Re: Finally deciding to purchase DM 42. I have a question first however.

I received my dm42 in the mail yesterday. There was no update through Amazon for tracking information (like there usually is), it just appeared. I was not charged any additional fees beyond the Amazon price. The Amazon price was a bit higher than the SwissMircos price. Amazon seems to have quite a b...

Solar Power

What would happen if you took a solar panel like the one below https://www.amazon.com/Small-Solar-Panel-3V-20mA/dp/B002MAX0FS/ref=sr_1_20?ie=UTF8&qid=1544984970&sr=8-20&keywords=3+volt+solar+panel Spliced it to a USB cable, and plugged the USB cable into the calculator? I'm not an electronics engine...

Re: Finally deciding to purchase DM 42. I have a question first however.

If this is true, then it cost me a bit extra.

Maybe this post will help someone else to save some money.

Re: Finally deciding to purchase DM 42. I have a question first however.

It was more expensive to buy it off Amazon than swissmicros.com for sure. Quite a bit more. I bought it off Amazon anyway. The reason is, I read that sellers are supposed to include all duties/fees in their price when selling on Amazon.ca. So I was hoping there wouldn't be any surprises and buying f...

Finally deciding to purchase DM 42. I have a question first however.

I notice that the calculator is currently 307 Canadian dollars (plus 23 CAD for shipping) on Amazon. This seems more expensive than directly buying it from Swissmicros. Since Swissmicros 199 CHF price converts to roughly 267 CAD. I don't see a shipping price however. What additional fees are there w...

Re: DM42 vs DM43S

The thing I dislike the most about the wp34s is the lack of a built in MISO solver. Feel free to donate such a solver to the 34S project. I'm sure a keystroke program would make the standard library. It might make XROM with enough care. A C implementation including the ancillaries, would most likel...

Re: DM42 vs DM43S

I own only the hp35s and the wp34s. The thing I dislike the most about the wp34s is the lack of a built in MISO solver. Sure you can program your own, but it is a very steep learning curve. Even if you know how to build a MISO solver it still takes much longer to input on the WP34s vs the hp35s. The...
