Compared with the cheap looking design of the original TI-30 Galaxy this cute calculator combined some stylish elements of the TI-66 with the larger keys.

The TI-30 Galaxy SLR is 100% identical to the TI-35 Galaxy Solar. You'll notice the same relationship between the TI-37 Galaxy Solar and the TI-52 Solar.  

Main disadvantage of this calculator is the small display size with only 5 digits for the mantissa in the engineers mode. This relict from the TI-30 was corrected with the TI-37 Galaxy Solar.
