What is it you like about the HandyTechs?
Getting back to the original question: As for me, I've never had the nerve
to ask for an 80-character display so don't miss the (to me extravagant)
length. 40 is the length of a braille printed page and I've always found
that adequate. (As far as that goes, before the advent of grade 2 books on
the internet I was happy with a 12-character display, though I doubt I would
I've never seen any of these wireless ones that use Bluetooth but the idea
is intriguing. Still, if you're thinking of one that will stay in one place
a cabled display isn't a bad idea probably. If you might be carrying a
laptop and a display then you might want to see whether there's an easy
option to carry them both conveniently.
But if you're going to be doing a lot of traveling a notetaker with a
detachable display might be good. The PAC Mate fits together so solidly
you'd never know the display was detachable, but it is and can be used (via
USB cable) with a regular computer.
