How about cheapest financial calculators? I found these on TAS:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Busicom-Scien...Sw1LRZt8w1

I don't know what relationship these cheapo calculators have to the original Japanese "Busicom" calculator brand. EDIT: According to Wikipedia, this particular "Busicom" brand is used by Broughtons & Co.(Bristol) Ltd of the UK. They bought the name "Busicom" from the failed Japanese company.

Hi Gamo.

I found the site rather poor for a couple of reasons.

1) If it is going to review financial calculators including four function machines all the way up to top of the line, that is way too broad and makes it less useful.

2) The criticism it makes of the 12cp (RPN) it then turns around and criticizes another machine for not having RPN. Can't be a plus and a minus.

3) The 10bII+ does not have the limitation it is complaining about. It had a large data space for cash flows and statistical data that it shares - true - but compared to the TI BAII Plus, it has more space for either or both.

I think the site was not put together by someone who was very knowledgeable of financial calculator offerings.

My 2 cents.

I thought the Sharp QS-2130 should have been listed on their "Best Accounting Calculators" page. It doesn't really fit in with the other calculators listed on their "Best Financial Calculators" page as it has no functions typically found on a financial calculator (TVM etc.).

And they ignore the Sharp EL-738 models, which are generally excellent, and easily beat TI's offerings.

17bII and 12C are co-champions from my perspective.

If the hardware was better, I’d add the 30b.
