They have this item listed multiple times in EBay’s review section, one of which has other EBay reviewers, too. I have copied my review on all the places the item’s listed. There are many professionals’ reviews on the web, too.
I've owned other PDAs and done extensive research before I bought my Hx4700. This PDA is by far one of the best. Its brightness and clarity is impressive. Its metal body, fast processor, and two memory card slots deliver all the access to storage/applications I need. I don't like the limitations some PDAs have with only an SD slot. My Compact Flash GPS device would have been useless. I've read the Hx4700 is compatible w/the higher Gig cards, too. I am using 1 Gig in each slot. It locks on to Wi-Fi quickly and has great range. The Infra-Red is compatible w/my older wireless keyboard (I did have to update from the keyboard's website and run the PDA in landscape). It also has Blue-Tooth capabilities.
I upgraded the OS to Mobile 5 (HP's website-$40). I have also seen upgrades on EBay for far less (I don't know anything about the sellers' reputations). There are many advantages of Mobile 5, one of which is it keeps the PDA's memory when the battery dies w/out the need to backup/recover. This saves battery, too (professional reviews on the web).
I am a firm supporter of the Pocket PC format. The handwriting recog/transcriber is full screen. It will convert both cursive and printed handwritten messages to type. (Palm gives you a small place to write. It's not full screen and is a small one-line window. In addition, you have to learn its writing symbols! I've used Palm PDAs (never owned one) and don't understand those who swear by the format).
The HX4700's touch screen works well and I've not had to re-align it(I do re-align once a week out of habit from previous PDAs). It is a larger and heavier PDA. However, in my opinion the smaller PDAs have the feel of being too compact and fragile. I don't feel comfortable putting a PDA in my pocket. PDAs are just too expensive to take risks with, even using metal cases. My leather case I got with the PDA (EBay auction) is excellent protection. However, this model is too big for most pockets if that's what your intending. This model feels like a well-built tank. All my applications and hardware work well on the system (Directional Software, Games, Compact Flash GPS, Keyboard, etc.).
The only negative reviews I've read on the web refered to the touch pad on the bottom of the PDA. I don't use the pad much since most applications are done through the touch-screen. When I've used the touch pad to play some of the more challenging video games I found it took me a little while to get use to it. It's not really been an issue, though. I found it serves its purpose.
Why not a laptop? I use laptops and computers extensively (computer teacher). However, I like the ability and freedom to do applications without lugging around a bulky laptop. I can't go around the building opening up a laptop all the time. It could also easily get damaged or stolen (yes, a PDA can be stolen, too, but for me it’s easier to keep with me since it’s smaller). In addition, laptops are extremely fragile. My PDA is very well-protected in its case. If you have a knowledge base and use technology extensively you'll get a lot of use from this device. I've found mine an excellent tool and use it everyday. I highly recommend the Hx4700!
After upgrading to WM6.1 from xda this machine runs like a Ferrari.
No matter what you throw at it...A2DP (bluetooth wireless stereo audio streaming), Skype, PocketTV, SlingPlayer...the unit works literally like a "pocket" pc. Unlike all other PPCs this device can do more than one task at once!
The high-res screen is stunning and still not surpassed today by most units...ditto for cpu.
I had this device before and offered it to one of my friends. I started to use the Dell Axim x51V because it seemed to be technologically one step superior. But very soon I realized that the screen size was important for me. I got a used one on Ebay, it was being sold as broken, I fixed it, and now I use it to review my stuff before submission. Sometimes I watch movies, here the quality is very good. I also play some basic pocket pc games. In a general sense I love the device.
The only drawback is that like most of Windows Pocket PC it gets boring. The small RAM size make it necessary to soft reset often. In order to take full advantage of it as a device it requires a lot of internet searching which sometimes can take the whole day to find and answer to a simple question.
In a broader sense one need to love the hx4700 to take advantage of its features.
Good device though.
This Device is not only very powerful it is a very FAST PDA capable of running windows mobile 6.1 with ease and the touch pad for mouse functions turns this PDA into a true pocket computer. As Always it has the HP robust construction and the VGA Screen is Beautiful!
Love the large screen and vivid colors. Use of the HX4700 is similar to other iPaqs. Button use took a bit to figure out and understand. The standard program/feature launch buttons act like two buttons each, where one program is launched with the touch of the button and another feature is activated when holding the same button. Changing the screen orientation is a nice feature, but will take getting used to. The touch/mouse pad is probably the only downfall. The response is sometimes erratic when used in different programs. The toggle button is better for scrolling up/down/across when the picture is larger than the screen. Memory and internal storage is more than sufficient. The use of a compact flash card and a secure digital card at the same time allows for plenty of storage. Haven't been able to use all the feature yet (watch movies, listen to music), but have high confidence that all will work well.
