    Pros: Screen. Amount of cool things it can do, video, pictures, keyboard
    Cons: Battery life. Battery life. Pen slides out too easily.

    Summary: Let me start with an aside that reawakened my love for my UX-50. I just bought the PEGA-VR100K today. Great rep at a Sony store here in Winnipeg found one for me. Told me that it was 499 CND. I kind of laughed and said "after taxes that would be ... read more

    Pros: Usable keyboard, WiFi, Bluetooth
    Cons: Battery life, battery life.

    Summary: It's hard to write a balanced review of this product when, for me, it has both plus points and drawbacks and they are polar opposites. Let me start by saying that this unit was second-hand, albeit a factory refurb from SONY (at least that's what ... read more

    Pros: excellent product, well built, feature rich
    Cons: sony is getting out of the PDA market

    Summary: This PDA is a very well built unit. I have nothing but positive comments for the actual hardware. The case is rigid in design and seems to very durable. The keyboard is small, yet functional. Backlit keys are a nice touch. The one concern I have is ... read more

  • Great product for this 1st time PDA user

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: QWERTY keyboard, fun accessories, landscape screen (big plus for web), easy for newbies to learn.
    Cons: Very expensive purchase price, need to add lots of third-party software for full functionality.

    Summary: One of the primary criteria I had in purchasing a PDA was a QWERTY keyboard. I did not want to learn graffiti or similar handscripting input methods. I also knew that I needed wireless connectivity, because many of the meetings I attend occur near ... read more

    Cons: Screen size, No Portrait screen mode, No USB cradle, Heavily restricted MP3 player, Video Sync.

    Summary: Just purchased the UX-50 last week and at first glance I was quite impressed. The camera is an excellent feature, with surprisingly great quality (for both photo and video). There are some other good features including the voice recorder (which doesn't ... read more

  • Excellent Connectivity, Business Handheld

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent connectivity, small and light form factor.
    Cons: No screen rotation software included, bad cradle design.

    Summary: I figure since most people who are looking at Clie UX-50 would also consider NX80V, I will write a comparison review on it to save you some time. I personally own three different Sony Clie models: UX50, NX80V, and NR70. So I think I am in a good ... read more

    Pros: Small, fast, lots of extras (mp3, voice record, camera, IR, WiFi), very cute.
    Cons: Battery life (some applications), non-palm-standard 3 hard buttons, dim display in daylight.

    Summary: Before buying this Clie, I did 2 weeks of solid research comparing all Tunstens, Clie, and Pocket PCs. The requirements were simple: Small, lightweight, hi-res, colour, audio, media slot (compatible with any digital camera I was also going to buy). So ... read more

    Cons: the price!

    Summary: I spent months searching for the right PDA before stumbling upon this clie. Even then, it was somewhat difficult to obtain (had to be ordered in - although I could have avoided this by purchasing it online). The features I love are as follows: 1. ... read more

    Pros: TWO forms of wireles connectivity should have you covered. Sturdy. Light. Very pocketable.
    Cons: Software shows off hardware with mixed results. More landscape support needed.

    Summary: The UX50 The UX50 was a looker from the moment Sony unveiled this device in a Japanese press conference towards the beginning of the summer. Eschewing the more traditional sensibilities of the Palm lineup and Sony's own previous Clies, I was happy to ... read more

    Cons: Some anoying functions, NO MAC COMPATIBILITY!!!!

    Summary: Wow, where do I start? When I really started looking for a PDA about 5 years ago, I came across the HP Jornada series which included keyboards and a clamshell style. Over the following years, the clamshell style PDA died out. I was so disssapointed a ... read more

    Pros: Keyboard, Construction (metal), Design doesn't require a case, "Flip around screen"
    Cons: Slight whine from screen, only noticed if you look for it

    Summary: I have been "addicted" to PDA's for sometime now, and can't imagine keeping all of my appointments and classes straight without one! The UX50 is AMAZING. Take convinience of the small form factor, the keyboard, and the flip design, you get the ... read more

    Pros: Small size, design, features, eye-turner, weight, camera, bluetooth, memory stick, capabilities.
    Cons: No flash, low resolution, price, better models available, new models always coming out, durability.

    Summary: I love the design.. Sony's PDA's are becoming more and more like mini laptop's. The built in camera is always a good feature, but it doesn't feature a flash and the resolution isn't like the 2.1 MP of the other Sony PDA. Actually, I'd spend double the ... read more
