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.

Rich set of features, easy to use, and amazingly affordable. I use it more than my TI-89!

I use this calculator as almost my hobby now with all of the functions available

Summary: I purchased this calculator along with many others due to my not paying attention while in high school to now find myself in college and realizing that I should have been listening more then. This calculator does more than I could even think could be done.
Summary: Probably deserves a rating of 5 stars in terms of functionality but a big fat zero for the instructions. It used to happen that scientific and engineering type calculators would come with an instruction book that would explain how to perform the various functions of a calculator in such a way that...
