  • 5 starsDoes what it is supposed to do.

    It took some time to get used to mounting the Palm onto the device, but this cable is exactly what I needed for syncing between my laptop and my Palm m130. Due to the shortness of the cable, it would not be useful if you had to be very far away from your computer (even a desktop computer under your desk), but it is well suited to laptop computing when you are actually working from your lap. This is actually preferable to a cradle in the on-the-lap on-the-bed type situation, as a regular cradle would tip over or be too cumbersome.

  • 3 starsawkward fit

    I've had this for less than a month, and already one of the 2 metal contacts has broken off. I bought the cable after reading the reviews on the cradle, which said it was awkward to fit the Palm into the cradle and that the cable would work better. I find the cable fit is tenuous at best (even with both contacts), and the fact that I'm already going to have to get a new one (or a cradle instead) is not a good sign.

  • 2 starsEssential for travelers but flimsy design

    This is one of those products that you really need if you bring your Palm on travel a lot but wish it was designed a heck of a lot better. I use it almost every day on my home computer and pack it with my laptop on travel. The lack of an AC adapter brick is a real advantage, as you can charge your Palm and hotsync through the single USB cable. (Why couldn't they do that with the regular cradle also?) And once connected, it works very nicely.

    Notice that I wrote "once connected", as that is much easier said than done. The two very small clips barely hang on to the Palm when attached, so the slightest jostle can disrupt the connection. The other reviewers weren't kidding when they stated that you have to use this on a flat undisturbed surface so that the connection can be maintained. I always have to check that the green light on the Palm is actually on, even though it may look like the cable is seated properly. I also agree that the flismy design of the clips make it a real possibility that they can break off with regular use.

    Palm really needs to do a better job of designing its accessories.
