I've been trying CompanionLink (CL) for a couple of weeks. It seems to work fine, such as it is. Pros: -Contact/Calendar seems to work both ways (Android and Outlook). -Have not run into the merge issue with Android Contacts but that isn't a CL issue anyway. -The sync between Google and Outlook (and therefore Google and Droid) can be automatic and configurable as long as your computer is on the internet (you need to download their Goodsync product as well but it is free). -Direct sync by cable available (without Google in the middle) - have not tried it yet. Cons: -$39.95 -Kludgy handling of Memos and Tasks (put into Contacts and Calendar respectively). -$39.95 -Google in the middle (your data in the cloud) -$39.95 -Had a few strange things happen but minor (example: change in Droid didn't showup in Outlook - made the same change a 2nd time and it did.) -$39.95 - ok I'm cheap. I'll probably buy it anyway - grumbling all the way. Google should have supplied full Outlook sync to start with - like everyone else. If I had known this I might have gone with the PrePlus which was my 2nd choice - and I could have ported all my long time Palm apps as well. Otherwise I love the Droid. Hope that helps someone.
