OLED Display GOES DEAD-- But Still Cool

C In Virginia, Amazon
30 November 2014
  • 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.

Display went dark!

8 September 2014
  • 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.

There is no aspect of this pen that is not deeply and horribly flawed. Their customer service to support this pen is a joke.

  • Summary: I have four of these. I am a university professor, and I purchased them both as an instructional and a research tool. My comments here are based on issues that are common to all four pens that I own (two of which replaced pens that I previously purchased that did not work, so technically I've owned...

Amazing!

Customer, Amazon
29 August 2014
  • 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).

Great Product; Defective OLED Display

TLebens, Amazon
13 August 2014
  • Summary: The LiveScribe smartpen work great. I am on my third Echo, and my second Sky/WiFi. I get about a year's-worth of use out of each pen, and then can expect the OLED display to fade to the point that it is not longer readable.

  • Summary: Make sure you read the most current reviews of this item before you buy. Most of the great reviews came out four years ago. Everything the poor reviews have given this tool has been correct in our experience as well.
