Review Content Electronic Pen Very ingenious product Digital Notetaker Its great because: it feels like a normal pen - so its not at all awkward. the pick up of the device is strong so you can keep it at a comfortable distance from where youre writing Its not so great because: the handwriting-to-script software is not so hot - and I have pretty clear handwriting it doesnt seem to pick up on everything, so it doesnt look 100% when you upload it. ** the discs used to install the translating software are micro-discs, so youre going to have to load the data there onto a USB or something to get it on your laptop. In its defense - Im pedantic about these things, and so did not really give it a big chance. Pretty Cool I just started using the product. It picks up my writing well and my notes look good on the computer. I havent set up the conversion to text tool yet. The pen cannot be re-oriented on Windows Vista and newer -- so you have to clip the scanner so it aims straight down (you cannot put it on the corners: I prefered the right corner -- because your notes will upload diagnle and you cant easily rotate them). Digital Note Taker. this Item was purchased as a gift item and we are happy w/ it! It seems great!!! I got it for my hubby for Christmas so he can save time at work!! It seems like a great tool to have!!! Works better than advertised! Despite some reviews, this unit operated perfectly the first time and recognized my poor handwriting within 5 minutes - good instructions for a clever device. Does what it says!! Impressed!! Love it! What a great idea! I got this as a gift for my son to use in college. I think it is a great idea and will probably work great. However, this comes with a "mini" disk. My son has a MacBook Pro and it is not able to install the "mini" disk. So I am having trouble finding out how to download what is on the disk so that he will be able to use it. It is very compact and looks easy to use. Great product! Its nice when drawing schematics so I dont have to rescan every page. Con would be software disk size. Doesnt work well for computers that dont have a tray like a Mac. Great gift for a techie! The handwriting recognition is pretty good!
