Zire 72: More troubles then fun.

by fryingtomatoes / October 25, 2004 10:45 AM PDT

Let?s see...
I bought my zire 72 at the beginning of the school year hoping this would help me organize my everyday tasks. Which it has. But there are a lot of problems I have been having with it. For one thing the paint started chipping off slowly and finally I was fed up with it. I scratched off all of the paint. It did look like a nice metal but there was a little haziness on the metal which was the glue. So now there is a big ugly blobs all over my Zire from that crappy paint job. And I have had another problem with my zire. When I take smaller pictures lower then the highest size there is a couple of lines at the top of the picture. That is not cool. I think it just might have been from my carelessness, but I?m just not sure. Does anybody have this problem too? Please write back soon.

I don't really take pix with the camera too much (I have a digital camera) but the peeling paint is an issue with this Palm. Supposedly, the newest ones they're shipping do not do this. I called & they said that they will fix it for me, after I send it to them. There are other options, too... give them a call.

Goo Gone

Luckily, the blue has not peeled much off mine, but I certainly sympathize with you. For $300 that stuff ought to be permanent.

Try Goo Gone on the glue. It's a general purpose glue remover available at any hardware store. The usual caveat about trying it on a non-visible portion first apply. Try it at your own risk, but the stuff has never failed me. If my blue paint peels off, I'm going to use the Goo Gone.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
