Customer Reviews

My 6 year old LOVES her boogie board.
Keith Hollender
You can use a rubber band to hold the stylus in place (which is what I did), but it's kind of silly that they didn't just put a clip on the stylus.
Kyle Lowry
Now I can use my boogie board to jot down my notes.

We just got our Boogie Board in the mail today, and we absolutely love it! The thing is, the negative reviews on this product *do* make good points. The screen is not remarkably bright (it is obviously not backlit) and there is no way to save the work you have created- it is very truly a high-tech whiteboard. At the same time though, there are things to love: The boogie board is amazingly thin and is well-constructed. It comes with a pretty nice stylus, and the screen is *VERY* sensitive, I was shocked at how accurately it registers your penstrokes.

The key to loving this product is in your own use. It really is not a replacement for paper. I can see it used to doodle or sketch, create shopping lists, and write the odd note. We will be keeping ours in the kitchen so my wife can write down a shopping list, and using it to take down a phone number in a hurry or a little scribbled note, or quick reminders. I used four magnets and superglued them to the back so the Boogie Board will stick on the fridge perfectly.

We love our boogie board so far, and I think you will too: just be aware of what it is good for and what it isn't good for, and you should get a lot of enjoyment out of it.

I work as a tech support agent for a large and impersonal company. As such, I am inundated daily with calls from individuals seeking assistance with computer-related issues.

The first thing I do on each call is ask the customer some basic info., such as account #, which I scribble onto a sticky note or piece of scrap paper.

It doesn't take long for these scraps of processed tree pulp to pile up, filling my waste can and/or littering my desk. What I need, and what I got with this product, is a reusable writing surface, instantly erasable.

The writing is a semi-fluorescent green, not hard to read in average light, and erasure is as simple as pushing the button on top of the pad. The device is sturdy, reliable and just plain fun to use.

So why only 3 stars? Two things:

1.) Sometimes I have to save a customer's info. until later in the work day, when I have time to process an order they placed or make a change in their account. When this happens I have to whip out good old fashioned paper and write down what I need to know.

The Boogie Board, alas, can't help me in this situation, simply b/c there is no save function. If there were I could toss away the sticky note pad for good. As it is I've got one foot in the 21st century and the other in ancient Egypt, with Pharaoh's scribes forming letters on papyrus as the Nile flows lazily by.

2.) The stylus they included is wonderful, except for one gaping flaw. It can't be attached to the board. To someone as prone to losing things as I am this is a serious defect.

Personally I would like it to have one of those plastic coil thingies like the pens in the post office are attached to.

I bought this just to see how it works. It turned out exactly as I expected - an expensive, high-tech, Magna Doodle or Magic Slate.

- First the negatives -

As others have noted, the official images of the tablet are misleading. The actual writing on the tablet is a low-contrast, pale, greenish-grey color. It's no easier to read than a $.99 magic slate.

The battery is not user-replaceable either (not easily), meaning the tablet has to be thrown-away or recycled when the battery dies. But as others have also pointed out, 50,000 erase cycles should last quite a while.

I dismantled the tablet to take a look at the innards, and saw that it took a small watch battery which was somewhat soldered in place. By peeling back the upper decal on the front, unscrewing four tiny screws, and prying a soldered metal strip off the battery, you can actually replace the battery yourself. I highly recommend that you don't do this, though - as you're likely to ruin the device if you don't know what you're doing.

The device is very thin (about as thick as two stacked quarters), which makes it seem fairly fragile. Bending the tablet can cause permanent discoloration on the screen (the screen is actually composed of two sheets of plastic, with a third sheet of black rubber for backing, if the first two sheets of plastic become separated or bent, then it will become discolored).

The screen is very sensitive. It only takes the slightest pressure to make an image on the screen - so expect to see finger marks and plenty of stray lines.

Mounting the device requires buying a separate magnetic kit, or sticking Velcro to the back.

There is no built-in way to fasten or secure the included stylus to the tablet.

The Boogie Board works just how you'd expect it to. The pressure sensitivity is very fine on it and you can do everything from very small and light lines to thick and full lines. The included stylus is well built and telescopes from a compact 4.5" to 6.5" for larger hands. The tablet itself is very sturdy -- there's no fear of it being fragile or easy to break. The erase takes about a second to clear the screen and is ready for use again nearly instantly.

There are a few criticisms. First, and most important, there is some knuckle imprints that appear on screen when you're writing. While skin doesn't pick up on screen, any pressure will make an imprint however minor. Second, the size is very compact which means you can only fit about 100 words on the pad. Since there's no way to record the screen it makes it fairly useless for notes.

According to Best Tablet Review - [...] - the company is working on a version with SD card and USB as well as a larger, legal pad sized version. Those are both steps in the right direction.

This is still a great pad and lots of fun for $30. It's a solid 4 stars on concept and application. When the recordable version comes out, for around $50 according to the above website, it will be a definite buy for me.
