Is 50g good or crap?

RE: Is 50g good or crap?
The problem is simply that I hadn't visited this forum for years and only did recently just on a whim.

FWIW I am 100% sure that more people would buy the WP 34S if only they knew about it.

Now, bear in mind, even though I have not visited this forum for years, I have searched from time to time for RPN calculators. As I mentioned, I already bought two 15c LE (one to use, one to keep) and have also bought an extra 11c (my first HP was an 11c and I still have that one; both 11c are in my bank's safe deposit box, no kidding).

I am selling my 33s (actually on eBay right this moment; getting upwards of $60 and I don't really care, because I hate the screen and never used it; I saw someone mention it goes for $180, so we'll see if the auction luck comes to me today).

So anyway what I mean is, even with searching on eBay to buy RPNs and generally googling around, somehow I never came across the WP 34S. I even searched for non-HP units (I bought a couple of financial ones that were cheap clones of the 12C but used AA batteries; I think they are called Victor or something; still in blister packs somewhere).

I think significantly more awareness of the WP needs to be done especially if a new unit is coming out. Maybe get the word out in trade magazines, and especially technology websites that talk about geeks and hackers hacking on electronics, devices, etc.

(There's plenty of talk about Arduino etc. as I am sure you guys are aware; plenty of interest these days in flashing stuff, hacking stuff, repurposing stuff, etc.).

BTW I am using the super excellent i41CX emulator in my iPhone/iPad and it is awesome but nothing beats a real thing in your hand when you need to punch out some numbers. I guess I am old school enough to want to write the calculations down by hand as I go, maybe because I don't trust the spreadsheets not to have typing errors.
