Summary: Good calculator that does everything I need it to. I would have liked a back light for the LCD read out. And, if I leave it unattended for more than a few minutes, it shuts off automatically. I then have to slide the power switch to off, then to the on position to use it again. Small complaints, but the main reason for 4 instead of 5 stars.
Summary: This calculator dies while being plugged in. If you have to leave it for a few minutes you come back and it has shut off in the midst of a job. No batteries were used, just the wall plug. Buyer better quick total before leaving it.
Summary: Upon receipt I tried to set the date & time from instructions very poorly written. It did not work. I called Canon support only to find the function was not working properly. They stated I should send the calculator to them for repair or replacement. Trouble is they wanted ME to pay the freight cost to return it. That would amount to almost as much as the calculator cost!?! Sound like a fair solution to you?
Summary: I gave my old one purchased in 2001 (still working) to my mother-in-law who is 85 and needed a calculator with larger numbers. The operation is so easy to learn and I will continue to purchase this model as long as they manufacture them.
If you want to work with the strangest calculator, ever, go ahead and buy it!

Summary: Don't waste your money. This is not a calculator, in the normal sense of the word. It does not handle like a calculator. The minus sign works in the most peculiar way. You won't like it. It's a pain in the t*sh. It can only be appreciated by those professional accountants who have nothing better to do than to play around on their little toys.
Desktop Printing Calculator meets most needs more than adequately

Summary: This calculator is nearly a duplicate of the one I've used for five or more years, so I had no difficulty getting used to the way it functions and feels, which is fine! My one complaint is that the ink ribbons seem to wear out quickly, especially the red ... I have modest visual impairment and often find myself straining to read the digits clearly.
