    Chances are, you're some kind of student. You will likely be asked to graph something or put something into a matrix, or do something normal calculators don't do. You're just about to buy this one maybe because it was recommended for a class or you want to save a few $$$'S because the 89 is more expensive. But at the end of the day this calculator old! Your cellphone do a better job plotting basic graphs. You're better off getting That Casio calculator with the better LCD screen and plots the don't look like something from Minecraft. Yes you might spend a few bucks more but you'll thank me on that test when you're asked to plot something and your Casio or Ti-89 plots graphs in seconds. This 84 takes forever and a day. And if the graph is not what you wanted you will spend even more time just trying to get something that should have not taken more than 5 seconds. Overall this calculator is Slow, had bad graphics, and can't even outperform your typical iPhone calculator app.

    Let's face it, there aren't a lot of choices on the market for a graphing calculator of this magnitude. Even worse is the school gave two models of one brand as acceptable - this was one! Although expensive, it does what I need it to and more. Great financial apps, interface is fairly intuitive, and it runs on AAA batteries which are fairly cheap to replace. There is minimal difference between the models, so unless you need a specific function, the less expensive models will do what you need (unless of course your course requires a specific model). Very happy so far - now if they would just program the answers to my homework! Only complaint is that it doesn't come with a very comprehensive instruction manual - in fact, nothing more than how to unpack and put the batteries in. Highly advise hitting YouTube or Kahn Academy and watching some videos on how to enter what you need. Overall, AWESOME!

    I purchased the TI 84 Plus Graphing Calculator for my son who is a college student taking a Statistics Math class. This calculator was used as an example by his instructor to get for the class and I'm so happy I bought it for him. I shopped around since its a little expensive however I was able to get it on sale at Best Buy and get my Reward points so I call that a WIN WIN PURCHASE. This calculator does everything from Math to Biology and Chemistry problems so it's an investment. I had purchased a lower priced graphing calculator however it ended up not being able to calculate all the graphing problems my son needed for his Math class so that's why I purchased the TI 84 Plus Graphing calculator since it does everything he needs and more.

    Required For School

    The new TI-84 Plus is a wonderful calculator. If anybody has had the TI-83 or 83 Plus, they know how easy and reliable it is. The 84 Plus is an all-around improvement on the older version and even worth the additional $15-$20. I have had it since school started and have noticed than any problem I enter, it is solved immediately upon pressing enter, or solve. The speed is a great improvement over the 83-Plus. The computer features are nice, but rarely used by myself. For anybody who is supposed to buy a TI series calculator for school, the 84 Plus us definitely the one to pick up this year and for the next few years I assume. Easy, fast, reliable, durable, and even sleek. As long as you handle it properly and use it enough, you will get all of your $110 out of the TI-84 Plus.

    Solid Graphing Calculator

    Bought this calculator for my statistics class. It's easy to use, with a pretty intuitive keypad. The secondary functions are easy to locate, and the calculator overall has a sturdy, well-made feel to it. It's a big calculator, but not so big that I can't hold it with one hand and punch in numbers with the other. (And i have very small hands.) Downloading/uploading programs is simple. I know there are newer, fancier graphing calculators out there, but this one suits my needs perfectly, and wasn't too terribly expensive compared to other calculators.

    Teacher Approved

    As an Advanced Algebra teacher in Williamsburg, IA, I highly recommend the TI 84 Plus Graphing Calculator. TI did a great job on the TI-82 that I bought 11 years ago when I was in high school but the improvements have been amazing. The graphs appear quicker and are easier to see and the calculator is just all around easier to use. In addition, the products available to teachers now that go along with the TI-84 Plus make it much easier on us to show the students how to use it.

    Good calculator to use because it's a standard

    Once you reach a certain level in High School, this graphing calculator is considered the standard. It's more expensive than others but the company did a good job of standardizing it with teachers and it's what they know how to teach using. Would have liked to buy a less expensive one, but I wanted my daughter to have what the teacher and other students are all using to avoid issues and ensure she is up to date with everyone else. Not worth her having to take extra time to learn something because her calculator operates a little differently.

    There are more powerful and more flexible calculators - mostly on tablet computers or laptops etc., but for school use purposes, this is probably the best. It simply is well designed, durable and has more than enough functionality to use in high school and college. It is highly portable and is accepted as an appropriate calculator from most educational facilities I've noticed. Also, the length of time this particular model and its predecessor has been around and used attests to its reliability. Great calculator!

    Best Buy had it available for same day pickup once I learned this was the calculator the school was ‘requiring’ students have for class this year. Apparently a ‘step up’ from the $100 TI calculator they required last year. No offense to TI or Best Buy but recommendation to parents, ask the school in advance what they are going to ‘require’ your child to have for next years class and maybe save yourself some $.

    The TI 84 Plus is a great product. I ordered it online late last night, and it was ready for pickup this morning. The price was a little less than any other retailers in my area, but a few dollars more than some online places. I decided to pay a few dollars more to get it at a retailer. I purchased one in the fall for another child, and it was$30 cheaper at Best Buy then. I'm disappointed it costs so much more now, which is why I gave 4 stars instead of 5.

    The BEST calculator for STATISTICS!

    I had to purchase a calculator for my Statistics class. I did not know which type to buy but the instructor recommended this brand and I am glad he did. This calculator is user friendly and it makes Statistics so much easier. I purchased the TI-84 Plus which is more advanced and requires less data entry. Batteries are included! If you want to know how to use this calculator there are many You Tube videos online that show you the basics. Buy with confidence!

    This is my second Ti-84plus calculator purchase. The first was for my current senior in high school, who is now taking a higher level math class. This purchase is for a freshman who also intends to take higher level math classes. The price paid is worth it due to the longevity. My child has not outgrown the calculator. The calculator is even approved for use on the SAT and ACT.

    I am really impressed with this product. When the problems get complicated, it is a great way to check answers for something I am not sure about. I wish I had something like this when I was getting my math degree. It has been thirty years since I have cracked a math book, but I have recently been asked to help someone in high school with their math and so back to some algebra, geometry, and beyond. This definitely helps.

    Awesome - But I would go for the TI 84 Color

    This calculator does some pretty awesome stuff, but if you are allowed to have the TI84 Color version for your college class, I would go for that instead. It's easier to use, offers more features, and the color is really helpful when using the graph with a lot of lines. Otherwise, this calculator does awesome, I have used it for 3 quarters and have not needed to change the batteries. Seems to be a great calculator, the other version is just better.

    This was required by my daughter's school. She's in 6th grade. While I can understand the need for this type of device in the higher grades and in college, I find it over-kill for this age level. That being said, you can graph the heck out of functions with it, and it gets multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction right over 99% of the time. Then again, so does the free calculator on my phone.

    This calculator is one of the ones required by the SAT and also my younger child's high school math classes. Another store ran out of this calculator and we had to get another one off the list. It was confusing to my child taking the SAT. We bought this one and my child felt more comfortable and will probably have a higher score on the second try of the SAT.

    I have purchased this calculator for each of my three kids over the past few years for use in middle school, high school, and college. It was worth the purchase rather than borrowing the school's calculators. They are excellent quality and the kids learn quickly how to use them. We had one where the backlight stopped working after two years but other than that they have all lasted many years and are reliable.

    Great calculator that does pretty much everything. It will take you a while to master using this calculator but as long as you can follow the instructions you can do anything with it. I needed it for a test and I was able to use it but wasn't able to learn all the functions in advance. If you have patience you can also go through all the menus and they are pretty self explanatory.

    Great calculator for high school student in AP

    My daughter lost her calculator so this was a replacement. This is easy to use and gets the job done. She is in Precalculus and my son had AP calculus and had the same calculator. This calculator is also allowed on the ACT which is something to consider if you are buying for a high school student. Compared to others, this one was reasonably priced for the functions it included. We were pleased with our purchase.
