Is this rare?


I have a hard case that fits my 42s. The case is made by Astech and matches the color of the 42s. The front of the case folds back over the top and becomes a stand that holds the calc at a slight angle. The case has a raised tab on each side that matches the grove on the side of the calculator so that the calculator is securely locked into the case. I have never seen another one other than mine and I was just curious if I have a gem or just another case...


Um, do you want to sell it? If not, do you know where I can get one?



They are pretty rare. Once in a while they appear on eBay, but not very often. This is probably the best case for any Pioneer series calculator.


Hi Daniel,

I agree with Han:

This is probably the best case for any Pioneer series calculator.

It's the best case around for the Pioneer, especially if you plan on using it for your work calculator in the field. They are fairly rare - they will occasionally appear on ebay. One did just this past week.

I was lucky and bought two brand new a few years ago from a person who had a few new old stock. I paid $75 per case and they were well worth it. His stock has long run out.

Enjoy the HP-42S and keep the case to protect it.



Are there any good images of this case on the web? Could somebody post a few?



I just took a couple of photos this morning.
Send me your e-mail address and I'll e-mail them to you.



I have decided to sell the case. I have a full listing with pics in the "Classified Ads" section. Check it out!
