Pros & Cons

Pros

  • Portable scanning
  • Intuitive, and easy to use
  • With new free software, can scan handwriting and complex images
  • Becomes more accurate with continued use (a steady hand helps)

Cons

  • OCR software on the pen isn't fast enough to do more than one line at a time quickly (sometimes writing it out by hand is faster, and more accurate).
  • Doesn't live up to the accuracy claims, especially with complex URLs
  • High price (as of this writing, 169.00 USD)

Conclusion

The dream of a paperless office hasn't come to pass. The QuickLink pen won't change that, nor does it try. However, the QuickLink pen has the necessary features to potentially make notes easier to organize, paperless, and without the need to write or type anything out yourself. The use of the pen's software has an easy learning curve, however takes some getting used to simply because a steadier hand is required. The QuickLink pen is a novelty item, but one that (mostly) lives up to its claims. Wizcom Technologies has a device that makes note-taking potentially faster, and easier to organize.
