Summary: Update: An employee at the HP Calculator Group has responded, "we are aware of the issue". Nothing has been said about what HP will do to fix/ replace these calculators. The following is my review: Unfortunately, I have to report that this calculator and it's successor, the HP 30b have a bug.
Summary: Upon recieving my new calculator I went to use it for a real estate class I was taking. Immediately after turning it on and trying to get the functions to work I realized that it was not like the versions I had used previously. Instead, you had no way of knowing what you hit previously.
Summary: The keypad is absolutely horrible. Otherwise, the calculator is great. It has a lot of features including the normal, chi-sq distribution and others. If you don't need these extra features (that the 12c doesn't have),don't buy this calculator.
Summary: My 10-year-old HP 10b died. I assumed another HP would be comparable. Rude awakening. The good news: it calculates faster. The bad: the buttons and the form. The buttons give you get zero tactile verification so you have to look at the screen every entry. The form?
Summary: i bought this expecting a good calculator and what i got was a big dud. the keys don't have a good tactile feel at all, and worse yet, you have to press hard for them to work and then sometimes they don't work.
Summary: Shuts off.. this is 2nd one I've owned. It shuts off all the time in the middle of entering data!! Extremely frustrating especially if you are inputting lots of data... Threw away the first one.... 2nd I use only if I have too..
Very functional calculator but feels a little cheap

Summary: The calculator has all financial functions and most of the scientific features making it the one calculator to carry. Not for heavy engineering though. It feels a little cheap when compare to my hp32S calculators.
Summary: I have used HP financial calculators for many years and own four. Other than the presence of RPN, there is nothing recognizable about an HP product in this calculator. The mix of functions appealed to me because it took some of the most frequently needed functions and put it under one hood.
