Hi Eva,I've been using the Pulse pen since it came out and find the pen and
the software quite good. I used it at our user conference and even gave it
to some users so they could describe something to me while they drew
diagrams. I found the sound fine and there are some adjustments for
sensitivity and a special mike that you wear. I like that you can use codes
to note where there was something useful. The software allows you to speed
up the sound which is helpful and since you can bookmark or code good stuff,
the pen is quite useful and efficient. The company is continually improving
the software and I believe you can now print your own paper on a laser
printer. There is a version for the Mac as well as the PC. I've been
experimenting with pen based systems for probably 15 years and this is the
first one that is truly useful. You can buy them on sale at Target for $179
and buy nice looking black notebooks - lined or unlined.
