Summary: Had it's predecessor for many years...when it retired itself it seemed pointless not to get another. Meets all my needs, inexpensive and so far has held up the "family reputation" of any other Canon product that I have owned or used in business.
Excerpt: I just needed a small, basic printing calculator for work, and was quite happy to find this one for under $20. It hs a nice, clear print, the buttons are plenty big enough to not mistakenly hit another button, and the paper tears off easily. The only downfall of this product is that if the cover is seated tightly in place the paper jams if you aren't careful about how its put in place. That is more of a user error, but still a little frustrating when in a hurry.
Excerpt: if the item had come with the available A/C adaptor so it wasn't necessary to only use the batteries (thankfully included) or purchase the adapter separately. Thought the lack of its inclusion was somewhat deceptive packaging. Lesson learned.
