Summary: When I saw this TI-30X in pink - I just had to have it. This calculator is great for kids in late elementary through early middle school- I have had these calculators in my classroom for several years - in basic black, of course. They last and last. I love having this bright pink one in my classroom - that way everyone knows it's MINE - and I don't have to worry so much about their little hands and where they've been.
Summary: I wish I could give negative stars. The keys stick constantly and don't always enter a numbe when you push them. If you don't push the keys slowly and watch the screen carefully as you use this calculator you will invariably get a wrong answer. Also, it has no simple change sign key--it is totally annoying to have to press a couple of keys to change the sign of a number. It has kind of a cool color though.
Summary: Does the job, although I somehow feel the FX-991 MS had a much more intuitive key design. Also, my Clear button is somewhat misaligned and takes a couple of tries everytime to clear the screen and hence the four stars.
Summary: I love this calculator i use it everyday! Sometimes I mess up with the buttons but all you have to do is learn the button placement. Everything is perfect and I'm still discovering things this bad boy does! Also it didn't come in the floral pattern at the top, but I didn't really care.
Summary: purchased for my daughter for advanced math program. Was used for 6 months, stored for summer and used again in fall for two months until buttons stopped working. Understand it's not expensive, but with the cover, that should protect the buttons and it should not have to be replaced every 9 months--too late to return, but no longer any good. Purchased another this fall for my son (in green) hoping it lasts longer than 9 months.
Summary: The calculator did not work at all. It was advertised as new but when I received it I could tell it was used. It was not in it's original packaging and it was dirty. Most of the buttons did not work.
