1. There is no pocket clip, cap, or other non-cylindrical part that prevents the pen from rolling off the table when you set it down
2. Pen is very fat-- feels like you are writing with a magic marker and calls undue attention (although when I explain what it is people are AMAZED)
3. Failed to upload the voice recording once... and I have heard some other stories of this occurring. Software is probably a bit buggy (but has worked 90% of the time for me) Thankfully the voice recording was still in the pen.
Overall I'm very happy with the product, even though it means I have to buy their special paper!
I've never had it fail. It always picks up everything I write. I think this could be a really valuable tool for anyone in college. It's a little bit of a touchy item in a corporate setting because people don't usually want to be recorded.
You don't have to record audio though. You can just start writing on your note pad and it will record what you write without audio.
People complain about needing to purchase paper but it's not really that expensive. If you're really concerned about that, livescribe lets you download "dot paper" from their website that you can print on your home printer which works exactly like their pre-printed dot paper.
I just bought one for my Father and I'm planning on getting at least 2 more as gifts for Christmas.
I only have one gripe but it doesn't detract from my 5 star rating. I wish it came bundled with the software that turned your handwriting into type. You can purchase it for an additional $30 which isn't that bad, and some versions of this pen come with it bundled so shop around.
The pen is easy to use for the most part, but there are a few tips which I found by reading reviews. If you write while speaking and don't use the microphone on the headset, you will hear the pen scratching on the paper which is very annoying. The headset which came with the pen looks like ordinary earbuds to use if you wanted to listen to a pencast after creating it. But each ear piece has a microphone in it. When I am preparing a lesson, I hang the wires around my neck so that the microphones are in front of me. No more scratching noise! The sound is perfect.
The written documentation is minimal. I strongly recommend reading critiques of the pen online. This is where I got the idea of using it for my classes.
Not a chance I would ever invest in a new one. Now it is just a very expensive ball point pen.
