It Was Old and Crusty
Christina Queen, Amazon
4 October 2013
Summary: If I was told that the item was old and had writing all over it, I would have reconsidered it. The price had me interested and the cases aren't at all expensive. If I had been informed up front AND purchased the case it STILL would've been a nice price. BUT....since you took SO long to ship my item THOUGH I paid for express delivery AND the item had corrosion in the battery area...I declined doing anymore business with Amazon!
Summary: The screen on the calculator is cracked. It is not any good. When it came to the house it was packaged just fine but upon opening, installing batteries it became apparent that the screen was messed up.
Summary: Make sure you have a lot of time before you need this product. It took me several complaints to actually get the product shipped. This was a horrible experience, but after over 2 weeks of waiting it looks like the thing should be here tomorrow. I only hope quality of calculator is better than service. I'm not expecting a lot, but when you advertise a product as "like new condition" than it should be in at least good condition.
Summary: IT DOESNT EVEN WORK..ARE YOU KIDDING ME? IM A STUDENT I BOUGHT THIS BECAUSE YOU SAID IT WORKS! IT DOESNT ALLOW ME TO TYPE ANY NUMBERS... WHEN RECEIVED BATTERIES WERE DEAD SO I COULD NOT SEE IF IT WORKED. I GOT BATTERIES AND IT DOESNT NOT WORK.... I HAVE BEEN WAITING 2 WEEKS AND WENT TWO WEEKS OF CLASS AND NOW I HAVE NO MONEY TO BUY A CALCULATOR AT ALL. HOW COUD YOU SELL SOMETHNG THAT DOESNT WORK.
Summary: I brought this calculator for an Elementary Statistics Course I was taking. The calculator looked cool and no one had one like mine, but after about 2 months, it would just blink out whenever I was working on it. I changed the batteries, tried to reload the programs on it, called customer support for Texas Instruments, and even went as far as to get an electronics technician to look at it. Nothing helped.
Summary: I paid for two day shipping because I needed this for an exam since I recently lost mine and it didn't arrive until over a week after my exam was over. The calculator was damaged and wasn't even worth the money. The seller never contacted me to apologize for the extreme delay. Save your money and go to someone else!
