Livescribe Echo experience

I bought the 8 GB version of the Echo few years ago, This product is great but with time the disblay becomes lighter and lighter and finally does not display anything even if the recording is still working. But without display use is limited. I contacted the company and they do not sell spare parts and do not offer repair service. They say that they could offer a rebate if I buy a new one but unfortunately they do not ship to Canada. I have to find a friend in USA to acess their offer(And I do not even know the details of the offer) Really bad customer service. Sorry but I will not make the same error twice.

Great pen!

I'm really enjoying it....since best buy doesn't have all the accessories, I bought the rest from SmartpenCentral.

Awesome great battery life.

I wish the accessories such as the pen case were accessible in Canada and the three ring books had a specialized folder like the smaller notebooks.

Echo Review used for 3 years

Excellent customer service from the manufacturer. I got the extended warranty for it when I bought it (worth it). Spoke with them about the problem, determined it was a hardware problem not software had it replaced within the week directly from Livescribe. - does not upload to cloud, great if intellectual property rights must be protected in things like: meetings, schools etc for this model. It uploads to computer. The desktop software is easy to use ( same as using the book except on the computer with a mouse instead). - great time saver for finding information as you tap the paper if using the book, no need to search for where in the lecture, meeting etc the information might be recorded on. Tap and listen. No longer need to rewind and hope you have the right place in the recording. - only drawback is the low sound when listening on the pen. - the desktop sound is not an issue, clear and easy to use when you upload your notes. - easy to use and the manufacturer has a number of apps that you can also install for small fees. Such as speech to text (replaced dragon naturally speaking) when you want to convert your notes. - easy archive when you want to clear the notes you have taken off the pen and have moved on to other things. - the desktop interface is smooth and easy to use. I highly recommend this for anyone that wants ease of access to audio recordings!
