Oh, it's not heretical. I had to resist my impulse to buy a 15C or 16C when they first came out (boy was I stupid!) because in those days, my 34C was still going strong and I knew how to use it inside out. Heck, I'd STILL use it if it wasn't giving me erratic displays so often.
So, I remember the 12C through 16C calcs. Yes, the display on that series was beautiful, too, but they (way) predated the 20S. I really believe the 20S was the last HP calculator to have a less segmented LCD display. The display on the 48G series too a little getting used to, but after a while, they were fine, too, even if the native fonts reminded me a bit too much of that in the old DOS command line displays.
But seriously, I loved using my 32SII so much (oh, it so reminds me of the 34C except for its [dare I say it?... yeah, why not: ] reeeeeeeddddd LED display) that I didn't even notice its more segmented display until I had it side by side with the 20S.
