I actually meant to write that I had a parrot, but returned it because it crashed frequently, and the batteries were constantly dieing. I had it a long time ago, so they may have improved upon it, I don't know.
The TADI does sound a lot better! I hadn't heard of it until the review on blind cool tech.
Hmmm! Megan, so you're the second person I have heard say that. I wonder about their quality control. It is a lot to ask for such a low price. That makes me wonder how reliable they are. I suspect that if you get one that works, it will work for a long time. It would appear, however, that there might be some lemons out there. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. One question in case I decide to purchase one. Did you have trouble using the very small keys? I don't imagine it is something you can easily take notes on and it sounded, in the great podcast on this, that even finding specific keys can prove difficult. Any comments would be appreciated.

I had one of these as well, but decided to return it because it crashed frequently and didn't hold a charge.
