Sharp EL-506 vs. T.I. 30X IIS

George Obregon "/Lonewolf™", Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: I am very happy with my newly-purchased EL-506 Sharp scientific calculator. Compared to the more expensive (and identical-sized) TI 30X IIS, the very important First-function keys on the Sharp EL-506 are: "Exp" "RCL" STO" "M+" even "X^3" . . . In addition, you can store FOUR equations in the F1, F2, F3, F4 memories to recall later. I love the simplicity of the TI 30X IIS, but I HATE the asterisk * used to denote "x" for multiplication. It bugs me to no end.

OK, not great

  • Summary: I think the Casio fx series of solar calculators is more intuitive. I don't like the button placement for most of the 2nd functions.

Sharp EL-506WBBK

Mike "Mike", Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: I am in the engineering field and use a calculator all day, everyday. I had the previous model to this one and loved it. The DMS to DD is the one thing Sharp has that I have trouble finding on any other calculator. This is a duplicate of my original Sharp except for the case. Love the calculator, hate the case! The case is hard to open and close.

POS

Mr. James M. Mcdonald, Amazon
25 March 2012
  • Summary: No POS is not a math term. This calculator is a piece of #$%^. Unless you are an engineer or have access to someone who can explain to you why when squaring the sum of two exponents you need a bevy of parentheses you are wasting your time with this. The manual is pretty much a joke being that nothing is explained to any degree. For what it it worth you are better off buying a graphing calc for anything real and a simple calc with DMS for trig.

Not So Good If Keys Go Bad!!

Mark R. Jorgensen, Amazon
16 December 2011
  • Summary: Well, it worked for sixteen months before numeric keys 5 and 6 stopped working -- four months beyond the warranty limit. When comparable Sharp calculators were still made in Malaysia they were excellent. Granted, this one may have more features but what good is it with two bad keys? I probably will not buy the Sharp brand again if I have a decent alternative.

  • Summary: This line of SHARP calculators are excellent for Math and Science. The thing that makes me recommend them to students is the fact that they have both Stats functions and a good Fraction key, as well as all the other useful scientific functions. Not all scientific calculators have both a fraction key and stats functions, and when they don't have both, my students end up buying two calculators.

  • Summary: This calculator will take time to learn, but is optimal for basic statistics and calculus functions. I do not always need a great size calculator or software program for basic functions! I recommend this to others!

  • Summary: I have used a previous generation Sharp calc for years as a student and an engineer. I'm picky on button feel and layout. Sharp must have had success with the design since it was very close to my old calc with a few improvements. It is well worth the money if you do not need a graphing calc.

Good calculator - wimpy buttons.

Brian Wegener, Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: This calculator does what it is supposed to. It has a fairly large display. The buttons are soft (not like a higher priced HP). the price was really inexpensive.
