Excellent product. Does not disappoint

Summary: General I was surprised at the power of this calculator. The User RPL language is quite rich and allows you to easily write interactive programs with nice menus, etc. Keyboard feel is very good, having the same tactile feedback as my HP 45 and HP 25, but the keys have a little less travel distance. Key pressure is slightly higher than the HP 25. Display is excellent. Complex number support is nearly seamless.
Summary: I used to have the 28S and I was very happy with it - I especially liked the solver menu and the way I could enter equations in RPN mode. I did not care too much for the graphing features, but I like (need) graphing calculators anyway because I have to see the stack. But my 28S died and I had to replace it - I figured the 50g has all the features and then some and that it therefore would be just as good.
Summary: The calculator is packed with features. I am a surveyor an dlong time hp calculator user. it is very powerful, but i miss the fact that i could type 10 keys without looking at the display like my 48GX or SX. the sd card makes it very versatile, because i sell survey programs for the 50G. the two major turnoffs are 1] not used to small ENTER key, and 2] the keys could ba a little more like the 48GX. Othe rthan that it's a great machine.
Summary: I happen to buy this product directly from HP. I had it for two weeks and the interal display broke. Called HP tech to find out about getting it repaired, and was told that it was my fault that it broke, and that it was not something that could be repaired, bottom line I was told I had to buy another at 160.00. I have had a complain into Hpheadquarters for about a week now and have not gotten a response. Next step is the better business bereau.
Summary: I upgraded when my 15+ y.o. HP48SX finally broke. The keys have moved from their previous locations and some keys that used to be a main level function are now shift functions. The 800+ page owners manual is poorly written as it tries to mix algebraic instructions and RPN. It appears they may have tried to make it feel more like the TI's and in the process left long time users in the dust.
Summary: 1) This calculator is slow. Any operations require a fraction of second for it to "think". 2) It only comes with very few e-lessons. No more e-lessions available from HP web sites. 3) The infrared port is useless. I couldn't share data or programs with anyone. Very few people are using this calculator. 4) The cable which allow this calculator connects to PC sold seperately.
Summary: .... This calculator is really bad. it requires about 1/4 second delay for every simple calculation(e.g. 1+1=2, 2*2=4). it takes even longer for a more "complex" calculation (e^x, log, arctan...). I'm am engr graduate student at Penn State. There are lots of HP equipments in my lab and they are great. I just can't imagine how a HP graphing calculator can be so slow. ... i give it 2 stars because it's light and fancy.
opnião sobre a calculadora hp50g sua programação, execução e principalmente o funcionamento de seus

Summary: sem conclusão!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pros: possui recursos avançados para aplicação na engenharia civil
Cons: comprei mas nem usei direito, somente ligando quando coloca as pilhas e desligando quando tira. Quando ligada não aceita comando das teclas, provável falha de programação ou memória. No entando o fornecedor está providenciando resolver o problema
Summary: Não entendo como um fabricante como a HP ainda não resolveu o problema das calcuradoras gráficas 50G! A empresa é até muito cortez e troca o produto defeituoso, porém o fato de continuar dando problema me deixou insegura a respeito da qualidade deste tipo de calculadora fabricada por eles..
Pros: A calculadora tem muitas funções.
Cons: Estou preocupada com a qualidade da HP 50 , pois comprei 2 calculadoras em menos de 2 anos ,e as duas deram o mesmo problema, ela não desliga, entrei em contato com a hp a primeira vez e eles trocaram agora não estou conseguindo trocar porque o meu vendedor do ML não me mandou a nota fical quer que eu devolva a calc e não estou tendo tempo de ir ao correio, sinceramente estou arrependida poi tive o azar de ter problemas com as duas que comprei . Um colega meu depois d...
