I received my MK-61 from the Ukraine yesterday, airfreight from Ukraine was via Russian Federation (i saw the postmarks on the box), all in 12 days to Malaysia!
In the box: MK-61, power adapter, slip case. The calculator was advertised as being fully tested but to my disappointment, there were two serious defects:
1-could only power up on AC. despite cleaning the light corrosion in the battery terminal, couldn't get it to work on battery.
2-the button '8' when pressed shows the figure '5' which actually is 5. I confirmed this by pressing '8' ENTER '8' X shows 25 and also '8' F X^2 again shows 25! no, it's not a case of faulty display. 64 square root correctly displays 8.
I'm thinking of returning the calculator back to the vendor in exchange for a working calculator. overall, quite a nice calculator, except for the horrible plastic buttons - worse than el cheapo Casios :-)
