In my opinion, the 35s is decent calculator, much better than what some "purist HP-fans" tends to express. There are some quirks, but nothing that has bothered me, during the 4(?) years of daily use.
The trig error (close to 90 deg), is of little importance, unless you plan to send a rocket to the moon, where the error in digit position 8 might be of importance.
The keyboard has a good quality and the display is OK (but not perfect, as it is difficult to distinguish "8" from the angular symbol theta).
