Hi all.

I’m the happy (to a point) owner of both the 516T and X models. Since only register M carries over to other modes as well as the limitation that trig and logarithmic functions as well as several other functions are unavailable, just how useful do you find that the 516 models are despite their limitations?
I think the Sharps are pretty useful but I must admit that they are not my favorite calculators. My favorite feature of the Sharps that some of them had formula storage. I'm not happy that was taken away.

Agreed. Any idea what Sharp was thinking by dropping the function memories?
