Summary: I own a version of this calculator from around 1995 and another from around 2000, both of which used the same processor chip. The processor chip is excellent. The processor chips is different and better than most calculators because only solar powered it includes three memories and it includes some basic scientific constants. The problem with the calculator is that with the exact same number of buttons (keys), it has grown in size, making it less usable.
Summary: I have had an old version of this model for over 20 years and was thrilled to find out I could still get it!!!! I recommend it to my students, much more user friendly that the readily available models in the big box stores!
Summary: I'm a 90s kid so TI-83 is my baby. But I had to get this for the FE/EIT exam since they wouldn't allow programmable type calculators like the TI-83. It did the job then. I've never used it since. I think my mom has it.
