A great disappointment. After a few weeks I could no longer connect to the charger unit through the 24 pin connector on the base of the IPAQ. HP "service" say I have made a mistake and want to charge me over £100 to repair the unit. They are not listening to customers who know there is a genuine issue with the equipment. A pity because in all other respects, the IPAQ fully satisfied my requirements, was easy to set up and use and promised to be a useful piece of equipment. I can still use it but only with the USB charging facility which is very slow and requires computer availability. In summary then , the IPAQ in my opinion has been poor value for money and a very poor reflection on the support offered by HP to a very unhappy customer.
Sorry but there is not enough information or opinion in this review to make it helpful from the point of view of a consumer looking at making a purchasing decision. If you update please leave a message in my guestbook and I will return to re-rate.
