I love my Tungsten E2 Palm Pilot!
By Reginald A. White
I have used the Palm Pilot, (Several models over the years) for a very long time. Ever since I got my first one, I have never missed an appointment, a meeting, nor forgotten an anniversary or birthday. I am so sad that they were forced out of business by the "IPhone" rage, but they interface with my computer so I can have printed copies of my monthly obligations as well as the electronic one on my belt with it's alarm function to keep me focused on busy days, and the dependability of my index of addresses and contact information for all of my friends and business associates.

They are simply indispensible - The best at what they do!
I have had Palm devices since they first came out. I currently have a desktop PC, 2 laptops, and 2 iPads. I have tried to get away from the Tungsten 2E for for years but NOTHING does what they do nearly a well as they do it. They are clearly the best appointment, calendar, contact list around. You will never be late for an appointment again. No iPad app on my $600 dollar iPad will quickly setup a repeating appointment in a complex manner like: the the 2nd Sunday every other month. No app will start to notify me with a beep 1 day, 1 week, 1 hour, or minute before the appointment or task and continue to beep me every 5 or ten minutes until I acknowledge it and either silence it with one touch or put it on snooze to remind me again.
Such a system is only good if you keep it with you, so you have it as soon as you commit to a new task and enter it immediately. The Tungsten can always be in a shirt pocket or purse my iPad cannot be. If you forget it, when you finally retrieve it, there it is beeping every 5 minutes for your appointment. No iPad app will do that.
It has a great "To do list" with priority rankings, great software so you can enter everything with a keyboard and sync it to your Tungsten. If you ever run over it with a car, get another, re-sync it and never miss a beat. This brings me to durability. I have dropped then hundreds of times and always cringe but never did more than scuff them up. I have dropped one into a storm drain grate, washed them in a front loader with laundry, dropped one in my Lilly pond and salvaged them all after drying them out. One I warped with too much heat because I got impatient and forgot to go back and check on it while drying it out. I was still able to hot sync it and buy another.
They have great battery life. If I was going out of town for less than a week, I never took my charger. I could go on and on but I will jump to the limited short-comings.
The Cons: They are older technology so less ebooks and less sharing of data, no surfing the internet, no email, etc. They have one notorious flaw where the touch screen can get so out of whack that you cannot calibrate it. This does not happen often. When it does just let it run down by running some function non-stop, then recharge it.

By K. R.
Bought this device to use for a new job that I have just started. Could not be happier with the unit I received. One thing that I will complain about - when I bought the unit, I also bought one of the Palm 2GB SD memory cards. Only to find out that this particular unit (E2) can't use that large an expansion card. So I ended up returning the 2GB card and buying two 1GB cards instead. I also bought the book, "How to Do Everything with Your Palm Powered Device" - which I found to be very helpful in minimizing my learning curve. I originally bought this device to do the standard business sort of things, but I must confess that since discovering that you can use it to read eBooks AND play MP3s - I now have a hard time going somewhere without this thing tagging along.
2-23-2009, Just an update to my original posting... I've been using my E2 now for the past 18 months or so on a daily basis... and it's still running fine.
