Summary: Great instrument; makes my job easier. It gives exact answers and has much better precision as compared to other calculators. As a Math teacher, though, it makes me reconsider not assigning marks for certain calculations that were previously laborious. This calculator does it all.
Summary: This calculator is the best value and you will get the most functionality for your money. You can do almost everything (except graphs) and it is more capable than similarly priced TI and Casios.
Good cheap calculator, will almost surely do whatever any other scientific calculator can do, probably more.

Summary: I have been using this calculator for 2 semesters now, 2 full classes in algebra. This calculator is much better and more usable than the single line screen scientific calculators because of its multi line write view feature.
Summary: I purchased this model (EL-W516X) because I already owned the EL-W516 and liked it. I wanted another El-516 for work but couldn't find one so I got the EL-W516X, which appears to be its replacement. I'm disappointed with the EL-516X.
Summary: I have been looking for an easy to use calculator for a long while now. This one is very funtional, specifically WriteView. It allows you to type in calculations as you would write them, as compared to other calculators where you have to remember what key you entered causing you confusion and having...
Rich set of features, easy to use, and amazingly affordable. I use it more than my TI-89!

Summary: Most benefits and features of this calculator have already been well described by other reviewers, so I will just give you my person experience. As a software engineer that uses mathematics on a daily basis, I find this calculator to exceed my expectation terms of usability and feature set.
Summary: I have used a Sharp scientific calculator since 1992. It's never stopped working even looks old. I'm still using it. So, when my son complained about his calculator, I ordered this for him. He always use this one and likes it now. When he got it, he came and showed to me how he surprised.
Summary: Kind of seems like someone is playing a joke on me when I input "5" "/" "4" "=" and get "5/4" or "1-1/4" as the answer! Yes, you can force it to give a decimal answer but for every dammed calculation!
