While I think the idea is dumb, it works great and isn't all that expensive.

My iPAQ came with this expansion pack and it made all the difference in the world to just the organizer it is by itself.

The iPAQ can play mp3's directly off compact flash, there are a lot of available expansions for compact flash.

I learned quickly that while the iPAQ was a great PDA, I used the onboard storage up quick. An e-book or two, a map or 3, maybe a couple of mp3, all of your "pocket outlook" files, avant go content and, heaven forbid, a short video file and you don't have any memory left at all... you can't even rub two bits together!
If you don't want to spend the coin for the PC Card expansion pack and battery time isn't a big issue to you, then this is a great solution. You can throw in any of several compact flash modules or, if you are a real space junkie you can use an IBM microdrive in it. At about a fourth of the cost of a PC Card pack you can add in that extra 128 mb. A warning tho. Given the opportunity to add in more storage, you will want to. I think everyone who can will want a Microdrive in this thing at one point or another. Sure, it drains the battery a bit more but in my opinion that is more from you using the content you carry more often and not a serious drain from the expansion pack.
Happy computing.

This a good product for its price. For (...)dollars you can add a modem or expand memory or add a wireless ethernet or ethernet or make your IPAQ GPS capable. But one thing product lacks is that it uses the battery of the IPAQ so it reduces the time you can use the IPAQ. The PC card expansion has its own battery so it helps the IPAQ last a little longer. And the PC card expansion has more items that can be used with it. So you just have to see which is more usable for you the CF card expansion or the PC card expansion or none if you dont need the expansions.

The single compact flash expansion sleeve is a minimal way to go for expanding your iPAQ. The iPAQ can play mp3's directly off compact flash, there are a lot of available expansions for compact flash.
It might be wiser to look at one of the "PC card expansion sleeves" as they include an extra battery! You can pick up Compact Flash adaptors for PC cards cheep, like under ten US dollars.
Compact Flash memory can be found at fairly low prices.
With this expansion installed - the protective cover which comes with the iPAC 3765 is a fairly tight fit.

I bought this Expansion pack when i bought my new Compaq Ipaq 3765. I have used it for about a month now and i really like it. The Ipaq fits in it very well and it does make the Ipaq easier to hold when i am walking around the office or at home answering email or surfing the net. I use a Linksys compact flash 802.11b card plugged into this sleeve to connect to my company's intranet I do have a problem with the size in that none of the cases will hold the Ipaq with the expansion slot on. This makes it a little hard because when i leave the office i have to take the sleeve off to put the unit in its case for the trip home, or take the chance of scratching the face of the Ipaq. I am kind of worried about how long the connector will last with this kind of use.
Over all it is a very good product. I have not had any problems with this piece and for the price it is worth it... you won't go wrong.

My iPAQ came with this expansion pack and it made all the difference in the world to just the organizer it is by itself.
I have a 256 Compact Flash Card where I have my MP3's and of course all my documents and photographs, I also have a modem to check my e-mail anywhere, and a Network card to connect at the office.
It is kind of bulky, but for me, it is as functional as a PC without having to carry the Laptop.

Before I begin, I love my iPaq. However, this is my biggest gripe with the iPaq, they need this expansion pack to throw a CF card into them. Without it, the iPaq is small and sleek; with it, it's huge. And, with the sheer amount of stuff out there with Compact Flash connectivity (modem, networking, CF cards, etc), I think it is inane that Compaq didn't at least include it with the iPaq. Or, better yet, build a CF slot into the machine.
Still, it is necessary for what I think is the best PDA on the market. While I think the idea is dumb, it works great and isn't all that expensive. Hence my 4 star rating

My problem with this product is not the functioning of it, but the fact that cases made for the IPAQ, won't support use of this product!!!
It works exactly as designed with no problems whatsoever. I can even plug in the sleeve "hot" and it works like plug and play. But if you need a case, you'll have to use an aftermarket "large" PDA case, or a small digital camera case.

I have purchased this from my Compaq iPAQ a few days ago. THIS IS A MUST HAVE FOR YOUR iPAQ! Before, I was only able to store a few things on my iPAQ, and then all the memory was full. So I purchased this and a memory card, and now a can store MANY items on it now -- including mp3's emails, apps from the web, and other personal information. If you have not purchased this yet, you MUST buy this NOW! If you dont have this, then your iPAQ is just going to be another useless gadget that sits on the counter and collects dust. Also, if you purchase this, you may want to buy the 56k modem, and a Compact Flash memory card. These will come in handy if you want to get on the internet, or add more memory to your iPAQ. On a scale from 1-10, I rate this a 20 -- a MUST HAVE!
