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.

Staples desktop calculator

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

Ordered this calculator for work and found it to be a great choice. Even though it is a desktop it is small enough to take around with you to meetings or even back and forth to work. The keys are very easy to use and actually fit your fingertip in it so well that you can work it without looking at the keys. It has tax and rate keys as well as solar or battery run.I have tried several hand held ones but this is the best. It compares well with any of the other top brand name calculators but is more reasonably priced.

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

By far the best calculator out there. I like it because of the larger numbers and user friendly set up. It is a sturdy calculator and will drop on floor and still works .I work at a diner type restaurant where sales checks are all added up by hand, no computer system. Also they are used 24 hrs a day .I only buy casio. thank you

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

For an inexpensive calculator this model is perfect for the desk and counter in a retail setting. We can easily calculate a percentage off of a product to relay the end cost of a discounted product to the customer. We can calculate markup instantly to relay an accurate cost to the customer. We have found this product to be easy to use and understand even for a novice. We need a portable calcultor for our salespeople and this is the one our sales staff prefers and requests. We recommend this calculator.

Nice calculator But....

By Mosey

from Illinois

Verified Buyer

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

This calculator worked for the first few days that I had it and then certain numbers began to not work. at first I thought I was making input errors so I would reenter the numbers and I would get a totally different number than before. This went on for quite awhile until I notice the the 7 and 8 keys were not working at all and that was why I was getting so many different answers. I tried letting the calculator shut off and turn back on but that was not the problem ans well as hitting the clear and clear memory button many times. There was also a problem of the machine being uneven and rocking every time I would hit the the plus key. I had to take the machine back for a refund as the store did not have another one to replace it. Other than those issues, this was a good machine for the money and for what I needed it for.
