4.0 out of 5 stars Useful but... 20 Dec 2009
I have messy handwriting and straight off it will accurately transpose 3/4 of my text. However, if you create a handwriting profile it gets 95% right. The majority of the text below the first line is correct but the first line regardless of where I start tends to be a bit wobbly. The main problem is human error: if you forget to press the button when you turn the page you have lost both pages and using abbreviations or short hand confuses it even if you add them to the dictionary. Otherwise a life saver. The refills are short lived..

4.0 out of 5 stars Initially frustrating 29 July 2009
Thought that I'd give this product a try to see if it was as good as it sounded. Was it? YES. The only frustrating part is the initial configuration with your own personal hand writing. Getting the correct angle of the little magic box is essential otherwise it will read and mix what you have written into 2 lines or more that make no sence. The instruction booklet is a bit vague however I found that if you attach the magig box thing to your computer via the USB then start scribbling and adjust its' angle accordingly. Once the scribbles are on the screen in a straight line, disconnect the USB, delete what you have just written and carry out the configuration. The new page part is a litte confusing but me being me found that if you press the button on the box to record what you have written and just tear around without moving it you are then on a new page. On the whole very impressed with the item.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very clever but with a couple of irritations. 3 Aug 2010
The whole idea is brilliant and it definately does what it says on the box but there are a couple of irritations as follows: You can switch the pen from writing mode to mouse mode and this is great but when the pen has not been used for a minute or so, it goes to sleep, I assume to save battery power. When it does this the cursor vanishes so when you tap the pen's nib to reactivate it you have no idea where on the screen the cursor is and this tap not only reactivates the pen, it also actions the tap. Therefore it's random which toolbar button you've just pressed or which email you've just opened because you have no way of knowing which button or email the invisible cursor is hovering over. The other irritation is that there is no way to replicate the action of a trackwheel when scrolling in the likes of Excel and Word or when using the trackball to change zoom in Excel, Word or Visio.

Capturing text as you write is great - my hand writing is not good so it has trouble converting it but in terms of capturing the handwriting as an image it's brilliant.

So in summary, it does what it says but I don't use it much because of the trackwheel absense and the really annoying invisible cursor, which is a shame because using a pen as a mouse is much, much nicer that using a mouse.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does its Job 10 Oct 2009
By D.U.
Verified Purchase
First I was skeptical about this product, but when I opened the box it came with nice case and 4 spare inks. It recognized my hand writing right away. The only minus I would say is that this product is outdated. If you look at the software it looks like it was designed in 1998. So if you want to buy it and do lots of writing and you are fine with current functions than buy it. If you want really functional one get others such as livescribe pen.

3.0 out of 5 stars E-pen Mobile Notes by Apcom 6 Oct 2009
By NCLG
This e-pen is reasonable but suffers from a slightly inadequate viewer or camera.

You have to get used to starting writing well down the page and using large margins, in order to ensure that the viewer captures as much as possible of what has been written.

By and large the recognition software is very good and it is easy enough to make any changes to the text if any recognition errors have been made or otherwise it needs re-formatting (which is usual).

In conclusion there is certainly some time saving if you wish to hand write notes of meetings or if you do not have a lap top or else are not quick enough typing on the latter, however there is some way to go yet before this technology can deliver all that it promises.

4.0 out of 5 stars E-Pen Review 1 April 2011
By Gadget
Wasn't sure whether to order this or not after reading the reviews but went for it. Worked really well from the off. Once you get the hang of positioning the reader it seems to read the handwriting well and the function to convert written text into Word is brilliant. It's saving me hours typing up hand written notes. If you are 'umming and arring' - go for itApcom E-pens APPEG-030 Mobile Notes
