage area for blades is neat too.
The blade change isn't totally intuitive so it would help if they put something like this on their packaging: "Push down black retractable blade button and push all the way forward past the detent so the button stays pushed down. Then push in the silver side button and pull blade out."
Only reason I gave it 4 stars is that I used it to cut some ceiling tile and rubbed off a big section of paint on the handle near the blade; they should have nickel or chrome plated that section instead of painting it.

For such a simple procedure this was one of the most frustrating things I have EVER had to learn in my life. If manufacturers would devote just 1/10 the effort providing instructions as they do in developing packaging that requires an athlete to open, it would never have been frustrating at all. I consider myself a pretty intelligent individual; but it took me HOURS to learn how to properly install a blade in this sucker. (I had not watched the video at that time; and to be honest, I'm not sure why the guy who produced the video had so much trouble getting it in once he understood the process.) Once I understood what to do, I have taken the blade in and out repeatedly in a few seconds each time; but getting there the first time can be mind boggling. I did somehow get the blade in the first time; but all I had was a little nub of a blade to cut with. Once I understood the process and got the blade out and back in, I had a fully functioning utility knife.

Three steps:
1) Push the slider all the way to the third click and then hold down and push once more until it locks into the down position.
2) THEN ... and only then ... push the yellow rounded button until you see the tiny guide come out a little bit.
3) Carefully insert the blade until you feel it pop into the first position and let go of the little yellow rounded button. That's it. You get three blade positions ... very short, medium and fully extended.

It's a snap once you get the hang of it; and the extra blade storage unit on the bottom is easy to work.

I am so glad to see other reviewers had problems figuring out how to change the blades. It has literally taken me 30 minutes to get the blade in, and I really thought I had just somehow gotten a broken one. Now that the blade is in, I don't have any idea how I got it there. Very frustrating as "using a knife" didn't bring to mind ideas of spending half an hour getting it ready before I could even start. Come on Stanley, put some directions on this thing. If you've got some time to figure out this Indiana Jones-esque device, go ahead and save a couple dollars. Otherwise, spend a few bucks more and get something easier to use.

edit as of 4/4/2011 - I put a video on here because I finally had time to make putting the blade in a project on its own. The quality isn't that great, but it's solid information and gives you a realistic idea of what changing blades is like. Once that blade is in, I have no complaints.

This is a very nice knife.
As was mentioned it is sometimes difficult to change the blade, you need to make sure push the blade ALL the way out and then press the blade release button. The spare blade holder is nice and big, I have about 5-6 blades there. The string cutter doesn't seem to work all that well, so I ususaly just use ther enitre blade to cut string.

I had a plastic utility knife that the paper boy ripped off. I wanted something good this time- not some cheap HD product. After looking at reviews I bought this. 2 DAYS later I was woken up by a knock on my door. It was hand delivered! The body is solid. It is hard to see how they can sell this so cheap. It is well made. It feels like a real tool. not the cheap plastic i once had. I had read reviews on how they could not figure out how to install a new blade. It took me about 2 minutes to figure it out- remove the blade from the storage side and install it.
If you can't figure this out in a minute or two then maybe you should not be using this product.
I am glad I spent the extra dollar or two and bought something that is quality.

Oddly there are no instructions on how to effect a quick change, but I figured it out. The yellow button at the front allows you to take out the razor and reinsert it backwards to use the full blade.After that you can put in a new blade by simply removing the old one and loading a new one from the set stored in the handle accessible with the lower back end yellow lever.

I like the compartment that holds the extra razor blades. I am the type who can usually never find the refills that I've squirreled away somewhere.

I only gave it 4 stars because I found loading it to be difficult. I had to jiggle and fuss a lot while the pieces of the knife seemed to not want to snap into place (I even followed the directions). That messing around was only a problem because I was a little worried about cutting myself while working the razor blade into the handle. Fortunately, I haven't yet!
