It is an attractive size, light weight, and useable with a small repair and user manual download. If it had been expensive I would drop the rating to 2 stars but for under $8.00 not bad.
I removed the battery activation tab and entered a number, then a function, and when I started to enter the second number the first one flickered and returned to zero. The cause was a tiny flexing of the case and the reason it matters is that the battery compartment lid does not put quite enough pressure on the battery. I inserted a sliver of foam between the case top and the battery and all is well now. The English manual starts the first few pages in English and then switches to Spanish. Thinking I had this under control I went back home a grabbed the Spanish manual. OOps the middle of the Spanish manual was still Spanish! If yours has this short coming here is the link: [...]
Otherwise it is an OK and very inexpensive calculator that looks clean and is a quick way to...
I was looking for a calculator to do Loan payment calculations (for buying a car or furniture etc.) and it had to be simple and easy to use - I had an ativa Financial it worked for me, but the display failed. Tried Victor V12 and its a mess. This one is compact and yet has big numbers (so I can read without my glasses) But initially looked complicate too. However after reading a few instructions (LOAN E-PMT means Loan equal payments and that's what I wanted) It asks you to fill in the blanks and does just what I wanted to do. Very nice. Now I just hope it lasts. But with me Canon has a very good reputation and their Printers seem to last till they are replaced as being obsolete. So I have high hopes.
I'm not a professional financial expert, but wanted a calculator for figuring out investment savings as well as loan payments for things that I may buy or sell. This Canon calculator fits the bill to a T. It has a large display and is easy to use as it just about walks you through each calculation. It's nice not having to dig out the instruction manual each time you want to do a financial calculation. It doesn't do all the professional financial calculations, but what it does do, it does well. Normal calculations are basically like a normal calculator. Exactly what I was looking for.
