Summary: A very handy everyday calculator !! I just lost the one I've carried for three years. I like it so much I bought two more so I have a spare if I lose it again. (I lay stuff down and forget. Old age I guess..) Be assure that for everyday use few calculators will surpass this handy folding calculator.
Summary: I bought this for my wife. She needed a smaller calculator for carrying in her purse. This is very small when closed and when opened for use, the keyboard and display are both a reasonable size. The folding design also protects both while not in use.
if you try to do it your self it will break easily. I would suggest you buy another calculator

Summary: it will do what it says it will do only to replace the battery it says you have to take it to a authorized dealer to change it . if you try to do it your self it will break easily . I would suggest you buy another calculator . it is true the display is large and easy to read but the buttons are small and not for a older person. the solar power works well but if the battery is dead it makes it harder to read. this gets a BIG THUMBS DOWN .
Summary: Love this calculator. Bought it to replace the exact same model. The old one I had lasted for almost a year till I accidently dropped a 25 pound weight on it by accident. For the price its very nice. Great design, feels just right to use with both hands, comfortable and easy. Easy to use one handed as well if need be. Keys are easy to use, easy punching in the numbers. Display window is big enough to see without squinting your eyes or use magnifier.
Works fine, just wish the top would stay open on ...

Summary: It's an OK calculator, nothing fancy. Use it to balance my check book. Works fine, just wish the top would stay open on an angle. It is either open all the way or closed, the picture makes you think you can adjust the way it is open, at least mine doesn't.
Excerpt: This calculator is really great. It is the size of a credit card and doesn't weigh much, but the numbers are large and easy to read. I know most people can do calcs on their phones, but the numbers can be hard to see. This is easy to throw in my purse and really comes in handy for figuring out the per unit price at the store. Also, the kids like to use it and at this price, I don't worry about them breaking it.

Summary: Because the top lid is designed to be unscrewed to add a battery backup, if desired, the clamshell action will cause the top lid to separate when opening the calculator, as there isn't a wide enough ledge to grip without interfering with the backing. Because we had no need for battery backup, we solved this with some super glue, but I would call that a design flaw. Otherwise, it works like any standard calculator should.
Summary: Bought 6, all have been working great for over a month, the kids always seem to take them, move them and loose them so I bought a bunch, seems I can always find one for now at least. As one other reviewer said, the back does not stand up on its own as shown in the photo but it doesn't really matter, it works good.
Summary: Nice calculator. The first one I bought was defective, but I sent it back and they replaced it free of charge. The second one I got works flawlessly. I am very happy with it. It is a nice size that I can keep in my scrubs and take to the floor in my nursing program.
