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.
Very functional calculator but feels a little cheap
20 December 2010
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.
