    Seiko InkLink Handwriting System
    by Seiko Instruments Austin, Inc.
    Electronics
    list price: $129.99
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

    Editorial Review

    The Seiko Instruments InkLink handwriting system is the ultimate tool for instantly capturing your handwriting or drawings directly to your handheld, laptop, or desktop PC.

    It's easy to use, works on ordinary paper up to legal size, and easily clips onto 50-page tablets. Plus InkLink comes with its own carrying case that fits in a pocket or purse.

    Using Seiko's exclusive binaural technology, the InkLink Data Clip continuously listens for communications from the InkLink pen while it tracks the natural movement of your hand. As you write anywhere on the paper pad with the InkLink pen, the InkLink Data Clip reads precisely the location of the pen tip and communicates its exact position to your handheld, laptop, or desktop PC.

    Sounds complicated? Believe it or not, InkLink is about as difficult to use as a paper clip. With InkLink, all you have to do is think it, ink it, and link it. ... Read more

It is compatible with Palm III series or later, Sony Clié, Handspring Visor, and HandEra handhelds.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Smartpad helpful, could be better
    I just got my Smartpad 2 the other day, and today was the first day I used it in my classes.It is very impressive and has several distinct advantages compared to normal pen and paper note taking.You have a digital copy on your PDA, and your computer, and if something goes wrong with these then you have a hard copy.I also have hand pain and can't always take my own notes, so I can have a friend take theirs on my Smartpad and keep the hard copy.No more trips to the copy center to copy notes.My biggest problem/dislike about this product is the limitation of an 8' by 5' sheet of paper!I have to flip pages constantly.In my calculus class I can't fit an entire problem and its derivative on one page with the notes that go along telling you how to do the problem in the first place.This can be VERY confusing.Also, don't plan on viewing your notes on your PDA with much success.Magnifies up to 4x, but mine didn't come with the software to do this, and I can't find it on the website, so it's almost impossible to view at the 2x level.I have a Palm IIIc now, but I'm upgrading to an iPaq or similar device this summer, I think I might also opt to upgrade to the Seiko Ink Link.I wish I'd seen the Ink Link before I purchased the Smartpad 2.With the Ink Link you hook up the unit to a legal pad and it captures what you write to your PDA or computer.You don't have the page size limitation with the Ink Link that you do with the Smartpad.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally - something that works for me
    This device isn't for everyone, but it fits my needs perfectly.It represents my third attempt to find an affordable, easy-to-use solution to getting scribbled meeting and design notes and drawings into my computer for quick dissemination to interested parties and stakeholders. I've previously tried the A.T. Cross-Pad (no longer made) and the Logitech IO Personal Digital Pen (ASIN B00006JP23), each of which fell short for various reasons.

    Here is how I use it - during meetings I take notes, do sketches (user interfaces, high-level system design diagrams, etc.), and list follow-up items.This material is automatically beamed to my Palm Vx as pictures of the sketches and/or notes.I upload these to my PC and email them as attachments.This gets information out quickly, which can be followed up later with more refined notes transcribed into a word processor (by hand) or better drawings (I use Visio).

    It does one thing only - captures pictures of what you write on plain paper - and it does that exceptionally well.

    I liked the easy set-up, the fact that it comes with a QWERTY tap keyboard (it's under the pad), and performs as advertised.If your needs are similar to mine stated above and you have either a Palm or Pocket PC PDA you will probably love this notepad.However, it does not perform optical character recognition, so it that is what you're seeking you need to keep looking. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars I was very disappointed in this unit.
    I was very disappointed in this unit. I was going to take it on two-week trip, where the eight of us could save all of our pictures, and review them in the hotel during the trip, and burn a DVD for all at the end, but after discovering the following deficiencies, I threw it in a drawer instead: (1) power brick and cables were almost as large and as heavy as the unit itself, (2) the unit took 5-7 seconds just to display the next picture - making quick review very frustrating, and (3) the video cable for displaying on a TV did not work, or just barely worked if one jiggled it and held it out 1/16th of an inch and applied pressure - either a defective or poorly designed cable/plug.I'd expect this from a $5 pair of cheap headphones, but this unit cost me almost 600 dollars.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very good allrounder
    I had the need for a product that could be used for: 1. playing MP3, 2. dumping photos 3.Viewing photos and 4. Portable data storage. Along with the Archos products this was the only device which can do it all. I selected this because I prefer the "gameboy" design since it protects the screen well. In fact, I was so impressed with the specs that I was prepared to pay about $170 shipping(to south africa) and run the risk of losing it since there is no support outside US/Europe at all. It all paid off(so far). Fortunately it arrived intact and I have had the device now for 3 problem free months.

    It plays music with exceptional quality and photo dumping from all card formats are a breeze with the very flexible optional adapter. TV connection also works well. The video only supports Motion JPEG - MJPEG.AVI files. I have been able to look at .avi videos taken with a Canon camera successfully. However with a downloadeable translation tool from their web site, many other formats can be translated and it works. The translated video takes up a bit more space after translation. Since the device firmware can be upgraded, one hopes that they will come out with more video codecs. The only glitch i found is that the operating system can be very slow when you have large directories. With 80GB of dispace available, a directory can become too large very quickly. That requires a lot of organizing if you have lots of music to store. I also requested from the support people to confirm (before I ordered)whether I would be able to read a Memorystick Duo (with supplied adapter) but there was no satisfactory answer. Battery life is not great, about 3 hours when playing music only, but that should be expected for a device such as this. When only using it for dumping photos, it lasts for days.

    A nice feature is that it can read .M3U playlists created on our PC and you can create playlists on the device itself.

    An all in all impressive product which have given me countless hours of joy(so far) and I would recommend it for sure. In fact, I have not seen a device on the market yet for the price that can beat it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars One of the better digital storage devices out there
    -Easy User Interface. Plug and save for your compact flash card without having to turn the unit on if you are in a hurry.
    -Nicely designed exterior and 3.5 inch display.
    -The screen resolution in review mode wont allow you to determine sharpness absolutely but definitely will allow you to review pictures and show them to friends.
    -There are smaller units out there but this is a nice compromise for size and functionality.
    -This unit is a hard drive,so don't expect to take this running when you listen to you MP3 player.
    -It has good sound quality when using headphones.
    -My only complaint is the "case" is just a felt bag, I was expecting something more durable. ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Go iPod...
    This is the 6th month with (or was) my Nomad Xtra. I absolutely loved the product and it was totally worth it... until now. I remember correctly that I didn't drop it even once, and I went extra protection for my Nomad. The cover kept popping off but I didn't care, putting it back on wasn't much of a chore. But the headphone jack went awol and I was in the middle of a song when it went totally blank. I thought it ran out of battery until I realized that I left a few minutes ago fully charged and ready for my day. Then I went everywhere online to see what happened and saw countless ppl with the same problem. I was sad. I lost hope in the product, I even tried calling customer service who advised me to "stick my headphone end into the jack and wiggle it violently" or "bang the jack against the wall." it scratched and scraped my player but i just wanted it to play. After a month of grueling I pondered whether to pay 175 bux to fix a product that wasn't really reliable, or buy an iPod 20GB. I went with the 20GB and to say it still hasn't had any problems. Go iPod or Dell, iRiver at least. Save yourself while you can.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Heavily researched all of them, VERY happy with my choice.
    I spent about 8 or so hours online researching all the mp3 players available.I was looking for a 20 or 40 GB player, but ended up getting the 60GB because it was only about $30 more than the 40GB.

    Every mp3 player has its pros and cons, I can live with the 'cons' of this player, no problem.I chose the Zen Xtra because:
    1-It has the most bang for its buck..

    2-It comes with a battery that you can replace, Ipod doesn't and neither do some of the others.

    3-It comes with volume normalization, others don't.I have obtained mp3's from all over the place, and some are way louder than the others, this will set them all at the same volume.

    4-You can buy a car DC adapter, some others don't.

    5-The sound is very crisp...I did buy some $30 headphones, and the sound is fantastic.But even with the earbuds that come with it, the sound is still very good and crisp.

    I don't know why people complain about the software, I'm no computer person and I figured it out in no time.It's a bit bigger than the Ipod (and they say you can't run with it), but it's not crazy big at all and I don't run with music anyway.My carrying case (included) has a window for the screen and I've had absolutely no problems with the player.The battery life is about 8-10 hours, depends on how much fiddling you do with it.

    Other than that, all I can say is that I'm very happy with this product, no question.I picked it up for $279 at buy.com I think.I would highly recommend this to anyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars QUESTION TO THOSE THAT OWN IT!!
    Hello,
    I am seriously considering buying the Creative Nomad Zen Xtra 60 GB MP3 Jukebox, but I could not deal with not being able to have my music organized by album with songs IN THE ORDER THAT THEY COME ON THE ALBUM. Can it be possible that they designed this product with no way to have your songs stored in the correct order by album?
    Someone please tell me there is a way to have songs organized by artist with all songs from each album together, in the order they are supposed to be!?!

    Thanks,

    4-0 out of 5 stars Mobile Jukebox and more
    It's great having my entire cd collection (over 550) in one tiny place. Now I'm listening to music I own some of which I hadn't listened to in years.

    I was really excited when I got my iPod. From the packaging, to the device itself, the design is outstanding. Very easy to use. Sound quality is very good. Can be used as a back up hard drive too. Software is a no brainer to use.

    I also faced the problem of tracks skipping but all I had to do was delete affected tracks/albums and recopy and they were fine.

    Was able to get lots of useful advice from other people's reviews, e.g. how to ensure long battery life (try not to let the battery run out completely) and how to copy music files back to your pc which quite a number of people are unaware can be done (change your folder options to show hidden files). I do it all the time.

    So why not 5 stars? It's not perfect. Battery life could be better, and it does scratch rather easily. Oh, did I mention the earphones? Not too good I'm afraid, and very painful on the ears, when worn for a bit. Thank God I had some good Sony headphones. Also, the fact that it does not support the much smaller WMA files which take up much less space than mp3s. I've got about 7300 tracks on my iPod, and only about 4gb space left.

    Still a cool device that never fails to turn heads.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Not for long distance runners!!!
    Talk about frustration!! What I thought was a really great break through, turned out to be a total nightmare.After 25 minutes the Ipod would either completely stop working all together or just skip repeatedly then stop. I found out that it was designed to "catch up" after 25 minutes but it wouldnt even start again most of the time, just freeze up and be completely worthless.Returning it was a even bigger nightmare because no one was able to test it out and see that it would malfunction....I guess if you work for Apple stores you dont run. I had to pay a restocking fee to get rid of this nightmare. NEVER will I purchase another item from Apple.I love my Nomad Muvo that I bought, and couldnt be happier.

    1-0 out of 5 stars junk
    Your better off with a Nomad. I tried 2 ipods and they will only synch with one PC. So if you want to transfer mp3 from pcto another forget this thing. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Language Selection
    Sharp VNEZ1 MPEG-4 is a great little camera until the batteries fall out when the power is on, and then when you put them back in you find your menus are in Japanese.Then you get a Japanese person to look at it to change it back to English and they tell you there is no menu option to change the language selection - which rings a bell because I never saw an option to change the language selection when it was in English!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Works With my MAC
    Yeah, the discription says for pc users, mac users are out of luck. Well I have a MAC, so I can break the rules! All you need to do is purchase a smartmedia flash card reader compatible with MAC and you will also have to download a free windows media player for MAC, thats it! I use a multi flash reader thats compatible wih my os9.2 . Unfortunately my reader does not work under osX.2, but, there are readers that will. I can still share my files with osX.2, or drag n drop into my Virtual PC, so whatever os I use, I can still view and send my visuals over the net!
    MAC users, no need to worry, you have a MAC. And you know you cant stop THE MAC!

    3-0 out of 5 stars My Sharp mpeg-4
    This little unit looked so cool I bought it as soon as they were available in the USA. (You can't beat the size, it's about the size of a pack of cigarettes.) I've had it for about 1 1/2 years. It's come in handy on a few occasions. But the output is so low res, I find myself yearning for more dpi. I'm getting better at taking pictures with it, given its limits, and currently have one of its photos as my desktop screensaver. Even at that size (on a 19 in monitor), it looks OK. I just sent my mother 4-5 photos of her grandchildren and they uploaded (winzipped) in about one minute on an analog line. The shutter is a little slow, so there's more time then you may be used to after you click and before you see.... You know what they say, you can't have it all. With this you trade speed for quality and convenience for precision. And it just gives me another excuse to buy another piece of equipment. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars So do SanDisk cards work or not?
    I just purchased my SVAV100 and am looking forward to using it. Obviously it would be nice to have greater storage than the 512 MB card that is included.Previous reviews are contradictory. One person says the SanDisk Ultra II (with 10 mb speed) works fine for MPEG 2 recording while another says the SanDisk Extreme III (with 20 mb speed) does not work. Before I spend the money for a 2 GB SanDisk card, it would be nice to know if it really will work for MPEG 2 recording on the SVAV100.Can anyone confirm?Thanks.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Little Camcorder
    I have 2 other MPEG4 camcorders but the SVAV100 beats them in MPEG4 recording.In MPEG2 recording, nothing comes close. This unit is really amazing. I could not believe the quality of the video!I bought this camera after reading all the posts in JackBrown's forum which, incidentally has been down for over a week now -- I started a website forum of my own at http://forums.merinotv.com to help those who may be thinking of purchasing this item.Please feel free to post anything like comments, help, etc.I did not find any difficulty other people have claimed regarding not being able to play the MPEG2 video.In fact I tested it in my 2 PC's, 2 laptops andPC tablet, never did I have to rename the .mod file to .mpg. MS Video Player, Elecard and QuickTime as well as other players were able to play the video.For editing, I only use Sony's Vegas and did not have any problems editing. So all you people who have been holding purchasing this product, you can now get the SVAV100 at very good discounts.I got mine for $499.00 plus tax with free shipping.

    I am just adding this to my review.I just purchased a Sandisk Ultra II 2GB SD and I am able to get 45 minutes of recording in MPEG2.That is enough recording time for most.I heard 4GB SD's will be coming out too but will be in the $400-$500 range. You can find 2GB SD's priced between $179-$199.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice picture and great portability.
    I've had this for about a year now.Battery life last about an hour and generic replacement batteries from Ebay work fine.WARNING!USE ONLY PANASONIC MEMORY SD CARDS IF YOU WANT THE MPEG2 (DVD) QUALITY RECORDING!.The manual says a card of at least 10megs/sec recording time is needed for Mpeg2 recording. BS! I bought Sandisk Extreme3 SD cards (20megs/sec recording speed) and IT DOES NOT WORK!Panasonic 1gig sd card are about $179 at B&H Photo and at J&R Electronics.Panasonic came out with the 20megs/sec recording speed sd cards so the standard 1gig should drop in the future.I take this snowboarding and YES it withstands all day worth of tumbles thanks to no moving internal parts.I lost the battery cover at Mammoth Mtn and bought a replacement from Panasonic's 800 number for $7+$5ship+tax.I download the sd card from a card reader to my comp hard disk and record it straight to a dvd via Roxio DVD creator.No widescreen recording but the quality is almost dvd like on Mpeg 2 mode (704 x 480 lines of resolution on Fine Mode and 352 x 480 on Norm mode) assuming it has enough lighting.Records 10 mins on Fine mode and 20 mins on Norm mode with the included 512meg card and double those times with the 1gig card.AGAIN ONLY PANASONIC SD CARDS WILL WORK FOR THE MPEG2 RECORDING.Any sd card will work for the Mpeg4 recording mode and the picture mode which are pretty much useless due to the lack of quality.Yes you need several Panasonic SD cards if you want to record alot.Word is that Panasonic AKA Matush. will come out with the 4gig and 16 gig sd cards for their larger video camera with the widescreen recording.Imagine the price of these cards!

    Pros: size, no moving internal parts, dvd quality recording, stereo sound recording, wind cut sound recording.

    Cons:EXPENSIVE PANASONIC ONLY SD CARDS NEEDED, 20 min max MPEG2 recording with 1gig card, Battery life only 1hr. ... Read more

    Sony DCRTRV80 MiniDV 2Megapixel Camcorder with 3.5" LCD, Memory Stick, Bluetooth Wireless Connectivity, and Networking Capability
    Average Customer Review: 4.0 out of 5 stars
    Electronics
    list price: $1,599.99
    US | Canada | United Kingdom | Germany | France

    Editorial Review

    Since MiniDV has entered the mainstream market, users can now demand extra features in addition to regular digital video performance.The Sony DCR-TRV80 is well equipped with technological additions, such as a 2-megapixel digital camera and wireless Bluetooth networking capabilities. The camcorder also features a 10x optical zoom, 16:9 widescreen mode, a 3.5-inch LCD with touchscreen control, and a color viewfinder.

    Step-up Value
    Here are two Sony features that adds value to this digital camcorder and differentiate it from other models in the Sony lineup.

    product image 2.0 Megapixel Sensor: Of all the world's consumer camcorders, Sony was the first to break the megapixel barrier. Working with high-resolution recording and high-precision Sony custom optics, the benefits are dramatic. You'll see amazing detail on everything you shoot. Every blade of grass. Every strand of hair. The names on the back of player uniforms. And megapixel resolution is also a great benefit in Sony's Digital still camera function (Memory Mode). You'll be able to shoot images at 1600 x 1200 pixels, for prints up to 8 x 10nches.
    product image Digital Still Memory Mode: Capture digital still images directly onto Memory Stick media for easy transfer to e-mail, printing, or sharing with compatible Memory Stick devices. Digital still images can be captured while in Memory Mode, or images from the videotape can be captured onto Memory Stick media. This feature provides the Dual Function of having one camera for video and still images, and provides the user with a whole new world of imaging possibilities.

    Image Stabilization
    Sony's SteadyShot picture stabilization keeps your images smooth and steady without degrading picture quality. The technology uses motion sensors, which tend to be more accurate than most other systems used in the camcorder market.

    Optics
    The multicoated Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar lens ensures balanced and clear contrast. The advanced HAD CCD sensor records images accurately in vibrant color and sharp resolution. The TRV80 has a robust 10x optical zoom that fits most purposes, but for extra distance the camera can reach 120x through the digital zoom. A hologram autofocus system and several autoexposure modes allow for automatic operation while achieving ideal images for the situation.

    More Features
    You can record video in low- to no-light situations with Sony's NightShot system, which uses infrared light to capture images invisible to the human eye. With the function on, subjects up to 10 feet away can be seen in total darkness. You can also use the color slow shutter for color night shots instead of the regular green night-shot hue.

    Sony's Stamina power management system and InfoLithium battery give the TRV80 a long operating time. To keep you informed of current battery life, Sony's AccuPower meter displays the number of minutes remaining right in the viewfinder.

    You can take digital stills and record small MPEG EX movies using the included 8 MB Memory Stick. This is where the 2-megapixel resolution CCD really shines, creating images that can be printed at sizes of up to 1,600 x 1,200 pixels for prints up to 8 by 10 inches. The intelligent pop-up flash keeps your images well-lit and visible.

    The TRV80 features a huge 3.5-inch color LCD and a color viewfinder. The menu is accessed via a touchscreen display on the LCD, reducing the clutter of buttons on the camera. A stylus is also included for ease of use.

    The USB streaming feature can turn the TRV80 into a video-conferencing tool or a Webcam, and the standard IEEE 1394 connection can be used for digital video editing on a computer. The TRV80's improved Bluetooth technology enables wireless peer-to-peer data transfers and Internet connectivity with an optional adapter or Bluetooth-enabled cell phone.

    MiniDV Format
    MiniDV is the preferred format for personal and broadcast-quality video, highly regarded for its high audio and image quality. With up to 540 lines of horizontal resolution and minimum color noise, MiniDV delivers a 20 percent clearer picture than analog camcorder formats. This is all delivered on a cassette that's 1/12th the size of a standard VHS tape. A MiniDV tape offers digital recording time of 2 full hours--20 times the capacity of a CD.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    The Best Camcorder i have ever had by far.Bluetooth is the coolest thing, and the picture quality is supurb.I would reccomend this to anybody who wants a high quality camera.Yes, you spend a few extra dollars, but in the long run it is worth it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow
    What a camera indeed. I just got it three days ago and after reading the manual I see there will be a lot of learning ahead for me. There are so many features this camera has I know I will not use most of them. The video is sharp and the photos are better then expected (acceptable but I will still use my digital camera when needed or preferred). The supplied 8 MB memory stick is only worth a tease, you will have to get at least a 128 MB or greater! Being in the Air Force and stationed in Germany this will be one treat to carry along on up coming trips!

    I am technically competent, but a novice at video photography.Therefore, I spent weeks reviewing a a number of various cameras.I ultimately decided on the TRV 80 because of:the HAD technology, the 3 1/2 touch screen, the digital still, the still pop-up flash, along with the features rich capabilities of this camera.I have used it for about a week and have found it to be very easy to use.The controls are intuitive and the manual has been very easy to navigate.You should also consider the need for various accessoriies.I purchased it with a bundled package which included: tripod, 2 additional batteries, wide and telephoto lenses, case, tapes, cleaning kit, USB card reader, and a four year MAC parts and labor warranty.Add on package was less about two hundred seventy dollars and well worth it.Also spent a long time looking for editing software with good reviews.Settled on PYRO Digital Video, which indluded a 1394 PCI card and software compatable with the Sony camera.They have beginner, intermediate and Pro versions available.So far I am extremely pleased with the camera, and accessory packages.I am able to take great videos now and when I master the advanced features I'm sure the quality of the movies produced will improve.Highly recommend this product and suggest you consider the add on packages, especially the 4 year warranty. ...

    Editorial Review

    Early Adopters Pick: November 2003. The world's first portable DVD player with a 12-inch LCD screen.

    Pushing the limits of portability, Samsung's widescreen DVD-L1200 DVD player manages to pack a laptop-rivaling 12-inch TFT LCD screen into a chassis standing a mere inch high when folded. Enjoy the best of your movies, music, and digital photography through the player's multiformat playback abilities, including MP3 and JPEG image CD-Rs and CD-RWs as well as standard DVD-Videos, DVD-Rs, and commercial CDs.

    The whole family can listen, too, through either the unit's inline stereo speakers or its generous three .125-inch headphone jacks. Spatializer virtual surround simulates enveloping sound effects through two channels, and motion zoom allows extreme magnification of selected screen areas, without distortion, even while a movie is playing.

    The screen displays discs using 480p progressive scanning (named for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image), creating a high-resolution picture with sharper images and fewer motion artifacts than conventional portables.

    Other great features include screen inversion, which flips the widescreen picture vertically so you can mount the player upside down, as in a kitchen or an RV, and Samsung's Smart Screen Brightness Control, which monitors ambient light and adjusts the LCD's backlight accordingly to improve clarity and contrast and extended your battery life. The unit's rugged disc bay ensures that the show goes on no matter how you position the player.

    Composite- and S-video outputs let you hook the player up with your home television, while its coaxial digital-audio output will channel discrete, 5.1-channel Dolby Digital and DTS surround sound to a range of audio/video receivers and surround speaker setups. For extra convenience, the AV output doubles as a switchable AV input, letting you hook up a camcorder or gaming device for portable big-screen viewing.

    What's in the Box

    3-0 out of 5 stars Why not buy a laptop instead?
    If you're looking for big screen size, for same money get a laptop with a 15" screen...and everything else that a computer has to offer over just a DVD player.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a DVD player with a screen big enough to see!
    We tryed the smaller Portable DVD players but the screens with anything under 10" are a waste of time for detail.This portable changes that, the picture is great.There are four options for display brightness level and it seems we find the display level we like for the movie feature we are watching on this machine.It's pricey but you really get to watch the movie!very happy with the unit!It came with a plastic case to store the player but I wish I could get all the assorted paraphernalia (charging cables, TV hook-up wires, etc.)that came in the box into the storage case as well as I find this stuff gets scattered.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great player except when viewing brighter movies.
    I purchased this DVD player for my daughter for airline flights. We currently own the Panasonic DVD-LS5 and decided to upgrade to a12 inch model. The problem is that my 17 month old daughter can only sit still watching a show called Boohbah and doesn't like watching it on the 5" monitor. We noticed when running it on our 15" laptop, she was fine. So, we got the 12 inch model. When I put in the DVD, the picture is was way to bright and straining on the eyes. All other DVD's look great but when it comes to certain movies with bright colors, the colors are exaggerated like stated in another review.

    "The picture quality suffers from bad black level. Imagine watching a movie that takes place in darkness and instead of the night being black it's gray. I tested a couple of CGI animation and it looked too bright that everything looked washed out. Significant lost of detail was obviously lost in bright scenes. Picture adjustments didn't work too well. Low light settings were way too low that a lot of detail in the picture was lost. Inside light settings provided the picture more sharpness and brightness but edges were exaggerated. Outside settings provided more color to the picture but looked unnatural. Standard was the best picture it provided."

    All in all, it's a great player. Just can't watch movies with bright features. ... Read more

    Fossil Wrist Net Smart Watch for MSN Direct (FX3002) Dick Tracy

    Average Customer Review: 4.0 out of 5 stars
    Electronics
    list price: $89.99

    Editorial Review

    It's a great idea, and, for the most part a great product: a watch that keeps time with atomic clock accuracy and displays useful, timely information. The Smart Watch gives you stock prices, news, and weather, and personal messages, all right on your watch face. You get all that stuff on your cell phone already, right? But the idea of the Smart Watch though is that it offers this information in glanceable form, and on a device that is always at hand. Simplicity and unobtrusiveness are key--you can rapidly navigate through all the different types of information quickly, and immediately read your text messages the moment they arrive with a discreet little beep.

    MSN Direct is the subscription service that broadcasts data to the Smart Watch via an FM signal. The first thing you have to do when you get your watch is set up an account and customize your information channels. It's a fairly quick process, though you have to jump through a few Microsoft hoops (like getting a .NET Passport). Immediate gratification junkies should be warned, however, that you most likely won't start getting any data until about 12 or more hours after set up. Also, the channels are very much a work in progress--the news I was getting initially had a random quality to it, but more recently the watch's timeliness has compared favorably with CNN.com in breaking major stories.

    Information delivered to your watch includes:

    Stock quotes: Get updates on the stocks you care about, as well as information on the major high-volume stocks and indices. News: Get headlines and the full text of local, national, international, business, entertainment, sports, health, and travel news stories.
    Time: Wrist Net watches display the current time, automatically updated for different time zones, and include a chronometer, an alarm, and a timer. You can choose from a wide variety of watch faces for just the right look.Weather: Get the latest reports for cities all over the world. Local city weather information includes current conditions, a three-day forecast, sunrise and sunset information, humidity, barometric pressure, and ultraviolet (UV) index.
    Text messages: Receive messages from friends and family through MSN Messenger version 6.0 or later. Sports: Continuous sports updates keep consumers current on game times, scores, pre- and post-game stories, and standings for their favorite collegiate and professional sports teams.
    Daily Diversions: Currently, consumers can select from Word of the Day, Quote of the Day, Born on This Day, and This Day in History. Horoscope: Consumers can receive a personalized horoscope based on their specific time and place of birth.

    The need to recharge frequently--a single charge will last two to seven days, depending on usage--has some users unhappy, but for me it is a non-issue. You charge the watch by simply placing it on its cradle, so if you set the cradle up wherever you stash the watch at night, the watch will always be charged.

    There are a few real drawbacks, however, most prominent (literally) being the size of the watch, which is on the humongous side of fashionably chunky. Another downer is the strap which is hard to close and, since it contains the watch's antenna, tends to spring open. The most serious complaint however is that reception can be sporadic--there were entire days that I got no new data at all. When MSN Direct improves service--and it has shown signs of doing so since the watch launched--they will have a truly revolutionary product on their hands (and the nation's wrists). --David Stoesz

    Pros

    • Geek factor is through the roof
    • Intuitive navigation
    • Recharging is a snap

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great watch for the big kid in you!But dont depend on it!
    The Dick Tracy watch is the coolest big kid toy around.If you always wanted a Dick Tracy watch well here is the first generation Dick Tracy watch.Its cool but not perfect.Text messaging takes 7-10 minutes to receive.Some messages NEVER arrive and are lost in transit.So for the business man that needs to depend on text messages...maybe not the best choice.The calender on watch is very limited.This to me is a big disappointment.It only holds limited info for yesterday, today and the next 6 days...so if you want to use it to check on your appointment 8 days from now ...forget it!Very limited! But if you just want to be the coolest gadget guy/girl around and you think owning a Dick Tracy watch is cool.Buy it just don't depend on it.The news, stocks, and weather seem to work well.Also at this time the service area is very limited so if you dont live in a big city like me...you may want to skip this gadget. The charging adapter is cool and unique.You just rest the watch on it and it charges automatically.Another problem is the wristband YOU CANT CHANGE IT even if you want to.It's connected to the antenna and charging device so it can never be changed...if it breaks you gotta go to Fossil for replacement.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Cool looking - but Timex Internet Messenger watch better
    These watches are cool looking - but having to recharge your watch every 3 to 7 days seems like a pain. Timex has has the Internet Messenger Watch for a couple of years. Does all the same things - stock quotes, weather, your horoscope, sports, very customizable. Also - can send reminders. Does basically all the same things - the battery lasts a lot longer. Unfortunately they have been discontinued. When you bought the watch for $100 you also got a free year of nationwide service that worked pretty much everywhere with Skytel. You got an 800with your own voicemail, and unlimited text messages.While these watches might look cool - they're more expensive and aren't really doing much new - plus coverage is a lot less limited. The Timex was was also an Ironman - waterproof - not sure if these are... It's funny how they play the technology as something new - but it's been around for several years now.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The first computer-data watch I will actually keep using
    First, I have to admit I am an incurable early adopter and gadget lover. But, regardless of that bias, I have to say this watch reaches a new level of usefulness (and coolness). (And no, I don't work for Microsoft or Fossil.) I have tried several other watches in the past that offered data storage and synching with PC data, either through a cable or through an infrared connection.I gave them up within days as clunky and impractical.With this watch, though, I can put it on, and (once the MSN Direct account was activated, which was easy)I can forget about it until I want to check the news, weather, stock quotes, time, calendar, etc.I don't have to take any steps such as dialing a cell phone to get the news; I just press a button and get headlines, and more of the story with another press.The functioning is quite user-friendly and intuitive; I have spent very little time with the reference manual.The radio signal has been fine inside my office building downtown, and I was easily able to send myself a text message from MSN.The subscription price is very reasonable. I don't mind at all sticking the watch on the charger every night; the instructions say there's no "memory" effect, so it's OK to charge it before the battery runs down.

    There have been some problems.The watch band is a little clumsy to manipulate, but it's manageable, and works OK with a little effort.The watch is a little big for my wrist, but after a couple of weeks I'm used to it, and it feels fine.The worst problem was that, after about a week, the watch stopped receiving the time signal or any data.I made numerous calls to MSN Direct tech support, and got through to them quickly, but they were unable to solve the problem.I think they were trying, but evidently were located somewhere halfway around the world, and had only minimal suggestions to make.Finally, with one quick call to Fossil, I found that the problem was that the metal band was not completely snapped together, and that the antenna therefore was not functioning.I don't recall seeing any mention of that issue in the documentation, which is not very thorough.Anyway, now it's working again with no problems.

    All in all, this is the type of product I have been waiting for.Having all this information so easily available on my wrist is, in my mind, a quantum leap forward in useful (and fun) technology.Maybe not everyone cares about having the exact time, brief weather information, and news headlines on their wrist, but if you do, you should appreciate this watch. The text messaging only allows a small number of words; so tell your friends to be brief!

    The bottom line is, it works, the service is not expensive, and it seems to be very reliable, at least in the Washington, DC metro area. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Early Adopters Pick: August 2003. The first PDA to include integrated GPS technology.

    With the power of Palm OS 5 and the dependability of Garmin GPS technology, this super PDA redefines multitasking. Its integrated software not only allows you to look up appointments and contacts, it also locates and routes you to them with voice-guidance commands. Feature highlights include: GPS receiver, MP3 player, voice recorder, infrared communication, and vibrating alarm.

    GPS
    The differentiating feature of the iQue 3600 is its integrated GPS capabilities. Garmin's innovative Que technology delivers location awareness, electronic mapping, automatic route calculation, turn-by-turn voice guidance, and map data interface to the iQue 3600. Que technology enables users to see where they are, find a street address, know where the next turn is via visual and voice guidance, get back on track when they’ve strayed off course, and navigate efficiently to their desired destination.

    Detailed Mapping
    Users can choose a configurable basemap of North America, South America, Europe, or regions in the Pacific Rim, with generalized information on highways, major city streets, highway exit services, railways, rivers, lakes, and state, provincial, and national borders. The iQue also has the added benefit of detailed street information on the included MapSource® CD-ROM, giving users the capability of looking up restaurant addresses, hotels, local attractions, transportation hubs, emergency services, and much more. Once a desired point of interest is chosen, you have the capability to view more info or even show it on the map screen. The mapping capability of the iQue 3600 makes it a versatile companion for the international frequent flyer who travels, for instance, between New York and London or San Francisco and Hong Kong.

    Customizable maps mean never getting lost again

    Powerful Organization
    The iQue 3600 is built around the Palm OS 5 platform and offers standard Palm applications, such as Address Book, Calculator, Date Book, Memo Pad, and To Do List. And there’s enough processing power to search large databases of stored information and to enhance display graphics with easy-to-read fonts and crisp electronic maps. There's also a voice recorder for making memos, quick notes, and messages. With 32 MB of built-in memory and an expansion slot, you can even store your favorite MP3s.

    The flip-up GPS antenna
    High-Tech Integration
    One of the key benefits of technology integration on the iQue 3600 is its patent-pending contact-locator feature. Enabled by Garmin's Que technology, this feature connects the Palm Address Book and Date Book to the GPS electronic map to give the user the ability to navigate directly to a specific address within the user’s contact database.

    System
    The Garmin iQue 3600 features the new Motorola DragonBall MXL ARM9 microprocessor, and boasts 32 MB DRAM. This handheld is powered by Palm OS 5, which offers the processing power to take on the most demanding mobile computing tasks, together with advanced multimedia and the wireless connectivity and security that enterprises require.

    Display
    The iQue 3600 delivers brilliant images with its 2.16-by-3.24-inch display. It has a 16-bit color display with 320 x 480 pixel resolution.

    Expansion
    Expand your iQue 3600 via its Secure Digital slot.

    Software
    The iQue 3600 comes with the following Garmin Que applications: MP3, GPS Clock, Address Lookup, Electronic Mapping, Track Log, Trip Computer, Automatic Route Generation, and Turn-by-Turn Voice Guidance, as well as these Palm OS 5 applications: Address Book, Calculator, Date Book, Expense, Mail, Memo Pad, Palm Reader, and To Do List. In addition, it includes these third-party applications: Astraware Game Pack, Documents to Go, powerOne Personal Calculator, StarCaddy, SplashPhoto, and Vindigo.

    2-0 out of 5 stars It is hard to deal with curstomer service
    If you want to buy it, just hope it won't show "route calculation error".Here is the email I sent to them last year and I am still waiting for reply.

    "Howdy!
    I called two times hoping to find answers of "route calculation error".Unfortunately the problem still exists.
    For the first time I used my new iQue 3600 during my trip to San Antonio, TX on August 6 to August 8, 2004.I was amazed at the functions the small one offered.It helped me a lot, especially in the downtown area.On my way back to home, the iQue stopped working and the "route calculation error" appeared on the screen.I had big trouble to find home back.
    After I got home, I called tech support and after several attempts I was told to reload the map.After reloading the map, the route calculation error disappeared temporarily.
    Today, August 24, I received my friend's new address and I couldn't route to her address and "route calculation error" appeared again.
    Today's customer specialist, Doug, after several attempts, still suggested to reload the map.To me it is not an option anymore to solve the problem.I can not reload the map all the time, especially when I am away on road without my computer.If I knew that I would need to reload the map so often, I would not buy it in the first place.
    Anyway you know your products better than me.I hope the problem can be solved quickly, otherwise I have to request the return of the product either to the store or to Garmin.
    Thank you.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good Product, but does have some faults.
    I bought this unit several months ago in anticipation of trip to Italy because of the detailed maps available through Garman. Well, the street detail was breathtaking! Venice is a very complex city with alleys & tiny streets that are bunched together in an impossible maze. As long a I got a clear signal (a drawback of any GPS unit)I knew EXACTLY where I was. Walking directions were right on.
    But, back stateside I started seeing some limitations with the unit: 1) Driving directions were not that great, taking you on round about routes in spite of requesting the least # of turns and/or highways (not side streets), 2) the battery life is terribly short and needs to be put back onto the cradle for re-charging, 3) it's a rather fragile unit - I'm somewhat of a klutz from time to time and have dropped the unit which then needed to be reset.
    The PDA part of this unit was a welcome bonus. I purchased a 1GB memory card which gave me the maps I needed plus plenty of extra memory. I loaded Pocket Quicken on it which enables me to keep track of my personal finances away from my desktop. Overall - worth the investment.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product
    Really nice product and worth every cent.I own a Garmin StreetPilot and have used a Palm PDA so I found this really easy to use.The ability to drag maps around to find places is amazing.

    The integrated PDA functionality really adds value.A must for anyone in sales that travels (you could actually know where your taxi is going and where to find dinner in any city).

    If you are just doing navigation for your car you could just go with a StreetPilot - a bit easier to use.My third great GPS from Garmin.
