Great fun - with reservations.

  • Summary: A great palm device, but get one that isn't password protected. I lost two that would not reboot after a hard reboot. Don't expect an ipod, it won't connect to all wifi sites, and don't expect to synch to a windows 7 or 8 machine, XP only. Palm Inc. died before Windows 7 and they don't have a driver. Great fun if you get one cheap.

  • Summary: If you are caught between a TX and a Lifedrive--go with the TX. While the LifeDrive has more room, it is lacking in speed when compared to the TX. The TX is seamless when switching between applications. The LifeDrive will hang and freeze, when switching between applications, for what will seem like an eternity no reset is needed--just patience.

for a cheap fun device to mess around on it is OK but has been superseded by the smartphone

  • Excerpt: Although a little outdated now, especially with the release of the iPhone etc. The Palm LiveDrive offers a sensible solution for keeping your live in order with a few little tricks to keep you entertained as well. To start of with the LiveDrive is very nice looking, cast in an aluminium body with a 3.8 TFT screen it is really nice to hold and feels really well made.

Lifedrive or a waste of life savings

  • Excerpt: Lifedrive. On a recent business trip I purchased a Palm Lifedrive at a cost of just under $400 (about £225). For your money you get a soft leather case, Charger unit and the PC data cable, along with a software CD. My main reason for the purchase was to buy a new gadget that combined MP3 playing with some other useful functions, like games email and internet. GENERAL The main reason for the Lifedrive choice was the 4GB internal hard drive memory.
  • Pros: Good screen, MP3 player, lots of memory
  • Cons: connectivity to internet, no camera

Palm with all the bells and whistles!

  • Excerpt: Great leap forward from Palm. This has solved all the memory capacity problems I had with my old Palm Tungsten T. I now have everything I want in one place, no need for memory cards, although these can be used if you wish. Bulkier than my old Palm but just as easy to carry around. For PDA virgins: This unit combines your diary, address book, MP3 player, email, photo album and to-do lists with a calculator and an alarm clock! Sorry, it won't make your tea!
  • Pros: Huge memory, good processor, acts as a USB removeable drive
  • Cons: Size, start - up response time

Good Concept, but not practical.

  • Excerpt: When I this arrived a couple of weeks ago I was dying of excitement, but reality slowly kicked in. The Hard Drive has to be the selling point of the PDA and thats about it the thing itself is pretty slow, and like many other users I have also experienced automatic reboots, and frankly for £290 or so I shouldn't have to deal with that. If you want to buy a reliable PDA this ain't the one to go for.
  • Pros: The 4GB Hard Drive !
  • Cons: Wi - Fi Signal Strengh and Memory

Palm LifeDrive Warning!

stobbie66, Ciao
30 April 2006
  • Excerpt: I bought a Palm Life Drive a few months ago and am still living with it, although there have been a few times when I have wanted to throw it with all the force I can muster from my office window. Having been a Windows PDA user I migrated to the Palm Life drive from reading reviews but never actually using one in anger. Having done so I have to say as soon as I can justify spending some money on a new PDA I will without any hesitation. Anyway, let's begin with the review.
  • Pros: Build Quality, Looks
  • Cons: Slow, Restarts without Warning, Poor WIFI
