Summary: On obtaining a 214 two and a half years ago I was initially pleased and would agree with most of the previous reviewers. The problems over the last year start with screen lock ups and upon a soft reset you can lose your data in the calendar and contacts.
Summary: I was quite happy with this PDA, nice big screen, battery life and good performance. I had problem with the system. It kept crashing and freezing. Had to do a clean boot everytime loosing all data. Sent it for warranty repair twice and on my last bussines trip the screen stopped working.
Summary: This is magnificant tool I use it all the time and when i got ipod and iPhone I gave it to my brother and he is absolutely amazed of using it in school every day (industrial deising in CZ) BUT!
Summary: I'm a teacher and wanted to lose the heaps of paperwork we have to use and carry round with us... so bought this product to go 100% electronic. It does the job - I do my registers on it, track students assignments and constantly use the personal organiser functions such as to-do list & calender...
Ok handheld but poor in when compared to many others.
20 June 2010
Excerpt: I got this handheld second hand and having upgrading from a Palm m505 to an HP Ipaq rx3715 and now to the HP 214. I was expecting a lot. What I received can only be described as a sub-stranded piece of junk. The main faults this with handheld are as follows: 1.
Summary: The iPAQ was purchased to replace my 4th Palm Pilot of various models because Palm seem to have got out of the PDA market. It does more or less what I want but is very slow by comparison. Maybe HP should buy the Palm operating system which can also sync with MS Office.
Summary: Bought this as a replacement for my aging 2210. First impressions were that it was very big and that it didn't feel as good quality as the 2210. Using it for a period of time, I now love it and can't put it down.
Summary: A store demonstrator that was said to show minimal wear and tear. In fact, I could detect no evidence whatsoever that it was anything other than brand new. Rapid delivery, good price, goods in superb condition, what else could one want?
