I wonder if there is a version that has wifi and an app so you can sync and save the message/drawing to your phone/tablet/computer. If not, then how about wifi to print?

I have a feeling people are going to suggest buying a $100 to $200 tablet.

So this one is better? Worth the extra $9?
If I buy something that is not in deep discounted, my father will punish me; everyone will laugh at me. I will be the strange kid who doesn't fit in.

Boogie Board has an app for their lower end units, basically like CamScanner where it uses the camera. Boogie Board Sync costs way more but does what you're describing I think.

Bought one for school. Free returns if it's bad. Thanks OP +1 for free shipping code too!
I tried to return a cable I bought (same parent company) and they were going to charge a restocking fee, so I kept it.

Can't say if I just got a bad unit but the one that I got from the Source for $2 isn't worth even the $2... very faint lines when writing and the erasing doesn't work very well... It's probably OOS anyways so it's not really an option. I have one from Costco (Boogie Board?) and it's WAY better (forgot if it was $10 or $15). Thought of getting this one from 123 but don't need another one. On the plus side, this one is magnetic (if that matters to you).

As far as the comment about free returns - YMMV. Had an issue recently and it was resolved but was a bit of a pain for something relatively simple IMHO. Good luck!
I can't afford to save that much!

Can't you just use a tablet, your finger and app to do the same thing as this device?
This is an eWriter where the screen is always on without using any power. (power is consumed primarily when you erase the screen)

So how long do you think your kids will be drawing for? Do you think they will it's the battery on your tablet?

I think an app on the tablet is much more versatile. Brush thickness, colors, screenshot it, save the picture, print it etc.

A tablet is clearly more versatile, but this product is not a substitute good for tablets. It's more a replacement for pen & paper for things that you don't need to keep track of permanently, like notes on a fridge (hence the magnetic mount), and for people who're interested in the novelty of this type of tech.

Let them use old school pencil crayons and paper then. This technology is Overkill for simple drawing.

I'm sorry but this stuff drives me crazy. It's like electronic dice... would you buy that too?

What's wrong with the old school dice, you pick it up and you roll it and then you add two numbers less than 6 each.
