Customer Reviews of 4GB USB Spy Pen - Digital Pocket Video Recorder Ballpoint Pen
Item received did not work at all4/29/2015
I procured this item not expecting the best but at least operable. The item did not work at all even after following the instructions and statement from the manufacturer. The Manufacturer stated they would replace the item and this never happened. My advice is to stay away.

Waste of time and money2/2/2011
The first order received was DOA. It was promptly replaced by Dr.Hotdeal. The replacement was also DOA. I refuse to waste anymore time with this item and am ready to write it off as junk.
Piece of Junk1/21/2011
This device is waste of money. I bought two of these and DOA. I have asked for a replacement and received. Still DOA. I have tested this device to a Windows 2000, XP, Vista and WIN7 - none of these machines can even detect this piece of junk. What a waste of money and time. Returning to get a refund. Beware on this product - it is a scam.
Works after you get proper instructions1/20/2011
I almost wrote a very negative review of this item. I could not get it to work. However, you must load DivX Codec on your computer to see the video recorded on the pen. Go to http://www.divxmovies.com/codec/ to download the DivX Player. Then go to the .AVI file that is on your phone to play it on your computer. It actually is not that bad once you learn how to use this pen. I could not get the video files to play on other software. So the Key is getting the DivX Player to play the video files you have on your pen!
Don't waste your money!1/19/2011
This item is a piece of crap. I couldn't even let my 11 yr old nephew use it as a toy. I should have read all the reviews before purchasing.
I BOUGHT THIS PEN FROM DR.HOTDEAL THROUGH BUY.COM. IT'S PIECE OF JUNK. NOT WORKING AT ALL. BASICCALY, IT'S A TRICK...WELL I GOT TRICKED BY THIS DR.HOTDEAL AND BUY.COM. THIS PERSON DIDNT REPLY MY EMAIL OF REPLACEMENT OR REFUND. THE LAST TIME I BOUGHT FROM BUY.COM AND OF COURSE, DR.HOTDEAL, IF HE/SHE'S STILL USING THAT NAME. I NOTICE THE SELLER IS iSource now.
Doesn't work, similar to previous posts. Cool concept, my guess is the lot sold via buy.com was old and the internal batteries are bad.
Doesn't work for me like everyone else1/12/2011
I bought this pen and it doesn't work at. I running Vista, USB drive window pops up saying unrecognized device. Could you please publish the driver file somewhere so that people like me can go and get it. Everyone who is complaining didn't get the CD therefore it'll not work without the device driver software. Appreciate your help.
The shipping was fast ..Bottom line..the pen does not work..is a piece of junk. I charged it then plugged into my computer. The orange light came on during charging and it stayed that way. I reset it , but the orange light stayed on, no recording , does not open , does not function at all.. Sorry for my 20 bucks..!!! Buy.com should ban these kind of junk sellers. I won't buy from this guy again for sure.
Junk, unless it works for more than 1 hour10/4/2010
Did have a decent picture trip at Walmart shopping and failed after an hour and was impressed, if only my odds weren't so bad to try again. 3 different sellers, 1st was DOA, 2nd worked 1 hour, 3rd another DOA I'd even pay more for this, bad production runs happen, a pair were 4GB, other was 8GB. Btw 1 pen came with a CD and was easy to set the date, poorly written English language. The 1 worked well with Win 7 64-bit.
Worth a Try9/16/2010
For the price you pay, the pen works great. It certainly is not going to replace any cameras, but a fun item.
Software is a joke9/9/2010
I bought this pen hoping I could use it to record meetings and for fun. But the software that came with it is a joke. It doesn't work. i ended up having to use a Kodak "media impressions" program from my digital camcorder to download the video. The instruction seem like they were written by a 5 year old are unreadable. Other than the poor software and no support, it can take a reasonable picture with decent sound. But forget it if there is any movement in the video. You can't make out anything because it is so blurry. Make sure you have plenty of light because it doesn't work in low light environments. Don't expect crisp pics. The bad news is that Buy.com will not refund your money, only exchange it for another pen. It is OK for a toy, but not for anything else. Save your money.
This thing doesn't work!!!! And it was used because there are jpeg pixs on it and the pictures are of a dirty room with chinese news papers every where. this is a waste of my hard earned money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It does the job! Sound and Video at Decent quality, easy to use and easy to retrive the video.
Seems Good to me6/23/2009
The pen I got does have a CD with driver that works and a clear instruction book. Works fine for me. It requires decent lighting for the video to come out good though, but thats expected from a camcorder this small.
Awesome for the price!6/18/2009
This spy pen is pretty nice considering the price. It takes videos in an .AVI file and once you install the codec (included) you can just plug it in via USB and transfer video quickly and easily like a flash drive. There is even sound on the videos. I know it's not an HD camcorder but for a fun way to shoot video, this item gets 5 stars from me.
The Pen that can't be configured6/5/2009
Nice concept. I can even take some video with it. However, none of the drivers work (actually there isn't any driver on the disc that is useful). The english translation of the products instructions are poor. I still haven't figuered out how to change the encoded 1980 date on the recordings. The product needs serious support, or at least a DVD that tells you something useful about how to operate and configure it. The presence of useful drivers would also help. The only driver listed is for Windows 98! It tells you to place the configure file in the root of the DVD pen (this would be useful if there was a writable directory or file) there isn't one. Basically, unless they improve the documentation and instructions it is a waste of money.
