This is a robust typewriter with easily accessible and easy-to-use functionalities i.e. setting the tabs, half-spacing, ribbon color switching. It is also an aesthetically beautiful machine (particularly the vibrancy of the blue version; and the aluminum carriage knobs). However, the description is incorrect in that this is not an electric machine; it is a full manual machine.
