A very valuable instrument at an extremely reasonable price.

Summary: I have been trying to teach myself business statistics with textbooks purchased through Amazon. This wonderful instrument not only simplifies and streamlines computations, but also helps me organize my thoughts. The sole fly in the ointment is the digital user manual.
Summary: I love the line of RPN calculators from HP. Mine that I had through college finally gave out, so I got this one. Took me a little be to figure out how to put the mode calculator into RPN mode (that's reverse postfix notation - not reverse polish notation!). Once I got that then I was much happier!
Summary: I was using a Casio graphing calculator when I finally maxed out its capabilities and had to look for another. This cost a third of the comparable TI model and works great. The manual could use some work but using the functions is easy to figure out and learning how to program special functions are...
Summary: I use HP calculators at work and this one is very good. i particularly like the placement of the enter button. I have purchased an extra one for backup since they are priced at a big discount now.
Summary: Do not buy HP calculators manufactured in China. The keys only work when they want. I always bought HP calculators including those made in Singapore. They had great quality. But these Chinese HP are a disappointment. If you do not want to have hassle, then do what I do: buy a Texas calculator.
Summary: I have used these since the original "48G" came out. I bought this for a family member since I have had such great performance out of my original model. This is a LOT of graphing power for the buck. Since 1974 I have owned many different HP calculators. Not one of them has ever let me down.
Summary: i bought this calculator for my pre-calc course in college. this calculator has a ton of features and its a must for any engineering/mathematician student. the only thing i found that could be a problem is how to access its features. you will need the manual for that part.
Summary: I had the old 48G and loved it. Actually I loved everything about it, but had to get a new one when the "on" button gave up after 18 years. So, I looked around some and found this one used for a great price and bought it. It's a good calculator but the buttons are its weakest point by far.
