        Here's a cute little A/V recording pen that gets the job done for all you 007 types. It's not the best quality, but it's quite amazing for the size: 30FPS 480p 2hr video in a standard size PEN. As a bonus, it has a separate HQ audio mode, and it works as a secret 4GB USB drive for storing sensitive files of any type!

        The only issue I had was that the single-button and LED operation is very confusing at first. Here's a rundown for anyone who wants it. In general, blue means recording, orange means idle, no LED means off.

        - Turn pen on/off: hold button 3 sec (auto-records video when turned on)
        - Record/stop video: press button in video mode
        - Record/stop audio: press button in audio mode
        - Toggle audio/video mode: triple-click button when stopped (orange LED)

        Blinking orange = audio mode, solid orange = video mode, blinking blue = recording video, solid blue = recording audio.

        Hope that helps!

        This pen is waaaay worse than there old version. Video quality was way better on the old sd pen. NOT HD. if you try to move camera while taking video picture turns into a blurry mess. Also sound quality is horrible.

        I wouldn't be complaining (I know its a pen) but I had the old version and it was a lot better. I thought mine was faulty but I exchanged it for another one and it was the same.

        Brookstone decided to go the cheaper route on there second version of this pen. Its a lot worse. I am disappointed.

                    I just used it once, after that I stored for a while and when I tried to use it again. It doesn´t worked... I've tried everything from charging for less than 4 hours (light is solid blue) to resetting. Nothing worked and I'm thinking I just bought a very expensive and no so cute ballpen!!!
                    I use to buy a lot from brookstore, but this was definitely a bad shopping desition.

                      I had a previous one, which broke w/o warranty left, so I had this bright idea of testing some of the others out there. I ended up keeping the Brookstone and trashed the others. Nothing I used compares in ease of use, quality of video and sound and design.

                      I bought one .. took it to the UK on a business trip.. day one it failed.... I needed it desperately so sent my secretary to the store to buy a new one and fed ex it to me. She did... worked for one day and same as first... No customer support at all... pushed . pulled and pressed everything a zillion times as per the information book.. reset it a number of times.. it started to work for no apparant reason... but now BOTH only do video no audio only.. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY... Cheaper to fly a secretary to a meeting and have her do shorthand.. absolutly useless product, If it had been one... ok BUT TWO in the same two week period !
