Summary: The Casio Algebra FX 2.0 Plus is faster and more advanced than the Ti-8X series in every way. The buttons are much nicer to use and much more responsive than the TI buttons. The graphics are much better and the graphing functions is easier to navigate. The worst part about TI calculators is that you're waiting forever when scrolling across a graph because the CPU just can't keep up. This is not the case with the Casio.
Summary: I bought this to be able to show work for my nspire cas. Casio is set up differently but it is pretty easy to use and it show each step of the problem and you just input your variables. The Casio FX 2 is more affordable than other algebra calculators and the step by step tutor puts it in my top two because in school we need to show our work for some problems even though we can use CAS calculators.
Summary: It's a good product overall for maths explanations, as also for algebra calculations. I've seen some things about the short-lifepan memory, but as i know casio solved that issue and 100000 write cycles it's very long enought. It can be added language apps, as well other apps and also developing in assembler your own apps. A great machine for professors, explainers and development engineers.
Summary: I have owned 4 Casio graphing calculators (including this AFX 2.0 and the AFX 2.0+) and a TI 89 Titanium. I've also used the HP 50, the TI 83/84 calculators. The Casio AFX 2.0 is one of the best calculators I have ever had or used. Compared to the 83/84 series it is, in my opinion, superior. While other students struggled to figure out how to use their TI 83/84, I was getting results.
Summary: Students can study how to solve algebra problems as ALGEBRA FX 2.0 PLUS shows each step to arrive at the final solution, in a similar way as a teacher does it in class. For students in any field, but especially math and sciences, Casio's FX 2.0 algebra graphing calculator is a problem-solving tool with features for storing, graphing, and analysis using the computer algebra systems, programming, statistical functions, and many other features.
