You are familiar with this TEXET 800 calculator? 

You are right, this calculator - and the siblings CONCEPT VI, ESIC LED 80M, LJG 880, MBO caltron II, Neckermann TR-300, Ongnica 880, Perfect 100 SR, Rands 880, RJP 880, Satek 8M, Seneca 1000, Tronica 3000, Voesa 1200 - are a nearly perfect copy of the TI-1250.

Within the Datamath Calculator Museum we refer this calculator as Far East Generic Design II, it was introduced probably after the famous Design I. Don't miss the Design III, at least a calculator with a nice design.
