Perhaps this model is being discontinued as Staples is selling off their stock for $14.99 each. Out of curiosity I purchased the last unit in the local store. Based on what I had read in the forum I expected that I might get a defective keyboard -- and I did, the FV key is intermittent.
The only good thing I can say about calculator is that the display is very clear. In my opinion the display for numbers is clearer and larger than on HP-12C, and larger (but not clearer) than on HP-17BII.
For ease of use, the menu system on HP-17BII can't be beat.

I would have thought they were all long gone by now. I bought 3 for $6 apiece last Spring. The one I opened has a great keyboard. All keys function and have good tactile response.
