        Decent calculator

        By Mercedes

        from Saskatoon, SK

        Comments about Sharp® EL520XBWH 12-Digit Scientific Calculator:

        I kinda have a thing for calculators, not sure why. I've always been partial to the Casio fx-991MS, so it was with some hesitation that I bought the Sharp EL-520X when I found a hoard of them for dirt cheap at an auction house. But for the price of a latte, I figured it was worth the risk.

        This is a very good calculator for most students. It does fractions, solves simple equations, and even does a little calculus. There are some features missing compared to my beloved fx-991, and if I were buying them at Staples where the price is comparable, I'd still choose the Casio, but this calculator will serve you well.

        The keys are well laid out, the most common functions are single-key, and only the 2nd F key is needed for the other most common. Like any calculator, you have to jump through some hoops to get to the equation solvers, but that's the trade-off for not having a zillion keys you'll probably never use.

        My biggest complaint is that there's no sticker explaining the unit conversions or constants, and the quick reference card is easily lost. My fx-991 has a guide printed inside the case that says what all the conversion/constants codes are,. That's something I would change about the EL-520X -- it would cost them nothing, because they already have a sticker explaining the set-up menu, which you don't really need because it's easy to figure out and it's in the manual (so you'd look it up once and then remember how to do it), unlike a list of arbitrary conversion codes that you have to look up every time.

        Great value for this Calculator

        By Staples Customer

        from Toronto

        Comments about Sharp® EL520XBWH 12-Digit Scientific Calculator:

        I recommend anyone to get this calculator because it offers many useful Math functions needed in Math and Science from grade 9 till the last year of university/collage and beyond in the workplace.
        I also like this calculator because it's solar powered (no need for batteries).

            Comments about Sharp® EL520XBWH 12-Digit Scientific Calculator:

            The best thing about this that it works by solar power with a back-up battery. So, it is perfect for the exams. The problem is that recalling its functions is inconvenient and confusing with too many "shifted" buttons.

              At first, it was great, had all the functions i needed. Not even a month in and the zero and decimal buttons stop working.
