This is an excellent calculator. It is quite light and so can slide around if put on a smooth surface, but I find if I put it on some paper or a book or something like that, then the grip is ok. I also use it without sliding the protective cover back on to the back of the calculator (if you see what I mean).
The keys are the hard plastic type (not the soft rubber ones) so they pop straight back after you have pressed them and dont get stuck. Keys are also very responsive.
Display is clear and large. You can see the equation you are typing at the top of the display, and the answer at the bottom. There is a 'del' button which you can use to cancel out the last number you typed if it was wrong, it has a host of functions and is very good value for money. I got the white one, but it comes in a number of different colours. Very happy with it so far.
Update: I gave this 5 stars initially, but unfortunately I have had to come back to downgrade it to a 4 star. The main reason is because is does not have a dedicated 'ANS' button to recall the last answer you calculated. It DOES have an 'ANS' function, but this is effectively a 3rd function on the '=' button. You have to press the 'ALPHA' button then the '=' button to recall your last calculated answer (i.e. you are pressing 2 buttons, rather than just one). To make things worse, the '=' button has a 2nd function 'PEN', and the 2nd function (2nd F) and 'ALPHA' buttons are close together, therefore in a pressured situation, you could easily press '2nd F' rather than 'ALPHA' and thus have to reperform 2 calculations if you did not write the first answer down/do not remember it. I think this is bad enough to deduct a star especially given that the '=' button is so large it could easily have been split into an 'ANS' button and an '=' button.

Great calculater. it's scientific and if you work out without reading manual they you will end up faulty and you want to bin it but wait a sec , turn it back there is a reset button inside the hole. press it with a pin and back to factory default new item. Hope it helps. Dad nearly threw it away for that thankfully brought it back to me .

Beware the toggling between degrees, Radians and gradients only takes one accidental press of one button. Under pressure it is easy to miss the display and end up with an incorrect answer. With other brands this function takes more that one press to change, hence is safer.

The functionality of the 'Rectangular' Sharp EL 531s is different to that of SOME OF the 'curvy' (wider at the top - Sharp WriteView Calculator Scientific Battery-power 4-line 335 Functions 2-key Rollover - Ref ELW531B) ones !
The Rectangular design misses several features that the curvy one has including 'A/B' - the rectangular shows 1 1/2 as 1r1r2. Crucially, you're looking for a button saying 'change', third roiw of rectangular buttons down right hand row.
As an adult, I don't want this, but for GCSE maths, kids do need it!
Quite why Sharp give pretty much the same name (EL531) to quite different calculators eludes me!

The 'black curvy' version is better than the equivalent Casio (I have both) - I'd say buy it if you're a user to that level.

This calculator is just fine if all you need is a basic calculator with trig etc. - I haven't used the Stats on any of them, so can't comment

Won't handle everyday notation like 12 x (-6) or e^(-2). Really annoying and not intuitive. My friends all bought Casios and they don't have this problem.
