HP Prime - graphing calculator is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I don't have one. But maybe ... IF. Reading reviews on this product causes me to pause. Missing 1/x key! Bad visual contrast on keys! And other BASIC stuff.So my immediate question, that I do not see answered here, is whether further development to answer all the concerns and make improvements is in process or planned soon. Tell us all please.HP seems to have reduced the selection of calculator product offerings and missed some key things in the few new calculators. Is HP, the calculator KING backing out of the calculator market?Also, I had a 49G+ and it died. Keyboard inconsistent. And bezel around body face cracked and fell off. Cheap construction. Afraid of another HP with bad Keyboard.I am getting by with a 35S for most work and am happy except it cannot handle simultaneous equations with complex coefficients.Would like to have and recommend this new PRIME calculator.But for now, TI NSpire is recommended to my engineering students.They can figure it out without my help.They don't want to learn RPN either. But don't drop RPN!! I love it. And they would too, if there were a good manual and good training; something that is getting worse all the time in more than just your products. Excuses for owner/operator manuals are pitiful these days! Even a good editor of the English language would give an F grade. I never enjoyed a manual so much as the one for the Apple IIE - and I am NOT an Apple supporter. It was both entertaining and educational and VERY readable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Screen This replaced my TI-89 Titanium. The TI-89 had a lot of functionality, but its screen was very hard to read so most of that functionality went unused, and finally the display died. I picked the Prime over the NSpire because the Prime seemed more like a calculator. The screen is bright and easy to read and the touchscreen is quite useful. I like the ability to switch between CAS and numerical mode. It also has impressive plotting ability and very fast (instant). Mine has the dark blue lettering on the keys, so no issues there. The emulator and connectivity software works well. I actually prefer using the calculator over the emulator, which goes to say how nice the calculator screen and keyboard are.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Calculator with 1 big flaw The HP Prime has worked very well for most things thrown at it - but there has been one major flaw that limits my personal use of itThe choice of color used on the keys, is for me - Terrible. The light blue/cyan color I cannot see, unless clear bright light - which is not always available. No - I don't have any deficient visionI have asked some of my colleagues to take a crack at it, and they all say the same, so this must be a bigger problem than just mePlease HP - I have reported this in writing before, never heard from you. Please make a new batch with different color scheme easier to see - to make it more accessible for people like me. The Cyan color is NOT a good color to usethank you

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disaapointed so far I bought this a few days ago as a replacement for HP-15C calculator that I used for 35 years. This calculator did not come with a user's manual. All I want to do is to perform some quick scientific calculation and so far I am not happy. Plus the wireless connection is only good for a PC and I have an Apple system.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful (Usage history - 15c, 48gx, 50g, 35s) This abomination doesn’t know whether it’s a phone or a calculator: (1) on a calc, the interface is with keys, I don’t like putting my fingers on the screen. (2) the key color scheme is hard to read (3) the split between number calculation and CAS is ridiculous, makes the machine essentially unusable (4) documentation is horrible (5) the rechargable battery life is unknown ; on all other calcs battery change is simple, have an extra set handy and you’re good to go. (6) to sum up, this is NOT an engineer’s calculator; If you want an advanced calc with a CAS, stick with the 50g.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A slight advance over an HP48GX. I bought an HP Prime in December 2017 as a collectors item and as an opportunity to see Hewlett Packard's very best effort at developing the art of the hand held scientific calculator. As a calculator, the HP Prime matches and exceeds an HP48GX but these days the limitation is I don't have enough time to read the Prime documentation.Another limitation is I have found no third party support group, so far, where I might learn how to make a serial data connection to a Linux laptop, or perhaps read data from an Arduino front end data collection device.
