Not for your grandmother

by Dennis Bathory-Kitsz on 7/30/2008

I bought this machine for my mother, formerly a fast typist. Now in her late 80s, she wanted an electric typewriter because her hands were painful when she used a manual one. Unfortunately, this is not the right machine for a number of reasons. The machine arrived promptly, but contained no manual. Futhermore, the manual -- which I downloaded while talking to her on the phone -- has poor illustrations and confusing boxes of instructions. Beyond that, nowhere in the manual or the (included) quick-start instructions was there a clue how to get the machine to work. There was a yellow piece a plastic marked "remove" which she removed. But when turned on, the machine just buzzed and beeped. After a long hold for tech support, we were told to remove another unmarked yellow part by pushing hard on it (difficult for her). It finally sprang out of the machine. It then turned on successfully. Unfortunately, you cannot see <i>anything</i> as you type. Instead of the ribbon assembly moving out of the way as it should, this typerwriter's design has the ribbon stay put. If the right code is pressed (and the machine resets all codes when turned off!), it will raise the <i>paper</i> after a one-second pause. This is just dopey. She finds typing either blind or slowly enough for the machine to show the typing to be frustrating. Furthermore, the autorepeat is not settable for her slow old hands, and she has to use the autocorrect ribbon -- and can't see what's on the paper! It's such a disaster that she's furious from 2,000 miles away and wants to have nothing to do with it. Read More

Good Buy For Light Needs

by A customer on 10/9/2010

I need a typewriter to complete some applications. This typewriter is perfect. I find it very user friendly, light and easy to transport. There was a manual included in the shipment. Delivery was extremely fast - I am very satisfied. For light and occasional typing needs for home or office this machine is perfect. Read More
