I've owned this pen (Zetronix 8GB DVR) for a couple of months now and after over 20 hours of use it's still working like a champ. As a professional video editor, I was most surprised at how much better the video quality was than I expected. In fact, all I've done with it is shoot video, and I've never yet been disappointed. The trickiest thing for me was learning to adjust my body to the appropriate angles to get the best shots, but once I got used to it I was off and running. As a helpful hint, I found that a little piece of black tape on the back covers the LED light perfectly -- in case you wanted to be as stealth as possible :)

PROS: Really good video quality (you really get what you pay for here), good, durable design. Very inconspicuous-looking pen with the black body.

CONS: Battery time is not (for me, anyway) the advertised "about 2h" -- it's more like an hour and 15 minutes continuous use.

BOTTOM LINE: Though I wish battery life gave me 2 hours of video shooting, it's really my only gripe; and I've quickly gotten used to the hour and fifteen minutes I do get -- mainly because everything else about the Zetronix DVR pen is excellent. Happy spying :P

I had minor issues: one being you can't read the manual that comes in the box and secondly video wasn't showing on my computer. I contacted the live support for Zetronix and was immediately emailed PDF file with a readable manual...perfect! The next morning for my video test dry run no video but you can hear audio. I have Quicktime on my computer and found the program has issues with the Pen. Once again, the Live Support hooked me up immediately! I was sent to a link, downloaded application, and like magic, I'm back in business. On a side note, the Live Support in both cases stayed on-line until all these problems were resolved. Now, the pictures and video are very, very clear even when lighting tries to wash out the images. Excellent.! Thanks again Zetronix. Dawn

PROS: Everything

CONS: The manual sent in box - a magnifing glass can't read!

BOTTOM LINE: The product and live support can't be matched with others

Superior video quality and I was amazed on how sensitive it was to sound, the pen can hear much better than me. I was a little skeptical because it was so cheap but I was really impressed with the quality. I needed some help on using it as a web cam and the people in chat were very helpful. At 1st bought one of these for 40 dollars from another website and it broke in 2 weeks and the video quality even the same resolution was very poor. I waited a few months to write this review to make sure the pen still worked..ha..It does and its great.

I own a mechanic shop and got this pen for me and my employees to keep in the pocket. The neighborhood is not too great and wherever things get a little heated when a customer does not want to pay I always have it in my pocket in on mode, I just press a button discreetly and with out them knowing I record everything I see with sound. Had an incident where a customer blatantly did not want to pay just grabbed the keys from out of the desk and drove away. For the 1st time I did not stress about it, just called 911 few seconds after, the police came in asked me if I had proof. Took the pen plugged it to my PC and bam there was the video clear as ever with sound and everything. I was actually amazed how good the quality was, the police man was so impressed with how good it worked he is gonna get one too haha. Great device.

Its amazing what this Pen Can do. I was so confused about the use of the Pen, until someone from Zetronix gave me step by step instructions online, via live chat. This help is more than I expected, i'm happy with the Pen, and even more happier about the help, they didn't just sell me a product leave me without a clue, they helped me. I will save them in my favorites. And yes, the Pen is amazing.
