I need some advice on which model to pick the NZ90 ($345) or the NX80 ($300) both listed as refurbished on the Sony site. I have a NX73 and love the clamshell design and screen but this morning I had screen problems and it looks like a month before I get it back from repair. I use my Clie for textbooks (.pdf) and I would like to use it for Internet access (I have the card but my web access has not been that good I cant seem to get past the first page on any site). As far as the camera function I also carry a Minox (www.minox.org) so for pictures I still prefer German technology from the 1950s. I have thought about using Bluetooth but have yet to get anything that uses that application. I have been reading the boards for over two years and have gotten some great advice so I hope that someone can give me some suggestions.
A month ago i have also same confusion.....
But all inteligent present here solve my problem.
I take home my nx 80 for 381$ on ebay.At that time i have option for Nz92 for less price.But i opted for Nx 80 beacuse...
Following three major plus and minus i found in this two models convinent for my Useage.
Nx = more memory
Nz = Better camera
Nx = Better battery life
U will find lots of information on this two models here.
Unless bluetooth or the difference in cameras (NZ 2mp with flash vs NX 1.3mp with capture light) are important to you, everthing else seems to favor the NX80 IMO. NX benefits are, more memory, better compatibility with accessories, native support for CF memory cards, better battery life, better screen, lighter weight, smaller form factor.
My Sony is a NX80, if I fail to mention it in my posts related to performance or compatibility issues.
I looked at the NX90 also when I upgraded. NX80 won out. Better look and feel, not as expensive, and I felt more "bang for the buck". The NX80 seems to have become the real workhorse of the Sony line. Its amazing they didn't recognize this and expand on that line.
