Customer ratings and reviews for HP 17bII+ Financial Calculator

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Calculator with Great Features I bought my HP 17bII+, over two years ago. Comparing it to my HP handhelds, including HP12c (financial), HP16c(programmer), HP95LX and HP100LX (palmtops), HP10bII and HP30b (financials), I found it to be the best 'all-in-one' handheld. Carrying my HP17bII+ eliminates my need to carry my laptop at times. It is a great convenience to print from my HP17bII+ to my HP82240B thermal printer when I need a hardcopy printout. My calculator has never exhibited any of the keyboard quirks others have mentioned. I have programmed and used 'SOLVE' extensively and appreciate the programmable prompts, compared especially to the 30b. I had a TI financial calculator but gave up on it because of the multiple keystrokes need for TVM and Amortization calculations. I use a TI Voyage 200, for differential equation work. I also teach a graduate-level finance course using my HP 17bII+, and students are impressed with it. I highly recommend the HP17bII+ calculator to my students. November 13, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Features I have owned a 17B ( the precursor to the 17b11 )Business Calculator for Many Many Years. I have never had a problem and keep a second one in reserve in case mine breaks down (That has Never happened over 20 Years . It is the best Business Calculator On the Market. Easy to use and always handy When I need it I am A Commercial Real Estate Broker have been a Bank Loan officer and Business Owner. The 17b11 is an exact duplicate of the 17B and although the case seems to be different It is a great investment for anyone in Businesses or In School April 7, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible Keyboard -- Otherwise Fine Do not buy this calculator. The buttons do not work. It almost never registers the first button that you press. Often it will skip a pressed button midway through doing a calculation. The functionality is fine, but it is unusable because it skips buttons. It is unfortunate, because I have only ever used a 17bii+, but I have to switch to something else that has buttons that work. October 31, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by On Button Sensitivity I really like the functionality of this calculator. However, one obvious problem is that regardless of what I do, when I place this calculator in its protective pouch, and I to open it up, and it's already turned on. Good for the battery industry, but not good for customer relations. Something ought to be done to correct this problem. Naturally, this wouldn't happen if I didn't transport my calculator, but since I teach accounting and finance classes at night, I need my financial calculator wherever I go. August 17, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Keyboard I have had an HP 17bII for about 10 years and it was the absolute best calculator I have ever had. I'm in finance and I had it on me always. Unfortunately, I lost it one day in an airport and was forced to buy the newest 17B11+. Essentially the same features as my old one, so no complaints there. However, my one major complaint with the 17BII+ is the keyboard. When I type a key, usually the first one doesn't register. It happens ALL THE TIME and I never had this problem with the old 17BII. The problem is so frequent that I have found it be almost unusable and I have unfortunately had to start using another business calculator. I don't like the substitute as much, but my job depends on doing calculations fast and on the fly. Not having numbers register just does not cut it. I hope HP can improve the keyboard, because after that, it will be a fantastic calculator. Until then, I can't recommend this. I have seen at least one other review on this board with the same problem, so I think that this is a widespread issue. August 12, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by Button problems plague this model From the 1st day and 2yrs since this thing has always failed to register numbers entered (regardless of pressure). When I looked online, similar complaints/reviews abound - check it out. having to look at the number to make sure the calculator got it makes this a disaster! Buy an old 17bII - used. Don't be fooled by reviews of people who just took it out of the box. Go to reviews off the HP site - metareview March 24, 2010
