HP 50g - Take a Pass on this.

D. Anderson, Amazon
27 September 2014
  • Summary: I bought this calculator to replace my HP 33 which had keyboard problems after heavy use for a number of years. My needs had changed since I bought the 33, and so I purchased an HP 50g. I knew I needed the USB connection to my Dell Latitude computer using Windows 8.1 to program the calculator.

Poor quality and difficult to operate

SnapDuck, Amazon
28 August 2013
  • Summary: - Very cheap plastic - Thin screen cover - Battery door comes off too easily - Poor user interface - Too many button pushes to accomplish a task The older HP48__ calculators are much better. I returned this item and purchased a used HP48GX. I am now much happier.

Lag in pressing buttons

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 August 2012
  • Summary: I became very frustrated pressing buttons in quick sequence and it not keeping up with my entries. I have to repress buttons to get them entered. I have never seen this before in a calculator. I ended up giving to my son for school. Maybe he'll have better luck. Try the 48g.

  • Summary: Calculator would be fine, but it has very poor response on the keys. Very disappointing overall. I previously owned the HP 48G and this calculator doesn't measure up.

HP 50g: Could be better

Steve, Amazon
14 May 2012
  • Summary: Next to the computer, a calculator receives a lot of my time. With that said I spend more time using a calculator than I do watching TV and I take my calculator to bed with me (to crunch numbers, of course!

not really great

Joseph D. Garcia, Amazon
2 June 2011
  • Summary: The display is not easily read. The background and figures are not sufficiently contrasted in the calculator. There was no documentation save a quick start brochure. For a scientific instrument this is not desirable. I was able contact HP and download proper documentation. It is available gratis.

Lacks adequate documentation

Richard O. Hammer, Amazon
19 November 2010
  • Summary: The calculator itself is probably a fine instrument. It may be great for users who have already learned somehow to use it. It may be fine for users who do not need to use its advanced features. But if you need help in learning how to use its advanced features, documents supplied by HP are poor aids.
