Its not perfect, but I believe its the best value for money among the
current PPCs.

I have been using one for more than a year already. Its got some quirks like
the occasional turn-on by itself, the HP Protect problem (most people
including me turn this feature off) , but you could look for workarounds in
the HP Support Forums.

Hope this helps, eh ;-)

When you use an SD/CF card it will drain the batteries within a few
short hours. So when it comes to CF/SD cards it is next to useless.

Supposedly there is a fix but i've never gotten it to work.
