Thumbs Up

Expandable Good software improvements Technologically advanced (it is faster than the brand new m500) Excellent hotsync Not so good dsiplay

eylohGreat Product - Simple, Solid, Functional

Thumbs Up

This is my first PDA. After reading various reviews, I decided to buy it. The reviews are right. It is so simple to do almost everything that is available on it. I have downloaded and bought a few software to enhance it functionality. Though it may not match the power of a notebook (look at the price difference), it do almost all the daily things I want. No regret. Looking forward to even more amazing products from Handspring.

ArmengarBetter than your average Visor

Affordable, Fast, Lots of Memory, what more could you want? Plus it comes in different colors!

After a year of using the VDx in school, I can safely call it a lifesaver. It's a great alternative to loose leaf paper. If only teachers would beam worksheets instead of handing them out :-( .

gorrakI love my visor deluxe

Thumbs Up

I got a blue deluxe. I use it all the time. I'm a student and I keep track of all my homework, tests, projects, and activities outside of school. I put a couple games on it so I can keep myself entertained when bored. I really like it.

Oh wow!! I wish my girlfriend was as informative and serve more than one purpose like my Visor Deluxe. I just had my first problem with my VD butt dang handspring customer was on the ball the emailed me back within a hour???? can ya belive it an hour!! well my VD devloped a stress crack along the side starting form the on button. well i press the on button and a small piece of plastic popped off. I only had it 6 months, Butt handspring customer service told me they would replace it. butt i found my recipt and i bought a "best buy" warranty and they replaced it. and i got a new color to. that was neato. The only complait i have is it takes forever to sync. well cause i got VINDIGO, which is my most used application, and AVANTGO, and jungleport and i hate waiting for the VD to sync. I wish handspring would come up with a new sprinboard that had arms and legs for my VD so i COULD MARRY MY VISOR DELUXE!!!!!

ginn7First PDA and I'm happy!

Thumbs Up

This is my first PDA and I did quite a bit of research. It was between this, the Palm lllxe, and the m105. All three were the same price so I had a difficult choice. I happened to get a deal for the Visor so that clinched it. Plus I read the best reviews for the Visor Deluxe. I'm pleased to say I made the right choice. The Visor is great! The cover is a bit awkward but you can always buy a nice case. Plus it comes with a slip case. The USB cradle is fantastic. I sync my Visor with my PC everymorning and it takes less than a minute. Thats with downloading all my AdvantGo webpages. I rush in the morning so this is a must for me. It's also fast and the buttons are firm. All in all this is a great PDA if you are trying to decide like me, go with the Visor!

LNKI love it

Im 14 years old and got this for Christmas. It's so cool. I use it as my planner and to get passes. I also have downloaded lots of games and stuff. I want to get the modem and the digital camera next christmas. I read on one of the reviews that you can't reset it with the stylus, but you can. If you twist off the tip of the stylus there is a stick that you can reset with. Just wanted to voice my opinion and say that VDX is the best.

Ezila Z.Visor Deluxe is the best possible PDA ever!

I use my Visor every where- the car, at school, at home- everywhere. It's the best product ever and it's only gotten better now that I have a Stowaway keyboard.

Soul RavenThis is "VisorCental" after all........

Thumbs Up

After reading some of the previous comments, I have to be fair and say that Handspring has come a long way in the last year and a half. I got my Visor in the middle of November 1999, one of the very first. Originally, they did have some customer service issues (which they fixed). The original stylus was a solid piece of plastic, but I see they fixed that and send a different stylus now. Finally, those of us who believed in the Springboard slot have been proven right, and no longer have to be contect with "just" the 8MB Flash and Backup module (good products in their own right). I am well into double digits of people who have purchased a Visor after having seen and used mine, including 2 who returned Palm V's and switched to Handspring.
