The stylus is an absolute necessity, and I will be ordering some extras from Casio soon due to my propensity for misplacing such things. It has a perfectly fine slot on the calculator's side for storing it, but I know myiself well enough to seek some spares.
The only thing I can complain about is something that most users will not consider to be a fault. My tired old eyes, that are far from being as sharp as they once were, would have appreciated a display that would have permitted the graphics thereon to be a bit larger. The display is sharp and distinct, but I would have been happier with it a bit larger.
It is not only a very capable and sophisticated calculator, but it is also fun to use. Of course, being able to easily manipulate and to fool around with all the 'what ifs' and 'why nots' that come to mind can waste a lot of time; but then they might possibly yield something exciting and useful.
I bought the Casio 330 AFTER I already purchased the Hewlett-Packard 50G AND the Texas Instruments nSpire with TI-84 keyboard. The HP is a quality product built to the standards of their long line of calculators. The TI nSpire represents great value for the price along with a widespread user community. I kept the HP because of its external SD storage capability although it will take me a long time to master the keyboard and internal functions. I'd rather not spend the time required with the HP to master its capability. I was a former jet aircraft pilot and I like to joke that the HP is more complex than my old aircraft cockpits. Regrettably, I returned the TI nSpire/84 because the display was so dim that my eyes hurt after ten minutes of straining. When calculators like the TI have adjustments for contrast, it's really an erroneous understanding because when you increase font contrast, you also increase the contrast of the background screen which means the font does NOT improve relative to its screen background.
The Casio 330 has tremendous contrast range which actually works. I even left the contrast setting at the default level because it is super, even for my old, tired eyes. The screen has stylus touch ability that HP and TI both lack. This makes the Casio operate a lot like a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA). It's intuitive, responsive, and fun to work with. There are applications, functions, and modes of operation common to other high-end devices along with the ability to connect to a desktop. If you feel that Casio is limited to low-end, low-cost devices, think twice and give this calculator a chance. If you purchase it from Computer Brain through Amazon, you'll discover like I did that it's the perfect solution to other troublesome calculators. One last thing-the Casio comes with a hard-shell protective case, startup manuals, cable connectors, batteries, and the best news of all - IT'S NOT PACKED IN A BUBBLE-PACK which is often impossible to open. Casio comes in a nice, "retro" box.
1-stylus pen operation is very nice.
2-excellent screen contast much better than the Ti nspire.
hint(if you purchase this calc. take the transparent protective sheet out from the lcd screen, this will boost the contrast a lot.)
3-very fast 3D ploting and easier to rotate with the pen.
4-super near perfect electronic manual.
5-built in Laplace and fourier transforms and FFT.
6-ease of use.
1-we couldn't figure out if it is allowed in SAT, may be not.
the casio FX9860 II plus (not yet on amazon) is allowed in SAT.
it does nearly every thing like the TI 89/84 and it costs half.
it has a back light screen, and does every thing a high school student needs to do.
plz have a look on youtube for a demo. it is nice.
