The seemingly attentive 49g+...



#3

I've noticed something disturbing about the 49g+: when I complete a calculation, and some time passes (ie: not enough idle time to turn off, but more than a minute..)..then I begin to key in 5.249 (for example)..it only registers .249 !! As if it is in a sleepy standby?

Anyone else notice this? Unfortunately, its not something one would catch during an in-store tryout..

On a + note, the 49g+ seems noticeably faster than the 49g.

Also...HP users still have trig functions as primary keys...while the ti-89 Titanium has both trig and inv trig as shifted operations...!

Your observation is correct. To save battery consumption the 49g+ spends most of its time in low clock frequency mode. When you start inputing again, while it switches to a higher frequency it may miss some keystrokes.
One solution is to turn it off when you don't use it.
