        Comments about Sharp® Printing Light-Medium Duty Calculators; EL2196BL, 12-Digit, 2-Color:

        This EL-2196BL Calculator Printer works very well and very fast. I'm impressed with ease of operation as well as the impressive functionality. The larger display works very well for immediate response and update. Using the Printing Calculator for business the printing capability is great for keeping accurate records. We had a very similar version by Sharp that was being used for the same exact purpose and this one actually beats the older one - hands down. New state of the art technology by Sharp is highly recommended by my family business. Keep up the good work Sharp and, Staples for offering this great product at a very competitive price.

            Love it! Quiet, good size, so far dependable, and keys offer low resistance, which helps with speed and accuracy and is easy on the joints! Almost half the price of my old one of the same brand and the only difference is one smaller key. The only thing that I can think of as a con would be that its a little slower than I'm use to when printing, but nothing really noticeable to be a major inconvenience.

              This machine is very inconvenient for adding. The total key is to the left, not the right where it usually is.
