Summary: I am divided over this thing called "Sony". First off, the PEGS320 is great and everything I want. It suits my needs perfectly. After 4+ years the batter still works fine, the hardware is working, and it still functions. I like how it looks and the size. The different programs work perfectly, and the only base software problem I have is a crash with Windows XP when giant amounts of information are Hotsynced.
Summary: This is a super PDA. I've been using mine now for over 2 years and have had no problems whatsoever. I want to upgrade to a color version with more memory now, but I'm afraid I won't find one that is as reliable and robust as this Clie.
Summary: This is a great little PDA - the nice thing is that it's very slim and the battery lasts forever. The screen is very easy to view and I love the backlit greenish-effect - it makes it so easy to read in limited light situations. I've had mine for 2 years and this thing takes a beating and keeps on going. I've dropped it several times and it's had no effect upon it. Great job, Sony!
Summary: I was a firm believer in writing things down on paper - My dayrunner was always with me and worked well for me for many years... I took the step a few years ago to a PDA, my husband bought it for me for xmas, and it was amazing how much i learned to rely on it and use it! Excellent way to keep track of addresses, phone numbers, and organize your busy schedule (both professional and personal).
Summary: I previously had a palm & gave ti t my Wife when I purchased the Sony. The first time that it fell off my desk and hit the ground it broke the screen (approximately 4 months old). Now try to find a replacement or warranty or have fixed? You might as well place in the trash bin!! To replace the screen is worth equal to cost of the unit! I will be going back to a Palm for my replacement.
Summary: I originally received the PDA as a birthday present, and it was new. It drastically changed how I operated my life from day to day. The Clie is very functional for those of us who constantly have appointments and are on the go. The Clie came with a documents to go package which allows the user to make, save, and edit microsoft word and excel documents on the PDA. This has been very helpful within my work because I am constantly writing papers and using databases.
Summary: I bought PEG - S320 a while ago. The screen resoultion is very clear. Its size and weight are quite reasonable. However, It often gives me problem in synchronizing my email on windows NT system if I have large numbers of email (message pops up that the connection is lost), but I have no problem synchronizing it at my home PC. I guess this is a great product with reasonable price.
