Summary: VERY nice build quality in my opinion! I'm a stickler for shiny things and this sure fits the bill. I am an upper division accounting student and I use this calculator at my desk at home. At school, I use a SHARP EL-334T because it... you know, has a battery, and I need something more dependable in the middle of a test. This Canon calculator though, has much larger buttons, a premium feel in every way, a much easier to read display, and most importantly, a "00" key!
Summary: There are only 2 things wrong with this calculator: 1) It's too heavy and, oh yeah 2) IT'S PURPLE! Yes, I knew that when I ordered it, but it seemed cool in theory. Now I find that purple is completely foreign to all the other items on my desk, including my desk, so it sticks out like a sore thumb. The extra weight was added for effect, but making it heavy doesn't add to it's appeal to me. For folks who equate weight with quality, perhaps bulkiness serves some purpose.
This calculator works so well and is nice to look at
