    Anyone used one of these before?

    The old dear has asked me to get her one of these:

    DANE-ELEC DIGITAL zPEN Z PEN LIGHT WITH 1GB USB FLASH on eBay, also, Other Laptop Accessories, Laptop Accessories, Computing (end time 28-Nov-08 17:41:07 GMT)

    Has anyone used anything like that before? Are they any good?

    Is there a more reputable brand / supplier than ebay?

    Thanks.

    RB

    We had one given to us free after we bought a load of equipment off someone. Logitech one I think.

    In the politest possible way, it was a heap of crap.

    Maybe they've got a bit better but I wouldnt hold my breath

    I use a Z-pen and am quite impressed by it. The software is on the USB part (that also doubles as a drive) so can be moved and installed anywhere. I has a very good go at recognising my diabolical spelling and handwriting and so saves a lot of time getting notes typed up. However the best bit I've found is for diagrams if you want to get an idea across but need it in word format just draw it and it converts it.

    I got a AceCAD Digimemo after last years BETT show where I saw it being demo'd and came back and got it for the heads PA for her masses of meetings she goes to and she found it a great tool, its the one with the complete clipboard though rather than the clip on add-on these are.
