Amazon.com Review

If you bought yourself a financial calculator during the 1980s, chances are it was this bad boy. Nothing has changed since its introduction--it still uses Reverse Polish Notation (RPN), is easy and versatile in programming, and has a thin, sturdy casing. Certainly, there's been newer, fancier calculators introduced since, but there's something to be said for the quality of classics.

The HP 12C's functions include all the basics--such as calculating APR, NPV, and IRR--and statistics are a snap. For students new to financial calculators, this is an excellent place to start. For the most part, the manual reads like a minitextbook, walking you through sample problems and situations followed by graphs and tables demonstrating the technique--and you can even check your results. The section on creating programs does seem to be written for the technically ignorant, addressing in detail how you could possibly benefit from using programs, but it'll still help you get the job done.

In general, it's a bit slower than newer models, just like last year's computer isn't as speedy as today's new release. On the plus side, it's just 3 by 5 inches and slips easily into a pocket. The bottom is printed with a few little cheat notes for common functions, which is nice for quick reference. The HP 12C's one-year warranty and available tech-support line offer reassurance this little workhorse will continue to be an industry standard for years to come. --Jill Lightner

5-0 out of 5 stars Venerable, Compact, Elegant
I first began using this 'calc' in 1986. A commercial realtor friend told me this was what "everyone" (everyone to be taken seriously) used. I carried it on vacation, to church, to the supermarket, and everywhere, determined to learn in any spare moment its secrets and work its magic. The 12C's flat profile and compact size slips easily into a sportcoat pocket and you can rotate it continually in one hand just for fun! The User's Manual was not especially user friendly, but it was (is still?) a key to the treasure. It also can be easily slipped into a pocket, but I found the glossy pages annoyingly difficult to pencil-in notes.HP also makes the cheaper 10B II calc that the College for Financial Planning (CFP) recommends for their coursework. I often use it at work, and when teaching at a local college I am not inclined to require students buy the more expensive HP 12C. The more expensive HP 17B II leaves me cold. There is an elegance to the 12C that has not been surpassed. I own two 12C's just in case one is damaged! The Polish notation ('throw mother from the train a kiss' viz. 6, ENTER, 2, + {answer} 8 )is an eccentricity (like Uncle Fred's table manners) that is quickly embraced...a price for membership to the club. HP actually makes a version of the 12C that allows you to change this feature, but my guess is that it has never gained popularity.

5-0 out of 5 stars You really don't need it
I have had an HP 12C for 20 years.Yes it is wonderful calculator but you really shouldn't spend the extra money for it.

It is expensive because it was designed for programming and elaborate cashflow analysis.Yes indeed in the early 80s people used to program 100+ step programs in to these dinky but powerful machines.Nobody would do it today. We have spreadsheets for that.

The machine uses RPN (reverse Polish notation) so you have to get used to that, it has over 30 memories (I doubt you will ever use more than 3), the anachronistic programming capability and lots of funny symbols that I don't even know what they mean.My advice is to buy the HP B10.You can get it for half the price.Yeah its not quite the status symbol the 12C is but its all that you need.

5-0 out of 5 stars I've had mine 20 years
I've had my hp 20C for 20 years.Still works great.Still does everything I want it to.

I'm stunned they still sell these things.Same design, same functionality, almost the same price (there were about $300 in 1985).What other piece of calculating electronics can claim the same thing?When these came out the Internet was called Arpa net, Personal computers came with 32k memory, floppies had 360k capacity, modems were 300 baud and nobody had "email".

5-0 out of 5 stars READ with Mr. Tirone's HP-12C Real Estate Book
I purchased this calculator some time ago but was not pleased with the manual's coverage of the field I am employed in, real estate. Then I noticed a real estate calculator book carried by amazon.com by a Mr. John A. Tirone ("Professional Real Estate Problem Solving Using the HP-12C"). I purchased the Tirone HP-12C real estate calculator book from amazon.com, best investment I have yet to make in real estate. The book is great--it covers so many topics in real estate that it is difficult to imagine a book of that level and quality being put together, especially when you take into account that the author supports his books.
Nice calcuator, but Hewlett-Packard should consider including a copy of the Tirone book along with the device.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best financial calculator ever
I'm a gread student majoring in finance and I've owned a texas financial calculator for 2 years now.For some reason, I've never been able to master all the functions in the texas without keeping the instruction manual open.I finally decided to give the hp 12 c a try and am really thrilled with the results.The HP 12 c is very easy to master - took me 2 hours to go through the manual and understand everything and I dont carry the manual around anymore.Its made my life much simpler! ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Terrible Usability, I Don't Like
Nice things about this calculator are it's good looks, simple interface, and price. But, maybe it's just too simple. Personally, I feel this calculator is not pleasant to use.

CONS:
1. Awkward viewing angle. The LCD is positioned such that you can view it only if your sitting back. Forget about looking straight down while solving problems. You'll be greeted by a terribly dim display.
2. Button response is bad. For a $30 calculator, I expected the buttons to be at least decent. They're not. If you're like me, and are capable of quick entry (sometimes even with 2 hands) and enjoy responsive buttons, you'll be disappointed. The buttons are not firm to the touch and just feel cheap.
3. Lacks slightly more advanced features. While the interface is easy to use and the basic features expected of a financial calculator are there, I think TI has room for some more. For example, there is no Option Pricing feature. That would have been great.

For students (like me) who have worshipped the TI-8x's, the BAII is just horrible to even touch. Nonetheless, most people will find this calculator to be decent, at best. Really, don't expect any surprises, as this is as basic as it gets. For real value, perhaps invest a little more in an HP.

4-0 out of 5 stars A first look at the New Look TIBA2+
VALUE PERFORMER GETS NEW LOOK
BA2+ users may like to know that Texas Instruments has released a "new look" TI BA2+ (allow me to call it it BA2+N), which may come with just more than cosmetic improvements over the popular BA2+.

IMPROVED LCD DISPLAY
I was able to observed from a short distant away that the LCD display of the BA2+N,is clearer and more contrasty than the orginal BA2+ which I own. TI gets a thumbs up for doing this improvement quietly plus giving a facelift to this already highly regarded value for money business-financial electronic calculator.

DID TEXAS INSTRUMENT KILLED SOME BUGS IN THE BA2+?
Although I have not yet been able to test the BA2+N, TI may have also incorporated some improvements and killed some bugs on the popular BA2+. It is also probable that some improvements or new functions incorporated on the September 2004 released BA2+ Professional (BA2+PRO) may also have been also incorporated into the specs of BA2+N.

I would like to believe that some small but extremely annoying bugs of the "original" BA2+ has been quietly fixed on the BA2+N. In particular, I wish to see the "Reset" button nuisance which clears all user input formatting on the BA2+ has been done alway with. Most users of BA2+ would know that an accident user soft reset would return to the default Number of Periods per year P/Y to 12, this would upset the results of many TVM calculations when user has set the P/Y to "1" to use the calculator in "number of periods" instead.

BATTERY REPLACEMENT WOES ON THE BA2+
I was not able to exam a unit of the BA2+N to see if end users would still need a screw driver to unscrew and pry open the BA2+ casing just to replace the CR2032 battery. It would be nice if TI would incorporate a user accessible slide open battery compartment for the BA2+N or future upgrades of the BA2+.

MY RECOMMENDATION
Would be buyers should get hold of the BA2+N or buy the BA2+PRO if you have a bigger budget. Budget conscious users could see that for the price of a BA2+ PRO, a screw driver and spare batteries, new users could afford to purchase for themselves two sets of BA2+N.

An advantage of having a spare BA2+N set on hand is that users could free themselves from the trouble of carrying a philips screwdriver and replacement lithium batteries to important assignments or to the examination centre.

HOW DIFFERENT DOES THE BA2+N LOOKS? I have downloaded the BA2+N JPEG picture from TI's calculator site and posted it to the Amazon's picture gallery.

IMPORTANT NOTE:I have commented on the BA2+N as an end user and I don't work for TI, HP or any of the manufacturers for the products which I have used, reviewed and posted my comments on the pages of Amazon.com. It is my pleasure to be able to share my first look at the BA2+N with you, thanks for reading!

3-0 out of 5 stars CFA users Choose TI BAII Plus
This review is directed toward those taking the CFA exams.The TI BA II plus calculator is more straight forward than the HP 12C for the range of questions asked on the CFA.The BA II Plus calculates faster than the HP, and is less expensive.

If you need the button quality and durablity of the HP 12C unit, upgrade and buy the TI BA II Plus "professional" - this unit has a brushed aluminum case and buttons similar to a HP 12C and costs around $50 - similar to a HP 12C.

When doing uneven cash flow problems the registers to the TI are all labeled so you can quickly enter data giving greater confidence with improved speed to your answers for NPV and IRR calculations.

I still have two or three HP 12C's around, but they aren't as intuitive as the TI for the CFA Exam.If you are taking the exam - the TI is the way to go.

3-0 out of 5 stars man, this thing's annoying
If not for the fact that this calculator is required for the CFA i don't know why anyone would buy it.
It takes many, many keystrokes to get simple things done, and let's face it, in the real world i'd much rather work out a complex NPV calculation in excel where i can see what i'm doing step by step rather than some arcane series of keystrokes where one mispressed key will screw everything up.
Also, my unit suffered from poor battery life, which i assume is a manufacturing defect.
A word of advice for students who can use a more advanced calculator: get a ti-83 or similar, learn to use it, and you'll be much happier. I find myself using the ti-83 i got in college rather than my financial calculator all the time.

2-0 out of 5 stars Easy to make mistakes
I got this calculator free on a financial course I am taking.It is easy to use but what others say about getting wrong answers seems to be down to the operator buttons on the right hand side being out of line with the main keypad.So you have to watch what you are doing.This and the fact it seems to take so many keypresses to get anything done makes it cumbersome.It is a reasonable calculator for starting out but I would not recommend it if you are in a hurry eg. sitting an exam. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Horrible "feel" and cheap case
The buttons are horrible...I can't tell you how often I have to retype numbers because the calculator did not capture my input.The buttons have a "sticky" feel and are small.Also, the case is a cheap attempt to emulate the strength and durability of the HPs (I hate the 12C...but I think its design and durability has not yet been matched).

3-0 out of 5 stars Slow Input
This is a great calculator, but when you input numbers fast, they do not always register.If you buy this calculator, input 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, and 9 as fast as you can.You may encounter some numbers not registering even though you hear the number click (as if the number was added).This was not a problem with the BAII Plus.This is a huge disadvantage to this calculator.

5-0 out of 5 stars Major improvement from BAII Plus
Compared to BAII plus, it is much heavier with the metal cover. Too light is a disadvantage for the old model. Now, this one won't jump around when you punch the keys. The pros of HP 12C says that one is like a tank. This one is just like a samller tank, maybe.

The display is another major improvement. The view is clear and won't change for different angle. This won't be a worry on your CFA exam.

Keys are harder to punch; this is a bad feature for professionals. But it is not that bad as long as you can hear the "click", which is not that hard, the number will be there. People with less strength on their finger will complain too.

Easier to change the battery, though you might worry it is too easy. Don't open the cap too often will help. The good news is you no longer need to carry around a skrew driver on you exam day, only the battery.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great product, cheap case
OPENING NOTES:
Just to clarify, this is a financial calculator, essentially the same calculator as the "Texas Instruments BA II Plus Advanced Financial Calculator" but with a cosmetic make-over.


PROS:
- Very attractive appearance.
- Nice "firm-touch" keypad.
- A couple of additional functions (compared to the BA II Plus Advanced).


CONS:
- Leatherette soft case instead of hard case.
- Approx. $21 more (at time of writing) than BA II Plus Advanced.


REVIEW:
This is a very nice calculator.It is full-featured financial calculator with an attractive appearance.The brushed metal facehas a polished metal inset to highlight the primary financial function buttons. I like the button layout (which is the same on both the Professional and Advanced models), and preferred it over that of the HP 10bII financial calculator, which I thought had poorly-marked non-financial functions.

The calculator has a solid feel that is consistent with its metal look, and that is further reinforced by the "firm-touch" keypad.Personally, I like the feel of the firm-touch keys and prefer it over a regular keypad, as is found on the BA II Plus Advanced.

My one complaint about the BA II Plus Professional (and the reason I rated it as 4 stars instead of 5) is that it has a soft case instead of a hard case. While the soft case will help protect from superficial marring, it won't protect the calculator from impact or pressure damage, or from accidentally pressing buttons (such as "On") when carrying it.For the extra $21 more than the Advanced model, it would be nice if the Professional model came with a case that will actually protect it.


SUMMARY:
- If you plan to keep your financial calculator around for a while or will use it a lot, and want something nice, then I would recommend this calculator. (I basically think of it as an investment in something I will continue to use for several years.)

- If you think you would prefer a more firm-feeling keypad, then I would recommend this calculator.

- If you are just buying a financial calculator for a finance class and don't plan on getting much use out of it afterward, and don't need the additional functions of the Professional version (which are advertised as being "Net Future Value (NFV), Modified Internal Rate of Return (MIRR), Modified Duration, Payback, and Discount Payback"), then I would recommend saving some bucks and getting the Advanced model of the BA II Plus.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easily better than ANY current HP--and 1/2 the price!
Have been a stalwart HP financial calculator user for over two decades...started with an HP41 in college with financial templates.I always admired HPs for the durable build, ease-of-use (once you got over the RPN hurdle) and displays.I finally needed to replace my over decade old HP 12C and the newer HPs simply do not impress me.Cheaper (as in WAY cheaper!) build...the HPs that came from Malaysia were fantastic calculators...solid keystrokes, superior grade of plastics, the whole nine yards.The newer HPs are made of a plastic that is a giant step backwards.The keys are now laughable, no 'HP Feel' to them at all.

I took all of this in and thought to myself, 'I guess everything is getting cheaper, nowadays...'.Then I ran a NPV calculation at the store and was downright shocked to see it ran slower than my old HP.The one thing I thought MIGHT save the purchase (i.e. cheaper plastic but faster processor) didn't happen.I tried all of the newer HPs...the one display model of the OLDER HP12 (the non-Platinum model and still made in Malaysia) definitely runs TVM calculations quicker.This is NOT how to impress old bankers with a new product.

Time to check out the Texas Instruments BA II Plus Professional.At first glance, to an old HP user, I thought it really LOOKED TI-ish; that is to say, very non-HP.But upon pressing a key or two, I was impressed that TI at least made an attempt at obtaining the old 'HP Feel' to their keys.Not as 'pretty' as HP's angled keys, but good tactile feedback and get this:If you'll hold up the TI BA II PP horizontally and sight down the keys, you'll see they are actually angled!Nice touch, TI.

Nicely laid out TVM section (my only reason for owning a financial calculator, thus supremely important to me) and intuitive to boot.Speed of calculation simply SMOKES current HPs...there is absolutely NO CONTEST.A complex Internal Rate of Return took two to three seconds.TI hasn't been simply sitting around and 'repackaging' anything; whatever is under the hood of this calculator is current and fast.

The rest of the calculator is nicely laid out...keys are pretty much TI convention, which to me is different.I miss a prominent ENTER key.

Likes:I like TI's 'CHAIN' calculation mode.It's similar to RPN without the ENTER keystroke.Remember this if this is your first financial calculator:Most financial calculations are run in CHAIN or RPN mode (and, sadly, no, the TI doesn't support TRUE RPN), not the Algebraic Operation System (AOS).To TI's credit, the calculator defaults to CHAIN calculation (for newbies, this just means that the calculator runs the operation AS IT IS ENTERED; NOT following Algebraic heirarchy of operations).But it is nice that TI recognizes how financial people enter calculations and, unlike other TI calculators, AOS is NOT the default entry mode.

Love the fact that the compounding rate is defaulted to 1, not 12 (HPs always default to 12).Love the fact that interest is always entered as a whole interest number (it divides it for you, automatically).Good, not great, manual.Battery access is very easy.Quality looks genuinely good, but time will be the only final arbiter on this one, but the product appears to be (in my highest compliment) equal to older HPs in every respect.

Dislikes?Quibbling ones to be sure, but the compounding rate mentioned above is a pain to get too; I must have looked 30 minutes in the manual to finally find it (hint: you have to use the Down Arrow key to roll through a series of selections to get it...and it's NOT the first choice).Wish for (on all financial calculators, not just TI) normal AA or AAA batteries...why the manufacturers have to insist on the round, hearing aid style battery is beyond me.I mean, really, how big is a AAA battery?

Wish TI would step up to the plate and offer some mortgage/realty functions in a financial calculator without forcing a user to own 2 calculators.Wish it were programmable, which is just a follow-on to the mortgage/realty/specialized functions.

If TI offered this same model with enhanced functions, programmability and a normal battery, HP could give up the calculator market.

As it stands, a worthy heir to the older HP calculators.I'm sorry to see HP cheapen the product so badly, but TI will gain market share on this one.A solid keeper. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product
Despite the over-zealous negative reviews, I ordered this calculator and couldn't be happier!!! (I wonder if they work for the competition?)

I am a business school student and originally started with the TI BA2 Plus, but was terribly disappointed, so I switched to a HP calculator based on the recommendation of two professors...I am so pleased that I did!

This is a solid device and has not failed me in doing complex financial calculations.This is simply the best calculator I have used and I encourage anyone looking for a workhorse capable of doing long, intense calculations to buy it immediately!You won't be disappointed.

3-0 out of 5 stars One more gripe
Other reviewers have pointed out ways in which the 12cp falls short of the original 12c, so I won't repeat those.My gripe is that the case for the 12cp is complete crap.It's stiff and horrible.It takes considerable force to stuff the calculator into the case, whereas the old 12c case fits like a custom glove.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing....
At first glance, this thing looks great.Nice, updated design, amdthe color looks good.But then there is the Enter key "bounce."The orange function lettering is almost impossible to read.Some of the TVM calculations are slower.

It's great that they made the numbers on the display larger, but the display itself is DIMMER!Much harder to read in certain light conditions than the 12C.What were they thinking when they designed this thing???

For $19.95 this device would be a good buy.But not at the $80 that I paid before I returned it.

Do yourself a favor.Pass this one by and get the good, ol' 12C

4-0 out of 5 stars 12C Platinum is Great!
12C Platinum is way better than what the reviews say.It's classy looking and has RPN AND algebraic.My kid brother, who isn't too RPN, is already borrowing this.I keep stealing it back for its RPN features.HPjust needs to have these at the stores so that more people can view it, try it and buy it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Supposed to be new, but was sent a used model

This is the latest incarnation of a tool I've been using for a few years now.The more I use it, the more dependent I become.Provides quick, accurate answers to almost all shop problems & equations.The memory function is a little confusing at first, but practice makes perfect.Excellent tool, well worth the money.There's a pocket sized version available also, called the "Ultra Measure Master", also very handy. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Broken display turns calc into paperweight
The display started to malfunction after about eight months. HP needs to make it more durable.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor execution of a good idea.
Typical Chinese clumsiness and low quality. The on off button is too easily bumped to on, and the little sack they call a case is so tight it activates the on button.

I cannot carry it in my pocket or briefcase without turning it on and depleting the batteries, so it sits in or on my desk. I leave it out, and no one will even steal it. Both of the two I have had were intermittant. The first one had the display die, but it was replaced under warranty. Wish they had given me a TI BA II+ instead. Wish I had bought one instead.

1-0 out of 5 stars Far from the best
I bought this caluclator about one year ago.At first it worked nicely.A few days ago I went to use it and the screen was not working correcly.Characters would not show up and basically it became instantly useless.

I would not recommend this product or buy another HP calculator.For a calculator not to work correctly in such a short period oftime is in my opinion poor quality and HP's disregard for quality.

By the way, this calculator was never abused in any way.It sat in a desk with the cover on.Definitely look elsewhere.

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice calculator - when the screen works
I've own this calculator for four years and have had to replace it twice in that time because the display keeps burning out.They always work really well for me when they're new, but after about 18 months they're toast.

1-0 out of 5 stars Dissappointing quality and keypad
I bought this calculator because I wanted a 12 digit display,comma separators for multiples of a thousand, and some standard financial functions, all in a form small enough to slip in a jacket pocket. I didn't find any other brand offering a calculator with these features and I thought that HP had a good reputation.

I was very dissappointed. The keys required a lot of pressure to work and I often had to redo calculations because I had keyed too fast and one or more keys hadn't registered.

Then after a year the screen stopped working properly. I was actually pleased about this because it meant that I could replace the calculator without feeling guilty!

I'm afraid I would not recommend it to anyone. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

With the HP 17BII financial calculator, you can perform more than 250 business and statistical functions from wherever you happen to be. You can calculate loan payments, amortization, interest rates and conversion, internal rate of return, net present value, bond price and yield, depreciation, and percentages, to name only a few.

The bottom line on the two-line display shows the menu labels for the five major menus in the calculator: Financial, Business Percentages, Statistics, Time Manager, and Equation Solver. The menu keys allow you to shift between functions. The top line shows the numbers or letters you enter and the resulting calculation. Each menu has subfunctions and built-in variables for greater complexity. A beeper sounds when you press the wrong key, when an error occurs, or when you are late for an appointment.

The HP 17BII has 8,000 total bytes in RAM (6,750 bytes plus 1,250 for your built-in variables). You can monitor the available memory (both in bytes and percentages) by pressing shift-MEM. The calculator retains current functions until you press "clear data." If you accidentally shut the machine off, just turn it back on and your calculation will reappear. After 10 minutes of nonuse the calculator turns itself off, but your most recent information will still be there.

The HP financial calculator interfaces with an HP infrared printer (sold separately), allowing you to print tables, lists, and payment schedules whether you are--in a meeting or on an airplane.

A protective cover is included to keep your calculator dust-free. Batteries are already loaded, and the calculator is backed by a limited one-year warranty. --Dana Van Nest ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it, but no Trigonometric Functions
Super durable and reliable: I've had this calculator since 1992, I used it for my BA and my MSc.It has outlasted 4 laptops.
Batteries last a long time, but keep more handy.It uses LR44 (Maxell) equivalent to LR44H, L1154, A76, V13GA, LR44, AG13, PX76A, 675A, 303, G13A. 11.6x5.4 mm Size equivalent to 357, 303, SR44, S1154.
PLEASE NOTE: If you need Trigonometric Functions, this calculator is NOT for you.

2-0 out of 5 stars OK until the keys quit
Great calculator, and HP's excellent manual does the job. HOWEVER, it should last. The early HP25 could be dropped off the table, and I still have one - unfortunately the battery died, or it would be active still. The operator keys stopped working on my 17BII. Power came on, self-test wouldn't test, and the operator(+ - x, etc. ) had no effect. People should buy HP calculators because they work well, they are well documented and they LAST. No matter how marvelous a calculator is, if the keys don't work, it is less than a paperweight.Charles Elliott

5-0 out of 5 stars The best financial calculator around
Nothing else even comes close.None of that annoying 5 minute wait like the 12c while you stare at a screen that says "running".Also, the 17b2+ has been visually cheapened (cheap plastic, rather than the metal-like cover).This is the banking gold standard.Easy to use and very intuitive.

4-0 out of 5 stars Reliable, Keep Spare Batteries
This calculator got me through my BBA and MBA.It's too bad the CFA guys don't accept it.I've had mine since 1992.At least the one produced back then was tough.If you use it a lot, though, it will go through your batteries.Carry some spares.I wish HP would integrate some sort of recharchable batterie witha solar panel so that none of the stored functions are lost.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to the Russian CFA guy!!
Using this calculater on the CFA exam can get you kicked out!Just thought I'd set the record straight.

From the AIMR website:

Two models of business calculator are authorized for use on the CFA examinations: the Texas Instruments BA II Plus (including the BA II Plus Professional) and the Hewlett Packard 12C (including the HP 12C Platinum when available). AIMR strictly enforces all policies with regard to calculator usage during the Chartered Financial Analyst examinations and candidates are required to abide by AIMR's policies.

Your calculator will be inspected prior to the start of the examination. Your calculator must then remain on your desk in full view and proctors will continue to inspect calculators throughout the administration of the examination. Proctors are instructed to confiscate all unauthorized calculators. Failure by the proctors to detect an unauthorized calculator prior to the start of the examination, or your use of an unauthorized calculator at any time during the exam, does not imply that the calculator is an approved model or that your scores will ultimately be reported. Use of an unauthorized calculator is considered a violation of AIMR rules, regulation and policies, and may result in a professional conduct investigation with the possibility of sanctions up to and including suspension from participation in the CFA Program and voiding of your examination results. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for business and MBA
Great device!
The best that I've had. Unfortunately, the battery cover is too fragile and broken.
The worst thing is that now this model from HP is discontinued

5-0 out of 5 stars Irreplaceable for finance professionals
Just have to log my support for this great calculator, similar to others I bought an HP 19B in the beginning of my college years (1984) along with all the related add'l manuals available at the time (marketing, banking, real estate,?) and have loved and used it ever since - despite religious use of Palm devices since their inception.Yes my battery cover broke also, but high tensile clear tape quickly remedied that. Unfortunately a mishap damaged the keypad functionality requiring a replacement.I'm estatic to be able to replace it so easily! May buy two to make sure there's always a backup.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good, but too big, too fragile
I do own one of these but for serious day-by-day calculation at work I prefer the 12C, it is much more easy to use and much more robust.

5-0 out of 5 stars Business and Studies
Well, if you are serious about having a calculator that does it all and you are willing to invest the time in learning how to use it, then the HP19B II is for you.The calculator was way ahead of its time when it was introduced in the 1990's, and still has plenty of intricacies that many do not possess today.First, there is the ability to switch to any foreing language, decimal notation and most importantly the programming feature.This feature allows you to construct your own formulas, regardless of the type of business you are currently using such formulas.In addition, graphics can help in seeing your computation, although the screen is a bit too small, yet the point is to graph your computation to give you an understanding and guidance. Second, you can make appointments, reminders and a contact lists in the memory, however you must be very compact with it.Thirdly is the feature that allows you to write text!! While studying, I found this very helpful in remembering definitions and terms.Finally, the HP19BII even has an intra signal to send data to a HP printer, but such printers are hard to find and the printed results vary in quality.Make no mistake, this calculator is for the serious and in depth professional whether in statistics, finance and math. If you are a beginner, then my suggestion is try the Texas Instrument TI BAII Plus.It has many of the same featureas of the HP19B II at a fraction of the price and can stand on its own for many finance, statistic and other mathematical functions, but lack the foreign currency conversion, text, appointment reminders and programming features. On the other hand, if you really want a calculator to last you for more than 10yrs and make it an everyday companion, then the HP19B II is it!!

2-0 out of 5 stars It will break
I really like the features of the calculator, but no matter how careful you are, the battery compartment door will break. I've had four of them, and the same exact thing happened to every one of them, without ever having been dropped or abused in any way. The plastic holding the battery compartment door has broken off and been laying on the desk without the caluclator even having been touched. When it breaks in this manner, the batteries loose contact and all data is lost. It's to bad an otherwise great product has to have a design flaw like this. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great for money, great longevity
I bought this calculator for my first finance class 12 years ago.While it does have some limitations such as not being able to work with uneven cash flows, it is still the finance calculator I grab when I want to figure something out in a hurry (I also own an HP 19BII and TI BAII Plus).The BAII Plus does do much more for only a few more dollars, but it is not as quick for simple finance calculations.Further, the BA 35 is still in perfect shape after much use, while the BAII Plus' display has begun malfunctioning and some of the digits do not show up at all now.The BA 35 is a great calculator, but ultimately, I would suggest the HP 17BII (which I have also used extensively, but do not own) if money is not a consideration.

3-0 out of 5 stars Underrated but Outdated
The Texas Instraments BA-35 is a calculator who's time has passed. It does allow the practiced user to ammoritize loans or value annuities with amazing speed, but today there are better options out there.

Deficiencies: 1. Lack of algebraic logic, it just does the calculations in the order you enter them. 2. inconvenient memory- it takes several keystrokes to store or retreive from the memory (but you can use the 5 financial registers as memories). 3. wears out too easily- I have had the displays on 3-4 of these calculators go whacky on me. This is not a problem I have had with other TI models.

There are lots of cool tricks you can do with this calculator, but even the Society of Actuaries has moved on to allow more capable models.

5-0 out of 5 stars Virtually everyone should own a business calculator.
Everyone who borrows money to finance a car or a house should own a business calculator. It can quickly compute in advance how much your monthly payments will be once you insert the amount borrowed, the yearly interest rate, and the number of payments. Or,if you prefer, you can insert the amount of the monthly payment you can afford and calculate the amount you can afford to borrow or the number of payments over which you will need to spread out the loan. You will also be able to protect yourself against accidental or deliberate errors made by the lender. For the purposes outlined above, the Texas Instruments BA35 is a very good buy at a bargain price. If you need a more sophisticated business calculator I recommend the Texas Instruments BA II Plus.

2-0 out of 5 stars Underpowered and overpriced
Anyone who purchases a BA-35, uses it and then tries out the TI BA II Plus for about 12 bucks more is going to suffer a bad case of buyer's remorse.The 35 is woefully underpowered in financial calculation capability compared to the next higher level of financial calculators.The reason I have one is that is is one of the required calculators for the actuarial exams (for reasons I have yet to figure out).

My overall recommendation is -- if you want a financial calculator that has actual capability, spring for either the HP12c or the TI BA II Plus.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good, basic business calculator
I have a TI BA-35 that I purchased about 15 years ago and it still works. It has just the basic statistics functions (found on almost all scientificcalculators) and compund interest/ time-of-money calculations, but that'sall a small business generally needs.

It came with a great book, teachingelementary foundations of statistics and finance.I do not know if thepresent version comes with this book, but I would hope so.I never had astatisitics course in college, but with this aid can do some meaningfulanalysis. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars BEST Financial Calculator for the Money
I have used (and own) many of the available financial calculators on the market.I "recommend" the HP-10B to my university finance students, both graduate and undergraduate.

The HP 10B is a directly positioned competitor to the TI-BA-II+, but HP's entry is superior.The keys feel more solid, the machine itself "seems" better made.Having worn out more than one of each, my experience has been that the HP has more staying power.And, the TI-BA-II+ often requires more keystrokes to accomplish the same tasks (i.e., NPV calculations). ...

The HP 10B has a well written manual, including examples on using the function.HP has the manual available on-line on their website for the inevitable time that the user needs it and has lost the original.

While there are cheaper financial calculators, it seems that this particular level is the minimum I would recommend to professionals or students.Less expensive versions, while saving a few dollars, miss important features.As a general rule of thumb, if the calculator can perform the "IRR" function, as this can, it will be able to handle pretty much any calculation into which the finance student, professonal, or banker will run.Lesser machines do not have this function.

Ironically, even larger fancier calculators, such as the venerable HP-12C, are in my estimation inferior as well.The 12C uses RPN logic which, while saving even more keystrokes, is simply foreign to most students.More importantly, some functions, such as the Time Value of Money functions, on the 12C require interpretation.On the 12C, for example, solving for the number of periods in an annuity, the value gets rounded UP to the next integer.

Strongly recommended as the best value in inexpensive financial calculators.

5-0 out of 5 stars This calculator feels good to use.
I had bought a cheap TI calculator in a grocery store, and was very unhappy with the tactile feedback of button pushing.I always had to check the display to see if the numbers that were being input were actuallyregistering correctly.This HP-10B not only has a good display, but it isalso comfortable to hold, and it feels good when you use it.That's all Iwas looking for.I don't actually use any of the financial functions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Capable for Business or Personal Use
I bought this calculator as required equipment for my CFP program.It is far more capable than the old TI BA-II I had used for years.I spent about an hour going through the well written manual and doing practice problemsto familiarize myself with the calculator's logic.You can do all kinds ofcash flow analyses with it that are not possible on the TI.I use the TimeValue of Money calculations frequently, and you can even change thepayments and rate of return in specific periods.The only thing it won'tdo is print out the information!

I would recommend it for any financialprofessional or a serious do-it-yourself financial planner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value
I have owned all of Hewlett Packard's financial calculators.The HP-10B has several features that make it the calculator I like to use.It has a 1 line BOLD display, which makes it very easy to read.This feature isextremely important to me, as my eyes aren't as good as they once were. Ithas all of the standard financial functions, such as uneven cash flowanalysis and TVM (time value of money). The only thing I miss on the 10Bis RPN. It would be nice if that were an option, along with a built incover, like the HP-19B.I solved the cover problem with an Astech plasticcase, which, unfortunately, is no longer available. If your vision is lessthan perfect and you don't want to spend alot of money for a financialcalculator, you will be very pleased with the 10B. Even if you have perfectvision, you won't go wrong with this calculator.

This specific model was required for an MBA Finance class I took recently, or I probably would nothave purchased, as I already had a TI Business Scientific (now renamed toBusiness II or something like that.) A few classical basic scientificfunctions are included as well except for trig.The numerical range of thecalculator (E+/-499 power) is impressive and consistant with the HP 20Smid-range scientific.The keyboard is well laid out, and the calculatorhelps maintain the high quality HP image.At recent prices like Amazon'sit is a bargan, and occasionally has a $5 rebate which makes almost a gift.If you need something more powerful, look at the HP-17BII (quite a bitpricier if you don't need the power) or even higher end business models HPmakes in the clamshell. ...
