    Looking at buying some digital paper and the associated pen, any recommendations, or is it all ***** and over-sold?

    I used to take lots of paper notes, but stopped a couple of years ago when I realised I never looked at them again. Now I'm looking to go back to paper again to aid my information retention, but this time I'd like a better storage system, searchable notes etc. Digital paper looks to meet my needs, but am not sure if it works in practice.

    Huge number of negative reviews so spending £130 on this doesn't seem wise. Alternatives?

    You might look at Rocketbook. I was an early backer, and it works well. You write in the notebook, photograph it with an iPhone/Android, and your notes get stored. If you use an erasable pen when you have a full notebook, you just pop it in the µwave to erase it. Overall, I thought the product was well executed.

    Shortly after getting the Rocketbook, I started using an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil, which is a much better solution (in my opinion). So I haven't used this in a while.

    I would love one of these, but not for half of what it costs and I'm not sure what I would use it for. I just want it.

    I've just ordered one of these:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Whitelines-Link-Lined-Notebook-Paper/dp/9174551523/

    Uses proper paper and works with any pen. Cheaper than the Rocketbook too, so if it doesn't work out, I'm not down much. I had a look at the Rocketbook and not keen on writing on plastic / using specific pens which I will invariably lose.

    Not too keen on having to scan every page (both Rocket & Whitelines) but a good taster.

    Looks like one of Sony's e-Readers. I have one of those (previous generation). It's nice to use, but there is a significant lag when using the stylus. Still, a large 13" e-reader screen is sexy as ****.
