Pros: Easy-to-read display, 2-color printing, AC or battery power
I have used lots of calculators and adding machines throughout the years and I must say Texas Instruments seems to be my favorite. For the price, dependability and ease of use, you just can't beat this version. I use this calculator on a daily basis and have had it for about 2 years. I have never had any problems with it. The placement of the keys on the keypad seem to fit my hand/fingers just right, which in turn allows me to run total tickets quickly and accurately. The paper is also easily replaced and has a feed button that helps to feed it through. The buttons are clearly marked and the display is nice and large so it is also easy to read. The printout comes out neat and bold. Replacement ribbons are also very inexpensive and are not needed very often. The option of using the AC adapter or batteries also adds to its functionality and appeal. It does have 2-color printing which shows negatives numbers in red on the tape which is very helpful in balancing/reconciling. I would recommend this product at any time.
