Works but isn't perfect – Retractable Data Sync and Charging Cable for Palm Treo 650 Reviews

Works as expected with my Treo 650. Charges the phone and syncs OK.
There is no hotsync button on the cable like there is in the original so you'll need to initiate syncs from the phone's application menus. The cable is quite thin and there is no bending protection for it in the connectors so I don't expect this to last for very long especially if you carry it with you.
The retracting coil can be easily removed in 30 seconds with a screwdriver giving you a lighter weight straight cable of about 50 cm in length. This will probably also extend the life of the cable as there is less weight and strain on the cable.
Does the job at a low price. Could be slightly better in details.
