The Digimemo 692 Digital Notepad made sense to me for several reasons; 1) it is cheap - $90 + or - is a small risk to take on a new technology; 2) if you use it and the technology fails, you are left with the ultimate safe, low tech backup - ink notes on paper 3) it is lighter and easier to use when on the move (walking through a building taking notes, or sitting in a meeting where a laptop would be awkward for instance). The main question for me was how well the handwriting recognition could be made to work.

So far I am cautiously pleased. DM works as advertised. The unit is light, the pen comfortable in the hand, and writing is faithfully recorded.. The image on the computer screen is a faithful representation of the page (occasionally small strokes are missed),

The software interface for dumping pages on the PC is acceptable - it could be smoother but works without any glitches or major hassles. Actually, I rarely used it, since most of my uploading is done directly to the Hwr recognition program (more below). It is surprisingly good a recognizing tables as tables/spreadsheets.

For me, this unit would be largely useless without HWR. I found that Myscript does a surprisingly good job of reading my scrawl (it is a scrawl - my handwriting is terrible, I often print more than write, but found it reads script about as well as printing). If you write neatly the whole process is much easier.

Myscript is particularly useful if you 1) use the built in training program (helped some) and 2) create lists of words ("Personal Lexicon") and shorthand conversions ("Auto replacements"). The former is good to aid recognition of specialized and technical terms, names, etc. The latter is the most useful feature, though.

I use this notepad to take notes during meetings. The great advantage to me is that there is an electronic version of my notes that I can file away.

Other reviewers have made adverse comments about product quality -- I have had a good experience. The unit I bought seems well made, and has so far (3 months use) functioned well. Also, the paper pad for this is easily available. Look for the CVS or Mead brand 6x9 writing tablet and it should fit the Digimemo 692 perfectly.

There are three drawbacks you should be aware of:

Sometimes, there are ghost lines, or some words get dropped off. Generally this is not a big issue, but nevertheless, it is an annoyance. It is remedied (for the most part) by holding the pen straight, and using uniform pressure.

It is a digital note taker -- but will require extra software if you want to convert your notes to text. I've not felt the need, but be advised.

The Mini-USB cable's mini-USB end is thinner than the regular mini-USB cable. So if you lose your cable, your choices are to (a) buy a new one from the manufacturer or (b) take a regular mini-USB cable and file off the plastic around the part that goes into the device until it fits in.

With these caveats, the digimemo is a good device for taking notes and preserving an electronic copy of them on your laptop. Paired with software like PDF995, you can easily and inexpensively store all your notes as PDF documents.

Verified Purchase
I ordered one from J&R over the weekend and received it Wednesday. I'm very happy about it so far.

The product actually looks and feels a lot better than its picture projects. The operation is very easy and straightforward.

The notepad is the standard 6x9 (the actual writing size is a bit smaller: 5.9x8.3; but who cares?), available almost everywhere. (I bought a 200-page writing pad 6x9 from Stop & Shop for $4.00. I'm sure less expensive ones are available elsewhere.)

The built-in memory card allows for at least 160 pages before the memory is full. With CF card so cheap nowadays, one can easy get a separte card to use.

Battery life (4 AAA) is 100 hr. I think it's a very good deal overall. If you are thinking of getting a tablet PC to do digital hand-writing, this one should be better in that regard, since it's much lighter and less expensive.

COns:

1) Despite that the software is very nice, it does not do OCR. As a result, your handwriting cannot be converted later into a text file. Although personally I don't think it's a big deal, it would be the software could do that, given today's OCR technology.

1) It doesn't come with a protective case. For something like that, you really cannot treat it like a $4 pad. It would be nice if it comes with a leather case we can put it in and carry it around. But I guess one can get one portfolio to deal with that.

I got this to take notes at a month long scholarly conference, and to take notes on my reading before hand.

Positives:
--It records my handwriting and doodles just fine.
--The right size pads are available at every Office Depot
--Refills for the ink are easily available (Cross pen refills).
--battery sizes are pretty standard, too.
--It is a cinch to open up single pages straight from the hard drive by clicking on them, and you can open an entire set of pages with the software and export them as one single PDF file.
--Any program that will import a pdf or tif can use the exported pages, including OneNote. I have quite good results importing images into Word and annotating there, too.
--The pen does not feel cheaply lightweight (as do the styli for notebook computers), nor is it excessively large or clunky. It does not feel like a quality writing instrument, of course, but it's quite comfortable to use.

Negatives:
--the page images record lines, which are annoying -- they do not correspond to the lines on the pad, and my writing is invariably askew on the image even if it is perfectly straight on the page.
--The OCR software is about 85% accurate with my scribble even after "training", and considerable editing effort would be required to make a printout presentable. Since the OCR software costs as much as the device itself, I will not be upgrading after the trial.
--After decades of keyboarding, I actually CAN'T write well with good pressure and clarity with a ball point cartridge without causing writers cramps. Until they invent a roller ball model, I guess my hand muscles just have to be in training.
--From the promotional website, it seemed that the software would help you organize your notes.
