Excerpt: Great calculator. It works fast and accurately. It's a good size and easily readable. Since we have a 14% sales tax for motels in New Jersey I can put the sales tax rate into the calculator. Then when I quote someone I can give them the rate, then by hitting the sales tax button it gives me the amount including sales tax and hit it again and it tells me the amount of the sales tax.
Excerpt: Hello, Staplers!This desktop calculator is by far, the best purchase I have made in more than a month! In addition to the basic 4 functions, it also can calculate sales taxes, and foreign exchange rates! It's perfect for calculating capital gains taxes and foreign currency exchange transactions! How astounding is that?In addition, because it works with both batteries and solar cell, it's always available and ready!
Summary: This little calculator can stand along side an electric, expensive calculator. But this hand held size works the same as the big one, yet costs a fraction of the big electric one. I really feel I got a real bargain. The quality and performance are great for the small price I paid.
Excerpt: I bought this calculator because it was dual powered solar plus battery. There are no instructions on replacing the battery so I asked Casio. Much to my surprise they told me that the battery was not user replaceable. Bettery type is an LR1130 button which is inexpensive and available. The calculator works fine - but it's brand new- and the key pressures feel solid. I think the fact that the battery is not user replaceable should be known before purchasing.
