Just for fun I bought a 9s to play around with. I must say, for the price, it really is lees bad than I expected. The keys work well and seems to have the fucntions one needs for basic stuff, although the layout is illogical and irritating...

The ENTER key is a real joke though, since it seems to function as no more than an '=' on a regular calculator. (And I thought they were giving youmg kids the RPN bug- no way!)

You can fix the length behind the decimal just like other HP's with FIX but what I can't figure out or find anywhere however is a comma separator for thousands...So big numbers not in engineering notation are just unreadable: 1,231,455,689.00 is just 1231455689.00 which I find impossible. Anyone know if this buggy has a comma somewhere? Thanks, Tadeyev

Well, I have foundd out that there is no comma available as thouands separator.. So, this 9s is bascially as good as a $2.00 calculator in real use. It belongs in the list below this thread ;-)
