Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very solid well-built and functional calculatorI bought my orginal 17bII almost 25 years ago and it is still running very well. I take good care of my things and try to make them last and keep them in nice condition, but 25 years is much more than I would have ever expected.As a financial professional I would not be caught without this thing. It has a nice thin size that allows for very easy transport in a jacket pocket or even in my briefcase or computer bag all while taking up very little real estate which I appreciate.The only wish I have is that HP would come out with a PC/Windows Mobile version for this outstanding calculator. As much as I love the calculator, I'd love being able to combine devices even more. Win Mobile would be a great addition!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HP 17BIII've had my 17BII since 1990 and its still going strong. The features are fantastic but in the long run, all the functions here are available on a spreadsheet and there may be no need for this calculator any more. I did buy a 10BII for the home office, the build quality doesn't seem to be there. It misses a key every once in a while.HP should write an application for the PC/MAC

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Business/Financial CalculatorGreat calculator - even for those out there that don't like HPs! In my line of work I need a calculator that can perform a variety of business and financial calculations. I have used the HP 12 series in the past, but this calculator is a great improvement. First of all, you don't have to use RPN; you can enter numbers and calculations just as you would on standard "non HP" calculators. Secondly, the on screen prompts make it easy to recall how to perform calculations that you might not use on a regular basis. My favorite and most often used calculations involve loan payments. This calculator makes it very easy to calculate these and to calculate how one variable change effects others without having to re-enter the data. I recommend this calculator to anybody that needs to perform business/financial calculations on a regular basis - even those that swear that they hate HPs. This calculator is great and very user friendly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent but poor keyboardExcellent, very powerfull built in functions, very easy to use and the Solve function is simply fantastic.I only dislike the keyboard (not as bad as 49's but far away from the 41's and the 32II's).Also the battery door is very thin and fragile.I would also like more scientific functions.I bought four 17bII+ for four employes of mine.On the whole I'm very happy to use it and I think it's an excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Thing is Sweeeettttt!Just got this calculator and it is impressive! I primarily have been using th 12C Platinum and I love it. This calculator takes business and financial calculations to the next level. While the 12C Platinum is great, you do have a good memory to do some less often used features (not a major drawback because they come back quickly)' The HP 17bII has a user prompting softkey interface. The display prompts you for entries and the calculations are fast! With 250 built-in formulas, most if not all, needs are cover. If one is not available, programming is simple and multiple additional formuls can be programmed and labled just like the built in ones.The chassis is sturdy and key keys are solid. Cosmetically, it is pretty cool looking. For now, this is the ultimate HP Financial calculator. P.S. Nice case too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad CaseThe calculator is excellent, the case is horrible. The case is not sturdy enough to withstand any pressure. When placed in my briefcase if anything gest on top or pushes on the case the calculator on button is activated. In fact I had the calculator on my desk in the case and my cat walked on it and turned it on. The problem is that this severely impacts batery life, I have repeatedly replaced the batteries just after a short time.Buy the calulator for its power, through away the case!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love functionality, hate the keys....they stick.I had to quit using my HP 17bII+ Financial Calculator because the keys stick and sometimes it would leave off an entry and my answer would be wrong. I cannot afford wrong answers when dealing with financial matters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Calculator with Great FeaturesI bought my HP 17bII+, over two years ago. Comparing it to my HP handhelds, including HP12c (financial), HP16c(programmer), HP95LX and HP100LX (palmtops), HP10bII and HP30b (financials), I found it to be the best 'all-in-one' handheld. Carrying my HP17bII+ eliminates my need to carry my laptop at times.It is a great convenience to print from my HP17bII+ to my HP82240B thermal printer when I need a hardcopy printout.My calculator has never exhibited any of the keyboard quirks others have mentioned. I have programmed and used 'SOLVE' extensively and appreciate the programmable prompts, compared especially to the 30b. I had a TI financial calculator but gave up on it because of the multiple keystrokes need for TVM and Amortization calculations. I use a TI Voyage 200, for differential equation work.I also teach a graduate-level finance course using my HP 17bII+, and students are impressed with it.I highly recommend the HP17bII+ calculator to my students.
