This is a good model, but the lack of support provided by the company is inexcusable. I was unsure about whether to invest in this model, since the company provides no information about what surfaces this model is designed for. I noticed another reviewer said it works great on paper, but sometimes when I hit it off with a bloke at the pub, I'll write his number on my hand.

If you just want to memorize and don't really care about understanding, then it will suit you fine.
