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.

desktop calculator

Comments about Staples® 12-digit SPL-290X Desktop Calculator:

This calculator takes a long time to work if you keep it in a drawer. It needs to be kept out in the open so it can work on solar power even though it has new batteries in it. Once it gets going it is okay but it is not our favorite calculator. I bought it because of the large buttons. I have big hands/fingers so the bigger buttons work well for my needs.

The woes of a thrifty person

Comments about Staples® 12-digit SPL-290X Desktop Calculator:

I gotta say I love Staples and they have always had what I needed, when I needed it. I happen to be a pack rat, I mean an organized saver, I mean a wise hoarder...well I try not to spend mine or anyone else's money foolishly. This account is a business account. Staples always has coupons, online sales, store specials, fill a bag days and of course the ink toner bonuses. I have never had a new calculator always a "used one". I was standing in front of the adding machine counter and said to myself, "I deserve a brand new item." WOW what a great decision. For a moment I became frivolous and actually paid full price for an item.. Okay I did have a coupon but it was a great purchase and it is on my desk with daily uses. I have a smart phone that has a calculator but this one is much easier. LOL

Sticky Keys

Comments about Staples® 12-digit SPL-290X Desktop Calculator:

It looked like a good calculator, but now that I'm using it I really wish I would have bought the Sharp or the Casio. The keys stick enough for it to be a real pain to use. The display isn't lit well enough so I have to pick it up in order to see what is displayed. They may have been good at one point but the quality is not there now.
