If you are looking for a basic, easy to use calculator then this is the right one for you. I have been using this calculator at work for just about a year now. As this was provided as part of my stationary in the office I am unaware of the price but after further research I do believe they are available for under £10.
My job requires a lot of maths so this is something that is being used every day. It still maintains its excellent function even with this amount of usage.
The calculator is standard size and measures about 4cm in width and 6cm in length. It does not have any scientific functions. It has all your standard buttons. The buttons are of a larger size than most calculators. It also has a larger plus/add button which is useful when doing multiple additions. The buttons are of a different colour with the numbers in grey, functions in black and the on/AC buttons in red. At the top of the calculator it has a solar strip which powers the calculator and below is the calculator screen .
The calculator works well. It performs all the basic functions. The buttons require little force when pressed to work. It does not have an off button but when it is not used it will switch off after approximately 5 minutes. The screen is able to display 8 digits and the memory buttons enable you to store calculations. It also has two tax buttons at the top, I am currently unsure how these work but have never had to use them.
The calculator is good for basic maths. I do believe though that it would not be beneficial for a student in secondary education or at university. It simply does not have enough functions to assist in this. However if you are looking for something simple, that works well and is robust this is the right one for you. I personally have never had any issues and it does represent good value for money.
Summary: An easy to use, simple calculator.
