Customer Reviews

Strong start, seems like a great calculator. There has been a lot of bad press on this calculator, so I would like to put in my two cents. I received the calculator quickly, as expected in a prime membership.- The calculator received was the newer version, not the one in the picture. By all accounts this is either very bad or very good. For now I am choosing to take it as a positive.- By feel, it is solidly built, hefty even. By comparison, I have been lugging around the old Casio scientific calculator I used on the PE which weighs in at about half as much and is slightly larger dimensionally.- I did the test of inputting numbers 1-9 as quickly as possible, and had no issues. The firm press buttons do not feel clunky, just solid. Perhaps it is my background with other older technology where hair trigger buttons tend to cause headaches. I like to feel when I have actuated a button or switch. If they stiffen up in the long run, I will post that later.- My only complaints were that I had to change the calculator to algebraic order of operations from the default and that it does not display full input formulas prior to executing the calculation (which are features I have come to love from my trusty old Casio scientific calculator). The algebraic notation is really important for most calculations as it denotes order of operations above and beyond the parentheses. A personal pet peave for me was also that the default decimal is set at 2 places (dollars and cents). Personally, I prefer to do my own rounding instead of trusting a machine to do it for me, especially as you can't tell if it is truncating. This was also changed while I was changing the order of operations (its in the manual).This is of course predicated on my having just gotten the machine for my MBA program and not having really used it heavily yet. Also please not that I am an engineer, not a business undergrad or accountant. As a result, my remarks are based solely on my experience with high end graphing and programmable calculators as well as on the scientific calculators allowed in the engineering certification exams. 4Possibly low quality build. I'm sure it's a fine calculator overall, but I feel like for $50 I expect a robust and durable product. The screen is too sensitive to touch and it causes black bleeding / smearing to appear, like the circuits in the lcd display turn on our something. It comes and goes and didn't seem permanent so far, but I worry it will become permanent. It seems like a simple design change would have owned this, such as a hard plastic or glass protective cover over the lcd.I requested a refund and will see how that goes. I wish it was made clear in the product description whether such screen sensitivity is normal is not, and whether it could become a long term problem.Is this because it is stock from factory seconds? Or is this how all of these are? Maybe I will try buying one from Walmart for a higher price to see if it has the same issue. 3Better than the regular BA 2 plus but still flawed I own both this and the regular BA 2 plus. They have the same functionality but the build quality on this model is much better in every respect in which they differ. Both models share the same weaknesses, though.Strengths:* Allowed on the CFA exam and in many finance classes. This is the real reason for its use* Has most finance-related functions you would need reasonably handily available* An alternative to the ubiquitous HP 12C* Has both chain and algebraic mode. Chain mode calculates everything up to now immediately, so 2+3*5 = 25. It also has algebraic mode, which would give you 2+3*5=17. Some people like one way and some like another. I'm glad they provided both. Personally I use algebraic mode but you have to get used to it.Weaknesses:* The biggest weakness in both this and the regular BA 2 plus is their decision about key presses. You CANNOT press a key until you have completely released the previous key or it will not register. This leads to big problems if you are typing fast on it. You really have to use the same finger for all keys you press or some of your key presses will not register. You may think this is a small problem because this is how many people use a calculator. However, the BA 2 plus has many important functions that you can only get to by pressing "2nd" and then the key. It would be very desirable to be able to press second with one hand and the key with another. I can't tell you how many errors this has caused for me. I think TI had to implement this on purpose, so I have to blame their engineering and/or design department. The HP does not have this failing.* Screen construction. The plastic over the screen is really, really thin and in contact with the LCD. This means a very gentle touch will turn your LCD black or put crazy designs on it. This is problematic since this calculator only provides a soft case and the screen is not recessed, so the screen WILL get pressure applied at times. No need to make things so delicate, TI.* Friction with the table. The regular BA 2 plus has no friction between it and the table so as you type, your calculator will move around. Awful. This pro model has two small rubber bumps at the top of the calculator but the bumps at the bottom are plastic with no friction. This means the calculator has a tendency to rotate as you use it. I don't know why TI didn't just use rubber at the bottom like they used it at the top.* Interface design. This is not the worst design in the world, but it does seem like the guys at TI could have put more thought into which functions are frequently used in finance. For example, you must press "2nd" in order to use the exponential function. That's a very common function in finance! They made really obscure functions like inverse hyperbolic cosine as easily available as really basic and important stuff. Another example of a poor decision: it takes multiple keystrokes to clear basic items like the values stored in the time-value-of-money spreadsheet or the memory locations. Why make these commonly used key so obscure. What TI really needs to do is video people actually using this calculator on the CFA and in classes and see which keys get used. Make them easy, preferably one keystroke. Bury things that are *never* used in a menu or something.Neutral comments:* Some people say the keys require a lot of pressure to press. This is true but it's also true of the HP and generally, I think, a fine choice. They could have made them more gentle, but these positively click, so you really know when you have pressed them. You won't accidentally press wrong keys. I think it's fine. Anyway all three main financial calculators (HP 12C, BA 2 plus, BA 2 plus pro) have high pressure keys. 5BEST Calculator for the CFA Exams I love this calculator. I upgraded from the BAII Plus (non-professional). Performance wise, they are roughly the same. I have not noticed any speed increases in doing typical NPV or IRR calculations. You get a few new features with the Professional version, but you will probably never use them. Shallow positives include better tactility on the buttons and a more attractive calculator. (The BAII Plus looks like something you might use in middle school algebra; the Professional version looks like something you might find on a hedge fund manager's desk.)But this calculator has huge benefits for the Chartered Financial Analyst exams if you plan to take them.1) Easily replaceable battery, no screwdriver needed. You can rest easy if your calculator dies during the exam.2) Schweser Notes is based on the TI calculator keystrokes (good luck if you're trying with an HP).3) If you're upgrading from a BAII Plus, you can bring both calculators into the exam so you have a spare. (Another fallback in case your battery dies AND you accidentally swallow your spare battery.)For those reasons alone, if you don't already own this calculator, and are looking to take the CFA, spend the $45 and just buy it. It's the best financial calculator on the market to date. 5I highly recommend BA II Plus Pro over the standard version I bought both BA II Plus Professional and the cheaper normal version, and I can say the Pro version definitely worth the extra money.What makes the Pro standing out is the keystroke quality and feedback. On the non-Pro one, sometimes I can't tell whether the keystroke has been registered. This can be a big issue if you prepare to use it on FRM or CFA exam. There is simply no time to double check your calculators and if you do, and the results are different then you have to calculate for the 3rd time. You are not on the efficient frontier, right.With the Pro, there is no such issue and I trust each key push. I used it on FRM exam and it proved to be very handy and efficient. For serious test taker, I highly recommend BA II Plus Pro over the standard version. 5Preferred over BA II Plus I originally purchased the BA II Plus calculator for my schooling (I am working on a degree in accounting). I returned the BA II Plus in favor the the Professional, and if you are debating between the BA II Plus and the Professional; I recommend the BA II Plus Professional. The reason is the buttons. With the BA II Plus there is no way, other than keeping a very close watch on the display screen, to know if: A) a button has been pressed at all; or, B) two buttons have been accidentally pressed. With the BA II Plus Professional there is a small clicking feeling when a button has been pressed, thus enabling a confident user to input calculations without having to constantly check for input errors. 5Functionally this is great. The issue is the screen is FRAGILE and ... Functionally this is great. The issue is the screen is FRAGILE and every little bump causes imprints on the display. usually these go away but I expect this to continue to be an issue. A more durable screen would make this a 5* review. Additionally, lack of a hard case invites damage to the screen. If you are a desk jockey this might be ok but I need a more rugged calculator for the road. You can buy an off brand case and I highly recommend it.Is this worth it, unless you SPECIFICALLY need this model I would likely look elsewhere or perhaps to the older model. My previous model of the BA II is 20 years old and works like new. 3Needed for classes, but not a great product My daughter is "required" to have this particular calculator by her finance profs and will need it for future financial exams. But seriously? We sent the first one back because of a crappy screen that decorates itself with lcd lines with the slightest pressure. Heck, the screen looked broken. Second one did the same thing. We'd go with HP is she could use THAT one on her tests. Apparently this is a common complaint for this item. Read the two star reviews. We'd send the second back too if my daughter didn't HAVE to have this brand. Geez. These people are making a very crappy thing for figuring out formulas that are so important. 2Not worth the premium cost Calculator works as it should. But considering the price it isn't well made.The buttons are hard to press and the screen brings artifacts even when only gently wiping it.Calculator can't even display fractions like my $15 Cisco.The protection sleeve is no longer made out of soft vinyl like older versions but very thin non protective material.Sorry I usually love Texas Instrument devices but this product is just subpar. 1Strange buttons, tight pouch and maybe vulnerable screen It feels quite strange when pressing the buttons, like pressing an old styled mobile phone. That indeed rules out quick press.The included protective pouch is very tight and small. It is hard to slide the calculator in and once put in, it is hard to be taken out.When I gently wipe the screen, it shows some weird marks, which I have never seen on my other calculators. I'm concerned that the screen may be very vulnerable.On the back of the calculator, it says "made in Philippines" as well as a few Chinese characters. I have no idea why showing Chinese when it is not made in China.Unless it is required by the exam, I would not choose this calculator. For the same price, I can buy a much higher quality calculator from other brands. 2
