Great value! And great service from seller.

  • Summary: I've always liked this iteration of the Palm organizers -- they're simple and small, but very practical as well. And the screens are easy to read. And the Graffiti (simplified writing style for "typing" with a stylus) came right back to me! You get the hang of it quickly.

  • Summary: The advertisement stated that this device would work with Windows 7. That is not correct and this device is useless to me. False Advertising!

  • Summary: I am very happy to have it. The only problem so far is that it did not hot sync to the calender and address book from my old one well. I lost all my curent addresses and gave me ones that were years old and all unfiled.

Palm m500

46water, Ebay
2 August 2012
  • Summary: The unit works, however, there is no manual and it is difficult to get the information that is needed to synch the unit with other devices. Also it does not seem to have a very bright display although I set it on maximum. I am now trying to find out how to enlarge the type font without directions. I formally had a Garmin GPS that was made by Palm and the display and brightness were superior to what I have been able to achieve with the m500.

If you can still find it at a good price. Great product.

  • Summary: Likes: 1) Still works great as a basic electronic organizer. 2) Battery holds charge for a long time, not sure if original battery has been replaced. 3) Feather light, screen is readable inside and outside. 4) Ebook reader, calendar, task, memo, contacts... lots of good features. 5) SD memory card slot, great for books storage. Really hadn't any negative to say. Just know its limitation. Oh backlight is not the best, useable.

REALLY hard to read screen.

bvbday, Ebay
16 February 2012
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my Zire 71, and it was compatable with Windows 7 if I got a new laptop. Everything was great until I realized that there was hardly any backlight on the screen. If you hold it really close and cup you hands around the PDA you can see the light. Needless to say it is really hard to read. The Zire is 300% brighter. I ended up sending my Zire in and had it refurbished.

  • Summary: Still enjoy the Palm 500.Have not used one for 5 years.Would use it more if it had more apps to choose from. It needs to have a phone feature added and it would be perfect for my use.
