The Sharp Wizard OZ-590A Electronic Organizer is the perfect product for those looking for an affordable, functional organizer without the fancy colorful displays and features that are never used. The OZ-590A features 8 MB of memory that stores thousands of entries--and with three phonebooks, you can easily look up thousands of addresses and phone numbers. Information is displayed on the large 80 by 111 dot backlit display. In addition to the phone/address book, there is also a calendar, memo function, "to do" function, birthday/anniversary function, world clock, calculator with conversions, expense manager, alarm, and games. You can use the alarm to keep track of all your appointments. A 24,000-word English/Spanish word translator is also included.

The OZ-590A syncs with Microsoft Outlook via USB and is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP Home and Professional, Windows ME, Windows 2000 Professional, Windows 98, and Windows 98SE. Software is included to enable the sync. At less than half an inch thick, this Wizard will easily fit in your pocket and go everywhere you do. A protective flip cover protects the display from scratches and damage. Battery life is approximately 120 hours when data is continuously displayed without backlight, and can last a year when turned off with the clock running. The Sharp Wizard OZ-590A Electronic Organizer runs on one AAA battery and is backed by a 1-year warranty.

OZ-590A electronic organizer, alkaline battery, software CD-ROM, USB PC-Link cable, operation manual, and stylus.

First and foremost, this product is NOT for people who are -
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.

I am a busy pastor who constantly changes hats and needed a better system to stay organized. The Sharp OZ-590A did the job.

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.

I got the Sharp Wizard because I just wanted a simple way to organize my calendar and to-do list without spending tons of money on a bunch of functions I didn't need and won't use (aka a Palm Pilot or Blackberry).

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 was looking for a small, cheap electronic organizer that would sync with my Outlook calendar on my work computer. This fits the bill perfectly. I paid $11 for a refurbished Sharp 0Z-590A and am very pleased. It is very thin, lightweight, and fits in my smallest purse. I now have access to my calendar at all times, a necessity given I have to keep track of myself, my husband, and two children's schedules. It took me about 2 hours to set up the software and sync feature because the tech guy and I did not have the adaptor plug all the way snapped into the Sharp unit. It looked like it was all the way in, but needed to go another little bit before my computer detected the device. Without this problem it would have taken me about 30 minutes.

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).
