I wouldn't buy one again

claireq19, Ciao

  • Excerpt: I bought this with a view to using it instead of a diary but it really doesn't make a very good substitute. I opted for the light green version which looks cheap and nasty but it was the only colour in stock at the time.
  • Pros: Easy to use, easy to read, lots of functions plus downloads available
  • Cons: Flimsy, batteries run down really quickly, the colour is a bit naff

  • Excerpt: How many different types of PDA's are there out there - yes lots! Well what do you want to buy one for - as a trendy diary, show-off item,mp3 player,pocket calculator.....the list goes on and on and on. Oh, and how much money do you have spare?

  • Excerpt: Once again, Apple has set the trend - this time with its see-through plastic computers - and suddenly everyone wants to do the same. If you've got an iMac, a G3 Pro or even a shiny new G4 then this is the PDA that'll look best on your desktop. Pity its HotSync cradle is still black, though.
  • Cons: "doesn't have mac connectivity straight out from the box"

Handy little thing.

  • Excerpt: I am quite a disorganised person, and so a while ago, I decided to buy one of these little gadgets. The model that I bought was the Special Edition IIIe. The special edition bit means that instead of the boring grey casing, it came in a transparent case that looks pretty good.
  • Pros: Help to keep yourself organised
  • Cons: Batteries run down a bit quick

3Com Palm IIIx Special Edition

WilliEast, Ciao

  • Pros: High battery life, Size, Flexibility, Range Of Apps, Cool Factor
  • Cons: Mono Screen

Amazing

  • Excerpt: When I bought my palm 3e, I didn't expect to get much out of the 2 Megabytes. It turns out that it is ample; I have about 15 extra apps installed with plenty of free memory. The date book, memo pad, todo list & phone directory come in more useful than you'd think.
  • Pros: Quality
  • Cons: Shape

Cheap and cheerful

  • Excerpt: The IIIe is probably most basic of the range but more than adequate for the average user. After being totally dumbfounded by the amount of competition on the market and the volumes of blurb to absorb to find a suitable recommendation I plumped for this one.
  • Pros: Easy to use
  • Cons: No Memory Expansion

  • Excerpt: The Palm IIIe is one of the budget range Palms, costing only a little over £100. It comes in a clear plastic case, and looks very nice! I bought it because I wanted to have a PDA, but could not afford to spend very much. Considering the price, the IIIe has a lot of features.
  • Pros: Inexpensive and feature packed
  • Cons: Not upgradeable

  • Excerpt: I have had my Palm IIIe for a few months now, although it gets through batteries (partly because I am playing a wolfenstein clone all the time). It is fantastically usefull. Linking up to my PC I can get my diary for work, SMS events through my mobile to people.

  • Excerpt: Before purchasing the Palm 111e and reading a number of online reviews I noticed the main discussion was regarding the (allegedly) measly 2mb of memory. What are people talking about?
