Summary: A good PDA
Comment: I like the T/X for the most part but have spent a number of hours trying to figure out how to get it to work with MS Vista, finally had to disable the documents to go. Didn't get much help from the Palm website, but did from the users blog that it referred me to, but still hit and miss. The calendar is great and the ability to access the internet is nice.

Summary: Great Product
Comment: The PalmTX is a great product. Well designed, light, reliable. The processor seems quick enough for most tasks and the display is easy to read. It is certainly a step up from previous products and I especially enjoy the WIFI access. The one disappointment I have is that it is a little slower in translating graffiti strokes to text. I have not yet learned to slow down and so I must correct many mistakes. I'm sure I will adjust, but I do miss the previous speed which appraoched normal printing.

Summary: Not the best device one can get for it does.
Comment: Having owned a Palm III, my first impression with the TX was that it is cheaply made. The TX is slightly bigger than the III but much lighter and feels "plastic." The Palm III worked well for contacts and appointments. The TX does a lot more, but not very well. If you want to email, web-surf, and use Words & Excel on a handheld, opt for a device with a finger-size keyboard. For the price of a TX, you will get a lot more by paying only a little more.

The bottom line: If you are a diehard Palm user, the Tungsten will do you fine. If you really want more out of your Palm, go for the Treo, or even a Blackberry.

Summary: Never really worked...
Comment: ...and I should have sent it back, but I didn't get around to it. I've reloaded the software a few times. it never boots, it never syncs, and then it just dies by repeatedly rebooting. it even wore out it's battery doing that. ugh.

I loved my earlier Palms and I like the operating system and the ease of use, but I've grown weary of having to carry a phone and a PDA. I tried a Treo but that had it's challenges, so believe it or not, I've got an iPhone. as a PDA, it pales, but as an overall, I'm satisfied. Sigh. I miss by Palm Tungsten-3 with the slide up and down feature.

Summary: Once a great product, no longer
Comment: I'm not exactly sure who to blame for the problem - but here it is:

Palm TX was great - once.

Palm TX (nor any palm from the Googling I've been doing) does not hot sync with Vista (especially Vista 64, which I have) and Palm is doing nothing about this. Why?

The Palm Desktop software (and hotsync tool) was made by a company called "Access" which is mostly defunct now.

All newer PDAs run Windows for Mobile devices and those will sync.

So - if you're running Vista or at some point will be upgrading your Windows XP box, don't expect your Palm to sync if it is not running Windows for Mobile devices.

I'm saddened that Palm would show so little support for a good product. Me? I'm going to buy a PocketPC to replace my working Palm TX. I'll give that thing away.
