Summary: This compact calculator meets almost all my needs that a full-sized option does. Have never had any problems with the solar source and the full-sized keys are a plus. Only possible downside is the occasional printing that I want to do!
Summary: I have had this calculator for at least 25 years and it is still going strong! Because it is solar powered, I have never replaced the battery at all. The keys are nice and big (but not too big) for easy and accurate use. As a CPA, I put a lot of mileage on this calculator but you could never tell. It both works great and looks great. Certainly it does not look brand new but on the other hand it doesn't look 25 years old either.
Summary: Great if you are looking for a calculator that operates like a big desktop, plug in calculator. Easy to total up lists of numbers with quick keystrokes. I am an a/p manager and am always totaling up large lists of numbers and needed something that I could move around easily. This was it hands down. I had bought a different type of desktop calculator where the #'s would get stuck and you really had to press hard to get the # to come up. This is not like that at all.
