Summary: This seems to be a good, quality, machine! I'm sure that I am only using about 2% of it's capacity as a simple totaling machine.. keeping track of the prices of a large series of books. But at least this machine allows me to record the number of each book as well as the price.
Solid 12-key calculator, good price, but not without flaws

Summary: This calculator is a sturdy beast -- all of the keys have stood up to years of relatively competent data entry (in my day job in Accounts Receivable). It's a good value at this price, especially compared to some of the newer models with color-printing capacity.
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.
