Livescribe Dot Paper

Livescribe smartpens only work with Livescribe Dot Paper, so there's a variety of dot paper sizes and types available: College-ruled Notebooks, Lined Journals, Blank Journals, Mini Journals, A5-sized Notebooks, Grid Notebooks, Flip Notepads, and Sticky Notes.

We wanted to let you know that we did just implement a new Echo replacement program for smartpens that have dimmed displays but are out of warranty. Please see this KB article for details:

Livescribe Customer Support
Tip: if you have extra long classes like I do, bring the charger with you. Mine usually can record about 3 hours before it looks like it may die on me, which isn't horrible considering all that it's doing for 3 hours straight.
UPDATE: I emailed Livescribe and was told my pen was out of warranty. They graciously offered me 20% off a new pen whose display will die right around when the warranty ends. I'm not going to throw my money away yet again. Please don't buy any pens from this company, they are knowingly selling defective items and not standing behind their product. I took a look at their "newest" offering: no display and it basically works by using your iPhone or iPad. So basically I have a pen that connects to my iOS device. Um, I can do that with a moleskine evernote notebook that is only a couple of dollars. Please check the forums if you want to purchase this pen, you will see the millions of complaints about these pens and no help whatsoever from the company.
The USB input on my Echo does not hold the usb connector. It seems the internal female port has slid slightly inside the pen and the male end cannot make the connection so it simply slips out and the pen cannot charge up or export.
I have contacted Livescribe technical support about this. I will post an update to comment on their responsiveness and level of support. Stay tuned...
Update: same day service. Live scribe sent an email requesting basic information. They are overnighting a replacement and will send a box for the return. You can't ask for more than that. For the inconvenience, I still say this little device is a masterpiece for enhancing productivity and communication.
