Beresford TC-7520 Review

 

A while ago, some readers asked for a comparison of some of the DACs I had reviewed to the popular TC-7520 DAC. I wasn't very familiar with the Beresford TC-7520 DAC at that time, but Jeff Tomerlin at Beresford was kind enough to send me a sample unit...

The TC-7520 represents a fairly unique combination of features at an equally unique price point. Most of the recent DACs I’ve reviewed are either on the $300+ or the $100+ price bracket. The TC-7520, is very attractive for $279, and its versatility in...

RIM BlackBerry 7520 (Sprint)

 

I have been forced to live with Nextel with a few diffrent company provided phones. I have had service with all the cell compaines.... Nextel is the worst customer service and cell service. But when your company hands you a free phone, you don't complain.

Intuitve menu, lots of features

Big, lame antenna, BAD Signal on Nextel

This device is cool for the intermediate user. I was totally unimpressed with the 7520 as opposed to T-mobiles 7290 which by the way i gave up to get this one. Its ridiculously slow, most times its not in service range so no calls , no email, and...

Excellent PIM & Phone, but battery could be better

 

Having owned multiple Palm OS devices and Pocket PC devices, this was a change and was bought because it's the only SmartPhone that Nextel offers. Getting used to it from a Pocket PC was tough, but now that I've grown used to it, I'm very pleased with...

Great Organizational Tool, Strong Integration

I feel that I'm always charging it, so I have the high-cap battery on the way
