Thanks for identifying it, Pekis. It doesn't look bad, function-wise, but it would be better if they cloned the EL 506A instead! The "poopiest" reference was more to do with calculator in the picture looking like it had been pulled from a dumpster. The packaging looks like it would have been a cardboard and plastic blister pack, originally. (Some guy on ebay has a batch of these for sale. You'd think he'd clean it up a bit for the photo!)

On a number of these the STAT function does nothing. I was lucky that the one I bought works the way the manual says it should. A few weeks later, a person from this forum asked me to buy one for him (he insisted on paying me for it) and I bought one from the same store (Dollar Tree) where I bought mine and the STAT function no longer worked. I went back to the store once more and tried all the calculators on the display and none of them had a working STAT function. Oh well, for 99ยข what can you expect?
