This TI-1795SV introduced together with the TI-503SV and TI-1706SV a new calculator design style in 2003. Compared with the first generation of the TI-1795SV the successor has an added tax functionality and uses a stylish coloring schema with a mixture of white, silver and black elements.

Main difference is the usage of much thicker plastic for the housing parts and a robust display window. The overall weight of the calculator raised from 3.1 ounces to 4.1 ounces.

The advertisment of the TI-1795SV found on the blister box: "Still the classic mini-desktop calculator  for home, office, or retail with big keys and extralarge display." 

In 2006 Texas Instruments upgraded the TI-1795SV and added a removable cover for much easier access to the internal battery of the calculator.
