Here is what people are saying about the Livescribe Echo Smartpen (4GB, #APA-00006)
5 Star Rating  "LOVE THIS PEN!!" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from North Dakota
I purchased this pen after doing a little research on it but never seeing it used. I would HIGHLY recommend this for ever college student! The pen requires special notebooks (about $20 for 4 notebooks on Amazon) and special ink cartridges (about $6 for 5 on Amazon). I have read that many people complain about the cost of the "special items" but the benefits outweigh the little bit of an extra cost.

Pros:
* Allows me to pay more attention and NEVER miss anything in class with the audio
* Audio pairs to the notes written in the "special" notebook -- I love this! Makes it easy to go back and hear what my professor was talking about.
* Makes studying easy -- rehear lectures if you missed or didn't understand something the first time
* Has helped me to raise my grades in all of my classes
* Saves all of your notes on your computer and makes it easy to send to classmates or organize for yourself.
* The microphone is great - works both in lecture halls & classrooms

Cons:
* It is a little expensive - But consider it the cost of a book (Very worth it!)
* Must use the special paper -- it is about the same price as a 5-star notebook
* Ink cartridges - lasted about 50 - 65 pages with lots of notes
* Size of the pen - after 4 hours of holding the pen my hand hurts. It is about the size of a large permanent marker.

5 Star Rating  "Awesome" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from California--Ban the Plastic Bag!
Totally awesome pen. ALL of my business associates have bought theirs once they've seen minel---truly incredible and awesome. There are some poor reviews, but to me it's like they are saying that flight on a Jumbo Airplane sucks because the Pillows weren't fluffy enough----give me a break!

This pen is awesome--buy it!
 
4 Star Rating  "As advertised" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
I am very impressed with this pen. It certainly does everything they advertise about it regarding hardware and software. The tracking is fabulous (even when scribbling quite quickly) and the audio recording is very good. I've used it for pencasts of solution sets (I'm a physics teacher), for meetings, and for large auditorium-style presentations and the recording is great.

Best features: Using the written text to index the audio is the most surprising feature for me. In a meeting you simply write down key words and know that you can go right to the audio for that. The text recognition feature of the free software is also very good as I'm able to search for even my messy handwriting.

unused features: I've used the piano feature to show people the tracking ability but for the moment I don't really care about the other possible applications.

worst feature: Sharing pencasts is quite easy with the free software but you only get 500MB to share. I've probably already used 10% of that in a month as I post solutions for my students. I'd happily pay for more space but they don't seem to have that feature (yet). Also, you have to use their site to post the pencasts because, while it's a flash application, they don't provide the flash wrapper so you can post it elsewhere.
 
4 Star Rating  "Great addition for my note taking" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User
This pen is just what I needed. No matter how fast I wrote I would still miss something. This pen has solved the -what did they say while I was writing dilemma. The only thing that could improve this pen for me would be to not hear the writing on the paper during the playback. For me, it was worth the price.
 
5 Star Rating  "This pen is amazing" 
- Reviewed By An Amazon User from Denver, CO
I was hesitant to buy any of the livescribe products because it looked huge and there were some critics that said it didn't work that well. when the echo model came out I decided to jump in and get it.
I've had it a week now and I must say its better than I hoped. It records the notes I take as well as the audio and its uploaded into my computer. I can pick on any of the notes and it starts to play the audio back at that point in time. The program shows the notes being written as the audio is played but. Its a terrific contextual map that allows you to listen to what was said as you wrote.

I have had no problems with the audio either in a small room or a large conference room. Its very clear and easy to understand. I'm absolutely blown away by how well it works.

On the cons- I still think it would be great if they could thin it down, the ink cartridge looks like it'll last for less than 20 pages (its tiny). The cap is sort of a silly little thing that has to be pushed into the front end which I'm sure will get lost.

These are minor things I'm very happy with the product and highly recommend it to people that take lots of notes during interviews.
