I'm very disappointed with what seems to be very poor quality with ink refills available for the Live Scribe pen. For example ..today I put a new refill in (my last couple of refills hadn't run out but the ink flow was so inconsistent and far from smooth) and it started out beautifully smooth with crisp lines but after five pages of writing (A5 lined journal) the quality had deteriorated to the extent that I just about need to replace the refill even though it clearly has not run out of ink.
Is this a known issue? Is it being addressed? Is there an alternate refill available. For other writing purposes I've found that Monte Verde (?) produce very smooth reliable refills. [I have no connection with Monte Verde other than having bought their products].
