I am a CPA and still like to use a 10 key as I work. My 25+ year old version finally died so I needed a new one. This Sharp model has been great. I've been using it for 5 months now and I'm very happy with the keyboard spacing and key placement. Would definitely recommend this product.

I love the Sharp EL-2196BL - I have had one for years - I wanted this same model when mine needed to be replaced. The one I replaced was still going strong until I knocked over a drink on my desk - no problem with the calculator itself. I highly recommend!

After looking at quite a few different choices, this is a great replacement for my 1980 calculator. It has a small footprint, the keys are large and located in the right places. The display is bright.... I think this will work out just fine.

I have purchased the same calculator for almost 20 years. They last an average of 7 years - I'm on my third. The Sharp is a workhorse! I use it almost daily and almost never turn it off. I tried a more expensive Canon and it lasted all of 8 months. You won't go wrong with this model.

I love this calculator!! I had recently tried another brand and was not happy at all with it so I decided to purchase this one and I absolutely love it. It is fast enough to keep up with me and the equation keys make sense where they are located.
