    Great calculator with many features

    This calculator is very reliable, easy to use and definitely good quality; it's the most durable calculator I have ever had. It can't get better than this. The TI-83+ has all the features you need, but avoid the extra nonsense you don't really need in the more advanced calculators. Some professors won't let you use more advanced calculators, so definitely check with them if you're considering a more advanced calculator. I use my TI-83+ in all my classes and it's reasonably priced compared to others. I strongly recommend this calculator for high school and collage. I am happy I made the right choice to purchase it.

    Equipment failure

    The functionality of the product is great and my daughter loves it for her school work. However, for once we did not buy the Geek protection plan. Guess what, on the 33rd day the LED screen failed. Best Buy would only replace within 30 days. They did give me the customer service number to TI. TI was very helpful and spent about an hour doing reboots and other measures with me. Alas it did not work. They sent a FedEx label to return and promise that I will receive a new one in 2 weeks. Sent it yesterday, and I will see. I will not recommend at this point until I see how long the replacement lasts.

    First of all, when you're done with this calculator do your self a favor and recycle it for cash on www.cash4calcs.com. I used for calc and statistics, but had to upgrade to a TI-89 for physics and chem. This calculator is sweet - it's like a game boy once you download all the games from your friends. I've personally spent at least 50 hours programming simple games on it as well - I would recommend the TI-83 to anyone who has an interest in computer programming as it serves well as an introduction.

    Good calculator, not good for fractions

    Well I am still trying to learn what it does, but I have another calculator that is not scientific that can handle fractions, square roots, etc much better than this calculator. The screen is big which is good, but it does not display any fraction at all. Its confusing how to do square roots too. So I don't know what else to say. Its ok, but if you are looking for a calculator to actually display a legit fraction or square root, the TI-84 and TI-89 does it great.

    Very nice very helpful especially in Algebra subject. I have no complaints. Nice color also and it had s lot if features. I think I can still use this in my Senior High School years. My classmates liked it too. The keys or buttons are very use friendly and they are easily understood for what they're functions will be. The manual is very self explanatory and easily understood . I like this calculator. I would recommend this calculator to any if my friends.

    Excellent Graphing Calculator

    This calculator was a required purchase for our high school student's math class. It is easy to use, has a very good screen graphics display, and is lightweight for the backpack. It looks a bit overwhelming to use at first with so many buttons, however, after minimal instruction, it is very straightforward to use.

    I'm a Math Major and I still use the TI-83, even though new versions have come out. I believe it is simpler and easier to use. It has all you need without too many buttons or things in the way. It is a great tool for cheking your work, and it will become your best friend in all Trig, Calculus, and higher math classes.

    I purchased the TI-83 because I was returning to college again after 20 years. I used to have one of these but didn't remember how to use it. I had to relearn it using the instructions from the professor. It was a good buy from Best Buy and I know that if I have problems with it I can return it. Basically it does everything it is supposed to do and any issues are with the user, at least in my case.

    I was taking a statistics class and needed to get a TI 83 or the TI 84. I chose the TI-83 plus because it was cheaper and had no more use for it after the class. The TI-83 plus worked perfectly. I was able to do all my calculations, and worked flawlessly. I also had the chance to use the TI-84, which was a little more user friendly. All in all, got the job done perfectly.

    Got this for my son who is a Sophomore in HS. He loves it. Took some getting used to but feels it is the best calculator he has had and it will carry him through college! Had to get it in a hurry and Best Buy was the only place who had it. Even got a price adjustment since Walmart had it $9.98 cheaper. Best Buy was very accommodating. Thanks!

    Great Calculator for Beginning College

    This is a great calculator for those finishing up high school, as well as those who are beginning college. It has all of the functions that I needed for my first math courses through college, and I'm sure it'll last through the rest. The only downside so far is the screen isn't back-lit, but that is a minor downfall.

    I had this calculator in high school, used it as an undergrad, lost it somewhere along the way, and bought it again for grad school. I just wish I knew how to get the game Snake back on there.

    I bought this calculator for my granddaughter on the recommendation of her Algebra ll teacher. Found out later that other math teachers were also recommending it. So far she likes using it very much. Compared to other calculators it is a little pricey but I think it was worth it.

    Does everything it's supposed to do and does it well. Not much to say other than you can easily access lost manuals, do updates and more with a comprehensive website from Texas Instruments which makes this better than an cheap knockoff.

    Best Buy matched the best price I could find on the internet - good for them (its still too expensive for a calculator)! It's a required calculator for my son's math class, don't see why, we could never use them! (yeah, I'm old) When I press in 1+1 it equals 2, so I guess it works like its supposed too...

    The directions that came with it are clear and easy for my 16 year old to understand. It works well out of the box and does all the math functions he needs for school and testing. The batteries last a long time based on 4 hours of use a day. He likes it and it was a good choice for his needs.

    I purchased this product for school. The only thing that I do not like about the product is having problems at times seeing the screen. I have adjusted the brightness but at times depending on the angle you hold it, you will not see it. I wish I could have afford the color screen version.

    Best Buy came to the rescue again. My son's school asked us to buy the calculator for his math class. The sales person was very helpful because there were a few versions.
