HP214 Rock Solid for GPS and complex email

P. J. Menter, Amazon
23 January 2010
  • Summary: The HP214 is the same kit as the HP210 in the US - its screen is large, detailed, clear, bright and colourful. There is a slight stand-off outer screen that means you need to press firmly to get a response from the stylus, this is relative to earlier iPAQ models that have sensitive screens, but the...

IPAQ 214 - Good product let down by poor reliability

lpman, Ciao
18 April 2009
  • Excerpt: A great disappointment. After a few weeks I could no longer connect to the charger unit through the 24 pin connector on the base of the IPAQ. HP "service" say I have made a mistake and want to charge me over £100 to repair the unit.
  • Pros: Ease of use
  • Cons: Reliability and customer service

  • Excerpt: Overall I am impressed with this iPAQ. There is one thing I am not certain about however, maybe it is specific to my one. The touch screen needs to be pressed hard by the stylus in some parts before it responds.

1 October 2008
  • Excerpt: This is a really bad product. I switched from my old iPAQ hx4700, a great machine, to this slowed down and unreliable downgrade. The stylus is impossible to align accurately if near the border of, say, the scroll bar and the virtual keyboard, which is where it has to be when scrolling down a list of...

The Best PDA around!

  • Excerpt: You won't find a better PDA even at higher price ranges!! SUPERB 4 inch screen, CPU power that other PDAs only dream of (624MHz), THE BEST battery capacity (2200mAh) none of the rest have such big batteries and of course VGA resolution which makes things even sharper on the screen.

  • Excerpt: My ipaq 214 broke after 10 days of use, and HP refuses to fix it even though it is obviously well within the warrantee period. They plan to charge me half the price of the new item.
