The first and so far only pda I’ve ever owned is the Jornada 545. And I must say, it’s extremely good value. I’ll try and write this opinion so that it’s most helpful for first time buyers of a pda (like I was), as I think the 545 is the best pda for a first time user/buyer. The Jornada 545 was one of the launching machines for Microsoft’s ‘pocket pc’ this is really an upgraded version of Win CE (Win CE 3.0). Before pocket pc, Win Ce was extremely slow, and lacked features, and so it didn’t really take off. Because of that, Microsoft decided to give it a new name in hope that people would forget it’s ...

I've had my Jornada 545 for a few months now, and I can honestly say that it's the most useful & reliable PDA that I've had. I had a 3Com Palm IIIe before, but it's way behind in comparison !! The revised pocket pc OS (which is really just a revised Win CE) works well, and the menus & functionality are 2nd nature if you're used to a Windows OS. The PDA has Word, Excel, MS Money, & MS Reader (& more !) built in, together with the usual contacts, calander, tasks etc. The whole lot also synchronises well with a pc (via USB or serial). Mine came with a 56k modem, which fits into the slot 1 in the top, and connection to the net is ok, ... Read the complete review

Well, had the screen been better, this would have been the best pocket PC in its generation. Lets look at the Spec objectively....The Compaq device has a 200Mhz+ processor...but do the tiny applications that the pocket pc's need really need more than the 133Mhz of the Jornada. I admit that having 32Mb internal storage is handy, but personally, (as i keep my WMA's on a flash card) I find the 16Mb more than adequate! The word files are so small. The new CE operating system is vastly improved on its predecessors. A carbon copy of the Windows9x desktop was simply too complex for the (very) small screen. Pocket PC leads to a far less cluttered screen. The ... Read the complete review

...otherwise, you'd be better off sticking with a Palm series machine or something like that! Why? Well, there are broadly two kinds of users - the busy professional who just wants an electronic diary and some e-mail functionality, and then there are the people who want all of that, plus the opportunity to show off!! You see, the HP Jornada is a great "Multimedia" machine, with diary, e-mail, and a whole host of other features, such as an MP3 player, games (yes, 3D golf is now possible in your pocket!!) You can view pictures, watch movies (in a fashion!) and also record voice memos. But do you really need these features? If ... Read the complete review

Well guys my Joranda 545 has been with me for about a year. If everyone can remember that when the hp 545 first came out it was one of the leading PDA, since then I think the iPAQ has taken over. There is nothing wrong with the 545/548 Except for the screen. As everyone is aware that HP have miss informed there customer about the colour.65 million but only getting 4096 colours. I think this PDA is still quite good. I have several software application running and it works like a treat. I can recieve faxes on the move and dial up the internet from my mobile phone. The expansion slot is a compact flash type I and there is a device in japan which will make it a type II. It .. Read the complete review
