Summary: HP-30B Business Professional Calculator I use this calculator a lot at work. It's quick and accurate and you don't have to change to a function like you do on a computer. It's a calculator and that's its sole purpose.
Cheapest HP RPN, does have basic scientific functions.

Summary: I'm an engineer who has used a HP RPN calculators for most of my life at this point, and can't stand to use a standard calculator. I have an HP-48sx (and a backup gx) but wanted something smaller, lighter, to carry around. This appears to be the cheapest RPN calculator HP sells currently.
Summary: What you're buying is hardware; for that it's good. Buy it and then convert it to the WP-34s. You will then have the finest in handheld number-crunching nerd heaven. If you are not familiar with the WP-34s you can download a WP-34s emulator for iOS from the App Store and try it out on your iPhone.
Summary: This review is for those that are interested in knowing more about the aesthetics of this calculator (as I know there are many die-hard HP calculator collectors out there). I picked this up for a really good price elsewhere.
Poweful calculator although it lacks HP`s quality.

Summary: This calculator is poweful enough to go with you through most of the school,as it has not only business function but also basic scientific. Other features: - RPN option - programmable. What I disliked from it: - no manual: you have to print it from the website: awful.
Summary: The calculator also works reasonably well as a scientific calculator having essentially the same functions as the original HP-35, though most requiring the shift key, which isn't as bad as it sounds. I did discover a bug, which I had not seen previously reported, which is more annoying than serious.
Summary: I needed a replacement for my HP 10B after many many years of faithful service. I wanted another HP product. The HP-30B is way more horsepower than I will likely ever need. In my world I tend to do more complicated financial or mathematical work on a spreadsheet.
