Just for the record, I also have a 12c Platinum. I like the buttons on the 12c more than the rubber membrane on the V12, but the bigger screen on the V12 makes up for that.
Also, if you haven't drunk the RPN kool aid (which I suggest you do... it is a really great way of interacting with a financial calculator) you can press the "R" button followed by the "EEX" button, and the calculator will switch into standard algebraic operation. To switch back to RPN, press "R" followed by the "CHS" button.
- Build quality: the HP is designed to be thrown in a briefcase and have things dumped on it. The V12 is much more of a desktop style. THe HP feels like it uses more of a polymer/epoxy frame, while the V12 is hard plastic and looks a bit cheap.
- Key feedback: the HP has a satisfying clich, while the v12 is a bit more mushy. The key fit a bit better in the cut outs on the HP.
- Size: Despite having almost the same footprint (the V12 is a bit bigger), the form factor of the V12 is a lot bulkier.
- Case: I like the pouch for the HP 12C Gold better- it protects the calculator without being bulky. The new HP Platinum 12 case is a bit bulkier than on the 12C Gold, but is real leather. The V12 had the bulkiest case of any of the three and is made of "pleather" or some such petrolium based product. It still works.
- Uses AAA batteries instead of CR2032 batteries in the HP platinum or watch batteries in the regular HP.
- Screen is a bit larger and angled on the V12 which is nice when you are using it on a desk.
- 1/3 of the price of the HP 12C.
- I've tested it out on some medium difficult time value caculations and got the same answers as the 12C. Always a good sign.
- RPN!!! I love RPN
- Looks cheap- less likely to be stolen off a desk.
Factoring in the price, definately a 4-5 star purchase. I've only had it for about a month, using it every work day, so we'll see how long it lasts.
I already own the HP-12C "classic" 30th Anniversary Limited Edition. I bought this clone as an extra RPN calculator for the kitchen. It is an amazing bargain at 10 dollars. Don't even think of buying it at the list price of 40 dollars. If you are willing to pay that much, spend the extra 20 dollars and buy the real thing.
Two selling points of this clone for me were the larger LCD display and the regular AAA batteries. It's true, the digits are larger than the 12C. But for reasons that I cannot comprehend, the decimal points and commas are microscopic. Under dim light, it is quite difficult to see them. The tilt of the LCD screen is another attempt to make the screen more legible. But here's the problem. The red sub-labels on black keys is a suboptimal color combination. The red labels become impossible to read when the desk lamp reflects at a certain angle. When I rotate the calculator to make the red labels legible, I can no longer read the LCD screen because of the tilt. Sigh. It turns out that the HP-12C, with its smaller keypad and LCD screen, is actually easier to read than this bigger clone.
I'm not sure sure how long the AAA batteries will last, but one of the 2 AAA batteries was dead on arrival. I replaced it, and the calculator worked without problems.
In summary, 4 stars at 10 dollars. 2 stars at 40 dollars. As long as you pay only 10 dollars, and remember that you often get what you pay for, you'll be happy.
Pros: -- Works just like the HP12C Financial Calculator and is faster.
-- Uses AAA batteries rather than CR2032's. Costs less and stays up longer.
-- Since cost is minimal, I don't worry about taking it out of my home.
Cons: -- Keyboard is a bit mushier, display is not quite as easy to read.
-- Original no-name batteries are subject to leaking chemicals. Throw away upon arrival and put in a good set of Duracell or Energizer AAA's, save yourself some grief.
The included batteries were dead on arrival but the calculator was flawless along with the button case, and the manual was sufficient to get me started. I guess I am just excited to see the programmable calculator live on!
