|SNGU Multifunctional CS29 Bamboo Calculator.|
Every button has its symbol laser-etched into it, giving each key its own unique feel. The key pad feels more like a computer keyboard than any other calculator I've reviewed so far. It's an absolutely joy to perform calculations with this device because everything feels great and responsive.
The SG-CS29 features all the standard calculator functions, but includes a backspace key that allows the user to retype numbers and even make changes to results. It's a great feature that allows for some truly unique math.
While designed to be a desk calculator, this device has a nice weight to it and, combined with the smooth edges, makes it feel great in your hands.
The only fault I can find in this device is the battery situation. The solar cell is real and works great, but the battery inside is not going to last forever. In order to get to it, you'll need to remove several screws as well as the rubber feet on the bottom of the calculator. This isn't a huge problem, as I found reassembling everything to be fairly easy. The internal components are screwed together to keep things from just falling out when you get inside.
Unlike previous reviews, I can actually supply a reliable link for readers to purchase this device. Click here to purchase it on Amazon.com (I am not sponsored in any way by the manufacturers of this device or Amazon). Currently it's selling for a little under $25.
