Which do you have?

Mine is recessed.

If I am holding it in my hands at an angle using it and then say sit it down on my desk it becomes unreadable unless I change the contrast. Really anytime you change angels even slightly you have to change the contrast as well.

My 35s is pretty good at most angles, and my 41cv really doesn't have a bad angle at all. If either of these calculators even have a contrast adjustment I have never used it.

The display is really disappointing. At least I have a DM42 on the way from the Netherlands. Smile

DM41X, DM42, HP-41CV, HP-42S, HP-35S, HP 95LX - EDIT: I seldom post without an edit.
