    I thought I'd pass this on for any interested parties.

    $29.99 and $4.99 shipping. I thought it was a good deal and bought one, since I've been looking for a cheap digital recorder, and this one does video, too.

    I hope it works better than mine did. I ordered via a different site but the pen looks the same.

    The first one I received didn't work at all. The second (replacement after I paid shipping) worked for about a month. I used it twice just testing it and when I went to use it for real it was dead. It won't record or do anything and computers don't even see it if you plug it into a USP port.

    If anyone else has positive comments on the pen I would like to hear them. I paid $35 plus shipping twice for a dead pen. It does write in ink though (with a mini ink reserve I assume).

    I also thought it was the perfect solution. Too bad it sucked big time. Here is the website I ordered from: http://spypen.factoryoutletstore.com...FVRM5Qod_WnkKw

    Buyer beware, I guess. I've bought from this site before with no problems.

    That, of course, means nothing. But, for the 8GB version, I figured it was worth a shot trying out. If I'm out $35, it's not going to break me.

    Thanks for the input, though!

    The problem with a lot of these gadgets is that they're cheap imported junk, unlike regular voice recorders, which are well-made imports, and apparently managed to get beyond the gimmick stage or development.

    I bought a similar audio-only pen a couple of years ago, with an advertised recording time of (don't-remember) hours.

    I discovered it would turn itself off after only a few minutes, so it was pretty much worthless.
