"IPAQ 214 - Good product let down by poor reliability"

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.

Summary: Poor purchasing decision
