After he brought it back to the USA, I got it, and took it out of the box.

Unfortunately, this sad software issue has sealed the deal as my last Sony computer/PDA purchase ever - the hardware design is advanced but the software is not.

There is a huge debate on which medium is best, Secure Digital or Memory Stick.

Sony initially entered PDA market with a somewhat weak PALM unit in the Clie PEG-S300. With little fanfare and poor design, it was destined to fail up against PALM and HANDSPRING. Many thought that was the last we would hear of the Clie. Only a few months later, not only did Sony introduce two new models, but they took the PDA market by storm. Although the Clie line is still relatively unknown to many people, among PDA aficionados the Clie line has arguably surpassed HANDSPRING and even PALM as the number one palm unit in the market. Its combination of innovative initiative, sleek design, affordable prices, multimedia capability, enhanced screens and battery source that has really made SONY the new driving force in the PDA market where PALM once was. Considering that SONY is a baby in the PDA market this is an amazing feat.
After much contemplation and research I decided that the Clie N760C was my next PDA. Owning a Vx for about a year and a half, my next PDA certainly had big shoes to fill. Now that I've had my N760c for about 2 months, those high expectations were not only met but in some areas exceeded. I will break down this review into three criteria's, which I feel are critical in reviewing the N760C.
The first criterion has to be the SCREEN. Both fans and critics of this unit will agree that the screen is its crowning glory. It's an accepted fact that to date it has the best screen of all Palm OS units and even Pocket PC units. Its high resolution of 320X320 is a far cry from all of Palms and Handsprings 160X160 resolution. Text look so much better in hi-res particularly Avantgo. Also its 16bit screen (65,546 colors) displays a far better range of colors then the m505 and the Prism. Even at the lowest brightness level, the visual output is comparable to the m505.

+ The basics of PalmOS is all there with some nifty Sony add-on programs that show images, video, and of course the MP3 audio files. There's a software interface that essentially allows your memory stick to act as your extended memory drive. The easy movement of files from cpu to Clie is either through an install app or simply drag-drop once your computer sees your Clie as an external drive.
+ The foremost knock-dead product quality is the crisp and clear and bright screen. You need to see it to believe it. I dump portfolio images to display to clients, friends, and show off. The upper casing is metal (aluminum probably), the lower a painted plastic. The Sony side scroll-dial has a new companion - a separate back button below it that acts beautifully on AvantGo; learned browser manipulation actually is capitalized on mobile products!
+ The MP3 audio player (included) is two pieces - the remote control and then a plug in headphones. The remote has a nib that allows Clie input without fumbling for a stylus. Personally the earphones are a real pain though. The two wires are almost completely separated creating a wire management mess; the slip around ear lobe design is just too annoying with tension and constant pressure placed on a part of the body that shouldn't be used as a latching zone. Dump them for something more ergo.
(-) This all leads to the negative issues. Sony support for their software is ridiculous. It says XP compatible - but it is NOT. It installs incomplete with no `Intellisync' limiting me to using the Sony calendar and no sync to Outlook. After 5-6 attempts at complete uninstall and install - there's no more sync capabilities whatsoever; rendering my XP machine non-communicado with Clie. No response from Sony other than the automation.

I have been nothing but 100% satisified with the Clie 760. To be honest, I was leaning heavily toward the Palm m505 until I decided to learn more about the Clie 760. The Clie 760 is quire simply the m505 with a better screen and an mp3 player. When the prices of the 760 became very close to the m505, my decision was made! Now I will be able to get all of the benefits of a great PDA, but will also have a walkman to travel with as well! The bundled software is excellent, the Clie 760 has Palm OS 4.1, and the color screen is second to none. I especially like the bundled feature that allows your Clie's memory stick to be shown as a removable drive in Windows Explorer. This makes transferring apps or mp3s to the sticks very easy. With the cheaper memory sticks available from companies like Lexar, there are no drawbacks. If I have to throw in one complaint, I would have liked to see more business-related bundled software. Getting Documents to Go (like the m505 bundles) would have been nice, but I am nothing but glad I took the time to check out and purchase the Clie 760!

I bought my Clie about two months ago and I must admit, all the hype and hoopla over the PDA was somewhat deserved. The clie really is a handy little gadget. I recommend it to everyone who lacks organization and even those who just want to stay organized. It has all the functions of a Palm plus an MP3 Player, PG Pocket and PhotoStand, which allows you to store and share photographs in virtual color, and just when you think you have it all, the Clie also comes with digital capabilities that allow you to download and watch movies in color right on your PDA screen. How wonderful!! Right. Now for the not so wonderful part. Even though the Clie is a remarkable handheld, it's not God. It does have its imperfections. For one, the Clie has this added protection feature that prevents you from beaming mostly all of the software that comes with the handheld. Add-on applications can be beamed though. Second, when the Clie freezes (sometimes this can happen suddenly and for unexplained reasons), there is literally nothing you can do to reboot the handheld. If you reset, you have to erase everything on the handheld completely and any new information you've stored since your last hotsync is permanantly lost. Even if the amount of data lost will be insignificant, this can still be a frustrating inconvience if you're away from you computer and can't immediately perform a hotsync to restore your data, in which case I hope your memmory is relaible because that will be your only source of recall. Overall, the Clie is not a bad buy. It's not perfect, but then again what is? The Clie is an organizer, a walkman, and a portible video player all rolled up into a fun, colorful, compact solution. I give it four stars.
