Customer ratings and reviews for HP 12C Financial Programmable Calculator

Rated 5 out of 5 by Old Reliable HP 12c I've been using the 12c; since the early 70's, when it was first introduced. I've been through two of them and am working on my third 12c. Unfortunately the unit only last a little over ten years. By the way, you don't have to worry; one one will ever borrow it work a calculation. May 6, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I have had this calculator for almost 20 years and it has never failed to give great performance. I love this product. The battery lasts forever and I use it all the time. I don't use all the features that it has available often, but when I do, it works just great. April 2, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding product I have owned the same HP12C for 25 years (since 1982), when it was the latest and greatest-it still is. After several years of dormancy, I recently purchased a new button cell battery, and it fired right up, just like 1982. This calculator performs financial calculations like nothing else handheld, including amortizations, bond yields, depreciation, present values,internal rates of return, and programmed functions. It is just as relevant and productive today as the day I bought it 25 years ago. I can perform complex financial calculations as quickly with my 12C as I can with my $700 PC. The operating manual is thoroughly and completely documented and provides immediate throughput explanation for anything you intend to perform. March 20, 2008
