Bought this Pulse Smartpen to assist me in my University studies - it has now become indispensible, I can't live without it! Using the required dot-paper, I can write out my lecture notes by hand onto the paper whilst recording audio from my tutor. It's then easy to tap onto the paper later - onto your handwriting on the paper - to hear back the audio which you were writing along to. In other words, you will "never miss a word" (their catchphrase!), because you can listen back to the audio and fill in any blanks in your notes. Then dock your smartpen (the dock comes with the pen) and it will automatically upload your handwritten notes and the audio onto your PC, where you can share them/store them/print them. The only flaws are that because the pen's microphone is really sensitive (it picks up peoples' voices extremely well and clearly), it also picks up the sound of your pen whilst you're writing. So sometimes when I play my notes back I can hear the sound of the nib writing on the paper rather than hearing the tutor's voice clearly! If you use the headphones that come with it though, and just place the headphones by your shoulders and you get a clearer sound as the microphone picks up audio better. Another flaw is that although you CAN print your own dot-paper, instead of purchasing it, you will need a "special printer", and even though my printer cost me a lot of money, it isn't able to print the dot-paper out. Another thing is that the pen DOESN'T convert your handwriting into text, BUT you can purchase a reasonably cheap app (20GBP ish) which converts your handwritten notes to text, well worth buying if you want to circulate your notes but have scruffy handwriting. I would definitely recommend this pen if you're a student or meet with clients regularly or have to attend meetings - you will soon wonder how you ever lived without it! I now can rely on the pen to ensure I have no mistakes in my notes and no information gets missed out. I love it!
