Summary: It is a very light calculator which to some might make it seem cheap but it's that much less weight in a student's backpack or engineer's briefcase. Love everything about this calculator. Coaching my eldest child through homework is easier when we can work with fractions right on the display.
Summary: I bought this calculator for my stats class, and it worked out perfectly. It is not the most advanced calculator, but it is able to do many of the functions that were required. The layout of the keys make it very easy to navigate.

Summary: I owned a 1980s Sharp EL5100S which I really liked primarily for 1 feature which was that you could type in an algebraic expression up to 80 chars long, press = to get a result, then recall the expression to edit it and recalculate the new expression.
Summary: great essential functions, easy to use with practice. just mess with it for a couple of days and you'll be good. and now a story : my high school teacher lend me this calculator and I loved it so much I "forgot" to give it back to her.
Summary: Sharp out did themselves with this calculator. I own a ti-83, 84, and 89 graphing calculators, as well as ti-30 and 30x. I love and collect calculators and for practical use, thing thing blows every other calculator out of the water.
Summary: I did not feel comfortable with this Sharp's oversize, display clarity, keypad or the layout. I have an older TI-30XIIS that I have used for two years and I thought that this Sharp ELW535XBSL would be a good replacement. The TI has a very dim display and the Sharp is not much better.
Summary: I used this calculator for my Applied Statistics university class. At first I bought a TI-84, but returned it when I discovered that this calculator was more than capable of meeting my needs and at a fraction of the cost of the Texas Instruments models.
Summary: Nice calculator, but the instructions are very hard to figure out. I am 77 years old and self teaching myself Algebra (I did well with it in College) to keep my mind sharp. I thought that this would be a good aid for me in figuring out the problems, but I'll need a course in calculators to...
