Summary: I'm a CPA and this calculator is really terrific. The keys have a great touch and never miss a digit. Many functions including an automatic checker so you don't have write down the 1st total to compare. 12 digits. It's well worth the extra cost over the $5-15 junk on the market.
Summary: I Have found this to be an exellent calculator for my hone business as an Oil Feild Consulant. I takes up limited space on my desk and performs all the fuctions requied in my field of work. It is energy efficent as it runs off solar power and does not require battery replacement.
Summary: I believe that the Sharp Compet VX-2128R is no longer in production, so I was excited that this Amazon affiliated vendor had some left. Unfortunately, the calculator they sent was the VX-2128V, which is a different and cheaper (at least $10 less here on Amazon) calculator.
Summary: Now this calculator has meet all of my needs except for one. It states in the description that it does not have a "Auto Off" function, and it does. I would prefer to turn it off myself when I am done using it, but it stays on for an additional 7 minutes, after the last key has been pushed.
Excerpt: The vx-2128v is an excellent calculator for your home office or your desk at work. The display has a lock on the back and you can pivot the display angle then lock it in place. It also has twin power, so you probably, unless you work in the dark, never need to change the battery.
Pros: Suction cup type material on feet Locking Angle display Dual Power
