Summary: I love the WriteView feature that this Sharp Calculator has and all of the other useful computational features as well. However, the new model of this calculator feels flimsy, plastic-y, and too light-weighted. There is one improvement to this model: Sharp got rid of their protruding display design and instead put the display lower to the rest of the calculator. My old sharp model had its screen all scratched up because the display was raised.
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. It has many functions, in fact more than I even need, however, for me just understanding and learning how to use the functions is turning into an actual hobby for some reason.
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 it was almost like having a math book. This calculator comes with a sheet of paper that basically shows you the functions that are available on the calculator.
Summary: Before this calculator I had a similar sharp calculator with writeview. I used the calculator through high shool and lost it just this summer, during my college math class. I looked all around for a calculator with writeview and found this which was almost exactly identical to my old one just a little prettier. I love this calculator, the best part forme is being able to change the form the answers are written in.
This is a great calculator and you can't go wrong with it

Summary: This is a great calculator and you can't go wrong with it. I think that the Casio FX-115ES plus is easier to use than this sharp calculator. However, this is just my personal opinion. The calculator itself does everything it should and you really can't go wrong with either one.
Summary: Sharp had a good thing with the w516, then came out with this new version of it. The plastic is very cheap feeling, I feel dirty even touching it. I've switched over to the Casio EX115ES+. The materials are much better, though the I do prefer the constants on the sharp, as well as the way it handles complex numbers. If you can find one of the old versions (no silver), snag one. Note: you can not use this on the EIT.
Summary: Following a period of "running" I have imposed upon myself, I can now pronounce. This calculator is complete in its field and for my needs me. This update type calculators Sharp EL-546g is a great success.
Summary: I own this calculator because of the writeview display, which ensures you don't make a mistake. Additionally, for trig, it is useful because it solves all unit circle sin, cos, etc., down to the 15 degrees.
