This is my 2nd unit.I liked the 1st so I bought another
29 June 2010
Summary: I had carried my old one in my pocket so long it was not working as well. The units are not in production any more so I bought a used one. This one works great. It is a 520 MHZ operating system instead of the 413 that I had.
Summary: very nice screen graphics. It will take some time getting used to the operation of the unit. I am coming from a Palm Tungsten E2, which I liked very much and it served me well for many years. Not sure about the battery life on the Axim. The seller had not used the unit for some time, so I hope that it is just a weak original battery and a new one will be just what I need. have found inexpensive batteries online too.
Summary: I bought this pocket PC/PDA to replace an OLD Palm Pilot that was dying on me. It is too early in my cell phone contract to upgrade to a Blackberry, so this seemed my next best option. I LIKE this unit--the touch screen is very responsive, it is compact, and navigating the options is easy.
Summary: Processor is OK, but the program memory before the using of Dell Axim was about 30 MB. (You can not manage it as in the windows mobile 2003.) I try to use the newest GPS software - IGo 2008 - but the memory was not enough. So be careful because of program - not storage - memory. If you setup the CorePlayer you can see anything that you want. Windows Media Player very week!
Summary: Great little tool for installing random stuff on it that you'll need on the go, such as any of the many GPS navigaton kits out there. Powerful processor. Battery life is sorta shitty, ActiveSync fucking sucks (that's Microsoft's fault, not Dell), and starting to get obsolete due to PDA phones.
Summary: I recently purchased the Dell Axim X51v because I am a graduate student with a very busy schedule. The Axim is great for keeping tabs on my hectic life; it has an easy to use calendar system, reminders section, alarms – all the bells and whistles. With the Axim connecting to the internet is a breeze; it alerts you when a wireless connection is available and connects in seconds. The screen is far better on this PDA than any other I have used.
Summary: I am very pleased with my Axim X51v. The screen is big and very clear. The memory is more than most on the market and does everything I need quickly and without lag. It has two expansion slots, one of which accepts multiple types of cards. Sync with my computer is easy and fast.
The only drawback I have had is with the CF card slot. If I go a day or so without powering down and restarting, it looses connection with the CF card in the slot.
Summary: Needed a device taht would offer flexibility. Not a cell phone, not just a iPod. The Axim PDA is litterally is a handheld PC. In my business, information in always changing and I needed a way to keep up to date on the fly instead of keeping it on knapkins. Great graphics, easy to handle and operate. The lock button is a bit flimsy, and the stock battery is weak vs. time.
