Finally pitched it!!

Scott Johnsen, Amazon

  • Summary: I have a 12C that is over 15 years old that works great. Bought a new one for work. The new one shows "PR ERROR" all the time. There is some guidance out there about pulling out the batteries & using a paperclip to reset it. Seems ridiculous but I tried it and it worked for maybe a day or so.

  • Summary: My first HP12C calculator, which I purchased in 1998/1999, was perfect until someone stole it 4 years ago.

A 12C indeed but don't expect the same quality as your old one!

David Noel, Amazon

  • Summary: While I and thousands of others were delighted when HP decided to bring back the 12C, they unfortunately, (like nearly all tech companies today), elected to diminish the build quality in these new units. My 12C from the 90's has a sturdy button response while the new one feels "clicky" and cheap .

  • Summary: This product was purchased as a Christmas gift for my son. It was to replace his HP 12C which died peacefully after many years of faithful service. After paying his respects it was his fondest wish to acquire an identical Calculator to carry on a long standing relationship that meant so much to him...

Buy a Superior USA Made Model for 1/2 the Cost.

  • Summary: This is a marvelous calculator. I've had one since 1988. Learn to use RPN (Reverse Polish Notation) and the "stack" of 4 registers and you will never go back to "dumbo" calculators again (I'm sorry, but you will quickly become a calculator snob and think of folks who don't use RPN and a stack as...

  • Summary: I purchased it to replace the same unit that I have used for over 10 years. It has not worked properly since the day I received it. I shows "pr error" when turned on and takes several attempts to get it working.

Much worse than the one I replaced after 40 years.

Richard H. Vincent, Amazon
2 January 2015
  • Summary: Within less than a year, with only minimal use, elements of the display failed, making it impossible to tell whether the two of the numbers were 3s, 5s, or 8s. Makes it pretty much useless.

  • Summary: I have had issues with this calculator. It frequently shows an error code, which I clear. It comes back. I think the quality of this unit is suspect... Beware!

It was suggested as the best one while I was in college

Sandy BR, Amazon

  • Summary: My old HP 12C lasted for 30 years, and I had no problems at all with it. It was just time to replace it. The new one that I purchased is starting to have calculation problems already (in 9 months time). It is the only financial calculator that I have ever used.
