3-0 out of 5 stars Great for what it's designed for.
This device was designed to be cheaper than a ppc 2002 device therefore it lacks some of the features of the standard ppc 2002 devices. No IR port, no speaker, no StrongARM processor, skimpy app support right now(applications must be ported to the casio overlay on win ce 3.0, and presumably for the MIPs processor). Plusses include the unit is great for wireless networking, including that the built in webbrowser is superior to the pocket IE and that all the memory is flash. So if you happen to run the battery dry as can happen with ppc devices, no data will be lost, this also means when you hit the power button, the unit really is off. The unit has a compact flash type II slot, which supports the IBM Microdrive and other CF Type II devices along with standard CF Type I cards and such. Casio makes a battery backpack and pc card backpack that allows you to use this device with pc cards used with laptops. If you're looking for a handheld that offers mp3 and video playback, uses compact flash storage and has PIM functionality and to play a few hands of solitaire on, check out this unit, at a rockbottom price. The only unit that can compete with this one on price is the older HP Jornada 525, which is much larger, features a slower processor, serial synch, no cover, ppc 2000, and no place to store the stylus on the device. If you only want PIM and games, check out something running Palm OS.

I've seen several reviews complaining about being unable to use activesync with the be-300, this is not true, installing a third party patch allows one to use activesync with your b3-300. I've seen several people complain that it doesn't play mp3's, again not true, included in the bundled software is an mp3 player. I've seen a few reviews saying that it doesn't run windows ce, not true, it doesn't run pocket pc, which is microsoft's "special" version of windows ce run on the higher end models. I saw a review complaining about the lack of a video encoder for the CFM format, not true, included in the bundled software is an encoder for their CFM format. One can also purchase a third party app called PocketTV for the be-300 to play mpeg video. Yes, this device may require you to actually put forth a little effort to get it doing exactly what you want, what doesn't? Visit ... to connect with be-300 users around the world and see what it can do.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Surprisingly Good Unit at a Great Price
I previously owned 2 Casio Pocket planners, and had to get something new after I damaged my last unit. When I surveyed what was out there, I was disappointed to find that the typical Electronic/Appliance and Office Supply stores around town carried mostly Palm devices, with only a miniscule assortment of Treo and Sony models, in addition to a few wildly expensive "Pocket PC" type devices.
Then I found the info on the Casio BE-300.
I was somewhat concerned when I read the mixed nature of the buyer reviews, but decided that I could work with the kind of negatives that were mentioned.
Once I received it (3 wks ago) and started using it, I was very happy I bought it.
--Beautiful color display, great resolution;
--16MB RAM is one of the larger standard memory capacities around
--Using a modified Windows-CE OS (instead of the Palm OS) frees up display space for easier use and beter viewability.
I had only one minor problem synchronizing with Outlook. I followed the bundled PC Connect software instructions, and ran into only one issue - the program wouldn't accept the Mail synchronization settings. I later realized the reason was probably that my business mailbox exceeded 200 MB at the time, and would have crashed the Sync process anyway.
It took me a half hour to get through that problem, and when I went to sync folders, it took just a short while to sync my tasks, Calendar, Contacts, and folders. I guess I'll have to delay setting up e-mail until I can trim my mailbox.
I also synchronized a folder of very complex, large Excel files. I downloaded the PTab program from Casio's website, and can now edit and manipulate large, formula rich business spreadsheets. I was amazed to find that I can work directly with fully functional formula entries on a pocket unit this small.
Speaking "small", the BE-300 is actually a bit smaller than my previous 64k(!) planner.
The only two disadvantages that I can see are the fact that I had to buy it over the net, instead of trying one out "in the flesh"; and I wish the expansion slot had room for a cover that would fit with a flash card in place. (Just concerned that pocket lint could get into the connector area and cause problems.)
I'm looking forward to the future when I can learn and start to use some of the Internet type functions of this unit.
I am tremendously pleased with the unit, and think that anyone who's interested in excellent value for a bargain price should buy from AMAZON and try this unit out.

1-0 out of 5 stars Slow Recall
I have owned this unit. It's processor was very slow when searching a contact. It took up to 20 seconds. I have always had Casio PDA's, but had to trade this one in for a Toshiba.

5-0 out of 5 stars BE-300 is Very Good-BUT
This is an excellent PDA.
BUT it stopped working in 3 months but i would still highly recommmend it because i caused the problem and it is very sturdy and the screen quality is great and the mp3 player is nice too!
Plus CompactFlash is a must have!
Buy It!

3-0 out of 5 stars BE-300, It was a GOOD one, until.......
It was a GOOD one until I tried to buy a new battery for it. It took me a week to get ahold of someone at Casio to order a battery. When I finally did, it was on backorder. They refered me to another supplier that gets them from Casio. When I asked "how much?" they said $63 plus freight ($71 total). I decided that was too much. I only paid $140 for my BE-300 new. I have checked online for other sources and no luck. So, off to the "electronics bone pile" it will go.... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best PDA purchase - EVER!
I've recently upgraded to the PVS400 Plus from earlier inexpensive PDA's and I'm thrilled with it! It's not as heavy as Palms, looks just as sleek and is the best PDA ever...

It includes all the basic functions... multiple contact lists (personal, business, etc.), great calendar functions (one time events up through yearly birthdays - all with optional alarm functions, which activate even when PDA is off!), memo areas (one where I keep passwords, medical info, emergency info and the other which is free-hand to take down quick notes, phone numbers, etc.) expense area (not used - can't comment), games (2), calculators, and a super large screen which avoids need to "wrap around" and scroll down to read... all of which can be password protected!

I purchased mine for $50, including cradle and set-up disc. For those who have Outlook Express (OE) which you can't sync with, (unlike the real "upgraded" Outlook), it's great that Casio has it's own operating system (OS). I couldn't tell you how many PDA's (4 at last count!) I purchased, and returned, because I couldn't sync w/OE and/or OS's weren't included.

This is a great gift... update family info on PC program and download into various PDA's and voila! Great for students of any age, kids finally moving out... they'll all have current contact info, birthdays, medical info, etc. at their fingertips, and with individual docking cradles, they can update as needed.

I could go on and on... I even talked my Dad into buying one and he loves it!

If you're not looking for email, camera functions, etc., this is the PDA for you! For $50 you can't go wrong... trust me!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Small Price To Pay For A Good PDA
I've had the Casio Cassiopeia Pocket Viewer for some time now and have found it to be a PDA worthy of rivaling any Royal brand organizer and can surpass any Sharp or other brand name organizer (under $100) I've seen out in the market. Among its many features, includes a calendar, scheduler (complete with To-do list, reminders, appointments, etc.), expense manager (which can calculate expenses by payment or expense type from particular dates), conversion calc, two games, and memo. In addition, it includes a Quick Memo feature which enables you to simply write out what you need to remember. You can also create a screensaver which briefly appears every time you turn on the Pocket Viewer from this feature. I especially like the great backlighting on this PDA. Also, I enjoy the Pocket Sheet feature which enables you to create your own mini spreadsheets. I've found it particularly useful for keeping track of class and textbook reading assignments. Apparently, you can also download Excel documents from your PC into your Pocket Viewer and vice versa, although I haven't tried it myself yet. You can also download other documents (games, etc.) from the Casio website by installing the free software that comes with your Pocket Viewer onto your PC. So overall, I'd say this PDA is great for anyone who wants the feel of a PDA (this PDA is actually more slimmer and easy to take along with you than most regular PDAs I've seen)--that is easy to use and has some good features on it-- without having to spend $100s of bucks for.

4-0 out of 5 stars This thing is great.
If you're looking for an inexpensive PDA to help organize your life, and don't need things like full color screens and wireless e-mail, look no further. I wanted a something to help keep me organized, but didn't want to spend hundreds on a bunch of high-tech toys I didn't need. The Cassiopeia PV-S400Plus Pocket Viewer is simple to use and a great value for the money. I read some reviews here complaining of it using up batteries quickly. I don't know where they're getting that. I bought one of these seven months ago and haven't had to change the batteries once. Highly recommended to anyone who needs an inexpensive, no bells and whistles organizer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Gets the Job Done
This will take care of all the basics for your personal organizational needs- scheduler, To-Do lists, contact info lists, MS Excel Spreadsheet program, basic calculator, free writing memo option, as well as some additional games. It doesn't have all of the exciting extras that some of the other programs have (i.e. email, color, etc) but it's one of the few high quality PDA's at a good price.

4-0 out of 5 stars Simplicity, Reliability, and Great Battery Life
I have used the PV-S250 for over two years and recently just got the PV-S400Plus for even less because the PV-S250 has been rather well used and I didn't want one of these overcomplicated power hungry expensive units. The software is virutally identical, so I was interested in extending the life of my PV-S250 and the PV-S400Plus was just the item.

I use the unit for two things: I make notes of system network ID's, device names, logons, common command syntax, support phone numbers, etc. and I synchronize with outlook all the time. I carry it around in my pocket and check my scedule liberally. The system can carry about 100 alarms, so I usually get a beep at my default reminder time in my outlook (15 minutes before a meeting). I also have access to all my Tasks and my Contacts.

The really useful aspect for me is the ability to modify my contacts, add phone numbers, email addresses, personal information, etc. to my Casio and then synch it back with Outlook. I can also take everything in my Outlook Contacts and Schedule with me whereever I go and never have to worry about remembering to put something into my Outlook if I have my PDA available. On the systems which I support that I don't touch very often, you can't imagine how useful it is to have the system ID number, network address or device name available because I saved it in my handheld. Plus, if you need to, you can password protect those items.

I am not interested in email on my PDA or anything really complex. I don't need an MP3 player or wireless web access. The spreadsheet capability is great if you really want to invest the time to synchronize with the Excel tool, but the screen is so small, that I find it not very worthwhile and I don't use it.

The simple expense tracking system is very useful and simple. I use it to track expenses on business trips and it does a great job.

I have not, as of yet, had any problem synchronizing with my PV-S400Plus, but I did occassionally with the PV-S250 and it was a royal pain to have to then do a full-synch since it ran about 9600 baud the whole time.

If you have a modem, you may wish to make sure you don't have interrupt conflicts, because my past experience with the PV-S250 was that it didn't like my fax modem being on at the same time.

One other drawback is that if you want to sychronize any of the other information like your notes, you do have to make a separate transfer from PCSynch. I don't like this aspect and I rarely use it. To date, I have never lost anything from memory in two years. I wish it had the ability to synch with the notes folder in Outlook instead. Also, while the Excel compatibility gives the unit a bit a power for calculations, I personally would rather have a it be able to read WORD files instead. But that is getting into bigger color units that are expensive.

My PV-S250 is still performing flawlessly even though it is showing some serious wear on the plastic exterior. Nevertheless, the unit has never failed me and the batteries last for over a month with regular use...try that with a color handheld PC!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A [value]!
I started looking for an inexpensive PDA to help me remember appointments and daily work schedule stuff. I intended to buy either a Palm III or a Handspring Visor, figuring that [it] was a good price compared to all the other prices I'd seen. Thank goodness I searched the Internet. I came across the Royal daVinci and the PV-400Plus, both cost [the same]. I bought the daVinci, and like what it offers, despite a minor glitch it had. You can get an optional mini-keyboard, you can upload new features into it, and it syncs with MS Outlook. Then I found a local store that had the Casio and decided I'd compare them. The Casio is half as thin, doesn't have a mini-keyboard (yet), you can't load new features into it, but it comes with what I needed. The one-handed dial is a bonus for looking up something quickly, and its size makes it easier to find a wallet case for (it'll fit into almost any Palm case). It syncs perfectly with MS Outlook at the touch of a button, using 95/98/NT, whatever. It comes with everything you need right out of the box. I kept the Casio and took the daVinci back the next day, and I've been loving it every since. Several of my friends are now re-evaluating their PDA options. As long as you don't need a PDA you can connect to the Internet with, I highly recommend the PV-400Plus.

5-0 out of 5 stars I'm a happy user!
I bought this organizer about two months ago. I can't say enough good things about it. It was less expensive than a Palm. It can do a lot of things: managing appointments, calculating currency extange, sketching, and a nice typing UI. Although some may not like the keyboard which you have to poke at, I find it rather easy to use. I'm glad that this machine doesn't have handwriting regognition. The reason I got this is that I couldn't read my own notes in my paper planner, so handwriting recognition wouldn't have done much. I only have one complaint: the area around the screen on mine got really scratched up and ugly. It works fine, and I haven't had to change the batteries yet. The synchronization software which comes with it (PC sync) works like a charm. It sends data quickly and easily to and from the Casio. Even though the PC Sync GUI is quite crude, it gets the job done. I regularly put jokes on my PV. It can store a lot of data. It's also a rather attractive unit. Where I go to school, everyone wants to use it, and play the little solitare game. (The solitare game is kind of difficult. I haven't won yet!) The scheduling part of the unit is the one which I use the most. I keep track of my assignments on it. It does a good job. I use it as an alarm clock, since it has an alarm function. I also have it go off when I need to do my homework. Another good thing about it is that it can be used until the year 2100. I won't have to buy another paper planner for the rest of my life! Thank you, Casio!

4-0 out of 5 stars A SUPER MACHINE
I HAVE USED THIS PRODUCT FOR 3 YEARS IN OUR CARPET BUSINESS. IT IS QUICK TO USE, WINDOWS FORMAT. VERY USER FRIENDLY. I PAID 100.OO FOR MINE AND NOW THEY ARE 1/2 THE PRICE. YOU WON'T BE DISSPOINTED.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cassiopeia- The future of Handhelds
Casio, this tops Palm, Royal, Sony, Sharp, etc.!!!! I think your Cassiopeia division is going some where. Someday the Palm Pilot will not be the leader- it'll be a Casio!! I believe in you and trust you- all the products are great. You really have a keeper here and I think that if you give more attention to your handhelds they'll be number 1 in no time. It was cheap, too! Wow, the best PDA I've ever seen

5-0 out of 5 stars A PDA for all ages
I'm 13 years old and it took me less time to figure this PDA out than my other five-dollar organizer. This was a worthwile purchase and with school approaching I'm sure it will be a great tool, especially with all the functions. The PC Sync is giving me some trouble, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. Thank you Casio- your Casioppea Pocket PCs are incredible! I definately recommend this PDA to everyone- whether you're a junior high nerd or a wealthy businessman- it's a PDA for all ages! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
I had an old version of the HP Jornado, it always crashed and the ActiveSync always exploded in my face! My Casio E115 Pocket PC doesn't have this problem. Its true MS really does get it right the 3rd time round! I'm extremely pleased with my Pocket PC, it provides all my trusted productivity tools as well as MP3, eBooks, Audio Books, Office capabilities and most awesome of all video. I love the thing, the only thing missing now is longer battery life and a GPRS version that is always on so I can access the Internet anywhere I go!

I think the PDA will become main stream very, very soon. I started with the Apple Newton and now I'm at the Pocket PC era, the Casio is a marval with the exception of being slow for content rich video. Apart from that I can't really fault it !

In terms of experience it is much better than PALM... Sorry .... Even people in the office who have been PALM loyalist are seriously considering switching as I'm always talking about it!

PALM, watch out Microsoft has really SOLD me in term of richness and experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Beats all aspects of Palm, hands down
Finally! Pocket PC builds on the already-suprisingly-good CE platform, and the end result is the PERFECT portable device. If you are still thinking in terms of a shirt-pocket rolodex with some basic synch functions and calendar/tasking apps, great... stick with Palm (or save your money and get a Rexx credit card device, which is infinitely smaller, more efficient, and performs the same basic services as a Palm).

Pocket PC is geared to power users who have graduated from Palm's lightweight feature set; the E-115 reads MP3s and WMA files from a CompactFlash card faster than I expected (no skips or delays whatsoever), and (shocked! stunned!) Pocket IE *is* a full-featured web browser that, when combined with a CompactFlash modem, puts the web in your hand wherever you have access to a standard phone plug. The UI is a delight (when was the last time you heard THAT?) and although the battery life is not great, it will last you the length of that boring plane ride. Great games, eBooks, and even the ability to use your Cassiopea as a web server (!!!) are just some of the features that make this the ONLY choice for the advanced handheld device user.

4-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little unit
I am so glad I finally bought this device after so many months of scrutinising the competitors. I almost settled on the EM500 until a comparison of specs showed it to be virtually the same in look/effect but an inferior unit in grunt (only 16MB of internal RAM).

EASE OF USE: The E115 is **very** easy to use -- a pulldown Start menu at the top left will get you in or out of any program instantly. The down side is there is no little 'x' at the top right to close your programs, and you can either live with them simply opening on top of each other, eventually slowing you down (or so I'm told), or you can make six (yes six) taps to get to the correct setting option to shut them down. While this sounds immensely annoying, I discovered it wasn't really and I just adapted, only going to close programs when I got to more than three open at once. And even with six programs running, I noted no discernable loss of speed. Further, the downloadable TaskPro Navigator program was written to fix this CE problem, for those who go nuts with more than one open program and want to close as they go.

READIBILITY: The color is fabulous -- and books/documents/report reading, one of the two main reasons I bought this, are excellent on the eye, even after two or three hours of reading. Nice big screen -- no green/grey backgrounds the early Palms et al which make me drowsy and my eyes achey after twenty minutes. E115 comes with Microsoft Reader so you can also download books for even easier-on-the-eyes reading. I love Reader mode. Top marks.

DESIGN FLAWS: There are five obvious design flaws: One, the AC adaptor plug is on the bottom, left side of the device and, when propped up in bed reading, you get it jabbing annoyingly into your chest. Sometimes I run it on batteries just to avoid the digging in power cord.

Two, the power button on the left side of the device can be bumped easily. While it doesn't matter if you bump it off (it always restarts with exactly what you had on your screen when working -- even your music starts up exactly where you left off! BRILLIANT.) It does have a problem that when you are sliding the unit into the case provided, it can bump 'on' and without knowing it, it could be powered on inside the case, draining down the batteries. Thus I now put it in the case and try and sneek a peek to see if it is on. (not easy) And yes, I immediately ordered a different style of case ASAP to prevent this.

Three: Serial port connection? Not a flaw so much as a bad decision. God, you could grow old and grey waiting for this thing to download an MP3. Takes me an hour on average for a four minute song. I want a USB cable!! Still, when you think about it, once you've downloaded all of what you need, like your favorite songs, you're all set. Apart from the occasional report (which in contrast takes only a minute or so to download) you won't really spend your life downloading stuff onto it. And if you want more than a dozen songs, constantly updated, you probably should consider buying an MP3 player instead.

Four: The record button is on the left of the unit -- handy if you want instant access I suppose, but given most people aren't journalists needing that quote in three seconds or less, a less accessible record button would be preferable. I am often bumping it and recording instantly a marvellous assortment of background sound without intending to. Nice waste of memory space that, if you're not careful. On the other hand, it is a pretty fabulous function in the first place and I like how you can easily name your sound bites and treat them like any other program.

Five: When you listen to music, the three front buttons are instantly reconfigured and can be reprogrammed as a mini remote. Therefore the button you usually use to scroll down in a document may be, for example, programmed to fast forward. Now what if you wanted to read a document AND listen to music? Setting the button at NONE in the program still disables it from its non-music scroll mode. So you have to use your pen to scroll down the document, while listening to music, regardless of whether the buttons are allocated a new function in Windows Media mode. Another small aside -- sometimes the music pauses as you open and close new programs.

INTERNET and EMAIL: Those wanting this unit for the Internet browsing ability when you buy optional extra the modem card, I do not recommend it. It's taken an eternity for me to configure this correctly to go online and it still won't let me access some sites, like hotmail and google, for no reason I can fathom. Some tell me it's just the nature of the Windows CE environment. If this is so -- and net browsing is why you bought it, it's a rip-off. Fortunately it wasn't what I needed it for, so I don't care so much. And it may just be (my) human error, so do more research. Meanwhile I still can't figure out how to configure it to send an Outlook email from it (despite reading every instruction I could find), although mercifully there are some sites I can surf to and send an email from there, so it's not an impossible problem. Meanwhile its synchronisation between PC and unit with Outlook Express is trouble free, but it won't synch with any other mail programs you might use on your PC like Eudora.

PICTURES: Nice clear vivid images. You'll love how they come up.

SOUND: Oh baby, here's where I go nuts. A built-in MP3 player that you don't HAVE to use earphones to use! You can just hit play and wow a roomful of your friends. It's excellent. Lovely quality and it compares well with the top-of-the-line Iomega hip-zip mp3 player I also own.

CALENDAR/APPOINTMENTS/CONTACT: So easy to use and sort it was a godsend. And with the Today menu button you can always see at a glance what's up with your tasks, appointments and mails. Excellent. Contact list is brilliant and you can store multiple phone numbers and emails for the one person.

SUMMARY: The flaws sound worse than they are. This has proved to be a most savvy purchase. With 32mb inbuilt and endlessly expandable thanks to the type1 compact flash card slot on the back, you'll be set forever if you want. The AC adaptor means even if you kill the battery and can't find a new one, you can still use it till the day you die. The color is so amazing you have to see it to believe it; and the MP3 player is of a fine quality. For those who need it to read lots of stuff this is absolutely the right unit. Accept no substitutes. There's plenty of programs to download, too, and I doubt I'll ever tire of it. Unless I/they fix the internet problems, (depending on who is responsible) I wouldn't recommend it for this. But for every other function, I'd give it 10 out of 10.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Class of its Own
Excellent battery life. Color and screen easy to read. Easy to connect and highly compatible with Windows 98. Expansion cards readily available. Great back up capability to expansion card. However buttons are too easily pushed that activate the device ( a press and hold feature to turn on would be nice). This is the third PDA I have purchased and find this one to be the finest on the market.

3-0 out of 5 stars Almost Great
This product had great potential, but there just aren't enough programs that work through Windows CE and 98 seamlessly. Casio has made a device that is lightning fast and has an amazing display (131 MHz and over 65,000 colors). The only real qualm I have with this machine, other than the software problems, is the battery. If you leave it off for a few days the battery is wasted and your memory is completely erased (I had the same problem a few years ago with a first generation Nino). When Microsoft gets its act together and makes their CE software more reliable they will have the Palm-PC market cornered and devices like these will be worth while. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Works With IPAQ Too
My company originally bought these cards for use in the Casio E-105, E-115 and E-125's. Then we switched to Compaq IPAQ 3635's. These cards work beautifully. It is the smallest CF Modem card out there.

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply the best Pocket PC, hands down.
Like most of you out there, I did alot of research before deciding on a PDA/pocket pc to invest in. Alot of that research done right here at Amazon, reading your various opinions. In the end, the PDA race for me finished off with 3 finalists.

COMPAQ Ipaq 3650 HP Jornada Casio Cassiopeia E-125

All the compelling reasons are there for them all. But in the end, I thought, what would be the REAL reason for having a portable system with me. Data storage? Processor power? Screen magnificence.

The CASIO won out hands down with literally ALL of the above. It's size disadvantage is really not a disadvantage at all. I don't believe I would trust myself to put an expensive device in my pocket and have me absentmindedly bump into a chair or something and break it. My CASIO is safely in my portfolio. It's light, convenient and POWERFUL. I use an Access compatible database program to actively use my Casio at work. Money works fabulous on it, and the Activesync link is flawless. It works each and every time and syncs everything.

All in all, I could not be happier with this little powerhouse. I love it and recommend it WHOLEHEARTEDLY!

PS: Pick up a pack of PDA SCREEN WRITERIGHT plastic protector sheets. They give a total sense of security.

This is actually very good handheld here, i recommend you to buy it because it has a very bright screen when i sychronise it doesn't crash like other TOO complicated machines.

5-0 out of 5 stars This little unit Rocks
Can't believe how they can get so much in so little space. I bought the 128mb storage card and in the WMA format, loaded over 100 of my favorite songs. Plugged into my outdated tape player in my car, through the headphone jack of the Cassiopeia and a casette adapter, this thing just rocks. It's much more than just an organizer, but I use it to know exactly where I've been and what I've done as far as work and billing my hours for payment. Battery life is phenomenal and recharging is a snap in the USB cradle, as well as downloading or uploading info to my desktop.

5-0 out of 5 stars Casio does it again!
Why do I always find a super product when the company decides to stop making it?
I bought my Cassiopeia E-125 Pocket PC at a sale that I soon found was a Discontinued Item sale. It figures! When I went back to buy my wife one they were out and weren't getting any more. Oh, well! Web, here I come!
The ease of use of this product has me convinced that Casio could take over the market if they would push their marketing harder.
Out of the box, I was impressed by the clear, colorful display, and solid feel. This unit is a little bigger than some of its competitors, and feels better to me. It doesn't quite fit in my shirt pocket, but I bought a case that works just fine.
The controls are readily accessible, even to a left-handed klutz, and I find that this is the only Pocket PC I've used that doesn't care that I'm a Lefty. Many of the others have controls that I can't reach, or a cover that gets in the way constantly.
Casio has put the really necessary controls on the front, reachable by either hand, and the other buttons are all useable by thumb (left hand) or fingers (right hand).
The software packaged with the unit is easy, efficient, and effective. Contacts and Calendar I use constantly, and the automatic sync with Outlook on my Desk computer is flawless.
I'm also using a GPS and Mapping software (Delorme) that works real-time, so when I'm traveling I set a cradle with the Cassiopeia on the cup holder, and know exactly where I am and what's coming.
The product has met or exceeded all of my needs and has proved to be a rugged/reliable addition to my stable of "toys".

5-0 out of 5 stars Casio E-125
I thought I really liked this ppc until I bought Pocket Facelift and completely fell in love with it all over again! It has the look and feel of a PocketPC200 device with the facelift software loaded. I can close programs easily now, manage my storage card, menus vastly improved and overall visually improved. I can use Themes like the 2002 devices. Only drawback is the Storage/Program Memory slider. Its autoconfigured. I liked to slide the memory more to the left to make more speed for the device. It's just as fast this way, but that's the only difference. Anyone who wants or already has an E-125 should get the Pocket Facelift software. The difference is unbelieveable. I use the ppc way more now. ... Read more

The Casio E-11 is definitly one of the earlier PDA's.
First of all the the screen is kind of dark.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Casio beats Palm Pilot in functionality - HANDS DOWN!
I was in the market for a PDA, I was losing track of my calendar, contacts and todos. I did my homework and researched all of the products that are available today. The full color and "compactness" of the Casio E-100 is such a life-saver. I knew several people who had the 3COM Palm Pilot - but the green screen with gray type just wasn't friendly on my eyes. The CASIO E-100 gives you the ability to record by voice and drag the file it creates to your regular computer desktop. It synchs perfectly with Outlook 2000 (which I currently use). It also permits the user to choose which items to synch - just in case you do not want to select your entire inbox (especially if you are a mail hog.) It comes with 16MB of memory and is expandable to 32MB in a spare PDA slot. You have the choice of using an "online" keyboard, or you may write "freehand" using the stylus. The writing recognition is very easy to use. After using it for one day, I knew how to write instead of tapping on the "online" keyboard. I would be absolutely lost without my CASIO.

5-0 out of 5 stars E100 is 100% fun
I recently purchased the E100 after owning the E15 and a PV200A. The E15 was a little hard to see and the PV200A, while very reliable, did not have handwritting recognition. I compred the E100 to the Palm, and for the money the features of the Casio are much better. I have had absolutely no problems and utilize it extensively for note taking and contact storing. I am currently on my 4th day of using the same battery. This is a great product with appealing upgrade capability. Recommend to anyone looking to buy full feature PDA.

5-0 out of 5 stars Older model but still a great buy.
I bought mine a couple of weeks ago despite all of the latest and greatest technology out there with other PDA's. I must tell you, I am VERY impressed. It might be a bit bulky compared with newer models but it has all of the functionality that anyone could need and a beautiful color display. Anyone looking to get a more basic model and not spend as much money, go for this. You'll be amazed at what it can do.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Neato
I bought my cassie when it first came out years ago, when it was $500, plus accessories! I still don't have a desire to get anything more. There is one exception. If I ever need to go wireless, and although I could add the necessary accessories to my cassie, I might rather buy a new, smaller PDA with built in communications capabilities, like the Blackberry, or even one of those PDA phones.

5-0 out of 5 stars casio e-100 palm size pc
I started out with a Palm V and thought it was the best ever. Even the green screen didn't put me off I just loved it. It was the first time I could truly say I was organised. Later I bought the Palm 515 and this had colour and was good, but it had no sound so I bought an iPAQ which had sound but felt the loss of the Palm OS was tragic (now using the far less stable Windows CE) still I continued and enjoyed the sound and movie playing on my iPAQ. Then I bought the E-100 second hand (the price was good so I grabbed it), and found that I like it best of all, mostly because of the TFT screen with more colours than the iPAQ, the feel of it in the hand, and built in expansion taking compact flash cards which means unlimited memory. Compact flash is less expensive and more common than the MMC (compact flash 2)cards used by Palm. These expansion packs you have to buy as an extra with the iPAQ.
Programs are hard to get for the E-100 but when you get one that works it is good. The programs look good and feel good to use. The battery lasts all day in the E-100 even though it was already used before I bought it, but iPAQ only lasts a few hours and this unit was brand new. In my opinion the E-100 is a brilliant PDA and I would like to see later incarnations of this unit. I still have two iPAQs but really love my E-100. I hope this is of some help to you. ...

Amazon.com Review

The Cassiopeia EM-500, Casio's follow-up to its E-100 series of personaldigital assistants, closely mirrors the E-115 but offers a few changes. Thebiggest change is the move to using MultiMediaCard (MMC) memory over the morestandard CompactFlash memory slot. The postage stamp-size MMC cards offer neededmemory expandability (as the EM-500 comes with only 16 MB of internal memory,compared to the 32 MB of the E-115), especially if you plan to use the EM-500 asa portable MP3 player--one of its many multimedia capabilities.

While MMC over CompactFlash limits the ability of the EM-500 to use many PocketPC peripherals, we were willing to overlook that once we got a peek at the EM-500'sgorgeous TFT screen. This very bright, very colorful (65,536 colors, to beexact) display shines beautifully when you're playing games or watching mobilevideo player clips, which run along at a respectable 15 to 20 frames per secondwith the EM-500's 150 MHz MIPS processor.

The thick EM-500 (about twice the thickness of the Palm Vx) offers standardCasio programmable buttons to bring up the menu, calendar, and contacts, as wellas a navigational D-pad, which is great for gaming. In addition to functioningas a stereo MP3 player (when using the included headphones), the EM-500 alsoworks as a voice recorder, allowing you to dictate reminders for yourself orvoice messages to send with e-mail. Casio promises six hours of battery life,but we often were able to get seven or more as long as we left the backlight onmedium brightness.

With its IrDA port, the EM-500 can communicate with wireless devices, and itsUSB connection provides speedy data transfer--even installing programs largerthan a megabyte took only a few seconds.

Despite the limited memory and the lack of CompactFlash support, the powerfulprocessor, excellent display, and long battery life make the EM-500 acompetitive entry into the Pocket PC market. --J. Curtis

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent PDA
I love PDA's (and computers in general, for that matter) and this is an excellent device. There was a time when I swore by Palm's pda's, but while Windows CE (now known as Pocket PC) has evolved to near-desktop power, the Palm has remained virtually unchanged. Of the Pocket PC's available, this unit is the best compromise of size and power. It packs a 150mhz cpu (more powerful than the HP Jornada, less than the Ipaq), 16mb of ram, and an amazing screen capable of displaying 16bit color. The Ipaq and HP Jornada can both only do 12-bit color at best. All of that is packed in a comfortable, small device that feels extremely solid in the hand.

While I do believe the EM-500 is probably the best unit available, it does have a few draw-backs. The miserly 16mb of ram is hardly enough... if you buy this make sure to get a 32mb or 64mb memory card to go with it. My other complaints are minimal: lack of hardware volume control, location of IRDA port... but none of these minor issues really impact the usefulness of the unit.

Definitely a great PDA, and well worth the money.

The Cassiopeia EM-500 looks like a pretty sweet deal. It can do almost anything the E-115 does, and it's smaller and faster. If you compare the EM-500 to the E-115, you'll notice that the E-115 has 32MB of memory, where the EM-500 has 16MB. Also, the EM-500 offers the multimedia card memory system, so memory can be easily expanded.

The EM-500 seems targeted at a younger market, with great multimedia capabilities (MP3, 240 x 320 TFT 65,536 color screen, excellent gamepad).

Its main competitor, the Compaq iPaq, offers more memory and speed, but less colors, and, most importantly perhaps, the keypad of the iPaq cannot register simultaneous clicks, which limits its gameplay capabilities.

If you want a good Pocket PC for both "serious stuff" and games and multimedia, the EM-500 seems the way to go. A fine product by Casio, with more memory I would have given it 5 stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars Three years old
I've had mine for three years. I did buy it new, though. I have been eyeing the Dell Axim, but since there is nothing wrong with my Casio, I can't find any reason to switch.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor craftsmanship!
Sure the em-500 is great, while it works! I bought two units off ebay and they were like new when I received them. One worked fine for only about six months, then the internal memory died and left me with a 200 dollar paperweight. The second lasted another six months. Then it too, developed a case of the internal flu. It won't even work right long enough for me too get the information stored in it off! If it were just one unit I might think I were just unlucky, but two going bad tells me these aren't built to withstand even normal use! A paper and pencil would have been so much cheaper!

5-0 out of 5 stars Too Cool
I purchased it 2 years ago. I used it just a little. Now I sell real estate, and I think it just great. I am learning how many wonderful features it has. The screen is a little hard to read in the sun, but what are sun-glasses for??? I wish that they had not stop making it. Most of my friends use the palm, and they are always saying how hard it is to use, this em-500 is a breeze. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

The Cassiopeia EM-500, Casio's follow-up to its E-100 series of personaldigital assistants, closely mirrors the E-115 but offers a few changes. Thebiggest change is the move to using MultiMediaCard (MMC) memory over the morestandard CompactFlash memory slot. The postage stamp-size MMC cards offer neededmemory expandability (as the EM-500 comes with only 16 MB of internal memory,compared to the 32 MB of the E-115), especially if you plan to use the EM-500 asa portable MP3 player--one of its many multimedia capabilities.

While MMC over CompactFlash limits the ability of the EM-500 to use many PocketPC peripherals, we were willing to overlook that once we got a peek at the EM-500'sgorgeous TFT screen. This very bright, very colorful (65,536 colors, to beexact) display shines beautifully when you're playing games or watching mobilevideo player clips, which run along at a respectable 15 to 20 frames per secondwith the EM-500's 150 MHz MIPS processor.

The thick EM-500 (about twice the thickness of the Palm Vx) offers standardCasio programmable buttons to bring up the menu, calendar, and contacts, as wellas a navigational D-pad, which is great for gaming. In addition to functioningas a stereo MP3 player (when using the included headphones), the EM-500 alsoworks as a voice recorder, allowing you to dictate reminders for yourself orvoice messages to send with e-mail. Casio promises six hours of battery life,but we often were able to get seven or more as long as we left the backlight onmedium brightness.

With its IrDA port, the EM-500 can communicate with wireless devices, and itsUSB connection provides speedy data transfer--even installing programs largerthan a megabyte took only a few seconds.

Despite the limited memory and the lack of CompactFlash support, the powerfulprocessor, excellent display, and long battery life make the EM-500 acompetitive entry into the Pocket PC market. --J. Curtis

5-0 out of 5 stars I own one
This is a great pda for the price and it works well with windows which is a major plus. I am a med student and use mine to reference material quickly (it makes me look like a genius). Anyway, it has lot of other app as well so you can use it to play your fav song... on the train/bus or edit email or read a book... I COULD GO ON AND ON... anyway, good deal especially if you find one used.

4-0 out of 5 stars High quality, limited expandability
I purchased the EM500 as my first PDA, along with a 64MB MMC card. The card allows me to store vast amounts of data and music on MMC, compensating somewhat for the barebones 16 MB of RAM permitted in this device.

Due to technological changes by Microsoft, the EM-500 and most other Pocket PCs on the market as of August 2001 cannot be upgraded to the new Windows Pocket PC 2002 operating system.

Assuming you need to buy a PDA before the new generation of Pocket PC 2002 PDAs reaches the market, the EM-500 is a great choice.

The video quality is excellent. The unit design is simple, sturdy and elegant. The included applications are more than sufficient for the average PDA or MP3 user. The success of the character and handwriting recognition software in translating simple messages was a pleasant surprise.

For added convenience, buy Casio's EM500 docking cradle.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent PDA
I love PDA's (and computers in general, for that matter) and this is an excellent device. There was a time when I swore by Palm's pda's, but while Windows CE (now known as Pocket PC) has evolved to near-desktop power, the Palm has remained virtually unchanged. Of the Pocket PC's available, this unit is the best compromise of size and power. It packs a 150mhz cpu (more powerful than the HP Jornada, less than the Ipaq), 16mb of ram, and an amazing screen capable of displaying 16bit color. The Ipaq and HP Jornada can both only do 12-bit color at best. All of that is packed in a comfortable, small device that feels extremely solid in the hand.

While I do believe the EM-500 is probably the best unit available, it does have a few draw-backs. The miserly 16mb of ram is hardly enough... if you buy this make sure to get a 32mb or 64mb memory card to go with it. My other complaints are minimal: lack of hardware volume control, location of IRDA port... but none of these minor issues really impact the usefulness of the unit.

Definitely a great PDA, and well worth the money

3-0 out of 5 stars Would score it much higher except for a couple concerns
I had the unique opportunity to use and evaluate the Casio EM500 for a week to determine if I was interested in purchasing it. At the end of that week, I really wanted to buy this PDA, but I had some lingering concerns that kept me from doing so. Here are some of my thoughts after using it:

-First off, I really loved the display on this unit. It was extremely bright and easy to read even in daylight. I would not have thought it, but a color screen made a HUGE difference. I had a Palm Pilot before, so I know what I'm talking about here. This Casio has one of the best displays of any of the color units.

-I really liked the PocketPC OS with just a few exceptions. As I mentioned earlier, I have had a Palm Pilot in the past. Of the two operating systems, I prefer the PocketPC. This is largely due to the fact that I use a lot of Microsoft products (Outlook, Word, Excel, Money) and it was extremely easy to synch with data with these applications. Some people prefer the Palm OS's simplicity, but for what I needed to do, I found greater functionality in the PocketPC. The only reservations I had was that the PocketPC makes in annoyingly difficult to close applications and its navigation could be simplified.

-The actual hardware design of this unit is fair. It's a little on the bulky side, but I never expected to be able to fit it in my pocket to begin with. While I liked the semi-scroll wheel on the side, I never used the multi-directional D-pad on the front. In fact, I rarely used any of the buttons on the front. I was also very disappointed that there was no cradle included. The USB cable was kind of awkward to have lying across my desk, and I would have appreciated a cradle to set the unit in when not in use.

-Battery life was impressive. While I never did an official test, I was often able to go through two days of normal use before needing to recharge. The unit uses a Lithium Ion battery.

-Don't underestimate the benefit of having Internet Explorer and Microsoft Reader as included applications. Using Avantgo (which is included), it is very easy to read news, weather, and stocks from sources like MSN and Yahoo. The problem is that it is not a live connection to the Internet, and you must wait until you synch with a PC again to get the information updated. It was also fairly easy to find e-books for Microsoft Reader.

-This unit only comes with 16mb memory. While that is more than enough to run most of the bundled applications, don't expect to play many MP3's on the Media Player unless you buy additional memory.

That brings me to the biggest single drawback of this PDA and the reason I did not end up buying it. This Casio EM500 has a MMC (Multi-Media Card) expansion slot. Most of the PDA's today use Compact Flash memory slots. This means that while I could find MMC memory to buy for my Casio, I could not find very many other expansion options. There are no modems available, or cameras, or any other type of expansion pack available other that just a memory card. Being that MMC is not really catching on, at least in the USA, I worry even about the availability of MMC memory packs in the future. While this may not be important to many people, it was to me. If I am going to spend this much money on a PDA, I want it to last for a while. I want to be able to be able to expand or upgrade the unit as new technologies and products occur. Even Casio seems to realize they made a mistake by using MMC in this unit rather than Compact Flash. Newer Casio models now use Compact Flash.

NOTE: Casio announced recently that EM500 will be capable of supporting SD (secure digital) memory cards. This will require a downloadable update from the Casio web site. Even with this announcement I still am concerned about upgradability options. I have yet to see anyone selling SD memory cards.

If you are not interested in expansions such modems and such, then this is an excellent PDA for you and a great value. I give it four stars (****) in that case. For those of you that are like me and crave expansion, I would suggest looking at the Casio E-125, or better yet, the Compaq iPaq line of handhelds.

My only complaint is with the dull metalic red color, I was expecting a more vibrant red!

2-0 out of 5 stars The technology is not yet ready for this machine
I got the E-105 and have used it for a few months now. The MP3 player is OK, but after playing 5 or 6 songs, it hogs memory and starts cracking. The only way to remedy is to soft reset the machine. Using the MP3 player slowly drains the memory until it performs painfully slow. The sync cradle does not work properly and disconnects from the computer at random intervals. The screen is all scratched from using the stylus (weak). The more programs loaded onto the 32 megs of internal memory, the slower it gets. Loading even 1 MP3 file on the 32 megs of internal memory makes it painfully slow. What is the point of having so much memory if you can't use it? CE could use a new version too. There is no option to close programs. You have to either reset the machine or go to START, SETTINGS, SYSTEM, TASK MANAGER, END TASK to close programs. What's up with that? The intent for a good product is there, but don't beleive the hype, this product is not ready for the masses.

5-0 out of 5 stars No Comparision!
I've owned everything from Apple's Newton to the Palm Pilot. Nothing compares to the E100 or E105. I purchased an E100 when they first came out and recently upgraded to the E105. My only complaint with the unit is that it's more difficult to find software and accessories for as compared to a Palm Pilot. The hardware is great. Those little nuances such as the built in joystick and digital stereo sound are hard to live without. I've added the camera attachment for it. It's nice, but not a substitute for a real digital camera. I've also added the IBM 340 micro drive, which I've easily filled with software (mapping, games, application, reference, digital audio books and MP3 audio files). I recommend Utopiasoft's Hum for MP3 playback. If you're a businessperson, I definitely recombined Casio Soft's pTab software. It's an Excel compatible spreadsheet app that's incredible. I also recommend eWallet. It allows you to carry around everything (except money) you carry in your regular wallet (travel membership info, credit cards, passwords, pictures, etc.). You can also use the E105 to browse the Internet. One quick cable and a $20 web browser on you're on the Net (Not pseudo web browsing (two way paging) like the Palm VI), but real browsing of color web pages with graphics. In this short of space, I can't communicate everything this PDA is to me. Just buy one and you'll see!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best PPC out there
I've had my E-105 for about a week now and wouldn't part without it. It's perfect for toting around all my personal info as well as some minor computing tasks. Love using the note feature for jotting down notes in a meeting... also a crowd pleaser (perfect stall when you need one). The handwriting recognition 'JOT' is much easier to learn than Palm's Grafitti.

My only gripe is not with the product but more with WinCE. When you want to turn a program off, you have to go UTILITIES->SYSTEM->SELECT PROGRAM->CLICK END TASK. A pain when you've got a few apps open and need some more memory, but that's a CE thing that I'm sure MS will fix. The best PDA out there!

5-0 out of 5 stars Cassiopeia beats PalmPilot by a mile
I recently bought a Cassiopeia and I am happy to say that I have ABSOLUTLY NO PROBLEM WITH IT! Well, except y that you can't play Age of Empires II on it!

The Cassiopeia has helped me get much more organised. It's "Tasks" menu let's you enter all the things you have to do, and it reminds you to do them!

You can take down notes in it; It's got a character recodniser as well as a keyboard, and this alows for fast typing speeds.

I've also Heard that you can buy an emulator of the Net for it, and this alows you to play any game you want on the Cassiopeia! If Anyone knows where this site is, E-mail me at: Rohama@hotmail.com

4-0 out of 5 stars Palm on Steroids
I picked the E-105 vs. other PDA's (previously owning a Palm 5000 & a Psion 5) because of it's color display, spacious memory/expandibility, and the ability to play stereo MP3s. I can view images from my digital camera on it (because it can use compact flash cards - I have 100 megs worth!), and I keep full color pictures on it. It syncs very well with Outlook (faster than a Palm) and it retains all the Outlook functionality (notes in an event). It hooks up to a PC via a serial port although USB would be much better (this would be an incredible addition for transfering large MP3 files). I bought Microsoft Maps & Streets ($20 after the rebate), and I can create custom US maps (it doesn't highlight your route for you... and you have to cut and paste the directions as text files). The Microsoft Audio Player does not play MP3s natively from a flash card and you have to use the proprietary .WMA format, so I bought the Conduits' Pocket MP3 Player (I have gigs of MP3s). Unfortunetely, there is a slight buzzing when I play back MP3 (during quiet passages... it's not terrible, but it is noticable). Battery life is about 2 hours (of audio playback), but strictly as a PDA (calendar, contacts, reading email, & notes), it can last a couple of days. The movie player is neat to demo, but it's not all that useful (it would be cool if I could USB transfer a video of the daily Top News Stories to it - 2.5 minute of video is 6.6 megs). Doom runs on it (the screen is too small). I can play Audible audio books on it. All in all, it's a true multimedia PDA. I just ordered a keyboard for it, and I hope to use it on the coach seat of an airplane to write/reply to emails (rather than powering up my clunky laptop). ... Read more
