Amazon.com Review

Hewlett Packard's 560 line of Jornada PDAs includes the 32 MB Jornada 565 and our 64 MB 568, members for the first batch of Pocket PCs to ship with Microsoft's new Pocket PC 2002 operating system.

On the surface, the Pocket PC 2002 OS looks much the same as the old OS. But there are a variety of enhancements to the stable of applications (like Word and Excel), new software such as MSN Messenger, added security and antivirus protection, and improved handwriting recognition.

The Jornada 568 features a CompactFlash Type 1 slot, so you can add more CF memory as well as hook up CF peripherals, such as modems or network cards. You'll probably want to expand on the memory front--64 MB is decent for a Pocket PC, but you always want more to play back any video or audio files. And CompactFlash memory prices have plummeted in recent months, making it an affordable upgrade.

The well-designed Jornada 568 sits nicely in hand, with a sturdy flip-up cover adding little to the overall weight (6.1 ounces without the cover and 7.0 with). The bright, 16-bit color TFT screen can be easily read from even sharp angles. While the 240 x 320 pixel, 3.5-inch diagonal screen isn't as large as some, it's big enough to keep you from squinting, even while reading books with Microsoft Reader.

Hooking the Jornada 568 up to your PC is handled either through the USB cradle (with a pass-through connector for the AC power adapter) or via infrared. In addition to the ActiveSync 3.5 software, HP includes Outlook 2002, Audible Player 2.0 for playing audio books, and MusicMatch for ripping and playing digital audio files. In addition to syncing up with Outlook files and directories, the Pocket PC versions of Word, Excel, and Media Player enable you to transfer almost any of your desktop files to the 568.

Powered by a 206 MHz StrongARM processor, the Jornada 568 can handle extensive multitasking without any slowdown. The bottom of the PDA offers four buttons for quick access to menus and applications--Home, Contacts, Calendar, and Tasks--as well as a four-direction navigation pad and scroll buttons on the side panel.

The Jornada 568 also functions as a voice recorder--just press the red button on the side and talk away--with a built-in microphone and speaker. But the speaker, while adequate for the normal beeps and burps of the OS, isn't great for music playback. You'll want to connect some headphones to the Jornada and, unfortunately, HP doesn't include any.

The rechargeable battery for the Jornada 568 promises up to 14 hours of life and we were able to get right around that. It also features a light at its top that glows green when the PDA is fully charged, and also flashes to alert you to appointments.

With its power, expandability, and the new Pocket PC 2002 operating system, the Jornada 568 makes an excellent all-around workhorse palmtop. --J. Curtis

Pros:

  • Easy transfer of Word and Excel files and synchronization with Outlook
  • CompactFlash Type 1 expandability
  • Crisp, colorful display
  • Sleek design
Cons:
  • Speaker not adequate for playing back music
  • No headphones

1-0 out of 5 stars Too expensive & didn't work fine
I experienced lots of trouble with this item, windows didn't work right, and when I found out how to manage my sychronization it was too late, I had lost all my data. I spent over 1,000 USD in the pocket PC and accesories and after 6 months finally trew it in the trash can, since the connection port had broken without doing nothing. It was my first Pocket PC after trying all Palm models and devices, and finally went back to Palm with Zire 71, which I recommend a lot better. Palm OS is more stable, never breaks dowm, and allways reliable.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice PDA
This is a great PDA. It runs Windows 2002 Pocket PC Edition very well. I can play MP3's, use Pocket Word, and synchronize with Microsoft Outlook without a problem.

The only reason I gave it 4 out of 5 stars is that the screen scratches amazingly easy. I always keep the thing in a soft case, and it's already scratched up pretty good. I have no idea how these little blemishes got there, but it is very annoying when the light is just right and they stand out.

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible
This is a wonderful machine.It is compact and efficient.It is compatible with several database software products allowing for easy, on the road access to all types of information.It holds 1000 pages of text per MB of memory which makes travelling a breeze.No longer do I need an extra briefcase for my books.Currently, with just a 128 MB compact flash card as an accessory, I have 7 books, 13 audible.com audible books, multiple pictures as well as all my MS Outlook contact addresses, phone numbers, email addresses.Further, I can download and respond to my email from this little pocket-size phenom.It has never, never failed me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Transformed my life
I used to carry a laptop and a Franklin planner almost everywhere. Now, my Jornada and the Targus keyboard are all I usually need, unless I'm doing a presentation to a client. The Pocket PC is a marvel of convenience. Here are common things I do on my HP Jornada:
* All MS Outlook related activities (appointments, tasks, meeting notes, and contacts)
* MS Pocket Money: I get a receipt, and I enter it before I leave the location. No more piles of receipts to process at the end of the month so that I can reconcile my accounts.
* Pocket Word: keep my personal journal, jot down notes, write business documents, etc. The formatting isn't anywhere near as powerful as the desktop version of Word, but it won't take too many more features for this to be a highly functional word processor.
* Pocket Excel: Track mileage. Pocket Excel is a very basic spreadsheet, but it does a great job for simple spreadsheets. I expect future versions will be better.
* Download web pages for viewing: Using AvantGo, I routinely download the Economist, New York Times, CNN, and many other sites. And if I travel, I can download restaurant and entertainment info for the city I go to.
* Track billable hours: Using a great FREEWARE program for Pocket PC, I can track billable hours for clients, projects, and even activities associated with projects.
* Brainstorm: I use a mind-mapping Pocket PC program to brainstorm and develop mindmaps and preliminary project plans for myself and with clients.

* Listen to music: A 64MB flash card can hold a decent amount of MP3 files!
* Show off my new daughter: I have a digital camera, so I can transfer images of my daughter to my Jornada to show pictures to my friends and associates.

Additionally, with a Pocket PC, you can do many other things that I don't yet use the Jornada for, including edit and view PowerPoint files, edit databases, edit html files, edit images, send and receive emails, view live Internet, and watch mpeg movies. Great!

The screen on the 568 is much improved from earlier Jornadas, too.Not as much glare in sunlight.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Value and Impressive Features
I bought the Ebookman 901 without knowing anything about it, and I have been very pleasantly surprised at how versatile it is. Just add a 128 MB MMC card (which are now pretty reasonable on E-bay) and you can have 2 hours of music to go! I have another 64 MB MMC card in it on which I have all the books I have downloaded. A 64 MB card will hold almost 100 regular books! The MobiPocket Reader is great for casual reading, and the Franklin Reader has all the navigation features to make it great for references. I can read any book in HTML or TXT format, and there are thousands for free on the web. The Ebookman also has some nice accessories like a car stereo adaptor and an AC adaptor for home use. The PDA functions like Address Book and Memo Book and Date Book are very handy. There are some really fun games. I take this unit when I am traveling, and am never bored. I think if you read the manual and learn how to use it properly, you will love this device. And now you can find them on E-bay and Heartland America for less than 50 bucks. WOW!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great deal for the money!
I've read other reviews for this product that have people complaining about losing their data when the batteries are changed. THIS IS NOT TRUE if you're carefull.First of all, my ebookman came with a bright blue warning flier stating that your ebookman needs to be turned OFF when you change the batteries.Pretty simple, huh?Also, don't wait for your battery to completely die before you change it. The main menu screen has a battery meter in the bottom right hand corner, and I just switch out the batteries when the meter reaches 10%.I primarily use my ebookman to read ebooks and I love it!

1-0 out of 5 stars Data clears with battery change
Each time you replace the battery you have to reload all of your data.Don't waste your money on this one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good for the price.
I bought it on clearance ...So far I love it.The screen is decent, could be better, but it is backlit for night use.I found a good version of the KJ bible, some other free books from the franklin site.I also found a nice little editor to create text files, a solitare game and a Majongg game. I even found a site that had an interpeter for the old infocom games.For what I want an EBook reader and simple PDA features (address book, Memos and calendar) it works great.Also the text editor I downloaded is nice. I do some freelance writing on the side and it's nice to be able to use the editor to take some notes, then pull those over to the PC and use them.I also found a Linux Synch program so it can be used on that OS as well.I was trying to stay in a budget, but if you can afford it I would recomend the 911 with 16 meg.The 901 is decent I have everything on it (I did delete the stalagmite game that came on it) plus a KJ bible both testaments, Tapwrite, Solitare, Majongg, Princess of Mars (ebook) and 6 or 7 text files I created myself. I have 1268K free. Both readers have thier good and bad points.Good thing is you can find e-books for both.'Princess of Mars' is in Mobi format (Which can also read Palm Doc) and the bible is in Franklin.One nice thing about the Franklin reader is that you can tell it to use Landscape so you have wider screen to use for reading.The screen is bigger than your low end Palm Zires.For the money It can't be beat.I am going to get a card for it so I can move the books and some of the apps and free upmemory, but even with 8 meg it handles all my basic needs.I haven't tried the audible books or MP3 player options, but I really did'nt buy it for that.The bonus pack is nice It has a cradle, 3 spare stylus a power adapter and other various things.For ... the original price, you MIGHT be better off with a 16 meg Zire, but if you can get it on sale it's more than worth the money.

One thing to be aware of is that when you change the batteries you need to have it connected to a PC or the AC adaptor, because there is no backup battery. If it is not connected to a powered device you will loose everything in memory once you take the
batteries out.I have been getting almost 2 weeks on a pair of batteries, depending on use.

1-0 out of 5 stars educational tool
Cheap but good as an educational tool for learning about palms.I bought a display model for 40 bucks.The device allows you to experience all of the limitations a palm has to offer without spending a fortune.You get to hone your skills at finding elusive free online books, manipulating doc formats, goof with sync issues, toy with stylus menus, and experiment with unusual mini programs.There is some neat software that has been written for this little guy (bible, pic capture, classic book category setup,etc.) and it is fun fooling with it.Screen is big but makes for a poor contrast in reading attempts, accessory kit is nicely adequate, and the batteries are common but lacking.MMC the store guy sold me for the pseudo-palm wouldnt work in it but hey no worries it works for my camera right. MP3 player, unless you can get a card that fits- forget it, memory is mini.Franklin had a great idea but kinda bombed on the delivery.As a productivity tool, I would rank this one as a big nil.However, if you want an educational Saturday afternoon project (you know, for when you finally get that dual boot linux\ winxp on a mac project outa the way) then this little monster is forty bucks you wont mind parting with. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Great product, horrible company.
I am divided over this thing called "Sony".

First off, the PEGS320 is great and everything I want.It suits my needs perfectly.After 4+ years the batter still works fine, the hardware is working, and it still functions.I like how it looks and the size.The different programs work perfectly, and the only base software problem I have is a crash with Windows XP when giant amounts of information are Hotsynced.Windows XP isn't support by the Sony Clie PEGS320 software, though.

But I have a problem with Sony.And a warning about Sony's Customer Support.If you are wanting to get something that is expensive and you want Customer Support, DO NOT GO WITH SONY.Sony is a headache when it comes to this.I'll explain why.

My Sony Clie handheld lasted me a while until the screen broke.I then contacted Sony about it.Sony said that the screen can be replaced for $200 dollars - yes, that is the cost of the handheld at the time.I got it down to $100 dollars, but still, the screen can't be worth half the cost of the handheld.Nevertheless, I sent it in.It then takes two months for it to ship out, get fixed, and arrive back at my house.But Sony did not leave it at that.The handheld returned minus a screw.But it has stayed togther with just the four of five it has.

I do like the handheld, Sony comes out with nice products, but the Customer Support ruins the balance.If they had good Customer Support I believe they would be much better off.From using and working with my Dell computer, Dell has the bestCustomer Support I've ever seen.Go with them if you want that assurance.

Sony is not friendly for the long-term committed type.If you buy it, plan _very_ hard not to break it. =)

5-0 out of 5 stars Provided faithful service for over 2 years now!
This is a super PDA.I've been using mine now for over 2 years and have had no problems whatsoever.I want to upgrade to a color version with more memory now, but I'm afraid I won't find one that is as reliable and robust as this Clie.

5-0 out of 5 stars Super Little PDA - fits perfect in my pocket
This is a great little PDA - the nice thing is that it's very slim and the battery lasts forever.The screen is very easy to view and I love the backlit greenish-effect - it makes it so easy to read in limited light situations.

I've had mine for 2 years and this thing takes a beating and keeps on going.I've dropped it several times and it's had no effect upon it.Great job, Sony!

If you're concerned about hot sync with Windows NT, 2000 or XP, it WILL WORK FINE, contrary to what others have posted.All you have to do is make sure you install the software using an Administrative account, rather than a limited account.Simple solution.

3-0 out of 5 stars My First PDA, but now I can pick a better one!
I was a firm believer in writing things down on paper - My dayrunner was always with me and worked well for me for many years... I took the step a fewyears ago to a PDA, my husband bought it for me for xmas, and it was amazing how much i learned to rely on it and use it!

Excellent way to keep track of addresses, phone numbers, and organize your busy schedule (both professional and personal).

Unfortunately, there are some drawbacks to this unit that I would like to share with you, and when i get a new one (I think this xmas i'll be upgrading!) I will know what is important to me in a PDA --

No backlight, this is annoying when you can not see your screen in a car or somewhere else, a backlight would be great.

Not compatible with my MAC - i have a PC at home, but atwork we are on MACs, and i can not synchronize my schedule electronically at work, nor can I hotsync at work.

When your battery runs out, all of your information is lost, forever! This was a shocker! I had hotsynched a few months ago, so i was able to reload my old, out of date information back to my clie, but it was pretty awful, since all of the new appointments were not in the PDA, nor were updated phone numbers and addresses.

The buttons get pressed when it is in my purse, since the stick up slightly, they get pressed when in my purse, and then it runs the battery down.

It locks up - i would say it will freeze up and lock up about once every 2 months. that is frustrating and has no apparent reason for doing this.

I try to charge the battery every few days, so that helps with the memory loss.

I have found I really do enjoy having all of my information at my fingertips at all times, and this helps me manage my many meetings and events at work and home - and now that i know i will actually use and enjoy this device, it is time to upgrade to color, backlit display and MAC compatible software! I'm looking at the Zire 71 (it has a digital camera!).

3-0 out of 5 stars Sony Clie volatile memory
I purchased a Sony PEG S360 approximately two months ago.I chose this model because it was highly rated in comparative reviews of PDA's.A major drawback of this product is that ALL information on the memory card becomes lost if the battery completely loses a charge for an extended period of time. I learned this through personal experience but fortunately I had backed up my information on the computer. My old PalmPilot did not have this problem. I probably would not have bought the Clie if I knew that it was so easy to lose information. ... Read more

I recently purchased this PPc.It was the first one I had purchased and found it very easy to use.I used it mostly for taking notes, and keep an organized schedule after I purchased the Targus Universal Keyboard, which works very well with the e355.I was impressed with the battery life on medium settings which gave about 3-4 hours of battery life.

Hopefully this review will give a student a little insight into this "student" view of this.

4-0 out of 5 stars A pda to have
I am a high school teacher. I wanted something to take notes on and to remind me when homework was due. I searched far and wide reading review after review. I got alot more than that with the e355. I have been using it for about 3.5 months now.
I'll just list the Pros and Cons becasue i could go on all day!

Pros:
1. Great speed.
2. Works right out of the box.
3. Excellent battery life (3.5 to 4hrs continuous running)
4. Crisp display. (especially for video playback)
5. Smooth buttons that feel pretty nice on your fingers.
6. Good price for the quality you get
7. The speakers on this player play audio in the best way i have heard for a small speaker unit. You would not believe that a pda could do so well with sound. It plays my mp3s, wma, anything and don't forget the videos.
8. It has a SD card slot so you can expand the memory at any time. the SD card slot has a dummy card that protects it from being damaged by dust or other particles.
9. Quick charge time. Good size storage built in, 64mb.
10. Windows Mobile 2003 is much much much more stable than its predeccessor.
11. It's much much much thinner than many other pda's i have reviewed.
12. It's much more resiliant to 'falls to the floor' than the Dell or Ipaqs for example. I'm a teacher. I can guarantee you...running around the class will lead to a fall on the ground. It has a metallic covering. (no shaking inside!)

Cons.
1. Sometimes if you use up close to 90% of the memory, it stalls.
2. The 'record audio' button is placed near the top so sometimes taking it out you may mistakedly begin recording. (this can be disabled though so it is not really a con)
3. It does not include the ability to 'go wireless' for internet. You can still access the internet though but you need to be connected to your computer. I did not need wireless internet just yet. When it does become ubiquitous...maybe then i'll go for something else.
4. The battery is not removeable. By the time this actually becomes a problem I'll be getting a new pda..about 2 to 3 years from now.

THis is an excellent PDA is you do not need wireless internet access right away.
I would recommend it with all authority people out there.

5-0 out of 5 stars good pocket pc
I dont know whats going on with amazon.com because I bought this pocket pc a month ago here for 165 dollars and now it costs more than two hundred.Anyways its a great pocket pc with 32 mb storage capacity, runs all the latest games fine (www.handango.com or www.pocketgear.com).My only complaint is that I have no clue whats going on with the battery on this thing. If i charge it and leave it alone for one week the battery drops to zero.

1-0 out of 5 stars Faulty At Best
(1) It stops working if you live in a cold climate such as Vermont or Minnesoda.
(2) Sometimes it stops working for no reason.
(3) I've owned mine for less than a year and used it very gently; the screen no longer responds to teh stylus
(4) I bought it at an anon. major electronics/computer store in Manhatten. I've tried to take it back under warentee four times without any sucess, and the clerks tell me it's just "acting finicky" and to "wait it out"

1-0 out of 5 stars Toshiba has Terrible Customer Service
I was torn between getting the HP 1935 and the Toshiba e355.I finaly went for the Toshiba because of the faster processor speed and the one year warranty.But after one month I started to have problems with the system always coming up with errors. I called the tech support and they said that if I sent it to them they would work on it but it would cost about $100.00 so I figured I could live with the error messages.Then a tragedy happened and the screen got cracked.So I called to see if they would cover that and they don't cover the screen damage in their warrenty.That would have cost $190.00 to replace, so at that price I could just buy a hole new Pocket PC.One Year Warranty, I ask "WHAT WARRANTY?"I should have gone with the HP 1935 in the first place.I spent two hundred on a little paper weight because withthe cracked screen it doesn't do anything anymore. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A very handy unit for both personal and professional use
The Compaq iPAQ H3660 is a high-end palmtop device for both personal and professional applications. With its integrated comfportably sized memory of 64MB it stands out above many of its competitors (newer models available with even more memory) and can also be easily expanded using appropriate memory cards.

The brilliant and well-lighted TFT display is easily read under any cirmcumstances (even bright daylight), and the touch screen and stylus pen make standard (short) input hassle-free. Handwriting recognition is very good, can be adapted to your personal hand. For more significant amounts of text, a fold-up keyboard should be used (but for serious word-processing, better use a full-fledged notebook instead).

Not only windows can be run on this little machine, it is also LINUX compatible and can be used for serious UNIX Systems Administration using wireless add-ons.

Special Linux version available: best of them, LISA Systems' iPAQ that comes pre-installed with mLinux 1.0 for advanced users. A highly interesting special for System Developers and IT pros. ... The free Open Source LINUX Operating System is now available to palmtop computers!

iPAQ with Windows integrates easily with MS-Outlook. The LINUX version supports synchronisation with appropriate LINUX applications. Either way, you get a highly professional palmtop computer connecting to your desktop and existing infrastructure.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dont listen to other ppls reviews.
This is a great product.DUST DOES NOT ENTER THE SCREEN. People saying that is incorrect.What was behind the screen had nothing to do with dust.Compaq had a problem with a company in Taiwan that installs the screen.Do to poor work tiny glass fragments were left behind.That is what the so called "dust" is.This problem has been fixed with all the new iPaqs.Amazon.com only sells new ones, their will NOT be a problem with the screen. Microsoft activesync has a problem when other usb devices are in the computer.I found Microsoft ridiculous when you call user support.Your best bet is to call compaq where they will give a solution that works perfectly.There is a lot of softweare for the ipaq out, and much more coming.For gamers, go to PocketGamer.org for all the gaming news.You can get great emulators to play all the old Nintendo and SuperNintendo games.I recomend the IBM microdrive or if that is too expensive get the Viking cf card.This is by far the best Pocket PC on the line.The 3630 and the 3650 are the exact same product w/ ho differences what so all.I called Compaq to confirm this.The only difference w/ the new compaq 3635 is the cf card that comes w/ it.The new one costs 100 dollars more, where you can buy a cf expansion pack for 35 dollars.I recomend getting the 3635 or 3650.

4-0 out of 5 stars compare casio e-125 before you spend your money
I own a Casio em-500 for a month. I'm glad that I had picked the em-500 instead of ipaq. From ipqa's user reviews, it seams there are quite a few problemsabout this ipaq PDA, such as activ sync is unstable, dust enters to the display. But the casio em-500(or e-125) never have such problems, They are very stable and the activesync work very well. If you go to read em-500 or e- 125's user reviews( I strongly recommend you do so), there's no those complains at all.

Both casio and ipaq have are powerful unites, here are a little differences, other then those ipaq bugs:

1. Display. Casio displayes over 65,000 colors and ipaq has 4,086. For those of you who cares of color and picture quality, you know the difference. The casio delivers better picture quality indoors. Because ipaq uses different display technology, it has much better display out doors. You can hardly see casio's screen when out door an under the sun. So youhave to thing if you use your PDA out doors more or if you mostly use it in indoor environment.

2. Ipaq have a faster CPU speed according to the tech feature. I didn't acutally test them side by side for the speed. But after one month of using my em-500, I thing the casio em-500's speed is very fast, it runs all my applications very quick and smooth. So I think the ipaq should be ever faster too.

Bottom line, read both ipaq and casio e-125(orem-500)'s users review and go to the shop to compare both before you spend your money. They are not cheep.

3-0 out of 5 stars A Great product but before you buy you should know few thing
I bought this product a few months back and was so happy, yes it's true what everybody says about it but that part I will not repeat. what you should know is that the ipaq has a few hardware bugs

for example:

1. many times (almost every time I switch the machine on) the screen is "back to front" and you must restart the machine until it comes back.

2. the screen is not sealed properly so dust can come in from the stylus hole and get between the screen and the plastic cover.

3.the joystick works in a special signalto the processor which makes it impossible to move to an angle or to use two buttons at once which takes all the fun out of games.

I heard Microsoft is working on solving this problem.

after checking out about these problems I was told that Compaq knows all about them all over the world and working to fix them and that most of them are caused from putting the ipaq in the pocket and sitting on it (which I did)..

I contacted Compaq in Israel and got great support and was told to bring the ipaq in and they will take care of all the problems, I know that in the U.S. Compaq sends you home a special box to send it in to be fixed or replaced.

My recommendation is WAIT, I heard a new model is about to come out soon with 400 and 500 mhz, and with more built in memory, and you should wait for these problems to be fixed.

If not of these problems I would have given it5 stars...

5-0 out of 5 stars Active Sync Solution
When i first bought my ipaq in november, i hated the fact that my computer wouldnt recognize with active sync all the time.but i found a solution that has yet to fail. do the following:

1. when active states "connecting" and it doesnt connect. take your ipaq off the cradle. 2. when active sync now says "disconnected" click on file, then get connected 3. another screen pops up and on this click next or ok 4. now a screen that shows that your computer is searching for your ipaq on all ports shows up. 5. turn off your ipaq and set it on the cradle.6. ipaq turns on and connects.

this works all the time when i have the problem and i never have to restart the computer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product
I love my Rex Companion.I got it to synch my Act 4.0 database (over 700 contacts) and my list of personal contacts from Outlook 2000 as well.I had no problems with the software once I got the hang of it.I'd recommendthe clear lexan case some sites are offering for around 12 bucks because itlooks fragile. With it in the case you can still read it but you can put itin your back pocket and not worry about breaking it. It is so small I cantake it with me all the time (not like the large Palm and Visor devices). You can search contacts by various groups, company names, first or lastnames.I added the categories I needed for my business right from Act.Ialso enjoy reading text files from stories I have scanned and pasted intoit in the notepad format.It's great to be able to pull it out at amoments notice and start reading Sherlock Holmes and the like!

2-0 out of 5 stars Too many bugs
As a long time user of PDA's I loved everything about this unit. I even got use to quirky interface to enter data on the run. If you plan to sync with Outlook 98 or ACT 4.0 just forget it. It just does not work. I spent hours on thephone with tech support and could never get it to consistently being overmy data in the correct format. The problem seemed to be all true syncrelated. Stick to Intellisync or Hot sync manager if you sync data onregular basis. Palm Pilot is still the best on the market but just wait forversion 2 of HandSpring

3-0 out of 5 stars Rex organizer
This is a nice product that has the advantage of being very compact as compared to other products in this category.However, I have experienced a great amount of problems in synchronizing with Outlook 98 contacts.Bewary of this problem if you are using these products. Also, the productdoes not include a calculator, which I find inconvenient

4-0 out of 5 stars Use it for reference only
I've tried them all...Windows CE, Palm and now Rex. There is no doubt that the size is terrific, and it makes it possible to have it with you at all times. However, save your money and don't buy the Pro unless you need thememory. Input of info is downright painful and I've long since given uptrying to enter events while disconnected from my computer. Thesynchronization software is also not perfect as it will only recognize 4categories if you use it to organize your Contacts folder in Outlook.Otherwise it dumps all other contacts!

In short, a great device if youneed a reference-only PDA, but virtually worthless if you're looking toenter appointments, tasks or contacts while on the road. Also, nocalculator!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, Great, Great!
Size does matter...especially when the REX can fit in your wallet!I'm a PR Manager for a Fortune 50 company and once my wife got me my REX, my Palm just sits in a drawer.

It's small, convenient and stores those importantnames/numbers (media, business contacts, etc...) that I always seem to needwhen on the road.A steal of a deal... ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars So cool...
I ordered the h1940 on Amazon with free shipping and it arrived the next day! (The website said it will take 5-9 business days...). I've had it for 3 weeks now, and I must say this is quite a piece. I shopped around in stores, and this was the smallest handheld device on the market. It works great with my desktop PC, and keeps me very organized. Now that I'm so organized, I don't know what to do with all this free time I discovered I have, so I'm here writing reviews...

It doesn't come with a case or a cover, so you'll have to find one or risk damaging your display screen. I got the Belkin leather case designed for this model for $11. If you're interested in upgrading to Wi-fi, you can get the SD (Secure Digital) Wi-Fi card for about $90-100.

Update: I'm reducing the ratings to 4 stars because of the following: I mentioned earlier that you can go wifi by adding an SD wifi card for $90. I discovered later that the iPAQ H4155 already has built-in wifi and it only cost $400. In addition the H4155 has a 400mhz processor. If you are interested in wifi connectivity I would recommend you buy the H4155 instead of this one. I wanted to save money so I obstained from the h4155, but now I wish I had bought that one instead of this one. Not that this pocket PC isn't good, in fact it's great. But if you want wifi this isn't the right choice.

5-0 out of 5 stars Powerful Machine in a Tiny Package
Had the 1940 but, with the addition of integrated Bluetooth wireless communication and a faster processor, the h1940 is what I really needed.So much power in a machine that weighs just 4.37 ounces and is very small (4.46 x 2.75 x 0.5 in).Also like the upgrade to Microsoft® Windows® Pocket PC 2003 Professional that is included. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars USE IT, LOVE IT
I have had my Pocket PC for quite some time now, and I love the convenience that it offers.

Plus:

-Great color screen
-Fast and easy to use.
-Cradle adaptor is nice so you can able to sync files from pc to pocket pc.
-Includes Word, Notes, Calender, Calculator, Recorder, Window Media Player, etc...(HELPFUL)
-Expandable

Con

- Although it is expandable, you can't use your memory card to do anything but save materials.I am unable to listen to 256 mb songs... but i have to copy and paste song from the card to the pc every time I get sick of listening to the same song.
- Low battery life!

Other than that... it is great... user-friendly... and helpful if you are busy student or a college student...

I use it to:

1) types notes in class (why carry a laptop when you can get this)
2) MP3 player... besides the issue above, music quality is great... easy to transfer from pc to pocket pc.
3) calender and agenda... (keep important dates in check and be on tops of things)

3-0 out of 5 stars hard to read the screen
This is a good value, but the screen is very difficult to read in less than perfect lighting conditions.Under bright flourescent lights in the office, it is fine.The rest of the time, though, I have a heck of a time with it. The internal memory also isn't really big enough to store MP3s.I decided to go back to paper and pen.

4-0 out of 5 stars Why I still like this PDA, continued
I found out the way to copy photos from my CompactFlash card onto the iPAQ. It's not hard but more complex than necessary. I also found out how to send the iPAQ in to have its screen replaced. A hassle. Its screen and/or stylus should work together so they don't produce scratches in the first place.

4-0 out of 5 stars Why I still like this PDA
I bought this model in 2001 and still use it every day. It is reliable and has lots of software built in. I've added List Pro and Pocket Quicken. The only problems I've had are that the screen has gotten badly scratched, and I can't get the Compact Flash Jacket to read my digital photos.

4-0 out of 5 stars Do whatever you could need...
I bought this pda, and it have all what I need, I can read ebooks, schedule my time, manage my contacts, listen to mp3, connect to internet (With the targus modem that I bought).
The only problem that I found If I can call that a problem is that is monochromatic...., well, If we go deep this is not a problem, but when compared with the other ones that are in color..., well.., you say........, anyway..., if youre thinking in buying this pda, it's a good deal ! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars V37 made me go back to paper dayrunner
I used to have an Ipaq and loved it - My job handed out the ViewSonic V37's and only allowed them to be connected to computers/networks.

The V37 locks up, from turn on to actual use is 30+ seconds, not real fun when your trying to use it to manage your schedule, book an appt, or just look at your calendar for the day.

I found it slow, unresponsive and have given it back.I would rather use a paper planner - viewsonic killed my love of the pocket pc.My next purchase will be a pda/phone/all in one type.Money is no option - quality and performance counts and I did not like the V37.Sell it for scrap.......

3-0 out of 5 stars Can't Upgrade Operating System
There are data syncing issues with this model and other strange behaviors. Unfortunately Viewsonic is no longer offering an upgrade to Pocket PC 2003 which should fix some of these issues. Here is the response from their technical support: "The PPC 2003 upgrade CD for the Pocket PC V37 is no longer in production.". I personally would not purchase anything that can't be upgraded! Buyer beware! The screen resolution is not that great either.

5-0 out of 5 stars Viewsonic PPC After one year
I've owned two IPAQs, and several PALMs. This is the best little gadget I ever had. The screen is so bright that even battery-saving settings are clear. Battery life is good, almost 4 hours continuous. Having a Flash Memory and an SD card I record music, books and games. You can listen to headphones and read a book at the same time for hours!

4-0 out of 5 stars Viewsonic - battery not that bad, very good PDA vs iPaqs
Regarding the previous review concerning battery anomalies - they can be fixed.However, all PDA's have problems with dumping memory when the battery runs out.You will learn how long your PDA lasts given your personal use, and how often you must overnight-charge it (or use a travel charger).

I've had many Pocket PC's - this is the fastest, lightest, easiest to use that I have tried.Much better than many of the iPaqs.

1-0 out of 5 stars Great machine, bad quality control
I got the Viewsonic V37 as part of the Visual Studio .NET giveaway. Things seemed to be fine for the first couple of weeks, except the power display, which would never show less than 100% battery, even when run down to 0.

The next symptom was the machine would not turn off until it burned out the battery or had a hard reset. As this was not acceptable, I wrote to Viewsonic on their web. As I was writing, the machine did a death roll and the only sign there was any life was the indicator light blinking on and off.

It took a few days to dig up the PRN number to get to send it back. Since the return address was bouncing my mail, I had to start the process over again.

Friday, I got the PocketPC back with a note that the system board was replaced. I noticed the power display still did not work, so I figured it was either a common Viewsonic problem, or I had another lemon.

Today, the following Wednesday, the machine only displays a picture of the Viewsonic birds. Soft reset, birds. Hard reset, birds with a "wait for 30 seconds" message and then just birds.

I have a hard time recommending a device that has such poor quality control. I am going to give them one more chance. As it costs quite a few bucks to ship and insure, I am not going to do it more than one more time.

Just for comparison:
I have an older PocketPC that has been through hell. I set it on top of the car one day and drove off. I remember when it flew off the back. I picked it up with a slight mark to remind me of my carelessness. Still works perfectly to this day. Contrast this to the Viewsonic which has given me a couple of weeks TOTAL of enjoyment and more than a month of no service (including time spent at the service facility). ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible, DO NOT BUY
Fortunately, I received this as a gift, as I would be extremely mad if I had wasted $350 on this. After having it for under 5 days, the screen mysteriously cracked without it being touched in any way!

I've read numerous other reports of this happening. The screens on these will crack just sitting on the docking cradle. HP says that it's "accedential damage" and that it's impossible for it to be a defect. You can send it in for an evaluation, if they deem it to be "accidental damage", they will chard $215 to fix the screen. If you choose not to have them fix it, they will charge you $80 just to ship the broken thing back unrepaired.

About me, I'm a full-time employee at a very large software company associated with this device. I'm quite familiar with these devices, both how they work and how they should be treated. I am convinced that a significant portion of these devices are shipping with defective screens that they won't replace. Don't take your chances with HP, buy a different PocketPC. ... Read more
