HP 35s Scientific Software Calculator

This calculator should not be used for simple calculations, as it may appear cluttered to the average user

HP 35S

 

Someone mentioned the 15C. The 15C is still available, at the HP website, in a nice limited edition. I bought one. :) sweet.

Simple, big keys, nice shape like my old 41CX, naturally RPN.

Display is weak, keys not as firm as my 41CX, or 15C. This calc is OK for the backpack, rough handling, commuting computing ....

Not great but good support

 

On the merits of the calculator alone, I would give it 3 stars, but because I received prompt customer service from HP I give it 4. After 10 months of owning this calculator, the numbers 1&2 would work only intermittently. To be honest, I didn't expect...

Key layout good

Hexadecimal operation very cumbersome. My HP-33S was much more intuitive.

Almost like the old days

 

I'll get used to it. There is no alternative for a familiar RPN calculator for everyday use. If it lasts I'm satisfied. Like millions of others I can't figure why someone doesn't make a 41 CX with a modern case, cpu and external connections. NE sat on...

Keys feel good and the arrangement is ok for an old user of the 41 and 42 series. Batteries are 2 x 3v CR 2032 "coins". The functions are familiar too, with the addition of some conversions on the keys

Feels strange in the hand because it's both very light and very large in comparison to the 40 series models. No input or output method. Huge battery cover for 2 coin cells

Quality RPN

 

More expensive than others but you get what you pay for. This is for serious college students and engineers who make their living using a calculator. Browse your manual and learn a little about it and you'll learn to appreciate what it can do.

Has all the features you need for engineering work and college math. RPN is the biggest pro. If you don't know how to do RPN, learn it and you will understand why people pay more for RPN calcs. Calculations are faster and easier to understand and keep...

No printed manual. Manual is a pdf file on a disc. >:(

HP35s

 

This was a replacement for my previous HP35s...used it too much and wore out the keys

The calculator is a great RPN with the option for algebraic function if you really want to go to the dark side. Great RPN calculator for the money.

Slight limitation on the speed at which you can punch in keys i.e. skips functions and numbers sometimes. Just need to slow down a bit.
