      Livescribe Echo Pen

      By Walter

      from Bethlehem, PA

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Livescribe® 2GB Echo® Smartpen:

      The new Livescribe pen is a big improvement over the older version. It came fully charged so I could use it right (and write) away. The flow of "ink" is much better and smoother. I do a lot of research and writing, so the pen is a real help. The only problem I had was registration - probably due to my clumsiness. The Livescribe company advertises a program whereby legible handwriting can be transformed into print - that will be the next investment. Bottom Line: great product. Staples has a good price. Deivery virtually immediate!

        Ok so I ordered this smartpen monday night (10/07/13) and I got it Wednesday (10/09/13) so Kudos to staples on fast shipping.

        The night I started to play with this pen was pretty cool. I understood it pretty quickly so I'd say it's user-friendly but i'm good with technology. still it's pretty straight forward.

        I did need to update the software to use the notebooks i bought but it worked well with the notebook it came with.

        the grip could have a better feeling design but it's ok

        it comes with an extra ink stick but they are smaller that regular pens.

        It has a calculator :)

        ***********************
        My Recommendations*
        ***********************
        download all necessary software for this pen ASAP so you don't struggle with it when you actually need it

        Play with the pen to know how to use it when needed. (takes about 15 min to learn the basics and how to use the piano app.)

        Comments about Livescribe® 2GB Echo® Smartpen:

        I picked this up for my 8th grader during 'back to school' purchasing, knowing she'd try it and I'd know success/failure within about two days. Sure enough - I took it to my economics class on the third day to try myself, and it changed my notes-taking significantly. Here's how.

        I usually am a minute or two behind the lecture when it comes to drawing out the illustrations. So on review, there's stuff I've missed because of the time lag. With the microphone recording the lecture, I can draw the examples out and not worry about losing my place (detail) in the lecture - it's there when I play it all back.

        I am working with my Econ. professor (who also tutors) to get her using one of these. She envisions working through an exercise with a pupil and then posting the work online so they can review it, with her words along with the problem's construction. BRILLIANT!

        This model I expect is being discontinued because they've found a way to sneak a Wi-Fi transmitter into the pen. For my money, I'm happy to have to use a wire - the power will go further in the pen that way.

          Once it is set up, it's so eAsy to use- turn on and write! The desktop interface is not as intuitive as it should be, but it's not bad. I haven't used the recording function yet- but note taking is awesome, and the companion app to transcribe my scrawl into type is so-so. I am a teacher and I know this is going to become an indespensible orgAnizational tool for me.

                Comments about Livescribe® 2GB Echo® Smartpen:

                The livescribe pen is wonderful! I had to piece together a "bundle" as the Staples "livescribe bundles" were out of stock (which is confusing since I was able to get the items separately...perhaps this is a way to charge more?)

                Regardless, this pen is such a find! I am using it for writing. In the past I would fill notebooks with story ideas, etc. and then, maybe, type them in my laptop. Now I just sync the pen, bring up Myscript (free version, after which I am certain to purchase) and my livescribe notes are converteds to text.

                I've done some quick sketches which are synced very well. I am surprised as to how well my printing was recognized.

                I got the 2GB pen and wished I would;ve gone for at least the 4GB.

                Last thing...when i pieced together my own "bundle" I got the livescribe stand up charger which is not needed with the 2GB pen.
