Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is reliable. I have had typewriters since 1946 (!!) and have used all makes and models. The most dependable and by far the most efficient was an electric German ADLER that I enjoyed for many, many years. When it finally developed a problem, I was unable to find a repairman anywhere, at which time I also encountered the problem that electric typewriters were no longer being manufactured due to the unfortunate arrival of the computer. I turned to the Brother Electric Typewriter also because replacement ribbons were available June 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Microsoft 8.1 grrrr! For 2 years I've been trying to use Microsoft office. That's 8.1 version. It's so complicated I've just given up. I'll take my good old (new) electronic typewriter any day. Thank you for carrying them. January 5, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good...But! This is a very good typewriter, but it is designed for left-handed people (as you can see from the picture -- note the position of the take-up spool). August 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Recipe transfer I am using this typewritter to put all of my Grandmother's recipes onto 4x6 cards so I will not destroy the orignals, which by the way are starting to fall apart because of the many years of use. December 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Writer Who Makes A Living Writing Used One Of These For Many Years! I have been making my living as a writer for many years! I have only had a computer and Internet access for the past four years. Before that, I exclusively used one of these beauties! I had this Brother typewriter, a ream of paper, a dictionary, and that was all...and I did just fine! The point is, if you want or need an outstanding typewriter, then this is the one! It is extremely well made, very dependable, and never fails. Of course, you need electricity, so if there is a power outage, you will have to wait for it to come back...but the same goes for a computer or the Internet! The ribbon cartridges are very easy to install when you need a new one, and the correction tape works like a "dream." This is the best typewriter I have ever owned, and a few years back, I liked it so much, that I bought a second one as a "back up." I was fearing, at that time, that they might one day stop making typewriters! I cannot say enough good things about this machine! Now get busy with that writing! November 8, 2012
