Good, but could be better

FrozenInNH, Hewlett-Packard
18 March 2014
  • Summary: My experience with HP calculators includes using an original HP-35 some forty years ago when the model was new. It was an amazing encounter as up until that time one had to employ slide rules and books filled with tables of function values. Learning RPN was easy. My only discomfort was the disappointment that I didn't think of it first. My first HP calculator I bought for myself was an HP-25.

  • Summary: HP has a long tradition of building outstanding scientific calculators. The HP 35S continues that tradition. The operating system that controls calculator modes and menus is intuitive. The RPN system for evaluating mathematical expressions is just unbeatable. It is much faster than algebraic systems. It is much less prone to errors. The calculator is rugged, sleek and attractive to boot.

Worst HP keyboard ever used

wildbill69, Hewlett-Packard
12 March 2014
  • Summary: I've used HP's since the 80's, loved the 34C and my 11C. Unfortunately lost the 34C and used the 11C for over 20 years until last week when the display couldn't take commercial travel in unpressurized baggage compartments. Now I'm stuck with this 35S piece of garbage that I bought over a year ago and through in a drawer. I'd come to expect unequaled quality and performance of HP calculators and they don't offer anything close to the old 11C or the 34C keyboard feel.

A truly professional tool - great for the EE

mkingpen, Ebay

  • Summary: This one is my favorite so far. I have bought several. The calculator is very easy to use, has lots of memory, easy to program, and provides marked improvement in the area of complex number operations compared to the hp 32sii. As a EE I really appreciate this. The dedicated "i" key is a dream come true for an Electrical Engineering type like myself. My only complaint has to do with keyboard quality in terms of missed keystrokes on some units.

Keys give out!

JFJUSA1, Hewlett-Packard
17 October 2013
  • Summary: The keys on this calculator are horrible and start to malfunction within 4 months of owning it. They require too much pressure and do not hold up to constant use. I cannot rely of the results that I get. I have to double check (sometimes triple check ) my results. The keys are too hard and only respond if pressed very hard. I do like the layout and the appearance of it - I only wish that it worked better.

  • Summary: The product is fine and what we expected. But after we ordered it we found out it was on back order. It delayed things a few days but not too bad.

  • Summary: RPN calculators are hard to come by any more, but this one is just perfect. I actually am replacing my HP50g (~$150) with this one. For one, the 50g died after only 5 years and I didn't want to spend another $150 to replace it for the same thing to happen again. Hopefully this one lasts a lot longer. My TI's from H.S. still work 15 years later. But since then I have grown accustomed to RPN and don't want to go back.

HATE IT!!!!

jebsdaddy, Hewlett-Packard
8 August 2013
  • Summary: I am a mechanical engineer and had used a HP20 for the past 18 years or so and loved it. When it passed away, I bought the HP35S thinking it would be probably better. I loved it until I tried to do the most basic thing. I never drank the cool-aid regarding RPN and have managed to live productively for 53 years using algebraic entry. The HP35S offers both but that is the rub. In algebraic mode, the P.O.S. can't do the simple task of adding say 3 percent to 4 x 6.

WHAT A DOWNGRADE

cameron2, Hewlett-Packard
23 April 2013
  • Summary: I have been using a hp 32s rpn calculator for 22 years. Now I am stuck running this (35s) replacement, and it is a nightmare. Some genius desided to move all the buttons around, and worse yet the 35s no longer has the polar/recatngular convertion funtion that I used on a daily basis.
