Summary: there is an issue with the display.....the issue is that there is none.....i returned it 2 days after i received it. i read reviews from other users and they all have the same problem. i really love the idea of this pen and paper and i will buy another and hope that it works....
Summary: I got this as a gift a couple of years ago and since then my pen's screen has gone dark. I looked the problem up on the internet and found so many complaints about this item. Many people's pens did not last more than 2 years! If the OLED screen does not fail, the battery will.
Summary: It's a cool pen but if you don't use it continuously the OLED display fails. That's what happened to me. Pulled it out last night and everything is dark. Charged it over night and the pen seems to be working fine but the display is completely dead.
Pen display dies right after warrantey ends, don't throw your money away on Livescribe pens

Summary: I bought this pen in 2012 because the display on the 1GB Pulse I had started going dark. I thought this would be a good upgrade, but boy was I wrong. I used it sporadically during 2012, and liked it.
Summary: Had mine for about 2.5-years and now the display window has gone black and can't be used to see the level of battery charge or see the menu selections. Found lots of people here with the same problem who aren't getting much support from the manufacture:...
Summary: My pen display has gone dark. On the Livescribe forums there is a long thread of people with the same issue. Livescribe should recall all affected pens. This is my 2nd and last Livescribe pen. I"m just going to use my iPad in combination with an app called Notability.
Summary: I absolutely Love this pen! I tried the "Pulse" and didn't like that it relies on WIFI to function properly. The Echo Pen plugs right into your computer with a standard micro USB cable (which makes it easy if you have to replace it).
