Summary: I purchased both the Echo and SKY models and decided to hold onto SKY because of the wifi connectivity/Evernote integration. Having used Echo in the past, I do not see any major differences between the two models except for the ones noted above. So far, I have had a great experience with the pen. I hope Livescribe could be quicker with the much awaited enhancements.
Summary: The LiveScribe pen has been a great addition to my work flow. I spend a great deal of time on conference calls and in meetings - the ability to immediately send out my Notes is a time saver. And we have a weekly development meeting where the recording in combo with my Notes makes sure that none of us miss any points for feature changes.
Summary: This product does exactly what it's supposed to do. I can jot down notes and this thing will record everything down to the period. In the past few days that I've had it, it has yet to fail recording my chicken scratch. I've used the audio feature only to setup the device. I can't comment on that aspect, but it worked perfectly when I setup the device. The user interface is a real charm, and I think that's what sets it apart from the others.
Summary: After few mis-deliveries and then a double delivery ...I got my Livesrcibe 4GB. Have been using it for the past month or so. Fantastic instrument.No complaints except that it is little heavy and thick, that may be because it has been long time I have used a "real pen" for writing.I am (an electrical /semiconductor engineer for the past 25 years) WOWed!!!! I have been trying many electronic writing instruments which connect to PC etc...
Summary: This review is based on using the Echo 4 GB pen for about two weeks now. Overall I am happy and I am using the pen successfully. There are however limitations that you should be aware of related to the form factor and software. Despite those limitations I am happy with the pen and would buy it again. Form factor: The pen is about the size of MontBlanc's largest fountain pen. It is it easy to hold and the soft textured area at the base of the pen makes it easy to grip.
Summary: This is a really great smartPen, I wish I would of had it during architecture school for notes and drawings. I knew this pen recorded writing bu never knew if would record drawings so well. Pros: -smooth writing and drawing and is about 85-90% accurate (always legible for text) -You can actually draw with it accurately! -Great for businesses as well as students -Voice recording works great Cons: -Fills up fast if you write a lot.
Summary: I picked up one of these pens after wrestling with the idea for several months. Here's my thoughts: 1. It's fairly easy to use, but you can tell right out of the box that these have been in the box for a little while. At least in computer terms, that is, because it needs an immediate update to the firmware on the pen. That's not bad, unless you were planning on turning it on and using it first. That matters to me with electronics. 2.
Summary: I wish I would have had this in college! This is a phenomenal tool for anyone who is in school or attends any type of training / seminars. I have the 4GB version, and on medium audio quality it was more than enough storage for a 55 hour lecture weekend. I did have to re-charge during a break, but this seminar was mostly non-stop for 14 hours+. (Pen on almost all the time) Good quality on the audio BTW!
Summary: I ordered one USED from an Amazon Marketplace seller. The product is very useful, I just feel it's a bit overpriced. Try to find one for $100 if you really want to make the price easier to swallow. If you're like me, you have a million notebooks scattered all over the place, some notes in one notebook, some notes in another.
