1-0 out of 5 stars Viewsonic 220 and 225 series awful!
Our company purchased two years ago thirty two (32) Viewsonic 220 and 225 monitors. As of July 2004, eighteen (18) have literally gone up in smoke. These monitors are miserable pieces of junk and pose a safety hazard.

186. Handspring Treo 90

Manufacturer: Handspring
Sales Rank: 3008

Amazon.com Product Description

The Handspring Treo 90 is a small, powerful Palm OS handheld computer with a built-in keyboard, full-color screen, and expansion slot for Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMediaCard (MMC) expansion cards. With 16 MB memory and a lightweight, compact design, the Treo 90 makes getting organized easy. At only 0.7 inches thick and 4 ounces, it's small enough to fit comfortably in any pocket. It also features a fast, 33 MHz processor and an internal rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can be charged using the included travel charger.

Entering data and navigating are now faster with the Treo's built-in QWERTY keyboard. You can look up a phone number, view your calendar, and switch applications easily with one hand. Or use two thumbs for fast typing of notes and e-mail.

Display
The Treo 90 delivers text and graphics in vivid color with its 12-bit display. The transmissive color STN display offers a backlight for easier viewing in a variety of lighting conditions and supports over 4,000 colors.

Expansion
With the Treo 90's integrated Secure Digital (SD) expansion slot, you can easily add a variety of applications--from games to databases--as well as family photos without compromising size or sacrificing memory. It is compatible with both SD and MMC cards. You'll also be able to add more functionality using optional SD cards, which will be available in the future.

Operating System
The Treo 90 runs the popular Palm operating system (OS) and is compatible with thousands of applications that use this platform--from games to enterprise business software. It includes all the classic applications that you've come to expect from the Palm OS for Handspring, including Date Book Plus, To Do List, Memo Pad, Advanced Calculator, and CityTime world clock. It also features a few new applications, like Contacts (an improved Address Book), that includes Instant Lookup. This new feature enables you to find any contact, usually within three taps of the keyboard.

Handspring provides its own version of the Palm operating system--Palm OS 4.1H--which seems older than the current Palm OS 4.x now available. Handspring continues to make its own versions of the Palm OS, some of which are given back to Palm and incorporated later, and some that are only available in Handspring products.

Extra Software
In addition to the built-in applications that come with Palm OS 4.1H, the Treo 90 offers the following applications on the included CD-ROM: the Blazer Web browser, One-Touch Mail (POP3 compatible), SMS messaging, phone drivers for connecting to compatible GSM phones, and the WordSmith word processing application. WordSmith features rich formatting capabilities and offers seamless integration with Microsoft Word.

Synchronization
The Treo 90 comes with a USB HotSync cable so you can instantly back up, update, and exchange information between the Treo handheld and your desktop computer. (An optional recharging USB HotSync cradle is available separately.) A CD-ROM is included with the Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager applications for both Windows and Mac; you can also choose to synchronize with Microsoft Outlook for Windows.

Compatibility
Like other Handspring handhelds, the Treo 90 is compatible with the following Windows and Macintosh computer systems:

  • Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP with USB port (USB cable included); Windows 95 and NT 4.0 with serial port (serial cable sold separately)
  • Mac OS 8.5 through 9.x with USB port

In the Box
The Treo 90 comes with a USB HotSync cradle, travel charger (100 to 240 volts), metal stylus, and CD-ROM with Windows and Macintosh desktop software. It is backed by a one-year limited warranty. --Agen G.N. Schmitz ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice PDA from Handspring loses out to poor customer service!
I was extremely happy with my Treo 90, until two weeks into purchase and the stylus holder lost its grip. Now the stylus will fly out and can be easily lost. Other than this, the manufacture looks fair, however materials appear flimsy compared to my Palm IIIx. Plastic is thin, which allows for the extreme light weight and small size. Screen is bright and clear. Perhaps not as many colors as Palm or Sony, but I'd much rather have compact size than a clunky replica of my PC. Shame on Handspring for only partially honoring their warranty. I did not expect to have to pay for shipping to the repair center, for a product that broke two weeks from purchase. Handspring told me they would have replaced the product, including shipping, had it broke within 10 days from purchase. That's pretty lame! I like the Treo 90, but I expect better treatment from a company selling me a PDA. This will be my last Handspring product. The fact that my Treo broke is annoying. The fact that Handspring refused to fix this annoyance to my satisfaction is unforgivable!

4-0 out of 5 stars Thumb Keyboard Better than Grafiti
This is my 4th PDA I've owned from the original Palm Pilot to the Palm III to IIIxe to Treo 90 and without a doubt the Treo is by far the best.

Screen:
I love the color screen - it is much more pleasant to read than the monochrome screens and I've made good use of converting personal pictures into a photo album by downloading the fireviewer product and converting digital pictures to the treo.
When you are out in the sun it is pretty much unreadable but this is true of most color screens(this is why I gave the unit 4 stars instead of 5).

Memory:
The 16mb onboard beats just about all of the PDAs in its price class plus it gives you a MMC slot to add an additional 128mb of storage for maps, pictures, or games.

Keyboard:
Nobody else has it except Sony so if you don't like grafiti or can just type a lot faster with your thumbs this is the way to go.
The thumb keyboard is at least 3 times faster for typing notes or emails and the shortcuts allow you to avoid using the stylus most of the time.

Case:
The case is nicely designed and the see through cover is a great idea. I've heard some complaints that the bottom buttons aren't covered but you can lock the keys which should keep you from having any problems if you keep the unit in your pocket.

5-0 out of 5 stars Psychadelic, Mon!
I got 1 of these PDAs for my b-day, and it's great! I dropped it in the toilet, and it still works! My dog ate it, but it came back. It must be magic! Bye bye, silly-willy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Almost done right--still the best for price
Bought my original Treo 90 for $300 20 months ago because the worst thing about PDAs is having to take the time to pull out a stylus to use it. Keyboard entry is the way to go. Unfortunately, the Treo doesn't go quite far enough as navigating without the stylus is still difficult and in some cases impossible. Still, as I use it primarily for storage of reference sources--phone contacts and medical docs (the latter principally using iSilo, as well as several on-line synched programs)--it was a workhorse I couldn't live without. Dropped it multiple times, filled it with dirt once while crawling through mud with it in my pocket. It never flinched. I use a Secure Digital card to store an additional 15MB or so of data (which is a LOT of documents).

Then last week it died. Had to do a hard reset. All data erased. But, since I back up very frequently, no problem! Right? ...Until I found that the synch ability died also. Now I have a laptop with all my data, but no way to access it. Tried using the IR synch, which also wouldn't work.

So I went shopping. Much to my surprise keyboard entry is now only found on the highest end models. The Tungsten C is tempting, but at $400 I can buy 3 Treo 90s on-line for the same price. Do I really need Wi-fi access and a bulkier PDA? Don't think so. Thinking about buying 2 at least so I will have one as a backup down the road.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product!
Too bad this product is no longer available....I was able to get a new one this year, at a low price. I love it! It is a replacement to my Handspring Visor (dropped and cracked the screen!) I was hesitant on the keyboard (I am good at using the handscript) but love it! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible product
I tried to use this as an extender for a D-Link 624 router. It works fine for around a half hour, then loses the connection to the router, disabling the internet connection of all computers on the wireless network. Repeated hard resets and rerunning of the setup utility are required to get it to work for another half hour before it dies again. Updating the firmware had no effect, and I don't have time to mess with tech support, so I returned it to Amazon. Instead, I bought a Hawking HAI15S directional antenna for my D-Link router, which improved my signal significantly, obviating the need for this range extender. It's also much cheaper.

1-0 out of 5 stars What More Can I Do For D-Link
At this point, about 5 days after receiving the range extender, I have spent more time on the phone with tech support than I have with my family. And it still doesn't work. The config is easy, but it still doesn't work. Power up, power down, reset. And it still doesn't work. The first level techs say they don't understand (with an accent). The second level can never be found. The third level only works M-F 9-5. Well, so do I, and I can't dedicate my entire life to making myself available at D-Link's convenience so that I can make their product work.

If they hadn't sucked the life out of me, it would have been funny. But my 624 router performance is fine if you are within 20 feet and no obstructions. As the D-link tech told me, "well, are there walls in your house?" Yes, I have one of those funny houses with walls. D-Link never figured on that. What a total, unmitigated disaster this piece of useless junk is. And I want D-Link to give me back the hours of my life lost to making its junk work.

Added 6/29/04: D-link tech finally tells me that this repeater is defective (duh). But their RMA mechanism is worse than their wares. It's a 32 step procedure that ends up costing even more money even though you've already paid for their defective equipment. If you should happen to be interrupted in the middle, you can't finish. The qualifications are ridiculous. And, as I've now found out, the defect rate on repeaters is extraordinarily high. Don't expect to get one that works on the first 3 tries.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works well, however...
After three hours and getting to the second level of Tech-Support, we were able to get this extender to work. It works very well and, really, there is NO OTHER option if you need to expand your wireless network.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Good Wireless Repeater
The DWL-800AP+ isn't officially supported by D-Link for repeating other brands of wireless access points. It's best to use this with D-Link APs only. I've heard of some working, but it's pretty random.

I use the DWL-G800AP as a wireless repeater repeating the signal of my DI-624 (wireless router). This repeats the 54Mbps 802.11g speeds and I find it very easy to use.
You don't need this repeater to be plugged into the network via wired connection for it to work, but you will need to when you are configuring it to work with your WLAN. Basically you plug it in, configure it, and unplug and set it in the optimum place for best repeating of the signal.
I hide mine behind a picture frame on the mantle and it works great and isn't seen.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Wireless Repeater for the DI-624 Wireless Router Only
After purchasing a DI-624 and having that one raouter cover so much ground (air?) with a wireless signal I wanted to cover the rest of my expansive house with wireless internet coverage. This little box is just what I needed. First you plug this box into one of the router's open LAN ports, then access it via web browser and configure it (about 2 mins) to work with your wireless network.

This box will see the DI-624 and you just need to set it in wireless repeater mode. Then go put the little box at about the edge of where you get no more signal from the DI-624. I used my laptop for this. If the 624 reached out say 100 feet from it's base with wireless signal I set this little repeater at about the 75 foot mark to make sure it got a strong enough signal yet still add adequate coverage for the rest of my home.

It's simple enough and it works reliably. After setting up as a repeater you don't need to worry about it anymore. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars half-assed design
What you don't see from the pictures is that you first have to put your ipod in this filmsy cellophane condom wrap before inserting it into the plastic case. It seems like a last minute fix for a major design flaw (without the wrap your ipod will get damaged by dirt and dust).The cellophane condom makes it difficult to get your ipod in the case. The condom doesn't lay totally flat. It gets wrinkles and looks silly inside the case. Go back to the drawing board Contour Design
you have to be able to do better then this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great case, except for docking/speakers
I bought this case a month ago and love it. Once you put the iPod into it, there's no need to take it out (unless you want to dock it... see below). It's robust and gives you a good feel of protection for the iPod.
The only downside I can see with this case, is that the iPod does not fit most standard docking stations/speakers due to the plastic casing. This case is not designed for taking the iPod frequently out, so if you're planning on using it with docking stations a lot, this might not be the right solution for you. I have the Logic 3 i-Station, but have to take the iPod out of the case each time I want to dock it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not perfect, but very close
I don't think there IS a 5 star iPod case. That said- this is about as close as it gets. If you have a 40 Gig iPod, you might as well go with the Contour Showcase. But if you have a 20 Gig like mine, this fits tighter and adds less size to the iPod. IMHO, it looks even more attractive than the quite awesome Showcase. (hopefully my product photos will post here)

The GREAT: the only case I've seen that enhances the beauty of the iPod rather than diminish it. It's as if your iPodwas dipped in crystal clear acrylic; the resulting reflections and refractions are beautiful. It's quite a feat to deliver such protection AND such stylish appearance. It also adds very little weight and size to the iPods - oh you can get a lighter jacket or sleeve, but you won't get a tenth of theprotection and style of this beauty. The sleeve (see below) even protects the click wheel while allowing full access, a rare thing in any ipod case.

The IMPERFECT: It's a slide-in case and as such, the risk of scratching the iPod is high. Contour's solution to this is a plastic sleeve that goes over the iPod before you insert it in the case. It's not a perfect solution. As you might expect, the sleeve starts to hang up and slip off the iPod as it enters the case. It took a dozen attempts to get it in reasonably well, but i never did get it snug. That leaves a bit of a wrinkly look to theclick wheel.
And as others have noted, supplying a single sleeve with a web link to order more is kinda cheesy. Give me 3 in the box and raise the price $3 instead. I suspect they don't want you to EVER take the iPod out of the iSee and that is an option, but - I'd prefer some backup sleeves without having to wait on snail mail.
The belt clip worries me a bit - it seems like it couldaccidentally release from the case when bumped and let your ipod fall? But it hasn't happened.

The bottom line? At $20 this product is cheaper than most, better looking than most and more functional than most.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent case
This case is wonderful.I put my iPod in when I got it and haven't had need to take it out.Fits snuggly and I love that it's clear, and everything is accesible.Very highly recommended.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not worth it
Before I used to think that i would be worth the prive that it was set at, I was wrong. I mean this does serve its purpose and does everything it says, but it is just too overprivced. I could see this at $15, maybe $20, but $40 is just outragous. If you are planning on buying an ipod, buy a 20 or 40 gig, if you really want this. Sepreately, it is just a waste of money.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice work if you can get it
Let's put it this way: I think the dock is great. Aesthetically is much more pleasing to see my iPod propped up securely in this sturdy little accessory. Functionally, the line out jack is great for hooking up to a stereo. And for the sake caution, I prefer having a spot to place this pricey little unit in, rather than just leaving it lying down, just waiting for the first inadvertant soda can to be set on it, or crushed under a stack of books, and so on.

The price doesn't really bother me; it could be lower, but it's not prohibitive, considering how much you just paid for your iPod. And that's why overall, I'd give the dock 4 stars...

... But not 5. Because having said all of that, it's really sort of chintzy of Apple to make one have to pay extra for a basic component and, when all is said and done, one you don't necessarily actually need. So, in the end, it's nice, if you can get it -- but if not, you're not missing much.

2-0 out of 5 stars too expensive, but...
For 40 bucks you get the dock, which is nice. For 75 you get the dock, a Monster Cable audio connection cable with RCA connectors; the Apple USB-iPod cable and the Apple power adapter. Apple calls this its stereo connection kit. In May 2004 it's $5 cheaper on Amazon than at apple.com. Seventy-five bucks is too much for this, too, but bought separately, I know these items would cost quite a bit more than $75.

You do need the dock to use the line-level output to your stereo. While it's true the variable output headphone connection works fine, the line-level output provides higher fidelity and eliminates the risk of overloading the inputs on your pre-amp or receiver.

If you don't have an iPod yet and you love music, especially if you travel on airplanes, you need one. Just know that podding, like most other things, is a bit of a money pit.

4-0 out of 5 stars Probably not worth it, but handy
The iPod dock may not be worth the price - but it *is* handy if you are into convenience. My iPod came with a bundled dock and I keep in on my desk for charging/syncing.

The dock is well designed - seems solidly built and is nice and small. It's also nice how it doesn't have any cables hanging out of it like most docks seem to - you just plug in the regular iPod cable to the back and that's it.

I've seen people who have two iPods leave one dock in the living room by the stereo equipment. The audio out jack on the back of the dock allows you to hook it up to your stereo and you can use the dock cable to plug in to the AC charger. This lets you quickly snap the iPod into its dock to charge and listen to music - however, if you only have one iPod, you'll want to buy an additional cable along with the extra dock so you don't always have to unplug it to sync with your computer.

If you're not feeling cheap, I guess it's handy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Other functionality
The iPod dock does more than just make the iPod "stand up." It also provides a line-out which is a much better way of connecting it to a steroeo sytem than going through the headphone jack. Pricey? Yes, but worth it for some. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great for the price, has it's quirks though
This printer is in general very smooth and prints high quality printouts. The cable is not included (and that is not listed on the box), so whoever got one included probably got lucky in that it was returned and someone left the cable in there.

Pushing the ink cartridges in takes some doing to make sure they are hooked in correctly. But if you'd had HP printers before it's probably easy because they are all done that way. I moved up from an Epson, so it took a little practice.

Setup for a single computer was relatively easy, although the included CD does not autostart. Instead, if you're using Windows XP the driver is already on your Windows system, and when you plug in the printer, turn it on, the Windows system detects it and installs the driver.

Setup for an older Windows 98 computer was more difficult. For starters, the older computer does not have the proper driver. But when you select "Have Disk", it does not browse correctly to the CD. Instead you must open the CD and run installation. If the printer is not connected and turned on, the installer crashes. I found this out the hard way because I was trying to install the driver on my Win98 but using it remotely from the network and could not do so because the installer would crash. Finally, I had to unhook the printer from my XP computer, hook it up to my Win98, install the driver from the CD, and then unhook it and put it back onto the network.

Printer also has strange quirks. For example, sometimes the arrow button on the left would blink for no good reason. Just press the button and printer will start. Other times the ink drop light will blink (and my ink is full since I just bought it). Just open the lid and push back down, and it'll print.

The output is great though, so if you can live with the quirks, and with the low price, it's still a worthwhile purchase.

4-0 out of 5 stars printer i can live with
so far so good. yeah, printer doesn't come with usb cable, but you can find those at any computer store. i mainly use it to print some digital photos that i tooked, and it works pretty well, for that price. don't get me wrong, i know there's printers that prints at quality much better than this, but you got to look at the price as well. one thing that really bugged me though is the price of the inks. by all means, they are not cheap! at 35 dollars per color and 25 phto color cartidges that prints around 30 photo papers. but i guess hp has to make their money some how.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great basic printer for the money
I bought the HP 5150 as a replacement for a 7+-year old, broken HP ink jet, and I'm very happy with it. I use it to print a lot of envelopes and haven't had any problems with the alignment getting messed up like I did with my old printer. The guides adjust smoothly (unlike my old printer) and it prints quickly enough for my own personal use - faster than my old printer since the 5150 uses a USB cable (I saved $15 on that and bought it at Target). It was really simple to set up, too, and I only have a basic knowledge of computers.

I don't plan on using it to print photos, but I understand the cartridges switch out and you can print quality color photos. The cartridges were a bit tricky to snap in.

I am comfortable with HP quality, so I didn't consider any other brands. The price seemed reasonable.

Overall, I'm very happy with this printer.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ours just died one day
We had our 5150 for three months and it conked out one day in the middle of a job. We called HP and were told, "Maybe it's the power cord. We'll send you a new one." That was wishful thinking, and we ended up having to send the printer back to HP in exchange for a brand-new one. It was a hassle, though, dealing with HP's computer system (ironic).

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Compact Printer
I recently bought my HP DeskJet 5150 as a replacement for an elderly HP inkjet printer that gave up the ghost. In general I have been very pleased with the 5150. It had flawless installation (I was ready to print ten minutes after I opened the box) and setup, and has excellent print characteristics in both B&W and color. It is very capable, starts up fast, has a quick throughput rate, and superior graphics resolution.

I have framed a couple of color prints printed on the 5150 (on HP photo paper), as they are equal to conventional photographic printing to the naked eye. My only caveat on the photo printing is that I can't vouch for the life of the prints, so far so good, but I know that some inkjet prints fade badly over time.

I am pretty hard on the 5150. Because I am in in the throes of researching and writing my Master's thesis right now, I am printing copious amounts, and running at least 500 pages a week through the 5150, and thus far have had no problems with it.

The one minor and completely unanticipated, annoyance I have with the 5150 is the shelf that holds the printed sheets is too short. HP provides a rickety pull out/fold over contraption to help hold printed work, but in my experience it is inconvenient at best (it almost doubles the frontal area of the printer), and is a real space hog on my desk.

Aside from that one small critique (which is the reason I gave it four instead of five stars) I think the HP 5150 is an excellent little printer at a bargain basement price. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars It's Little, It's Blue and it Zips too!
I have had my USB Zip 250 for year and it is great, its easy to use and easy to carry. The USB powered drive makes it great for any PC and Laptop and can be easily removed from any PC you need to grab data. The problem with 100MB is ok but another issue might come laptop users who don't plug their laptops in. Not to mention that this drive is useless on any PC older then 4 years that lack USB. Overall a darn good product from the people who made high capacity drives so simple.

4-0 out of 5 stars Iomega Does it Again!
The Iomega Zip 250 USB-Powered Starter Kit is excellent and a great value. The new powered zip drive is a breeze to install. Just load the software, attache the cable, reboot, and wha-la!! The drive installed immediately on my Win98SE Gateway laptop, with Win98 recognizing the drive and loading its drivers immediately. It is intuitive to use with the Iomegaware 2.8 software (the primary zip application) and creates another drive in your computer. You can drag and drop to your heart's content! I found no difficulty with compatibility at all, as did one reviewer - but perhaps going from PC to MAC or vice versa (as he/she apparently did) does cause problems. The only minor drawback I see is that it is a little noisey. I don't even notice that its particularly slow using older zip 100 disks, but I'm comparing it to a zip 100 parallel - now that's slow! Great product!!

3-0 out of 5 stars Almost Great
This is a neat little drive. The only reason I got this was because the new Macs don't come with built in zip drives anymore, and I have alot of data on zips. I didn't get the 750MB drive because the specs say it won't write to 100MB zip disks, which this one will.

At first I was concerned with the funny noises I heard coming from this little drive (remember, my previous experience was a built in 100MB version). It took me a while to realize these were the same sounds that came from the old drive, only much much louder. I don't know if click of death is still an issue with Zip drives, but those noises sure had me worried at first.

The portability is great, not only can you take the disks anywhere, but the drive itself is small enough to be transported easily. Simply unplug the thing, and you're good to go, it'll work on any computer with a built in USB port.

Compatibility is another story. I've had no problem reading and writing to Mac100 zip disks. On PC100s and PC250s, disk access is much slower. That's why this is only getting three stars, instead of four or five.

5-0 out of 5 stars What you're looking for
If you need an exterior Zip drive, you've found it. This is perfect for your every zip need. It is very small- not much wider then an actual zip disk. In addition, it comes with a rubber stand that can make it take up even less desk space by making it vertical. It is extremely light and therefore portable and easily plugs into your computer with a fast USB cable. There is no necessary installation either. Also, it is good to note that this is a good MB zip drive to get for two reasons- it can still take 100MB ones (the size smaller) and there is no real need for most to get a 700 MB drive (the size larger) because if you're dealing with that much information most people would use a CD instead and it is very hard to find a 700 MB disk. Also, take into account that this is a very good price especially considering it includes 3 disks- which can run $$$ each sometimes.

1-0 out of 5 stars ZIP 250MB Starter - 3 U250 Disks not included
This starter kit doesn't contain the U250 disks (10 year guarantee), but the regular 250 MB zip disks (5 year guarantee). I am sending 2 kits back today. Iomega quit making the U250 Zip disks. Someone at Amazon knows about the problem, but the website has not been updated. Don't waste your time ! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow! The real deal
Got my 30 GB iPod and it's exactly what I hoped it would be, my dream replacement for my RioVolt 250. I'm using Win 2K and Music Match Plus and the sync worked like a charm. Even with a Fireward card, transferring 20 GB of MP3's takes a while so let it go overnight. Also, take Apple's advice and charge the unit for an hour before you start working with it. You'll need to do the 2.01 updater but the interface will basically do it for you. You may need to reboot a time or two till iPod Manager sees the iPod but after that, all is swell. Take some time and build your playlists first. MusicMatch tech support confirmed that no matter how many times a tune shows up in a playlist, it's onlybeing written once to the iPod HD so be sure to create playlists based on artist, or album or genre or mix etc. That way, you'll have planty of different ways to access your tunes. I didn't want to go thru 5000 tunes one by one, till I found what I was looking for. Get the car charger and you're ready to go. ... I'll [get] the Belkin AA Battery external charger for trips longer than 10 hours. It's only been two days but so far so good. Quality is great, it's light and easy to carry at the gym. I love it. iTunes may be cooler and Apple may do something for us Windows users soon but Music Match Plus (comes with the iPod ) will do till then. BTW, make use of the "tagging" features to get your tunes properly named and identified, especially if they came from you know where. It'll make bulding playlists easier. Once you import the MP3's into "My library", highlight the MP3 or MP3's, right mouse click and choose "edit track tags". Then in the dialogue box that opens, pick "lookup tag". It'll go find all the albums that track appeared on along with the album art. Pick the one you want and it'll name it correctly. Enjoy!

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but not perfect
I received a new iPod 30GB for Father's day (Thanks Sweetie!). I've used about a dozen or so prior mp3 devices, and I have noted some issues that haven't been represented in any other review, which I wanted to point out to folks considering buying an iPod.

First off, it's a great device overall. 30 GB is a lot of space and fits my 500+ CD music collection fine. I think the battery life of 8-10 hours is great (my previous device, the Nomad Jukebox, had 40GB, but got 2 hours battery life if I was lucky!) and I like it's looks and size a lot. There are some mildly annoying UI issues but nothing I can't live with. The case, and most importantly the screen, scratch really easily, so you have to be careful how you handle it (it's small enough to put in your pocket--just don't keep anything else in that pocket!).

I'm a Windows user, and I'll add my report that the MusicMatch software that ships with the iPod is disgraceful. I loaded it on three different computers, (moving the firewire card around each time) and it never would transfer music to the device. Finally I downloaded an *older* version of MMJB and got music to transfer. Its own user interface is awful and I really hate that it makes you IMPORT all of your music into ITS library. It's clearly designed for the novice user, with no expert-mode features that accommodate folks like me.

But the biggest criticism I have of the iPod is something that Apple just plain got wrong. There is no support for building [persistent] playlists on the device. This really bothers me. It's apparent that iPod's designers had a built-in assumption that people wouldn't mind being tethered to their computers for playlist management and other things, but not everyone works this way. I tend to not hook my device up to a computer unless I have new music to download, which can be weeks. I really want the device to be usable indefinitely without a computer.

But there's one important thing you can't do very well on the iPod without a computer: Create playlists. Yes, you can add songs and albums to the "on the go" playlist, but there are some serious flaws with that feature's implementation:
a) there is only one on-the-go playlist
b) this playlist is temporary. It is blown away the instant you dock your device (why, WHY? This is such a brain-dead design choice it boggles the mind.)
c) when adding entire albums to this playlist, the album order is not respected. They seem to go in either alpha or random order, I haven't figured it out yet.

This makes it tougher to use the device the way I want. I'd like to be able to string together either a list of individual songs or, more often, entire albums and listen to them. But the albums go into the playlist with the song order wrecked, which is annoying. And having to abandon a list I've already created to be able to create a new one is truly annoying. And it's heartbreaking that, after I've put together a really good mix on the device, it will be summarily discarded the instant I dock. I truly can't understand the rationale behind this one.

So on the whole, it's a good device, the best out there for its combination of size, capacity, and battery life. There are some annoying problems that might detract from your enjoyment a bit if you, like me, find album order important and like to create custom playlists anywhere you are. But even with those flaws I'm glad to own mine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great interface, good sound
Have had my 30 GB iPod since November 2003, and am still loving it. Very few complaints - the sound quality is excellent, the user interface is easy to use, and the syncing with iTunes works flawlessly.

Probably the best feature of the iPod is the easy to use/navigate user interface - it's a snap to find the song you want quickly or build a playlist on the fly. It's also nice how the statistics from your iPod use such as number of times each song is played, date last played, and ratings (0 to 5 stars) carry over to iTunes and vice versa. The smart playlists from iTunes also work, so, for example, I have a playlist on my iPod of all songs rated between 3 and 5 stars which haven't been played in the last month. Pretty nifty.

Highly recommended - a little pricey, but you won't regret it - I get way more use out of my iPod than I did from my first MP3 player - a flash memory based one with a mediocre interface and small storage capacity.

PS: The iTunes Music Store is cool!

5-0 out of 5 stars The BEST Thing Since Sliced Bread!!!!!!!
This IS the best thing since sliced bread! No wonder it was rated as last year's Best Invention. If you are like me and have a huge CD collection (literally 1,000's!) and your passengers in the car are sick and tired of carrying all your CD's on road trips, then wait no longer, the iPod is your lifetime solution. Not only is this thing made very durably (it's lasted me over a year now with no problems or repairs - even though it's taken a few drops and other minor beatings). The iPod is also great because it is light in weight, user friendly (so even you technology-illerate people will have an easy time getting started), aesthetically nice looking, and very easy to organize and store your music. I listen to a large variety of music (ex: bossa nova, jazz, classic rock, gospel, blues, classical, r&b, house/dance music, etc....just to name a few) so it was so nice to be able to create as many playlists as I wanted for each genre of music I listen to! Whenever you play your music, there will be a display showing how many minutes have passed in the song and how many remain. Lastly, for those of you who insist on staying in the stone age with your PC's (MAC's truly ARE the new wave of the future!), rest assured, the iPod is compatible with PC's. I can't say enough great things about this thing. Do yourself a favor and buy one for a friend or family member. They will love you eternally for it!

4-0 out of 5 stars iPod, audio books, and driving
I have used mp3 files and mp3 players years before Apple joined the game. (Despite their excellent marketing, they did not invent the genre - they certainly did, however, up the ante.) My primary use is listening to audio books during my 40 minute commute each way to work. I have used the fabulous audible.com service for years now ... and on 3 different players. The iPod is excellent for music, but surprisingly mediocre for audio books while driving. The reason is the very poor ergonomic design of employing "buttons" that cannot be identified by touch alone (while one's eyes are on the road). It is very easy while driving to hit the wrong button (since there is no way of feeling which is the pause or reverse button) and "rewind" the book to the beginning (or even to another book). Hitting the wrong button is a minor annoyance for a 3-minute song. But trying to relocate your place in a 12-hour audio book while dodging tanker trucks is another story. I strongly urge Apple to add back the tactile buttons that were available on the 1st generation models. Fellow commuters who love audio books should consider this when purchasing a player. (BTW, on a separate note, the box and packaging the iPod comes in is an example of design perfection. Congratulations to whoever conceived this!) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional Scanner at Decent Price
I have been a Microtek fan for quite a few years, having started out with a Scanmaker III, then a Scanmaker 5, and finally progressing to the 1800f. The 1800f has firewire and USB connections, which makes switching between my PC and Mac effortless. Much easier to use then the old SCSI scanners I had and much improved optics. I was pondering getting a slide scanner but this one works great for archiving the thousands of slides that I have from my photography days. It has a slide holder so that you can have it scan quite a few slides at the same time, thus a nice time saving feature like my Scanmaker 5. The difference is this one has much crisper images and is light years ahead in speed. Overall I am very impressed with the scanner and its abilities. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Works great with my iPod!
I bought this to transfer music to my new 10gig iPod. Installation was very easy on my laptop (running Windows 2000 Pro, SP 3.) Windows installed the drivers as soon as I plugged the card into the laptop and the iPod synced up just as easily. I didn't need the video editing software that came with this card (Ulead's Video Studio SE) so I can't comment on its usefulness.

I haven't used Firewire before since I work with PCs mostly so I was amazed at how fast the transfer is with Firewire. I transferred 9gigs of music (2750 files) to the iPod in 40 minutes. I have an old mp3 player that works with USB 1.1 and it takes 40 minutes to transfer 30 songs!

You should be careful to always use Windows' "Unplug or Eject Hardware" utility to disable the iPod and/or Startech card before diconnecting them from the laptop; I forgot once and had to reboot the laptop but I didn't have problems with the iPod (thank goodness!) Good product for a reasonable price. Not as cheap as the PCI cards at Compusa, but the best price I could find for a PCMCIA version. And it works great!

5-0 out of 5 stars As easy as they say
I bought this Notebook card, paid for overnight shipping, and it was here the next day! I got it for use with my IPOD and I was NOT disappointed. I'm not that bright when it comes to this kind of stuff and the idea of this confused me. The other reviews didn't say if it came with everything, but I took a chance. It was complete with everything you need. I plugged it in and my laptop instantly recognized it. It was so fast that I thought my computer was still thinking about it. I plugged in my IPOD, followed the on-screen directions and 10 minutes later, I had a song on my IPOD. DEFINITELY WORTH THE PRICE

5-0 out of 5 stars PCMCIA cards WILL NOT POWER IPODS!
Some people are rating this card down incorrecty. To set the matter straight:

The PCMCIA bus specification does not provide enough power to allow the PCMCIA cards to power external devices. Therefore, the PCMCIA Firewire cards do not provide enough power to the Firewire bus.

NO PCMCIA firewire cards can charge an ipod by itself (using the laptop's battery). PCI firewire cards (the kind for you desktop) CAN, but PCMCIA cards (the ones for you laptop) CANNOT. It is not a "feature" that this card lacks.

HOWEVER: Some PCMCIA cards come with an input for an external power adaptor, including this Startech card (as another reviewer mentioned). So basically, you plug an external adapter into the port (which you can see in the picture) and the external adapter will then power the firewire card, letting it charge your ipod. As far as I can tell, this feature isn't available on a lot of cheaper models. But you WILL have to have an external power adapter to use this feature.

So again, NO PCMCIA cards can self power an ipod while charging. Don't rate a product down for something that's not possible.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great with XP and Canon DV Camcorder
Bought this to capture DV from Canon ZR20 to Toshiba Laptop with XP Home. Works great. Able to capture video to PC without loss of quality. Editing is easier with MovieMaker than with the included Ulead, but Ulead seems more versatile. I would definitely recommend this card for anyone trying to do the same thing.

4-0 out of 5 stars Powered Firewire is possible
One of the reviews above states that this adapter won't provide power to devices such as the Apple iPod. You actually can power these devices by plugging an external power adapter into the card. This feature appears to be undocumented, but the plug is clearly visible to the left of the 1394 ports.

I phoned the Startech customer support, and they said that you can use any generic DC adapter, with the following settings: 12 volt DC, 3 amp, and a plug with positive (+) in the centre.

Hope it helps. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars cute little hub
I have some other hubs that I'd bought back in the day in computer time (3 or so years ago) so I was expecting this one to be the same size. This hub is so small that if nothing is connected to it, I can close my hand around it and hide the whole thing. So far it's worked flawlessly for me with both USB 1.0 and 2.0 devices - I'd reccomend it in a heartbeat.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy, quick set-up, flawless operation
So you have to plug it into the wall. So what? If you need more USB ports on your home machine, get this hub. It's slightly larger than a deck of playing cards. All you do is plug it in. Everything you need is in the box. No additional cords, software or drivers required. Perfect.

1-0 out of 5 stars Does not work wihout External Power
I have purchased the Linksys USB2HUB4 a while back, but just discovered that it does not work powered by the host only even for devices requiring <500 ma. It will not work unless the external power source is used. I thought it was faulty and had it exhchanged but, the replacement behaves the same way. I am a bit disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Is a USB 2.0 Hub - Amazon link is wrong
This is a USB 2.0 hub per the Linksys.com site. Amazon has the wrong documentation linked to the product page. My four star rating is not relevant because I don't own this product yet, just researching at this point, but prospective buyers should know about this bug on Amazon's site. I'm very happy with other Linksys products I have and I'm sure this one is just fine.

I need more ports, had little money from the business and lo and behold there it was! I like it, but it would be nice if the plastic strip didn't keep coming unstuck! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars TDK's CD-R quality is great and will last longer.
I have learned a hard lesson in buying blank CD-R over the years. I first bought the blank aluminum surface cheap no-name CD-R at the computer fair. They were OK; they don't last as long as TDK, but burn well. Only 2-5 bad CD in a bundle of a 100 failed. I decided to upgrade the look of the blank CDR on my next purchase and got Sony. TDK and Yamaha were noticeably expensive. Sony's CDR(smooth pearl surface) are the absolute worst (read my review on for Sony CD-R) the CD will burn, but over time become unreadable and the surface started to fake.

My friend burned me a TDK's CD about 2-3 years ago and the CDR still look like new. So, I decide to give it a try. I read somewhere that TDR surface is a little more scratch proof then the other brands. I have no problem burning any of TDK. I have a Yamaha burner burning between 4-20speed and the TDK 48x has no problem. I have 3 generation of TDK, they all look a like very nice with smooth silver surface and a nice clean design. The surface at time is harder to write on then other cheaper CDR with a dryer marker, but I think it is because of high quality TDK surface. If you want to save a couple of cents per CDR and get cheaper CDR then it won't last as long as a TDK's CDR. Noticeable: Memorex is pretty good, and cheaper. Some HP is very nice with gold surface. Yamaha is TDK quality but pricier, Sony (pearl surface) is crap. Fiji is good and also cheaper. Looking at the surface you can tell which brand model is good. The gold surfaces are the best and pricier then the aluminum/silver surface. You will always get a better deal when you buy a 100-spindle over a 20pack. I first bought TDK 20 pack to see how good they were before I moved to up to a 100-spindle. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best!!!
I have never written a review, but felt I had to write about this great printer. After reading all the rave reviews on this printer, I went to a local computer store to see the printer in person. I was thinking of the i960, but found the i860 was just as good and less expensive. I was looking to add a better photo printer than my current HP990CSE.

I got home, followed the simple instructions to get it installed, and within 10 minutes was printing. WOW, was it printing. The prints that came off this printer are the most beautiful prints I have ever seen, and for the money, well it is a steal even at the Amazon price. I printed four 4x6 prints using the sample Cannon Glossy Photo paper, and it gave unbelieveable results out of a Nikon 2500 2.1 megapixel camera. That's right, a inexpensive digital camera, with photo lab results out of this printer. I used the Canon software to print with no editing, just downloaded from the camera and print from the file.

If you are into digital photos then I would highly recommend. I am sure you could spend more and get more features, such as larger paper size, but for me, the normal paper size with 4x6 tray included is perfect. The paper tray is great and can remain on the printer all the time, just switch to print to the different size paper. The ink system is great also, and look forward to saving money in ink over the HP printers.

In summary, I would, without any doubt, highly recommend this printer to anyone looking for a great, simple photo printer that produces superior results.

5-0 out of 5 stars Get this printer!
Get this printer if you're in the market for a printer that will handle text documents efficiently as well as print top quality photographs,(...).

I printed out a borderless photo on the supplied sample of 4 x 6 paper and the quality is unbelievable. Just simply stunning.

And even web pages and text documents on plain paper at the "standard" setting look good enough to eat.

I bought this to replace a two year old Epson C80 whose black ink nozzle had become irreparably clogged. The eventual clogging of these Epson inkjets is a widely reported problem. Whether using generic inks (I used Carrot Ink cartridges) contributes to this or not, I don't know, but it's moot anyway, since Epson ink cartridges were so outrageously expensive, I couldn't have used the printer without using cheaper generic inks.

The Canon is one of the most satisfying hardware purchases I've made.

Other advantages:

It handles text quickly and beautifully.

It has a 5 cartridge ink system with separate blacks for text and photo and the Canon cartridges are affordable.

It's unbelievably quiet, especially in--yes--"quiet mode" (which does reduce printing speed a little (not noticeably to me).

The photo paper tray for 4 x 6 sheets works great.

The print head can be replaced.

Additional advantages if you're a Mac user:

It will work wirelessly with an Airport Extreme Base Station and it works beautifully with OS 10.3 (Panther).

Disadvantages:

Yes, there is no USB cable. I guess I can understand this, since most inkjet printers can't be repaired, and have to be disposed of, so I guess Canon figures you'll have a USB cable sitting around.

Yes, you have to install the print head, and I was a little fearful snapping it in but I had no problems.

And yes, you have to align the print head, but you can do an automatic alignment using the printer utility software.

For Mac users, at least, don't waste time installing the printer driver from the CD, as it is out of date. Download the latest driver from the Canon website. And be sure to repair permissions after installing the driver, as many of them were out of whack after the driver installation.

All in all, this is one of the most satisfying hardware purchases I've made.

5-0 out of 5 stars Professional looking pics!!!!!
I am absolutely amazed and impressed with the i860. Canon includes all the ink and a few sheets of their photo paper pro so that you can print out photos from the get go. I gave it a whirl and not only was it simple, the photos came out looking like processed film photos! I was so excited I showed them to my husband and he agreed, even on the lowest setting for standard photo prints, the prints looked awesome!

The camera I am currently using is the Fuji Finepix S3000. Excellent camera, that takes excellent photos. The end result used in conjuction with this printer is professional looking photos.

Beyond photo printing, regular printing is awesome too. I used cheap paper from Walmart to print out everyday stuff and it looks great. I haven't had it long enough to know how quickly the ink will go, but the ink cartridges for this are very cheap in comparison to others, plus with individual tanks, you only replace the color that is empty. Plus, there are also many different remanufactured cartridges out there for this printer, so you can get ink very cheaply.

I would recommend this printer to ANYONE I know. I really am enjoying it and am always looking for things to print!!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars A very nice printer but....
A very nice printer but it's already obsolete. Canon is replacing this model (i860) with the soon to be released PIXMA iP4000 Photo Printer. The iP4000 will be even faster and feature automatic duplex printing. The iP4000 will have the same street price $149 USD. Hopefully, the quality of the iP4000 will exceed that of the i860 but its anyone's guess at this point. If you're considering the i860 I'd suggest that you wait a month until the iP4000 is released especially now since the $30 rebate on the i860 has expired (July 17). The other option is buying the i960 instead. Decisions, decisions...

5-0 out of 5 stars Impressive Printer
I purchased this printer based on the top Consumers Reports rating it received plus the excellent reviews I've read of Amazon's customers reviews. Believe me, all the good comments about this printer are right on. It has worked perfectly and prints outstanding documents. I have not yet ventured into printing photo prints, but with the recent purchase of a digital camera, I am confident it will produce the excellent results I expect. Without hestitation, I endorse all the 5 star ratings this printer has received. Purchase with confidence. ... Read more
