The Tungsten T5 is an acquired taste

Pros quite convenient, practical features, very user-friendly
Cons no resale value
Recommended it? Yes

I've had my T5 for about a year and a half by now. I bought it for its convenient size, applications and features that were just perfect for a professor like me. I could create lesson plans, record grades, save files, view presentations, as well as keep personal picture files and music. However, I... Read full review »


Palm Tech Support

Pros Generally a good product
Cons Horrible Telephone Tech Support
Recommended it? No

I just want to agree with the comment on how bad Palm telephone tech support is. They have obviously outsourced their support, and the call center has hired people who cannot understand the questions even if you speak slowly and clearly.

They also spend the first 5 minutes of the call... Read full review »


Don't be fooled by its looks!

Pros Sleek looks, great screen
Cons Problematic, breaks down easily
Recommended it? No

I've had this PDA for less than a year before it broke down on me. When I was deciding which PDA to get, I decided to go with the T5 because the specs looked really appealing. It's got a great screen and fairly good functions. The bad thing about the T5, and it may just be palm in general, is that... Read full review »


Great Handheld, but Bad Wiring

Pros Bright wide screen, good sound, excellent battery life
Cons Power button breaks within 6 months, apps can be slow to load at times.
Recommended it? No

When it works, it works great! When it doesn't, it is a paperweight, albeit a pretty looking one. Good features, but a pass on reliability.

I would love to be able to recommend this model. When it is working, it is really impressive. The widescreen video is outstanding. The ability to... Read full review »

Recommended it? No

I had a Vx for about 4 years and replaced it with a Tungsten T5 in Feb 2005. This was despite reading a number of reviews that described the hum some T5s reputedly make.

I have now owned the T5 for 15 months & I can categorically say that it is junk. Much as I hate to say it, the Palm OS... Read full review »

Pros Attractive display, fast, powerful. Lots of software available, much of it free.
Cons OEM peripherals are very expensive. No microphone, no built-in WiFi. No IM client.
Recommended it? Yes


I'm astonished that only 5 reviews had been written on this device, since it has been around for over a year and seems to be pretty popular. But since so few have taken the opportunity to write it up, I will share my thoughts on the T5.

I have... Read full review »

Pros Weight, memory, expansion card, great screen and speed
Cons No WiFi, no voice recorder and poor battery life

The Pa1mOne Tungsten T5 is a great solution offered by this company... light, nice looking, great screen, great speed and capacity. The connectivity is also very nice, as you can connect through the integrated BlueTooth or the included USB cable. It also let's you use it as a pen drive for carrying... Read full review »

palmOne Tungsten T5 Handheld

I've had the Tungsten T5 for about 3 months now; I've not had a PDA for a couple of years and figured it was time I got one to make work and life a bit easier. Initially I was excited by the new technology and in having a new gadget to play with, but after... Read full review »

An Opinion

We are always trying to jam as many gizmos into one device, however it always ends up that we only use one of the functions so why put up with all the other gizmos. I like simple functioning devices, Digital Camera,... Read full review »
