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.

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

        The staples brand products seem to be much more cost efficient and seem to work much better and longer than the name brand. This product works great for your work desk and is not too big so it does not take up much room. The buttons are big and the display is bright and bold. I would recommend this product to anyone that has a small work space as this does not take up the room like the plug in calculators do. Plus with this desk top calculator you do not have to worry about plugging it in or having light for the solar.

        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.
