get way to get organized without spending a lot of money

Excerpt: This was my first attempt at stepping away from the paper calendar and I didn't want to spend alot of money because I wasn't sure I would use it. The Palm Z22 was just what I needed. It's small and fits in the inside pocket of my purse. I always have it when someone wants to schedule a mtg. It stores my schedule, calendar and things to do list. Easy to use. Love it.
Excerpt: The Palm z22 is a good product. I do not go anywhere without it and would be lost if I did. It manages my contacts, to-do lists, my appointments, my family's appointments. Anything I need to remember is contained in this Palm which is just slightly larger than my cell phone. The only drawback is that it needs some external light source, which should have been included, such as a brighter backlight or illumination.
Excerpt: The Z22 is great for people who want to keep their life organized without spending a lot of money. It's easy to sync up with your PC so any notes, memos, appointments you make on either one can be transferred to the other. It does not connect to the internet so if you want that ability you need to choose another model. The main drawback I've found in using it for the last 2 years is that the screen is very hard to read outside in the sunshine.
Inexpensive little device that keeps all my stuff in one place!

Excerpt: The Palm Z22 is perfect for someone that wants to carry their calendar, lists, contacts, deck of cards, paper, and pen with them in a tiny little device. I have all of my info on Outlook 2007 and since getting my Palm z22, i can take the info with me everywhere I go. I have no real complaints except for the alarm funtion. The default alarm sound is so low and quiet it would not wake you if you had it next to your ear.
Summary: I love this PDA. I bought it as a backup for one that I've had for about 3 years - for when the battery dies and I have to send it away to be fixed. My LIFE is on this PDA so I never want to be without it. Calendar, contacts, memos, etc. I keep both PDAs sync'd with my desktop. My only complaint is that after I sync, I get a message that not all messages were copied. If I sync it again immediately, it's OK. Both of the PDAs have this problem.
Summary: I like the size and simplicity, as well as the dedication to a single purpose. But make sure that you buy at least three if you decide that this PDA is for you. The devices sometimes get into a snit, and even a full reset will not straighten them out. You have to put the Z22 on the shelf for a couple of months, waiting for the internal battery to completely (and I do mean COMPLETELY) discharge. After a couple of months, completely charge the Z22, and initialize.
Summary: The Z22 is a nice little Palm OS PDA. It has non-volatile memory which is not true of the other Zire models, and it has a pretty fast ARM CPU. The only downside is the small-ish low resolution screen, but those give it great battery life and a small overall size. Overall it is a very solid device with good battery life. If you need a Palm OS handheld PDA, than it is a good choice.
Summary: This PDA is so simple to use. I have been using Z22s for 10 years-this is my second one. My only complaint is that you can't add memory, but even that isn't a deal breaker. If I use this as an address book, notebook and a scheduler( I am a visiting nurse and keep track of patients with it) it's all I really need. I don't need a lot of games, which is what I'd add. A couple is enough.
Summary: I use it mainly for the calendar which synchronizes nicely with my Outlook (idem for my contacts). Works great. Nice that it recognizes handwriting and transforms it into typed text. Old school but great.
