        I have ever own more than 5 calculators. Every certain years I was tempted to some new calculators with new features, then I had to learn it over again. And repeat. After so many years of learning and re-learning new calculators I decided to stick to one everlasting calculator and give up the new fancy complex features - Use MS-Excel instead. Actually, if your task is hard enough to require a unique feature that drive a calculator upgrade, I guess you will find MS-Office handy when this task happens. I found HP-12C is the best one meeting above strategy. I have own it for over 3 years and never looked back. It's powerful enough, fast enough, reliable enough. And I also want to point out two points that are overlooked by many: 1. HP-12c has been produced for 25+ years without major change - longer than any other financial calculator in the world. I don't need to worry about replacement. 2. HP-12c battery life is freaking long. This is very, very important. I have ever purchased the most powerful, consequently most expensive HP financial calculator (I think it's HP-18c but am unsure). HP-18c takes 3 batteries and very soon I found out why - the juice runs out after months. I have to carry backup batteries on my trip. On the other hand, my HP-12c last at least 3 times longer with one single CR2032. The faulty power-on button happens to me, sometimes. I see it a manufacturing issue not an architecture design issue. There is A REASON it's produced for so long. I see this ideal to a financial guy and I won't be surprised if Buffett owns one, too.

        Poor quality compared to original

        By Kaeup

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about HP® 12c Platinum Programmable Financial Calculator:

        I have been using an HP 12C since my grad school days in the mid-1980s. I still had the original from then until just a few years ago when it was lost (or stolen?). I am now on my second replacement. The quality of materials and workmanship is definitely lower now than it was in 1985. The first replacement worked fine for 1-2 years then started yielding inexplicable and inconsistent errors in calculations. The second replacement - which I've only had for two years or so - now has a defective #1 key. The key doesn't fully spring back up when released and has to be pressed VERY HARD to get the #1 to register at all. Obviously, this makes it very difficult to achieve any sort of speed, which is one of the main advantages of RPN. I will be getting another replacement now, sadly knowing that it, too, will probably have to be replaced within a couple of years. Because of the price, it's hardly worth pursing the matter with HP, but I'm very disappointed in the quality of the current product. I downloaded an HP 12C app for use on my iPhone. It works fine, but it lacks the tactile sensation of the real thing, so the process of using it is much slower than on the real HP 12C.

        12C is absolutely the BEST.

        Since its introduction in about the 1075's I have bought at least 12 12Cs for myself, family, and friends. I now have one by my PC (HP of course) and my reading chair. They are an important part of my life.

          Comments about HP® 12c Platinum Programmable Financial Calculator:

          I love my 12C calculator. It works great and I
          love the design of it. The only thing that I wish could change is
          that when you are solving for "N" the number of payments or periods
          that it didn't automatically round the answer to the nearest
          whole number. I wish I could choose to use that function or not.
          Other than that: the calculator is perfectly amazing:).
