I've had the typewriter set for a while now - haven't had any problems with it at all! - but I love it even more now that I have a proper desk to put it on. The stationary box fits nicely on top of the desk whereas the typewriter (complete with a piece of felt underneath - to prevent any sticking to the desk surface) fits nicely on the desktop itself.
The typewriter itself, though a little under scale obviously, is a wonderful piece. A little fragile maybe and a little tricky to load the paper in, but well worth the price for sure! I love how each row of keys can really be "typed" and how it really dings at the end of a row!
