Casio put all the features of their regular printing calculators into a small portable unit that's great for people on the go who need a printed record of their work. The compact unit weighs in at only 1.5 pounds and will work on 4xAA batteries in addition to the included AC adapter so you can carry it in your briefcase and be ready to work anywhere.
There are cost/sell/margin and mark-up/-down keys making this a great choice for a sales office. When you are done figuring line items hit the grand total key to get the total cost of the order. Keep on top of your business with Casio and the HR-150TM.
Pros: Printing works nicely. Has most all of the features that I would need in a calculator for my small business.
Cons: You REALLY need to push down the buttons in order for it to recognize your keystrokes. For me, it was worst with the 1 and the 0 keys. When I am trying to add a series of numbers together, I would often have to start all over again because it failed to recognize my 1's and 0's. So when adding things, you need to constantly double check to make sure that every keystroke was entered (which is quite a hit in productivity). The only way I can get this calculator to catch ever key stroke is to hit the keys so hard that my fingers begin to hurt.
Other Thoughts: I finally just threw the thing out. I just couldn't take it any more. If I press a key, I should be able to assume that it will notice that I pressed it.
