      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.

          Comments about HD Video Pen:

          It doesn't have the best video quality but hey, it's a pen camera. Unless you are paying $1000 or more, don't expect perfection. Writes well too.

          I, like many people it seems like, have had issues setting the correct date and time. My issue was that I had added the .txt extension when I was naming the file so it actually named it TIMECFG.txt.txt and the pen was not accessing the correct file. Right-clicked on the file, backspaced the .txt and hit enter to save it again and all was well. Here is exactly what you should have in your file:
          TIME,YYYY/MM/DD/HH:MM:SS;
          That's it. Just that one line. Change the YYYY to the year (2015), MM to the month (01), DD to the day (01), HH to the hour (20 [I prefer military time since it doesn't show AM or PM and it seems to work on here. 20 is 8pm by the way]), MM for the minutes (54) and finally SS for the seconds (00). I don't really care exactly what the seconds are so I just put 00 when I set it.

          One thing I read about the date/time file of this pen is that it depends what operating system you have. Some operating systems will recognize a text file and automatically save it as such (as mine did), so if your computer does, then do not add the .txt to your file name when you are saving it. If your pen is not reading the correct date/time, try renaming your file and deleting the .txt to see if that helps. It did for me.

I trusted your products to be reliable but I will never buy from you guys again. wasted my time and money for an expensive worthless pen. I tried resetting dozens of times and charging but not once did a light blink. completely broken. Brookstone you guys let me down.

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.
