Not very practical.,
This review is from: Livescribe Universal Premium Case (Personal Computers)
I bought this for my Echo pen and I have to say I am a bit disappointed. My first impression is that the case appears to be smart, of good quality leather and well stitched. It is also quite large
For me, these are the issues:
1. it's too big to go discreetly in anyone's shirt pocket no matter what the marketing blurb says. A jacket or trouser pocket will also provide a challenge.
2. I can't get the pen to go properly into the case while it has the cap fitted, it is just that bit too big and I don't like forcing it.
3. Without the cap on I can get the pen in the case but it is very tight. When I need to get the pen out in a hurry, while I am on the phone for example, it takes two hands and a lot of force (and manipulation). On one occasion the pen went flying out of my hand when it suddenly came unstuck!
4. I find the best way of getting the pen to fit into the case is to insert it with the power button facing the back of the case, however when doing this there is also the potential to turn the pen on without realising it, I've done that a couple of times.
All in all a bit unsatisfactory which is a shame. If you are going to make the case as big as this then for the money you're really ought to make it big enough, it's currently an interference fit and another 2mm would have resolved all of these issues. I can only hope that the leather eases as it gets used.
