Top Customer Reviews
1. Looking for the 65K or more colorful display.
2. Looking for E-mail synchronization.
3. Looking for wireless connectivity or surfing the net.
4. And finally looking for MP3 playing or huge data storage etc.
That said, this product is VERY USEFUL for people, like me, who -
1. Do NOT want to spend a lot on features that we will rarely use.
2. Do NOT want to worry about charging their units every half a day so as to not lose data (this pda runs on 1 alkaline battery and hence, we just change it every month at the most).
3. Want to just get organized with their basic data such as contact numbers, addresses, emails, urls, memos, to-dos, anniversaries, reminders, expenses etc.
4. Want to use a very simple interface and yet have all the necessary stuff we need.
5. Do NOT care whether they input their data through graffiti or an on-screen keyboard (this PDA does not have graffiti or any hand-writing technology).
I like the touch sensitivity levels and the ease-of-use. It is very light-weight and very slim and small.
The calendar allows you to schedule appointments. By writing the appointment time for 15 mintues before the acutal appointment and setting the alarm beeper, it is a great reminder. It has a clock, and lets you write "to do" lists. The enclosed softward makes it easy to synchronize Sharp OZ-590A with Microsoft Outlook. You can write a list of addresses and phone numbers with the mini-keyboard on the Sharp OZ-590A or using your computer with Microsoft Outlook. By connecting the Sharp OZ with the enclosed cable to your computer, the two will synchronize one another. If you have a Mac, I do not think this would work.
The only drawback is that sometimes after synchronizing it freezes up; this is remedied by removing and then replacing the battery. It takes a second. Then you have to check to the clock. If you do not do this quickly, you might have to reset it.
This really does the job for me. It is smaller than palm pilots.
It's great to have all the addresses and phone numbers you want on your person, to be able to schedule appointments and set reminders. This is a good deal. The used, reconditioned version is even a better deal if they are still available.
In the beginning I was pleased with this product. But over time I noticed that it has some serious flaws in the way in synchs up to microsoft outlook. It duplicates tasks and meetings, erases some meetings and keeps others, and sometimes things you've added to the Wizard won't show up on Outlook after you've synched it.
It's a nice little product if you're not thinking of hooking it up to a computer - once you do that though it becomes more of a pain than anything. Not only that but recently I've found that a synch will succeed about once every five tries. Otherwise it just sits in "preparing schedule" mode for literally 20 minutes before the synch is terminated by the system.
Folks just spend the money and get something better. I give it 2 stars because it's easy to use and the layout of the functions is simple. However the task list slips out of "date due" order all the time and just lists them in seemingly random order. There's no way to sort tasks other than "done" or "pending". If you sort by date in outlook it rarely shows up that way on the Wizard. Also schedules on the wizard are listed by day - but each day doesn't show the date on it. So if you're looking at several days worth of meetings you can't tell what day of the week you're looking at.
Lastly - the memory just isn't enough. I've had the unit about 4 weeks and haven't put that much in it and already it's down to 75% free space. That's just not enough.
I would not recommend this product.
I highly recommend the Sharp organizer if all you want is to carry your electronic calendar with you, and a few phone numbers, e-mails, calculator, etc. But be warned I think it would be hard to have this device as your primary entry tool for an electronic calendar. The read-out for the daily schedule is small, and difficult to understand. It just lists times and description, without the date. You have to know what date you are looking at, and to do so you have to switch back and forth from calendar mode to schedule mode. It is fine if you just occasionally need to check a date, but I would go with something better if you will constantly be updating your calendar on the portable unit.
Also, I had no problem with storing e-mails on the portable unit, but decided not to since it used a lot of memory (I have a lot of e-mails, too).
