5.0 out of 5 stars If you love handheld calculators, this is the thing to have, 6 Nov. 2009
This review is from: HP 50G Calculator (Office Product)
This calculator is the perfect companion for those with a scientific mind.
You can calculate or evaluate a function for whatever comes to your mind.
However, you need to embrace this calculator, i.e. use it every day. If you don't you will definetely need the users guide, even for simple calculations, and if not handy, you will just stare helpless at the keyboard.
So it is complex machine, but as a scientist you are of course prepared to give it all the loving care and attention it requires.
The only negative point for me is the display: the resolution is rather poor and you have to look perpendicular to the display, which is difficult when the calculator is on your desk.
You have also to know that with a memory card inserted, when switched-on, the display remains blank for 3 sec.
But even with these 2 annoyances, I give the machine 5 stars.

Reformat the SD card as FAT16 instead of FAT32. No more startup delay.

You can format the card on a PC if you have a card reader, or in the calculator itself. There are instructions on HP's site. Search for "format sd card hp 50g". Don't forget that a format will wipe all data from the card, so make a backup first if you need the files.
