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.

I have very much enjoyed this device. It is incredible how it works, and is always a joy to use. I have found it hard putting it down for too long. It definitely is a great paper saver, and also is a good motivator--I write down tasks which I need to do on it, and I know I can not clear the device until I do them (so I get them done earlier rather than later).

Some comparisons and notes:
- The device is almost exactly the same size as a piece of standard computer paper folded top to bottom.
- The device is as thin as a stick of gum (those trident pieces which come 18 to a pack) for the writing area, then about 2x that size for the top portion (where the button is).
- The writing is darker than the images show, but is still clear (especially under better lighting).
- Writing on the tablet feels very natural. It is not perfectly smooth, but is similar to writing with a pencil on paper.
- The included stylus does not have the finest tip, though if you write lightly, you can have thin enough lines to fit plenty of text on the device.
- The battery should last through 50,000 clears. Meaning that if you clear the device ~137 times a day, it will last for a full year, ~68 times a day = 2 years, ~46 times a day = 3 years, ~34 times a day = 4 years, ... At that rate, the device will last longer than you will even hope it lasts. I have had the device for a few days, and have trouble even clearing it more than 10 times a day.

The device is made of plastic, and feels pretty fragile, but as long as you do not bend it, or put too much weight on it, the device will definitely last.

For the price, I am very pleased with my purchase, and I will continue to be looking at iMPROV ELECTRONICS products in the future.
