Summary: I carry this with me wherever I go. It is helpful and fits well in what I use as a wallet, a type of small purse carrying all my discount cards and ID. It's easy to use and it calculates tax much easier than the basic calculators I usually use.
Summary: I'm not a professional financial expert, but wanted a calculator for figuring out investment savings as well as loan payments for things that I may buy or sell. This Canon calculator fits the bill to a T. It has a large display and is easy to use as it just about walks you through each calculation. It's nice not having to dig out the instruction manual each time you want to do a financial calculation.
Summary: I purchased two of them for the price.. and am VERY disappointed. The overall design is okay and it is small and light, two positives. However, the TMV software process is counter intuitive, and requires serious studying before you can call yourself competent. For example just to get a loan payment for $5,000 over 5 years at 6% is so complicated to do I gave up trying.
Summary: It is an attractive size, light weight, and useable with a small repair and user manual download. If it had been expensive I would drop the rating to 2 stars but for under $8.00 not bad. I removed the battery activation tab and entered a number, then a function, and when I started to enter the second number the first one flickered and returned to zero.
It is just what I was looking for (once you know how)

Summary: I was looking for a calculator to do Loan payment calculations (for buying a car or furniture etc.) and it had to be simple and easy to use - I had an ativa Financial it worked for me, but the display failed. Tried Victor V12 and its a mess. This one is compact and yet has big numbers (so I can read without my glasses) But initially looked complicate too.
Summary: this calculator looks more like a womans makeup compact. but once opened it is unmistakable a business INSTRUMENT and not a run of the meal adding machine. everything about this calculator is well done. from case to key layout. it does it all! from simple math to any advance math a person would want. all business calculations can be done on this compact machine. it was way over my head in what all it is capable to doing.
