I've Had Enough, I'm Buying Another Calc
Posted 21 June 2005 - 12:07 AM
i've decided to buy another calc to help in my engineering studies. I must say that i am a little bit disappointed with the results of the contest as i was expecting some programs to fill the flaws of the CP. Because that didn't happened i decided to buy another one (keeping my CP), but i don't know what to buy, so i'm asking for your help on this one. I'm very indecise between Voyage 200 and 49g+.
I'm very tempted for HP but i'm not sure, and i don't want to make another mystake ! One wrong(for now at least) calc is enough for me !
Please give me your opinions, and if you know about some comparison tests, tell me please.

If you like programming, new programs written for the 49 are 100 times faster than those for the voyager.

For what i've seen so far it's a spectacular calc, and there are lots of 3rd party software for engineering and maths. Look for EEPro! It's simply fantastic, it does everything a electronics student want (including Fourier Transform).
It's true that CP has some functions that V200 don?t (FactorOut for example) but V200 has others more important for me. And it seems that the V200's CAS engine is more powerfull (check this http://www.ti-cas.org/casio/).
There is one thing i like more in Casio, is the possibility to write an expression like in a text book (49g+ also does this). I was very interested in 49g+ but it is very complicated to work with. Only one more thing, i don't know if there is a great difference between Casio Basic and TI Basic, but for those who understand them both, with don't somebody translate some of the TI programs to Casio ? There are programs for everything we miss in CP !
Ok, it's enough for now, i'll write some more after receiving and practising with V200. Meanwhile i'll keep my CP (because i relly like it) and wait for further developments.

Oh, btw in case you haven?t noticed HP DOES have an Algebraic mode, and from my point of view HP is closer to the Casio in terms of usage than the TI.

in fact it's a pitty that the V200 has only 2.7MB of flash and don't have SD card support like HP(wich is one of it's biggest advantages). About the libraries, i've made some search before choosing the calc, and both have lot's of engineering and math software available, so the only problem is storage capacity to keep all that software in the calc. I'll just have to choose what software i really need to keep. I think that TI and Casio should think about SD card support in future models.

However, the file number limit in the ClassPad MCS has to be improved... It is big shame for the memory to support only a hundred eActivities or so... See you soon!
