XE-A505 is a good small business cash register support 99 departments and 9999 Price Look Up (PLU/UPC) code. That's if you want build it one item at time. Unfortunately the software provide by Sharp for build, update PLU/UPC code are very user unfrindly. You have to scan or key in the code on the register before it can be updated on your PC. Propitiatory database which has no import/export utility to interface PLU/UPC database with MS Excel or other popular spreedsheets therefore in practice for a small business like ours you can only maintain few hundred items. No easy way to make across board price changes other than time consumming item by item. If any one knows any 3rd party data exchange software can interface with XE-A505 SD saved programming data please let me know.

If I do this over again I will check out software capability (which is not very clear in manufacture's product description)before I buy.

If you don't need maintain high number of PLU/UPC this is a good machine otherwise check others out before you make your decisions.

As April, 2010 I dumped XE-A505 cash register. I now use Imonggo a web base cash register and it works great. Any Internet connection will do. (ADSL, Cable, WIFI or a smartphone with 3G data plan). I use my laptop with Vorizon EVDO data connecting and a USB thermal receipt printer linked to a cash drawer. As this month (July 2010) I also singed up their integrated credit card service and canceling my existing mobile credit card processing service. I recommend try Imonggo free version and see for your self. Free version URL: [...]

Cash register works ok. Bar scanner does not work at all in the sunlight! We bought it to use in a fireworks tent, and had to create dark shade to get it to work during the day.
The logo feature is not very good for the register receipt. It never comes out like you want it, and it is VERY limited as to what you can do.

MY old cash register went out. I bought a Royal and was not happy. I purchased the Sharp XE-A505 and programmed it and returned the Royal. The software is better, the programming easier, and having the journal tape made this machine a good choice. This register is a great value and just satisfies my need so well. I like it.

Purchased from Costco with hand held scanner. Top of the line with link to PC and Quick Books. This is by far the worst product I have ever purchased. Z tape is nightmare and product does not have any support. PC features don't work at all. Error after error. Absolute nightmare compared to my old cash register. I don't know for 2 weeks now what my daily sales are. I will never buy anything else from Sharp. If I could rate this I would rate it a 0. Beware!

I Had this register for just about one year before I threw it out of the third story window. The register tape starter failing after 3 months and then it got so bad I had to get rid of it for another of the $99 Royal brand that I had for the first 12 years I owned a business. I am so glad I never got around to logging in all my products and SKU numbers on this PoS.

I first ordered this product back in january, but had to send it back because the original register didn't work properly. The register we have now works fine, but it is taking me a while to learn how to use.

This is NOT a cash register for scanning. Yet it is too expensive for use as a simple cash register with four tax codes. I did use it for scanning but you CAN NOT PROGRAM it from your PC ! Everything is item by item at the register.
But I am hard-headed. I did enter over 1000 UPC codes in the register manually.
Then the register froze (I've had it about 10 months) I was devastated, I use a good power conditioner and the wiring and plug were not disturbed. I had stopped pricing items in my store. But I was able to restore the programming. I was elated ! I had been backing up the FULL programming every week and saving it to the SD card (it will Not take a card bigger than 512 MB though). I still had to do some reprogramming besides the RESTORE procedure.
Now about 6 weeks after that, and doing full backups every night, AGAIN the register lost its memory during normal use. I had to again CLOSE THE STORE and went through the restore sequence. I am going to HAVE TO find a new register. It is great that I can restore and get it up and running again, BUT NO BUSINESS CAN RUN WITH AN UNRELIABLE SYSTEM.
The proported link to Quckbooks is fraudulent. You can NOT do anything in QB that can be exported to the register. Support for the register from the factory is
non-existant.

I purchase this from Costco almost 2 years ago, never had any problems. Very easy to use and very easy to set up. Programming items to scan was the most easiest part. I have never seen any register that is so easy to set up.

The only problem is I can only programme 7,000 items, it seems a lot when I first purchase it but 2 years later memory is full and I am stuck with this register. I finally upgrade to a "unlimited" scan item pos and this will be up for sale.

Long story short this register is highly recomended for a very small business/retail store. But if you sell lot of items and get new items on daily basis you should look for a better register. I am giving 4 stars because I never had any problems with this, I wish it can programme more than 7,000 items.
