I bought a HP-33S some months ago even if a lot of negative coments were post here. I finally found that the calculator is a great one but have some problems.
- I don't think the decimal point is too small; i put a comma insted,,,
- Th real problem i can is is one that i didn't read much : pressing keys require too much force. I often use my calc when going to bed and it is difficult to make an easy contact when the calculator is not on a hard surface.
Now, some days ago i received a HP-32sII. Well i'm sure you all think like me : i prefer the size of that one, but i do really prefer the 2 lines display of the 33s.
Wow, what a keyboard : i really like the feeling of the 32sII; easy to push but have a great feedback.
The color scheme is, in my opinion, better with the 32sII; more easy to find keys you don't use too often.
Th V shape of the 33S is not annoying; it is only there to sell more with younger than me so if RPN is alive with this estetics caracteristics, why not!
But even if i find that the 32sII is better calculator i just realize that it cannot be very useful for my use: i just put 4 "small" equations and i don'T have enought memory too solve it! ouf... on my 33S i have 10 times equations than that and no problem with memory.
What can be really nice is a calculator that have the both good side of each calculators + IR printing (or at least a mini USB port for programs transfer)
2 lines display, data transfer, conservative color scheme, great keyboard, good size. If calculators can have child, the kid of the 33 and 32 should be a dream! :-)
