shocked at poor quality

longtimefan, Hewlett-Packard

  • Summary: I am a HP fan, with HP laptop and desktops, and have used an HP 12C for more than two decades. I lost my original HP12C less than a year ago and had to replace it with another HP 12C, but the new one's screen goes blank unexpectedly when imputing numbers and prints error messages when there was no error and does this so often now that it must be replaced in less than a years ownership.

A sturdy well built calculator that stands the test of time.

  • Summary: I've used a HP 12C since I was 12 years old! The RPN does have a bit of a learning curve but once you master it you will prefer it to algebraic entry. Very sturdy construction that holds up well under continuous use. I still have my original which is over 20 years old and it continues to work great. I bought a second one because it was reasonably priced and it's nice to have an extra just in case.

I never go to a business meeting without my HP12C

  • Summary: Financial calculators HP12C are world wide renowned by their users for over 30 years, so there is not too much to say about the product. It's quality and functionality have already been proven over time. Despite its age, it is still very updated and very practical for financial calculations. I would definitely buy another one if necessary.

Great calculator with reverse polish notation

  • Summary: The 12C is an old classic, this is my third or fourth buy of this type of calculator. Not for those who are not used to the reverse polish notation,...
  • Pros: Reverse polish notation, great key action
  • Cons: Markings wear off, used to be made in the USA, now made in China

and I'm glad I did

  • Summary: I've owned the Texas Instrument TI BA II Professional calculator for years and decided to try the HP 12C, and I'm glad I did. I find the HP 12C much more user friendly and there seems to be more helpful sites to guide you through the learning process than Texas Instruments offers. I am very satisfied with the calculator.

So far, so good

  • Excerpt: This is the workhorse of my business...as with many bankers and most appraisers. Unfortunately the last two units I purchased BOTH ended up with display problems. I would be able to see only the upper or lower half of the digits (doesn't make math any easier, let me tell you!). I looked everywhere for HP assistance; most blogs just reported "no help" when they encountered the same problem. I had my first HP12C for 10 years with no issues. I lost it.

Great Product

Barbara, Staples
12 July 2014
  • Excerpt: In my opinion this is the best of the financial calculators. The HP10 that I work with is a good calculator but isn't as good as the HP12c. The HP12c uses RPN instead of algebraic logic which is easy to learn and much more efficient when using chain calculations. The TI financial calculators that I've used require too many steps that can be difficult to remember making the possibility of errors much greater.
