It works fine, no batteries required and is simple to use
1 week ago
Summary: I bought it since my class specifically requires this version. It works fine, no batteries required and is simple to use. However, make sure you're inputting the numbers correctly. I have to double check the work a few times because I can't key in the numbers too fast or it won't register. The decimal is also slightly too small, but it's noticeable. Overall, it's a great calculator for simple calculations.
Summary: Texas Instruments has led the industry in powerful calculators for decades. This tool does not disappoint. We bought a pair of TI machines, with similar capacity, back in the late '70s for about $400.00 apiece - and, for our engineers, that was a bargain. It marked the end of the slide rule. Now, these things (solar powered, even) can be had on the used market for less than ten bucks. Amazing!
Summary: The price is hard to beat. And it's a calculator that's simple and does why I would want it for. HOWEVER, I bought a used one and once I got it, it doesn't work! The screen is messed up and it doesn't display the numbers properly, and most of the buttons don't even work! I understand it may be used, but a product that is nearly broken should not be sold!
Excerpt: I chose this calculator because the price was good, it was on sale. However, when my son took it out of the package, it would not turn on. I had to exchange it for another so he didn't have it to start school. I hope it holds up. I guess you get what you pay for.
Summary: At first I bought it because it was in used very good condition. However, when I received that, it was never considered as very good. It was just fair. There are some scratches at the cover, and even on the screen! Besides, the cover is very loose, and you have to hold it every time you plug numbers into the calculator. Well, consider the money I paid, I won't complain too much; however, you will still feel like you are lied on the "very good condition".
