StarTac cable $ 36 (including shipping)
DocToGo $ 50
Targus Case $ 20
Fisher Bullet

Write Rights $ 25 (???)
AAA batteries $ 12 (borrowed from reply above -
but 1 pack has lasted 6 months)
Grand Total
$559
(Too bad I can't submit my poll again!)

Except for the initial Visor and the Visor phone I have not paid full price for any module, getting them on sale at Compusa or with rebate. (backup, flash, Xircom modem, Eyemodule1)

How much have I spent? Probably more than I want to know, and I am pretty sure I am not done yet.. !

So far the list for me is:

Prism ~ 300
Stowaway ~ 100
Backup module ~ 40
Flip Clip ~ 15
Minstrel modem with service ~ 480 (service contract)
EB slipper ~ 30
Extea Cradel ~ 20 (for Visor Deluxe, then modified)

Total ~ (too much)
So in the end, I've spent WAY too much on my visor considering it was meant to be a small excursion in the begenning.

Rounding things off, so far...

Basics:
200- Visor (Deluxe, Ice)
100- Stowaway keyboard
30- Matchbook drive
30- 16Mb CompactFlash card
20- "Visor for Dummies"
20- "Everything you wanted to... Visor" (I ordered the 'Dummies', then saw the 'Everything' in the store, figured I'd keep one and return the other, but like both. Sheesh!
20- cheap cases (2 under $10 from Amazon.com, 1 from Duluth Trading. OK, but what I really needed was the...
30- RhinoSkin 1100 case
75- software (WordSmith, MobileDB, MyBible, FileMover, etc.)
20- 5 pack of styli, and clearance 4-in-1 stylus pen
30- WriteRights and cleaning kit.
$575 total (so far!)

On-Going:
Batteries, I buy Walgreens or Sanyo on-sale. Read Consumer Reports article on batteries- many of these 'off brands' are made by the big boys and last just as well for a fraction fo the cost!

Future:
- Probably another case, such as a slipper or shock case
- An IRdA attachment to let me beam to my existing printer AND/OR an IRdA ready portable printer (Canon BJC-50, 55, or 85, probaly used or rebuilt)
- A way to hot-sych at work (computer does not have USB, OR a free serial port, and is on a network. Gota be a way!)
- A way to hot-synch on my old lap-top, preferably USB (to standardize cables, etc.)
- Whatever modules go on sale when I have some $$ after all this!

Regrets:
- The books. After reading them both, being here, and visiting a few other sites, I am not sure I needed either of them!
- The Matchbook drive set-up. I wonder if I should have gone with a back-up module instead. The CF card does protrude just a tad, and prevents the snap cover from being on the back, etc.
- The intial cases. Although not a lot of $$, I shoulda waited and analysed my needs better.

32Mb CF Card
PCMCIA CF Adapter

I've had a few, but then again too few to mention.

There's probably other stuff I'm forgetting, as well.

Wow, I forgot to add software into my list, so I guess add about another 100-150 to what I put down above. Still, the total is WAY too much .

I'd really prefer not to think about it.

Ah, what the hell. I'm rounding off on these numbers, because I'm too lazy to really look up what I really spent.

Visor Deluxe - $240 something.
Visor Prism - $449
Innopak 2V - $50
Minstrel S - Nothing up front, but 39.99 a month.
Springport modem - $100, after I get (someday) my CompUSA rebate.
Eyemodule 1 - $150
Stowaway - $90
Backup Module - $40
Various cases (RhinoPak 1100, Vaja, Slipper) - $250
Extra Cradle - $25(?)
Custom Styli (more than one) $50
Misc. Software - $100 (WAG)

Total: Over $1,500.

On the credit side, I think I'm going to sell my original Deluxe and maybe the Springport, so I'll recoupe something. On the debit side, I'll probably use the dough I get from selling that stuff to buy a Thinmodem+.

JEEEZZZZ! I'm a 15 Year old PDA Geek who spends all his hard earned cash on Friking Technology. I'm going to faint now. *THUMP*


I didn't realize there were going to be so many big spenders out there when I created this poll... I should have had increments of $125 or $150 instead of $75! My theory was that people would tend to spend as much on accessories as they did on their PDA... so much for that...
