From a previous Livescribe 3 user, this pen beats Livescribe's hands down.
First of all, this pen is sleek, much smaller than the Livescribe pen, and very little wiggle and clicking from the ink cartridge (for those of you that owned the Livescribe 3, you know what I am referring to). This pen is more pressure sensitive in my notebooks, and it is much easier to write with since it is thinner and well balanced. Also, this pen offers a passcode so you can have to security against someone taking your pen and pairing it with their device and getting all of your saved documents off of the pen.
From the perspective of a person new to smart pens, this is an excellent one to start out with. This one is easy to plug and play (charge it up, download the app, once it is charged go into the app and follow the instructions on screen. Viola!) Start writing with your notebooks (only the compatible Neo notebooks) and your data starts transferring immediately. If you have Evernote access, which I highly recommend for students or anyone using personal devices for business, then you can pair them instantly with Evernote as well.
Bottom Line: No regrets on this purchase. I love the pen and I am super thrilled to be able to use this in my studies and professional life.
