Pros nothing
Cons Dreadful support
Recommended it? No

Though relatively a new device (2003) is not supported anymore by HP.
Bought one three years ago, then upgraded to Mobile 2003, since then I'm able to connect to WLAN's. ROM upgrade does not work, so does HP's support.
Shame on them.

iPaq 5455 is a barely passable unit, not great for the money

byburbsofny Jul 6, 2004

Pros good color screen, nice idea
Cons disappointing build quality and reliablity issues, high price
Recommended it? No

To begin, let me say that this is my second PDA (both have been iPaq's). My first was the premier PocketPC unit from Compaq, before they merged with HP. I liked the first unit much more than this one and also thought that it was much more reliable. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around?

I'm Disappointed

Pros WIFI works well
Cons too finicky poor battery life too many resets needed
Recommended it? No

I tried and I tried, but I give, uncle. Stick me with a fork, I'm done. This is the most that I've paid for so little in my life. Disappointing is putting it mildly. HP needs to be ashamed of themselves.

First, there are a ton of bugs. I sync at home and at the office. I can't go from one... Read full review »

Pros Good looks, good brain, good tools.
Cons Battery life, expensive accessories
Recommended it? Yes

I can't say enough good things about this little device. It keeps my schedule, transports documents to and from the office, shoots my business card at any other handheld owner, plays SEGA games, allows me to read books, keeps my bank information, allows me to manage expense accounts, backup TV...

Pros Bluetooth, synchronization with Outlook, Screen visible in direct sunlight
Cons Some features are a little glitchy. A couple of things just don't work.
Recommended it? Yes

After reading several other reviews of the iPAQ 5455 it became apparent that it does so many things that everybody seems to have different reasons for getting it. Some people who gave it poor reviews seemed to have gotten it with different uses in mind than I had. So maybe I should state what my... Read full review »

Pros Wireless, Fingerprint Reader, Detachable Battery
Cons Not really a PC, Ability of Data Loss Screen Size
Recommended it? Yes

Where did PDA's come from, and look where they are going. At one time, they were there to store appointments and work as a Rolodex. Now, they have become a glorified Rolodex.

The next generations of PDA's are called Pocket PC's. They come with a simplified version of Microsoft Windows,... Read full review »


probably great product, just horrible software.

After several days of comparing pocket pc's i decided the 5455 was what i had to have to replace my older clie`. well i will say that the construction is solid, the screen is nice and bright, and it has a lot of features. however it amazes me that the deep pockets at microsoft still can't get it...

Great for power PDA users

bywombat2 Jun 6, 2003
18 Helpfuls 19 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Great feature set, good construction, well-supported
Cons Physically large compared with many PDAs
Recommended it? Yes

If you want a PDA to keep track of appointments and contacts, most will do. A Palm Zire costs $99 (retail) and can handle those tasks with ease.

However, some of us want our PDAs to do a lot more. If you want the ultimate in pocketable power and versatility, at the moment (June 2003), the... Read full review »

Pros Biometric Sercurity, Bluetooth, WiFi, 64mb Memory
Cons No CompactFlash Slot. WiFi barely works, very agrivating. High resolution would be better
Recommended it? No

When reading the specs of the h5455 I was excited about this product to say the least. The cornucopia of features in this device made it paragon of technological excellence. As soon as I scrounged up the money for it, I got it. The only apparent drawback was the lack of a CompactFlash slot, but I... Read full review »


This is a great BETA PDA

Pros remote control, wlan, blue tooth, good features
Cons a lot of errors and lag!
Recommended it? No

Don't get me wrong this is the best pda out on the market. Its features like pocket word and nevo (universal remote) make it a great pda but it doesn't come without its faults. The pda still has a lot of bugs to work out. I have had many problems with the pda. It seems that hp came out with a great... Read full review »

Palm vs. PocketPC (skip if you've already decided)
I got my first PDA in 1996. It was the US Robotics Palm Pilot with a monochrome screen. Back then, the Palm ran on AAA batteries. It was boring and colorless. I trusted my whole life to it and it served me well. It was simple, and its... Read full review »

Cons Webpages arent perfect but there still the best out of any palm.
Recommended it? Yes

Im very pleased with this PDA Its very nice.. I love the fingerprint scanner for security (its faster than putting in a password or puttign a 4 digit code to get in plus less hackable to get in).

I was reading how someone didnt like the fingerprint scanner and if you dont like it you can... Read full review »

Too many pros to list. The fingerscanner is excellent and works really well. I thought there might be problems with finger scanning and recognition but have not had a problem with it yet. Very reliable, powerful and stable unit. Read full review »
