The calculator arrived in a short time and in good working order
22 February 2015
Summary: The calculator arrived in a short time and in good working order, but the manual and quick start guide were in Spanish. Not very helpful when you're trying to get started on a new calculator. Luckily manuals are easy to find online.
Made me feel bad that the calculator was smarter than me
28 July 2014
Summary: Very advanced calculator. I bought it for my college algebra class, but it was so difficult to figure out that by the time I did my class was almost over. Directions didn't help me much, had to use YouTube mostly. Made me feel bad that the calculator was smarter than me.
Summary: One problem I have with this calculator, that I very much hope corrects itself once it gets broken in, is that when you push the buttons fairly quickly (when entering 100 pushing the zero twice quickly) the second number doesn't register.
Summary: unable to download drivers for windows8,calculator work ok,software is also not downloadable to pc. software only works with windows7 .hp online has no current updates. please consider this model.
TI-89 better calculator than the HP50g for complex numbers
13 August 2013
Summary: If you are interested in complex numbers in any way, the TI-89 Titanium is a better choice because it has complex functions that are easy to access and use -- cSolve, cFactor and cZeros for example -- which the 50g does not.
Summary: but the issue I have with this one is that it requires two different types of batteries and the four AAA batteries run down frequently. So frequently, I have to carry replacements in case they run down during tests (this actually happened and I was glad I had replacement batteries).
