I have had my T5 for 6 months. It is extremely sensitive to what is loaded in it's memory. I find that not only programs, but files cause it to crash.

I am getting tired of unloading and reloading programs and files to keep the T5 stable.

The upside of this is as I load 3rd party programs, I learn if the software is written for Pocket PC and I re-thinking of alternatives.

I love the non-volatile memory.

Documents-To-Go may also be a problem.

The bluetooth Stowaway keyboard's function is spotty at best. I keep getting disconnects.

The Wi-Fi function is not fully stable.

It is probably time to consider migrating to a pocket pc, having been a palm fan since the original Pilot.

I have had my T5 for about a month now and love it. I haven't experienced any more crashes than I did with my T|T. No problems with Documents to Go (Version 7.003 Premium) as others have mentioned. Don't want or need Wi-Fi. Overall the screen is beautiful. Even tiny fonts are clear enough to read easily for me. I did have to delete Super Names since it is not compatible with the T5 (yet) and BackupMan (although it has since been updated but crashes are still possible according to their website). I will say that when I moved to the T5 I researched all of my third party programs to make sure that they were specifically compatible and just did not install those that were not. I do not like Graffiti 2 but after using G1 so long, I am sure that I will just have to re-train myself. As far as the speed of entry using G2, I have found that the letters appear far faster if I uncheck the preference to "Show Graffiti Strokes" in Preferences->Input. Overall, I am very pleased with the T5 and do not regret purchasing it one bit.
