Summary: I had a calculator like this and had given it to my son. I felt like I had lost something very important. I really like this calculator so I saw this and had to have it. It meets and exceeds my expectations. Thanks very much.
Summary: This is a very nice calculator. It has most of the features only found on a large desk top model. The keys are a nice size and it has a tilt feature for easy viewing. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is that it does not have a "Off" key. You have to let it do it's auto-off feature after 7 minutes of innactivity.

Summary: The SHARP ELSI-MATE EL-339HB 12 DIGIT CALCULATOR has been around for quite a time. Whilst other calculators get replaced by newer, (and usually less satisfying), models, (or, perhaps worse, never replaced by new models at all), this Elsi-mate EL-33-9HB caculator goes proudly on and on! I've had mine since 2004, and never get tired of looking at it, or using it. I use calculators - a lot. It IS boring to use the same calculators all the time..
Summary: OK, I probably could live without it, but I wouldn't want to! I have used this calculator every single day (Monday-Friday) at work for the past 2 and a half years. It's a great calculator and it's on my Christmas list this year so I can have one to use at home as well! I love the Cost, Sell, Margin functions. The buttons are nice and big, so you can easily punch in and crunch numbers on the fly. It's definitely durable - no problems at all in that department.
Summary: Nice calculator. I like the number display. It is a good replacement for my old HP. I prefer numerous digits to numerous functions. I just use it for basic math and therefore would not want a cornucopia of functions. Have not had it too long, so can not vouch for durability.

Summary: Sharp's on-line store wanted $14.95 for this EL-339h Elsimate calculator and at that price it was a good value. I like the durable metal casing, the large 12 digit LCD display, the angled prop below, the large keys and the ample spaces between the keys. The only negative is using this for scientific applcations with three decimal points or more. The answers are just not accurate enough for advanced school or work in statistics.
