I have been trying to find a scientific calculator which has been designed for adults in a professional working environment. Everything these days seems to be aimed directly at school use, with careful avoidance of exam-board restrictions, but little attention given to basic efficiency in day-to-day use. I have old (very old!) ones which work well enough but are getting so worn and battered I wanted a new one.

Having previously tried the Casio FX-991ES and been disappointed by the almost-deliberately obstructive implementation of some common features, I tried a Sharp EL531WB. That was only £4, which is an astonishingly low price for what is actually a pretty decent calculator, but it suffers from one or two niggles that I found off-putting enough to investigate something else.

So we come to this, the Canon F-788DX. This calculator has something of a retro look to it and is a solidly-built, quite chunky piece of kit. It surprisingly came boxed with about a dozen separate instruction sheets in assorted languages. The instructions are generally a little clearer than most.

This calculator has a number of features that I find "ticks boxes" for me: Dedicated separate Store and Recall memory buttons, the usual "ENG" button to quickly flick to engineering format, power-on and off with single keypresses, built-in constants being presented with both symbol and value, and unit conversions being menu driven in a very easy to use grouped system. Other welcome features include a "solve" function that actually works (Casio take note!), a large number of memories, recall of several previous lines of input, the usual rudimentary base-N and complex number modes, and a good selection of secondary features.

Unfortunately things go downhill from here.

Got this calculator when I started an accounting course and it has been a joy to use. Nothing spectacular in its functions, its basic and performs well and thats all I need.
