The typewriter arrived in a timely manner, but upon opening it was apparently a return or a refurbish. The type writer itself was dirty and scratched up. It had mostly cosmetic issues but because it is for my clinic I was unable to put it in plain view of my patients in the place we had originally intended. The typewriter ribbon was virtually destroyed. A good bit of the ribbon was on the outside of the cartridge and it was very gnarled up. We needed the typewriter for a specific task and could not wait for a return so we had to make do. It does fulfill the basic needs. Nothing fancy, but it was inexpensive.
I like it. Price are very reasonable. Shipping is very cheap and fast deliver. Good product. I have recommend all my friends to go to overstock.com for purchasing.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? So far so good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good
I found this machine to be everything that was advertised and more. It is light weight and has a smooth feel when in use . It will come in handy for my writing needs. This machine I can highly endorse. Those in need of a good piece of writing equipment should take a good look at the Brother Typewriter.
I am very pleases with my typewriter so far. I liked the convenance of looking through your website to shop for and find exactly what I was looking for. It is small and lightweight and store away easily. It is a christmas gift so I cant comment on it's performance so far but overall I am satisfied with my whole experience with Overstock.com
using an electric typewrite used to be great, but after using an apple keyboard to type digitally, it is something to get used to. the instructions are terrible. there should be a decent youtube video but there isn't one from the company.
This typewriter does not allow you to see what you are typing. There is a tiny little window that allows you to see only 3 letters at a time. It is very lightweight and easy to use without reading any manuals. I'll be returning this item.
My friend asked me to help him pick a good typewriter online because his old one's mechanism holding the ribbons worn out. After almost a month of usage, he did not mention any problems with the new typewriter and has been using this kind of machines for 30 years. I just want to say THANK YOU Brother for still making good typewriters and Overstock for great prices.
