G-Note 5000 digital note taker review

 

The concept is nothing new, it is that of the digital pen and paper: take notes on the paper pad and everything you write or draw is also immediately copied onto the built-in 32MB of Flash memory as a digital image that can be transferred to your PC...

Versatile, lightweight, much cheaper than a tablet PC

Disappointing software, image quality, flimsy pens

An odd hybrid of digital notepad and graphics tablet that still requires both pen and paper

Consumer review by:

Cumbersome & Cheap

 

I got this to carry with me in a factory instead of paper clipboard, but sending back as no improvement to piles of paper. Re paper - where do you find A5 in the US anyway?

Feature of writing notes then saving to disk is a good ideal. Can work as a tablet control or paper/digital note pad, can write in two colors with two pens

Pens are pretty much useless. No caps, can't carry them around, can't use any other type, and they break really easily ; Can only image documents as .dnt files which aren't supported by anything, have to use their software and convert to get to an OCR...

Product Specifications

Very compact and eye-catching, the G-Note 5000 from Genius is the most innovative and ideal device for students, sales, hospital or insurance employee and mobile users to take notes, draw or capture inspirations anywhere, anytime. When you have a meeting or are attending class, the light and portable G-Note 5000 is your best partner. Put normal paper on the digital pad and turn on the power, then you can write down everything you want with the digital pen. What you wrote is immediately saved in the digital pad's memory. The built-in 32 MB memory can store up to five hundred pages, and there is a file management function. You won't lose anything you wrote and you can manage your recordings very easily and efficiently. When you come back to the office or home, you can connect G-Note 5000 and your computer with the USB cable. Then you can transfer your data from G-Note 5000 to the PC (just download the Digital Organizer software first). With a variety of tools in the Digital Organizer, you can view, organize, annotate and edit the digital pages. Furthermore, you can copy or attach the pages into Outlook Express, Word, PowerPoint or Excel and share them with others by e-mail. You will be surprised how smart the G-Note 5000 really is. G-Note 5000 has other convenient and creative functions. The multiple color pen recognition (black and red digital pens) lets you take notes clearly. Plus, you can use G-Note 5000 smoothly with either hand because of the rotation function. Because you can rotate your G-Note 5000 in four directions, you can also take notes vertically or horizontally as you wish. When G-Note 5000 is connected to a PC, you can use the digital pad as a tablet and the digital pen can move on the pad just like how a mouse works. Don't worry about running out of paper and digital pen cartridges. You will find three backup cartridges in the battery compartment and you also can go to any ordinary stationery store to buy normal paper and cartridges for replacement. Portable, fashionable, user-friendly and smart functions - G-Note 5000 is your best tool in your mobile life.
