Excerpt: A PDA is a personal digital assistant which is basically like a mobile phone but usually without calling features but with more handy utilities and applications like organizers, calenders, games etc..
These are older models, but still work great for most needs!

Summary: Outstanding even though this is a older model. I had a m500 since 2000 which bit the dust and wanted to replace it as it fit my needs great. Considering todays phones will do everything my m515 can do. I perfer to use the m515 over my phone and this is why I purchased this m515. I would buy one again as they work great for my needs. My m515 hooks up to my computer which has a great program that I use daily.
Summary: I have a Palm M515 that I have been regularly using since 2001. I purchased this unit as a backup since my original Palm is getting a little finicky at times and the battery is getting weak. The Palm M515 I acquired is in almost new conditon so I seized the opportunity to procure it. At this point I do not even want to think about what it would take to transfer the information I have on the Palm M515 to my Samsung smartphone.
The best, compact and cheapest way to work with basic data.

Summary: I was considering purchasing an Android or Smart Phone. After reviewing how smartphones were networked and set up to charge the average user an obscene amount of money, ($30.00 a month on a data package), I went with the Palm M515. I like this product because the applications and files can be resident on the device. I use it for my task lists, calandar, car records and shopping list and the best part is I can edit my Word Docs, Powerpoint and spread sheet docs on it.
Now if it could be trained to yell at me to come back.-don't leave me here!

Summary: It works just like the one I left on the roof of my car when I had to pull off the rode to get a haircut. This is my third m515; the others being lost due to the immediate need for a haircut. This palm is one of the best PDA's for the price, and they are getting cheaper as I forget to take them off the roof of my car.
Nice little organizer - smart phone would do more but...

Summary: This is to replace a M515 I lost - they can attach to GPS, internet, dock to a computer, phone lists, transfer files, use Microsoft apps, etc. - great little unit. My first one was over $500, yes it is now out of date - but works for me.
This abandoned treasure is truely a brain supplement in my pocket!

Summary: This is my fourth Palm of the 500 series. Through those years new gimmicks and new brands have come out, none of which fit my needs/financial limits; a "best buy" for me. Those who can afford the latest can keep up with it. I don't need and can't afford such luxuries. The reason for my current m515 purchase is the back-light, something sorely needed. The rest of it's many features have totally answered my pocket-memory needs for years.
Summary: I purchased this to replace the Palm that I had for several years that had quit communicating with my computer. I like the Palm because it is good for geocaching. I can download the geocaching info into the Palm and it helps to locate the geocache. I am not sure if I will buy another one or not. They now make GPS units that will accept the geocaching information that I need. It costs a good deal more, but I may buy that one instead.
Summary: I would love this product if I could get it to hotsync and I even bought a USB IR for it and it still cannot or will not hotsync. Haven't resolved that small problem yet. I now have Windows 7 and could not use my Zire 72 with it either, and think now they both have the same problem with the new Windows. Other than that, it works wonderfully as long as I don't try to hotsync.
