Summary: Haven't had this calculator long enough to give a proper review. But so far so good. I prefer a white to a black background. Easier to see the extra functions above the buttons. On the display, it has dot matrix on top line and solid on bottom line. The solid line is easier to see. But dot matrix seems to be what most calculators are using. All of the four line calculators that I'm aware of use dot matrix. As well as most two line. The buttons work fine.
Summary: I love HP calculators. My HP 48SX Engineering Calculator died a quiet death after 25 years of heavy use. I wonder if HP puts the same quality into their new generation of calculators. No batteries is an excellent option. Would have gotten 5 stars if I didn't have to stare to view the tiny decimal point and commas. An excellent calculator otherwise.
Summary: This is an excellent calculator. I use it as my first choice whenever I have to solve a scientific math, electrical, or general radio circuit or radio wave transmission problem. I bought three (3) different calculators at the same time -- because my older one died unexpectedly -- to prepare for an upcoming FCC Exam. I used it to pass my FCC Amateur Radio Technician, General, and Extra Exams.
Summary: Yes Very good product. - Why you bought it (to help my girlfriend in college) - What you like most about it (convenience and speed of calculations) - What you dislike about it (not yet found something that does not like) - Whether or not you would buy the product again (I will not buy because they do not use more after college) Tks
Summary: This calculator is really good to use and very good for its price. Its comes in a rare white color and does everything and normal calculator does and more. Also HP makes it and Hp is a really reliable company to trust. This calculator is easy to use and it's good for any students that is between the grade 6-12 to use this calculator as well as college as well.
Summary: This item was marked down in the store when I bought it. It did good for about a week. Needless to say, as of right now, I can not read the characters on the screen. This was a waste of money because I had to go back to the store and purchase another calculator.
Pros: It was a great price, it was actually marked down in the store
Summary: What a piece of junk. My past two HP's lasted for years. I thought this one was a bargin, but what can I say. I got what I paid for. I would say this is a prime example of shipping manufacturing offshore and the kind of junk that is the result. Spend more money and buy the older style. I am use to the RPN or I would buy some other brand, which is really to bad. I have been an HP Calculator user sunce 1980..
Cons: It lasted about 10 days before the display died
