Excerpt: This is the second time I have purchased this model of the machine. I use it daily for the continued bookkeeping of 3 separate companies and their payrolls. It is very easy to use and this tax key is very helpful. I also like the fact that there are two memory sections so I can actually have three different columns of addition and/or subtraction being tracked at the same time. The first machine lasted over 5 years and I was very pleased by that.
Summary: This Calculator is a few steps up from the normal home use type. I am a recently retired Accountant and this model or it's predessor was the type and size that I used for 37 years. I needed only two of them, the entire time they are very dependable. I will use this new one primarily during Tax season and I'm confident that it will perform well. I also want to address the delivery. It arrived within two days. Incredible service.
Excerpt: This product is not 8.75" wide as described. It is closer to 10" --the same as Sharp's other machines. Their machines are so superior in every other way that size is not a big deal to me. Had I known, however, I probably would've bought their less expensive model.
Summary: This calculator has all the features required for accounting/bookkeeping duties. In addition to the functionality of the machine: 1) The display screen is angled to reduce/eliminate glare from overhead fluorescent lighting - Printer is quiet in comparison to lower priced makes/models of calculators - Has "solid" feel for data input..
