Great calculator.. only complaint would be that it only has two rubber feet/pads on the base as opposed to four. Still very stable though. I've been through many and this is probably my favorite "desktop" calculator.

Fist, mine arrived a few weeks ago and looks quite different than the picture, but has the same model number on it. However, that does not bother me but...

It feels cheap, and does not work well unless you operate very slowly! If you press 2 buttons too close in succession it may skip the second. I used it for 3 days, then bought another, cheaper, Canon that I can press keys on as fast as I want.

290X works well

Comments about Staples® SPL-290X Desktop Calculator:

I purchased the Staples SPL-290x CALCULATOR FOR THE FACT THAT IT HAS A NORMAL SIZE KEYBOARED AND THE KEYS ARE SUCH THAT YOU KNOW YOU HAVE USED ONE. I BASICALLY USE THE DEVICE TO AD UP NUMBERS WHEN A TAPE IS NOT REQUIRED. IT IS WORTH THE HIGHER COST AS ITS SIZE PREVENTS ME FROM MAKING ERRORS. I WOULD PURCHASE AGAIN SHOULD IT STOP WORKING IN THE FAR DISTANCE FUTURE.

Comments about Staples® SPL-290X Desktop Calculator:

We've had to return three of these, because sometimes they just won't turn on, or they'll shut off mid-function. Since they're dual power, they shouldn't be totally dependant on bright light in order to work, but if these hadn't been left in direct sunlight most of the day, they wouldn't turn on at all. When they work, they're fine, but the fact that they won't always turn on is a pretty big negative.

(I heard from an associate that if they're left on the shelf too long at the warehouse, that's prone to happen)
