I couldn't have done a better review myself. This one was spot on--I found the same conclusions you did. But here's something else about the tabulators: On the QDL, there are only about six tab stops that have to be slid to their designated spots--reminiscent of the old Underwood 5 tab stops (of which there were about six). The QR has a setup a lot like the upright machines--a tab stop rack, but instead of being keyset, it uses a lever which accomplishes the same thing in clearing and setting tabs. It also looks like the Royal performs a bit slower than the Remington--and Remingtons in general are slow enough as it is--especially their upright electrics. The Remington is also slightly bulkier and heavier, but if you have enough room, this one should do well. I've owned both brands, and, truth be known, there is six of one, half a dozen of another.
