    Has anyone used this? It looks pretty effective. But not sure of the quality of playback... Any suggestions?

    I got this system two or three years ago and used it in my physiology class. Loved it. It works well.

    I am also thinking about investing in one of these for nursing school. Does it pick up sound well if in a large lecture room?

    its pretty much a one trick pony, a girl used it in our class and shared her written notes. its great if u have good handwriting i dont. i think the ipad with one of the audio capture note taking apps would be a better more versatile fit. you could record audio and annotate PDF handouts from class.

    its cool , cant comment on audio quality sorry

    I recieved the Livescribe pen as a gift when I went back to school a few years ago. It really came in handy during nursing school. I used it mainly for the audio during lectures and the best part is Livescribe has an iPod/iPhone app where you can download and listen to all of your lectures on the go. Was great for listening in the car or when at my kids games and stuff. The best part was you get to keep everything private but are still able to share lectures and notes with people in your class. Playback audio is incredible even in a lecture hall with 70 other people. The only thing that drove me nuts was ink. Its like 5 bucks for a 4 pack of ink and not many stores carry it. Also the cartridges dont really hold that much ink. My campus store actually just started selling it so you can check there. We received power point handouts for our lectures so I would just use a regular pen and write on my handouts but used my Livescribe to audiotape the lecture. Another nice feature is if you have an instructor who lectures at warp speed (or who is as slow as a turtle) you can speed up or slow down the playback to where you are comfortable. I have an older model (about 2 of memory) and I had plenty of storage for everything. II hope this helps. If you want to ask me anything else please feel free.

    I recently started a thread and then stumbled across this one. I'd really like your feedback, thanks.

    I love my livescribe pen. I used it in A&P and microbiology. My A&P class was in an auditorium with about 150 people and my micro was a class of 25. It worked well with both of them.

    For audio, a quality digital recorder is better. I have a mid-quality/price Olympus that was awesome in nursing school. I have a Livescribe, gotta mess with special paper and it's just really a pain in the rump to me. Used it bout 2 weeks.
