Summary: As a doctoral student I seem to be typing, writing or notetaking contantly. Over the past few years I have developed carpal tunnel and dequorveines[sp?] so this product has been a godsend. Here are the pros and yes, cons: Pros: Lightweight, conforms to your hand, easy on/off with cap, lighter than carrying a laptop/tablet pc, uses blue medium ink refills (my personal preference), great if you are doing interviewing and don't want your laptop in someone's face (rather...
Summary: Logitech sold its digital pen business to Destiny ([...]) and does not provide support for the pen anymore - and, despite promises, Destiny has failedto deliver a Vista driver yet. However, there is a work-around. The following worked for me: - make sure .NET 1.1 and SP1 are installed on your computer - if not download both from microsoft.com and install.
Summary: I bought this pen for my daughter to take lecture notes at university. It works like a charm. My only concern is that I have to keep buying the digital notebooks. The pen software loaded fine, and it works very well. Didn't take long to train it to read her handwriting.
Summary: The Logitech io2 digital pen has changed the way I work and "play" -- if you can call keeping a journal play. It has greatly enhanced my productivity by turning my once mothballed, dead notepads into living documents that I can search, cross-reference and rapidly turn into memos, reports and published articles. I've always preferred creating written works by putting ink to paper rather than typing. Now I get the best of both worlds.
Summary: The pen is stylish and ergonomic. It is a little bigger than a regular pen but not too big to carry in a shirt pocket. Fits in the hand nicely with a good ergonomic feel. The cradle folds cleverly into a small, compact form and plugs in via USB. Installation on Windows XP was a little problematic. Although it doesn't say that it requires a reboot, it actually took several before the installation completed successfully.
Summary: WOW I really like this product. I have heard critisms regarding having to purchase their paper yet I was able to buy through logitech and it was inexpensive. The reason I like this so well is that I don't have to take my laptop to meetings and when I get an idea I can just write it down as I always did.
Summary: This is a unique way to enter data - just write on the special paper ($10 for three pads, bear that in mind) and your writing is digitized. One feature of the paper is that it's unique for each piece, so the system knows when you change pages or return to a previously-edited page - even if you mail it across the country, someone else can write on your page and add annotations. Drawbacks - it's still too big, and you have to buy their paper.
