Nakijima WP 150 TypewriterI love this because I only have a tablet-no PC anymore. There are things you have to type. I paid $220. before Christmas when I saw it was on sale which is ok, but it hurts. Before you start typing, take your time and open up the top of the writer, because there is a rectangular block of styrofoam under there, and you’ll never get it out by trying to pull it out! I could not lift the lid up initially, and was afraid to put much pressure on it. It finally lifted up, & I could remove the styrofoam. Read the Manual that comes with it. As another reviewer said, the ink was bad when he got his. That happened to me before I read the manual and it was because you Must Remove The Plastic Piece Attached To The Ink Cartridge before typing. After I did that, I was a typing fool! It is a great machine and it came in perfect condition in it’s own box which was also in a shipping box. I recommend this typewriter; it is lightweight, compact and easy to use.

Not many choices for a typewriter these days!!I looked a Brother, Nakajima and restored vintage typewriters. The vintage units are super expensive and the providers have real attitude problems. The Brother unit did not have great reviews or reported good reliability. The Nakajima WPT-150 seemed a better choice. Nakajima has been the OEM manufacturer for 6-7 famous brand name typewriter models (Adler, Canon, Olympia, Swintec, Royal, Olivetti, Sears) that have since been discontinued in a shrinking market. So Nakajima seemed like the best bet.The WPT-150 turned out to meet our needs quite nicely. It does everything that a basic typewriter is supposed to do and more. And at about $135 with shipping, how much am I risking?. We use it for labels, 3×5 cards, forms and the other typical typewriter chores. So it will get very light duty over time.I spoke with the service folks in NC to ask some questions about sources and part numbers for ribbons and printwheels. I was very impressed with their friendliness and technical knowledge. After a couple days of using the typewriter, we went ahead and bought 6 ribbons (#XC001), a package of correction tapes (#LO001) and an Orator 10 printwheel.

Arrived broken. Happy Mother’s Day!This was a Mother’s Day gift for my 80+ mother who loves to correspond, but has trouble holding a pen these days. She was thrilled. My flower toting brothers were shamed. When I took it out of the box, the space bar went flying across the room. The ribbon wouldn’t advance because the little gear that turned it didn’t work. My flower toting brothers snickered. I ran to the nearest office supply place and found the exact same thing but with a well known brand name, and paid twice as much, but it works.
It has an abundance of special characters that are useful and clearly read‘Got this one ’cause old Smith Corona finally died. This typewriter is a suitable replacement. After reading the real clear, explicit instructions packed with a power-cord, and packed well I might add, I discovered why the S.C. died. I turned it off at the switch on the typewriter itself, but did not unplug it, as instructed. Evidently, the power switch on the typewriter is a short term affair, and instruction I did not heed with the S.C.(Probably burnt up A.C./D.C. converter) ‘Won’t happen again. This one can do all I need to type thick invoices to customers for my small(tiny) business, but business nevertheless, and a professional look is necessary and the “150” gives it. You know a typewriter has a certain rhythm and this one’s got soul, Japanese soul. Some half-tones. It has an abundance of special characters that are useful and clearly read. For the money it has so many useful features, I’m overwhelmed. An excellent buy. Don’t forget to unplug!
Typewriter Works Perfectly!I am in love with this new electric typewriter. It is so easy on the hands (I have arthritis) that I can type speedily like I used to in the olden days. . The manual explains all the parts and keys of the typewriter, which is exactly what I needed as it has been so many years since I used a typewriter and just wanted one to try my hand at writing again. I am so happy I took the plunge and gave it a try.
Great little typewriter!This is a wonderful little machine! I replaced a Brother GX-6750 (clumsy, correction awkward) and so glad I found this one. It’s a little more expensive, but crisper type, easier action and really simple correction.

Great Electric Typewriter!I have purchased 2 of these typewriters. One for me and recently one for my mother-in-law. This brand is a great value. All the other brands like Brother and Smith Corona were incredibly expensive. This brand was affordable and the machine works beautifully. It has the basic features that you would want and additional supplies like ribbon cartridges and correcting tapes can be ordered through Amazon. So happy to find this when electric typewriters are becoming so obsolete. For those of us that still utilize electric typewriters, this is a great, affordable option!
