Advantages: Excellent Value!, Good Software, Brilliant Support from palm
Disadvantages: Variable Backlight, Limited memory, dodgy hot syncing
The palm m130 is a great gadget. Infact I could barely live without it! Its great value for money at just over 200.00 with a colour screen I might add! I did have a problem with the screen as it became misaligned I needed to send it away to palm's factory for repair, the process was simple and fast. I sent the pda way and was returned within in 1 week fully repaired. Thanks to palms Hot Sync all my data was fully restored! Since then I have had no further problems whatsoever. I really commend palms excellent support services. The m130 supports SD cards and thanks to its universal connector it can be connected to a modem and an external keyboard (which I?m using right now to type up this review!). The m130's battery life is good but not when partnered with graphical colour games. The Hot sync function is reliable but recently I have found it very difficult to hot sync due to some problems with the cradle.
Overall I am pleased with my palm m130 pda and found palms level of support exceptional. In hindsight I would buy this product again it is excellent value for money.
