    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.

    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!

    The year was 1999. I was pondering all too carefully what kind of threads I'd be wearing come the new school year. But all I could really think about was exactFull Review
