This review is open for all but to specially for my fellow law enforcement officers out there considering this device, I would like to let you guys know that this pen is well built and is really discrete, simple to power on and start recording. Video quality is ok and audio is excellent. It is well worth the money and if you are debating on a spy device particularly a pen you won't go wrong with this one. Stay Safe.
For the time stamp Zetronix manuel has some typos but when they give you the format it is missing a very simple period that tells the pen to make the change. When you make the .txt file the time and date format should look like this YYYY.MO.DY.HR.MN.SE (Add Y or N at the end if you want the time stamp to show) should look like this for example 2011.09.02.05.30.00Y
you will see what I mean if you buy the device and see there manuel hope this clears any frustration that may cause...
PROS: Well built, discrete and good quality audio and video.
CONS: None for me.
BOTTOM LINE: My first spy pen and it works as described, there may be a better device out on the market but if you are debating and don't have enough information on another device you won't go wrong with this one. Hope this helps.

This is honestly the highest quality video pen I have purchased or have seen. I have purchased pens that claim to be 960p (1280x960) for 40 dollars to 200 dollars and they do not even compare to the video quality in this pen. It seems like the other pens out there are up scaled or something. The video quality on this pen is really unbelievable.
I received this pen about 4 months ago, I was really hesitant at first to write a review even though I was really impressed with the video quality because I was not sure whether or not it would last or not. I have purchased other pens probably over a dozen from various other reseller including ebay, brookstone and other sellers and literally all of them died within 2 - 8 weeks of using the product, so as you can imagine I was a bit skeptical.
I called them first talked to their sale rep and asked them why is their pen more expensive than a lot of units out there and what makes them so different. I received this spiel about how they use only top quality products, Sony sensor and guarantee their products for at least a year, well 4 months later the product still works great. My entire force is getting these and I trust the quality of their product now so I guess what they told me was really true!..
PROS: Incredible video quality, well made, solid built lasts a long time!
CONS: Sound could be a bit better.
BOTTOM LINE: After trying over a dozen pens from various sellers this is truly the best quality pen on the market! Take my word do not fall for cheaper prices or higher resolution, this is the highest quality best video product on the market!

Great camera, really great recording, not noticeable; But somehow not what I hoped for. Really need an indicator to show that its recording...
PROS: Simple to use
CONS: No indicator if its recordng or not; So if somehow the button gets pressed somehow which happens all the time, it records. Then when you do need to record, you press the button and find out when you view it that your recording is not there cause it used up all the memory.
BOTTOM LINE: Good quality, clear video
