HP 12c Platinum Financial Calculator is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Steadily declining quality ZERO STARS I originally had a 12C that I bought in 1984 while doing graduate MBA studies. I replaced the batteries maybe twice in 22 years. However, in 2006 I couldn't get it to work one day. No display, no nothing. I replaced batteries and nothing again so I bought the new 12C Platinum model. After about three years I noticed that the keys on the Platinum required extra effort to get them to work. I struggled along for another year when my son found an old 12C in the garbage can at work. It was missing the battery compartment door, but the device worked perfectly. I have used that since, about ten years. Finally the keys have started wearing out on that relic. I was going to consider buying a new 12C version of the calculator but have been discouraged by all the negative ratings these devices are receiving. Apparently the decision to make all new units in China is beginning to take it's toll. I'll have to do some research and perhaps find an American made product or a foreign made unit that isn't an atrocious piece of poor quality material as found in today's new HP models. Incidentally, with manufacturing going to China and labor rates there being extremely lower than labor in the USA, the prices didn't reflect a commensurate drop from when they were made here. So, the consumer is stuck with an inferior item at the same price. However, if the manufacturing is ever brought back to the US, I'm sure the price will skyrocket again. I guess it's called fleecing the customer. What further bothers me here on the HP site is that only a small percentage of the adverse (low ratings) comments ever receive a response from the HP staff. I surmise that management doesn't care about what the customer thinks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 12C Platinum I have had and used the 12C since it was introduced in the 1980's - one for home office and the other for office. Unfortunately after over 30 years of use, the one in the office failed. I purchased the Platinum and I like it better than the original. It is amazing that essentially the same electronic product is still available after over 30 years. I even have the 12C app on my phone, but it is not as good as the dedicated 12C calculator. As an accountant and real estate professional, the 12C financial Calculator with reverse polish notation (RPN) is my calculator of choice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK It has the same keys and functions as the original HP 12C but the case it comes in, is horrible. The old one had better quality; specifically with the material that is used. They also added a business card viewer/holder to the front of the case which I don't care for. All in all - it's a great calculator. I just wished they hadn't skimped on the leather case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this, not the regular 12C I used my original 12C until the feet dropped off. Six months ago I bought one Platinum and one regular 12C from HP. The regular 12C was so bad I threw it in the trash and bought this Platinum. The number keys on the regular did not contact and register the number even though it would click; this happened about one every six numbers, a frustrating disaster. But the Platinum is rock solid. So it must be a manufacturing difference. My Platinum says made in Philippines and the regular in China. Avoid the regular at all cost. And I like the backspace key on this Platinum.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HP 12C Platinum Financial Calculator Recommended for my finance class. Switchable from Reverse Polish Logic to Algebraic input. Performs as required. Examples provided in User Manual have errors in them but once you understand the inputs required, becomes intuitive.
