Basic function and price for multiple people use is worth it.
3 November 2011
Summary: I only bought this device to store some part weights into it. I looked into one of those electronic rolodex type things and found those to be more expensive with less options. This has a rechargable battery, color screen and multiple other functions. I must say we are spoiled...Tis device was cutting edge technology less than 10 years ago and it is not even scratching the surface of a subpar cellphone these days. But all in all it does what I intended it to do.
Summary: Alright guys, today I have a Palm Pilot M130 PDA for me to review. I wasn't expecting this one- and I got it from a local sale that was going on. IDK (I don't know) if I envisioned/exaggerated more of what it could do- but I am going to list it again- as it is something that will not work for me.
Summary: I had one of these a few years ago but the screen broke when I sat on it. I had the matching keyboard. I bought a tungsten E as a replacement with a better picture but no keyboard. When I purchased this used on off Ebay it replaced the broken one. I still had the software so was able to bring it back to current use. And, mostly I wanted a PDA that didn't require a monthly fee to use. Sometimes older technology is better.
Summary: These are great for to do lists, appointments, etc. I have had one back in 2005. For $21 you can't beat the value. I like it much better than the calendar on my cell phone. Would buy another. Highly recommended. The batteries are fairly easy to replace. I got a 1350 mAh instead of stock 850 mAh. This is the m515. A lot of complaints about the stock battery online. But an easy fix.
Summary: While the M130 is an older Palm PDA it's still a quite capable PDA for organizing information for the busy user. The color display is easy to see and use. The setting and adjustments are user friendly and easy to master even for the faint of heart. With just a few minutes even the inexperienced user can be up and running entering important information.
Summary: Over all not a bad product. Removing the stylus though should be done before flipping over the protective cover, which I do like by the way. I upgraded from a serial port, black and white screen, to this USB version with color screen which is much easier to read. Placing the palm into the hot sync and keyboard cradle is not as smooth as my older model, you seem to have to get it just right, but without too much fuss it sets into place.
Summary: This Palm M130 works very good. It is well worth the money that I paid for it. Palm lets you download a free desktop PIM that I use every day. The only thing is that to load the photos you have to use a converter before you can install it on your palm M130.
Summary: love the size,portability,and easy to read,colorful display.Very simple to navigate and use. I do not like the way it slides onto it's charger/docking cradle as it does not snap-in tight and always feels like a flimsy connection.I would like a more sturdy and quality feel to a device when I am docking.Other than this I have nothing but good things to say about this gem of an older PDA.
Summary: They dont make PDAs anymore without phones, so if you want a handheld, you should grab one, cuz soon you wont be able to get any! This PDA, the palm m130, is a solid color handheld that has all the applications that you need to stay on top of all of your busy life tasks.
Summary: The m130 was Palms midrange offering, though now would be low end. The m130 was one of the first offerings in color, it used the Dragonball processor from Motorola, and w/ 16mb of ram these were realy nice units. The final selling point for me back in the day and still to this day is how rugged they are. I have just about destroyed these guys before, they take the abuse and still function. Everything you need in a pda for still works fine w/ the older palms.
