HP-34C best and I'm stickin' to my guns



#2

Hi guys,
Well guess I'm the only guy in town who thinks
the 34C was the coolest unit. Good, then I'll be
the only bidder.

If you are comparing 15C to 34C, and think you
like the LCD, then you would jump to the 32S unit
because that is the most modern version......
you'll get a foggy, dust-filled, blurry LCD display,
you'll get smooshy mooshy keys that you aren't
even sure if you pressed,
you'll get 800 functions all in a bunch of
miserable soft-menu's that fog the mind,

INSTEAD of a well-thought-out cool practical tool
like the 34C. Look I can't quarrel with the
problem with the battery-charges why do you think
I "lost" my 34C years ago, I got tired of battery
charges and went to 32S. But nowadays you could
easily use Lithium rechargeable cells and do fine.

The buttons pushed right, it's nice looking, you
should be able to 'remember' whether its in
Degrees or Radians if you are actually solving
a problem, and if you want a more powerful unit
buy a more powerful unit, but be careful about
choosing a shoulder launched missile for swatting flies.

HP-34C is clearly underappreciated for the nicely
thought out treasure that it is. It's a sweetheart.
If they didn't build them right inside, apparently that
was just the earlier units.

All the best, - Norm
