Customer ratings and reviews for HP 12C Financial Programmable Calculator

Rated 5 out of 5 by Best calculator I have just gotten a HP 12C calculator and am completely satisfied. The reverse Polish notation is excellent for anyone who is serious about numbers. I have been happy with my prior HP calculators including the models 35,45,55, 67, 32SII,and 11C. To my mind, these calculators have been overwhelmingly important to my work and investing, second only to the development of the microcomputer. October 9, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Since MBA School The calculator itself is ok, but the leather case is much too snug. September 26, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super calculator Hp has been making this calc for 30 years. Little has changed; nothing needs to be changed. This is pure, robust, calculation at its finest. Highly recommend. This is my second one in 30 years. The first was stolen by a curious baboon in Africa about 6 years ago. I waited until the current iteration to get a baboon-proff specimen. Don't know whether hp guarantees the current model against baboonv but it sure is sturdy. Hooray hp. Keep making as durable as the are. September 17, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent product I had a 12c calculator for 20+ years and when it got ruined and would no longer work I didn't hesitate to immediately order another one. I didn't even consider getting any other type or brand of financial calculator even with all the new technology out there. This does everything you could possibly need it to do and is more than reasonably priced. August 27, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by The world's best Since 1976 when I enrolled at Digital Equipment Corp. gave me a HP 12c Financial Calculator, we are in 2011 and yet I still use. It's great is damaged I would buy another. August 25, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by These are the best I had a 10b a few years ago and was disappointed with it. I have used various hp scientific calculators for work and school but still need to perform business math at the same time. I finally gave in and purchased one. It's great for date calculations and financing. These calculators have been around for 30 years and quite a few people still use the same model. They are built very well. July 24, 2011
