Summary: This was a purchase for my 83 year old Father who needed an "adding machine". He also needed a large, easy to read display, same with the keys. He was elated to receive this. Functions just as an adding machine would, and even with his diminished vision, he said it was easy to read and use.
this is great! Not oversized as some are and my hope ...

Summary: If you're looking for a basic adding machine with a few calculation options, this is great! Not oversized as some are and my hope is this one will last. Had an old Texas Instruments one that lasted for over 20 years.
Excerpt: Bought this to replace an older Sharp EL-1197 IV adding machine that was purchased around 1989.First, I'd like to echo the minor complaint of other people that the keys are not in the same place as their other EL-XXXX models.
Excerpt: I already have one of these, so I'm replacing my other one which was an Ativa machine (it was wearing out) It has the keys in the same place. Very important to me because I use it a lot. Just plugged it in and started using it.
Pros: Light/ Compact, Good Value, Clear Display, Easy to Use, Useful Functions, Quality
Summary: This replaces another machine I've had for years. Works just as it should. Comfortable to operate. Ink rollers very easy to acquire. I don't need a more elaborate machine. Does all the functions I need.
Excerpt: This machine wasn't displayed in the store so I had no idea when I ordered it how small and slow it is. It might be fine for someone working at home for paying household bills but for everyday moderate business use it just doesn't work.
