This is a small, cheap organiser with a difference...

The difference?
It comes with a docking base to connect it to a PC for synchronizing data.

Let's dig around a litle bit and see what we've got here:

And now for the rest...
The backlight is noisy, AND can be activated even if the unit is off! The case is good, with solid hinges and lock, EXCEPT for one thing, there's two 'feet' that fits into slots in the docking base. These feet are liable to cause problems if it's stored in a shirt pocket or an inside pocket in a jacket.
The [Cancel] button is in an unusual place, and there's TWO enter/return keys...
There's no direct way to adjust screen contrast. (you have to press the [Options] key, then either 1 or Enter before you adjust with up and down arrows.)
As for the base, it's good enough, fits well, but on the lighter side, so it might be a good idea to Velcro it into place.

I haven't downloaded the PC software or the manual yet, so I don't know how good that is yet.
