35s: comma and fraction mark ?? - ChristianB. - 07-19-2007

Hi,

could someone with the new 35s show pictures of the display with 222,222.222 typed in.

I really would like to see, if there are improvements in the readability of the fraction mark / comma compared to my 33s (which I will sell soon on ebay).

Cheers

Christian

Does your 33s have the improved display? To my eyes, the display of my new 35s looks identical to the display of my 33s that has the improved display. For a visual comparison of the original 33s display to the improved 33s display, look here.

I expect that the market will soon be flooded with used 33s's, and they can be had new for less than $40, so their value on eBay probably won't be much.

The picture augments one should use commas for important separations and dots for others. At least on the 35s and 33s :)

Thanks for the pics.

My 33s has the old display. The improved one looks really better.
