    Works with my old HP 620LX PDA

    posted by larrysy on 01/06/2008 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cons:
    -Caveat emptor - because it required the driver software from the disk it came with - it may not work on other OS.
