Elfinbook™ Mini Smart Reusable Elfinbook with Leather Case
Beautiful notebook! Also very fast shipping, it took 2 weeks to arrive to Croatia.
A rag is better to moisten a little
There was a slight odor upon opening, and some dust on my item. However, overall I think it is really nice and well-made. The color is more red than the deep coral it seems like in the picture, but the pages feel premium and I like the different pockets and types of pages in it. Good size to carry in your purse comfortably and comes with a wipe cloth too. Overall I highly recommend, nice gift for any student or professional.
If I could give it 4.5 stars I would be happy. Love the idea and the actual functioning of it. It'll be easier to just have my things on my phone, tablet, and computer. I send them to my Google Drive and it works like a charm. This book is literal magic. It's easy to write on: doesn't necessarily FEEL like paper (but then again it isn't, so why feel that way?) but the Frixion pens write really well on it regardless. Be careful and allow a few extra seconds for the ink to dry so that it won't smudge. I set it up so that immediately after I scan it, it will show up into my drive.
The reason for 4/4.5 stars instead of 5 is that many colors of Frixion brand pens do not show up well or at all. If you typically write your notes in black, blue, or red ink this is not a problem. I fell in love with the Frixion pens a few years ago and since then have exclusively bought Frixion brand. They are trusty; they write smoothly and erase well every time as long as the eraser is clean. I have the gel pens, the click pens, the markers, the pastel highlighters, and one regular yellow highlighter in this brand (i have a problem lmao) but I am a student and I use my pens all day long. They don't bleed through regular paper or anything. When a friend showed me this book I had to have it (what can I say, I am an office supply slut) and bought it immediately.
I'm going to attach my test pictures so that you can know which things work best with the Elfinbook.
I've included a color key at the bottom and highlighted which colors show up mostly true to color so that you can buy ones that are more likely to look nice once scanned. The pens stay put really well, the black marker fades easily, but overall the colors will show up.
Pens: All of the pens showed up once scanned. Some looked more like black than their actual color (1, 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25)
Markers: All of the markers showed up once scanned. Some looked discolored (35, 36, 37)
