The SolidTek DM-L2 DigiMemo L2 8-1/2-by-11-Inch Digital Notepad is a stand-alone device that can digitally capture what you write and draw on regular paper--with no special paper or computer. The Digital Notepad remembers the strokes that you draw and when you are done, you simply plug the Notepad into your computer via USB and upload your notes. Then you will have both a digital and a paper copy. The included DigiMemo Manager software lets you easily view, edit, and organize your digital pages in Windows. The digital pages can be saved as BMP, JPG, GIF, or PNG formats. You can then easily share your digital pages with others, or highlight, annotate, and edit them.
When the pad is connected to a PC, it can function as a graphics tablet, with the writing on the paper and the writing on the screen synchronized. The DigiMemo L2 has a writing area of 8 by 11 inches and has 32 MB of built-in storage, with a CompactFlash memory card slot for expansion. The pad is light and thin, and isn't uncomfortable to hold or use. The battery of the pen can last about 14 months and the pad will last about 100 hours on four AAA alkaline batteries. The unit automatically shuts down after 30 idle minutes.

1. The problems begin with trying to do something with the file. It uses some type of very old proprietary software that requires conversion. Keeping track of what is on the tablet's disk and what has been transferred to the computer is cumbersome. Why not an option to automatically link to something like Evernote? The link to OneNote has never worked for me and I have the latest version of that. This should have been fixed in software updates...however see problem #2.
2. No software updates. This product has been around at least since 2008 and I have not seen any updates or even any attempts at updates.. it seems like this company has just given up at any attempt at improving the product.
3. Product quality is not up to par. The pen is just plain bad. Cheap plastic with end and caps that just fall off..they don't even attach solidly. The pen costs in the same range as a good entry-level fountain pen...with only 25% of the quality of the average entry fountain pen. The tablet itself is not terrible, but the battery covers are cheap and will break after two or three changes of batteries.
This product had promise, why hasn't a competitor taken this concept and run with it??
So far I tried: (1) a tablet computer, (2) a portable scanner, and (3) now this digital notepad. The DigiMemo L2 wins hands down as the easiest and fastest solution. I maintain my notes in Microsoft OneNote, and this adds my hand written notes to notes from my tablet, scanner, and keyboard..
I found I couldn't write precisely enough on the tablet computer to really capture a full page of text, and realized I really prefer writing on paper, especially when I'm trying to focus on my client during a meeting. So I switched to the scanner, which works well, but it's a bit time consuming to scan all the pages. I was wary of digital pens which are a lot like writing with a horse's leg, and which require specially printed paper. This digital notepad seems to work really well, with a pen that is normal sized and on ordinary paper.
- That I can take notes at any pace and fill the page and the DigiMemo L2 keeps up
- That when I add the pages to OneNote, they appear as handwriting (rather than images), which is fully searchable. The pen strokes are editable as if I entered them on a tablet computer. Also, it automatically fills in the date and time the note was taken - very helpful!
- That this device works with ordinary paper, and holds a standard tablet
- That the pen is normal sized and takes standard ink refills and batteries
- People think it's a clip board. It's very non-intrusive during meetings.
- Sync with the computer via USB or SD card
- The pen was more substantial;. It has a cap that looks easy to lose, and the back of the pen seems like it's going to fall off when I remove the cap from it. It's really a cheap junky thing, but it works. I sent for some real Cross refills hoping they will be nicer to write with.
- There was an option for merging multiple paper pages into one page in OneNote (there is a "Gem" add-in for OneNote that merges the pages after, and that's fine)
- The clip board could be a little lighter and thinner, but it's not bad.
Overall this is the best tool I've found for capturing paper notes on my computer. You have to tell it what page you're writing on using the buttons on the upper left face; it's very easy. I use a Lenovo W540 running Windows 8.11 (64-but) and OneNote 2013 (32-bit) and it all works flawlessly.
It would be great to see an updated version from SolidTek - this thing has been around for years! My wish list for the next version:
- Nicer pen (if you want to keep the price down, offer a nicer pen as an add-on. I'd gladly pay more for a real writing instrument that is nicer to hold, properly balanced, and smoother writing!)
- Wifi or Bluetooth sync
- Lighter weight and thinner clip board
If you've been on the fence about buying a digital pen or notepad, and if you like writing on paper - this is it. Go for it, it works!
+ Works for 5+ years without an issue!
+ Works with any standard weight paper or ink pen!
+ Amazing accuracy of duplicating what's on paper
+ Very easy to upload notes to any computer (desktop, tablet) and even further modify them
+ Very sturdy writing surface
+ Could be a little bit lighter
If they could somehow make a foldable writing surface that was still very sturdy so that this could be taken on airplane trips more easily, that would be incredible!
Also, I didn't bother with the portfolio that they sell - instead I stopped by at OfficeMax and got myself a large portfolio, got rid of a binder from it, and I carry the tablet, pen, and spare paper in it instead. The benefit of that is that for the meetings I take the tablet out of the portfolio, so I don't have the giant portfolio take up half of the meeting table - it almost looks like just a writing pad.
- great accuracy,
- regular paper,
- regular batteries (2xAAA for the tablet, plus a watch battery for the pen),
- the pen uses regular ink and the refills can be bought from several places,
- regular SD card to expand memory (not that you'll really need it if you use it with OneNote),
- integrates with OneNote 2010.
- the SD card must be one of the older ones - they don't support more than 2GB, and you can't just partition a bigger one and format it down - it must be actually a 2GB SD card,
- doesn't integrate with OneNote 2013 at the moment yet (other than saving to PDF and importing as a print out).
