Im floored at how powerful these PDAs have become. I have been using it for 2 weeks now, and today in this simple one day it made my entire investment worth it. Im a high level analyst at my company and today we had our offsite meeting, I was the junior member there everybody else was either manager, controller or a director.
Half way through the PPT the laptop crashed, we spent 20 minutes fiddling with it and finally realized it was jsut kaput. The IT guy on site said he would run to the office to bring another laptop but it would take 90 minutes, I said hang on.
I used my Axim 51V to log onto the hotels wireless internet asked our secretarhy at work to email us the presentation, then used my VGA cable to hook it up to the projector set it at 1024x768 and started up the presentation and we were good to go. The exceutives and managers were COMPLETELY floored, Im sure I just sold 5 axims for dell but also secured myself a solid bonus come March!
I whole heartedly endorse this item, not only does it more then suffice as a day planner its multimedia capabilities are mind blowing.
Still no problems as of yet and all the major negative comments I have seen are simply because they have not taken my advice above and done the fix. It is PARAMOUNT that you do the activesync fix.Read more ›
It has both a Compact Flash and SD slot for expanded memory. Dell includes a host of software on the system as well as more on the included discs. Everything you need from word processing to powerpoint, even 3D games is included, (not all software is free, some is trial). And speaking of 3D capabilities, the X51v is no slouch. The 624 MHz version plays anything you throw at it. Quake Mobile runs perfectly on this machine and looks fantastic doing it. The overall 3D capabilities are just outstanding.
The design and feel are great and the buttons on the side are well placed. There is a voice record button as well as as a wireless access button. The directional pad on the unit could be a tad more intuitive, but the only need for that is games. The unit is solidly built and feels that way.
Overall I think the X51v is a very capable machine and quite possibly the best PDA on the market.
However, it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT that you update and fix the MS activesync problem before you can enjoy the solid-build X51. it is still unbelivable for me that Dell and Microsoft failed to fix this problem before shipping x51/x51v out to customers. The ROM update is not necessary. Simple set activesync to be manually lauched instead of the default automatic update. All the problems with battery drain, CF card missing and white screen of death just disappeared. With my casual use, a fully charged battery lasts over a week. I use it as my digital diary, calculator, game console, dictionary, media/file portable storage, and lot more. Absolute worth every penny of it. However, one flaw is that the bluetooth stack does not work with wireless headphones (any tips?). Otherwise, it can also be dubbed as a wireless phone/MP3 player.
I owened this unit for almost a year and now I regret I did not choose the wifi and vga version (x51v). I only had to replace the battery last month after almost one year of use, which maybe due to my constant recharge eveytime I sync with my PC. Now I am thinking about getting the extra wifi card so I can use it as a wifi phone with Skype. Better yet, now there are third-party larger capacity batteries available and I found one 1800 mah battery that can fit with Dell's leather case. Perfect!
Overall this is a perfect unit, and I would recommend everyone to get x51v instead of x51. The extra money is definitely worth it.Read more ›
Strengths: Just about everything. The processor is absolutely incredible. I heard (unconfirmed) that the Intel 624 MHz PXA270 is faster than a 2GHz Pentium 3! It sure seems like it. This PDA blazes through movies, photos, games, word processing, and anything else I can throw at it.
The other definite high point for this PDA is the screen. Once you see a VGA screen like this, you will be astounded at the difference it can make over a QVGA screen. I have to get about 4 inches from the screen to even see the pixels. The screen is crystal clear.
The battery life is phenomenal, even with the standard low capacity battery. Playing a movie at full brightness and full volume will last about 2 hours, extended to about 4.5 hours on low brightness and headphones. Turned off with a 1GB SD card drains the battery about 2% per day.
WiFi is amazing. It connects consistently and is moderately easy to set up. Once connected, it keeps the signal well and is, while not fast, reasonable for speed
Just about everything on this PDA is almost perfect.
Weaknesses: Not enough programs to start with, Windows Media Player 10 (Download TCPMP, it's way better)
Problems: Don't use Odyssey Client, it makes the PDA start up really slow. Also, in ActiveSync, On the PDA, select Menu, Add Server Source. On all of the screens, put random characters in each field, and deselect any check boxes that tell it what to synchronize. Then go to menu, schedule and select manual for both.Read more ›
