    I wasn’t happy that with only 13 days left in my semester I was told that I needed a ti 84 calculator. I had to buy it to do a few problems on statistics and probability. There was no way I was going to be able to do it off of the lower kind of calculator. I purchased the TI 84 CE and couldn’t have been happier with the results. Math problems and I’ve struggled hours on became so simple with this calculator. At first I thought learning the Calculator was going to be just a big pain but with all the videos out there on how to work this calculator it was so simple and easy to learn and use. As much as I didn’t want to have to buy it with only a few days left of school I’m glad I did purchase this calculator and it will not go to waste because I have a child that’s about to start ninth grade and is taking algebra so I’m sure this will only help her with her math homework as well. I am very pleased with my purchase

    We purchase last year the TI-84 plus and it is great but this updated version is incredible, when it comes to functions they are the same. They perform every problem you need. the main differences are that on this model( TI-84 plus CE) it has an illuminated screen that at the same time is color and it has a rechargeable battery and last but not least, it is about half as thin as the other models. So if you are in need of a graphic calculator, you can rest asure that this is the one for you. BTW there are other retailers that have it for less, but if you do your home work and bring evidence to Best Buy they would gladly honor the cheaper price. I did it and there was no problem having the cheaper price honor by Best Buy.

    I am currently studying civil engineering at my local university and I had purchased the TI-84 Plus CE to use for my statistics for engineers course for summer semester 2016. This calculator is a must for anyone studying engineering as well as any other discipline that requires graphing calculators. The pros of this calculator are (1) slim redesign (2) color display (3) rechargeable battery (4) default standard used at most colleges (5) limited edition gold color. The cons of this calculator are (1) price (2) most commands are displayed horizontally unlike those on the TI-Nspire CAS where it can display multiple items vertically. Overall though, this calculator is a must for anyone studying the aforementioned subjects/disciplines.

    My freshman daughter was told to get this or another TI calculator. She has been able to learn the calculator quickly and has been receiving A's on all her tests and homework since using it. While I know that the grade comes from her knowing the subject matter, she has said the calculator has made it easier for her to answer the questions quickly and correctly. She loves the Pink (we almost didn't get the Pink version as it was up a the register, not with all the other calculators). On a side note, this calculator can handle some water as well. My daughter's school had a burst pipe and she was evacuated from the classroom without being able to take her backpack. There was a lot of water damage to books and papers in her backpack, but the calculator has worked great! I don't know how much water it was exposed to and for how long, but it is working great.

    Lighter Weight, Smaller Size, High Price

    Texas Instruments has finally done something that they should have done a long time ago: make a smaller form factor calculator. It shouldn't be that hard to make a slimmer graphing calculator, especially with the given state of technology. The lighter weight is nice to carry around in a backpack, though it is a little bit of a concern that one will walk in to take a test and there will be a low battery notification due to the colored screen. My biggest concern, however, is the high price. This isn't a problem I have with this graphing calculator, but with all graphing calculators: they're too expensive. Yes, what they do, calculating more advanced mathematics, is so much easier with all of the physical buttons over using a computer or a phone, but it is just too expensive for the very limited function set that it has.

    I needed a TI-84 as a requirement for class and I decided to check out the Best Buy website. I noticed they had 10% off (which is better than nothing) the TI-84 plus and TI-84 plus + CE as a Student Deal. Prior to buying I checked other websites to check the price to see if buying it here would be my cheapest option. Since I couldn’t find another close retailer with the same price I went in to buy it. I chose this particular model because of the rechargeable battery and interface. So far I’ve tested it and it works well, I like that you can adjust the brightness to whatever setting suits you better. Overall I feel it was a great buy.

    This is by far the best Texas Instrument Calculator i have personally used. The vivid bright crisp display is much better than any calculator out there. The TI - 84 Plus CE runs much smoother than any TI calculator out there, and it is filled with options. It's Ideal for anyone in college or high school. I boast about this calculator when I'm at school. All my teachers are envious that I have the latest and greatest. It is much thinner than any TI-84 on the market, and it reminds me of the Nspire line up. The rechargeable feature is a really nice addition too. The calculator itself is beautiful, with its matte white finish on the case and back, and on the front the glossy black texture, its absolutely stunningly gorgeous.

    My daughter needed a calculator for math her 9th grade year. This one was recommended my the school but the one that was a step below would have been acceptable and was the one required however I opted to get this one since she would need it eventually. The calculator is easy for her to use and the screen is very nice. The battery life is very descent. I would recommend you find a back up charger in addition to the one that you get as teens do tend to misplace things. However it does use the older charger so if you have one from an old phone that may work for you. Overall very satisfied with the purchase and I would recommend this product based on the feedback I got from my daughters use of it.

    This was a sporadic purchase at the time. I was in the store looking for something else, but suddenly remembered my two older daughters that are high school recently had a disagreement over the lone TI-83 that was handed down from their aunt. This tool is essential now-a-days. This model is suitable for ACT/SAT testing, & the first full charge to the thing has lasted well over a month so far and still showing it hasn't lost any on the battery in the top right corner. It's pretty much one of those things that every high school student should have, unless they don't want to take a math course tougher than Algebra. This Calculator is a beast of a machine!!!

    I am a college student and I bought this calculator at best buy which they price matched at 125 for me. First when I pull it out the first thing people say is wow that calculator is in color. I just smile like yeah haha. When it comes to usage it is remarkable plus the battery is rechargeable and comes with the charger. The unit is slimmer than other calculators so if you are big on space saving it is just right. Just make sure you price match and it is definitely worth the price it comes out to the price as a bulky one that is not in color. It says one can load images on there but I have not ventured into that area yet

    Forget the 5 stars, I rate this product 100 stars. I am a college student and thought without a calculator I would try to memorize formulas. Although, I memorized many formulas throughout the first few weeks of a particular semester, it was 3x faster doing my problems with this "Bad Boy." The graphs are in color for easy pinpointing and multiple problem solving. Rechargeable battery - no hassle, and easily connects to a computer for extra downloaded programs. In addition, as an extra accommodation, pictures can be downloaded to personalize the background screen... Buy It!

    This model is required by my daughters high school, not a bad calculator. Easy to read and has all of the functionality you would expect plenty of memory, and the battery charge lasts a long time. In a classroom environment if the instructor is using the TI Interactive software, the ability to send problems to the students, and check their work remotely is a huge plus. However if you are looking for 'THE' Graphing calculator and do not mind spending a little more, the HP Prime is my go to at work, and is well used. By far the best choice.

    I had to retake some college courses due to the time that’s past since then. Getting old isn’t fun. My trusty go-to calculator then was a TI-85. Worked like a charm. I looked at all of the current TI’s and compared them. I found the 84 to be the best option for me. Had to retake basic chem 1 & 2, along with organic 1 & 2. It worked great and has many more capabilities since my original college run though. I would recommend it to anyone going into the sciences.

    I am a adult returning to college for the second time. I previously owned a Casio graphing calculator but I decided to purchase the TI because it is the most used by the education system. This calculator is a great help to me. I love the back-lit screen and the color graphing. I'm sure that this calculator will carry me through out the remainder of my college years. The only downside to this calculator is that you have to go through extra steps to perform some of the same functions that the Casio can do with the push of one button but once you get used to the TI it not a big deal.

    While researching quality graphing calculators, for my highschool aged child, this product continually came up as the best bang for the buck and they were correct. My daughter loves it and will continue to use it well into her collegiate years. I loved the sale price that I was fortunate enough to get from Best Buy at the time of purchase. I saved over $50 from most every online retailers and didn't have to wait for shipping. Win win.

    I bought this for the millions of math classes I am currently taking (and have to take in the future) and it's served me well. My only complaint about it is that this is such an expensive calculator in 2018 and the charging port is still a mini-USB port when pretty much every tech device nowadays uses a micro-USB port. So if you're traveling with this a lot or have it on the go a lot, then you need to remember to bring a mini-USB cable for it since you can't use the more common micro-USB cable.

    Great updates! My previous calculator was a TI-83. Since this calculator is not used every day, I no longer have to worry about whether or not I forgot to take the AA batteries out of the TI-83 calculator since it has its own lithium ion battery. Screen: Vibrant colors, especially useful when graphing for convenience and accuracy. Adjustable brightness of the screen is a great feature. Battery life lasts a very long time. Charger is versatile and can be used with a wall outlet and usb for added convenience.

    10th grade son needed a graphing calculator.

    After asking my son’s Integrated III math teacher what the difference was between this one and other similar calculators. He recommended this one. It can be used for the next 5+ years at least. His own high school son has this exact calculator and it works perfect for his needs. To me that’s the best answer. It came straight from the teacher himself not a sales guy that has no clue. Also, while purchasing this in the store, another person was there buying the same item(adult) for a college level class.

    This was the recommended calculator for my daughters advanced math class. Was told this should get her through college so thought why not, especially since it was at a good sale price. This is a very complex calculator but daughter seems to like it and has figured out what she needs for her class. I'm torn on the rechargeable battery though. It does hold a charge well, as just charged it this week for the first time and she has used almost daily since the beginning of school in August. Only problem was locating the charger!

    Excellent for any age. My daughterseventh grade pre-AP algebra teacher recommended this for her. They use a similar model in school, this one is in color which makes it easier for her to see the differences and graphing. She loves it and it is acceptable for ACT/SAT and it will carry her through college. My son Is seven years older and I bought his, the older model, 7 years ago and he still uses it although he would prefer the color and the charge-ability Of this one over buying batteries.
