Does exactly what it says on the tin
on 8 January 2004
If you're looking for an inexpensive financial calculator for (e.g.) University/CFA or a not too quantitative job, then this one does the job fine. It's not as flash as the HP 12C, but personally I only need the TVM and Bond calculations, both of which it does. The manual is clear with good examples, and it only took me about 10 mins to get all I needed. Once you work out how to enter dates (12.0803 for 12th August 2003 in European format) and how/when to use the compute button, you're away. It's also ridiculously light, probably weighing as much as about 3 bic's, although it is still normal calculator size. The case is pretty funky for a calculator as well(!)
All in all, does what you would expect, is easy to use, and will hopefully sit on my desk for years to come.
