Great Calculator For A Great Price!!!!!!
By Tom K.
I needed a calculator for my mortgage loan assistant work. I went to the local department store and purchased a Texas Instruments BAII Plus calculator for just under $40. I returned it 2 weeks later as; 1) I thought it felt cheaply made while using it, 2) Display was hard to read, and due to the crystal being somewhat set below the window, unless your light source was directly above the calculator, the shadow on the edge of the display partially obscurred the digit(s). Then I went to Amazon.com and read reviews of competing financial calculators. After doing so I decided on the Calculated Industries Qualifier Plus IIIx. For just a couple of dollars more, I got what I feel is one heck of a calculator! The display is much better to read (no shadows and brighter). The buttons are 'soft-touch' which makes so much difference in the feel of the calculator, not like the cheap feeling ones on the Texas Instruments. Also, the "000" button on the Calculated Industries is a godsend. When you are dealing with mortgages, and most figures in the thousands, why in the world wouldn't every financial calculator have a thousands ("000") button? That button alone probably saves you pressing the zeros button 50+ times a day! Thank you Amazon.com and all of those who add helpful reviews that add to a rewarding purchase such as this.

Operation is perfect and the user guide is very informative
By Kayla Horton
The plastic that covers the numbers screen keeps falling out of my calculator... Frustrating but not dabilatating. A class mate is having the same issue with the same calculator but bought hers from a different place. Maybe the adhesive just isn't strong enough?
Operation is perfect and the user guide is very informative.

Used but fairly decent...
By Amazon Customer
The calculator works except the OFF button sticks and it takes several attempts to turn off if I want to do it manually. Overall, I like it.
