1.0 out of 5 stars Madden 13 for Wii will make you mad, September 1, 2012
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Madden 12 is king on the Wii, at least until the Wii U console comes out. Madden 13 goes backward and leaves out features from previous versions. Also possible graphics quirks.

The good, bad and ugly:

Wifi Updated Rosters-- (that is why the case is marked "Wifi") you can get updated rosters over the internet.
That's it! nothing else new and noteworthy.

No online gameplay. Better hope they continue to support, and stick with version 12...
Game has no new "wow" features. Plays just like version 12, but with new rosters. Essentially, all you are paying for is new rosters. If that's all you want (and you don't want to play online), you might be happy...
Announcers only make "generic" statements about "he" and "they." No names of players mentioned as in previous versions. Gets repetitive much faster than usual...

I noticed a graphics quirk not present in 12-- where the whole screen will shake like there's an earthquake. Hmm.

Overall... not worth the money. Wait for the Wii U version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Mac Ready-- Firewire problem not resolved, June 29, 2009
Nothing new to add here except to balance the 5 star reviews with my 2 star-- and to warn those Mac users who think it won't happen to you-- don't buy this drive-- it will happen to you too, just as it did me. Same problem not re-mounting after sleep. Doesn't do it all the time-- just sometimes. Too bad, otherwise a good drive, but it is getting to be a pain having to reach over and plug/unplug to get it to remount.

2.0 out of 5 stars Paying More, Getting Less, April 13, 2005
I wanted to upgrade my Tungsten T model, and bought the T5. I was surprised that the difference in quality diminished. The Tungsten T has a metal case that feels solid-- the T5 case is metal(?) on the front and plastic on the top, bottom and sides. It feels cheap (mine even makes a "creaking" sound when you push against the top to hit the power button).

The T5 features are a trade off-- the good ones, the bigger screen is nice and features portrait and landscape views, and the extra memory where you can store documents is good and well integrated (although if you don't mind switching SD media cards, you can get similar expanded memory in other models--the T5 has this as well).

The bad (feature that are bad, or missing from previous models).

1. The new memory is flash memory, (so that you won't lose data if the battery dies), but software hasn't quite caught up with this new memory and the new chip. There are several old application that crashed and needed updating (another expense).

2. Voice memo gone, (present on the T and T3 models). This was a great feature and I was surprised that the dropped it from this model.

3. No cradle included. (I paid less for the T model which came with a cradle-- getting less, paying more...) So, budget another $50.

4. The "universal adapter" has been dropped, so if you have a universal adapter keyboard or other accessories, they won't work with the T5. (more expense, if you don't catch a free keyboard offer from Palm).

These are some of the things that I didn't catch from their web site and wish I had before I bought.

New users who have never had a Palm before (and don't know the good quality they USED to have) may be happy with the T5.

Upgrading/previous users may wan't to get a T3 (if they don't mind the sliding case). Its cheaper, has decent memory (plus SD card capability) voice memo, large screen w/ portrait and landscape.
