Summary: The unit works just OK. Has a difficult time with certain typestyles and numbers. Had to contact manufacturer's tech support twice. Even though they are just 25 miles north of my office, you can never get anyone to answer the phone, just e-mail and that may take days to resolve.
Beautiful and useful, but the advertisement is misleading

Summary: The pen is beautiful, elegant, and it reads what you write. The advertisement was misleading, because you would think that you would be able to see your writing in the computer as you write, and that is not true. For starters, you have to have it unplugged from the computer in order to use it.
Summary: I received my pen by mail late this afternoon. During the evening, while watching TV, I played around with the pen. Having read reviews here, I expected it to be difficult to use the pen at first but had no problem using the pen to scan.
Summary: I purchased this pen to help with Translating some books. If you use German you should have no problem but if you use Russian you will have to switch back and forth between Windows Language settings which can be annoying.
Summary: I found the orignal Iris Pen II under Windows 2000 far superior to the Iris Pen Executive under Microsoft XP. Both the Iris Pen II and this new design does not integrate as well with Microsoft XP. Aligning the executive type pen with the text is far more difficult than with the II-type pen.
Summary: La verdad es que todavíano lo he adquirido pero estoy muy interesado en ello. Quisiera tener más información porque todavía no me he decidido y no se si hay en el mercado alguno que sea similar con mejores prestaciones o precio más competitivo.
