Summary: Sony Clie PDA discontinued but still excellent product. Likes: 1) Well made, great looking, hi-res color screen, good weight and balance. 2) Keyboard works great with good feedback, back-lit. 3) Palm OS 5.0. Still a excellent OS for handheld. 4) Memory slot to add more space. 5) Very good battery life, easily last a few days with "normal use". 6) Play video/music with add-on software. 7) Nice build-in cover. 8) Jog dial, major convenient! with large back button.
Summary: I am self employed need to keep schedules, appointments. new clients call all the time, needed something to keep track of new leads, phone numbers, addresses for going over and doing quotes. before I had little pieces of paper everywhere keeping track of new estimates. Not no more. This thing is great and the clie memo is the best. can hand write on the screen just like my little scraps of papers, this thing was made for me.
Summary: my sony clie pegsj22 crashed and i needed a replacement. i never backed up which is just not smart. but it gave me an excuse to upgrade. love the keyboard, love the home page, lots of options i may never use but i'm glad they're there. i'm not ready to incorporate my sell phone and organizer into a blackberry or anything like that so this is perfect for me. it has more then i could hope for. very happy.
Summary: I buy one in 2003 and 6 years after of daily use the Clie still working! I bought another one why this Clie is perfect! Very fast and powerful for my needs, Contacts, Schedule, Notes, plays MP3 very well with 3 levels of bass and the right Sony earbud the sound is great! Control my TV and DVD with infrared, connects to internet via bluetooth with my cell phone, I need only to use PalmVNC. I love my Clie!
Summary: I absolutely love this pda. Does everything I want and then some. It is so easy to use and keyboard is so nice. Graffiti can be a little trick till you get the hang of it, but after you do it so simple. If you buy a PDA like this I would be suprised if you did not like it. If this PDA tore up tomorrow I would buy another one just like it. Good Luck!!!
Electronic technology on the cheap that still is cool

Summary: What with everything ending up on increasingly feature rich and equally richly priced cell phones. The later generation of the "dinosaur" PDA still has a lot to offer those of us not quite willing to invest those big bucks in the fully integrated datebook/on-line/text/voice/music and video viewing life. For a fraction of the initial cost (and no on-going service fees!
Summary: having owned several different manifestations of the palm over the years I've grown to love this particular unit the most. I've owned visor prism, clie ux-40 treo 90 and a palm zire. This one adds like the ux40 a built in keyboard which is a necessity for people who want to be able to input large amounts of text fairly quickly and accurately unlike the decuma software.
Summary: Overall, the Clie TG50 is powerful and quite useful for the price. It had all the features I need and none of those I don't (built in camera, for instance). Power management seems quite good for a color screen unit.
Excerpt: I bought this several years ago as one of my many gadgets. At first I was overwhelmed by its features it did so many things and I put it to one side I had previously owned a Psion and saw this as the next step up. Recently during illness I had the time to rediscover its features and since buying the product have bought many other Sony products which I have also been very happy with and its easy to use the memory sticks in all products.
Excerpt: Well, it only took 15 months to write this review but that is exactly what this is, a REview. That's because my equally beloved and abused TG-50e has just died on me! I bought this item a while back for a bargain on eBay with original packaging plus receipt showing it had only been bought 3 weeks before listing so I knew it hadnt been abused already! Upon picking it up I was taken with the looks much more than I had been from the pictures I'd seen.
Pros: Beautiful clear screen, easy - to - use OS Stunning looks
