Did not live up to the Sharp reputation .... dead calculator now....
1 week ago
Summary: So disappointed in this purchase. Loved the size and the functions but it died on me on my second use. Tried using the "reset" button to see if that helped, but no such luck. Because I don't use it all the time, I believe I'm beyond any warranty period. Was hoping it would be as good as the other Sharp calculators I have used over the years, both professionally and at home.
Summary: This calculator exceeded my expectations. Functions are easy to apply, the print roll of paper loads easily and the size isn't obtrusive on my desk. It arrived very quickly - faster than I expected. Packaging was excellent. All of the above reasons are among the many I continue to do most of my shopping - all categories - on Amazon.
Summary: The calculator is great. I have had it for about a month. It is compact and fits in a small space, yet the fingering is that of a larger calculator. It has all the same functions as my old calculator which was much larger. The only complaint I have is that the screen is not backlit and can be a little hard to read if the light isn't very bright.
Summary: This is my favorite style of desktop calculator. The wire roll holder on this model is a nice improvement over my old version that I was replacing that had two plastic holders on each side of which both had broken off.
Summary: Is it just me? This machine is very difficult for me to use. When I see the other reviews I wonder whether we are talking about the same product but I suppose those other reviews are from accountants or bookkeepers. Just trying to figure out how to get my total after subtracting took ages. Maybe I did not need one as advanced as this.
Open box item, failed to try all the keys until after the return window

Summary: I was really looking forward to having a printing calculator that was fairly compact, and ran on both batteries and AC power. The layout is similar to my calculator at work, which is also a Sharp. I had full expectations that this calculator would work like a champ as I have had no issues in over five years with y work version (AC power only) Silly me, I just turned it on when it arrived, made sure it had power. It looked pristine, so I assumed everything worked.
