If it has a down side, then it would probably be the recognition software, particularly for graphics use. Maybe I need to spend more time with it, but organisation charts come across as a series of lines rather than boxes, for example.
That aside, its a great product.
- the resolution of the digitised writing is very good. Not jagged or pixellated, looks like my writing.
- the handwriting recognition software is pretty good, even with my pretty awful handwriting. A little bit of effort to write evenly & tidily pays off. It's fine with joined up handwriting, and sometimes does an amazing job at recognising scribbles that I can hardly read!
- The pen is pretty comfortable to use.
- Basically does what it says.
- The battery in the receiving unit (the lozenge shaped clip) is built-in and rechargeable via the USB connection. I don't know how long it will last yet, but it does mean I can't pack a spare battery if I'm away from the PC for a while. I tried it with my USB mains plugin power supply but it didn't work. It also means the lifetime of the whole device is limited by the lifetime of the battery. I'd prefer a normal rechargeable AAA or suchlike.
- The software integration is a bit clunky. First you import into the proprietry software ("Scribble"), and then if you want to convert to text, export into the supplied OCR ("MyScript Notes"), and if you want it in RTF or TXT format, export again from that.
- MyScript Notes is pretty good at OCR as I said, but it does rely on dictionaries for the recognition. So if your word isn't in the dictionary, even if it is written neatly, it could come out as the usual spellchecker garble. You can train it, though, both with words you use, and autoreplacements if you want to use your own abbreviations.Read more ›
Get one, you will not be disappointed.
I must pay tribute to the people in the customer support team at Appcom. They tried really hard to help me to get the product to work. I sent them a photo of my handwriting (which is perfectly legible), together with a copy of the script captured on screen (on what looks like a yellow post-it note)accompanied by the jumble of mixed-up words, some legible and some not, that appeared on screen when I converted it to text. Appcom were good. Thanks to them I re-installed the software, they replaced the receiver unit, and I tried various other tips and tricks. However for me, it just doesn't work.
So I can't recommend this unit at all. If you have handwriting which suits the program it may work for you.
I've been very disappointed - I thought it would save me loads of time and I've given up using it.

I've owned this product for a while now and I can't for the life of me get it to work. I've used similar products to this and I have always thought they were great devices.Published 5 months ago by Jane
Great value for money. The conversion from hand writing to text is not great but this aside, this is the perfect way to store hand-written notes. Read morePublished on 15 Jun. 2010 by C. Jones
Neat product, but feels very cheap considering the price - really plastic and light.
Also please note that the handwriting software is a SAMPLE ONLY! Read more

I've reviewed this product already, but I have to amend what I said before in light of my experience with the program for this bit of techno-widgetry. Read morePublished on 13 Jun. 2009 by jack
this is ok if you are not converting it. when you convert the text, it has problems with numbers. but ok for taking note once you have got it to understand your writingPublished on 14 April 2009 by alc
The pen is great and impressed with the digital recognition software.
Looking forward to trying it out some more.
I was really excited about this product. I bought it for my wife but it would not recognise her handwriting but would recoginse 90% of mine! Read morePublished on 28 Feb. 2009 by Practitioner
