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".
Summary: Honestly I bought these for the price/value. Having to buy 2, and 1 of my kids is the humanoid of Dory the fish in Finding Nemo, lost in a breaths time. So I didn't want to spend a lot of money to only have it lost. The kids are not complaining - so I guess it's a win!
Summary: I bought this because it was listed as the only accepted calculator for my calculus class, but turns out I didn't need it. I have used 30xa-II since high school, and feel like this models key commands are extremely confusing. I give it five stars because it does everything it supposed to, just because I struggle with it doesn't mean it is a bad calculator. However, it confusing if you are used to other TI models.
Summary: I've used variants of this calculator for years for work in R&D. I've looked at others but always come back to the TIs. I like that pi is easily accessible on this one. As someone else mentioned, there is no hexadecimal, unfortunately. I use a computer for anything more complicated than a quick calculation so I don't need (or want) multiple lines of display or graphing. Don't really need the statistical features.
Excerpt: I purchased the Texas Instruments TI-30Xa for the amount of functions available for the lowest price. This is it and more. My needs are modest and outside of basic arithmetic and some trig functions, the TI-30Xa is more than sufficient. I can only say great things about this little powerhouse of a tool.
