Comments about Sharp® Printing Heavy-Duty Calculators; EL1197PIII Professional:

I have purchased this calculator many times for a large tax department. I'm not sure what has changed, but the last two that I have purchased have had issues. One lasted 4 months and one lasted 2 months. We have had issued with the paper tape catching when it is fed through - this has happened on several models. The newest model has been dropping the right most digit on the tape. When I called Sharp to see what they could do, they said I would have to send it in. REALLY! We are a tax department and these get used heavily on a daily basis, we can't afford to be without them. I will be looking for replacement models and they won't be this model or anything from Sharp.

Tax Time Trouble

from Hilton Head SC

Comments about Sharp® Printing Heavy-Duty Calculators; EL1197PIII Professional:

Of course, my printing calculator of longstanding went on a rampage(s) at the wrong time and it was getting extremely frustrating. After many years of faithful service ,the printing department of the machine began to have a mind of its own--taking off at any time during use with unfathomable actions such as printing whatever it wanted whenever. It seemed to take on a mind of its own. (similar to a rampant computer) in its old age..
Realizing the phenomenal service I had received with the 'old' machine, I was happy to see you still carried an updated version of the same. Thank you..

Sharp Adding Machine

        Comments about Sharp® Printing Heavy-Duty Calculators; EL1197PIII Professional:

        After many years together, my first sharp adding machine added its last number. Alas, I was stuck looking for a new adding machine. I knew I had rewards points coming from Staples so I started my search. With Staples clear description, and the availability for me to chat on line to a representative if I had any questions, and knowing I could return my purchase if it did not fit my needs, I felt confident with my Sharp EL-1197 purchase. It was a wise choice. Buttons are large enough to make adding, subtracting, etc. quick and easy. I would recommend this product.

        Comments about Sharp® Printing Heavy-Duty Calculators; EL1197PIII Professional:

        We use calculators every day in our business of property management and we always end up buying a Sharp if ever we wear one out or hire a new employee! They seem to be the best when it comes to ease of use, functionality, appearance, ease in changing the ribbon, and just the overall great quality of the machine. In the past, we have tried other brands but as I mentioned, we always end up going back to this machine as well as others that are made by Sharp. I would highly recommend this product, as it is a good value for the price.

        Comments about Sharp® Printing Heavy-Duty Calculators; EL1197PIII Professional:

        So far I really like the machine. My only drawback is that the grand total button is on the left side and I am used to it being on the right side. It just takes getting used to.

          Comments about Sharp® Printing Heavy-Duty Calculators; EL1197PIII Professional:

          I have been doing accounting for over 25 years, and have used this model for at least 8-10 of the last years, I even wore one out! I am used to the key layout - every model has a different layout, which if you add by touch can really through you off if you get one with function keys not where you are used to them being. I love this one because it is compact and doesn't take much space on my desk, it is not really loud when you use the print function, and it does NOT sound like a machine gun, which can be really annoying to everyone that has to hear those kinds of calculators! I am really fast at 10-key entry and it has no problems keeping up with me and stays accurate.

          I have purchased this many times for others in my office as well and have had no complaints.

          Comments about Sharp® Printing Heavy-Duty Calculators; EL1197PIII Professional:

          The Sharp Calculator is used by all office personnel. We have never had an issue with this device or any Sharp device for that matter. Never a paper jam, no sticking keys and no other malfunctions of any kind. We use this device daily and will continue to do so until Sharp tells us otherwise. In fact my device has been used for over 5 years now and it is in perfect condition. Sharp has really made this a quality product and will continue to buy this product for all new staff members that are brought on board in the future.

          For the money, this calculator is a work horse. I am an accountant and this gets daily hard use. I bought one about five or six years ago and it's still going strong so I bought one for home use.
