It does what its supposed to...for the most part
on March 1, 2012
I received this as a gift and set it to work counting some loose change at my office. It determines the type of coin by the widest measurement and requires that you push the coin through quickly. Since the slot is spring loaded, you might have difficulty pushing coins through sometimes and the counter will read inaccurately. Also if you push it halfway into the slot and pull it out, it might still count it anyway. Not a big deal, but it keeps me from rating this 5 stars.
The buttons to subtract coins from the total work nicely. I only wish there was an extra way for it to show you how many of each coin are in the jar; this way I could tell when it is time to make a roll.
