For a closer look at the PDA's file transfer message, click the image above.
During the testing of the U5-IrDA a Palm Tungsten E was used for a file transfer. After the U5-IrDA was installed and the system IR disabled, an Excel file was transferred from the PC to the PDA via the USB U5-IrDA (or IR-Wand). Your PDA's system will ask if you want to accept the file being transferred. During the transfer your screen will show your file(s) being transferred and a wireless iconInfrared device icon for the usb U5-IrDA adapter will become visible in your system tray. The icon to the right shows the presence of another IR (infrared) device .

U5-IrDA usb infrared adapter testimonial

Using the U5-IrDA was pretty cool! If you need to transport data quickly, this is the tool to help you do it. I used the usb adapter for infrared transfer to bring some files with me rather than copying to CD-ROM because There wasn't going to be a PC available where the files were going to be viewed. To start, the setup and functionality of the U5-IrDA was flawless in that the PDA that I used was found right away meaning that the usb infrared adapter reacts very quickly to other IR devices within it 1 meter range. The end result was a quick data transfer of a document for my clients to review before final draft. The convenience of this was much better than bringing the laptop with me. Any changes I made were then uploaded to the pc using the same method.

I definitely recommend the U5-IrDA usb infrared adapter for convenience, quick data transfers for both non IR and IR enabled computers.
