3 weeks agoDurability4 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?NoButtons don't always pressThe device does everything it's supposed to do. You need an E6B for the FAA exam, so this is the one to get.
My only gripe is that frequently the button presses don't register. This is particularly annoying when doing regular arithmetic on the device, since the operator you've chosen isn't displayed on screen, so it's impossible to know when, say, dividing distance over time, if you've actually pressed the division key.January 4, 2019Purchased
3 weeks agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?Yesworks greatIt took a couple of hours to master the handheld electronic E6B, but now it works as expected, and it made the original cardboard one easier to use, too. It makes doing the tests a lot easier, too.January 3, 2019Purchased
4 weeks agoDurability3 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance2 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value1 / 5E6B up to youIt does what it is supposed to do. It takes a bit to figure the abbreviations that do not seem to match the normal nomenclature, but no big deal. Some buttons require pressing harder. So it is important to keep your eyes on it because you may think you pressed a number that actually it is not there. The calculator function is a bit behind the times, it does not allow to see the entire equation. Also if you make a mistake in calculator mode, you have to re-enter everything instead of being able to delete or back space. I only use mine for the one or two questions in knowledge tests. I will keep mine as a back up.December 21, 2018Purchased
1 month agoPerformance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesE6B ComputerI just got it. So far very pleased. The display has great contrast & is easy to read ! I really like the sliding cover to protect the screen. At this point, I feel that I made the right choice between this or the CX3 !! Can not rate durability or reliability yet , because I just bought it a couple of weeks ago. Thanks for a great product at a great sale price ..... Doug H.December 18, 2018Purchased

1 month agoDurability3 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?Yesfirst impressionWhen I noticed that no HectoPascal as pressure is indicated, I intended to sent back the unit as in Europe this is the system.
But realising that 1 millibar is equal to 1 hectopascal it became clear that only the name is different but the function should be the same. It will require quite some exercise to work effectively with the computer, but attractive are the clear readable answers. So I assume it will become a good friend.December 8, 2018Purchased
