Toshiba e310 Pocket PC Review
4 Star Review  mobiletechreview.com - Jul 30, 2002

The e310 was the first "affordable" Pocket PC device, and lists for $399 (you'll find it for a bit less at competitive retailers). Why was it cheap? 1) It has only 32 megs of built-in RAM which is also true of some other lower-priced and not so lower-priced PDAs. Generally, folks are wanting 64 megs these days, but that can put a Pocket PC out of price range for some buyers. 2) While all Pocket PCs (except the iPAQ which uses a separately purchased expansion sleeve to accomodate CF cards) have CompactFlash (CF) card slots, this unit does not have one. It does have one SD (Secure Digital) card slot for memory expansion and I/O card such as the Toshiba Bluetooth SD card. 3) The 3rd party software bundle is not as generous as that of the Jornada and iPAQs.

Strengths: Great Screen, Programs, OS, OVERALL AWESOME!

Weakness: battery life is 7 hours (7-8)

AWESOME! I looove everything about this PPC! The maker is great, I have a Sattelite (laptop) and its overall just Great! Good features :D. The screen size, small overall size, and great functions make this better than the IPAQ and the Jornada and the Dell series Axims.

4 Star Review   By member bjbolduc - Mar 28, 2003   

Strengths: Excellent integration with Outlook and Office programs. Good screen. Excellent portable-Office functionality.

Weakness: Battery life could be a little more robust.

Migrated from the Palm world, and very pleased with product. Very good unit. Can fit in a shirt pocket, as does a Palm. Block recognition very close to Palm grafitti writing, which makes transition easier. Some cool additions include ability to play MP3 files and easy integration with office programs - can bring spreadsheets and doc files along for reference or modification. Can respond to emails during long meetings.

3 Star Review   By member online_buyer_since_1996 - Nov 5, 2002   

Strengths: It is so thin, Palm looks like a giant next to this PPC. 206 MHz processor is more than enough speed for most of the apps. Price. Paid $200 at PCnation.com.

Weakness: Screen quality is nominal. 32 MB storage is too small. No CF, SDs are expensive.

Well the price I paid is lower than most of the PALMs out there. 206 Mhz porcessor handles videos fine. Screen quality is considerably low comparing to my old CASIO 125 with 150MHz. But size matters with PDAs. Smaller is better. In your shirt pocket, e310 is almost invisible. Gotta get a SD card if you want expandibility and more storage for videos. Overall, this is a good machine for beginners. But if you are novice or above go for e740 or Genio-e.

4 Star Review   By member myafchak - Oct 29, 2002   

Strengths: Screen size, resoultion and color. MP3 playback. Good assortment of Apps. Light weight and compact.

Weakness: Small base memory. No expansion slots (i.e. Compact flash.) No internal modem. Expensive wireless networking option.

This Pocket PC has most of the apps you'd expect and some features like MP3 playback that make it a well rounded investment. Battery life is exceptional for a device in this portable category. Small base memory is limiting, especially if you want to store MP3 songs. You will definitely need an additional SD memory card. No modem makes connecting to the internet impossible unless cradled and connected to your PC.

4 Star Review   By member johnb210 - Sep 24, 2002   

Strengths: Extremely thin, light. Long lasting battery. Good price.

Weakness: No Compact Flash slot.

This is a fantastic little unit that serves my needs very well. I use the unit many times a day for it's calendar, tasks, and contacts functions. I also use Pocket Excel for relatively simple calculations and am reading books with Microsoft Reader, and the unit meets my every expectation. The side scrolling thumb wheel is great for reading books as you can switch hands for page turns when you get tired of holding the unit one way or another. I find it significantly more comfortable than a paper novel. I put the unit in it's cradle probably every one or two days, and haven't yet had the battery even run below 40% with regular usage and several hours of book reading over a weekend. Excellent deal and a great base-line PDA.

5 Star Review   By member shahnr - Sep 15, 2002   

Strengths: Color screen, low price, form factor unlike others

Weakness: could have better battery life

After being a faithful Palm Vx aficionado for many years, the decision to switch to PocketPC was difficult. Toshiba's e310, however, was a no-brainer-- especially with the Toshiba rebate currently in effect through October. Although a little boxy-looking naked, it's a work of art when wrapped in a nice leather case e.g. by Krusell. Furthermore, battery life when on the brightest screen setting (a pleasure to view) is suboptimal, but an inexpensive travel charger is a nice solution. Finally, memory is sufficient for the basics, but the tiny SD slot is great for the now plentiful and cheap memory upgrades available. In sum, the e310 is a great starter PocketPC, and likely also sufficient for the needs of many intermediate-level users.

5 Star Review   By member bdub2 - May 30, 2002   

Strengths: Excellent graphics, fast processor, crisp clear colors, thin and light.

Weakness: Battery life slightly shorter than more expensive pocket pcs

I bought the Toshiba E310 several weeks ago after an exhaustive search of the available pocket pc's. What was more amazing was the fact that reviews of this product are few and far between. I came across the E310 while shopping at Circuit City and was almost immeadiately sold. The screen is cristal clear, and has the best front lighting of any pc I've seen including the more expensive Compaq and Cassio. It has the same fast processor and is lighting fast in a case that is half as thick as the others. It has run Windows CE flawlessly and does everything the more expensive pocket pc's do. I have used the smart media slot to load all of my personal pictures that would have normally been in my twisted and smashed wallet and the colors are unbelievable. I run my own restoration company and have found dozens of commercial uses for the E310 as well my personal uses. When you total all of the E310's features and consider it is $100 to $150 less expensive then all other pocket pc's out there the choice is a simple one. Incidently, I have read one review out of the dozen and half that I could find about the E310 that was negative and it was from someone who bought the E310 to play all sorts of games and wasn't happy with its performance. Please note that none of the available pocket pc's perform this duty well. If you purchase the E310 you won't be disappointed
