Anonymous, Newegg
17 March 2008

The Palm one Tungsten e2 sucks.

Jerjuan M., Newegg
17 November 2007
  • Summary: You dont want one of these.
  • Pros: Edits word documents and power points, and has a web browser. Responds to touch very well. comes with a keyboard and lots of chargers but no case.
  • Cons: There is no useful software that does not make the os crash. Browser does not play flash videos, or any other for that matter. NO WIFI and the screen is very small due to the graffitti 2 touch pad.

Same flaw with other reviews

Jaeyoung K., Newegg
2 November 2007
  • Summary: It was my first upgrade from my Palm V (yes, 2MB memory one, not Vx), but I regret. I need another Palm V for basic comupting.
  • Pros: Cheap and basic Palm computing. Bright and nice color screen.
  • Cons: I couldn't help writing after reading some other people's reviews. I have the same problem with my E2. They are: - very loud humming noise (around 5kHz) when the screen is on. - the digitizer alignment can't be fixed. I should guess 20 pixels off from what it points. It's very hard to get into al...

not worth it...

24 November 2006
  • Summary: I've had my unit for 3 months it has been nothing but trouble. The device keeps getting a fatal error requiring me to do hard resets. Be aware that the system only works with a 1 gig or less SD cards. I would not recommend this product due to the unstable software and limited functionality.
  • Pros: large display, easy to navigate, display layout.
  • Cons: software is unstable, can't use 2 gig SD card, music player functions are too basic, expense software is limited.

MP3 Player too complicated

Rhett W., Newegg
29 April 2006
  • Summary: When will buying $xxx worth of electroniics get you something that can play music and hold a calander without having a 40 hour learning curve.
  • Pros: Good that it combines PDA and Music Capabilities.
  • Cons: Many hoops to jump through with Real Player and Palm to get the music portion up and running. Does not recognize all SD cards. Relying on realplayer for the music is not a good idea. Realplayer is combersome and full of commercials. Volume control when using headphones does not give user muich co...

Two failed Tungsten E2s

Robert W., Newegg
11 February 2006
  • Summary: Since other manufacturers have dropped out of the Palm OS market, I'll probably choose to go with a Pocket PC PDA.
  • Pros: Fast, good display, lots of available software.
  • Cons: I have had rwo E2s and one E, and all three have failed. The E just stopped working, and several calls to tech support couldn't fix it. I replaced it with an E2, because the cost of service after 90 days was close to the cost of a new unit. My new E2 had problems with the navigation button within...

Palm Tungsten E2

highsagegrump, PriceGrabber
21 May 2005
  • Summary: This is equivalent to a reskinned/cased ZIRE 72 with a slower Processor; not enough memory; & no junk toy camera. It should have had Processor & built in RAM nearer to T5 especially considering the comparative costs. This release HAS to be the PALM equivalent of MS WINDOWS ME.
  • Pros: Battery MAY last longer than original Tungsten E.
  • Cons: Charger, Sync Cable CHANGED so as not to be compatible with original Tungsten E. Op Manual PDF on CD Does NOT tell how to reset & CLEAR & CLEAN Flash Memory. Too much 'feature BLOAT'.

  • Excerpt: A great device -- until the LCD registration to the touchpad fails 5 months after buying the device. With a 3 month warranty and a $149 repair fee afterwards (the price of a new device!), good luck.

Palm E2

J. Gilmore, Amazon
28 August 2005
  • Summary: Not same quality as my previous Tungsten T although cheap. Cannot centre writing area which causes a lot of problems particularly using graffiti.Struggling on with it but not sure i would get another although have used Palms since 91. Basic functions remain very good just let down by faulty setting.
