Reviews and Problems with HP 50g Graphing Calculator
Showing 1-10 of 50
Erroneous answer prompted when programming an example.

Summary: Shipped back this unit due to erroneous calculating answer. I learned this model was modified for the insurance industry. Even the vendor, at the time, was unaware of this. The best thing to do when purchasing any calculator from a non-certified dealer is to go over the instruction/user manual.
Bad key calculator, great disappointment, time to lock to new horizons.

Summary: I'm a fan of HP product calculators. I have the 49g+, and the new HP Prime. Great Calculators. I say I'm a Fan, but may be I should say I was a fan of HP: the culprit, my ex-new HP50g. I bought this product thinking it was a great product. May be this calculator could be great if manufacturer sites were not in China. I do not really know. Anyway HP is the last responsible of the quality of the products. I'm sorry about the catarsis. Anyway, I unpack it on November 18.
Has a problem registering number buttons at times.....I dont trust it.

Summary: Very frustrated. Occasionally when I press numbers too fast they do not register. (when I say "fast" I mean normal speed, I am not a speed typer at all) I am an engineer and have had many different HP calculators but this is the most disappointing. Functionality is probably as advertised and I am sure it will do much more than I will ever need but bottom line...I do not trust it.
Summary: I do not know as I keep buying HP products. A month with the calculator, just two uses, and it stopped working. The power button does not respond, I did everything listed in the support page and nothing. I am Disappointed!
Summary: I thought I bought a black Calculator and received a Blue. The site was showing the black and in any moment warned me that I would be receiving a blue. Now I am in Brazil stucked with it. Very disappointing.
Summary: I have used HP calculators for years with no quality control issues, but I was disappointed with the 50G. The right and left shift keys did not work making the calculator all but useless. I assume this is an isolated case but I would think that the factory would perform some sort of quality control check that would catch this kind of malfunction.
