I picked one of these up abroad in Canada 3 years ago at a pretty good price, I found it very handy and very easy to use. I originaly used it to conect to my internet at home, but after upgrading the internet it wasn't compatable so i'm making do without. It is an excellent tool, with XP i would sync it using the software it came with, and vistas new Windows Mobile Device Center also does an excellent job. The onboard memory is not huge, but then i just stick a 1 Gig SD card in the top and it's fine, so it's never been an issue for me. My first stylus wore down but it was simple to pick up another one. The battery is not too bad during use, but it does tend to drop down if you leave it turned off for a week or too, so keep an eye on it. The onboard sound isn't fantastic but I don't use it for that so it's fine. The buttons on the front however are a bit iffy, some of mine have stopped working. Also my Word Mobile software has stopped working. I do however like how it can sync with Outlook, which i use for my Calendar. It is a good buy if you can pick it up at a reasonable price, but do take care of it, and make sure it is compatable with your internet if required, but i would certainly recomend it.
