    Amazon.com Review

    The release of the Palm m515 handheld proves that Palm listens to customers and is willing to make changes. Thanks to the indifferent customer response to the lackluster color screen of the Palm m505 (released in 2001), the Palm m515 boasts a much brighter display and contrast controls that were missing in its predecessor.

    We were among the many who voiced disappointment with the Palm m505, and while the m515's color screen still isn't at the top of the class, it's an obvious and welcome improvement. With display support for over 65,000 colors, icons and images (viewed in the included PhotoSuite application) have a nice richness and depth of color. However, as the screen resolution is only 160 by 160 pixels, the m515 doesn't achieve the crispness found in the Sony T615 (which has a 320 by 320 pixel resolution). But ultimately, unless you need a high-end multimedia viewer integrated into your handheld, you should be suitably happy with the m515's display.

    There are only three levels of brightness contrast control--high, low, and off. At first we were taken aback by the "off" setting, as it rendered the screen almost invisible in our office, but it's fine for outdoor usage and will help conserve battery power.

    With its curved angles, thin design, and light weight, the Palm m515 feels very comfortable, both in the palm of your hand and resting in your pocket. Also, with the m515's 33 MHz DragonBall VZ processor, we found switching applications to be very fast.

    The applications and desktop software (version 4.01 for Windows and version 2.6.3 for Mac) haven't changed, and that's just fine with us. (Note that a beta version of Palm Desktop 4 for Mac OS X is available for download.) The Palm interface is one of the most elegant and simple to understand--yet powerful--operating systems around.

    But Palm adds more power with a variety of add-on applications that you can choose to install, ranging from Documents To Go for viewing and editing Word and Excel documents, to Palm's collection of mobile connectivity apps, to the aforementioned PhotoSuite for viewing images and short movies. Our favorite is AvantGo, an app that downloads Web content to the m515 whenever you synchronize, which enables us to keep up with the latest world news as well as Aussie Rules Football scores. You can add even more content and applications via the expansion slot, using optional Secure Digital or MultiMediaCard memory cards.

    You can choose to synchronize the Palm m515 with the Palm Desktop application or link to Microsoft Outlook (Windows only). Palm Desktop is more than adequate, but if you are in a corporate environment and Outlook is your scheduling/e-mailing/tasking brain center (which it is for us), the synchronization is seamless.

    Overall, we're very happy with the Palm m515--it's quick on its feet, has a nice color display, and is loaded with great software additions that can enhance both your productivity and your fun. --Agen G.N. Schmitz

    Pros:

    • Improved color screen--brighter, with contrast controls
    • Good range of additional software, from Internet connectivity to e-book reader
    • Expansion slot enables you to add even more content and applications to customize the m515 to your needs
    • Easy synchronization with Palm Desktop or Microsoft Outlook
    Cons:
    • Continued use of high brightness level can wear on batteries
    • Palm Desktop for Mac still behind the times, but new software on the way

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best Colour Palm For It's Time
    The Palm m515, in my words, was the saviour for Palm's goof: m505.

    Compared to the m505, the m515 came with 8MB more memory (a total of 16MB), and a brightness control, which help made it the best of all Palms. It has the look of the old V series, 16MB, hi-res colour, and expandability (uses Multimedia and Secure Digital cards), this Palm is the best idea since the first one.

    (My wife uses my old m515, which replaced her m130. My parents also still uses their m515.)

    The rechargeable battery, which isn't replaceable, stays charge for about two weeks. I suggest you get a cigarette charger if you're on the road a lot.

    There are many third-party software, hardware, and accessories still available for the m515--more than what's available for it's replacement model the Tungsten E.

    If you want a professional, slick, and/or versatile PDA that is inexpensive and fairly new, then I would suggest the m515.

    Don't waste you money on the m505. And, I wouldn't suggest the m500--why spend the money for all the technology and get no colour screen?

    If you want a new model and want hardware attachments (utilizing the universal connector), I suggest getting a Tungsten T2/T3 or the Zire 71.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect
    I owned a Palm III for four plus years and was very happy with it. Then my purse was stollen with the Palm in it and I was forced to update. I read the reviews on the Palm M130 and decided it was for me. I ordered it without visiting a store to check out the real thing and I found that it was much thicker and heavier than my Palm III. I keep my Palm in a wallet organzier and I could barely close the wallet with the M130 in it. Therefore, I returned it and I am awaiting my refund. In its place, I purchased the M515 instead. SO far, I am very happy with the 515, especially its width. The only annoying thing about the product is that they have an attractive slip on leather cover but the cover will not stay on the Palm. Otherwise, the software was very easy to install and the Palm is meeting all of my needs. The color screen is nice and the battery has not worn out yet after one week of use. Why can't they make the cover work though? I never had a single complaint about my Palm III.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Worked great for about a year
    I absolutely loved this handheld until it stopped syncing.

    When I started having this issue I contacted Palm immediately. They said it was a problem with static electricity - or something like that - and promised to send me a card to reset the thing. Well they took months to send it and it still didn't work. Now my warranty is over and they won't honor my claim although it started during the warranty period. I am not going to pay $125.00. It just isn't worth it.

    Now it is nothing more than a play toy for my children.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Great Palm until it dies an early death.
    Let me start by saying that the only reason I did not give this Palm only 1 star is because while it was working, I absolutely loved it. This was a great Palm pilot and I used it for pretty much everything. I loaded it up with third party software, filled my expansion card with e-books and played games with very few problems. I cannot highly recommend this unit and give it a 5 star rating due to the short life span compared to the price of $300 - $400 when I bought it a little over a year ago.

    I started with a Palm xe, then a Palm IIIc, and ended up with a Palm m515. The Palm xe literally fell apart - the buttons snapped apart making it useless. When the Palm IIIc stopped working, I gave Palm the $125 to refurbish my unit which they did. Then about a year later it was accidentally put into the laundry while I was in the hospital after giving birth to my daughter, which is how I ended up with the m515. Now, just over a year later my Palm m515 just stopped working.

    As much as I miss my Palm, I can't justify giving Palm another $125 to "refurbish" my unit or go out and purchase another brand new unit for $200 or more. I have spent SO much money on Palm PDA's and related items over the last three or four years that I feel like a junkie. I've been doing my research here at Amazon trying to find out if Sony is any better and it seems they are pretty much the same.

    The irony is that Palm is selling products that do so much, but if you use all of the functionality, you drastically limit the life of the unit. So until these guys can make a sturdier product that has a longer life, they have lost me as a customer. And COME ON, give us a replaceable freaking battery already!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Hot Sync Problems
    I really really liked my palm until one day it stopped syncing. I didn't do anything to it, it just no longer made a connection with the USB on my computer. My warranty was up so I had to pay if I wanted to talk to the Palm tech support people. I did some searching on the internet and discovered that many others had the same problem--funny Palm made no mention of that as I went through all the trouble shooting wizards on their website. Also really irritating that they do not have a way to solve the problem. Palm does have a program that will drain the battery which apparantly makes the palm sync again, but many Internet posts have said that this makes the battery fritzy thereafter. I have purchased a serial cradle which apparently is free of the syncing problem to hopefully allow me to use my palm again. No matter how good the product is, if it doesn't sync with my computer it is WORTHLESS. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good PDA but soon to be replaced.
    Clie SJ33 had very good form factor and design. There's no need to spend extra $$ on case or hardcase. The built in flip protects the screen and looks cool. Hold/power switch is also very nice for mp3 playback.

    The major pro's are,
    1. Good build quality and stylish casing.
    2. Jog dial, hold switch and memory stick expansion slot.
    3. HiRes color display and good backlight.
    4. About 7-8 hrs of battery life with mp3 playback.
    5. Runs Palm OS 4 which has zillion free apps available. Very easy, reliable and not bloatware unlike Windoze on PocketPC.

    Con's,
    1. Only 128kbps or low bitrate mp3 can be played.
    2. Uses a Lithium Ion battery...
    3. To be discontinued and replaced by a newer model by Sony very soon.
    4. Memory stick is expensive compared to CF cards. Plus this model won't support new MS Pro sticks.

    If you can wait for till Sept/Oct new Sony PDA's should come out with Palm OS 5 and better features at same price point.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Love this thing!
    I upgraded from a Handspring Visor Deluxe that I have been using for almost 3 years. The Clie's higher resolution screen and text look really nice. Colors are bright indoors (a little washed in sunlight). Battery life is very good although I wished they would have included a cradle for recharging and synching. Sony only included cables that plug directly into a port at the bottom of the pda.

    I really enjoy the built-in mp3 player and the jog-dial on the side. The unit fits nicely in my front pocket where it can be quickly accessed. Installation and setup were a snap.

    Pros Summary:

    - Great screen resolution and colors.
    - Small size and convenient flip cover.
    - Integrated mp3 player works and sounds great.
    - Good battery life
    - Reasonably priced

    Cons:

    - Recessed buttons on front bottom can be kind of hard to press.
    - No cradle (just plug-in cables).
    - Included datebk does not include the week-at-a-glance that was
    included on my old visor.
    - No voice recorder.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent PDA for an affordable cost
    This is my 2nd PDA. I had a Casio PV-S1600. So I was used to monochrome screen and no snazzy apps.
    This palm OS based color CLIE just blasted me away.
    The palm 4 os based software are easily available online. The PDA serves all my purpose ... entertainment or work. The built in mp3 player is great.
    I give it a thumbs up!

    Cons:
    A faster proccessor and RAM needed... (yes im greedy)
    No cradle available with package
    Built in Speaker not loud enough

    1-0 out of 5 stars Lousy product support from Sony
    We bought several units for office staff. Liked the unit's functionality, but several units had re-charging issues. Could not get satisfactory help from Sony, wanted nearly $500 to "fix" one unit, claiming that it had evidence of moisture damage to the mother board. At that time, it was less than two weeks out of the box, and never exposed to moisture. There was no one from Sony to talk to, despite their fancy voice interactive service line. Called numerous times. Best I got was a commitment that the service team that dealt with it would call me back within 24 hours.... nothing doing. Eventually returned the unit to me - without repair done.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good but flimsy
    I was happy with the features and screen of this PDA, although its plastic construction felt flimsy compared to my old Palm V. Unfortunately, I have had to return this CLIE for repair/replacement. The innards of the memory stick slot broke loose. SONY warranty service answered my call promptly, and quickly sent me a pre-addressed FedEx carton for return of the unit. ... Read more


    3. PalmOne m130 Handheld

    Amazon.com Review

    Palm's m130 enters the handheld market as one of the least expensive color units available. Basically a colorized version of the earlier m125, the m130's bright backlit screen displays 58,621 colors on its 160 x 160 pixel screen.

    It also boasts an 8 MB memory with an expansion slot that accepts both MultiMediaCard (MMC) and Secure Digital (SD) cards for adding both memory and special applications. The SD card slot will also connect to SDIO (Secure Digital Input/Output) devices, including Bluetooth cards for wireless connectivity, and upcoming peripherals like digital cameras and bar code scanners.

    You can also attach peripherals to the base of the unit via the Palm Universal Connector, which enables you to use the m130 with keyboards, modems, and GPS receivers that are also compatible with the i700 and m500 series handhelds.

    The universal connector is where the handheld meets up with its USB cradle, which not only serves to sync up the m130, but to recharge its lithium-ion battery as well. On the highest setting (you can drop it down a notch in well-lit environments), the display backlight sucks juice at a moderate rate. But since the battery recharges at each sync-up, it's not much of an issue. Even if you run out of battery life and your m130 shuts down, you have about a week to recharge it before you lose the data on your Palm.

    Nicely contoured, with an attachable faceplate that flips up (letting you play Captain Kirk and Dr. Spock, if you're so inclined), the 5.4-ounce m130 rests solidly in your left hand with the right manipulating its standard buttons and screen with the stylus. One complaint we did have with the m130: at the edges, the screen doesn't appear to be as sensitive as in the middle and it can sometimes require a repeat tap with the stylus before it registers.

    In addition to the standard Palm Desktop software, the m130's impressive handheld software bundle includes Palm Reader (for taking e-books along with your Palm), DataViz's Documents To Go (for viewing and editing Word and Excel files; Windows users can also view and edit PowerPoint documents), and MGI PhotoSuite Mobile Edition (for viewing images and videos on the full-color screen).

    An IR port on the top of the m130 lets you beam contact information, such as your business card, or even an application, to another similarly equipped handheld.

    An inexpensive color handheld with a decent amount of memory and lots of room for growth, the m130 makes a great PDA for users looking to add color to their portable world. --J. Curtis

    Pros:

    • Inexpensive, full-featured color PDA
    • 58,621-color display looks great
    • Loaded with software extras
    • Rechargeable battery
    Cons:
    • Stylus doesn't register, at times, around the edges

    5-0 out of 5 stars For the newer palm user!
    This is my third pda (second palm and one handspring) and I'm totally satisfied with the product. Palm has leapfrogged over the palm clones or 'wannabees' in features and pre-packaged software. The screen clarity is more than acceptable under most conditions, the rechargeable battery lasts plenty long in normal uses and the 4.1 OS (operating system) has some nice new features. Finally, the expansion ports are great to save files or applications without sacrificing the 8 megs on the handheld palm.

    Especially nice is the new feature note pad, which allows you to simply write or print a note directly on the screen without the need of graffiti or opening the memo pad. This is useful when you need to write quick--like when you're checking your voice mail and recording information. It's just like the sticky notes you use for writing down everything. Only these sticky notes don't get lost! The palm reader is a nice addition to read the increasingly popular e-books. I've added 3 books to the m-130 and the reader works great and even has an auto-scroll so you can read at your own pace. The calculator function(s) is much improved from earlier palms with the business and other math functions.
    Finally the accompanying software, DataVis' Documents To Go for one, let you compose or edit word, excel, or powerpoint files and transfer the files to/from your desktop or laptop.
    Overall, this is a good product, that is very functional and reliable, at a relatively inexpensive price!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good PDA
    This is a pretty good PDA. I was looking for a color PDA to replace my trusty Palm V (still miss that little guy), but the other models and brands were a little too overpriced for my budget. Lo and behold, Palm comes out with the m130 and it was in my price range! I love the color screen and the extra memory and add-on features. At first, I had to contact Palm because I received a defective unit. They replaced it free of charge and it has had no major problems ever since. The m130 comes packaged with a treasure chest of useful software (Documents to Go, Palm Reader and others)! The expansion slot is pretty cool too. The only drawback that I have found is the darned Graffiti writing recognition. Graffiti writes pretty well when it wants to, but I have found that it doesn't always register as the letter you want and tends to do its own thing. I seem to have the most trouble with the letter "y". It comes out as other letters. It can be frustrating and I am sure that Palm users have gotten frustrated with Graffiti. I would recommend investing in the keyboard. Besides all of that, I have been happy with Palm and the m130. These PDA's are truly amazing and useful tools and Palm has really set the standard with their great handhelds. If only the Graffiti were a little better...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Mine died!
    I bought my Palm M130 less than a year ago and it was great. Then one day it wouldn't turn on. I hit the reset button and it was fine for a few months. Then recently it wouldn't turn on again. I tried resetting it in different ways and no luck. Now i have a dead palm and all my phone numbers and calender info are stuck in my work computer! i wouldn't bother buying this product as i am sure it will die on you too :(

    3-0 out of 5 stars Decent PDA with all basic features
    I bought this Palm back in December 2002, and so far it has never let me down. Okay, the PDAs standards have developed a lot, but the basic features of this device remain useful: calendar, address book, and the Docs to go.
    I am now giving thoughts to get an state-of-the-art PDA, but the bad reviews I've read here at Amazon regarding the Tungsten C have make me think about moving to a smartphone, perhaps Sony Eriksson P900...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Does everything I needed!
    I did a lot of research before purchasing my first palm pilot (my m130 for myself as a mother's day gift) and I am so glad I moved from a paper calendar to this. I originally hoped to get a phone and pda in one but to be honest w/a laptop at work and a computer at home w/internet access, I don't need wireless connectivity and I have found that anything with any phone feature gets so ridiculously expensive in addition to wanting you to pay for wireless service in addition to phone... well... I decided the option to add wireless later if I need it does exist on the m130, so I got it and a cell phone separately.

    I have never had any trouble, have had it over a year and I really maximize the calendar and contacts features using outlook at work and transferring everything to my palm daily. I used the documents to go feature frequently before I got a laptop, so that was really handy as a storage unit so I could work on documents between home and work. I have for the most part, given up on taking notes most of the time more because of our work culture, then the pda, when it is appropriate I certainly use the note pad feature the most of the "extras". But for everything I hoped it would do... it has been perfect.

    I did have to get some help from IT at work to get my outlook to synchronize properly w/the palm software, but once it was all set up it has never crashed or done anything wrong for me. There are a lot of people at my office who use this model and say the same. Slowly the whole organization is switching to outlook calendars and this really makes it easier. ... Read more


    4. PalmOne m105 Handheld

    (price subject to change: see help)
    Asin: B000059MSI

    Manufacturer: PalmOne
    Sales Rank: 3973
    Average Customer Review: 3.59 out of 5 stars

    Amazon.com Review

    Palm handhelds have succeeded because they're small and lightweight but hold a surprisingly large amount of personal data. The Palm m105 handheld expands on those essential features by offering an organizer that's smaller and lighter (4.4 ounces) than most others while remaining packed with 8 MB of memory, so it can do much more than just store your calendar or addresses. The m105 is also one of the most comfortable Palm devices we've held--its distinctive curved bottom rests comfortably in the palm.

    Like other Palm devices, the m105 includes an infrared port for beaming data to other handhelds, and it features a high-contrast screen with optional backlighting for low-light situations. At 2 inches square, the screen is slightly smaller than those on most Palm organizers. We noticed the difference since we've been using Palm handhelds for some time, but the m105 retains the same 160-by-160-pixel resolution, so this probably won't be a distraction for most users.

    However, unlike other Palm handhelds, the m100 series includes two special applications. The Clock displays the date and time if you simply push the top scroll button on the front, even when the device is off. (It can also be viewed through a window in the cover.) And with the Note Pad, we could write notes or draw pictures directly on the screen without having to write in Graffiti, Palm's character-recognition language.

    With more memory, the m105 can now hold more software--and Palm has provided a range of possibilities on the accompanying CD-ROM. Palm's Mobile Internet Kit, normally sold separately, is a software collection that allows the m105 to communicate via infrared link with a GSM cellular phone (such as the Nokia 8290). The kit includes MultiMail Pro software for managing e-mail, programs for SMS text messaging and WAP (Wireless Access Protocol) browsing, and software for accessing Web Clipping data over the Palm.net network (the same service used for the wireless Palm VIIx). Also included on the CD-ROM is the AvantGo Web browser and a client for connecting to AOL.

    The Palm m105 includes a HotSync cradle (the m100 handheld shipped with just a cable) for synchronizing data between the handheld and a desktop or laptop computer. Macintosh owners (like ourselves) or anyone wishing to use a USB port on a Windows system will need to purchase the USB serial adapter, though the Mac version of the Palm Desktop software is included in the box.

    We were disappointed to find that the Windows version of Palm Desktop included on the CD-ROM is one generation behind the latest release. However, you can download Palm Desktop 4.0 for free from Palm's Web site, making this only a one-time nuisance. Additionally, the m105 is not flash upgradable, so you won't be able to update to a newer version of the operating system later on (the m105 comes with Palm OS 3.5).

    With the addition of more memory and Internet access software, plus its comfortable, lightweight design, the Palm m105 is an entry-level handheld that doesn't feel like the new kid on the block. --Jeff Carlson

    Pros:

    • Smaller and lighter than most handhelds, fitting comfortably in hand
    • 8 MB memory stores more data
    • Includes Palm Mobile Internet Kit and other software for online access

    Cons:

    • Slightly smaller screen
    • Operating system not upgradable
    • Doesn't ship with latest Palm Desktop software for Windows

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's a good starter PDA...
    I've had my m105 for two years before experiencing loss of data, which is a result of an internal capacitor not holding a charge on the motherboard. So why the five stars then? Because it's a GREAT starter PDA.

    It served my initial purpose--which was eliminate lugging around my bulky Franklin planner. From there, I kept track of various budgets, i.e., weekly expenses and saving for vacations, as well as tracked time I spent writing. I even *wrote* chunks of various novels-in-progress on the m105 with folding keyboard (keyboard sold separately.) I also enjoyed ebooks, which I wasn't interested in reading pre-PDA because I didn't want to read the books at my computer or waste paper printing them out.

    If you're looking for a great starter PDA, or if you're aren't too sure about whether or not a PDA would be of use to you, I HIGHLY recommend the m105. Even the battery situation isn't a problem: I've used rechargeable AAA batteries for my entire two years of use.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money
    I bought a m105 in June 2003. It worked fine for a few months, then I started to lose all my data during battery replacement. Now, it takes me 30 minutes and half my battery power to hotsync after battery changes. There should be a recall from Palm but they are not "man" enough to deal with this problem. If you call them they will charge you $75 to fix this problem.

    2-0 out of 5 stars I wore it out after 4 months of use.
    Plus side: if you want something simple this is the PDA for you.

    Minus side: if you use PDAs as a lifeline as I did, find another model. This model wore out after a few months where I changed the batteries and all I kept getting was the "touch center of target screen" After I called tech support, they wanted me to pay $75 to fix it. I might as well get a new Palm pilot (I got this one as a gift), so I'm shopping for a new one. The only lifesaver was that I saved my files before it went bad!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Nice while it lasts...THEN the wheels fall off.
    Granted...i bought a refurbished unit, and it worked wonderfully for a while, but it WILL develope the dredded 'lose data on battery change' problem. Disappointing. Hot sync before you change, and then after to restore data. I really wish someone would come up with *THE* fix, as i can handle SMT componants, and this spoils an otherwise great little PDA. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fun Design Surprises!
    I've been a Palm Pilot user since they first came out, dutifully upgrading to the newest model every few years. I finally decided that I needed COLOR, so I bought the Sony Clie.

    What I didn't expect was that in addition to getting color, I would wind up with an artfully designed PDA that is much easier to use than the Palm Pilot.

    I love the look of the unit. Its brushed metal portions look so much nicer and richer than the straight plastic of the Pilot, and resist finger prints. It's very thin and light too.

    One of the things I like best about it is the "jog dial" on the side. Using this dial you can quickly flip from screen to screen (especially nice for moving through your appointment book or phone book) using a single hand.

    The backlit screen is much easier to read than my old black and white Pilot (a bonus for these over-40 eyes).

    The best surprise was that the memory stick in my Sony digital camera is compatible with the Clie, so I can move it from my camera to the Clie and show my photos to my friends! I can also use my spare memory sticks from my camera as extra storage for my Clie, moving large applications off the Clie and onto the memory stick.

    The only two negatives are:

    1) Battery life. If you use one of the display-intensive features, like displaying a photo, you might have only 10 minutes of battery use. Playing games, I find I only have about 30 minutes of use. Because the batteries are not replaceable, you must recharge the unit in its cradle or using an AC adapter. Usually this isn't a problem because I just keep it in its cradle at my desk when I'm not using it, but for extended trips it means recharging every night in the hotel room.

    2) The software that comes with it that lets you sync up with Microsoft Outlook to keep a synchronized calendar between your PC and the PDA doesn't transfer over the appointment location field. Since I mostly use the Clie to keep track of all my business meetings, I've been caught by this once or twice. (Running late, coming back from lunch, running to a meeting. But what meeting room is it in? Arghh! Have to go back to my office to look at Outlook on my PC to see.) I've overcome this by manually adding the location to the meeting description when I receive the invitation in Outlook, but you shouldn't have to do this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars MP3's sound great on BLUE memory stick
    This is a great PDA, color screen on the 665 is more vibrant than the 615 that I traded up from. From Mac or PC, simply copy MP3 files to MSAUDIO directory of a BLUE memory stick. Used cheaper Lexar brand works fine... . MP3's sound great, better than on Rio MP3 player. Also, sound from included Sony headphones w/attached volume control have good frequency response, bass and treble. If you are expecting to just pop your memory stick in from your Cybershot digicam, not as seamless, each 2MB pix takes a few seconds to refresh when viewing in PG Pocket, due to file size (smaller the better for Clie). If you want fast viewing you need to convert the DCF file to a PGP file. This may not be a problem with newer 200mhz strongarm Clie, but significant speed improvement in 665 vs. 615 which was pretty s-l-o-w. Also, Palm desktop works with Mac OS X with the Clie, works great. Lastly a few cool shareware programs to get... Palm Acrobat reader, AcidImage, Handyshopper,Kinoma player
    Have fun with your new Clie, get one!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome hanheld
    Awesome palm pilot, great for almost any thing, games, camera, movies. Definetly worth the money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best all around PDA out there
    This has been one of the better electronics purschases I've made. Memory is great, full of features (MP3 audio is great), no stupid thumb keyboard. I've thought of upgrading just because, but despite being two years old, no other PDA on the market is as functional as the T-665C. The only drawback - no way to add a WiFi card. COme on SOny! Build it, and they will come!

    5-0 out of 5 stars awesome PDA/ Entertainment Organizer/ what-have-you
    Great buy. I got it for cheap and use it primarily as a MP3 player, and to read news and ebooks. If you plan to do all that, be ready to shell out another $65-70 bucks for a 256MB Memory stick otherwise it doesn't play MP3s. I didn't buy the obscenely expensive MS Pro (white ones) and I use a freely downloadable ripper (CDex) to rip my music CDs to MP3s. You have to make sure that copyright stuff isn't included in your MP3s b/c they won't play. Some weird Sony thing.
    Build quality is super and its sexy as hell (its a Sony). The bundled audio player is pretty basic though and you can't do anything except turn bass on and off. I have yet to come across a better one, and if I do, I would install it promptly. SonicStage software for your PC is utterly useless, as is the Sony's ATRAC format for song compression (I hope someone from Sony reads this... why? why? why??). Most of the software that comes on the CD are trial versions, but there are plenty of great software (and free too) to download from a bunch of Palm sites. But know that the number of Clie-specific software is much less than Palm (Zire/Tungsten)-specific software.
    The scroll button in the front of the Clie is too small for anyone to use (as you might have gathered from all other reviews), but Sony makes up for it with the very useful jog dial and back button on the side. I find the screen too slick, so I've put a high quality screen protector (highly recommended... but that's 10 bucks more) and can also comfortably use my finger as a stylus over it sometimes. I've heard people complain of battery life. But that is to be expected of a device so thin and light and having a great color display. If you're going on a long trip listening to music, don't use the Clie to read stuff at the same time and u can squeeze out 6 hours on a full charge (use the Hold button). If you don't use the backlight, the battery life between charges, even while playing MP3s, is very respectable.
    I would also recommend getting a hard aluminum case (~$25...ouch) if you're a rough user and plan to bump your Clie on different surfaces. Feel free to contact me with any Clie PEG-T665C questions, at ospexy1@yahoo.com
    Cheers and have a great 2004 ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good product, always back up
    I have had this since it first came out and I have been very happy with it. I use my ipaq for everything now: contacts, schedule patients, music when I workout, email, games, and as an alarm clock. I have it in a wallet case, so it is also my wallet with my ids and credit card. It took awhile to get used to using this instead of pieces of paper and for anyone interested in investing in one should really consider this...it takes time and patience to learn how to use the ipaq in your everyday life. Being in the medical field it has become an invaluable resource for information I need to get my hands on quickly.
    For those who buy this, I give two recommendations:
    1) back up! You can lose much data through freeze ups. It is the nature of the technology and it is going to have some problems now and then.
    2) get an extended warranty program. If you use it alot, like I do, it will probably break within a year. After all it is a small machine with alot of technology and it is bouncing around with you all day long.

    Other than that, enjoy it! It is amazing that we can have all this technology in our hands! I can't wait till they come out with a car starter/door opener options. As I think it about it, it will be the next thing to patient charting. We will just speak into it and it will chart patient information. Maybe it will turn on our house lights, computer, oven, cars,etc. one day.... I look forward to that!

    5-0 out of 5 stars ITS A MUST!!!!
    This was one of the best PDAs that I ever had and I have had more than enough of them. Two Jornadas (54-568)and a Toshiba e740. The Jornadas were really good but they had become outdated. The Toshiba was a good idea with too many problems. Battery life was horrible. The buttons were made for a 4 year old. I recomend it to anyone who wants their PDA to be challenging because that is how I describe the Toshiba. The iPAQ was a message from heaven, figuratively speaking. Its one of the best PDAs that I have had. Battery life is awesome. It works specifically well with Plus! Sync & Go, a program to watch video content offline. It is a good PDA. The screen. Too much to say. WAY too much to say. Go to a demo and look at it yourself. Its beautifull. The bad parts: Case. Should be better. Slots: Needs a CF slot built in. Battery: replaceable like the 5455. The rest is good. The processor is OK. Look at other sites for more info. Pocketnow.com has a great review.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Attractive but abysmally frustrating
    Got this refurbished from Costco. Good screen etc. BUT, the power runs out every time you turn your back on it and there IS NO BACKUP (watch-type) battery. When the power runs out, you LOSE every program you ever installed, and the software walks you through an insultingly stupid nano-tutorial before you can use it again. Stupid design of the decade. Bought a stowaway keyboard for it and whenever the keyboard got near it, the Ipaq got flaky. Tonight the thing died again and I destroyed it (dead, it makes a better work of art than it ever did a PDA). Reason: I had to spend more time and effort reviving it than using it. A great concept with severely crappy reliability.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great and awesome HandHeld PC
    Words cannot even begin to describe this handheld pc. Well, I'm over exagerating a little. If you wanted to get a pocket pc, I suggest you get an Ipaq. It has the most amazing backlight and it's amazingly easy to use. There's hardly nothing that can't be done with it since it can be expanded with different kinds of expansion slots. Buy an Ipaq.

    My main reason for writing this review was to actually thank the merchant that provided me her great service. Since it was too late for me to rate her using rate seller, I'll just rate her service here. I give yong2_wen2 a 5. Although I recieved the incorrect item at first, I was able to return the Ipaq and get the correct model with all shipping paid. yong2_wen2 was very responsive to every email I sent providing me with great customer service.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    This is a great piece of equipment. i would recommend it for any working person with a full schedule. you can use it for anything! i've even used it for sound testing for churches and such. Buy this product! its worth the money! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars I like it
    I've had my m500 for just over a year. Like many others, I replaced my venerable VX with this. It does with everything the Vx did with some nice additions. To be fair, the lack of compatibility between the m500 family of Palms and the Palm V's was disappointing. Clearly, this is a marketing ploy to boost peripheral sales from customers who have upgraded. Back to the m500 itself; I do everything with it. I use it as an organizer, syncing nicely with MS-Outlook. It serves as my ebook reader with the 8MB in memory holding several books, including the entire Bible. I use the Note Pad function to handwrite quick notes or drawings for later reference. I use a Stowaway type keyboard to take notes in drawn out meetings at work or to do personal writing in my free time. I take it everywhere, in a hardshell case, and its proven most durable. The available, yet limited expandability in the removeable card media is convenient should you deal in massive amounts of data. I still haven't exhausted the internal 8MB of memory since I compulsively discard useless data and applications.

    This is a good low frills electronic organizer. It doesn't take up much space. If you want impressive audio and videa on a PDA (egad!) then you would be best served to look elsewhere. If you need a good organizing enhancement, with limited nice-to-haves, this is a good little tool to have.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Mixed bag; one bad one and one good one
    My wife has a palm m500 that she likes, I have a palm m500 that works so inconsistently I am looking for something else. My wife's will not sync with the computer, so I had the computer looked at and tuned up by the computer doctor. That did not help. We received a court document saying we could change out the sync modules, but we had to have the receipt proving we bought the palm. OF course, they had our warranty certification and address, but that was not good enough. Overall, My wife is decently happy with hers, but with all the problems we have had, I would never buy another Palm. Oh, the 90 day warranty is not too great either. I assume that the the Palm people have little trust in their product or they would offer a year warranty. I'm sure the 25 dollars they charge for service after the 90 day warranty is a major profit center for them. After thinking about this some more, I not only won't buy from them, I hope they go out of business.

    1-0 out of 5 stars The worst product EVER
    I received the Palm m500 as a Christmas gift. Within 2 months it wouldn't hot sync. Technical services made me jump through all kinds of hoops to fix it including a regedit on my PC. I'm now dealing with customer service hoping to get some resolution, so far no help. I'm going to go up the chain to every supervisor. I have never in my life had such a bad product with such terrible support. I had the old Palm 3E which never gave me problems. Take my advice - STEER CLEAR. I'll never buy a Palm product again. If I could give it negative stars I would.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Software?
    Looking for some 'cheap' electronic organizers, I came across this one. The floor model was on sale, so it made it a great deal. The software was not included and I wasn't told that I needed software to make it work with my computer. The sales associate made it sound as the Palm would install the needed components on my computer. No where on the box did it mention a CD-ROM to install.

    With this lack of software, this thing is pretty much useless.

    1-0 out of 5 stars I am sick and tired of my Palm m500 not working - do not buy
    I read the reviews here about one and a half years ago to decide whether or not to buy this model - and the reviews were generally positive then so I bought one. However as you can see from the REVIEWS FROM MID 2003 ONWARDS - this is a bad machine - many people have had problems with it. I had the hotsync problem which peole are speaking about - this issue was brought to court in a class action by a lawyer in the US - but Palm refuses to recall this machine. I am also having what they call a digitizer problem - I have called the service line a number of times and now they want me to pay $140-$198 to pay for it to be fixed or to get a "as good as new" replacement - repair could take up to 5 weeks. I have really lost faith in Palm - in my opinion this is a hopeless product - and I beg you to benefit from my loss and do not buy this machine. If you do buy this product buy an extra 5 years of warranty if your store has this option because I believe you will need it. I generally do not go out of my way to post a negative review but this product has got me so frustrated and dissapointed. (I wanted to give this zero stars but Amazon doesn't allow you to do that.) ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars QUALITY-VERSUS-PRICE
    The keypad and clamshell design of this Multimedia PDA from SONY evokes the semblance of a micro-laptop. The machine's wide range of features include: a good built-in digital camera, a 66MHz Dragonball processor, 16MB RAM, 8MB ROM, 3.8" TFT Display,Irda, and an adaptor-embedded USB Docking Cradle.
    Both the Display panel and the swivel-mount which houses the digital camera can be turned to a very wide angle, (upto 270 degrees). As you turn it, the image adjusts automatically so as to yield the best possible screen-view. The listed 320 by 480 pixels Display resolution may seem generous, but in reality, 320 by 320 is all that may be at your disposal (at any given time). This is because the PDA's Palm OS 4.1 allows the virtual Graffiti pad to utilize the remainder.
    I was disappointed to find out that there is no way images from the digital camera can be transferred directly into my PC's hard-disk. Users must first of all move them into the Memory Stick before passing them onto the hard-drive. Another sad thing is that my fully charged battery asks for a recharge just after six days of normal use, which is a far cry from the ten days SONY quoted.
    In conclusion, I will say that this "SONY CLIE PEG-NR70V" is a good PDA. It has a vareity of features. But, I was disappointed that some of the claims SONY made concerning it were false. Having seen both the assets and the liabilities of this PDA, I just felt that I paid a little too much for it. More often than not, SONY produces good items, but they seem to always price them out of proportion.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great PDA...but
    I was strickly a Palm guy until I saw the Sony Clie. I've owned both the Palm Vx and m505. Of course I moved to the m505 because it had colour. The colour wasn't impressive, but it was a plus compared to the Vx. I switched teams and became a Sony guy after seeing the Clie on the web. I'm somewhat of a gadget guy, so the camera feature was an added plus (in a PDA) for me. I have to admit, the colour on the Clie blows the socks off of the Palm. The screen of the Clie is sooo much clearer, the processor is faster (this is really highlihgted when viewing pictures), this is generally a great PDA, but...I do have couple of small points to mention on the negative side. Although the camera is a neat feature, the quality of the picture isn't that great (but I think Sony has a new generation of PDA/camera coming out soon), the stylus is too thin, and on a few occasions my memory stick is not recognized by my Clie, and I've had to fiddle with it to get it to work. What I've found is that if the memory stick is left out of the expansion slot for a little while and then re-inserted it will function correctly, then. But, with that said, I still think you get great value for your money with the Sony Clie PEG-NR70v/U.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This PDA Is Excellent
    I just bought this PDA and it is everything I could hope for. Sony struck a pot of gold with this one. Get a memory card (128 mb maybe) and you have enough memory for thousands of applications. I had trouble with Sonic Stage, but I am assuming I can figure it out. The camera works great. The keyboard is not good with numbers, but you can use the on screen one for that. If you have any further questions e-mail me at ryanj0@belleville.k12.wi.us

    5-0 out of 5 stars Super PDA for the Price
    My wife bought this for me and I love it! The previous PDAs I have owned were not nearly as high tech. I certainly could not say more about the wonderful camera features than the other reviewer. As for all the other features all I can say is they work great. I have had mine about six months now and I have used them all and I have not had any problems. I mainly use it for my DVD and CD databases and games, but all the capabilities are amazing. I also highly recommend getting the Belkin USB Sync/Charge cable. It sure beats using a Sync/Charge Cradle since it is easy to carry anywhere.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ahead of its time.....
    Back when this Clie came out, it was the first with integrated keyboard and a built-in digital camera. Two years later, it is still ahead of many handheld devices! One neat feature: remote controller! MP3 player is another nice feature, so check out the used Clie's. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars As Good as Wireless Gets....For Now
    As a blackberry user for over a year and a half and a hard-core Palm junkie, I was eager to have a shot at carrying an all-in-one device rather than two devices which don't talk to each other. Plus, for the same price, the Palm.net service offers more (web clipping and web browsing without usage quota) than just always-on email.

    I have been very pleased with the device itself in the month plus I've used it. It has the merely adequate grayscale palm display we're all used to by now, but rewards you with phenomenal battery life (20 minutes on the cradle a day keep it charged, even with wireless usage) and an eminently light and pocketable form factor. It is really quite amazing what they fit into such a slim little package, with an SD/MMC slot to boot!

    If you haven't used a wireless device like a blackberry, you really don't know what you're missing. Instead of having to take time out of your routine to check your email a dozen times to see if an important message came through, you just go about your business until you either get beeped, buzzed, or flashed (your choice of nothing or any combo of the three). During a heated game of scrabble, just fire up the 705 with the Merriam Webster PQA (a sort of web shortcut to their site which avoids slow graphics/ads....see palm.com for details) and use their dictionary, which is far larger than what will fit on any PDA, to solve the dispute. Wondering what the population of Brazil is? Go to brittanica.com with their PQA and have the answer in 30 seconds. It makes firing a computer up seem like a waste of time.

    The main shortcomings of the device center around the screen, but the battery life vs. full-time sidelit screen (like the Clie 760c) debate has been beaten to death. But the bottom line is that until the battery and screen technology progresses further (the organic LEDs, perhaps?), you're not going to have a wireless PDA and a dynamite screen in this kind of form factor. And I really don't think that I could go back to a Clie after getting used to full-time wireless access.

    The other issue is that of the network the device uses. While the Mobitex network doesn't set any speed records, it is a) fairly responsive, b) rock-solid reliable (Sept. 11 didn't cause so much of a hiccough in the NYC area network), c) has better coverage than GPRS or 3G will have for quite a while to come. And since Voicestream's throughput-based data fees are not attractive (what's the fun of a wireless toy if you've got to watch the clock?) to the average user, Mobitex wins in my mind.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Excellent piece of engineering, so so service, though
    This is a great PDA! Elegant design, fast, practical, the best among all models before Tungsten. The best value for your money, as well. I used to have a Palm VIIx, another great PDA, but I decided to switch to this model mostly because of the, supposedly better, wireless capabilities (internet access, even Google!), AOL instant messenger, e-mail, etc., the amazing Documents To Go program, and also for the fabulous expansion card with the Merriam-Webster dictionary! I have only two (major) complaints: the wireless service is TOO expensive and the MultiMail 1.2 e-mail program takes longer than with the Palm VIIx, let alone it gobbles very quickly your monthly allotment of 100K. In less than a month, just using e-mail, it has already used up 163K! And to think that with my Palm VIIx, I barely used 40K each month... If the wireless service were less expensive and more efficient (there is a number of error messages each time) this Palm would be, hands down, the best of all. I will continue to enjoy my Palm i705 minus the wireless capabilities. I don't want to talk about the old fashioned, low-resolution screen, practically the same that came with the original Palm Pilot. The Casio Clié, if not for the lack of wireless functions, beats easily this model. And this is said by a seasoned Palm fan.

    2-0 out of 5 stars shoddy
    I suppose this might be a cool device if it actually functioned properly. Almost from the second I unwrapped it there were problems - it freezes every other day. I don't know how much data I've lost cumulatively. I don't even want a replacement, I want a different model. I'll even take a "lesser" model. If Palm support fails me (which I hear is likely) I'm going back to handspring.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WHAT'S A LAPTOP?
    As a New York Criminal and Divorce attorney, I swear the 1-705 is
    guilty of being the best friend you can have out there in the field. The ability to read Excel & Word docs is a godsend, and between the power to remote access the internet, and the freebie downloads available for a palm, who needs a laptop? This beauty and a cell phone, and you've got all the equipment you need to be a successful road warrior. You are hereby summoned to appear with your i-705 and run your business on the run.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Inferior
    I received the i705 for Christmas. I have had nothing but trouble with the product. The Infrared radio didn't work. I tried for several weeks! The absolute worst part , however, was Palm's customer service. If you think they are out there to help you, you are wrong. They agreed (after several phone calls), to replace the unit. This was a new unit that they finally agreed to replace. After reading the fine print, I realized they were going to send me a reconditioned unit, and by now, there are better products on the market. Curiously enough, the unit still hasn't arrived. Additionally, you need to sign up for their service, which is pricey. If I have to have a reconditoned unit, I may as well have the top of the line reconditioned PDA. The price on this unit has come down considerably, I guess there is a reason. Oh, and the customer service department may be suffering from post Christmas stress, as they were a bit touchy, to say the least. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works for me
    I was surprised to see this product getting such a low overall rating. I'm not surprised that there were some individual low and high reviewers, since this type of screen protector can't be all things to all people, and people having widely varying taste. But I absolutely loved these screen protectors. I'm one of those people who keeps the temporary plastic shield on that comes with the product forever -- I can't stand having scratches on glass or plastic. My previous Palm was a hand-me-down and was scratched very soon; when I got my m515, I left the original packaging's screen protector on for a few weeks until I could afford the WriteRight. And I'm glad I spent the few extra dollars.

    I found the protectors easy to apply (much easier than the type that you have to slide under the edges of the screen), and adjust as necessary. The slight adhesive does not leave a residue and keeps the WriteRight from sliding around as do the types that slip under the edges of the screen. There is a minimal difference in feeling when writing on the screen; I got used to it very quickly and found it to be well worth the trade-off to avoid permanent damage to the silkscreen. It took me two tries to apply the first WriteRight correctly, but it was simple to learn and I can do it now quickly without any bubbles or crookedness.

    They're a little pricey but worth it if you value an unscratched screen (believe me, that is a nightmare). They seem to last long enough to even further justify the small cost. Highly recommended.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Beats NuShield
    I saw the rave reviews for NuShield and ordered them instead. Frankly, I'm disappointed. The NuShields arrived quickly, but were heavily spotted and very cloudy. The first one I installed was scratched too much to be useable within an hour. Considering the NuShields are five bucks per sheet, I was severely disappointed. I've used Fellowes sheets on two different types of Palms (Vx and Tungsten T) and although they're not crystal clear, they hold up and do what they say they will do -- protect the screen and remain read-through-able. Also, they don't glare in high light (NuShields do this even in minimal light) and the Fellowes don't reduce the apparant light from the handheld itself (the NuShields cut the apparent light by a good 50%). I'll be sticking with the Fellowes in the future.

    1-0 out of 5 stars A waste of money.
    These are a joke. They are soft and make the stylus drag IF you can get the thing lined up right on the screen. I threw them away after 10 minutes of struggle.

    I waxed my screen. That's right WAXED IT! I had a bottle of ArmorAll Fast Wax handy. That is liquid, squirt it on car wax. I used a little dap and rubbed it in. I works GREAT! The screen is slippery and smooth as silk. It seems to repel finger prints and dust and wipes clean very easy. And it is cheap!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Does the job
    I've used the fellowes WriteRights on several items, including watches, PDA's, Walkman, and cell phones. I'd definately recommend them if you are prone to banging up the faces on screens. Just make sure your screen is clean before you apply the film. I usually get about 6 months of use out of the PDA before I need to replace. Best to use right after you purchase your item. As for the people that are dissatisfied, I don't get it. I'm happy with them.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lasts a VERY LONG TIME! Keeps screen like new!
    I hardly ever write these, but when I see a favorite product with such a low score, I must speak up! I've had these for well over a year and have only used THREE films. I can't even remember when I put the last one on my m505, and it's still in one piece and clear; it still doesn't need to be replaced. The last time I looked at it (without the film), my screen still looked brand new, though it's now 2 years old. At the rate I'm going, I'll probably replace my PDA before I need another package of the WriteRight. I highly recommend this product. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Piece of junk!
    This would be a nifty little contraption if it wasn't for the fact that you can't change the top -- my primary impetus for buying it.

    I have a Handspring Visor and lost my stylus. I didn't want to pay for shipping on a new stylus 3-pack from Handspring, so I went to Best Buy and purchased this instead. Not only can you not change the top so that it fits in the Visor properly, but now the entire headpiece falls out constantly so that the bottom part of the stylus gets stuck in the stylus-holder. Oh, and did I mention that the light function only works part of the time?

    Not worth your time or effort.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Okay
    It works and does what its supposed to But,I CAN'T get the top off to change the size for different pda's Help

    4-0 out of 5 stars What a great idea!
    For years, I've seen combination pens with lights, but this lighted stylus is just the ticket for using your PDA in the dark, especially on Palm models with an unlit Graffiti panel.

    The Light Stylus comes with four interchangeable tops to fit a wide variety of PalmOS PDAs (the one I bought doesn't claim to fit PocketPC models.) One of them was a near-perfect match for my Palm i705 stylus, and in fact fit even better than the factory stylus in that it isn't as tight a fit. I did have some difficulty switching the top - there are no instructions - but a firm pull does the trick. There's even a reset pin under the top!

    The light is yellow and reasonably bright - good enough for use in the dark, though it's no flashlight. As a general-use stylus, it works well - the translucent plastic tip has a good writing feel. The only issue I have, and this is minor, is that sometimes you have to play with the rotation of the top to get the light to stay on, or off. Once you find the right position, though, it stays.

    Inexpensive enough to be an impulse-buy (as it was for me), the Saitek Light Stylus is a great idea at a great price. I recommend it to all Palm PDA users. ... Read more

    This item works great! It is very durable and is a lot thinner than it looks, but still protects as well as you'd expect.
    Great for carrying inside a purse that has items such as keys that could ding up a PDA.
    It even fits around my Sony NR-70, which is long. In fact it's perfect for the flip screen that my NR-70 has.
    I'd recommend it to anyone who has a larger-sized PDA that is looking for a secure way to keep their PDA safe.

    3-0 out of 5 stars the organizer is good, but the case doesn't hold up
    I'd been looking at this organizer in stores for a long time, and finally decided to buy it the other day. I'd bought a Royal DM3070 checkbook sized organizer a while back that I used a lot. But it was geeting old. So I bought this new organizer. I pressed RESET to initialize it, and nothing. I pressed everything, but nothing. Finally, I changed out the batteries that came inside it and put in the spare batteries included (which were a different brand) and it finally worked. At first, I didn't think I could use the touch pad, but I've gotten used to it. I then programmed about 1/2 of my data into it. So then, I thought I'd try the PC sync software. The Organizer Link program is a 16-bit program. But I synchronized my data, and all but 2 contacts showed up. But that wouldn't work for me. So I uninstalled Organizer Link. Afterwards, I entered the other half of my data into my organizer. Later, I tried Companion Link with Schedule+ 7.0a. It only synced the last half of contacts, and didn't do anything but contacts. Furthermore, on the organizer, it duplicated the last half of data. So I uninstalled CL too. I'll just use my new organizer the way I used the other one, no pc sync. But I like the Excelsior OS pretty well, and I love two new features: Calendar & Calculator (this one keeps the stored number through a power off, which the old one didn't do.) So the organizer: **** (take off 1/2 for the touch screen and 1/2 for the "new problem" below); the PC Sync software: :-P But now, I have a new problem. After 3 weeks, the case is marred very badly, and I haven't abused it at all. So my organizer looks horrible, but it still works OK. I only recommend this product to somebody who wants a useful organizer that doesn't care about looks.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great PDO, but battery installation is tricky!
    This is a great PDA/PDO for the price, especially the newer model with 768k. With both items, however, installing the batteries is tricky. The instruction booklet is wrong. There is NO screw to loosen. You have to use something with a small pointed tip to pry open the battery door just above the 2 wavy lines representing finger impressions. While I'm glad that the door is a very snug fit, I nearly returned the item to the seller because I, like other buyers, did not think I would ever figure out how to install the darn batteries!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Unable to install batteries
    The instruction says to remove the "one" screw on the back holding batteries. There's no one screw, there are two screws holding the case together, and a hole to "reset" this unit, but, No battery cover or single screw.
    What gives?

    3-0 out of 5 stars Cheap and Good ...
    This PDA (or i say PDO) is a cheap alternative from the hi-tech PDA's also it has pros and cons.

    Pros:
    -Cheap
    -Easy to operate
    -Easy to sync
    -Form factor
    -Good Battery Life

    Cons:
    -The backlight hums and not that bright
    -The included games are [boring]
    -Very sensitive screen
    -A bit overweight

    I gave it 3 out of 5.

    3-0 out of 5 stars OK, SO ITS SIMPLE...
    Personally, the little organizer does me just fine:O)That's all it really is...no better than a childs "dear electric diary." For those that have needs beyond a calender, scheduler, and phone book...DON'T BUY IT! By the way... what did ya expect for around $20 bucks???????? ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars snap broke...good until then
    I like the features of this case and it did well as a slimed-down wallet/pda combo. However, the neoprene material doesn't slide in and out of pockets very easily. Also, the male end of the snap broke off after 1 month, as it is attached to the neoprene which stretches...not very well designed..buy something else, imo...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works flawlessly everyday for a two weeks already
    I haven't experienced any of the problems others have written. I find it easy to position my Palm on the cradle. I have the original unit hooked up to my computer at home and bought this USB cradle for use at work and it's been working like a charm for 2 weeks. I hot-sync my Palm M515 throughout the day and carry it with me from meeting to meeting -- this cradle hasn't failed me yet.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Fussy- poor design
    The cradle is very finicky. The fit is not very tight and I have to press down on the top of the palm pilot to ensure the contacts are touching. Plus, it has it's own power plug AND the USB connection. I'd recommend the USB cable instead. It connects snugly, easily and is only one thing to plug in, plus very reliable long term. Charges fast too. This cradle just fell short all the way around.

    1-0 out of 5 stars cradle not compatible with tungsten !!!!
    The fact the cradle was listed as compatible, but was not was a great disapointment for me. I shop at amazon often and have had good results till now. Maybe it would be better to go a retail store to purchase these types items.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Not compatible with Tungsten E!
    I can't comment on the quality of the cradle but I have one comment. I ordered the cradle as it was listed as an accessory for the Tungsten E. However, it does not fit into the cradle and Palm doesn't seem to currently produce one compatible with it. Just want to warn others so you don't have the hassle of having to send it back.

    4-0 out of 5 stars No problems--works as advertised
    I bought this extra cradle for my M515 to have at the office. It works just as I needed it too--no problems at all. I needed to sync with both home and office computers, not just a charging cradle. The only downside it that I have to continually take the PDA out of it's protective carry case to put it in the cradle--at home and office. It sure would be great if there was a cord that could hook up to it without removal. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars If you have a cradle, you will need this.
    If you want to use a docking cradle you will have to use the power cable that came with the TJ-25 as the cradle does not have power.

    If you move around a great deal, then you will need another cable unless you can remember to take the power cable with you.

    It does what it is supposed to do but do look at the plug as it looks funny as it is not the same size as the adapter. Just look towards the side and you will see where it needs to go.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Nice accessory to have if you need to re-charge often
    Useful device to charge my sony clie without the bulky cradle. The cable leading to the interface connector is a bit off-center because the other slot is for the USB cable (not included). This missing component is the USB Hotsync cable, available separately as the PEGA-HS10. I guess one needs to buy several accessories if you want both charge and hotsync while mobile.
    The other aspect I like about the portable charger is its capability to be plugged in to any voltage/frequency 100-240V, 50/60Hz.
    As I use my clie a lot, with the background light on, my battery does not last me through the long day. This is the reason I bought this portable charger. ... Read more
