the key color combination is just impossible for me to read in all but the best of conditions

Summary: This really should have been a knockout five star product. But truthfully, I had to consider giving it either the four or three stars. I think that there are two main issues with this calculator: Been using this calculator for a couple of months, and probably should have waited for a hardware revision. The first issue that I have with this calculator - I'm having a hell of a time reading the keys.
Summary: Used it on test and i freezes sometimes, you could guess how weird you feel when the time is going and your calculator is freezed. From an engineer student. PS: The calculator has a tiny hole for reset if it freezes as long as you get with you something to reset it just in case you wouldnt have problems. but considering this is a top of the line calculator brand new it shouldnt freeze. Maybe a software update would help....
If you're an HP 50G user, you may be disappointed with several changes or missing key functions

Summary: On the positive the unit is beautiful, fast and has a color touch screen, but If you're an HP 50G user, you may be disappointed with several changes.or missing key functions. • No Undo key • Changing Units is clumsy. You used to be able to shift and a hit a different unit soft key to convert between units. Now you have to enter many keys to do the same thing. There are no soft keys used for Units, you must use a menus to do anything.
Summary: This is a lovely calculator, but it doesn't do ANOVA, chi-squared, etc. the same way TI calculators do, if at all. It appears that you can perform some limited calculations, but it's difficult, and I don't think it's even possible to do the same things you could with a TI. I thought such a high-end calculator would do anything I needed it to (I'm not planning on programming it or doing anything too crazy), but apparently not.
Muy linda, pero le falta un poco. - Pretty, but lacks a little.

Summary: Spanish Al abrir la caja y ver la calculadora a uno ya le gusta. Muy fina, esbelta, liviana. El metal cepillado le queda excelente. Las teclas bien, son agradables al presionarlas. Pero pésimo contraste en el sector de los números. La pantalla táctil responde bien, buena resolución y bien en los colores. Debería ser oleofóbico. Al entrar a manipularla se siente bien: rápida, fluida.
The best & fastest calculator for any application, but especially for complex systems evaluation! (3 weeks in...)

Summary: I started with HP-45 in the mid-70s and own at least one example of each generation of HP & TI calculators from then till now. For "simple" and application specific daily use, the HP-15c or HP-12c Platinum are my goto tools, but the HP-50G had been my main high end calculator... This HP Prime blows even the 50G away for speed and relative ease of use.
