Summary: This pda is hard to set up and use unless you're using only the main functions such as calendar, contacts, note pad and memos. The pda won't recognize the SD card, which you have to have for Real Player. It keeps saying it can't connect to my internet when I'm already on it,to completely install some things. I don't think it's very use-friendly and I'm not going to be able to use a lot of the programs available.
Summary: The touch screen broke after 8 months. Replaced whole unit and 2nd E2 touch screen went bad after 4 months!! I babied it but the touch screen still failed!! It starts by activating the line below/above where you touch. It gets twitchy and will jump around where you touch. When you try to re-calibrate the touchscreen, it will keep asking you to endlessly touch the points on the screen over and over. Finally, you try to activate ABC or 123 and all it gives you is ".
Pros: Nice organizer. Great features. Compact and easy to use.
Cons: Touch screen fails often. Can't handle more than 1GB memory card.
Summary: When the battery in my Sony Clie could no longer hold a charge, and could only be used if it were left in the cradle all the time, I learned that only a Sony tech could install a new battery and that the thing would have to be shipped to California. In addition, Sony would charge $150.- for the privilege.
So, I decided instead to buy the Palm Tungsten E2, which I found on sale for the astonishingly low price of $150.
Summary: After 4 months mine went dead. Palm wanted $75 to look at it. I found a website that instructed me to take it apart and unplug the battery. It wasn't easy but it worked. I have to repeat the process about once a month.
Summary: I have had an e2 and a palm lifedrive in the last 2 years... both had loving carre and both are BROKEN... Palm will gladly repair it for $150 plus shipping ... they dont Last ... look elsewhere!!!
Pros: when it works it is ok ... but it wont last
Cons: 90 day warrenty on a product that WILL break
Summary: This really started out to be a great tool. I needed something like this to enter data for work. It really worked flawlessly for about eight months and then the trouble started. Tech support said to do a hard refresh and re center the touch pad. No joy Went back to them and got no response at all. WOULD NOT BUY ANOTHER PALM TOOL.
Pros: When first bought this was my answer to all of my desires. It had a crisp display and most of the features that I needed. Touch pad was extremely sensitive and accurate.
Cons: Eight months later, the touch screen malfunctioned. Could not enter data in the lower portion of the screen. No data could be entered except via computer interface. Tech support was NO help.
