Summary: The Prism does exactly what I needed it for. I am very simple when it comes to electronics. As long as I can turn it off and on and get the basic tools that I bought the item for then all is well in my world. I don't know about the things it can do when it comes to downloading from your computer. But the calendar, notes and addresses I manually enter is all I need. Great!
Summary: I bought this to replace my wife's Prism. She uses her Prism daily to keep track of things and is lost when she is without it, she loves her Prism. We both use Prism's for keeping track people (friends,relitaves, doctors, etc) and our appointments. It is a great inexpensive tool!
Summary: Item works great better than expected (with my PC) I learned it's not compatible with my Mac but that's Handspring and Apple's fault not the seller had I not upgraded my Apple software it would have been compatible. I'm very happy with the item since my previous one died.
Summary: Prism is a great old-skool pda, Magellan GPS is great, although technically challenging. The basic contacts, calendar, to-do functions will boost your productivity. The calculator is amazing, with full trig functions, etc.
Summary: I bought this for my father since he was showing an interest in PDAs and couldn't find the cable for the Avigo I gave him years ago. It's still possible to download the desktop software and manual for this unit from Palm. (Although this product was developed and sold by Handspring, Palm is supporting it.) In teaching my dad to use it I remembered how much I liked it.
Summary: I like it. It is better than 5 of my broken Palm Tungsten E2's! My background: 1983 AS Electronics Technology 3.05 GPA 1983 General Telephone Operators License 1984 Began 14 year career with RCA / Thomson Consumer Electronics as an Engineering Technoligist 1985 General Class Amateur Radio License
Summary: I have bought 6 Prism's now and love playing games on them. The only reason I have bought so many is my husvband drops them on the floor too many times. They take a lot of abuse and keep working even without all the buttons.
Handspring Visor Prism PDA's and Handheld Computers Review
9 December 2000
Summary: This is a great product. It has a wealth of software available for it, but I find that I have to recharge it at very least every 2 days, more often if I use it a lot (and I do use it a lot, about 30 minutes to an hour every day).
Pros: Great color and options of programs
Cons: The battery doesn't last long enough between charges.
