Summary: Amazon is going to be selling the amazing new "Livescribe" pen. For some reason, searching Amazon for "Livescribe" brings up this older and much less capable device. Don't be fooled. (My 3-star rating is no reflection on this product, which I have never tried. You can't leave things unrated when posting a review, I think.
Summary: Logitech IO2 Digital Pen ( 965154-0403 ) I'm a doctor. More to the point I'm a doctor who writes a lot of notes and is working on a book. Many have heard the parody of doctors' hadwriting. I'm no exception. This pen finds my handwriting more legible than most secretaries. I bought this pen to compare it with it's nearest competitor: The Fly Fusion Pentop Computer.
Summary: This item is great for making an exact digital copy of what you write. The paper is a little expensive and hard to find. The Hand writing recoginization software need a little to be desired but overallit is aokay
Good archival tool for handwritten notes and drawings

Summary: I have owned both the original ioPen and now the current io2 digitial pen. The io2 is clearly an improvement in usability and comfort. I purchased the pen in order to have a means of archiving and rapidly sharing my hand-written notes and drawings without going to the expense, weight and bulk of a tablet PC. I also own an Adesso digital pen and tablet (about $160) which works reasonably well, but it is much bulkier than the io2 digital pen and its Anoto-compatible paper.
Excerpt: I'm a note-taker at university for several months of the year, and spend quite a substantial amount of time waiting for lectures to begin. I like to be on time for things, so have a tendency to be ten minutes early. That's just my quirk. I first saw an article for a digital pen in a writing magazine, and mentioned it to my kids. One my next birthday, I was gifted my own - a Logitech io2 model. Setting up the software on my computer was simple.
