This Toshiba LC-8000 shares place #1 of the "most boring LCD calculators" with the Canon LC-32. We found nothing exciting with this product.

Even dismantling the LC-8000 is frustrating, the printed circuit board (PCB) is bonded to the calculator housing with a heat staking design and we can't reveal the manufacturer of the single-chip calculator circuit.

Don't miss the later HB-101.
