Psion Series 5

Consumer Democracy
10 October 2002
  • Summary: I find the keyboard on the Psion 5 very easy to use, but it makes your arms ache after continued use for >1 hour. Otherwise it is almost the perfect portable computer, but could do with a screen which is more clear.
  • Pros: A handheld portable computer which fits my needs
  • Cons: The poor quality of the screen

  • Summary: Great storage but pricey. Keyboard is quicker than "pen." Kind of large and clunky but still more easily usable than a Palm. Not good however, to have to carry around day to day.

  • Excerpt: "...let's face it, the 1997-era Psion Series 5 now comes into that category) writing a review for a general audience could be seen as something of a waste of time, since in all probability the great majority of people who would enjoy using one already know about it and are already involved in the retrocomputing scene. The Series 5 is just a bit different, in that there are one or two areas where it still beats the opposition. It's very much a niche product ...
  • Pros: Great keyboard, very long battery life, very compact, cheap to buy
  • Cons: Rather poor screen, no (real) net capability, software range isn't huge

A review for those ...

  • Excerpt: "...put it down! I love my Psion 5. I accidently broke the screen on it earlier this year and got all anxious until I was able to replace it (thank you, ebay). You see, I'm a journo and a lot of my time is spent commuting so I pack one of these in my bag and I can work on the go. It's just perfect - I can use up all my dead time in a positive way and it's just like having a mini office with you! It's smaller and lighter than a laptop so it fits ...
  • Pros: portable, easy - to - use, backlight, perfect for writing on the go
  • Cons: record function switches itself on randomly, bit big compared to other models, the stylus falls out of its slot a lot, case coating peels off easily

  • Excerpt: Bien que ce modèle ne ce trouve plus à la vente il y a un gros marché de l'occasion et on peut trouver des Séries 5 pour pas très cher (moins de 2000 fr pour un 8 Mb) étant donné la qualité de la machine.
  • Pros: OS, Clavier
  • Cons: poids

Un bien piètre rapport qualité/prix

11 February 2003
  • Excerpt: De prime abord, le psion série 5 peut paraitre séduisant : son écran est large et bien défini, son clavier très pratique, son stylet de pointage ergonomique, et sa logithèque très fournie. En bref, tout ce que l'on peut attendre d'un assistant personnel.
  • Pros: un bel objet
  • Cons: cher, fragile et lent

  • Excerpt: Grace à son interface RS232, son faible encombrement (poids, taille), il est l'outil indispensable pour l'acquisition temps réel de données (via un microcontroleur 68HC11) et ce, quelquesoit le lieu et le temps. C'est un véritable plaisir que de posséder cet appareil. Je n'oubli pas ses qualités pour la rédaction de documents, sa ludothèque bien fourni et bientot la possibilité d'installer une version de Linux (linux 7k).
  • Pros: trop nombreux
  • Cons: prix élevé
