I started with PocketMac back when they were the only game in town for syncing my AudioVox SMT5600 WM Smartphone. It stank. Rarely ever worked or even connected to the phone. And I see a lot hasn't changed with PocketMac... it still doesn't seem like an integrated app - lots of separate sync apps bounce around in the dock and such. But when it worked, it got the job done.
Markspace eventually came out with MissingSync for WM. The first version or two - not so great. But by the time WM5 devices came along and MarkSpace caught up with version 3, it was pretty solid, save for Bluetooth which is still flakey.
I've tried PM and MS for BlackBerry. PocketMac hasn't changed much from the early Windows Mobile days, but when it works, it works.
MissingSync's first version for BlackBerry sort of works pretty well, save fro the calendard problem noted above. It's also missing a lot of features that I think need to be there such as direct support for Entourage and application installation. So here's hoping that Markspace stays true to history and gets a more solid, fully featured version of MissingSync for BB out ASAP!!!
In the meantime, I think I'm going to have to go back to PocketMac as well.
BTW, MissincSync for Palm is ROCK SOLID! Sometimes I miss the Palm OS just for that reason. It just worked. It was always fast and Mac support was awesome. I guess that's what happens when you're a dinosaur though. Well, wait... actually my 650 did crash a lot, but at least it rebooted and was ready to go automatically! Heh.
