Have been using for nearly 2 months and I am stunned. I ordered this with high expectations and as is normal with these kinds of gadgets I then expected that the initial excitement would be subsided by a fatal flaw in the product and then end up chucking it into the bottom of the draw.

However, I was amazed when I first started using it and 8 weeks on I am still amazed and I use it every working day.
Firstly, let me explain my situation. I work from home, I spend my life in a home office on conference calls and am in a fairly new technical lead role, where I have to digest much new and complex information. I previously had a little Dictaphone which was very inefficient, to replay important parts of calls. This pen does so much more.

The Echo Pen allows me to record every single call and as I write every word is saved. If I want to replay part of the conversation I just place my pen on the words I wrote and the pen replays that exact part of the conversation. Even better when I plug the pen into the computer all the notes/audio are transferred and you can then search through your handwriting for key words. This is exactly what I have been looking for. It now means I can decipher all the technical gobbledegook quickly and in my own time and ensure I have captured everything correctly.

I have since bought the 4 Live-scribe journal (80 sheets) and additional ink re-fill, which so far i haven't had to replace and still using the original. Yesterday I was getting worried I was getting close to the 2GB limit of audio on the pen, and then found you can easily remove older audio from the pen to free up space, but it retains it on the computer.

Only issues I have is that you may be disappointed which what arrives in the box.

I bought this pen & some digital note pads (following a recommendation from a business contact) for my very dyslexic daughter, as I thought it might help her at University.
Well - it turned out to be a huge/outstanding success and exceeded all my expectations and hers as well. It was really easy to set up and link in with her Apple Laptop and she's also bought & downloaded other linked voice transcription software to support it.
Her University (Sussex) were very supportive (once they understood what it was all about) and she now has permission from all her lecturers to use the pen in their lectures and tutorials - greatly assisting her, as one of the big problems she faced was comprehensive & coherent note taking.
The script-to-text conversion software and the voice-to-text software were also of great assistance, dramatically cutting down the extended time taken by her to transcribe her notes.
All in all a brilliant concept - and the digital notepads were easily orderable (via Amazon) at a not unreasonable price.
Known now as "that singing pen" by all her Uni friends ... as it has a music writing & playback facility as well ... I'm about to order one for myself, as I've struggled with business note taking for 30+ years myself. Thoroughly recommended & a total bargin.

Although i got a few funny looks in my first week of lectures, this pen has actually won a lot of people over. In my lectures, there are people taking notes on Ipads, notepads, laptops, netbooks and me with this. Nobody has the same interactive playback as i do, and all are little jealous!

In an Equine Anatomy and Physiology lecture, when my tutor talks at about 300mph, i just draw a basic diagram of what i know we'll be doing, then as he goes through areas, i set to record, wait to see where he'll point to next, say the skull, and tap a dot on the paper. Following this, i just put particular words that will bring back the memories. Later, when i am at home, I connect to the livescribe desktop and tap on the dot i put earlier in the day, and the audio comes straight from my laptop - "the maxilla is the upper part of an equine skull encompassing the nasal cavity and various air spaces for nerve endings" ect...

It's invaluable to me. I then store all of my note page on my laptop, on microsoft onenote in seperate areas (just like you would in a ringbinder file, then save it all to The Cloud. Et viola, notes i can access anywhere, and interactive lecture playback at home.

So far, i see no flaws. I mute it in lectures so there isn't any awkward noises from it, and record away. It still manages perfectly clear audio play back even at the far end of a lecture theatre.

I have a 2gb pen and the battery is incredible. I haven't charged it properly since i got it. The odd ten minutes seems to keep it up. The memory sounds small but fits a massive amount in, especially if you occasionally delete unwanted files from the device.

I don't use any of the apps that are available, just because i dont need them at all. Cheaper notepads would be lovely but they last a while so it's not an issue. Ink also is generous, no issues here.

All in all, very happy with my purchase and many of my uni friends are planning on getting one too!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First off, the answer is no - you can't play Angry Birds on the Livescribe. If you are still reading then you will this to be an interesting piece of technology - and it's not just a gimmick.

The instructions were fairly simple to follow with regards to set-up of the pen. The genius is that the instruction booklet requires you to use the pen - you tap on an icon and the pen tells you what to do next. Definitely a few 'wow' moments as you find out all that the livescribe does!

Some of it is a little gimmicky - like the fact that you can draw 9 joined up lines on a piece of the special paper and then when you tap in each line it plays a different note like a piano. Can't imagine when you might use that - but it will impress some friends maybe!

However, the main use of the Livescribe will be during lectures, team meetings or one-to-one meetings like for interviews, coaching sessions, counselling sessions and so on. Here it beats both dictaphone and ipad. And here's why:

With the Livescribe, you write your notes down on the piece of paper, while you record what the person is saying. So let's take a journalist as an example.

You sit down with your pad of LIvescribe paper, you press record (which is on the paper) and you make notes as the person speaks. This way you have both a written copy of your notes as well as the voice. But what makes Livescribe genius is that you can then go back home, and if you tap say at the top of the third paragraph of your notes, the voice recording jumps to exactly that section! That way, you don't have keep pressing forwards and backwards on a dictaphone to try and find the exact quote or section. And you aren't scrolling up down on your ipad trying to remember where you wrote what...
