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

3 October 2014
  • 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: 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.

Amazing!

  • 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).

Echo 4GB review; commentary on Livescribe

No Name Texan, Amazon
5 July 2014
  • Summary: I have the 4GB ECHO. I generally won't post a review on a product like this until I have used it for at least one year, and in this case, I waited longer than that. The pen works well to its stated function, at least for me.

Great product when it works, but it has a known screen problem and company does not uphold their warranty.

Suzee Q, Amazon
7 June 2014
  • Summary: I wouldn't buy it again. We have two of these pens in my household. My daughter's pen works fine and is very useful to her. On my pen, the OLED display dimmed and stop working and the warranty has not expired yet, but the company is giving me the runaround.

Display useless after about a year, just after warranty expires

Jennifer Cho, Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this pen a couple of years ago but have not really used it much. The brightness of the display will fade after about a year and will be impossible to see anything unless you turn out all the lights.
