Summary: I started out with a HP 1940 iPAQ and decided I needed (?) a wireless one. I have used a HP iPAQ hx2410 for a couple of years. The original was purchased used on ebay and the second one was also. My first iPAQ began to have on/off switch problems. I could not depend on being able to turn it on or off. I purchased a second identical model so I could use all of the software I already had for the hx2410. The newer one is quite satisfactory and was not very expensive.
Summary: I use these PDA's for my work as a forester. I have installed forest inventory software and enclose the PDA in an Otterbox. The computers have never failed in all types of weather-- rain, snow, five below zero, 103 degrees... I bring the data back to my home computer, sync, and what a great time saver. I prefer the older models, because I have no patience to continually update all the software.
Excerpt: I really wanted to have one of those! I was looking in several websites and they were so expensive. I'd thought to search on eBay, so I did. I got my iPAQ for £160.00 + £20.00 delivery from US. It took 3 days for it to arrive and when it did I was excited. I believe it worth its price as it has a lot of great features which I'm about to describe. To begin with let see what you get with your iPAQ when it arrive.
Pros: perfect size ! very nice design and easy to use
Excerpt: I've had this PDA for 7 months and am becoming increasingly dependent on it... Plus it takes a while to discover all it's features The screen is sharp, there is no screen 'noise', and it is bright enough (on full brightness) to use outdoors. I usually use it on minimum brightness though, to save battery power. 320x240 resolution is ok but screen size is a limitation - I wish it were larger.
Pros: Sleek, rugged case with screen cover, bright screen and good battery life
Cons: lacks a scroll wheel and higher up the price range
